Here at A Gentleman’s Row we have teamed up with The Idle Man to bring you the pick of their new season collection so you can brave the unpredictability of the coming seasons in style.
The Suede Jacket
There aren’t many style tips I would recommend any man take from the 70’s but this current season the high street is awash with everything flower power. Sift through the garbage and invest in a quality suede jacket (minus the tassels of course!), and The Idle Man have just the ticket.
With a western twist this thick jacket will see you through as an ideal transition piece. Men, wear this with a simple tee and black jeans to scream effortless cool. Don’t over complicate it, let this piece do all the talking.
The Roll Neck
There is one more item you can borrow from the 70’s and that is the roll neck. Before you all start spamming the comments section with ‘why don’t you just go and marry the 1970’s’ and the like, technically the roll neck has been around long before the 70’s just ask the arctic explorers (if they are still alive). But it was the 1970’s that seemed to give it a bad rep.
Men, this is such a versatile item that it would be stupid not to have this in your wardrobe come those colder months. It is easily adept being worn in replace of a shirt to the office underneath your suit as teamed with chinos and chukka boots for a more laid back look.
Now nobody wants to be that person who stars in a Youtube video by falling arse over tit on the way to the office. Lets be honest we have all falling foul at times of having inappropriate footwear so invest in a pair of gripped sole boots this winter.
We have picked out these brogues from Base London which will look on point with selvedge jeans and a chunky knit. Not only that, but they will keep you stylishly upright once the snow and ice kicks in.
No, this does not mean a Christmas jumper! Men tend to use layers as a reason to not introduce strong patterns to their everyday outfits. Yes, it will be hidden when you are exposed to the elements but when you arrive at work and remove your jacket you still want to look good don’t you?
This jacquard black and white jumper would look good with a pair of fitted trousers, maybe add a white shirt buttoned right to the top to give this jumper the strong foundation it needs.
I know this isn’t necessarily something you immediately associate with autumn winter but I have put it into the list due to its versatility. For me, a man’s wardrobe should have key pieces that are adaptable to different outfits and selvedge denim is one of them. Just looking at what I have chosen in this list, you will agree that a good pair of selvedge could be worn with any of the looks.
This pair from Edwin at The Idle Man comes with a slightly tapered leg and a slim fit. Perfect for wearing with a blazer and brogues for a more formal look or dressed down with crisp white trainers for a more relaxed feel.
