The Two Piece

Take on a laid back two piece suit, with a blazer and suit trousers in a flattering slim fit. Style it out with a men's V neck jumper or Oxford shirt, and you’ll be a date to be proud of.

For the ultimate statement, you’ll want a wool suit jacket and trousers for a premium feel in a stylish checked pattern. This is a classic, country gentleman look that will seem just as elegant and stylish whether on a city break or a more rural setting.

To get a classic Best of British look, we recommend a suit by Racing Green – simply pick your check, pick your colour scheme and then take a browse of men’s shirts by Jeff Banks or Ben Sherman.

The Waistcoat

If you’re a dapper gent seeking a classic look for a valentines date, a waistcoat should be an essential component of your dress code.

Men’s waistcoats come in a variety of fits and colour schemes, with everything from checks to plain numbers, and a variety of styles including double breasted and single breasted fastenings.

The great thing about waistcoats is the versatility. You can match them with a three piece suit (see above) or wear them standalone. A lot can be said for a waistcoat, shirt and jeans, which is rapidly becoming as smart an option as the full formal ensemble.

We can’t decide on a recommendation for waistcoats – we just have too many! Take a look at our range and you’re sure to find the perfect waistcoat for the perfect evening.
