That Dapper Chap takes us through his look for Wednesday.
|Enjoying the spring sunshine|
|The outfit laid out and ready to wear|
Wednesday started like any other average Wednesday but I was pleased to see that the sun was shining. I wast pleased however with how my hair decided to collapse in the light spring breeze the second that I left the house!
|The stroll to work, bags packed with goodies|
I was styling a photo shoot on Wednesday afternoon so I had a couple of bags with me, filled with various shirts, blazers, ties and accessories. It’s a project that I’ve been working on with a local hair stylish and a local award winning photographer so I was excited that we were finally getting around to the shoot, after a few delays. You can expect the first blog story on that very soon.

So, to the outfit. As you know chinos are a staple items for me and I haven’t worn theses camel coloured ones for a while. I like blue and brown as a colour combination so chose a denim shirt and blazer. I’ve hopefully avoided that ‘double denim’ look here!
To give the look a bit of a vintage twist I opted for some button on braces and some two tone brogues. The vintage paisley scarf also goes to maintain this look and also keeps in with the colour theme.
|Floppy hair, not the look I was going for|
|Time to get to the office!|
As for accessories, I went for a striped knitted tie and added some home made lapel pins to the denim blazer, throw in a pocket square and you’ve added enough personality to ensure the look come across as considered.
