FESTIVE STYLE TIPS FOR GUYS

01.12.12

Yesterday, we caught up with our Head of Personal Shopping, Alicia Elliott, who ran us through what she'll be wearing and gifting this Christmas. So today we look to Alex McCart, our Menswear Tailoring Manager, to answer our quick-fire fashion Q&A to help see you through the festive season in style.

What will you be wearing this party season? 

As formal as you can get, black tuxedo, hand tied bow tie, white bibbed shirt with a double cuff (if I can find a nice one) and even a black satin cumberbund! I like the formalness of a tux, it always looks great, as long as it fits well.

Who’s your party style icon? 

As cliché as it sounds it would have to be James Bond, especially Sean Connery in Dr No and Daniel Craig in that midnight blue Tom Ford tux. I also like the way Ryan Gosling wears a number of different coloured tuxes and velvets.

What’s your desk to dancefloor style tip?

Your shirt is just as important as your tux. So make sure you have a fresh white shirt to go out in, don’t think you can get away with that grubby white shirt you have had on all day at work!

What’s on your Christmas wishlist?

The Bauhaus hooded parka, the Picton checked three-piece suit and the Bridge double-breasted blazer in navy.

Who’s the trickiest person on your xmas list and what will you buy them?

My girlfriend! She knows what she likes, and loves boots, so I know she would like the Bailly in black.
