Today sees the start of a new feature here at Clothes-Make-the-Man where we take essential menswear pieces, every well dressed man should have in his wardrobe at his stylish disposal and give you three options, one will fit any budget you are catering for. So to kick things off we are looking at one of the most versatile items of clothing for a dapper contemporary male, the Denim Shirt. No longer restricted to after office hours and so casual you ran the risk of being refused enter to certain salubrious nightclubs. Now regarded by many as THE essential wardrobe work horse, the versatile nature of denim fabric has gained it a new revived reputation as the ultimate wardrobe staple.
Easily dressed up or down, denim in its main forms are your foolproof, all year round investment. From smart classic Chambray shirts and office appropriate denim blue tonal weave suits, to the new heavier weight denim shirt ? also available in black, equally versatile and sharp.
A heavier denim shirt makes for the perfect transitional piece. And it?s ideal layering material as autumn approaches. Wear it unbuttoned with a crisp white t-shirt underneath and a pair of classic Camel Chinos to complete the look. Then as soon as the weather takes a turn, just add a chunky knit on top.
Layer this iconic blue hue by adding a fine knit cardigan to your look, over a shirt or under a smary casual jacket. Or choose a classic denim-blue crew neck to compliment jeans or casual trousers.
Denim has a formal side too. The double weave evokes a uniquely denim feel, looks great every time you wear it and is almost as durable as that favourite pair of jeans you?re saving for the weekend.
