Not that you particularly care about my problems, but I’m in the process of moving into a new apartment while renovating. It’s been nothing short of a nightmare, but its nearly done and when it is, you’ll be the first to see it. Promise.
Anyway, so back to this Fancy Friday from a few weeks back, it was a classic “business” look , but of course with that little modern edge I enjoy so much.
A slim fitting, french blue shirt with a double cuff, classic green and blue preppy striped tie and a classic 2 button grey blazer with black pants. The contrast came in the tan belt and brogues, it’s what made it feel very London businessman to me.
Then, as with everything, its details details details, I wanted to keep it quite simple for this look so kept it classic, directly matched greens on the pocket square and tie, and the brown on the lapel flower so that it didn’t pop out of the neutral blazer too much but still worked with the belt and shoes. Simple silver in everything from the tie clip to the watch and small accessories.
Lets take a look at some of the details:
