A well-dressed man commands great power and style, but it’s not as easy as simply putting on a suit. Here are five easy tips to help you dress like a dapper gentleman.
// Accessorise your favourite suit with a bit of personality. Add some bright pops of colour with a handmade pocket square, one in each colour to match all your favourite shirts. Don’t forget to select a tie bar and/or lapel pin to really show of your style. Pins are a huge business right now, so select the right one to give a hint to the man inside the suit.
// Invest in a piece of Harris Tweed. Hand woven in the Outer Hebrides, there’s nothing more suave than a jacket or waistcoat made from this fine Scottish cloth. A Harris Tweed jacket will last you a lifetime, so much so that you can easily pick one up from a vintage shop at a fraction of the price that is still in fabulous condition. Perfect to dress like a dapper gentleman on a budget.
// Look after your feet with a pair of good quality brogues. Our friends at Loake Shoemakers have created a fabulous range of brogue shoes and boots for all occasions and they’re even available in a variety of different fits, from narrow to extra wide. Even better, we have all the tools and goodies to help care for your shoes too.
// Always match your belt to your shoes and if it doubt, choose a brown hue. A tan brogue suits a navy suit more than a black shoe ever could. It’s a more sophisticated and stylish look and black can easily look cheap if you have to sacrifice quality for price.
// No dapper gentleman is complete without a fancy shoehorn displayed on your nightstand. Choose from wood, chrome, copper or horn depending on your style and slide on your boot of choice with ease. You could even get a mini one to keep in your briefcase or bag.
