Following on from my involvement in the recent Tanqueray Drawing Rooms event where I was giving men a hint of vintage style using accessories from Monsieur London and La Bowtique, I've put together some looks to inspire you to give your outfits a touch of the Boardwalk Empire this winter. This stylish series has had a lasting influence on menswear and everywhere you look you can see a bit of Nucky, Lucky or Jimmy's style.
Add elegance to your daily commute and make a strong statement in this fur collared coat. When heading out later for cocktails, swap your regular tie for a bow tie to add extra panache to your ensemble.
