F&F PROVIDE ‘PARTY SEASON’ RETRO GLAMOUR
BLURRING THE BOUNDARY BETWEEN FORMALWEAR AND CASUALWEAR
The glitter, glamour and decadence of the 1970s inspires party wear this season for F&F. The impressive winter 2015 collection of menswear blurs the boundary between formal and casual for the infamous party season – meaning guys can feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the day and into the night without looking overly or underdressed. It’s all about creating a balance of smart with casual and mixing the luxe with the everyday – an individual’s understated and simple response to the party season dress code and F&F have captured this superbly. Classic tuxedo jackets are somehow combined with smart denim and luxury knit pieces for a modern take on an evening look.
“With slim silhouettes and creative fabrics I’m increasingly impressed with the F&F menswear offering each season. Many Christmas parties are straight after work so it's often not practical to be sat in the office with a full tuxedo all day. These outfits are spot on for what the average male will feel comfortable wearing for an office festive party. F&F are proving that great style doesn’t need to be overly expensive and can be achieved on a budget.” – Craig Landale, Editor-in-Chief
Camel knitwear and wool blend blazers are key statements referencing the laidback elegance of the 70s era. The colour palette is classic – plenty of black, midnight, white, silver and camel shades with the autumnal tones of amber, gold and smokey blue adding richness to the materials. Texture is also key with tweedy wool blends and cosy oversized knit pieces with a hand knitted feel and appearance. The oversized scarf in a grey check pattern is a team favourite here at MWS and will add a real sense of sartorial style to almost any smart casual outfit combination you create. Another favourite, the grey wool overcoat is probably the most discreet statement piece of the season, but a must-have for everyday wear to battle the chilling winter elements in style.
