Larger quantites? Please ask about our deals on six or more pieces.
Don't let this deceive though; this range looks just at home on one person as much many!
A real all rounder we find here.
The Dawlish suit from Brook Taverner can be worn very successfully at a Wedding, open- necked casually or for business. You don't have to choose dark colours for versatility any more; sharkskin grey is a clever choice. It fits well straight off, but wearing the jacket (perhaps even more body-tapered by your local tailor for about £20) with jeans and you have a perennial two piece.
Be quick- this suit will not last long.
I've recently been asked about evening wear.
More precisely one question in particular. Yes, there are more important things in life to worry about, but that's not the point. Just knowing is enough.
It's this: When in the course of an evening event is it ok to undo your bow tie?
You may not like my verdict. You'll get over it, but its a view employed by the best dressed men in the world.
Think of the soldier sitting down for his evening meal with his contemporaries. The moment he sits, that's it. He can't loosen his tie, he can't 'ease off' his trousers as the meal he is eating takes refuge in his stomach. He is not even allowed to visit the lavatory during the seated part of the evening. Three or more courses. Drinks. Coffee. Room and body temperature changes. The clothing is required not to change in its appearance.
You must organise your body, intake and clothing accordingly. You can imagine the queue for the toilets after the meal! How does this relate to you?
If you want to gain the sartorial high ground, You must plan to walk out of the event as you walked in. No undone shirt with bow tie draping down from your neck. No untucked shirt or 'Travolta' swinging jacket above your head on the dance floor.
Plan ahead; choose a shirt you know will feel good with the top button fastened all evening. A pair of dinner trousers that are comfortable when sat and standing. A jacket you can sit correctly in to eat and drink. A suit you won't feel like taking off. A tie which needs little or no attention.
A final piece of related advice: don't drink too much. Uncontrolled behaviour is not an attractive accessory.
Perish the thought.
When it comes to style, there are certain things that don't date.
I am a huge fan of a well thought out smart Summer look which reflects your surroundings.
Cue the linen suit with slip ons, no socks.
True, you have to be careful to avoid that 'I've just taken my socks off, that'll do' look. But you'll find that the gently creased, lazy attitude of a linen jacket, either with well- cut jeans or matching trousers should do the trick.
Brook Taverner'Jeremy' Linen Suit. £254.00
Finish off with a patterned shirt without a tie, or perhaps linen again left untucked.
Make the decision and stick to it though, as you can't tuck a shirt in and then untuck it later!
This all serves to make you look sartorially acceptable, but not too formal.
A little tip: sprinkle some talcum powder in the shoes and between your toes! This feels especially nice in leather - lined shoes.
Olymp Luxor patterned shirt. £35.49
Loake Skipton Ginger suede slip-ons, contrast cream stitch. £95. Available form LSC
Personal style nowadays has become very important, whether we like it or not.
So many judgments, fair and unfair, are made at lightning speed not only in personal life but also in business. It almost goes without saying these assumptions and conclusions get directed completely unfairly at their target, and of course without their knowledge. Half or more of the fun I suspect.
Yet as unpalatable as this thinking is, it is part of life.
To the more hard headed unwitting recipient of such 'judgements', such remarks make little difference and would serve only to antagonize. However if felt or even overheard by sensitive ones, even the most 'off the cuff' comments can at best play on the mind, at worst cause deep hurt to the ego.
This coupled with what one thinks one should wear, for example images in the media, and you have a recipe for a jaundiced sense of personal style.
In future blogs my humble suggestions shall aim to bring to the surface the reader's, not my, sense of style. I will not be asking anyone to be Icarus with their clothes, no death dealing risks here. To have an open mind towards change is far more important. Again, though, not change for change's sake. Perhaps gradual improvement if the reader feels it necessary.
But remember: unless you're a presenter on Top Gear, your own sense of style is usually a good guide.
It happens to almost everyone. One morning you wake up, you feel that you have to express yourself, either for a job interview or a date, something important.
You want to get the right clothes, and to feel right for the occasion. Even if you are not a compulsive buyer, you know doing some shopping is going to help you achieve this.
Now you are going shopping. You have your preferred places, where you find most of your outfits. When shopping with your partner, who always find that something special that makes you feel unique, apart from the crowd.
