Smart Casual Blazer, Sweater and Chinos | Over 40 Menswear

Smart casual menswear: grey blazer, brown chinos, pale blue sweater
Hi all, we've been spoilt in Blighty with the weather in the latter part of this summer. This has led me to sporting a more relaxed approach to my attire, as in the post here. A really smart casual blazer does add a nice touch  - but choose wisely, a badly fitting one looks every bit as if you've borrowed your dad's and he's twice your size... yikes!! >>

A nice lightweight v-neck sweater and chinos still retain the essence of a late summer outfit if you choose to fling your blazer over your shoulder and march off to the nearest pub... ahem, I mean library or museum of course!

If you're dressing for a more relaxed look but still want to smarten your ensemble, what is your must-have piece? Let me know in the comments.

  1. Not a colour combination I would have thought would work... but it totally does! Baby blue and grey look sooooooo good with tobacco brown - what a surprise! Looking sharp :))

    1. Thank you wife. I have to say, this is a very comfortable look. Easy to put together and layer if necessary!

  2. Looking good in that light blue sweater, dear Keith!! And I'm as amazed as your wife is that this palette works so well...you are obviously BOTH stars when it comes to interesting colour combos!!


    1. Hi Monika, it's funny but I'm always thinking about combos, not to the point of obsessive compulsive... not yet anyway, but I'm certainly looking at what works and what doesn't.

      We've just had a really cold day today so it looks like there could be an abundance of "layering" happening very soon.

      Hope you (and the old man) are well,

      Speak soon
