Men’s fashion this spring is about recreating classic styles. Partly in response to the world economy, it’s important to consider versatility and the ability to co-ordinate across business and casual wear to maximise your wardrobe’s return on investment.

Edward Stripe Collection Mens Dress Shirts and fine Silk Neckties
A distinct nautical theme is apparent across many designer ranges with classic striped, checked and textured business shirts in traditional blues and browns plus softer pinks, lilacs and yellows. All team perfectly with classic silk ties, cufflinks and fine woollen suits for business wear. Remove the tie and wear with chinos in various colours for smart casual. Invest in a pair or two of well kept dark denim jeans. And for hotter months include some wide neck tees with medium length shorts.

Footwear should be comfortable. Invest in one or two pairs of quality black or tan leather shoes in classic designs, including brogues. Wear them with matching belts and dark coloured socks and they’ll take you anywhere. Of course deck shoes are still very much in vogue for warmer months worn with rolled up chinos, but definitely no socks.

For afternoons and evening partying, you’ll stay on trend in fine floral and paisley prints as we are seeing a revival of retro 50’s and 60’s styles, as well as more dressed up preppy styles, plus denim on denim styles.

For your final touch, check your mirror, as almost anything goes for well styled and maintained hair. You’ll see retro mod, teddy boy styles and quiffs, plus longer shaggy styles (but no mullets), all with optional short clipped stubble beards.
