Today, ‘smart’ doesn’t just mean a suit, and a 'regular' day in the office could be one spent working from home – and we’re here for it.
For some men, this is an exciting development which gives professionals the chance to show off more style and personality, feel comfier in work environments, and – perhaps most importantly – liberate the neck from the tie on more formal occasions.
For others though, this new flexibility comes with more room to misinterpret the dress code.
Enter Charles Tyrwhitt's new ‘Work Smarter. Not Harder.’ collection. With a focus on smart comfort and versatility that mirrors a versatile work life, expect sharp formal and casual designs that are made to be dressed up and down, depending on your personal flair and the dress code.
Let’s look at the staple pieces from the collection. Tyrwhitt is known and loved most for being ‘the home of proper shirts’, and they’ve applied the same level of craftsmanship that goes into formal tailoring, to their new Denim Shirt.
Coming in the perfect ocean mid-blue and deep indigo, it’s time to reset common opinion that this hero fabric should only be worn off-duty.
Constructed from 100% cotton, the cutaway collar is modern and adaptable, and the garment wash makes this shirt extra soft to the touch.
Tucked into slim-fit chinos with a belt and Oxford shoes or teamed with a blazer, it works as an artfully laid-back take on smart. For something sharper, style with an open collar or with a tie, and wear with a plain suit for some much-needed texture. Adding denim to your work wardrobe is a comfortable, stylish and confident move. Things just got interesting.
Moving on to essential layers, pure Merino is Tyrwhitt’s signature wool of choice – and with good reason. Lightweight, breathable and temperature-regulating, their knitwear comes in a range of neck styles from classic crew and V to their bestselling zip neck.
Feel warm and look presentable in the office with a jacket, shirt and tie, and relax in chinos with a glass of malbec on the weekend. Easy.
Though we can get more creative with work outfits, for that big pitch or interview, nothing beats the feeling of wearing a new suit.
Take Tyrwhitt’s Ultimate Performance Suit. Crafted from 100% Merino, it has natural stretch and crease recovery for a smooth look that lasts all day. Who says tailoring can’t feel comfy?
This style is so popular, it comes in a range of colours and textures, so you can build your arsenal of effortless suits - and wear the jacket and trousers as separates for even more work-appropriate looks.
In short, Tyrwhitt’s collection was designed to ensure men can always feel comfortable and confident, look the part, and nail the dress code – effortlessly.
