Craig shares what he wore today with an outfit from brands available at Debenhams including Hammond & Co, Jasper Conran and Red Herring
With the Christmas party season upon on us it’s good to have an outfit in your wardrobe that’s going to take you from day to night, from office to pub, so that you don’t need to trek home to change. At Debenhams you’ll find a wide range of top menswear brands that will help you do just that. So today, for this sponsored post I want to show you some items from their current range that will help you do just that.
Lets start from the top and this great navy checked single breasted blazer by Hammond & Co. Available in sizes 38 to 44 it’s 48% wool. The blue, orange and red check in the fabrics add some interest and makes the blazer stand out from others that are available. It’s a great jacket to team with chinos or jeans, as I have here and is more than suitable for the office but is also sharp enough for a night on the town.
Talking of jeans, you’ll find a good selection at Debenhams from brands such as Hammond & Co, Levi’s, Wrangler, John Rocha and Burton among others. I particularly like the navy wash slim fit jeans by Red Herring as they are a nice uniform colour and are again suitable for the office. They’re also not a bad price at just £30.
My shirt is J by Jasper Conran and its the red fine stripe shirt. Down from £42 to £29 it’s available right now at a great price and will also make a great gift. In a regular fit it’s 100% cotton and comes with a button down collar. I can also testify to the fact that it’s also pretty easy to iron, which is always a bonus!
With the shirt I’m wearing the navy luxury polka dot slim tie which is also from the J by Jasper Conran range. At just £20 it’s 73% wool and 27% silk and makes a great addition to this look. Of course as soon as you leave the office you can lose the tie if you’re off to a less formal event.
The scarf I’m wearing is by Hammond & Co and boy did I need that today! Debenhams stock a huge range of accessories like ties, hats, scarves and gloves along with cuff links, braces and anything else that will help you lift and individualise your look. This is the navy geometric print dress scarf so it’s going to be just a bit smarter than the usual knitted scarves so it’s party perfect and is available right now at just £25.
The classic black leather ‘balham’ brogues I’m wearing are again by Hammond & Co and I’m already in love with them. These are also currently down in price from £100 to £70 and are available in sizes 6-11 online. With a contrasting brown sole they are a good shoe to take you from day to night and look just as good with a suit as they do with jeans.
All I needed to do was throw in a pocket square and I was ready for whatever the day (and night) held for me. A pocket square is a nice thing to add to your look, not only does it elevate a blazer to something a little more special but it also allows you to show a bit more personality and add interest. You might choose one to compliment your colour scheme or contrast with it. This one is the dark red silk pocket square from Hammond & Co and is available online and in stores at £14.
I hope you like the outfit that I’ve put together for you and given you a little inspiration if you were thinking of what to wear for your next get together. Maybe you’re not sure about wearing jeans for a night out? Perhaps you’d prefer a smarter look or would dress the look down even more with a T-Shirt maybe? Whatever your thoughts I’d love to hear from you so please leave me a comment. Thanks for stopping by.
