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.

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!

Exclusively British Magazine mention

November 14th, 2017 by Simon Jacobs

 

Exclusively British Magazine features the Winter collection from MrQ.

Introducing the Autumn Winter collection, which fits comfortably into any man’s wardrobe. There are pieces to wear at the weekend with jeans or chinos, pieces that look just as good in the office over a crisp white shirt or pieces that fit neatly under a blazer on a night out. The collection is about items that fit well and wear well in a range of blues, greys, shades of black and tactile textured knitwear. These are investment pieces with a hint of detail, so they stand out as classic and edgy, bringing compliments and admiring looks.

As a British brand, it is great to be recognised in Exclusively British Magazine! We are truly proud and honored to be mentioned and admired!

 

MrQ

MrQuintessential was born out of the idea that many things in my wardrobe looked too immature for my years. Many tend to say that men lose interest in fashion as they approach the big 40, however, I strongly disagree, I still want to be stylish and look fantastic. Even though I am far into middle age now, I am too young to be old and am too old to dress in high street clothes, emblazoned with logos and initials. These items are just too risky for a man with grey in his hair.
