Our Biggest Style Inspirations – Dappad

We all have our style heroes. Those men with such iconic looks that you can’t help but be inspired by them. Worst of all, they always seem make it look so easy, so incredibly effortless. And perhaps it’s that effortless class of style that makes them so appealing.

David Beckham

Now a man of 40, David Beckham has graced our screens and magazines for two glorious decades of effortless style. Making it more fashionable than ever to be a British man in America.

From flawless button downed, quintessentially British formal wear to sleeves rolled, tattoo revealing casual in textured shirts and always the appropriate level of layering. David Beckham has left almost no style not graced by his own natural rendition. Even his sportswear is on point every time and David is famed as one of the driving forces for Adidas performance and streetwear.

David’s wardrobe is likely the most versatile of our icons, finding slick alternatives to full formal by mixing in a pair of trainers with navy tailoring or working a motorcycle jacket over textured layers. This is a man who has an answer for every scenario, and it’s always hassle-free style.

David Gandy

The Essex-born model began his career winning a youth model competition before gaining superstardom for his role in a TV commercial for the popular Dolce & Gabbana fragrance, Light Blue. David Gandy brought a more athletic and muscular physique to male fashion at a time when the industry popularised slimmer, more feminine male images.

Now the highest paid male model in the industry, David brings effortless sophistication and sexual authority where ever he goes. With his commanding height and broad shoulders, his frame is built to wear any suit or outerwear like a true man’s fashion icon.

His off the catwalk style is fronted by an impressive collection of tailoring often mashed up with casual pieces, all pulled together with an impeccable collection of gentlemen’s accessories. Not to mention a year round Mediterranean glow.

Eddie Redmayne

As slick and captivating off screen as he is on screen. The rising star of Hollywood Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything) has boyish good looks to spare but above all is always appropriately and immaculately presented for any occasion.

Being a face of Burberry, Eddie is naturally another quintessentially British gentlemen on the red carpet but has an adaptable and easy going rockstaresque casual wardrobe for his never understated casual look-book.

A Look Inside the Ultimate Capsule Wardrobe

What is in a man’s ultimate capsule wardrobe? If you had to compact your wardrobe and only have a handful of timeless items to mix and match with, what would you choose? According to Men’s Health, a man only needs 24 items in his wardrobe, including shoes and accessories. These staple items have to be versatile as the capsule wardrobe needs to create outfits for the office, for formal occasions and for casual affairs. Take a look at what our style consultants think should be included in the ultimate capsule wardrobe

A Coat – one that transitions from formal to casual.                                                                                                          

This coat from Tiger of Sweden does exactly this. It is smart because of the colour, material and cut, but because of its’ sportier collar and hidden buttons it is still relaxed. You can wear this both on and off duty.

A pair of Handmade High Quality Shoes and the model you choose is so so important.

There are only 5 models that a man should ever look to own when it comes to shoes. They are: An Oxford, a Brogue, A Chelsea Boot, A Chukka Boot or a Monkstrap. Forget about all the other inventions – these are the staple shoes a man should own. If you are starting from scratch – start with an Oxford.

Chinos – and please note we are not talking about baggy khaki chinos.

A Highquality Designed Tshirt in black and white.

Sometimes we hear that No I don’t want to spend money on a Tshirt. A Tshirt is where you should spend your money cause it will make you look like Hank in Californication in no time.
