SS15 Double Denim Menswear Trend Lookbook

Published by Donna Coppack on

It’s starting to feel like Spring, the days have gotten warmer (I even went out without a coat yesterday, but then I am Northern) I have already ordered a few bits to update my wardrobe for spring, Hello new bag and possible blazer!

If your Husband is anything like mine, then his wardrobe is a chaotic mix of things he has bought himself on a whim, and then the rest of the useful workhorse items that I buy (or badger him into buying) so that the disparate parts can come together.  I think we had both agreed it was time for a few new additions to spice things up.

Looking at the Spring/Summer Catwalk collection the double denim look seems to be very much the look of the season.  Some of the looks are almost wearable, amazing, I know! Prada, Ralph Lauren and the design god that is Tom Ford, all sent models down the catwalk doused in serious does of denim.

In an attempt to reinvigorate my beloved wardrobe we looked to House of Fraser as they are always a good choice for fashion led pieces that can actually be worn in real life.  One of the in-house brands they stock is Barbour, who not only create the eponymous waxed jackets, they also create a range of biker clothes.  

This thick cotton blue/grey shirt* is inspired by Steve McQueen, AKA The King of Effortless Cool. It is ridiculously versatile . It can worn with a jumper and peacoat while the weather is still cold and then swapped into a daytime city break look for Spring and also as a going out shirt in Summer.  It gives the double denim look but for those who are less adventurous than others.

Shirt – Barbour £70
T-shirt – boring plain one
Paul works in the city so classic good taste is pretty much expected, it’s hardly fashion forward in London’s Square Mile. He turned 40 last year so quality and wearability are very important to his style. I think the general aim is “Stealth Wealth” though the actual result varies greatly 🙂
Shirt – Barbour £70
Coat – Penguin – similar here £210
Jumper – Blend – similar here £28
Jacket – Gieves & Hawkes £595
Jeans – Firetrap down to £50 from £90
City Break – This is the kind of outfit he would wear when we get the occasional break away.
Shirt – Barbour £70
Bag – Storm £40
Jacket – Gieves & Hawkes £595
Watch – Omega De Ville (more money than sense)
I like the city break look the best, I’m so pleased the shirt goes with his man bag as I encouraged him to buy after getting sick of being stuck with the heavy camera in my handbag every time we went out for the day.  Overall this is a great shirt, that I am hoping Paul will make use of this weekend when we go out for my Birthday. The fabric of the shirt is fantastic, it’s cotton, but quite thick so it’s very flattering and the cut is great too, it’s slim around the waist and tighter on the arms.
What do you think, what looks would you like to see on your man? Keep it clean Ladies.
