Make a good suit a great one.



Words: L. Thorpe


Buying for someone who keeps it casual can be a rather enjoyable experience. Comfort is their forte, choosing relaxed silhouettes and casual accessories over more formal looks. Think neutral tones, a monochrome palette and oversized fits that are easy to wear and make them feel good.

One option is to go for classic casual essentials like these black slim fit chinos. With their flattering fit and breathable cotton fabric, they’re versatile, comfortable and pair well with casual separates. They’ll easily slot into your casual guy’s year-round wardrobe.

As for the top half, you can’t go wrong with a t-shirt – he practically lives in them. Don’t just get any t-shirt though, treat him to this taupe heavyweight one for something that ups his t-shirt game. It’s cotton-rich, has a relaxed fit and a super-soft peached finish.

Another laidback taupe piece that they’ll love is this melange relaxed fit skipper jumper. It’s a great layering jumper that works over a T-shirt or an Oxford shirt depending on the season (and the occasion).

Leather gifts also go down well for men’s smart casual vibes. Choose from a simple black casual leather belt that they can wear with jeans or casual trousers alike, or elevate their accessories even more with a black grained leather backpack. It’s an upgrade from their casual canvas backpack, all while still keeping with that laidback look that they love.
