Here at Master Debonair we are a family and families share things with one another, so we thought it would be nice to invite you into our Wardrobe Picks for this weekend.
Our first edition of Wardrobe Picks is an important one for us, we have asked the Master Debonair staff to pick four pieces that represent their own style. So, grab yourself a coffee (or something stronger, it is Friday after all!), get comfortable and start adding to your basket.
The Gibson London Dark Blue Blazer is, without a doubt, one of my favourites from AW17. The broken check in this windowpane blazer is a wonderful detail and gives a contemporary feel to a classic piece. Wearing a roll neck under the matching waistcoat to the blazer is a great way to layer up for a less formal look. Whether I am off to the pub, football or shopping, this outfit caters for all three. Finishing the outfit off with my favourite go-to jeans by Guide London and calf leather and suede brogues ought to do it!
This month I had the pleasure of attending Pitti Uomo, one of the world’s most important platforms for men’s clothing and accessory collections. It is an amazing place to launch new projects in men’s fashion, such as Master Debonair. I noticed when I was away that a white shirt is the base to most outfits; you can’t get much more classic and every guy looks great in a crisp white shirt. I’m a big fan of a man in a waistcoat and jacket and have yet to see anyone who didn’t look amazing in this Claudio Ligli navy two-piece. Black socks are long gone; it’s all about the bold, crazy statement sock. Never underestimate a sock, it can make or break any outfit. An outfit for all seasons that will never disappoint.
While I am normally one to shy away from bold prints, I have found myself to be a big fan of the Claudio Jeweled Buffalo Skull Shirt. It adds interest to any outfit and normally becomes the talking point of a lot of conversations. I will be wearing mine with a pair of Guide London Indigo Mid Wash Jeans, the Herbie Frogg Waffle Navy Jacquard Blazer and a pair of Barker brogues.
I would definitely say my style is partly male and partly female in appearance. I was once told a long time ago that for every feminine piece that you wear, you have to wear two masculine pieces; this has since become a rule of fashion for me. I am all about the capsule wardrobe; give me a white t-shirt, grey jumper and black polo neck any day to start my outfit with. You can build your armour around any staple piece; the polo neck will take you from office to 7pm drinks with friends. What to wear with it though? Pair with a block coloured blazer, Justin Reece Brooke Boots and a printed hankie, adding a personal flourish to your outfit.
