Classic Levi Jacket and Striped Sweater, Over 40 Menswear

Denim jacket, striped sweater - casual menswear
I've always liked the cut of a classic Levi jacket and paired with this striped sweater, you have the perfect combination of old and new styled together. The denim is great for layering (as you shall see in posts to come I'm sure), as well as on its own as a jacket without being accessorised. >>

Chinos and Leather Jacket With Fake Hoodie

Menswear: Grey marl hoodie and leather jacket
This is the first outing for my leather jacket and gloves this side of the summer. The secret of this jacket is in the hood - it's removable, which gives the illusion of a hoodie without the extra layer underneath. It's a great concept and this is a great jacket. >>

Baker Boy Hat and Dark Denim Menswear

Dark denim shirt, grey trousers, baker boy hat \ over 40 menswear
The thing is... I like hats. Unlike most other accessories you can incorporate into an outfit, plopping a titfer (which means "tit-for-tat" - cockney rhyming slang for hat) on your head can be the difference between cool and stylish or "Why exactly did I bother dressing today?!"

I've got a pretty big head (so my wife keeps telling me), so hats don't always work for me but I persevere nonetheless, just out of sheer determination to find one that is... perfect. Some blokes can put on anything even vaguely hat-like and carry off the look just fine. >>

Smart Weekend Style | Blazer and Jeans

Last weekend I thought I'd wear my favourite jeans again - this time with a smart blazer and shirt combo. The pre-requisite pocket square says "dapper"; this one is from recently-launched brand The Hanky Chief. A pocket square is the perfect finishing touch to a blazer and they're one of my favourite accessories (I'm slowly building up a nice collection). >>

Over 40 Menswear | Double Denim With Desert Boots

Double denim menswear with desert boots
Double denim: These two words used in conjunction conjure up a multitude of imaginative menswear outfits... (mostly revolving around faded denim and a mullet, for those of us who are old enough to remember the eighties!). But guess what, it doesn't have to be that way, what about some nice dark blue jeans and a long over-shirt?

So let's be thankful to the power and awesomeness of "double denim", top it off with a pair of desert boots and... voila! I give you a considerable improvement on this eighties sinful creation. >>

Blue Reiss Suit, Orange Tie and Matching Pocket Square

Hi there everyone.

Today I've decided to push the boat out with this blue Reiss suit, orange tie and matching pocket square with brogues. It has to be said that you get what you pay for and, well... this suit is so comfortable and well made, it's certainly worth investing in "the one" that will make you look absolutely bang on trend AND turn heads!

My flagrant use of orange is also a bold move that really stands out against the dark suit, as is the flash of the same colour in my socks... it's all about orange here, isn't it? >>

Preppy Style for the 40 Something Gent

Over 40 Menswear: shirt, tie and v-neck sweater
Hello again!

A preppy style is great if you want to incorporate a tie and shirt with the ever reliable v-neck sweater. This look is one I often use for a nice evening out or a celebration of some kind.

Depending on how much I end up eating and drinking I find I can ditch the tie at some stage (normally when I'm about to burst). You can then undo your top shirt button and maintain an air of respectability. >>
