The simplest of outfits often require the most attention to detail, the black suit is a classic example of this and one that many men struggle with. This is a very basic but powerful outfit, when the fit is right, and one that can be used in a variety of social settings including business meetings, dinner dates, nights out with friends and stylish days out.
This outfit was one requested several times by multiple readers, a few weeks back, asking what a gent would wear to a festival or outdoor gig. The main focus was to incorporate tailoring into a smartened festival theme, not necessarily for Glastonbury but maybe for an all-day concert in the park.
Today’s outfit is inspired by the Mediterranean tailoring often seen on the Italian Riviera in the summer sun. Using crisp colours contrasts and slim cut tailoring, the result is an outfit that not only looks sharp in the daytime but is flexible enough to be appropriate for many occasions. View Post
This outfit is all about the simple use of a plain white shirt, tailored blazer and slim black chinos. The addition of the dark tie adds contrast which helps draw the eye up the outfit, with a tie clip to sharpen the style. By using darker colours below the waist the overall effect is that the individual looks taller and trims the overall figure. The outfit also incorporates a checked pocket square to add a dapper element to the piece. Finally, the outfit is finished with black leather chelsea boots to compliment the overall look and of the ensemble. View Post
