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!

Maniere De Voir 

Such a privilege to collaborate with this brand. This weeks look focuses on the suede stone biker jacket.

First time I have ever worn Maniere De Voir and they didn’t let me down. The quality is amazing. This suede jacket not only feels well made but looks like a really expensive jacket. I’ve only had this jacket a week now and everyone keeps asking me where I got this from. I am a huge Jacket fan anyway so this is my number 1 right now. 

I’m also wearing their their extreme distressed black jeans. Again the quality is really good and the fit is perfect. Being 6ft 3 sometimes ordering jeans online can be a nightmare. I have waist 32 leg 32 and you can still crop them if needed which I do with most of mine anyway. I loved the rips on these jeans I am all about the distressed look when I comes to my jeans. I am also wearing one their jumpers which I will do another post in a few weeks.

Got2b hair products 

Every man is different when it comes to styling their hair whether it’s the wet look or dry look.

There is so much more men’s hair products around now and it’s hard to find the right one that suits your hair.

My hair is wavy which most people don’t realise. When going out I like to look my best with not a hair out of place. 

I use Got2b styling products to hold my curls. I use the bodyfying cream gel and the blasting freezing spray

My Routine

After I come out the shower I dry my hair and straighten it using the hair dryer. Once in place I then take a small handful of the bodyfying cream gel this gives the affect of thicker looking hair but only use a small amount. I then use the hairdryer and comb to push hair into place now the bodyfying cream gel is in. Once it’s in place I finish the hair off with the blasting freeze spray. Trust me when I say this your hair will not move even in the wind and when sweating. People always ask me how it stays in place after a workout or at football training. I swear by this hairspray.

You can find these products in Superdrug and all the supermarkets so it’s easy to find. They also do mini versions if you travel to.

Peggy Porschen Cakes

Looking for the perfect little cake shop for a quick snack and ice tea then this is the place to be. On a nice sunny day sitting outside is perfect while eating your cake and watching the world go buy.

I must admit I didn’t go here out of choice it was the fiancées choice (obviously). Peggy Porschen is located in London on Ebury street. We had mixed berry ice tea which was so refreshing. We also went for the eton mess cupcake with victoria sponge cake both freshly made.

My fiancee has definitely changed my mind on stopping for tea and cake.

Summer look..

Here in the UK we are having some redicoulous weather. We have had some days reaching 30 degrees and above. This means we can wear light and bright colours.

White jeans are big this year those of you who watch love island will know all the guys wear them on a daily basis. My ripped jeans in the picture are from boohoo at a bargain price £20. Boohoo are always doing discounts so keep your eyes peeled. 50% off for men is a monthly thing for boohoo.

White jeans look really nice when the suns out and will go with most T shirts. Keeping the summer theme im wearing the classic CK grey T shirt. When wearing grey with white this gives off a really bright summer look with the sun reflecting off both colours.

One thing I would say about wearing grey T shirts which I’m sure most guys are aware of is sweat marks! It’s the one Colour that reveals all.

Trendee Tees and hoodies 

This is a US brand and I’m glad they got in touch with me as I’m always looking for something different. 

A lot of brands try to come up with good slogan and Trendee T definitely did. I love the saying ‘HUMBLE’ as for me I always believe you should no matter where you are in your life.

You can never go wrong with black and white T shirts so these are the 2 I chose. They didn’t disappoint the fit was great and the good thing is being a US brand you won’t catch anyone else wearing this in the UK. We all want to be different and unique.
