City Slicker

Monday, August 18th, 2014

Since the release of Wolf of Wall Street last year, the suited and booted city men have adopted the Jordan Belfort look and have taken a bit of ’80s style inspiration.

The streets of Bishopsgate and Bank have an added touch of Wall St glamour with city slickers pounding the pavements to and from work in some sharp tailoring. Long gone are the ill fitted suits, creased shirts and printed ties, with the working gentleman now taking a much more premium approach to his wardrobe.

Slim fit 3 piece suits, pocket squares and matching ties are the everyday norm, kept sleek and sophisticated with the slim Sean Chelsea Boot or slipper loafers like the Artistry and Aristocrat.

Pale, feminine colours that were popular in the ’80s, such as powder pink, baby blue and yellow are back in the form of contrast ties, pocket squares, socks and shirts.

When the days are a bit warmer or it gets a little heated in meeting, a pair of braces against a white shirt is the perfect boardroom attire. Keep it New York inspired with the Appraisal American Brogue and a double breasted navy suit.

His & Hers Style

Monday, August 4th, 2014

Lately it would appear that the girls are borrowing from the boys a lot more and its not just grabbing his t-shirt or jumper every now and then, its taking style inspiration from his classic looks.

Traditionally men’s formal favourites consist of brogues, loafers and Chelsea boots and now the girls are getting in on the action and looking great doing it!

A classic retro brogue like the men’s Frankie or women’s Temperley looks great with a pair of dark indigo skinny jeans and a collarless granddad shirt, a simple outfit that suits both sexes.

The Mod favourite Chelsea boot is a firm favourite with the likes of Harry Styles and Alexa Chung and is pretty easy to wear in both summer and winter. Girls can rock  the Coolcat Chelsea with a pair of cut off shorts and loose vest or smarten up in a ’60s style shift dress. Men often wear a Chelsea boot like the Sean with a suit in the colder months as its simple and smart but paired with some slim fit black jeans and a simple white t-shirt they can channel their inner Mick Jagger.

The new men’s formal fave is the monk buckle like the hi shine Giovanni that is a sleek alternative to a lace up to match with suits for the office and the odd wedding. Girls can utilise this style a bit more as it looks good with most outfits. The Verity is quite a chunky option and fuses a bit of ’60s and ’90s in its silhouette.

A gentlemans casual classic is the driver like the Sydney, a timeless style that never looks out of place on the streets of Monaco and St Tropez. Men can use this style to smarten up some jeans and a shirt without pushing the boat out and girls can wear with dresses, ripped boyfriend jeans or summer shorts.
