Knitwear makes tailoring a bit softer and easier
I also like Oxford shirts a lot, which are softer than more formal shirts. Polo shirts are great too as you don’t have to worry about ironing them, and you still look quite smart. With a crew neck you can easily wear a tie, but you could also just wear one with a T-shirt to dress things down a bit further.

Tailored Tip: “When it comes to wearing sneakers with a suit, I think you need unstructured tailoring for it to work.”
Men’s Fashion Tips
During my years working in the finance sector, I would wear Savile Row suits from Richard James or Kilgour, which were more structured. But during this time I was travelling a lot to Italy and I discovered soft tailoring.
Quite simply, it is no longer a requirement for most. Today, wearing a suit is a choice. While there is a wider variety of clothing on offer today than ever before, an increasing number of style-conscious men are choosing to make tailoring part of their signature look.
“You have the roped shoulders, the structured silhouettes and I really respect that. I then love Italian tailoring for spring and summer because its unstructured, lighter fabrics, a bit more fun and playful than British tailoring.”

On the weekend I’ll style a suit trouser with a polo shirt, and dress it down
That’s what I love about the suit. You can take the trousers, mix them up and wear them with something else and you have a whole new look. The versatility, that’s what I love.
