Look Sharp

By Rebecca McNelly-Tilford

August’s theme is Classic, and what can be more classic than a tailored trouser suit? The world of tailoring is timeless and can be off the peg or even a bespoke item of clothing. From classic tailoring that is a two piece suit, add in a waistcoat, still, wear without a tie mixed with modern-day styling, and boom, you really suited and booted. Wear it deconstructed, oversized, colourful, belted, with undergarments for a dash of sex appeal or even lose the trousers and go for a skirt. Tailoring will always prove to be a staple in anyone’s wardrobe; Look sharp.

Deconstruction at its best here in monochrome from the Danish British designer, who always approaches his work from an intellectual perspective.


Colour texture patterns play key roles here in Gucci menswear, alongside a long-slung double-breasted jacket.

Nensi Dojaka

Sex up the tailoring by adding underwear. Turns a work suit into evening wear.

Jil Sander

Another approach to ‘intellectual fashion’. Jackets are key whether extreme in shape or oversized each is a statement piece.


This is all about glamour, here the simple jacket becomes iconic for the evening.

Daniel W.Fletcher

Although relatively structured the suit as shown here is never to be worn with a tie however formal the event.


The option here is to buy for longer with classic British fabrics that echo the rural lands of Great Britain. Style is after all forever.

Whether it be diamonte flowers or spots suiting doesn’t need to be boring.

Eudon Choi

Here colour brings much of this sharp suiting alive. Blues to bright red beige via tobacco give these pieces an elegance whilst still looking very modern


And of course, where would we be without the drama of solid black? or even solid fuchsia for that matter. The long lines add a theatrical almost cinematic bent to these pieces.
