That Dapper Chap X Topman – Great Britain, Great Suits

Craig of That Dapper Chap joins Topman for their Suit Style By City campaign which showcases different looks for different UK cities

Every guy needs a great suit, so I was pleased to be asked to be part of the Topman Suit Style By City Campaign, where the brand took seven top UK menswear bloggers and asked us each to represent a city based on what look is popular in that particular city.

Having relations in Brighton, that’s the city I chose. A popular look for guys in this diverse and eclectic city is a roll neck sweater worn under a suit, and this is my take on it.

A good suit is a wardrobe staple and even if you work in a factory or have a uniform that you wear for your 9-5, you will have an event which calls for one at some point, be it a wedding, Christening, funeral, barmitzvah or whatever, you will have one! Yes, you can wear separates but why not really look the part in a sharp suit.

Topman have a great range of suits right now and there’s something to suit all tastes, skinny fit, slim fit and a range of suits at just £100

This skinny fit khaki green suit is from the £100 range and is a great colour. I wear suits a lot so I wanted to get something a bit different. Green is a great spring colour, so with thoughts of warmer weather and the rebirth of nature that’s the path I took. It also reflects the colourful nature of the city that I’m representing.

Sunglasses needed for the winter sun

To go under the suit I chose a stone roll neck. To add a bit of contrast I chose darker accessories such as the brown flower lapel pin, the tortoiseshell sun glasses and the Delta Longwing burgundy leather brogues which I love!

The ‘Maxy’ woven elasticated belt continues the accent story and is by Brydon Brothers. Since it arrived it’s quickly become a firm favorite of mine. 

The burgundy briefcase picks up the colour of the shoes very well and is the multi pocket Batchel from The Cambridge Satchel Company

Brighton itself is a very cool city and as I have family there I have a good excuse to visit! With great cafes, shopping and a truly diverse culture it’s a city that I’d recommend you visit. When you do, just add a note here or add a pic to instagram and tag me! But don’t forget to take that roll neck sweater!
