MWD: SMART MEETS OFF-DUTY DRESSING

26.12.13

Dressing for work and dressing for leisure needn't be mutually exclusive. Hero pieces from your smart and casual wardrobes can work together in perfect harmony, enabling you to mix, match and cut a dash.    

A well-cut blazer may feel most at home in the boardroom, but the beauty of this hero piece is that it will add tailored flair to all manner of casual ensembles, smartening up your look in the process. For chilly wintry days team yours with a tee, a knit and an overcoat. And, when temperatures tumble dramatically, pair with denim and a natty knit for an off-duty look with sartorial sharpness.

Take steps towards fashion finesse by partnering your best leather shoes with casual classics such as jeans, twill or corduroy trousers. When used as part of a relaxed ensemble, formal footwear demands a pair of socks which utilise pattern, colour and weave to make stylish strides during downtime.

Give an otherwise buttoned-up look an air of insouciance by donning a colourful casual coat with an unstructured silhouette. Whether it's a highlighter hue or a punchy pattern you choose, a casual coat is the ideal way to offset sharp suiting.

Few items are deserving of the title 'wardrobe staple', but the simple tee has more than earned its place in the roster of menswear must-haves. This winter, think not of the humble tee as a laid-back precursor to your statement pieces, but rather build your cold weather wardrobe around it. When worn with an irrepressibly dapper cast of winter accessories and layers, the tee will lend your look an aesthetic which expertly treads that smart/casual line.

Give sharp tailoring a new lease of life by pairing its establishment-appeal with the rebellious charm of laid-back leather. Our Napoli suit is a modern three-piece suit which abides by classic rules of tailoring, but when worn with our Temper leather bomber jacket, the look becomes instantly road-ready.
