Henry Prince of Wales Sportcoat
The blazer: Henry Prince of Wales Sportcoat in Grey Pattern
Pair your blazer with matching trousers, such as these Flat Front Prince of Wales trousers to create a suit. This then creates a neutral colour palette that you can build upon with coloured shirts and ties. We have chosen the Classique-Fit Fil a Fil shirt in Sky, and the Birdseye Weave Silk Tie in Blue Pattern. Finish your work outfit with smart accessories like these Richelieu Dress Shoes, and a matching belt like this Polished Leather Belt in Black.
Create a relaxed look at the weekend by wearing your blazer with our new Façonnable jeans. Try a darker colour like these Classic Brut 5 Pocket Jeans in Dark Stone Wash and wear with a casual top such as the Classique-Fit Long Sleeve Tee in Blue. Accessorise the outfit with the Embossed Leather Belt, and finish with the Canvas and Suede Sneaker in Olive. The blazer will not only smarten the outfit, but will be a stylish alternative to a coat during the colder months.
Dining out with friends
Whether it’s a smart or relaxed affair, the blazer is a versatile answer for both occasions. Team it with these Classic 5 Pocket Chinos in Blue and wear with a shirt like this Classique-Fit Multi Stripe Poplin in Navy Blue Pattern. Alternatively you could wear a polo shirt like this Classique Fit Piqué Polo in Baby Blue for a more casual look. Complete the look with these Wing Tip Boots in Brown.
A day out
For a laid-back day out with friends or family, wear your blazer with these Flat Front ‘Milleraies’ Corduroy trousers in Blue as an alternative to jeans. Then add a basic t-shirt like this Classique-Fit Long Sleeve Polo in Antique Grey, and layer the Merino V-Neck in Blue over the top. Co-ordinate your accessories with the Stitched Suede Belt and the Suede Derby Boots to liven up the dark colour palette.
An evening out
If you want a smart outfit for the evening that won’t be the same as wearing your work suit, try teaming the blazer with these Flat Front Gabardine Trousers in Midnight. Wearing smart shoes like these Richelieu Wing Tip Shoes will create a more formal feel to the outfit, but the Classique-Fit Jersey Tee in White will create a relaxed look. Also try layering the outfit by wearing the Cashmere Half-Zip in Faded Charcoal with the buttons done up. Accessorise this with the Distressed Leather Belt to match your shoes.
