Craig of That Dapper Chap shows us what he wore today in an outfit from White Stuff
You already know that I’m a huge fan of White Stuff, their quintessential English style and that heartfelt vintage edge that they have and give us each season.
Spring has popped in to say ‘hello’ and while she’s welcome, we’re all hoping that she doesn’t hang around for too long before Summer waltzes in with promises of scorched skin and warm evenings with cold wine and old friends.

So to celebrate the Weeds & Wonders that Spring brings with her, I donned my White Stuff outfit, hopped into my 1967 Morris Minor and spent the afternoon enjoying a local park which has its roots in medieval history.

This is a look that would be suitable in most modern offices, it’s smart without being too stuffy. It isn’t a suit, but the matching grey ‘Billiard’ herringbone waistcoat and blazer makes it less casual than it could be without them.

To brighten things up I pulled out some coloured trousers. These are the ‘Hue’ jeans in berry. The ‘Steve’ spotty socks tie the grey and burgundy together and the ‘Harry’ tie continues that colour theme.

I’m already in love with these chocolate brown suede shoes. Called ‘Jimmy’ they’re made from sturdy suede and have leather piping around the edges. They’re also super comfy.
The shirt is another new fave. It fits well and has a nice feel to it. This is the ‘Tennon’ dobby shirt in a soft berry colour. It’s pure cotton and has a contrast stitching which adds that bit of additional interest that White Stuff are famous for.

After enjoying a spring afternoon walk in the park, admiring the architecture and the new life that thrusts itself from the soil with new renewed vigor we made our way back to the car. It quickly became apparent that she wanted to stay and she refused to start! With a swift tinker and a gentle nudge we got her working again and we were on our way home.
