A look for Spring from Burton Menswear

Craig shows us today’s outfit, with a smart casual look from Burton

With the snow gone and warmer weather promising to bring lighter fabrics and less bulky dressing, I wanted to show you a look from the Burton Menswear latest range for spring. With some really nice pieces online and in stores it was quite difficult to choose, but I’m hoping the look inspires you.

The Jewellery

First up is the gold and brown diamond cuff from Alex Orso. At £270 the 3.5mm square gold and brown diamond cuff is cast in solid Sterling Silver, and plated in 22kt Gold. Available in 2 sizes, the cuff features a 1.8mm square brown diamond, discretely fitted flush into one end. The inside surface and edges of the cuff have a high polish, while the outside surface has a brushed satin finish. The product features Goldsmith’s Company hallmarks.

Alex Orso diamonds are sourced through suppliers who comply with The Kimberley Process and the World Diamond Council System of Warranties. The brown tinge of the brown diamond is very subtle making the stone look almost completely clear.

An Autumn Look With Hammond & Co

Craig shows us a look perfect for a British Autumn from Hammond & Co at Debenhams

The leaves have turned their ochre’s and russets and conkers and chestnuts line the floor of the woods in the park. It just has to be Autumn. Time for thicker fabrics and layering, time for scarves, gloves and hats. My favourite season.

Today’s look is entirely from the Hammond & Co range at Debenhams. Anyone who has followed my blog for a while knows that I’m a massive fan of the looks that Patrick Grant gives us each season.

I’ll start from the ground up. While these boots have been around for a while they are still available online. They are the brown leather ‘Surrey’ lace up boots and are £100 and I love mine. The tan colour is perfect for this season and they’re really comfortable to wear.
