Get your motor running! Channelling a little bit of James Hunt by way of the Bay City Rollers, TheChicGeek gets a large dose of 70s in this look from Topman Design's AW15 collection. The jumpsuit is a major trend for this season. Add the badges and the bright colour and it becomes glam-rock fantastical. Hold on tight!

It's a very exciting week at New Look, this week, as they open the first of their menswear only stores. The first in a whole raft of UK men's destinations open in Portsmouth and Wigan, followed swiftly by Manchester Trafford and Merry Hill.

Perfect for that stylish autumnal…

#OOTD 51 - Chic Geek Collections - Coach 5/6

The first menswear outing from American brand, Coach, saw some of the best and largest sheepskins of the season. New Creative Director, Brit, Stuart Vevers, reinterpreted his womenswear coats for men with huge furry pockets and contrast detailing ending with TheChicGeek in a look that would make Del Boy proud!

Trying his best to keep his fringing out of the torrential autumn rain, TheChicGeek sought shelter in one of London's finest Georgian arcades. Wearing one of the key pieces from the Dsquared2 catwalk, TheChicGeek opted to dress up this typical cowboy style leather jacket for evening with a printed shirt and embroidered cropped trousers, all from the same collection. The result is something on the Mexican border - one part cowboy, one part Mexican fiesta and plenty of ChicGeek! Credits - All AW15 Dsquared2 Shot by Robin Forster on #OlympusPEN More images below
They're watching you! Looking as inconspicuous as TheChicGeek can, TheChicGeek is feeling a little bit surrounded by Fendi's bug eyes. From bags to phone covers to watches, Fendi's, now signature, bug eyes are the style talisman protecting him from any fashion mistakes! As for the look, this ultra warm corduroy trench coat, lined in shearling, is the ultimate in 1970s style menswear. Teamed with jumbo wale corduroy trousers and handsome loafers, TheChicGeek is certainly safe from the elements too. Credits - All AW15 Fendi Shot by Robin Forster on #OlympusPEN More images below
Louis Vuitton's men's collection for AW15 looked to the British designer and artist, Christoper Nemeth, for inspiration. Nemeth considered making clothes as one of his artistic practices. Amongst his trademarks are deconstructed tailored suits and drawings/illustrations depicting thread, needle and hands - the making of clothes - which are also featured on clothing accessories, furniture and more. Born in Birmingham, England, he moved to London in 1979 to study painting at Camberwell College of Arts. While he continued to paint after university, he also taught himself pattern cutting and sewing, making his own clothes out of discarded post bags and…

Marks & Spencer has asked TheChicGeek for his top tips when it comes to looking for and buying a new suit. #TheChicGeekSays 1. Fit is the most important thing when buying a suit. Find items in your size first, then decide on the style and material. Pay particular attention to the shoulders, cuffs and hems of the trousers. 2. Jacket sleeves should stop at the base of the thumb and trousers should gently break on the shoe. 3. The length of the jacket should be in proportion to your height. If you are taller, then opt for a longer jacket.…

#OOTD46 - #BeachGEEK 4/4

The British have always had a very particular look when they hit the beach. Every Bank Holiday it used to be a case of taking one's jacket off, rolling up your trousers, knotting a hanky on your head and paddling up to your ankles, well, it seems not much has changed! Stripey windbreak in hand, TheChicGeek hit the shingle in this retro beach look of white wife-beater and pastel pyjama bottoms. Catching up on his reading and admiring the view, TheChicGeek is the geek version of a stick of rock: it runs all the way through him. #BeachGEEK Credits -…

#OOTD45 - #BeachGEEK 3/4

Are you BeachGEEK body ready?! Well, no matter the answer - to be honest, I'm not quite sure what beach body ready means anyway!! - monochrome hides a multitude of sins while being as timeless as a 99 ice cream. Strip the colour out of your beachwear and look for black and white stripes in various thicknesses. Team with dark sunglasses and matching sandals and you're good to go. Just don't forget to apply lots of sun protection so you don't get a 'newspaper tan' - black, white and red all over! #BeachGEEK Credits - Striped Top - Burton, Bag…
