How to Style a Classic Men's Navy Raincoat | With Jeans and Brogues

Menswear: Smart navy raincoat, crew neck knit, gingham shirt, jeans and brogues
I love the style of a classic raincoat paired with jeans and brogues and a smart gingham shirt. The crew neck sweater is a perfect addition to the look, and complements the coat for an overall smart appearance.

The look I have here draws on the traditional British style icons that I love to emulate. The gingham shirt provides the necessary pattern against the solid feel of the outfit and the brogues add an organic touch. My wife actually said that if she could dress a man, this is how she would want him to dress. Of course, I'm happy to oblige... this look is a classic contemporary style for men and us blokes should be able to pull this look off quite easily - honest!

Would you find this a look you'd be comfortable with and easy to pull off? And ladies - what is your ideal look for a man? Let me know!

Sportswear: Fred Perry Top, Converse and Beanie

Casual Menswear: Fred Perry, Converse and Beanie
For a sportswear look, this Fred Perry tracksuit top, Converse, beanie and gloves is just about perfect when you're out for a bracing stroll and you're looking for a snug yet liberating outfit to wear.

If you've just got to keep it spontaneous but still want to put a twist on what you're wearing (especially in the colder months) I like to embrace some classic items. A Fred Perry is synonymous with British style and sub culture, Converse All-Stars are iconic and look great with anything from suits to beach shorts and the beanie is bloomin' comfy!

I really like this look and the fact that it is completely devoid of any formal attire... although I have just bought a pair of brogues so it won't be long before I work the smart look again!

Do you have a sporty look that you can wear without losing your style identity? Let me know, I'd love to hear about it.

Casual Menswear: Levi's Sherpa Collar Denim Jacket, Aviators, Beanie

Casual menswear: Levi's sherpa collar denim jacket, brown jeans, beanie
What could be better than a Levi's sherpa collar denim jacket, aviators and a beanie to confront the chilly winter days that are all too common at the moment? Not a lot really, this is an exceptionally comfortable ensemble and the jacket is top notch. The lining is really thick which is a quality "plus" with the denim, (it IS Levi's after all... whaddya expect, huh).

Slip on a pair of chinos and desert boots and you've got a cool casual style that can be in anyone's wardrobe. Layer with a white t-shirt and a long sleeve top, pop on a pair of timeless aviators and keep your ears warm with a pull down beanie... you're ready to face the world people!!

What would be your ideal combination for a winter casual look? Let me know, I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.
