STYLE & ÉTIQUETTE ADVICE
Your most frequent style & étiquette questions are answered.
Your occupation and lifestyle will inform the detail of your wardrobe but these essentials are a strong foundation on which to build, to see you through every occasion.
A dark, well tailored Suit
Ideally custom made or professionally fitted. Dark grey or navy are the most versatile. Black can look too formal for some occasions. A well-made suit is a must so ensure you have a range to suit all of your professional and leisure needs.
An unstructured Suit or Separates
This can be a navy blazer and grey wool pants or a relaxed suit that you can mix and match. A suit jacket or blazer can dress up a more casual outfit for less formal occasions.
Blue Jeans and Khakis
Find a store with helpful attendants and make sure you get the right cut for your body shape and leg length. Replace these once they start to get worn and use the older pairs for handyman or gardening work on weekends.
Invest in a good quality overcoat for work in winter and a 3/4 length trench or pea coat for weekends and leisure time.
A White Dress Shirt
This classic shirt is essential for your formal occasions. See the white shirt Collection by Edward Stripe for a selection.
A Versatile Necktie
Solid colour or classic diagonal stripe will see you through any occasion. There is a variety to choose from in the Edward Stripe Collection of neckties.
A Casual or Button-down Shirt
For parties, brunches, dinners and family events. The classic white polo is a safe, stylish and versatile option. See the Edward Stripe range of men’s casual shirts.
