Five ways to wear white jeans

Craig shares details on how to wear white jeans and shows us that we shouldn’t be scared of them.

White jeans, terrifying right? Not necessarily! styled well they can look super sharp, bang on trend and very stylish. Today I’ve put together five looks using white jeans from items all available right now. Just watch the ketchup and make sure that you check every seat before you sit down!


This first look is from Debenhams and I’ve chosen the Hammond & Co off white slim fit jeans and teamed them with a classic white shirt, some tan brogues and a double breasted navy seersucker blazer.

Live Your Moment with Jacamo Menswear

Craig shows us three looks from the current range from Jacamo

Historically Jacamo has been known as the go to place for guys who are taller and bigger than the likes of me, and when I told people that I was going to share three looks from Jacamo they all thought I was too small for the brand. This is a very common misconception as Jacamo offers a wide range of sizes, starting from small, going to 5XL. There’s also a range of great brands available too, from Burton to Brewley & Ritch and from Hammond & Co to Jasper Conran. So for this sponsored post I want to show you that there really is something for everyone!

A Casual Summer Look

This first look starts with the W&B linen trousers in blue. At £35 they are available is sizes 34-54 and you can also get them in stone. I’ve paired them with a linen mix feather print shirt. This is a great summer look, one for holiday or a festival, or just a drink with mates in the beer garden as the sun sets. View Post

The Ben Sherman Style Challenge. Pt 3 – Casual

Craig of That Dapper Chap styles three looks from the Ben Sherman AW15 range. This casual look is the last in the series.

The casual look from Ben Sherman as styled by me

I was really pleased to be contacted by Ben Sherman as asked if I’d like to put together three looks from their Autumn Winter 2015 range. As a fan of the brand, of course I was going to jump at the chance!

I have gone for three distinctly different styles, one smart, one smart casual and the last one casual, just so I can show you the range of clothing that they offer.

This shoot by Ian Clark was shot in Waterloo train station,London,to keep in with the Ben Sherman ‘London Calling‘ campaign.

Look 3 – Casual

For this last look, I took a different stance and went for a less formal look. I know that I could have gone very casual and opted for a T-shirt and trainers, but that’s not really me and this is generally what I refer to as ‘casual’ Some will argue that the shoes are definitely not casual and I totally get that  but overall this look has a casual and much more relaxed feel than the last two looks that you can find HERE and HERE 

Ben Sherman: Big on the button up collar

The duffle coat a great classic coat for autumn winter

As soon as I saw this shirt I had to have it. I’m a huge supporter of the patterned shirt and I love red and blue together so his was a perfect choice for me. Of course I had to wear it buttoned up as it simply wouldn’t be Ben Sherman is I didn’t!

The full casual look from Ben Sherman

These smart slim fit jeans in an all over dark wash maintain a cohesive palette and keep things relaxed. The wool duffle coat is going to keep you warm on those chilly days that sit waiting for us just around the corner. I love the lining of the coat in it’s traditional Ben Sherman mod check. 

Keeping that collar buttoned

The double monk strap shoes and paisley socks

Double monk strap shoes are big right now and in a tan leather these are perfect for this look. They are comfortable and stylish and will compliment a lot of looks over this season. To add some colour I donned a red paisley sock, again paisley being a very mod pattern which fits well with the Ben Sherman brand.
