From The Office To A Night Out

March 13th, 2020 by Simon Jacobs

Looking sharp in the office is one thing but looking the part on a night out is a whole other ball game. The very best of us can seamlessly transition from one environment to another, even without the luxury of freshening ourselves up at home in between.

So, how does one prepare for a day at the office followed by a night on the town? Likely, this will be a Friday scenario, so the atmosphere should be nice and laidback with everyone in the office fully prepared for the weekend. We’ve heard of ‘Dress Down Fridays’, but we are the kind that doesn’t view it as dressing down but, instead, dressing flexibly.

When fashion, business and leisure intertwine into one outfit, you are ready to seize the day.

Cascade Silk and Cashmere Polo Shirt

In the pursuit of mastering the smart-casual ensemble, this smart cashmere polo shirt makes for an ideal non-heavy fashion piece that you can wear to the office without looking underdressed, as well as out for drinks not looking at all overdressed. Of course, you also have the option of wearing this underneath a jumper with the collar folded over the neck of the piece (more on this later).

Luxurious and with an equally as fine fit, this is a piece for the gentleman that wants to project an easy-going, yet successful, vibe about his person. Perfectly refined for the man about town.

Regent Cashmere Polo Shirt

Made from the finest cashmere material, this beautifully made polo shirt is a fantastic alternative to the aforementioned option. Providing you with the same smart-casual vibe, this shirt also offers the wearer the versatility of wearing the piece in a variety of formal and non-formal environments without looking the slightest bit out of place. Arguably, this is the ultimate piece of luxury fashion.

The shirt is at its best when paired with either dark jeans or chinos, truly giving off that working holiday vibe. If you want to turn the heads of both your work colleagues, the person in the street or your friends at the club, this piece is simply a must-have for your wardrobe.

Pitt Silk V-Neck Jumper

We are finally coming out the other side of winter but, as we know all too well in Britain, the spring also brings a chill in the air, particularly during the evening when the sun has gone down. You don’t want to be caught short wearing a simple shirt and blazer combination that, while it may look good, simply isn’t providing you with the level of warmth of that you desire.

Adding this beautiful Pitt silk v-neck jumper is a piece that keeps you warm, comfortable and, most importantly of all, looking stylish. This is a look that football fans would associate with tactical genius and fashionista Pep Guardiola, who famously dons a similar jumper on the touchline. Its luxurious handle and finish make this a highly popular piece for any man’s ensemble.

How To Travel In Style And Comfort

March 3rd, 2020 by Simon Jacobs

It is no secret that the man about town is no stranger to travelling from place to place, both for work and pleasure. Whether your mode of transport consists of sitting in the back of a Hackney Carriage for 10 minutes, an hour or two sat on the train or a long-haul flight across the Atlantic Ocean, you need to find the correct balance of comfort and style.

 

While you don’t want to be stuck in rigid office wear on a long journey, any man worth his salt also knows that resorting to tracksuits is strictly out of bounds. You never know who you might bump into and when a networking opportunity might present itself, so make sure your appearance doesn’t resemble that of a man heading to the gym.

 

Cooper Cashmere Blend Zip-Up and Matching Sweatpants

 

Tracksuits are a no, however, this doesn’t mean that you can’t still opt for something more comfortable than suit trousers or jeans when all you want to do is sit back and relax as much as you can. Striking the perfect balance between style and comfort is the combination of the Cooper Cashmere Blend Zip-Up top and matching Squaw Cashmere Blend Sweat Pants.

 

This is the perfect ensemble to step onto a long-haul flight with, especially if you are planning on catching 40 winks. Comfortable enough to sit in yet designed to upkeep your sense of style, the zip-up jacket is made from a blend of extra fine merino wool and super soft cashmere makes for a comfortable yet versatile piece. Added to the matching sweatpants, cut for optimum comfort and a relaxed silhouette, you will also find an elastic waistband that can be easily adjusted for the perfect fit.

 

Carnaby Cashmere Zip-Up Track Jacket and Portobello Sweatpants

 

Keeping with the relaxed look and feel of the zip-up jacket and sweat pants, also available from the Mr Quintessential website is the combination of a Carnaby Cashmere Zip-Up Track Jacket and Portobello Pure Cashmere Sweat Pants. The ultimate in luxury travel fashion, this will keep you feeling cool, comfortable and stylish on even the longest of journeys. Whether you are travelling for business or pleasure, the ensemble made from only the highest quality cashmere material makes for practical fashion items.

 

Easy to wear pieces make for the best means of travelling in comfort and style, which can also be transformed by what they are worn with. The Carnaby jacket paired with sweatpants makes for a casual and stylish set while when worn with a pair of jeans, it transforms into an ideal smart-casual outfit ideal for going out for drinks with friends after work or, alternatively, walking the dog through the fields. Ideal for keeping you warm on crisp mornings or chilly evenings.

 

By wearing versatile fashion items that don’t look out of place when matched with more formal wear, this will help you to travel comfortably and reduce your luggage. Mr Quintessential is on hand to keep you looking and feeling your best, wherever in the world you are headed to.

It just looks the part and can be worn as part of either a formal or casual outfit, making this piece an essential for the man that enjoys a drink or two after work on a Friday afternoon.

 

Soft and tactile, this sweater (pictured here in beige but also available in claret) is both light enough to wear comfortably indoors, whilst also providing enough of a barrier against the spring chill.

Fashion in Your Fifties: The Guide for the Silver Fox

November 29th, 2019 by Simon Jacobs

When you stumble across this blog post, chances are, you are looking to restyle your fashion in your fifties as the handsome silver fox that you are! Going gray is to be embraced. It is a badge of dotage we all wish to wear. It is okay to miss that dark chocolate, auburn hair colour you had. You might even contemplate dyeing your hair. But let us take you on a journey of fabulous fashion to introduce you to the next stage of your life.

The Guide for the Silver Fox

Color Scheme

The color scheme will act as a guard and note necessarily and ban from wearing certain colors. We will break it down to seasons to simplify it. Since we are in the winter season, it is only right that we start with it.

In winter, the cooler tones of colours are noticeable to the eye. Over time, this makes your surroundings appear dull. This is the best time to wear colours with warm undertones. Seeing warmer undertones will automatically make you feel warmer. Canyon Cashmere Crew Neck Sweater – ClaretVail – Tonal Cashmere Cable Knit Crew Neck Sweater

During springtime, you can wear neutral undertones like Mayfair – Luxury Cashmere Roll Neck Sweater – Charcoal Grey

Remember, this is simply a guideline. Once you find your footing you will learn what learns, and what doesn’t.

Silhouette

This will be giving you guidelines–a foundation as to how to dress your silhouette. Jackets, blazers, vests, dress pants, shoes and other accessories are the foundation of your wardrobe. When it comes to dress shirts, it is best to go for a white shirt with a crisp collar. There is something so timeless and effortless about a crisp white shirt, be the sleeves rolled up or cuffed. It also brings any look together, perfectly.

Embrace the signs of your dotage in those silver locks. It is a gift and this, is our gift, to you: Fashion in Your Fifties!

Our Guide To Men’s Crew Neck Sweaters For You—Mr. Quintessential

September 29th, 2019 by Simon Jacobs

Crew neck sweaters are one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you could ever own. Why? Because you can dress it with literally anything!

Our Guide To Men’s Crew Neck Sweaters For You—Mr. Quintessential

WITH A SHIRT

The most common way of styling a crew neck sweater is wearing it over a slim fit shirt. This is great for business casual outfits for the day-to-day office worker. It can be likened to the preppy silhouette and is timeless. Throw on a nice suit jacket for a more professional outfit.

SUIT/BLAZER

For those days when you want to take a break from the bottom-up shirts, a crew neck sweater is the best option. It is so much more flexible than a shirt worn under a suit jacket.

DENIM

Are you going out to lunch with your mates or running a quick errand? A crew neck sweater paired with denim jeans is a very trendy outfit. It gives you a very casual, relaxed look without feeling shabby.

LEATHER JACKET

For a more retro look, get yourself a high-quality leather jacket for those cold days. Especially if you ride a motorbike to work, it is easy to go from Rough Rider to a professional worker in 2.5secs when you work in the office.

SNEAKERS

Pick your favourite pair of trainers, throw on a crew neck, and GO! It is that simple. If you are a uni student, this is one of the easiest outfits to throw together when running late for class.

FORMAL

This is a more risque take: wearing a crew neck sweater on the red carpet. Some celebs have done it and it has been the talk of the town since then. It is different. It is edgy and will definitely make you stand out from the crowd.

Mr. Quintessential offers quality cashmere crew neck sweaters in different colours to suit your varying taste. Why not pick a few to add to your wardrobe? You won’t regret the purchase.

Men’s Cashmere Scarf: 3 Ways To Tie And Wear Them

September 27th, 2019 by Simon Jacobs

Wearing men’s cashmere scarf adds a level of elegance to a whole outfit no matter how casual. So, to make it fun and different, we bring you three different ways to tie and wear scarves.

Men’s Cashmere Scarf: 3 Ways To Tie And Wear Them

Men have been wearing scarfs for the longest time. Whether it is chunky knitted scarfs to protect against the cold or a silk scarf is thrown over your neck, scarfs are a staple in all men’s wardrobe. There is a wonderful history of men wearing scarves from antiquity.

  1. The Drape

This is the most common way of styling a scarf because it is the easiest to do. Here is how you do it:

As you would when tying a necktie, place the scarf around your neck in such a way that, the left side and the right side are even. Then wear your jacket over the scarf as it lays tucked in close to your shirt or cashmere sweater or with your jacket unbuttoned to showcase the star of the outfit: the cashmere scarf. This style is best when going to work since you’ll be taking your jacket off to show off the scarf. This way of wearing men’s cashmere scarf looks classy—endless sophistication!

  1. Overhand Knot

This next way of tying wearing a scarf will better secure your scarf if you’ll be doing a lot running errands. Place the cashmere scarf around your neck with the ends hanging down on the chest. Make the right piece longer than the left and wrap it around the left piece to create a loose knot. Then as you would when tying a necktie, adjust the knot till it comes directly under your chin. This will keep warm throughout your time outdoors. Style it with a nice long dressy jacket.

 

  1. The Parisian

The Parisian style is true to its name. With this style of tying a men’s cashmere scarf, fold the scarf in two, equally. Then place the folded scarf around your neck so the loop is on your right side. Then feed the left side through the right side and pull. You can wear it loose if it is a very long scarf or bring the knot up higher to your neck if it is shorter. Lighter scarfs will work better with this style as chunky ones are best for the drape method.

 

Here at Mr. Quintessential, we offer you the of cashmere products, including men’s cashmere scarf. Contact us today for more details.

Men’s Cashmere: Why Every Man Should Wear Them

September 23rd, 2019 by Simon Jacobs

There’s a list of items that every gentleman must own. You probably know the popular ones like suits, plain t-shirts, plain shirts, wrist watches and etc. But another must have item that you perhaps don’t know about is men’s cashmere. Every man should own cashmere and in at least five different forms.

While on the topic of men’s cashmere, it is important that you learn why it is important that you own one.

  1. Comfort

It’s good to look good but what’s more important than looking good is to be comfortable while you’re at it. Everyone loves the way wool feels on the skin. What if we told you that cashmere wool is lighter than sheep’s wool? Amazing right? This would mean that it is more comfortable to wear because of its lightweight and thin structure.

  1. Cashmere Sweaters Don’t Wrinkle

It can get pretty frustrating to put your clothes in your luggage and when you unfold them you realize that they’re wrinkled and would need ironing. Well, the good news is that with a cashmere sweater, you stuff it in your luggage, you can put it in your drawer, fold it, and regardless of whatever you do it, it always comes out looking as good as new. It’s perfect to take for travelling: lightweight and doesn’t wrinkle.

  1. They Last Longer

Cashmere sweaters will always look as good as new because they are made from higher quality material, which has longer strength, which is why cashmere sweaters are more expensive than average wool sweaters.

  1. It Makes You Favourite With The Ladies

Naturally, women love materials that are soft and skin-friendly. So, when women give you a hug or brush against your cashmere outfit, they already have something they like about you. In a case where it’s a first date, it already gives you a lot to talk about. Also, this tells the woman that you have style and good taste.

Mr. Quintessential is here to provide you with all the best men’s cashmere you need for your wardrobe. Visit our store here and/or contact us for more information.
