Styling the Zara summer check jacket

Craig shows us what he wore today, wearing a summer check jacket by Zara and shoes from Deichman

With just a white shirt and jeans, it’s possible to still stand out from the crowd by making sure that your jacket and shoes make a statement. It’d be so easy to just throw on a sweater, but why not add a little more of a dapper edge and go for a cool summer blazer and a great pair of shoes? 

As soon as I saw this houndstooth blazer from Zara I had to have it. Half lined, it’s a great jacket for summer and the red, white and blue check is not only fantastically patriotic but also makes a bit of a statement. View Post

Deichmann Brogues

Craig shows us two distinctly different styles while wearing a pair of autumn winter brogue boots from the new range at Deichmann

Deichmann Shoes

With over 400 different styles of men’s shoes in stock Deichmann are a pretty big hitter in the footwear market. From humble beginnings in a German cobblers over 100 years ago, they are now one of Europe’s market leaders, having a presence in over 25 countries and over 3,800 stores. Holding everything from sports shoes, walking boots and classic brogues, you’re going to find a style you want.

Most recently however they have launched a brand new range of brogues, some classic, some with interesting twists, just like the boots that I’m wearing. For this sponsored post I wanted to show you how a single pair of boots can be worn in two distinctly different ways. One super smart, one casual. So often guys think that because a shoe looks smart that it can’t be dressed down. Well, it can and I’m here to show you how.

My Boots

The boots that I chose are the Borelli two tone formal lace up boots. Perfect for the season, they have a classic vintage look to them. Very on trend, they are made from leather with a plastic sole. With a zipper on the side and laces, they’re easy to get on and are comfortable to wear. The high shine and burnished toe are nice touches and they’re a boot that makes a bit of a statement.
