BURTON MENSWEAR AW18

BURTON MENSWEAR AW18

 

It’s that time of year guys, when the temperature drops and we need to invest in some warmer clothing. I have picked out 4 different outfits from Burton for the AW season which I love and I think you guys will too.

My first look is all about layering up but I wanted to still keep this outfit smart-casual. The knitted camel crew neck sweater stood out to me straight away, the colour is great and is the main focal point of the outfit. The white shirt is a must in every mans wardrobe. It goes with everything and it makes the outfit a little smarter. If you know me, then you know how much I love the colour black, so the skinny jeans, boots and Jacket was an easy choice. I opted for black leather Chelsea boots because not only do they look smart, they are great for the colder days. I have always been a fan of bomber jackets and this one looks great with a curved hem detail and double zip.

My second layered outfit is more of a casual, everyday look. The grey tapered fit side striped jersey trousers have become one of my favourites. Stripes are everywhere this season and it gives the trousers a little more detail. White trainers with a plain crew neck T-shirt always looks good with these type of trousers (and of course the ankles have to be out ha!). The slim fit blazer is such a snug fit and very comfortable so you feel very relaxed when wearing this. The hoody just brings it all together, giving the outfit more of an edgy look.

We all need to invest in a few coats this time of year so here is my first outwear look. Again I am wearing the skinny black jeans with the black leather chelsea boots. This time I have added a roll neck and styled it with a camel overcoat. Roll necks are always in during the AW season and can make any outfit look smart. The camel faux wool chesterfield overcoat is a must have and the black roll neck goes so well with this coat. If you follow fashion like me you will see the camel overcoat everywhere on Instagram. It is definitely a key piece for the wardrobe.

My second outwear look is again wearing another chesterfield overcoat but this time in black (what other colour of course!). I had to have the coat in both colours. The black version can look very smart for work but also goes well in a more casual style. I am wearing the black skinny jeans again but this time I have changed the boots. They are still black leather boots but more of a military style boot. Then to layer up I have added the white crew neck T-shirt with the salt and pepper textured crew neck jumper. The jumper is great and gives the outfit a splash of colour. I also have a plain black scarf to keep the neck warm on those chilly days.

STYLE GUIDE FOR THE RACES

STYLE GUIDE FOR THE RACES

Hi guys, so todays blog post is all about my style guide for the races. All of us gents secretly enjoy making that extra bit of effort to look sharp. At the races we all get our best suits on and head down to enjoy a fun day with our friends/family.

5-2

There is one special event I want to talk about Mr Green Ladies & Gents evening at Chester Races on 13th July.  They host a ”Best Dressed” contest and I want to help inspire you to look your best and maximise your chances of winning the contest.

For me personally, if I am heading to the races I would probably go all out and choose a 3 piece suit. I think the waistcoat always brings that extra bit of class. This was one of my favourite looks that could be ideal for the races. I picked up this suit from Burton for less than £150. You could also add a pocket square to complete the look.

As we are finally getting a decent summer in the UK (!!) why not consider going for a suit in a lighter colour such as a beige or light pink. I really love this suit from Reiss. 

This suit has a real summer vibe and will definitely help you stand out. If you think the full suit is too much then why not swap the trousers for some  dark chinos. Complete the look with some loafers.

This light pink suit from Asos will definitely make you stand out for all the right reasons and is perfect in this weather. I always prefer skinny/slim fit suits, for me they just fit better.

Let me know what you guys think of these looks. Feel free to ask me any questions!

BURTON SUMMER RANGE

BURTON SUMMER RANGE

Holiday season is upon us and with the temperature rising in the UK it is time to invest in some new summer pieces for your wardrobe.

I am going to show you a few of my favourite summer pieces I picked out from Burton.

SHIRTS

I have always been a fan of short sleeve shirts especially in the summer. For me I like to show off my tattoos but it also keeps you cooler on these hot days. My first choice is the Monochrome leaf print shirt. Everyman needs a printed shirt in his wardrobe this summer. They are really on trend at the moment and wether your on holiday or at a festival these always look really good.

My second choice was something a little smarter. I chose the short sleeve light denim wash shirt. Most men own a denim shirt and they will always be in fashion so you can’t go wrong! You can wear this shirt in more of a casual style with short chinos like i have styled below or it’s also nice to wear on a evening to dinner or drinks. This denim shirt goes really well with beige chinos.

SWIMWEAR 

This time of year most people have a holiday booked up. We all like to be sitting in the sun, by the pool or at the beach so you need to invest in some swim shorts. Floral is very on trend this summer so why not add a little colour to your wardrobe and get these shorts.

 

SUITS

Burton is know for producing really nice suits. For the summer season they have released a few really nice colours for all occasions. You can style suits in different ways but for me personally I have been loving the smart-casual look. As you can see in my picture, just by wearing trainers and and a plain T shirt you can pull off the casual style. I picked out the Raspberry Slim Fit suit admittedly I was a bit nervous when i picked out this colour but since wearing it I have had a lot of compliments. The slim fit is perfect and gives it that tailored feel. Burton have suits for all occasions so if you have a wedding coming up or going to the horse racing then check out their collection.

Square Four Watch Box

I have always been a fan of watches and seem to be starting a nice little collection. For me there is a timepiece for every occasion, I like to match the colours and styles with my outfits. I have always been a fan of accessories so it would be very rare to see me without a watch on.

My shelf started to look very messy with my watches laying around everywhere. It also took up too much room keeping all the separate watch boxes out. I do travel a lot as well and I like to have a selection of watches with me and obviously I don’t want them to get damaged so need something to put them in for safe keeping.

I came across the Aspinal square four watch box in one of their stores and it immediately caught my eye. The box is so stylish, on the outside you have the deep shine amazon croc print Italian calf leather and on the inside its lavish soft suede. The four suede cushions can accommodate all styles of watches. For security it also comes with a really nice solid brass lock and key.

If you are paying a lot of money for a watch and have a collection why not invest in some where to store them and make them look very presentable. You can purchase this square four watch box for £315 just click the link below. They also do a single travel watch roll and a five watch box.

CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE

CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE

Christmas is my favourite time of year – everyone is in a happy mood, what is not to love?! We get to spend time with family & friends, the decorations, the parties, eating so much food and of course the presents! We all like to get something we want for Christmas but for me seeing someones face light up when they are opening a gift you got them is priceless.

If you’re anything like me and haven’t finished your Christmas shopping yet here is my Christmas gift guide.

ASPINAL OF LONDON 

If you’re looking to treat yourself or a loved one to a little luxury this Christmas then head over to Aspinal Of London. Everything about this brand oozes class. I already own the black Boston bag, passport cover, ID wallet & iPhone 7 leather case. The quality of their products are exceptional and all hand crafted.

At Aspinal there is a gift for everyone, whether you want to treat your wife to a nice handbag or your brother to a wallet you are guaranteed to find something. The packaging is incredible and everything is gift wrapped to perfection. I would suggest going to into one of their amazing stores, they have recently opened a new store in Regent street which is absoloutley stunning. You can also get complimentary personalisation on all products which is a really nice touch and makes that gift extra special!

 

You can shop the products online here.

AMERICAN CREW 

Looking for a stocking filler? Then check out American Crew, they have some great gift sets in which are perfect for Christmas. Most men’s barbers stock American Crew so you know that their products will be top quality.

I use a few of their products when styling my hair, my personal favourite is the Fiber which gives you a more natural look without a shiny finish. A little goes a long way with this product and it lasts for a while. American Crew have a great range of products and cater for all skin and hair types.

Christmas wouldn’t be the same without a good gift set!

BOOHOO MAN

The Biker Jacket will never go out of fashion and BoohooMAN do some really nice styles at such reasonable prices so you don’t need to break the bank. I wear my biker jackets on a regular basis and I can tell you if I got this jacket as a gift for Christmas I would be really happy. This would make the perfect gift for your partner or brother. I have a lot of BoohooMAN clothes and the fit and quality is great. Don’t forget to check out my latest post wearing this BoohooMAN jacket on my Instagram @finnerz.uk.

ZARA 

A camel coat is definitely one of my staple wardrobe items this season. If you go on Instagram they are everywhere! My coat featured in the images above is from Zara and I actually got it for Christmas a few years ago from my mum (she has good style ha!) and it’s still in great condition so that tells you the quality is really good. The coat comes in a nice gift box so it is easy to wrap too. The Zara coats vary but are usually priced around £100.

If you are looking for a cheaper alternative then check out New look or ASOS where you can find one for around £60.

PAUL HEWITT

Mens accessories can bring an outfit together. I feel lost if I leave the house without wearing one of my watches. I have one for most occasions but can honestly say that my Paul Hewitt watch is definitely one of my favourites. I feel like a watch is a good investment and most guys will get good use of out of their watch wearing them daily.

If you are looking for a main gift then check the Paul Hewitt range out.  The packaging is smart and I am sure your partner or loved one would love one of these watches.  FYI gents they also do beaut women watches. If you go online now they are doing £10 off, see my choice below.

JO MALONE 

Jo Malone offer a huge range of candles and colognes as well as body lotions. The whole range is unisex and all of the scents are great.  There are some really cool limited edition gifts just for Christmas too.

My fiancée loves their products and is forever bringing home something new. I cannot complain though as she keeps the house smelling really nice. I recently tried their award-winning exfoliating shower gel and not only does it smell amazing but the fragrance lasts all day.

The Jo Malone products are also beautifully gift wrapped – making it easier for us guys! The candles / diffusers would make a lovely Christmas gift for someone who might have just moved into a new home or loves luxury fragrance.

You can find their products in John Lewis or visit one of their stores.

HOW TO PULL OFF THE SMART CASUAL LOOK

HOW TO PULL OFF THE SMART CASUAL LOOK

DEBENHAMS MENSWEAR

What does smart casual mean to you? It is hard to find the right balance – is it too smart? is it too casual? I have asked myself the same questions many times. Now the festive season is upon us we all have Christmas parties or drinks with friends planned which means we need a new outfit, right? I have teamed up with Debenhams to show you my smart casual look edit.

In my opinion you can wear any type of trouser when trying to pull off this look but I believe jeans work best. My choice of denim is dark blue slim fit or skinny fit.

A blazer makes the outfit and really pulls the whole look together. It is the perfect staple that everyman should have in their wardrobe as you can pair it up with different pieces. When adding formal pieces to my outfit the blazer is definitely my go to item, it helps create an effortless look. I chose the Grey textured weave blazer from Debenhams –  It is from the exclusive J by Jasper Conran range, crafted from a rich wool blend. Not only is the quality great but the fit is also perfect! I am wearing a size 40R, it is also available in big and tall sizes. Retails at £135.

SHOP THE BLAZER HERE

 

I’ve kept it simple with a navy crew neck t-shirt, not only is it reasonable in price but it gives you that more casual style if you wanted it to take you from day to night. You can’t go wrong with a sleek simple t-shirt. I am wearing the J by Jasper Conran – Navy supima cotton crew neck t-shirt in a size medium. Retails at £15.

SHOP THE T-SHIRT HERE

For footwear you can wear trainers but I prefer to wear a nice pair of shoes. You can then go straight from the boardroom to the bar. My choice of shoe to compliment this outfit are the Red Herring – Tan leather loafers. Loafers are one of my favourite type of shoe they are very versatile and go well with both jeans and chinos. They are made from genuine leather and come in an iconic loafer style with tasselled detailing. Retails at £52.

SHOP THE SHOES HERE

Accessories are essential for those who love detail. If you wanted to smarten the outfit up then you could add a nice pocket square or even a tie. I picked out this Hammond & Co by Patrick Grant – Wine red geometric print scarf to give the outfit some colour and it goes really well with the textured weaved blazer. Retails at £25.

A lot of people usually see me in a more casual or street style look but I do actually really like dressing smart for certain occasions. This look is more of a office/ business look. The suit is from NEXT and this blog post is on my Aspinal Of London bag.
