Tailoring has gone through somewhat of a transformation over the past few years and although still smart and sharp, there’s more of a relaxed vibe about it. Elements of athleisure wear are creeping in so if you’re attached to your hoodie and trainers it’s not a problem, just add suit trousers and an overcoat to smarten up your look. The good thing about menswear is that women can also take inspiration from it and put together a ‘borrowed from the boys’ style outfit. I’ve put together a collage inspired by the Farfetch Modern Tailoring editorial and fashion edit, specifically the ‘Grey: The most versatile colour?’ story as the colour encompasses both classic tailoring and modern sporty styles.
Suit: Lanvin £1,276.24, Wool hat: Comme Des Garcons Shirt Boy £134.92, Heath Glasses: Oliver Peoples £287.16, Hoodie: A.P.C £123.06, Rockefeller backpack: Valas £2,852.86 Overcoat: E. Tautz £2,970, Trousers: Kenzo £237.01
The modern man can mix and match these items to create a variety of looks. The two piece suit is pretty versatile and can be dressed down with the cap and backpack or the hoodie. I’ve added everything to the wishlist for my dream wardrobe for my boyfriend. Maybe one day he’ll let me be his personal shopper!
Each of these pieces (except maybe the glasses) feature in the modern tailoring edit so if you want to spoil your man or are a male reader and want to treat yourself then head here for these items alongside other dapper picks
