Adjusting to real life after the heady days of the festive season can be a bleak business. Ease back into the work regime and avoid crashing back to earth with the full force of a doomed Apollo mission by rejuvenating your working wardrobe.
There’s something to be said for the old truism that if you look good, you feel good. It helps to get out the newspaper, your collection of little tins and your duo of bristle brushes, then polish your shoes until they shine like the sun that you vaguely remember from the summer months. But sometimes that’s just not enough to raise the spirits and cut the work wear mustard.
At times like these a well-placed purchase or two can revitalize your existing office look. No need to spring for a brand new suit, this is all about the little things and how you wear them.
These elegant, narrow brogues bring new life to an established hard working, everyday suit and look especially stylish with a slimline cut.
These magnificent cufflinks are paired down elegance at it’s best. Wear with a paper white shirt, dark textured tie and well cut dark suit for crisp, monochromatic, simplicity of the Tom Ford sort.
Whilst on the subject of monochromatic simplicity, renew your collection of snowy white shirts, which may well have become more of a slushy grey pile. This 100% cotton classic by Seidensticker is an unbeatable choice, available in collar sizes to 18”.
Given that January has been so mild a full-length overcoat would be overkill, this cashmere rich, single breasted, knee length coat is the perfect solution for the grey, damp days that prevail in winter 2013 (see also full size leader image).
Even in a paperless world, the odd important document needs to be taken to meetings – avoid a confidentially breach of Thick of It proportions with this kudus enriching crushed leather folder.
