Heigh-ho, heigh-ho, it's off to work we go...
TheChicGeek has this woody target firmly in his sights. Dressed in classic forest style of checked flannel shirt, quilted parka and sturdy hiking boots, TheChicGeek whistles Norwegian Wood while he works. What a handsome feller!

Halloween is nearly upon us and we’re all trying to think about which character we want to dress up as for the evening. Well, here’s a suggestion that will continue to run well after the end of October - Chewbacca. Yeah, Chewie, baby, that gentle fur mountain is back in yet another installment of Star Wars and one of our ChicGeek Style Icons of the season.
Left - Chewie
As hairy as hairy gets, Chewbacca is having something of an inspirational moment in the world of menswear right now.
Left - ASOS - £100
A full fur coat on a man can be a) a little daunting and b) way too much if not in a fun-fur kind of way, so think Chewbacca-chic when rocking a new season fur coat. It needs to look like the kind of fur that needs its roots doing - slightly trashy.
So forget the thermal long-johns or that triple layering, just think Chewbacca come wintertime. May the fur be with you!

Hello The Geek! Where do I get a decent slim fit suit from? First I tried budget, so looked at Topman and the Limited Collection suits at M&S. I struggled to find much at Topman, even Oxford Circus, although they have a couple on their website, I am not buying a suit online though! M&S Limited Collection slim fit have great jackets, you can get a nice short fit, even if you are 6ft 2 like I am! The trousers are unlined rubbish though, I have 10 year old hankies with more thread in them!
Left - Paul Smith - 'A Suit To Travel In' - £730
So then onto French Connection/Banana Republic/Zara. Struggling. They all have decent straight/slim fit trousers but when they make a suit they seem to think we want what I would regard as flares! I have one style at FC called Benjamin End to look at, but need to go to Regent Street to do that, maybe this weekend!
Getting desperate I am now looking at Paul Smith/Burberry type of prices, so will soon be forming an orderly queue outside a tailors in Savile Row!
Any other ideas? I am fairly normal shape, 40" chest, 34" waist, 6ft 2" tall.
It can be a hit and miss out there when you're looking for something really specific. I, firstly, would suggest you look for a longer jacket as the shorter jacket styles can look a little out of proportion with your height.
Paul Smith is pushing its new 'A Suit To Travel In', made from high-twist 100% worsted wool. Wool is naturally breathable and wicking, which helps to regulate your body temperature, but the fabric also has incredible life and vitality that helps to keep the suit looking pristine. The men's suit is available in 3 fits: Slim, Soho and Mayfair.

If these are the souvenirs then we'd love to see the gift shop! Think Ryan Gosling in Drive.

Short sleeved shirts and T-shirts from the softest of skins.

You won't be able to afford to dropout if you buy one of these, but at least people will think you're rich enough to!
From Left - Valentino, Saint Laurent
The Jacket Coat
Too big to be a jacket, too small to be a coat... introducing the jacket coat.
From Left - Paul Smith, Raf Simons, Dior Homme
Denim gains its place on the catwalk and Paris follows Milan with the commercial trend in anything designer denim.
From Left - Givenchy, Saint Laurent, Valentino, Valentino, Berluti
The 'Green Man' always heralded spring and 2016 is no different.
