'Spend It Well' at the Marks & Spencer AW17 Catwalk Show

Craig of That Dapper Chap takes us to London for the Marks & Spencer Autumn/Winter 2017 Catwalk show and shares what's coming our way later in the year. 

Last week saw the Marks & Spencer catwalk show, and I was excited to receive an invitation from M&S CEO Steve Rowe. Of course I wanted to attend!

Upon entering the venue I grabbed a much needed cocktail and met up with some of the team, along with fashion folk and TV celebs. After catching up it was time for the show, and we weren't disappointed.

Get Preppy

Craig of That Dapper Chap shows us how to achieve the preppy style and stay on trend this summer.

One trend that I've spotted coming through stronger and stronger in the spring summer collections is the preppy style. While big brands like J Crew, Tommy Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren have been champions of this style for years, it's becoming more mainstream, so I wanted to give you a little insight in to how you can achieve one of this summers key looks.

The effects of fast fashion

Craig of That Dapper Chap explores the effects that 'Fast Fashion' is having on our world and how we can make a difference

Question: What do you do with your clothes once you've decided that they're not for you any more? Are you happy with how you dispose of them?

Let me ask you another question: How long do you think it takes for people in the UK to dump 10,000 old pieces of clothing, like the pile in the picture above? A year? A month? A week? Maybe even a single day?

What I Wore Today #52

Craig of That Dapper Chap shares what he wore today and features a traditional brown check wool suit from Next. 

Being a typical Brit, the weather is one of those subjects that instantly springs to mind. Living in a country where we can 'enjoy' all four seasons in one day (and that is not an exaggeration) it's a subject that's close to our hearts. So, in my typical Brit fashion I'll start with a note on the weather!

I remember only a few short years ago that I got sunburned in April, this year it's fair to say that temperatures are less than usually seasonal, hence me reaching for a wool three piece suit!

High Summer with Hammond & Co at Debenhams

Craig of That Dapper Chap shares details of the new high summer range of menswear from Hammond & Co at Debenhams

Business man, TV personality and Savile Row Tailor Patrick Grant returns to Debenhams as the face of the new Hammond & Co high summer range.

I am a massive fan of Mr Grant and all that he has to offer. From his collection under the E-Tautz umbrella, which received incredible reviews following the catwalk show at the last London Fashion Week: Mens (which I was lucky enough to attend) To the Hammond & Co collection at Debenhams.

What I Wore Today #51

Craig of That Dapper Chap shares what he wore today in this outfit of the day post featuring a statement jacket and boots

This look is pretty much all about the jacket. In a vibrant red and blue check it really does make a statement. While this was available as a full suit (now sold out) I wanted to show you how a suit can be broken up and worn in a less formal way. Just because it comes in three pieces it doesn't mean that it's the only way to wear it!

Debenhams launches Ben Fogle as the face of Racing Green Menswear

Craig of That Dapper Chap joins press and bloggers at the luxurious Cliveden House to celebrate the launch of Ben Fogle as the new face of Racing Green menswear at Debenhams, with a day of fine dining and classic cars

My favourite of the classic cars; a stunning Austin Healey in two tone blue and cream 

Cliveden House in all its majestic glory
After meeting the Debenhams crew and the rest of the guests at Paddington station on a warm spring morning, we boarded our train and headed to Cliveden House in the stunning Taplow countryside. With guests from the Telegraph, The Guardian, Drapers Magazine, Fashionbeans along with myself, Ben from 21st Century Gent and Charlie from Man About Town, I was in good company.
