Perfecting the Classic Look
We've all been there. The girlfriend drags us around the shops by the ear as we're due to attend a party at the weekend. After spending an hour in each shop, touching every single piece of clothing in turn, exhaling as if hinting for an opinion, nothing often comes out of it but the feeling of helplessness, the sour taste of overpriced cufflinks and a tie that doesn't quite hit the spot for £3.99. As always the necktie comes complete with frayed ends that appear to have been chewed by a lost child desperately hungry for the Happy Meal that papa had promised him as a bribe for behaving himself.
I don't know if you've noticed but there's a gaping hole in the highstreet for affordable and stylish suit accessories. Why? I don't know but you don't need to worry, we're here and we've got you covered.
It's usually a case of buying a new full suit once your waistline peaks, you've worn the same one 17 times or it's gathered so much dust, it needs an expert team of hazardous materials specialists to restore it to its original condition.
Don't worry, by the end of this guide, you'll be able to build a designer look for a snip of the price and be head to toe in style...
There's no debate. Neckties are still the stand-out, men's accessory! Simplicity is the key to creating a seamless, sophisticated look and these essentials give you a choice of bold colours. We'd recommend matching the red wine tie with darker blue or black jackets and the Navy colours sit nicely on black and charcoal tones.
I know what you're thinking, we're in the midst of hayfever season and you don't want to have to carry around a pack of tissues treated with aloe vera balm, blessed by the monks of Mount Etna in your back pocket. Instead, you could match a hanky to your suit and be the most stylish guy in the room?
Take your look to the next level with a white pocket square or match your sports jacket to this tidy white and navy polka dot number.
There's only two ways to play this game, simple and straightforward or playful and quirky. I lean towards the latter myself but I can't help it, I was born this way.
The main point is that your cufflinks match your personality and the look you're going for. These simple curved stainless steel cufflinks are the perfect finishing touch to your cuff, while the Formula 1 variety add personality for the F1 fan, sparking conversation about the great Ayrton Senna with like minded guests.
We all know what happens if you don't wear a belt, your suit looks like a half effort and you're at risk of showing the world your lucky dinosaur boxers. Belts are an essential suit accessory that can't be overlooked.
It's important to get the colours working together, so for that we've got old trusty, our black and chrome belt, which will match with most colour palettes. If you're feeling a little more slick and have shoes to match, a brown twist buckle belt will take your look up a serious notch.
So you're stood at the bar. Your girlfriend looks incredible so you've decided to splash out on a single spiced rum and a dash of coke as a reward. You slide your wallet out from your pocket, catching the bartender's eye. He nods, you nod in return. He knows you mean business because your wallet matches your belt and shoes and you're easily the most stylish guy in the room, because of the detail.
After handing over your hard earned, you walk away knowing you've made a statement with your Pickapocket carbon tri-fold wallet. For those times when you're heading to Lanzarote with the lads the Traveller wallet even has space to hold your passport.
You can't fit the world in your wallet especially not when it's packed to the brim with Winstons. Those are fivers for anyone who hasn't been to Peckham recently, so you might need something a little larger to stash your brush, tweezers and tablet too. The PU Clutch and briefcase bag are the hottest accessories to balance style with practicality and keep you looking the part.
So that's a full set of high quality accessories, to give you a designer look for the bargain price for £150.
