“In a world full of trends I want to remain classic” Iman
You’ve seen this man before, he is sophisticated, understated and always elegant, he looks ready to go to a business meeting in jeans and a t-shirt because his minimalist style always looks dressed up with somewhere to go.
“Always dress well but keep it simple” Jared Tomas
His classic style is fuss free, universal, tailored and has a simple sophistication, but above all it is timeless. The classic pieces in his wardrobe will be kept for years on end without ever going out of style, but then were they ever really “in style”. A man with classic style means he will always step out looking fresh, sharp and pressed, but at the same time a perfectly worn old leather jacket looks smart on him when paired with some crisp jeans. This man’s personality is reflected in his fashion; he is considered, organised and confident which means he always looks effortlessly coordinated, minimalist, clean and bold.
“Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance” Coco Chanel
Superior fabrics, immaculate construction, traditional neutrals, clean lines and modest cuts are all his best friends. Forget garish colour palettes and fussy design, to perfect the classic style his focus is very much on quality over quantity. Quality materials, structure and design are what he looks for and his pieces are timeless and the sturdy composition means they will last for years to come. There’s a reason the fast fashion movement we have seen emerge over the last few decades is considered “throw away” and this is because more often than not the items are made in inferior fabrics with careless structures.
"Fashion fades, style is eternal” Yves Saint Lauren
So spending a little more on a few luxury pieces will not bother this man, he is a perfectionist and would be uncomfortable in miss matching clothes, poorly sewn seams, ill-fitting tailoring or inadequate materials. His wardrobe mirrors his deliberate demeanour, his outfit will have been carefully put together, and to turn up in anything that is less than perfect would not reflect his careful character. We all know how much we are judged on what we wear and this man will contemplate this every day when he gets dressed, and because of this he will be taken more seriously, be more respected and he will succeed in what he does.
“A true classic never goes out of style” Chucky
The good news is that to achieve this look you don’t need to buy a lot; some core pieces like a good pair of jeans, a clean white t-shirt (always well ironed), some smart/casual trainers and a classic holdall like our Vintage Child "Oxley" Leather Weekend Bag will do the trick. Less is definitely more for chic, minimalist style and you can let the details do the talking. Expertly designed wardrobe pieces will always be extremely considerately designed, maybe you won’t even notice all the small but expertly placed stitches when you first look at your shirt/shoes/bag but these are the things that will set your style apart.
