That Dapper Chap shares his favourite look from last week and chooses a blue outfit that he wore on Wednesday, teaming pinstripe wool trousers and skinny fit V-neck sweater.
After discovering the Hammond & Co range, designed by an idol of mine: Patrick Grant, I had to get my hands on these trousers. Fantastically tailored and made from pinstripe wool, they are a classic trouser with a modern fit.

Keeping with the classic navy theme (that’s the colour, not the military forces!) I chose a skinny fit sweater, again continuing with that slim silhouette that the trousers afford.

Under the sweater is a classic white cotton shirt, complete with collar bar. The tie is a blue and pink floral which gives a nod to the coming spring and lifts the look, giving some interest and depth.

The location for this shoot is St Mary Le Tower, a local church which I have had an affinity with for huge number of years. It’s a stunning example of a medieval church, and I’m pleased to tell you that I had the opportunity to visit the very top of its spire and look out over the townscape, which I’m sure not many people have had the chance to do.

So, back to the outfit. To keep the early morning chill off I wore a black wool blazer, to which I added a flower lapel, keeping with the floral accent, and also added a grey paisley pocket square.
With my trusty leather briefcase, a navy nato band on my watch, some bead bracelets and my tassel loafers I was ready for whatever the had in store for me.
