Perfect Pairing - macs and umbrellas

Perfect Pairing - macs and umbrellas

Part of looking stylish is dressing appropriately for the occasion, and more often than not that includes factoring in the weather. There’s nothing more satisfying than the smug feeling you get when you know you’ve nailed it - you’re standing up to the elements but you’ve managed to look good too!

Therefore I'd say a mac is pretty essential in every guy’s wardrobe......I've chosen navy as one of the most versatile but you could also go for a classic stone or sand colour. Another thing I always think contributes to looking good, is paying attention to the details. This means continuing your style through to your accessories…..like the umbrella you carry. My current favourites are by London Undercover, some of which you can see below.
