Tap into the season’s relaxed approach to tailoring with denim, chinos and sneakers (yes, sneakers)...

From unlined suits to soft-shouldered blazers, this season’s tailoring nods to all things relaxed, informal and laid-back. Want to wear a suit with sneakers and a sweater? No problem. Fancy wearing a blue sports jacket with beige chinos? Go for it. Not only has the elusive ‘smart/casual’ dress code finally been solved, but (bonus) tailoring has never been lighter, cooler or more wearable. It’s time to play by the new relaxed rules...

Mix & Match

This season it’s all about liberating your suit jacket from its matching trousers ‒ don’t think of it as breaking up, but taking a break. Try teaming our lightweight Micro Puppytooth Suit jacket with a pair of casual chinos ‒ rolled at the hem ‒ and a buttoned-up shirt for dress-down Fridays or informal summer events. To tie or not to tie? If you’re not at work or a wedding, we say leave it behind.

Just add Jeans

Or, denim for that matter. Selvedge jeans or a chambray shirt are a great way to dress down a blazer or jacket ‒ plus, the blazer-jean-shirt combination, when done correctly, is the ultimate smart/casual outfit. For summer, swap dark colours for lighter shades: pale grey, coral or (our personal favourite) champagne. Unlined, unstructured and tailored from Italian cloth, our Wool/Linen Jacket gets our vote.

Wear Sneakers

A few seasons ago sneakers and suits would have been seen as mad, outrageous and downright wrong. But, as fashion’s love for the slim suit and white sneaker have grown simultaneously, it was only a matter of time before a clever stylist put the two together. The key to getting it right? Choose a well-cut suit in navy or blue ‒ our Slim Oxford suit is a great example ‒ and add a crew neck tee or sweater.
