The Brogue With a Twist

If your guy loves a classic shoe, the Rothko brogues from Base London come with a tweedy twist in the form of a cool inlay. In sizes 6 to 12 they’re available in 5 inlaid styles and 7 colourways without the inlay. It’s the pièce de résistance from the Base London Artist range and will look great with winter wool suit for some super dapper styling.

What I Wore Today #50

Craig of That Dapper Chap shares today’s look including clothing from Hammond & Co, Burton & Next with watch by Ice Watch

Today I decided to wear what I like to refer to as a ‘relaxed dapper’ look. The blazer, waistcoat and bow tie make the look super dapper but the jeans give the look a less formal and more relaxed look than it would have had if I’d worn the matching suit trousers.

The navy suit blazer, collared grey waistcoat and stripe shirt are all from Hammond & Co at Debenhams and it’s a collection that I’m a fan of and wear often.

Today’s watch is the Ice-Watch Sixty Nine with blue silicon blue strap, available from F.Hinds jewellers for just £69.95. With a larger 8 x 11mm blue case, an easy to read 33mm blue dial, white luminous hands and a matching blue bezel with white accents. It’s water resistant and is fitted with a mesh-effect blue silicon strap with buckle.

The jeans are from Burton Menswear and I’ve been really impressed with the fit of their new range of denim. I’ve brought jeans from Burton before and the fit was a little off but I’m pleased to say that whatever issues they had have been resolved and these fit really well as you can see.

The bow tie is from Bows N Ties and is the wool medallion print self tie bow tie. While it is a self tie it also has a hook and eye fastener so that once it’s successfully ties you are able to simply remove it still ties by unhooking it.

The silver bracelet is the punched silver cuff bracelet by Alex Orso. It adds a contemporary element to a classic look.

The The bag is the black leather Calvino briefcase my Maxwell Scott Bags. You may remember the unboxing video on my You Tube Chanel.

And last up are the boots which are from Next. And the look is complete! I hope you approve? Please feel free to leave a comment below to let me know what you think.
