Versatile British Tailoring for Workwear and Weekend Wear

British workwear tailoring by Arthur Shirtley: Smart casual menswear outfit \ tweed blazer \ check shirt \ dark wash straight leg jeans \ brown high top brogues | Silver Londoner, over 40 menswear
The idea of workwear is (to some) not worth investing in due to obvious reasons: Why spend a great deal of money on something you only wear at work? Is this investment really necessary?

The Gingham Shirt: A Menswear Wardrobe Essential

Smart Casual Menswear: Gingham Check Shirt \ Cardigan \ Grey Chinos \ Desert Boots \ Silver Londoner, over 40 style
It's been a long road coming out of the winter months but I think we can finally wave goodbye to the cold dark days and look forward to warmer, longer, sunnier days allowing us chaps to wear outfits that express the feeling of having a spring in our step.

Styling Casual Brown Chinos, Over 40 Menswear

Casual Menswear: V-neck Jumper \ T-shirt \ Chinos \ Grey Jacket \ Canvas Boots \ Silver Londoner, over 40 style
After the craziness of the weekend that was the UK Blog Awards (at which the wife Not Dressed As Lamb won in the Fashion & Beauty category!), I was happy to swap my smart suit for some casual brown chinos. Huge congratulations to Catherine - third time lucky as they say!

Layering With a Hoodie to Achieve a Smart Casual Look

A layered smart casual outfit: Striped tie \ dress shirt \ grey cardigan \ grey hoodie \ Harris tweed jacket \ jeans \ grey brogues | Silver Londoner, over 40 menswear

The great thing about layering is its practicality: Depending on the season, the colder it is, the more layers you can generally wear.

A Smart Stylish Alternative to a Suit and Tie, Over 40 Menswear

Smart menswear: Blue blazer \ striped sweater \ grey dress trousers \ brown brogues | Silver Londoner, over 40 style
As you can probably see from the photos it was extremely windy and I had a bad hair day! Always one to persevere, it was definitely time to wear a striped jumper with this nice blue jacket, a pair of grey trousers and brown brogues [similar] to finish off the outfit.

A Harris Tweed jacket and roll neck can really look good when winter is coming to an end but it's still too cold to get your summer clothes out.

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.

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, and it didn't require much in the way of getting-ready time which is a good thing.

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, and with this you could wear a patterned or cable knit cardigan (like mine).
