Okay so unfortuently I haven't taken these photos outside my own mews in London W1, I'm not that flash...but I've made up for it with what I'm wearing, luxury mews meets luxury tailoring. When dressing up or suiting up in 2017, look no further than double-breasted and pinstripe suits and if you are confident enough, why not try and combine the two.
2017 is sending us First Class some Italian style and I really hope this menswear trend finally gets adopted by the stylish British men. Double-breasted and pinstripe suits are nothing new, in fact they are a sartorial classic. However this style rarely gets the attention it deserves on our shores as we tend to veer towards single breasted blazers and it is time to mix it up a little.
I went shopping along Oxford Street and found a perfect navy double-breasted, pinstripe suit from Reiss. The sizing was pretty much bang on for the blazer however the trousers needed a slight tailoring adjustment, but no biggy. I've combined the suit with a 100% cotton, extreme cutaway, fine blue striped shirt from Hawkins & Shepherd. Keeping with the luxury feel to this tailoring, the cashmere, peak lapel overcoat is also from London's Hawkins & Shepherd. To complete this look, I'm wearing some suede slippers by Donhall & Bell, grey wool tie by Reiss, tortoiseshell glasses by KITE, a leather briefcase by Launer and finally an incredible limited edition Jaeger-LeCoultre Grande Reverso Night & Day Q380848L watch exclusively available at The Watch Gallery.
