Tailoring is now less formal and more relaxed than ever before. But how do you dress up when you’ve grown used to the usual 9-5 workwear uniform? The classic suit, shirt and tie combo? We show you how to keep it smart and professional with these key ‘new formal’ pieces.
The good news is, you have options especially in an office which demands a more business-casual dress code. Gone are the days of drab grey suits, these days it’s all about blue or a subtle check. What was once buttoned up and uptight is now undone and stylish.
Dressing down the classic business suit has quickly become the norm in companies across the world. Deconstructed tailoring is a synch when paired back with a merino knit a basic T-shirt and sleek white sneakers for a smart finishing touch.

The wool is 100% natural and renewable. It’s ability to absorb and release moisture makes it comfortable to wear in all temperatures.
