Urban Style Edit for Autumn/Winter 2017

You know me, I love suiting up, looking smart and presentable. Although day-to-day I'm usually wearing dark clothing, mainly ripped jeans and khaki - exactly like the outfit in this urban style edit. This outfit is great especially the khaki longline parka by Religion from ASOS, which I've worn pretty much every day this week when working from home or walking my dog. At home, I like to feel comfortable, a lot of the time I just throw on a pair of shorts and wear a hooded top. To be honest if I didn't have to visit the post office every few hours, the coffee shop or have the postman drop off some parcels - I would probably just sit in my pants all day!

This outfit has been put together whilst shopping at ASOS paired with my new favourite headphones from Bowers & Wilkins, completes my look. In fact I'm wearing it right now at home whilst writing this quick post on a Wednesday night watching The Only Way is Essex and snacking on giant chocolate buttons, living the life! 

Tomorrow I'm heading out of London to Dover in Kent for a wedding, so thinking about it this is actually a really good travel outfit too. Noise cancelling headphones are a must for long train journeys and I'll be suited and booted for the wedding, so yeah I might actually wear it again tomorrow!! I hope you love it as much as I do and if you do - shop it below.

Comfort & Style

Most days I strive to wear stylish, comfortable clothing and with more and more flexible, teleworkers, home workers and companies moving towards an open dress policy at work, this is a major growth sector in the menswear industry. When I look for clothing in this sector, I prefer to ignore the super cheap clothing and focus on something a little more mid-range as I feel that the price and quality of the materials, fabric and design are at the perfect balance.

Manière de Voir are a brand that is in this sweet spot of the casual, trend led, clothing market. Their products are not going to break the bank and what you'll get are clothes that look great and built using a good level of materials. Sometimes you can buy an expensive piece of clothing yet the quality is just not there and you feel a little bit hard done by. That is why, when choosing what to buy, I ignore all brand names so it is a level playing field...I don't care what the label says, I will just try to find the best fitting, the best design, the best fabrics and the best customer care for the money that I wish to spend. That opens up your eyes to good clothing and not just high-street brand names. 

Another brand, Donhall & Bell that sells at a higher price bracket, I would say they are more of a high-end price but also offers good value for money. Their products are well made and pair perfectly with my Manière de Voir outfit for today.
