Autumn / Winter stock is now in full force at all Best Menswear stores nationwide; the next question is to consider is…which are the Best purchases to suit you and your style.
Here is my top 10 Picks, to see you through autumn and beyond…
Leather bag – Saddler is a name synonymous with the finest grade leather products. A bag is the ultimate accessory of longevity in the workplace and for light travel. This piece gets top marks for style and deluxe craftsmanship.
Berry Chinos – the ultimate staple and alternative to jeans, I recommend Selected for their classic cut and relaxed style – they also have a great range of autumnal colours to suit your wardrobe.
Marco Capelli, exclusive to Best Menswear in Ireland, is a go-to brand for well-fitted blazers – taking you from work to the pub. Wear over a white t-shirt or casual shirt for a smart finish.
Brogues – shoes finish an outfit and what better than a burgundy toned Bugatti pair to add polish to either chinos or jeans.
Coat season is around the corner, buying in advance allows you the full choice of this season’s collection. Italian designer Mario Fiorenzo, mixes style and function well in this lapel coat with a removable chest zip panel, making it a versatile and multi-functional investment.
Grandfather shirt – this shirt style has planted itself firmly into the mainstream in recent years and is a cooler, fresher alternative to a traditional shirt, particularly when worn with jeans or chinos.
Gilet – the ultimate mid-season layer for wearing over fine knits or under jackets, this neat number from XV Kings fits the bill perfectly.
Fine Knit – another wardrobe basic, I have chosen this Marco Capelli piece in blue to add light and contrast to darker autumn tones.
Polo Neck – a jumper style that you either love or hate, this is a great introduction to the concept, with a half neck that isn’t too constrictive, in a rich burgundy tone.
Half-zip jumper – adding smart to a casual jumper with a half zip and collar, this is a basic that works from day to evening, when worn with either a t-shirt or more formal shirt.
