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.

Mens AW14 Style – How to Wear

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

Lads, its time to start thinking new season as the colder weather is approaching faster than we think and it is a great excuse to have a bit of a wardrobe overhaul and dig out the layers and muted colours.

This season is all about the rugged gentleman, fusing tailoring with casual wear and adding oversized outerwear. Some of the recent grooming trends are sticking around with guys opting for short, back and sides and a bit more facial hair than usual, which will come in handy for the winter.

Rugged styles like the Amuse Lace and the Alpaca Apron have that old American workwear style and look great matched with deep indigo turn up jeans, heavy knits and if you are feeling adventurous, a touch of double denim.

A popular formal style this season is the monk shoe and this also transcends into casual with the Access Double Monk which has a touch of wingtip detailing. Navy suede will feature heavily this autumn and will match with grey tweeds, brown hues and denim.

For formal occasions or if you fancy changing it up a bit in the office, the Artistry tassle loafer is best paired with a 3 piece suit for the Jordan Belfort’s of the world or worn with some nice tailored trousers and shirt for an evening in a nice city bar.
