DRESSING FOR THE OFFICE: DOS AND DON’TS

01.02.16

Ever heard that advice that you should dress for the job that you want, not the job that you have? Oh, if only things were that simple. On first reading this guidance makes some sense, but with a little more thought the sentiment soon begins to unravel.

What does dressing for the job you want entail? Wearing the most uptight suit you can muster? Aping Mark Zuckerberg by adopting a uniform of a T-shirt, jeans and trainers? The truth is there are a whole variety of ways to get it right and to get it wrong.

From mastering casual Fridays to perfecting your accessorising, follow our tips for avoiding a dreaded workplace fashion faux pas.

LONDON COLLECTIONS: MEN – 7 THINGS THAT WE LEARNED

14.01.16

It’s often said that a lot can happen in a week, and it’s never been truer than at this week’s London Collections: Men. The great and the good of the menswear world gathered at various locations across the capital to greedily eye up all that AW16 had to offer.

There were a few stubbornly persistent designs (exposed necks in winter are increasingly looking to be a thing of the past) while others took unlikely sources as inspiration (teddy bear fur is no longer just a suitable covering for soft toys, but for grown men too).

So, what does this all mean for modern menswear? We’ve put together a list of the most important takeaways from the showcase. Planning next winter’s wardrobe starts here.

5 STYLE RESOLUTIONS FOR THE NEW YEAR

02.01.16

As if alerted to the error of our ways by one overindulgence too many, December’s last days go hand in hand with a determination to leave all of our personal failings – however small – firmly behind.

That means exercise equipment is dusted off, calories are given the cold shoulder and chain watching the latest blockbuster TV series is no longer a viable way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

While fitness, diet and productivity are consistently high up on ‘must improve’ lists, less thought is given to shaping up our wardrobes.

We’ve compiled a list of 5 style resolutions that all men who want to look their best should stick to in 2016. They may not all be big changes, but they’re certainly all clever and require much less willpower than policing life’s pleasures.

GREAT ESCAPES: WHERE TO GO FOR WINTER SUN

20.12.15

It’s natural, when skies darken and temperatures plummet, the entirely rational response is to think of escaping to somewhere a little closer to the equator.

Though the forecasts for the foreseeable future may not be anything to get excited about, Christmas and all of its rituals go a long way to alleviate the gloom of short, dark and dreary days. When the festive season draws to its close, there is little to feel enthusiastic about until spring’s first days have sprung.

You don’t have to accept your lot though. From a European location with a more favourable thermometer reading to the places that spend all year long basking in heat, a winter sun getaway doesn’t have to just be a flight of fancy, it can be a lifeline during an endlessly long winter.

Just pick a place and brace yourself a return to summer.

6 MEN WHO’VE MASTERED WINTER STYLE

24.11.15

Are you frantically racking your brain wondering how best to stave off the cold while looking stylish? Well, you’re not alone. For most men, winter routinely brings with it a whole new set of challenges absent from the milder months.

These sartorial woes chiefly concern layering. In theory it sounds great; pile on all of your favourite pieces, keep warm and send your cost-per-wear calculations plummeting. The reality though, is far from straightforward with colours, texture and shape all loudly tussling with each other. Then there are the matters of dressing for winter’s social events and accessorising correctly.

Here are six men (three from the past, three from the present)  who you can take inspiration from now.

Camel’s back. It really is as simple as that. Once the sole preserve of the camel coat, for this season the colour (which ranges anywhere from light sand to caramel brown) has hotfooted it from outerwear to appear on accessories, knitwear and even tailoring. Good news then, for enthusiasts of this timelessly appealing shade.

Here, we show you the most stylish ways that camel can be worn.
