Nik Loves

For occasion wear, it is really important to be yourself. Sometimes a dress code is essential, but there are ways to modify a formalwear look if you have comfort as a priority versus conformity - psychologically speaking. My picks see us wearing classics - a white shirt from the likes of The Kooples or Jaeger, black shoes from Savoy Taylors Guild, accessories such as a Smythson briefcase or Fossil watch and swagger that says "I've just been to the gym, don't judge me on the glow".
