One Blazer, Three Looks - Look 3


This final look falls somewhere between the smart look and that casual looks that I created for you previously. This look will suit a lot of less formal offices, and will also be great for the pub or a casual meal where you want to look good but don't need to be over dressed.

One Blazer, Three Looks with Next - Look 2

Craig of That Dapper Chap shows us the second in this three part series where he creates three very different looks with one blazer.

Welcome back to the 'One Blazer, Three Looks' series where I'm showing you three completely different looks with just one blazer. For guys who travel a lot or those of us that only want to take a cabin bag on that city break, being able to create different looks with just a few select items is a necessity.

Using the grey Italian linen slim fit blazer from Next this is the second look in the series. Part one which gives you a smart office or formal look can be found HERE. So, going to the opposite end of the sartorial scale I've created a very relaxed look again using items from

One Blazer, Three looks with Next - Look 1

Craig of That Dapper Chap teams up with Next to give us three different looks with one blazer

The grey italian linen slim fit blazer from

Nearly every guy I know now has a blazer in their wardrobe, but from what I've seen most guys tend to wear it with the same thing every time they wear it. Maybe it's because it's a similar look to what they saw on the model on the website when they bought it, so they can trust that it's a look that works.

It's a good idea to have a wardrobe which is versatile and contains items that can be mixed and matched to create different looks. I had a recent conversation with Nicky from Blazing Raisin UK who told me "I think blokes are just scared of getting it wrong and it being pointed out by someone" He went on to say "We sometimes need to be shown what goes by someone who knows their stuff" So, while I don't claim to know everything I will say that I have an eye for what looks good and I'd like to share my thoughts with you now if that's okay?

When Next asked me if I'd be able to do a blog post and create three different looks with one blazer I jumped at the chance. This is the first look of three that I've put together which will cover: smart, smart casual and casual, and I'll be sharing the other two looks over the next few days, so please check back and see what you think.

So, with the blazer as the main component, I wanted to initially create a smart look for you to take you to the office or that formal event. The trousers are plain black, slim fit and a thinner fabric which is suitable for warmer weather.

Keeping the look monochrome I opted for plain black socks, slim fit white shirt and a grey knitted tie.

With look one complete, come back soon for look two where I'll take things down a notch and get smart casual.

The Brand New Topman Store

Craig of That Dapper Chap visits the brand new Topman store in London's Knightsbridge on its opening day

The brand new Topman store in London's Knightsbridge

I was super excited to be invited to the opening day of the brand spanking new Topman store at 70 Brompton Road in London.

After seeing the people at Tom Ford in Harrods it was just a skip across the road to see exactly what the new store had to offer. Situated in the lower ground floor of the existing Topshop, which has stood there for a while now, the guys at Topman told me that men would often come out of Harrods and into Topshop while on a shopping spree and were disappointed to find only womenswear on offer. So, not wanting to miss a trick a new Topman opened it's doors.
