4 easy steps for dressing ‘Smart-Casual’

25th September 2016

Many men don’t know where to start with this. However when you’ve mastered the art of smart-casual, it’s an option for almost every occasion.

Here we’re showing you a few easy-to-wear pieces and simple style tips that will take you through the season in style.

Start with a Shirt

For smarter occasions, keep it tucked in, the buttons done up and the sleeves down. For casual, do the opposite. Unbuttoning one (or maybe two) buttons at the top of your shirt will give your whole look a more relaxed feel, and loosely roll up the sleeves.

We’ve used experts in tailoring to give each of our shirts a made to measure feel. Choose between a variety of patterns, colours, checks and prints in our much-loved classic and slim fits. Looking for a place to start? Our Hensley shirt ticks all the boxes. For something with added interest try the Coleridge shirt – it includes ‘dobby spots’ that lift it out of the ordinary.

Opt for tailored chinos

Chinos are a perfect partner for any of our shirts, and although they’re a smarter alternative to jeans (jeans exude a relaxed feeling) both can look smart or casual depending on how you wear your shirt. Our new chinos have been crafted from high quality cotton that includes a little stretch for a lot of comfort. We’ve also tweaked and tailored the fit for the new season.

Add a Blazer

Our Elstead blazer has been crafted from cotton, meaning it won’t restrict your movement – basically it’s easy to wear and looks great too. And if something more traditional is your thing, then maybe our Langworth blazer will be worth a try. Crafted to capture our heritage and with a unique printed lining, it’ll be a smart and stylish piece for the season ahead.

What Else?

Smart-casual dressing shouldn’t be complicated. We recommend adding desert boots (or even a waistcoat). But really, the choice is yours.
