A Guide to Sartorial Pairings
It’s not always as easy as it sounds to throw together a successful ensemble. The Hawes & Curtis Times has curated four timeless pairings which will guarantee sartorial success.
Leather Jacket + Fine Knit Cashmere Jumper
Immaculately tailored from pure leather, our iconic Biker jacket can be worn season after season, for years to come. Although it can easily be dressed down with jeans and a T-shirt, this jacket works best with a fine knit cashmere-blend jumper. Not only will you tackle the tricky in-between weather in style, cashmere will emphasise the luxurious nature of the jacket.
Chinos + Suede Derby Shoes
Relaxed yet refined, chinos and derby shoes are perfect partners. The reason they work so well together is because both have minimalist designs and are made with comfort in mind. This smart/ casual combination is extremely versatile and can be worn whether you’re at the office or off-duty.
Camel Overcoat + Silk Burgundy Scarf
A camel overcoat is a contemporary staple. As autumn fades into winter, this earthy shade is one of the easiest colours to incorporate into your wardrobe. Warmer than beige but softer than brown, it is eternally stylish and sophisticated. Nothing complements a camel overcoat better than a silk burgundy scarf. These rich shades are a sartorial marriage made in heaven.
A blazer paired with an Oxford shirt will give a casual twist to classic tailoring. Throw on a blazer and it will instantly smarten up any ensemble, whilst an Oxford shirt’s soft, washed cotton texture and button down collar exudes leisurely style. This timeless combination strikes a fine balance between relaxed and polished, taking you from brunch to a gastropub lunch in style.
