How to Style a Vintage Harris Tweed Jacket for the Transitional Season

Smart casual menswear; roll-neck \ grey tweed blazer \ skinny jeans \ tan brogues - Silver Londoner, over 40 menswear
A Harris Tweed jacket and roll neck can really look good when winter's coming to an end but it's still too cold to get out your summer clothes.

This jacket is very easy to style (and looks great accompanied by denim and brogues) and certainly keeps you comfortable and warm. I think the grey-on-grey works well in this outfit. I don't know if any of you recognise what type of gloves I'm wearing, but amazingly they're Austrian police gloves. I found them while looking for standard black gloves on eBay - it's funny where your search can take you and what you end up finding.

My jacket was one of two secondhand ones I bought quite recently (again on eBay) where you'll find an abundance of Harris Tweed at some very reasonable prices. The fabric is such high quality that when you wear it, you just know you're wearing something that has a bit of history.  >>

Can Men in Their 40s Wear a Baseball Cap Without Looking Scruffy?

How to wear not-too-skinny skinny jeans: Grey wool jacket \ baseball cap \ striped scarf \ desert boots | Silver Londoner, over 40 menswear

This is definitely a dress-down look for me, more "let's go shopping" or "go to the cinema" than planning for a nice meal out in the evening. The jeans and sweatshirt are mainstay items that require no fanfare, the desert boots, jacket and scarf add style.

Then we come to the matter of the baseball cap. >>

Styling a Harrington Jacket Steve McQueen Style

Casual weekend wear for over 40 men: Harrington jacket \ white t-shirt \ grey chinos \ white Converse | Silver Lononder, over 40 menswear blog
This outfit is certainly a simple ensemble - a white t-shirt topped with a Harrington jacket, grey chinos and classic Converse All Stars, it didn't require much in the way of preparation time which is a good thing.

A Harrington jacket and white t-shirt are very 'Steve McQueen style' and the Converse are just as stylish today as they have ever been... a timeless classic it's fair to say. >>

A Stylish Way For Over 40 Men to Wear a Cardigan

Smart casual menswear: Cable knit cardigan \ shirt and striped tie \ camel chinos \ canvas lace-up shoes \ RayBan Clubmasters | Silver Londoner, over 40 menswear
I've always been a fan of mixing formal wear with a casual look. A shirt and tie can be worn with a pair of chinos and desert boots to give a more relaxed look to an outfit, along with this you could wear a patterned or cable knit cardigan (like mine). Let's face it, cardigans get a 'bad rap' and always have, but I find that they are a good utility piece and can be used as a replacement for jackets or waistcoats as seen here. >>

I'm Back! How to Layer With a Denim Jacket | Over 40 Casual Menswear

Casual weekend outfit \ denim jean jacket \ check (buffalo plaid) shirt \ skinny jeans \ brown lace up boots | Silver Londoner, over 40 menswear
Okay... It's fair to say I've been on an extended break from my blog, but I'm glad to announce I'm back and it's full steam ahead!

In truth, my absence has been down to a lack of time to really get involved in posting regularly. But that's all in the past now, and I hope that whatever you see here is of interest to men in their 40s (and over) who are looking for some style inspiration. In fact, not just middle-aged men like myself, but anyone who is looking for lots of everyday looks that can be pulled off by the Average Joe. >>
