GUY’S GUIDE TO WINTER STYLE


Versatile and practical pieces that can be dressed up or down form the foundation of any dapper man’s wardrobe, and work equally well for most occasions. 


Solid neutral colours make for easy outfit updates and are interchangeable with any outfit. 

WHITE BUTTON-DOWN OXFORD SHIRT 
A crisp white shirt is functional and will never go out of style. The button-down collar gives it a smart edge, making it perfect for the office while easily dressed down with a casual pair of denims.

Top tip: When trying on the shirt the shoulder seam should run along the top of your shoulder and not fall too far forward, and it should end at your shoulder bone. If goes past your shoulder bone then it's too long, too far above it and it's too short. Your sleeves should end just past your wrist. When your shirt is buttoned up you should be able to fit two fingers between your neck and the collar.


CHINOS
A pair of slim-fit navy chinos are everyone’s wardrobe staple. Dressed up, they can replace suit trousers for formal occasions, but they’re also ideal for your casual weekend ensemble.

Top tip: Always look for 100% cotton, and whichever cut you choose, make sure to avoid pleats.

SWEATER
Although understated, a quality sweater in a neutral or wintry shade will ensure your cool-weather outfit is always styled with intention. The variations are endless, from work- appropriate V-necks and casual crew necks to preppy cardigans and the stylish turtleneck.

Top tip: When searching for sweaters, it is important to get measurements done similar to how you would for a dress shirt. The sweater should hug your body but not restrict you in any way. It should look slightly fitted but never beat comfort. Lastly, keep in mind that many animal fabrics tend to shrink after being washed a couple of times.




OVERCOAT
This is a long-term investment, so it’s definitely worth taking some time to find one that fits you properly, is durable enough to last a good few winters and is versatile enough to go with a variety of outfits. A neutral colour such as tan, grey or navy will complement the widest range of outfits.

Top tip: When you buy an overcoat, make sure to wear a shirt and a sportscoat or suit jacket because the coat has to fit on top of it. If you see X-wrinkles when buttoning your overcoat, it is definitely too tight.
