Evening Wear

November 3rd 2017

According to research, the average British man wastes a staggering 2.5 days a year deciding what to wear. With mounting pressure to look the part on special occasions, the challenge to get your seasonal menswear look right, is sure to increase this party season.  So, whether you’re attending a special work’s do, a Black Tie Ball or a Christmas party (or indeed all 3 if you’re very lucky), take inspiration from our evening wear looks. Ensure you spend your time socialising and having fun, not staring despairingly at your wardrobe.

“All it takes are a few simple outfits. And there’s one secret – The Simpler The Better”
