Sartoria Lab Style Tips
I put this guide together for a recent client to try and demonstrate a beginners guide on what makes items and outfits more casual, gradually going to more formal. It's based on summer wear with some explanations as to what to look out for and other variations you may also want to try.
From what I hear about how some people dress on Dress Down Fridays, I think this is something a lot of men struggle with, so I hope this is a useful guide, particularly around the middle section where it can get more subtle and therefore complicated to achieve.
You've done the hard work online and your profile is looking great and yes..... it's worked - you've got a date lined up. But now there's another problem - what to wear? And this is important - you're communicating non verbally to your date how you feel about yourself and how important the date is to you. It shows respect to the other person to dress well. Here's my guide on what to wear for dating with 3 outfits suitable for various occasions:
If you have a wedding (or two) to attend this summer, then one of the key considerations is what to wear. Here are my tips on how to make a suit less business, more pleasure so it's suitable for a wedding. And if you already have a suit then check out the accessories section for ideas on how you can give it a fresh new look.
A lot of men don't have much colour in their wardrobes, probably because it's more challenging to combine them successfully or they're unsure about what suits them.
So to assist you on how to introduce some colour into your wardrobe this summer, here are my 5 top tips on combining colours whether it's for casual or formal wear.
I've noticed most menswear articles on party dressing feature mainly black tie, but most of my clients are more interested in receiving help to put together outfits that are dressy without being too businessy, and fun without being gimmicky or too young.
Here I've put together a selection of outfits to see you through the festivities!
It's nearly Fireworks night and whether you'll be going to a display or not, I've picked out some fiery coloured knits which would form the basis of a casual outfit for bonfire night and beyond. Add some of these fiery tones to light up the greys, blacks, navys and browns in your wardrobe.
Blue is a colour that most men feel happy wearing, so I've chosen a selection of outfits in varying shades of blue for you to ponder over, offset by some images from Francis Bacon's Man in Blue series. No need to look quite as pained and despairing as his model does though, as according to colour psychologists, blue is the colour of trust and reliability and exhibits an inner security and confidence.
Seersucker is lightweight, cool and comfortable to wear and as an added bonus, no ironing required! What's not to love?! I've searched out some seersucker tailoring for you and put together some outfits which I think would be great for any summer events you have coming up, where you need to look smart but keep your cool.
Getting married soon, or having a civil ceremony and need some inspiration for your wedding outfit? Then look no further, I've put together a variety of looks to help you with ideas for a contemporary and stylish outfit for your special day.
I've chosen pieces of jewellery for men that I think are unusual but still subtle, and styled them with understated black and white. I've featured items from Comfort Station, Bark and Jacey Withers all of whom have a small selection of mens and unisex pieces.
