Get The Look – #7 Tinie Colours Of Spring

Tinie tempah spring fashion colours

Tinie Tempah is well known to us for his many talents and recently he has become a bit of a fashion icon in London, for good reason too. He is very well dressed and is never afraid to express himself in his outfits and wear things others probably wouldn’t. This weeks Get The Look is one of Tinie Tempah’s more simpler outfits but still lets people know what he’s about. If you’re looking to dress casually smart on the weekend, this outfit and it’s many variations will serve you well.

The Look – Tinie Tempah

Considering we are well into spring now and approaching summer it just makes sense that we start adding more colour to our outfits. The colours of spring are warm, bright and light. What this look does extremely well is take all those spring colours and turn them into a pretty decent outfit without looking like a toddler wearing flowers.

The blazer, the main piece of the outfit, is a warm salmon colour. The spring colour scheme continues from the blazer onto the pastel jade trousers, combined with brown suede tassel loafers. The outfit is completed with a darker tie, white shirt, lapel pins and a watch.get the look cover tinie tempah 2

The Suit

You have a few options in the suit department in regards to which colours you want to work with. With the blazer you can go with MOST of the different colours in the spring colour palette shown below (avoid the dark colours.) The only rule you need to follow is that to you should either wear matching trousers or trousers that are lighter than the blazer. I recommend pastel teal trousers like the ones Tinie’s wearing or plain white ones.

In terms of material then I would go with Linen or Cotton. Both these fabrics are fantastic for summer and letting your skin breathe. You don’t want to be walking around in a wool blazer sweating all over the place. Choose how thick you want the clothes to be as well. Even though it’s now Spring, it still can be bloody cold here in the UK.

Shirt & Tie

This part of the outfit is basic, you can swap these for anything really. It’s really easy to just stick to white shirt and any dark tie. The dark tie works really well as a balancing act between looking super summery and looking smart. The only important point to make is that you should keep your tie skinny. Thick ties don’t go well with the casual looks and will result in you looking quite odd – keep your tie thin.

Loafers

Loafers – don’t we just love them? Tinie Tempah certainly does, he’s always seen in these funky cool loafers. The loafers in this look are a dark chocolate brown suede completed with small tassells. Loafers are easy to find online but it’s important you decide whether you want to wear casual loafers or work/smart loafers. Suede is quite versatile and depending on how you wear it and what you wear it with, for example with or without socks, you can really swing your suede shoes from work-smart to smart-casual very quickly.

Accessories

If accessories aren’t your thing, don’t worry the outfit won’t fall apart without them. However, if like me, you love accessories, then you’re in for a treat with this outfit. Firstly the watch; any watch will do but ideally you want to match your watch to your shoes. Your belt should also follow suit with the watch strap and shoes, all dark brown will go perfectly with this outfit. The lapel pins are can be what ever you want really, I’d probably wear one of my charity badges on my lapel.

That’s it, you and Tinie are now identical twins. As always let me know what your thoughts are on this look from the wonderful Tinie Tempah. Leave a rating up top on how many stars out of five you would give this outfit.

The Weekend Look – Jeans & Chino’s

difference-between-jeans-and-chinos2

Me and a suit are never far away from each other, I love wearing my suits on the weekend but as men we need different outfits. I only wear three outfits, gym, smart and smart/casual. My gym outfit is really basic – A Superdry hoody, tracksuit bottoms and Nike Roshe trainers. My smart outfits are what I wear to work pretty much everyday, all the suits and shirts I write posts about daily.

Smart/casual is one that I actually don’t wear too often but strangely enough is probably my favourite type of outfit. The smart/casual look is perfect for all those occasions when you know no one else will be wearing a suit or you just want to be a bit more comfortable for the day. There are so many different options when going for a quality smart outfit, you can really add and mix up the outfit every single time you get dressed. The two main variables that are most important in your outfit are not what’s on top, it is what you wear around your legs.

Jeans Or Chinos

Choosing which one to wear is entirely down to personal preference, I personally prefer to wear jeans during colder weather and chinos during the warmer weather. Jeans are reliable, they last a lifetime and as long as you don’t gain or lose too much weight – it’s worth spending more money on quality jeans.

Chinos are fantastic for going out in the heat, you won’t get sweaty in them and your legs will be able to breathe nicely. They look great with a blazer and a shirt, while also fitting well with just a plain white t shirt. You can get chino’s for pretty cheap, however they won’t last you as long as jeans and lose their colour a lot quicker as well.

Levi’s

Whether you want to wear chinos or jeans, it really doesn’t matter, what should matter is the brand you wear. Levi’s are known all around the world for one thing – quality. Everyone loves levi’s, they last a long time, they look great and won’t look washed out. Levi’s aren’t expensive, you can get most for like £50-£80. If you don’t already own a pair of both chinos & jeans that look and feel amazing, then you need some Levi’s.

I picked out two from mainlinemenswear.co.uk, have a look;

Two Moss Bros Chinos For £30

So not all of us wear suits to work, I know some of you actually don’t dress smart at all for work. So I figured I’d do a post for you. Whether you wear suits to work or you dress smart/casual or just casual then chinos are absolutely fantastic for that look. Chinos go perfectly with a tucked in shirt and no tie, a polo shirt or a normal crew neck t-shirt. Which ever way you want to wear them, go for it.

Moss Bros are normally known for their quality in suit tailoring but they do make a few mean pairs of chinos. There currently is a sale on, two for £30 or one pair for £20.

These Moss London Slim Fit Chinos are pure cotton and feature side slant pockets, a ticket pocket, two back pockets and a stripe lining. They are available in a variety of different colours for you to pick from. My personal favourites are the dark red chinos.

Enjoy & let me know how you will wear them.

GANT Review – Menswear

My GANT review is a difficult one, it is an absolutely amazing store, the products are of top quality, but they are definitely expensive. GANT is a luxury clothing brand of American heritage launched in 1949. You can buy GANT clothing from the many signature GANT stores around the world or from different outlets like John Lewis. They sell clothing for men, women, boys, girls and babies.

GANT is one of those stores that I just admire, I feel great in the store and I feel even better walking around the shopping center with a GANT shopping bag. The quality of GANT is amazing, all you have to do is select one of the links below. When you wear a shirt from GANT you can really feel the difference. I would recommend pretty much everything from this store, it is an absolute top quality store that really goes above and beyond most stores.

Cost wise, it is up there as one of the most expensive stores around. The average shirt price is around £80, which is obviously more than we are used to paying. However, with the price in mind, I still very much recommend them.

Hopefully my GANT review helped you get a bit more of an understanding of GANT. If you’re considering purchasing something from GANT, it will set you back quite a bit of money, but it will last, I can guarantee you that.
