Gents looking smart ’n’ casual


with Style Spy: DEBORAH HATCH


ETTING a look that’s city clever but comfortable can be tough.

It’s all about striking the right balance of contemporary, but casual, smart, yet not obviously groomed.

For laidback Docklanders, a smart casual look is clearly the way forward. Our style hunt revealed the savviest men are sprucing up jeans or cords with classic tailoring and accessories. Try a flat cap, statement scarf or

low key man bag. When it comes to sharp layering and comfort dressing, mixing High Street with designer essentials is the secret. Meet our favourite smart casuals and get it sussed by checking out their style.
