The Big Night Out

Men's Health (UK) - - M H P Romot I O N -

While it’s nat­u­ral to want to dress up a lit­tle for an evening on the tiles, whether it’s a spe­cial oc­ca­sion like a birth­day or an an­niver­sary, don’t be tempted to go full-blown TOWIE. These are more re­laxed times: “There’s al­ways a place for a touch of tai­lor­ing,” says Ar­den, how­ever, turn­ing up like Conor Mcgre­gor at a fight night press con­fer­ence is def­i­nitely not the way to go.

To walk the line, think more about pair­ing an un­struc­tured sports jacket with a soft drape and reg­u­lar cut, flat-fronted trousers.

Hitch­cock also ad­vises avoid­ing tra­di­tional busi­ness colours, opt­ing in­stead for tans, browns, or brighter/ lighter shades of blue. The weight of fab­ric is im­por­tant here, too: you want some­thing that is heavy enough to hold its shape and not crease eas­ily (vi­tal should the night turn into day) and yet light enough to breath – you’re out for a good time, af­ter all.

“Ton­ics and mo­hairs are best for jack­ets, with flan­nels and gabar­dines for trousers,” says Hitch­cock. “But if you take your noc­tur­nal ac­tiv­i­ties se­ri­ously and want to in­ves­ti­gate be­spoke op­tions, 12 or 13oz cloths tend to work well all year round in the Bri­tish cli­mate.”
