Summer tailoring has always been something of a problem for me. Often it takes bold use of colour, accessories and clever detailing to create an outfit that looks effortlessly dapper and suitable for the summer season. Fortunately, with the help of Hawes & Curtis, I had the opportunity to create three different tailored looks for summer that only use one suit but incorporate different elements and accessories for different styles. You can see them below and leave a comment with your feedback on the outfits.

A little while back I was asked by Topman to come into their beautiful Oxford Street store and style some of their AW15 collection as part of their new “This Is Denim” campaign to promote their latest collections. It was a good opportunity for me to try and create a new style from a brand that I don’t regularly shop with and, as their tagline says, it was the chance to “do something different”. Following on from the success of my last outfit post, I wanted to create another “Summer to Autumn/Winter” transitional look that can be worn and built on as the colder months begin to roll in.
As Summer draws to a close and the colder climate begins to take hold, it’s very easy for men to regress into bulky and unflattering clothing to make the Autumnal temperatures more bearable. However, comfort and warmth doesn’t necessitate the sacrifice of style. So I’ve put together an outfit that uses Autumn tailoring concepts yet maintains a lighter feel for the Summer/Autumn change.

Since starting The Male Stylist we’ve put together 10 different outfits, covering a variety of styles, cuts and occasions with each one defining a certain element of what we love. Ahead of a very special outfit post we’re putting together for next week we decided to review our top 3 outfits, as judged by their popularity with you.
3) Italian Styling for Summer
Undoubtedly one of our favourite lighter outfits for summer that is as simple as it is stylish. Inspired by the likes of Michael Fassbender, Jude Law and Daniel Craig. The combination of the simple white polo and light beige chinos gives an Italian Riviera feel to the whole ensemble. View Post
This outfit is as much about the statement as it is about style. The entire ensemble uses black to trim the figure and act as a stark contrast in lighter surroundings during summer. The use of a polo t-shirt helps sharpen the piece when compared to the standard t-shirt and jeans combination. The slimmer-fit of the black jeans helps the torso look broader whilst at the same time adding a slightly classic look to the outfit. Finally the piece is finished with a pair of simple side-laced black shoes and a black belt with titanium buckle. View Post
