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.

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!

Travelling Lightweight: Lightweight Cashmere

August 9th, 2018 by Simon Jacobs

Packing for a vacation can be a real hassle. The main predicament before going on holiday, especially for an extended time, is knowing how much and what to pack. However, this headache can be prevented when lightweight cashmere is in your suitcase.

Despite its reputation as the finest material in the colder months of the year, cashmere and its unique properties provide an excellent option for a summer getaway. The material is soft, wrinkle-free and lightweight, making it simple and stress-free to travel with. Due to its wrinkle-free qualities, cashmere can be worn immediately upon arrival at the hotel.

In fact, why not travel in cashmere? Due to the density of the fibres being higher than that of wool, the texture leaves a comfortable, itch-free feeling on your skin, ideal for long-haul flights. The diameter of cashmere fibres is exceptionally small, resulting in a naturally breathable texture. In addition, the insulation capacity is 8 times higher than wool, cashmere will keep you warm (but never hot) in heavily air conditioned locations like airports, restaurants or taxis. Put simply, cashmere keeps you cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s not…

Our holiday picks.

The flight out: DEAN – Short sleeve cotton cashmere crew

Dinner at the hotel: NEWMAN – Cashmere basket weave soft grey crew neck.

The flight home: ARLINGTON – Cashmere sweatpants
