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.

Christmas gifts for the man in your life from

The gifts above are all available from Coes. First is the Gentleman’s Hardware Buff & Shine shoe shine kit. At £15 it’s a really nice stocking filler to keep his shoes in tip top condition. Next to that is the Secrid card wallet which you’ll see more of in one of the videos below. At £50 I’m a real fan of this modern take on the traditional wallet.  To the right of the wallet is the CHPO Harrold Watch with tan leather strap. It’s a very classic design and will suit most guys. Lastly are some great fur lined gloves by Dents, again there’s more on those in the video.

Mini Me with Next Suiting

Craig of That Dapper Chap shows us suiting by Next in this ‘Mini Me’ Fathers Day blog post

Fathers Day, that one day every year where you get to do nothing! breakfast in bed, coffee on demand and full control of the TV remote control (if you’re lucky)

People tell me that my Son and I look alike, we have no real idea where his red hair comes from, maybe it’s the Irish heritage, but in a lot of ways, especially our humour, our tendency to be a little grumpy in the mornings, and our style, we’re very much alike. The acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree.

For this Fathers day ‘Mini Me’ post Harry chose a blue linen suit from Next, also available in grey the suit has a two-button fastening with single back vent and AMF stitch detail on lapel and pockets. The suit is £150. £100 for the jacket and £50 for the trousers.

A fan of a pin collar shirt, he stayed classic white and chose this single cuff, 100% cotton shirt in a slim fit. Priced at £22 the shirt is also available if a regular fit for gents who prefer a little extra room for manoeuvre.

Harry’s shoes are the navy suede toe cap Oxfords. Priced at £55 they are also available in tan.

I currently have a passion for double breasted blazers so chose the light chambray cotton suit. The suit Double-breasted jacket with peak lapel and twin back vents and is 100% Cotton.

This suit comes with a variety of mix and match components. It’s also available in a single breasted jacket, a waistcoat, and even shorts, perfect for a summer wedding. My suits sits at £110.

My shirt is a 100% cotton button down collar shirt and like Harry’s it’s available in both slim and regular fits.  This shirt is priced at £22.

My shoes are the signature tassel loafers in black. Priced at £80, they are also available in stone suede which are a great alternative option.
