HOW TO WEAR THE POLO SEERSUCKER SPORT COAT FOR SUMMER | CHESTERTONS POLO IN THE PARK WEEKEND

RE-DISCOVERING MY LOVE FOR THE RALPH LAUREN CLASSIC SEERSUCKER BLAZER THIS SUMMER

A GENTLEMEN’S GUIDE TO POLO SEASON SPORTING ATTIRE: STYLE DRESS CODES 101

With the all important summer social events and invitations coming in all at once dress codes are crucial to make the right impression with the exception of Polo In The Park for a fun day divot stomping in between chukkas. Dressing to impress is a must where not only the elite polo players take centre stage but so does style.

Here’s my Essential Guide on Menswear Polo Style how best to incorporate vibrant pastel colours into your summer wardrobe during the English Sporting Social Calendar.

The polo is always fun day out people watching from the Celebrities to the Spectators to who’s wearing what this year and where to be scene at the After Parties such as the Mahiki Enclosure. From today’s event here are my observations of the movers and shakers of the elite polo crowd veterans take on style and what they wore.

It’s a known fact guys hate shopping, but in fact it’s quite the opposite when it comes to summer social event’s, even the debonair man needs to look his best. From experience I learn what suits best and give my recommendations for outfits and how to wear them by including these in your daily style edit.

“The Ralph Lauren Seersucker Blazer the Ultimate Classic Staple for Summer”

Why not take an optimistic approach to colour and pairing your outfit with a bold statement set of bright trousers and the contrast of colours from red, green and yellow which are available to purchase from the high street to designer labels. These are worth investing in especially if you’re looking at brightening up that essential summer wardrobe so you’ll be sure to blend right in with the Chelsea locals alike.

Fitted shirt styles from Ralph Lauren are always great because they come in a variety of classic styles in the white button down collared shirt to pastel shades and bold stripes in blue. Then finish off the look with a neutral seer sucker blazer to even out the contrast of shades. A Seer Sucker blazer is unlined, so designed to keep you cool during the hot summer months at event occasions.

STYLE TIP: Seersucker blazer is unlined, so designed to keep you cool during the hot summer months.

With the English social calendar upon us we focus our attention towards stylish sporting events from the Varsity Polo, Polo in the Park to the Gold Cup at Cowdray.

For this look at Polo In The Park, I decided to keep it neutral but relaxed and I felt I had to express a style identity of my own. With summer you can’t go wrong and what better way to do this is to keep it neutral with a classic Ralph Lauren Seersucker Blazer but still include a splash of colour as you find the contrast helps bring out the best of both shades.

Even by adding the slightest finishing touches to a look such as a colour coordinated pocket square to tailored jackets can overall emphasize the best features of the whole outfit’s attire.

Looking for the perfect summer shoes can depend on the softness, texture and comfort to make it easier to walk on the lawn and inside the marquee enclosures. A slip on suede loafer in tan or dark brown rather than leather shoes helps the foot breathe more freely during the spring summer season.

Finally, your accessories choice can either create a luxury feel of sophistication or faux pas which is all down to preferential discerning taste. You can’t go wrong with skinny belts either in brown is minimal. Less is more. One of my personal favourites is a preppy style collegiate belt in dark navy with diagonal red stripes which adds a bit of character.

Next up, let’s think about that final touch of elegance such as Accessories and the best luxury Watches on the market to consider would be ‘The Chronograph’ Wrist Watches for Men. So far these are my favourite picks and there are quite a few Brands out there I’m crushing over this season to match my Sporting Attire. Whatever takes your fancy, so take your pick from these on my wish list to covet now.

 
 

That’s it, you’re now ready to be fully kitted out for a Polo Match so let’s bring on the rest of summer it’s not over yet!

GETTING READY FOR GOODWOOD REVIVAL | MEN’S DRESS CODE

STYLED & FITTED IN TWEED BY DESIGNER ELOISE GREY

Goodwood Revival

#MyRevival

Who can forget the smell of engines with the roar of iconic race cars. Experience a thrilling three day festival celebrating the halcyon days of motor racing and vintage style

I remember my first ever visit to Goodwood Revival because it was so memorable. Also, it was an opportunity to take a nostalgic trip down memory lane and experience vintage clothing and costume from a bygone era at its finest.

Goodwood Revival

Revival fashion on the day tells the story of fashion throughout the revival era. You can re-live it all from the evolution of the hemline, how men’s iconic style changed from nineteen forty eight to nineteen sixty six and the sub culture phenomenon of the Teenager.

So excited I’m collaborating with Tweed Jacket Designer Eloise Gray for my fitting to get ready for Goodwood Revival today and really looked forward to attending this year’s event.

“Revival Fashion #GoodWoodStyle”

While I was here I got to have a bit of wonder to see what was going on from vintage clothing stalls, food pop-ups, street performance singing quartets to the Goodwood circuit track to check out the vintage classic cars.

The memorable highlights of the day were close racing, tight overtakes, roaring engines, screeching cross-plys, spitfires flying overhead to various vintage outfits and stores.

Who could forget the Revival Greats from the legendary cars highlights from Jaguar E-Types, Ferrari 250 GTOs to Lister Knobblys, Alfa Romeo 1600 Guilia GTAa and Shelby Daytona Coupes.

It was a spectacular day out and I got to wear an amazing tweed suit from talented UK Ethical Fashion Designer Eloise Grey on the day. Tweed is very much in style these days and the only thing I own is from Harris Tweed Made in Britain which is a classic statement piece. Also, works well when you pair it with other items in your closet like a trilby and nice brogues perhaps. I had the most stupendous weekend playing dress up, fashion shows and trying swing dancing was great fun with friends at Goodwood Revival. It was an opportunity to travel through style in time and make some new nostalgic memories. I’ll see you there next year!

ENGAGEMENT PARTIES THIS SPRING? GET CLUED UP ON DRESS CODES, STYLES AND ACCESSORIES

The perils of recently engaged party dress code – you are not alone in your dilemma.

By Posted on 0 Comments Location: 2min read2016 views

Wedding fever has got the better of us, and with so many Dress Codes what does a Gent wear to mark a formal special occasion? Check out my recommendations on what to wear to that all important official engagement party, which reminds me that my close friends are announcing their official engagement at a formal cocktail party before the big day. I find Weddings are the best way to kick off the summer before the new seasons sporting calendar calls for a change of attire and embark on our summer vacation.

There’s never been a better time to discover tailoring that looks great, no matter what season it is and of course fine accessories to match. I recommend a great range of watches by brands Larsson and Jennings or Smart Turnout which I love for their vibrant watch straps just like the one I have is a classic preppy style. The look is now complete which reminds something is missing perhaps gifts for the future Bride and Groom as I still have a bit of time to organise finding the perfect gift before this week’s engagement party!

STYLE INSPIRATION IDEAS FOR NEW YEARS EVE PARTY ATTIRE

WHAT TO WEAR TO A BLACK TIE NYE MASQUERADE BALL

 

New Years Eve Outfits

New Year’s Eve the one day of the Year you can reflect on your life on the best parts and remove all negativity and just focus on the good things which are worth holding onto. I like to think of it as a ritual cleansing process to put the past behind you and start fresh. Whatever that maybe, it can be anything you like from toxic relationships, New Year’s resolutions and a wardrobe de-tox.

But, first and foremost finding the perfect party attire on New Year’s could also be a decadent affair to dress and impress. You can’t go wrong with some of these pre-selected luxury items by mixing Italian and Quintessentially British Style to achieve a well polished look just in time for Midnight Celebrations.

This year, I decided to Celebrate New Years Eve with close friends at the most beautiful London town house for a Masquerade themed Ball at The House St Barnabas in the West End. I remember the twinkle of the fairy lights all illuminated as they gleamed with soft lighting which gave character to the ambience – a great atmosphere too.

I just can’t wait to try some of these looks for myself as you have a choice between classic and contemporary looks which define elegance at its finest for all you discerning gentlemen be sure to look your best. British Style favourites of mine include Turnbull & Asser for their pristine cut shirts to accessories from Paul Smith, Aspinal of London and Italian classic labels by Salvatore Ferrgamo.

There are some great options from Mid-range to the High street such as Tuxedo Tailoring in Midnight Blue with Shawl lapels from Thom Sweeney which you can wear with your favourite bow tie, a pair of Boss Black formal footwear and a smart ASOS winter overcoat. You still have time to shop before midnight strikes 12 tomorrow evening as we say goodbye to 2017 in style.
