Denim From Primark

Craig takes a trip to Primark to take a look at their range of denim and puts a look together from the latest range in stores.

One of the things that I aim to do with my blog is share all sorts of styles, for all sorts of budgets and inspire those of different views to try something different or try a different store when shopping for a new look. As we know, Primark is a low cost fashion store that offers a huge range of up to date clothing for the fashion conscious on a budget. This casual look has all been chosen from the very latest selection in stores right now.

Every guy needs jeans. Primark’s current range has a huge selection of denim in a wide range of styles, colours and cuts. From straight leg to super stretch skinny and from the darkest black to the palest faded blue. Some are plain, others are ripped or faded, so there’s something there to suit all styles. View Post

Great denim from White Stuff, Part 2 – Gin

Craig of That Dapper Chap shows us how he styled the ‘Gin’ jeans from White Stuff, and tells us how we can win a weekend away courtesy of the White Stuff #SLICEOFSUMMER competition

In part 1 of the White Stuff denim series I wore the Whisky jeans. Staying with the boozy theme White Stuff also offer us the ‘Gin’ jeans. Just like the Whiskey jeans they come in mid wash, rinse wash, but also in antique wash. The jeans I’m wearing today are the rinse wash.

As it was such a beautiful day that we decided to shoot this post at our beach hut on the British coast.

The Denim Jeans Style Challenge – Look Five

That Dapper Chap shares the last of five looks in the denim style challenge, creating five very different looks from just two pairs of jeans.

This is a sponsored post of honest and unbiased opinion

Welcome to the final edition in this denim jean style challenge, where I am creating five distinct styles with just two pairs of jeans from If you haven’t already read the details of the challenge or the very interesting denim survey results by Burton Menswear, find it HERE

Look Five – Weekend Style

So, here we are with the last installment in the Next jeans style challenge. This last look is another very casual styling using the rip repair denim jeans which you can find HERE for £45.00.

This look will take you from that Sunday afternoon stroll in the park, to that pub lunch with your mates. The boots keep the look masculine and are a classic brogue style in a rich brown leather. Great for this time of year with rain always on the horizon!

To keep out the spring chills I chose a textured knit cardigan with a shawl collar in a mustard colour, all three of these elements are very on trend right now.

To keep track of the time I chose a beautiful watch with brown leather strap. The brown herringbone wool blazer stops the look from becoming too casual and also adds warmth. Don’t be afraid of wearing a blazer of a chunkier cardigan, just be sure that you can move freely!

The shirt is a red and white striped cotton shirt and it has umbrellas printed on it which I thought was appropriate for this time of year here in the UK.

Keep track of the time with a great timepiece
