Winter warmer

Craig of That Dapper Chap looks to Just Sheepskin for cosy toes this winter.

So, we’re in the middle of January, snow, sleet, hail and rain are making us cold and miserable. In these situations I need comfort, comfort food, hot chocolate, a log fire and a warm and cosy pair of slippers. That’s where Just Sheepskin come in.

My own ‘Eaton’ slippers as seem on my Instagram page

With a variety of great slippers on offer for men, women and kids my favorite are those made with Harris Tweed and I’m lucky enough to now own a pair.

They offer two versions, with a back or backless. The backless ones are okay if you’re forever slipping them on and off and it makes things easier however I opted for the full slipper and can vouch for the fact that they are some of the cosiest and stylish slippers I have ever owned!

Time to put my feet up

Established in 2002 Just Sheepskin are now one of the top sheepskin footwear brands in the UK. The backless ‘Russel‘ slippers are priced at £55.00 and the full slipper ‘Eaton‘ which I have are £60.00. Both are well worth the money and they will last you years.

The Day Time Look

For the day I chose a plain white long sleeved T-Shirt which has grey stitching to coordinate with the grey in the outfit. Keeping the look paired down I also wore white pumps creating a simple but strong look.

The Night Time look

To take it up a notch I changed into a white cotton shirt and a navy bow tie. The pocket square and cuff links add some elegant details. I switched out the white pumps for some black suede slippers and I was ready to party!

What I Wore Today #42 – The TM Lewin Shirt

Craig of That Dapper Chap shows us one of his daily looks in this #WhatIWoreToday post wearing a new shirt by TM Lewin

The styled up flat lay as seen on my Instagram page

The TM Lewin slim fit Geo print shirt £39.95

TM Lewin first opened in the famous Jermyn Street in London in 1898 and pioneered the button front shirt, since then they have built a reputation for quality menswear using some of the same techniques used all those years ago. With over 100 stores now in the UK you’re never far away from being able to get yourself a great new shirt and any other piece of menswear that you may be in need of!

This wool blazer keep out the autumn chills

So, using the TM Lewin shirt as a basis for this look I went with a blue theme but wanted to bring in a bit more of a contrasting colour story with some deep red, complementing the navy and creating a bit more interest.

Since getting this blazer it’s become a real favorite. It’s a less formal style and has some quirky elements and design features that are missing from a lot of others out there. These little additions give the blazer a bit more personality and therefore you do too by default just by wearing it.

It’s all in the details with buttons and wristwear

Walking the walk in this blue outfit for a chilly autumn day

Under the blazer I added a thick cotton waistcoat to add an additional layer against the chill in the autumnal air. Again in navy it continues the colour story and smartens the look up.  The red and blue diagonal striped tie also makes the look more formal and brings the colours directly together.

The detail on the wool mix scarf

Maintaining that blue and burgundy theme, the scarf is another good addition and helps to tie the other elements together. The burgundy in the leather contrasting satchel again continues the theme and shows a considered effort of consistency.

Take a look at the foot of this post for details of brands and links for your to buy anything you like. See you again soon!

Complete with my new embossed satchel
