Hi all, I just want to put it out there - I love this suit! These photos are actually what inspired me to start my blog, as they first appeared on my wife's style blog Not Dressed As Lamb in May this year. She was asked if she wanted to do something a bit different from her normal posts of styling her own everyday outfits to help inspire women of 40+ (does that sound like a certain over 40 male blogger?) and instead, style her husband in a suit and shirt. Of course I jumped at the chance!
The suit is a throwback to the classic British mod style ever-present in the Swinging Sixties, which was known for its fantastic fashion statements. I felt really comfortable wearing this two-tone suit, and the beautiful Ben Sherman shirt was quality personified. I gave it a modern twist with brogues and a flash of red (socks), which completed a really nice look for a smart evening out. >>

If it's a quick trip out to the shops to pick up some provisions, it's the perfect opportunity to throw on an easy fit casual shirt and slim tie... rummage around a bit more in the wardrobe and you'll probably find that pair of 501's you know you've got and bingo!!
A belt with a trim of colour really adds interest and a pair of classic Converse completes the look. It's probably fair to say that this is such an easy style to put together and yet it still says "hellooo, trying to be smart here." >>

As we bid farewell to another summer in Blighty, the last golden rays of the setting sun succumb to the chill of the evening, it seemed fitting to throw on a couple of layers and stretch my legs for a walk across this green and pleasant land... did I forget to mention the sound of machine gun fire from the marine training camp about half a mile away????? (Peace and quiet well and truly shattered!!) >>

I really wanted to get this outfit on the blog and that's why "outfit post number 2" is a classic look for most Brits. The Ben Sherman gingham shirt and Harrington jacket encompass a timeless look that can be reinvented for a new generation of "too cool for school" types... or just old geezers like myself who still have these items in their wardrobes after... ahem... several years. >>
