To complement our SS14 menswear collection which was inspired by the style of leisure time, this season we’re asking our favourite menswear bloggers how they stay looking sartorially sharp while relaxing or sojourning.
Join the impossibly well-dressed Matthew Zorpas of The Gentleman Blogger as he visits fashionable London hotspots dressed in Reiss SS14.

Location: Hyde Park Corner, London
Taking regular walks in the park is a great part of a healthy lifestyle. History walks, night walks, wildlife walks, getaway walks… or just walks to help you discover more about yourself and easily clear your mind and get inspired.
As one of the most famous parks in the world and one of London’s eight Royal Parks, Hyde Park needs no introduction. For me personally it is one of the greatest city parks and is perfect for a refreshing break in-between intensive meetings and long working hours. Don’t be shy! Go ahead and take a midday rest, break and refuel, re-energise… it makes the rest of the day go more smoothly.
The Garda three-piece suit is one of my favourite picks from SS14 Reiss collection. The ultimate staple of London fashion, a three-piece suit offers classic style and is great for formal days and evenings. You can dress it up with a sharp shirt and tie or dress it down by making few tweaks (try swapping the trousers for jeans). It’s one of the most versatile items that a man can own.
Matthew wears: Garda suit and the Driver shirt.
Location: Syon House, Syon Park, London
Imagine spending a weekend at the country home of the Duke of Northumberland, with access to 40 acres of private gardens in Syon Park. Add some intensive chess games and good company and you have the recipe for the perfect weekend getaway.
Pair a crew neck jumper with a stitch detail shirt worn beneath to give your outfit more structure and a polished appearance. As the UK’s weather is unpredictable make sure that you don’t forget to add a waterproof mac to your must-have weekend getaway list.
Location: Hilton Syon Park, The Duke’s Parlour Room, London
The Hilton London at Syon Park is only seven miles away from the city of London and whenever you feel like unwinding or pampering yourself at a relaxing spa after those long hours of hard work, you can’t fail to enjoy a visit.
Think carefully about what you need to pack in your weekend bag. Look no further than this spring smart/casual look from Reiss’ SS14 collection. A crew neck jumper and a pair of tailored cotton trousers will be perfect for your long strolls at the park, a picnic with loved ones, or for a chess game with your mates.
