SMARTEN UP YOUR ACT IN PENROSE CUFFLINKS

When it comes to smartening up your looks for those weddings and race meetings, it is those small details that have the potential to transform you into a modern-day dandy. Shoes, ties, pocket squares; they all play their own part in getting suited and booted for the big day in question. Care to look even closer still? Looks at the cuffs for the key to smart looks that could be good but are great instead.

They may be miniscule but the right cufflinks can pack a big punch if you get them right. Often an afterthought, they’re the accessory you need more than you probably ever realised. After all, what else measures less than an inch yet has the ability to prove that a man has his game in hand and understands that it’s the little things that count in those all-important sartorial situations? You need good cufflinks more than you think and classic cufflinks styles by Penrose need no introduction as your first fore into formal finesse.

THIS IS RETRO DONE RIGHT

Corduroy can be a minefield. Get it wrong and there’s a good chance you’ll spend your downtime looking like a Seventies science teacher on a school field trip. Done right however, corduroy can be the answer to your transitional dressing dreams as we head into autumn.

See beyond the stuffy connotations and corduroy’s appeal is easy to understand. Yes, it’s practical and hardwearing, but we can get that from our denim. Corduroy colours on the other hand extend beyond your usual blue and black, introducing jewel hues of rich emerald, ruby and sapphire to your outfits, plus a shimmering wale texture that keeps things interesting. It’s the country gent look we all covet come the colder days, all heavy fabrics and deep dramatic tones.

Once you’ve chosen your colour – stepping well away from anything mustard – it all comes down to cut. The beauty of the Hugo Boss Slim-Fit Fine-Ribbed Corduroy Jacket is two-fold. A fine rib creates a luxurious soft sheen that juxtaposes perfectly against autumn’s cotton tees and winter woollens, but more importantly, a slim fit steers your look well away from the science department. Perfectly tailored and in rich rust hue, it’s a seasonal take on a retro classic.
