The suit has to be your staple. But not at any price. Make sure it fits you like a glove as if it were tailored for you on Savile Row: without wrinkles and without pulling. The shirt that goes with it should only extend a finger-width beyond the jacket and a pocket handkerchief is always a nice touch.
Pay attention to every detail, even your socks. Yes, those garments down there that you think nobody will notice. A tiny error can crumble your distinguished appearance. Escape from the black socks you buy in packs of five and take a chance on something a little different. If you don’t want to go too far, stick with a dark colour palette, but try burgundy or dark blue tones. If those don’t catch your fancy, go for something a little more colourful with the mustard or orangey red tones you’ll find at Punto Blanco.
The British fashion houses are, without a doubt, a great ally. Hackett breathes this style in everything from its logo – two umbrellas and a bowler hat – to its impeccable designs. But the Americans aren’t short on gallantry either; just ask Brooks Brothers, with over 200 years of elegance and tradition. And closer to home, but with a markedly British style, we’ve got Bow-tie, a brand whose high-fashion shoes you can’t help but follow.
