You know that feeling when we have a run of 4 dry days over 10 degrees in April and you get a bit excited and leave the house in chinos and a short sleeved shirt? Then come 6pm when you should be enjoying a pint after work in a beer garden you’re sat there shivering?
Well, we’ve got the ideal antidote. A mac is good for all seasons, lightweight enough for the warmest spring days, it’s showerproof for the unpredictable British weather and, well, it just looks damn stylish.
Take a leaf out of the style file from the well dressed guys above and invest in a Trench Coat. We guarantee you’ll look good all year round.
We recently hit the streets in search of some of the most stylish men around. We quickly noticed a lot of you fine gents were pulling off a navy suit with style.
Navy is perhaps the most versatile suit colour you can invest in. It will team up nicely with most shirt and tie combos that you have already in your wardrobe. A navy suit is both businesslike and good for special occasions like weddings or formal dinners too.
If you’re missing a classic, slim fitting navy suit from your inventory, might we recommend one for you? This suit will serve you well.
Distressed denim is nothing new, however we’ve just introduced our latest twist on a classic technique. Our washed effect black denim give you that worn in and well loved look right off the peg, only they’ve had the washed effect applied in all the right places so whilst they’ll look naturally worn, they’re anything but scruffy. See for yourself the difference in the aesthetic between our washed effect black jeans and those old kegs you keep in the back of your wardrobe – they’re miles apart!
We turned our eye to the streets to see how Britain’s most stylish are wearing the trend so pick up some pointers to set your look on the right tracks. If in doubt, we love these jeans styled smarter with Chelsea boots, a slim fitting shirt and a Harrington or mac, or take the casual route with some simple plimsolls a fresh white tee and a black bomber.
Monochrome is a prevailing menswear trend, it’s simple, stylish and suits everybody. You can go smarter with a blazer or keep it casual with a bold, block print monochrome tee.
Here’s our pick of the crop from our street style archive so you can get an idea for how versatile and easy the look is to pull off in a way that really suits your style.
Jack’s look is simple, clean and works really well for the transitition from summer to autumn.
We love a monochrome printed shirt. It adds a seasonal twist and looks pretty smart under a black mac too.
This season we’re certainly going to be championing this look, the fresh white tee with rugged biker jacket and grayscale jeans is a winner.
Monochrome can be smart-casual. The white tee is your monochrome staple and adding a black blazer looks edgy without being OTT.
Keep it cool and casual by going monochrome right down to your snapback, sneakers and bag! This look will see you through till the new year and will become a wardrobe staple, and there’s that trusy white t-shirt again, trust us it’s an essential!
If you can’t be without a pop of your favourite colour added into the mix then keep it to a small detail like your trainers or a bag. It is kind of cheating, but we won’t tell because it still looks so darn good!
2013 was THE year of #BurtonStreetStyle. We spent a fair amount of time chasing stylish blokes through busy city centres and persuading them to have their awesome outfits snapped by our ace photographer Vicki!
We’ve papped everyone from TV presenters and magazine editors to bloggers, brickies and students! Here are the top street style looks of 2013:
Suited and Booted
We’ve always got our eyes peeled for a smart and snappy formal look and these guys all nailed this year’s biggest suiting trend, the blue suit.
On the streets we noticed a pattern emerging. You well dressed blokes love to don a blazer. We love the versatility of these looks, from smart to casual and playful, these guys showed us that a blazer doesn’t have to look boring and can be worn outside of the office!
As well as plenty of pairs of great quality and well fitting jeans, we also spotted a huge trend for denim jackets. These guys look awesome in theirs and 3 very different looks too! We can see this trend continuing well into 2014!
When it comes to down-time dressing all these guys got it bang on! All 6 of these looks would be perfect for the weekend, and trust us, it was hard to whittle it down to these 6!
