It has been a busy few weeks for me but very exciting. I was the male model for our latest brochure that landed on doorsteps the other day. It was great to assist with the styling and create inspirational looks from our vast array of menswear, I am hoping you all enjoy what you see when it comes through your door.
A few of us from the shop also went on a trip to London to see some exhibitions and generally take in what is happening within retail in the city. As I am currently working in the suit department I was keen to look at the menswear shops and what trends were key within tailoring. I was pleased to see a lot of ‘classic’ styling and finishing, which is a personal favourite of mine. Slim double breasted blazers are making a comeback with the formal peaked lapel which is a contrast to all the narrow lapels we have seen of late. I also saw a hint of Prince of Wales check and an early nod towards tartan which is set to be huge for the Autumn.
Right now I am wearing a classic gold button blazer with ankle skimming trousers and tassel loafers but I am looking to revamp my summer wardrobe for the better weather. I have just invested in new fresh white Nikes and running shorts so I can get exercising outdoors but I have my eye on the new Bjorn Borg swim shorts. The bright colours are great fun for the beach but my particular favourites are the nautical navy and white stripes, now I just need to book my holiday!!
