Style – Men’s Polo Shirts on a budget

By Stefano on June 6th, 2013

Round about now I go on a mad search in my wardrobe for my collection of Fred Perry’s. When that search proves fruitless I normally treat myself to a polo shirt or two, one from here or here and another cheapo from a High Street store.

If that’s you cunning plan too, here is a round up of some of the best High Street polos.

We looked at some wonderful summer jackets yesterday featuring labels like Rene Gurskov and Moncler but for the more budget conscious among you here is a pick of summer jackets from the high street.

At the high end of the market Dexter Wong‘s cropped trench for Topshop is £80 which gets you smart tailoring and an unconventional shape. Burton‘s coated jacket is reduced to £25 and has a wonderfully masculine silhouette. K-Ways were the in thing when I was at school, and they’re back with collaborations from A.P.C and Limoland. This classic version is just £45 and the punchy yellow will team up a treat with smart grey trousers. Even cheaper is Uniqlo‘s windbreaker with a neon lining, combining functionality with good looks it’s only £19.99

When your own boss writes that he wants to burn his stripy scarf it’s time to write a definite guide to scarves.
We featured a stripy scarf pick way back in November but we need to go back to basics. The obvious purpose of a scarf is to keep your neck warm, but sartorially speaking a scarf has a multitude of uses, jump through for our guide to the scarf, and burn that stripy scarf!

Stripy scarves must die!

Stripe scarves are starting to become so ubiquitous that they’re joining Taz socks and Homer Simpson ties in the naffness leagues, not any old stripe scarf though, it’s the fine stripe stretchy knit scarf with usually comes in a burgundy melange of colours and has fringing on the ends.

Originated by Paul Smith who tried to update the wool school scarf (which is still a glorious accessory despite the association) and then copied by every high street retailer going, this is the one item that everyone seemed to get for Christmas if they didn’t already own it. Pick a tube carriage at random and you can bet at least ten men have got one of these scarves round their neck. No more please!

Stick around to see our alternatives to the stripy scarf tomorrow and jump through to find out who the culprits are. Are you a proud owner of a stripy scarf and can’t see what the fuss is about? Let me know on our Facebook Blog page.

Go for a dress shirt at the Burton sale

By admin on November 4th, 2008

burton dress shirt pleat bib bow silk sale.jpgBurton’s sale is now on and they’ve got lots of great reductions including houndstooth waistcoats, the limited edition Ben Sherman overcoats and a good selection of knitwear.

Top of my list however is this bib front dress shirt, it might seem a bit frivolous but how often can you get a shirt like that complete with silk knots and bow for £12?!

Snap up this sale bargain and wear it on an everyday occasion with grey trousers and a burgundy cardigan for a smart outfit with a dash of style.

Burton stone cotton shorts

By admin on June 5th, 2008

burton shorts tailored.jpgIn my continuing mission to get the men of Britain into short shorts I’ve found a great pair which combines the tailoring of a high-fashion pair of short shorts with good wearability and even better price.

These cotton shorts are only £25 from Burton, they have a great shape but the lightness of the fabric gives it a more relaxed feel.

Team with brightly coloured deck shoes and an acid pastel polo for a sarcastic Sloane look, or if you’re in a more sincere mood wear with a fine gauge shirt with rolled up sleeves and canvas lace ups.

Red marl cardigan from Burton

By admin on April 18th, 2008

burton red marl cardigan.JPGWhile we’re waiting to crack out the summer garms one of the best ways to look a bit less wintry is to add a bit of colour to your outfit.

This cardigan from Burton is an unsual kind of tomatoey red because of the marl, but I like it. If I was writing on Catwalk Queen I might be tempted to say something like ‘it’s coral, this season’s new colour and is bang on trend’. But I wont. It’s only £25 and will make a great addition to your wardrobe and add a bit of a kick to any outfit.



Suits & Tailoring

Burton linen summer jacket

By admin on April 1st, 2008

burton jacket suit.jpgBurton’s SB2 jacket is a great summer alternative to pinstripe or plain navy but is dark enough to avoid comparisons with the man from Del Monte. It’ll look great with a cobalt blue or coral tie, but equally good teamed with similar neutrals.

The jacket will set you back £69 which is a good price considering it’s 100% linen, the matching trousers are an equally reasonable £30. Suits on the high street never looked so good.

Burton stockings lady cufflinks

By Isabelle on March 10th, 2008

Burton_cufflinks_lady_stockingBurton have come a long way, their Black Label range is one of
the few great high street ranges for men but they still have a few duff
items like these ‘Stockings Lady’ cufflinks (£12).
I had to laugh when I saw them but I shudder to think of the kind of person who would actually buy these. The only purpose I can see fit for them is as a birthday present for someone you hate, only slightly better than say, a didgeridoo or a pair of comedy pants.

Burton get a bit cheeky with their Japanese Denim

By admin on February 22nd, 2008

Burtons_denim_2
If you’ve looked at our Jeans coverage in
the past then you’ll know all about raw & selvedge denim. You’ll also know
that the best selvedge denim comes from Japan. Not necessarily all denim from
Japan is expertly made on great looms and this is why Burton’s attempt
at Japanese denim
is a bit cheeky.

Burton were hoping for someone who kinda knows what selvedge denim is to
buy their regular denim in the false belief that because it said ‘Japanese
denim’, it would be selvedge. To be fair, it probably worked. The jeans are
completely sold out.

Off the Cuff and Iluwfashion encourages men to ‘watch’ the trends this year with some great watch suggestions.   
A Suitable Wardrobe reflects Fred Astaire shiny chic. Who said patent leather oxfords and button down cardigans were passé? Whether updating those black jazz shoes with Refinery29′s suggested and-I’s lounge wear or a traditional country club cardigan, formal footwear deserves a place in every man’s closet.   
For those gearcravers who still are not convinced of the versatility of the cardigan, how about a Burton Mark XIII Fortress jacket?  Completely waterproof and insulated, it’s perfect for singing in the rain.

Top Five: waterproof jackets

By ShinyMedia on May 21st, 2007

TopmanwatersA light waterproof jacket is fast becoming an essential in this changeable weather. The retro nylon bomber is the easiest style to wear (jacket left, from Topman), it looks good with a variety of looks and dress down tailored shorts if you decide to brave them this summer. American Apparel’s jacket is great for layering, pick an unusual colour like their baby pink or caramel. The most technical jacket is also the most pricey, Addict’s anorak has airholes under the arm so you don’t get too schweaty and stows away in its own little bag. See after the jump for rest of the picks and product links.

Burton mesh black and blue belt

By ShinyMedia on May 17th, 2007

Belt

 

This mesh belt is a nod to the sporty trend without going the full be-shellsuited hog. The bright blue is also in vogue so for a mere tenner you can update your look in a myriad of ways. Ok, only two ways but that’s pretty good for the cost of three pints in a London boozer. Wear with pale grey trousers and a short sleeved grey shirt for a modern look.



Footwear

Red Burton flip flops

By ShinyMedia on May 15th, 2007

RedflipsI’m not such a fan of flip flops, but these Burton ones
are a great buy for the park or to pop in your suitcase. The rich red colour makes them look a lot more expensive than the £6 they will set you back and you can safely team them with indigo jeans without looking like a scruffbag. Team them with Burton’s grey linen shorts  for a more edgy (and ventilation friendly!) look.

Extra long shoes, good or bad?

By ShinyMedia on April 20th, 2007

Longshoes

I don’t understand it myself but ultra long shoes seem to be all the rage at the moment. I hate them, I think they look awful, kind of like the men’s equivalent of the ultra pointed heels that were around for women a couple of years ago. I much prefer the round toed lace-ups I wrote about a couple of days ago. Tell us what you think and leave comments, full product links after the jump.
