At London Collections Men, I kept asking one question in all my interactions with men: “What should a man invest in when it comes to his wardrobe”. Two things came up every single time. A good suit and accessories. Chester Barrie’s presentation was small but very educational. Topics that were discussed is that a man should learn about quality fabrics. He should understand his colour pallet and most of all learn the art of choosing a well fitted suit. When entering the Chester Barrie store give yourself all the time you need in choosing your pieces.

Don’t ever feel intimidated by the name Savile Row. They are experts when it comes to tailoring suits. Just be open and honest and say you have no idea what your looking for. Explain you don’t know what suits your body type. This is what you pay for, their expert advice. They will guide you in every possible way. Remember your suit represents their brand. You are representing their reputation when walking on the streets or in a business meeting.
Whilst browsing at the belts, ties and handkerchiefs it occurred to me to highlight the point. You can dress your suits with many accessories and in doing so representing many different occasions. That’s why it’s worth the quality investment when it comes to buying your timeless suit. But it’s in the way you use your accessories and its colour that will add to your high end look. Your ties are so crucial in showing the public a glimpse of who you are.
For this article I have decided not only to show the Chester Barrie collection but also zoom in on the ties the models were wearing at the presentation. You will see wide, paisley, pastel, printed, striped, chequered and colourful ties. The update variety shown in this collection is gorgeous. It caters for lots of different occasions. One of my favourites and I like to call them chunky ties, are gong to be huge next season. If you are a young gentleman, than bold wide chunky ties are always youthful and playful. Sam and Chris sets a great example in the interview. The dark paisley ties are perfect for evening wear and just will accentuate your evening attire look.
