Build on staples for off-duty wardrobe

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Fashion - With Des­mond Eddy

BUILD­ING up a col­lec­tion of re­fined re­laxed staples is not al­ways easy. Fit and fab­ri­ca­tion speak vol­umes. Start with a neu­tral base then layer in rein­vented clas­sics and you are well on your way to cre­at­ing a con­sid­ered off-duty wardrobe, ac­cord­ing to Tren­ery Men.

A chino fits the smart ca­sual brief to a T, and in durable cot­ton twill, it is cut to a modern fit that pairs eas­ily with leather sneak­ers and lace-ups.

The linen shirt, up­dated in cham­bray blue French linen is a week­end es­sen­tial.

This sea­son Coun­try Road takes on a new colour pal­ette. Cre­ate the per­fect out­fit from tai­lored suits, ur­ban jack­ets and con­tem­po­rary shirts to lux­u­ri­ous knitwear, slim stretch chi­nos and denim.

Jack Lon­don’s cloth­ing is in­spired by the Bri­tish and Euro­pean mod rocker scene of the 1960s.

Choose from short suit jack­ets with nar­row lapels and nar­row trousers, anorak parkas, short-collared shirts worn with slim ties, po­los and leather jack­ets, dressed with win­klepicker shoes to achieve the time­less look of the early Rolling Stones, The Knack, Blondie and The Strokes.
