Welcome to the first ever Quintessential Style Guide.
A weekly style list of what the Quintessential Gent thinks are the hottest fashion and grooming must haves.
I came across this book a number of years ago and it’s been my saviour. Filled with great tips including rules on tailoring, how to fly in style, how to dress for the boardroom, the beach or golf course. It’s also the inspiration behind The Quintessential Gent.
HEART SKIPS A BEAT:
Burberry Prorsum’s Fall/Winter collection is one of my favorites. Cool and quirky you are sure to break a few hearts with Navy Heart Print Linen Tie.
I have to admit I’m very happy that Ted Baker has created another great Wool blazer this season. This will definitely be a key piece in my wardrobe this season.
BECAUSE I’M WORTH IT:
I have to admit I wasn’t convinced with the new L’Oreal Men Expert Hydra Energetic X-Treme Black Charcoal Face Wash but after giving it a go. I have to say I’ve noticed that my face is less oily and feels less dirty too. A must have. Great tip: use it as a facemask for more effective results.
TO COOL FOR SCHOOL:
Sunglasses brand Sunday Somewhere is definitely my new favorite brands. Available in a variety of cool and quirky style, you be crazy not to invest in a pair. My favorite ones have to be the Matahari, with these bad boys I feel like I’m too cool.
SATCHEL VS BRIEFCASES:
I’m slightly bored of briefcases and much prefer Satchels. Clipper Leather Satchel by Tusting is the perfect satchel. It represents the epitome of style and great British craftsmanship. So it’s not surprising that is one of the brands bestsellers.
DREAM SHOES … SIGH:
There are no words to describe the Mack pony evening shoe by Acne, except spend my time daydreaming adding them to my already ridiculous shoe collection.
MUSIC TO MY EARS:
I wouldn’t expect anything less from Danish brand Bang & Olufsen with their new B & O Play headphones. Stylish, luxurious perfect for on the move use.
