A wise man’s wardrobe is built on cornerstones: the T-shirt for the beach (or the bar), a pair of Derbies for work (or a wedding) and the blazer for, well, pretty much everything.
Despite menswear’s gradual drift from dandy to dressed-down, there remain those sartorial classics that never seem to lose their clout. The blazer is one such stalwart: it’s the piece you reach for when getting dressed to boss that job interview, for wooing the one that could be ‘the one’, or for any of life’s situations where it pays to look that little bit sharper.
But styling one isn’t always easy. Indeed, too many men spend valuable time trying to pair a blazer and trousers – time they could be using to do more important things like, you know, sorting their bed hair out. Or drinking (depending on the time of day we’re talking…)
So this time around we decided to put together an ensemble demonstrating an ideal pairing of an informal blazer to achieve an impeccable look.
Here I’m wearing a steel grey wool linen blazer with a contrast panel from ‘SS HOMME Bespoke’ along with skinny white chinos teamed up with a classic black shirt and tan derbys.
The grey blazer from SS HOMME is the absolute highlight of this attire. The bold contrast panel gives so much character to the look creating an illusion of width. Perfect for a late evening date or a soiree.
Walk in wearing these and you will surely turn eyeballs.
Here are some pictures from the shoot. Hope you like them.
