#OOTD 119 Party Time

Menswear OOTD The Chic Geek suiting tailoring best topThey say the suit is on its way back, but the most important thing for tailoring brands to do is simply is give us suits that we want to wear. It sounds simple, but, if it's good, we'll wear it. I designed this suit with The Drop see more here 

Based on something I already had in my wardrobe by Tom Ford, I had it remade in brown with a pink lining. The new trends coming out of the recent shows were for longer jackets in a double-breasted shape, see more here Whatever you do, just make sure the jacket covers your arse!

Lucky, it coordinates with the coloured elastic on my new Chelsea boots. Now, where's that party?

#OOTD 118 Top Summer Suiting

Menswear OOTD The Chic Geek suiting tailoring best top

Summer isn't all shorts and sandals, it can also be a time for formal occasions and those days when you just feel like making an effort. Putting on a suit, after a break, can be, almost, liberating. It's that old feeling of a uniform that runs throughout British menswear and that comfort in feeling 'dressed'.

A checked suit adds more interest, a waistcoat adds more formality and a black vinyl raincoat adds, well, it just ADDS! See more of the vinyl trend - here

#OOTD 117 World Cup Casual

Watching World Cup Football OOTD

Regardless of whether you like football or not, they'll be no escaping the World Cup when it starts in Russia shortly. I can't remember how many 'years of hurt' it is now, but, expectations aren't particularly high with regards to the England team. That doesn't mean that I don't care.

Settle down in front of the TV and start shouting, "Come on, England!"

#OOTD 116 Festivals SS18

Menswear blogger Chic Geek OOTD festival fashion

We all love a good festival, it's as British as bunting and warm cider. So, when it's time to get those chicken legs out, go bold and put bright colour with bright colour. (Oh, and something waterproof, we all know how the weather works!).

It's also practical, because it's good to stand out from the crowd, just for your friends' benefit. Just add some Gallagher swagger!

#OOTD 112 Back To The Future #Sponsored

OOTD menswear coats jackets House of Fraser Tommy Hilfiger

Our love of the 80s continues. From the music to the films to the fashion, it’s the decade that keeps on giving. 

The big trend, fashion wise, is 80s sportswear and this is the look you should be following. 

Go for larger fits, especially in coats and jackets - I’m wearing a large here - with strong, contrasting primary colours.

This jacket by Tommy Hilfiger is from House of Fraser and perfectly illustrates the new look while heavily referencing its vintage archive.

Team with dad jeans, branded socks and retro trainers. Don’t forget the gold chain or necklace for that final, confident flourish. Read more why here

Are you ready, Player One?!

#OOTD 110 SS18 Trends Out In

Your shirt should be like fashion, this season - one minute you're in, and one minute you're out. Or, you could just compromise, like seen on the Marni catwalk, and wear it half-in and half-out.

It's like messy business attire. The walk of shame, the morning-from-the-night-before chic. Try it.
