AN INVITATION: OCCASIONWEAR IN PARIS

10.04.15

The streets of Paris provided the backdrop for our latest fashion shoot, An Invitation. Consider it your sartorial guide for this season’s slew of social occasions.

PEAK INTEREST

Forgo a bow tie in favour of silk tie when wearing a peak lapel suit, for turned-down formality.

THE MAGIC NUMBER

Embrace the formality of a three piece suit for top-to-toe tailored perfection.

PIPE DREAM

Harking back to menswear’s finest moments, a piped cardigan offers a refreshing alternative to a formal shirt.

RAISE THE BAR

The simple addition of a collar bar has the ability to transform a tailored look.

BLUE COLLAR

A stylish alternative to a peak or notch lapel blazer, a shawl collar can easily be dressed up or down.

TO FINISH

Don’t overlook the ability of a natty waistcoat to add the sharpest of finishing touches to a formal look.

IN CHECK

Want to wear pattern in a stylish yet subtle way? Opt for navy checked suiting which offers just a hint of interest.

LIGHT AS LINEN

For the balmiest days, opt for linen which will ensure that you feel every bit as cool as you look.

COVETABLE CONTRAST

When wearing suiting and shirts experiment with colour to give rise to looks which are anything but ordinary.

DOUBLE UP

Stand out at a social gathering by opting for a double breasted blazer. It's a traditional yet on-trend choice.

GO INTO DETAIL

Think not just of the bigger picture, subtle accessories and micro patterns can make unexpectedly excellent pairings.

IN BLACK AND WHITE

Reconsider the way you wear monochrome for occasions. On top pair shades of cream and white, but ground the look with black.
