Style Manual

The modern man’s guide to dressing well every day

This week we headed to London Collections Men 2016 to capture how the most stylish stay smart when the temperature drops.

From 3-piece suits and winter coats to textured knits and plenty of denim, our selection of the best dressed captured outside the shows demonstrate how to wear key pieces for this season and the next.

The coat
The coat

Elegant and stylish, these three gentlemen show how you can wear that winter staple – the coat. Throw over a black or grey roll neck with jeans to bring your outfit together effortlessly. Add a scarf or blue denim jacket for an extra layer of warmth and flash of spring colour. And don’t forget the details – a belt can instantly sharpen up your style.

The textured knit

The jumper is back but this time it’s all about texture. From fine ribbed to chunky-knit style, the textured knit will continue to be a hit throughout this season and the next. Wear a chunkier style in place of your coat or team a mid-weight gauge knit with a winter coat that you can peel off when you’re at work or home.

The short jacket
Short jackets

Great for winter, even better for spring, short jackets such as bombers, Harrington jackets and biker jackets offer warmth and style in your downtime. Pair with jeans and a roll neck when it’s particularly chilly or over a round neck tee or open denim shirt in milder weather.

Whatever the weather, sweatshirts and hoodies will always be a hit. Wear a plain or flecked version under your jacket or coat with jeans and a rucksack for a sporty spring style.

When it comes to casual, jeans are a must-have. From darker indigo to black jeans, denim is a go-to for this season’s stylish men. Denim looks good with just about anything, you can smarten them up with a winter coat or go off-duty with sweatshirts and short jackets.

The smart suit

Sharp suits

Nothing beats a sharp suit and at LC:M many of the city’s finest gentlemen showed off their personality by adding little touches of detail such as a tie pin, scarf or pocket square. By opting for a 3-piece or a textured knit under your suit jacket, you can wear a suit in the colder weather. And don’t forget you can always swap out your shirt and tie for a roll neck. Team with double-breasted styles to look impeccably smart this spring.
