Style Manual

The modern man’s guide to dressing well every day

  1. Casual Checked Shirt

This season pick a checked shirt as your down time, go-to shirt. This one will look great on its own with jeans or chinos. Layer it open over a fresh white or navy crew neck t-shirt during warmer autumn days, then as the cold sets in you can layer it under a grey sweater or a navy cable knit.

  1. Smart Casual Oxford

Covering all your smart/casual needs is this chambray button down Oxford shirt. A real winner teamed with dark denim or sand chinos. If you’re not required to suit up for work, this shirt will become an office staple as it looks amazing under a chunky knit or textured crew neck jumper. If you need to step it up for a date or night out then just add a navy blazer and even a burgundy knitted tie for a dapper look.

  1. Smart White Shirt

When you’re required to dress that bit more formal a smart white shirt is an essential in your inventory. If you don’t need to suit up too often then a white shirt is the one to go for as it won’t stand out and shout “Hey, this guy wears the same shirt every time he has to suit up!” whereas a bolder or patterned shirt will. The cut is modern and will look great under a slim fit suit in any colour, plus white is the most versatile for picking a tie that coordinates well.


Now, we’re not saying you should limit yourself to 3 shirts, it would up your laundry day frequency something rotten, but the point we make is that these are this season’s essential styles that no guy should be without, and hey, if you wanted to put money on it, we’d back ourselves to get by on this stellar line up of 3 shirts for a season.
