Blue Gingham Flower Lapel Pin


The vast majority of people believe looking great involves spending a lot of money, they have a right to think that as it is often very true. However, to say that spending money is the only way to look great is completely false. Accessories are a great way for you to look dapper without actually spending too much money, whether its a collar bar or a lapel pin they work great.

Obviously everyone knows how great pocket squares are but to be fair they are getting old. So if pocket squares are old, what’s new? Flower lapel pins. They come in so many different materials ranging from silk, cotton, chiffon, wood and metal. This accessory is great for adding some colour to your outfit. You can buy them from so many different retailers.

A flower lapel pin is a small flower pin worn on your blazer on the left lapel (close to your heart.) Lapel pins can be ornamental or can indicate wearer’s affiliation with an organization or cause. Flower lapel pins however are used for only two reasons. Real flowers for weddings and cotton flowers for looking dapper.

The Blue Gingham Flower Lapel Pin is made from 100% cotton, costing only £6 and coloured with white and different shades of blue. The great thing about this lapel pin is, due to the colours it is pretty neutral and will go with pretty much all your outfits.

River Island Brown Check Three Piece Suit

River Island Brown Check Three Piece Suit 5

I’ve noticed recently people pretty much wearing the same type of suits with similar colour schemes. Obviously blue, black and grey suits are standard but who wants to look like everyone else. I definitely don’t like it. So I figured today I would bring you something different. Something that doesn’t look like its off the rack, yet still won’t actually break the bank.

This Brown Check Three Piece Suit is from an unusual source for myself, River Island. I’m not the biggest banner holder for River Island but I must admit there suits aren’t too bad. The quality you will get from River Island suits is similar to the suits you would get from Next or Burton.

This three piece suit is quality and for quality you will definitely have to pay a bit more than average. Made from mostly polyester but combined with wool, known as a polyblend suit, this isnt one of those lightweight summer suits. Polyblend suits are incredibly comfortable and do tend to mainly worn in winter but really and truly, we live in the UK, it’s always winter here except in July. So this polyblend suit will cost you £135 for the suit and an extra £40 for the waistcoat. Whether you choose to go for the two-piece or go all out with the three-piece, you definitely won’t regret it.

The whole suit has this beautiful brown checked design, which really makes the suit look and feel vintage. That vintage look just gives off this persona about it’s wearer as being a man of absolute class. If you are going to wear the suit on a weekend, please don’t wear the trousers, the blazer by itself is perfect for the weekend. The full suit with waistcoat is perfect for formal events, while the two piece is great for everyday work.

You really can’t go wrong with this River Island Brown Check Three Piece Suit
