Here’s an outfit you could wear to semi-formal events or fancy dinner dates. Is it weird that I like wearing blazers during the day and just a button down at night? Well, I always feel more comfortable without a blazer and in my case, I need to move around freely especially since we had dinner at Spiral, Sofitel. I mean, I need to be comfortable since I’m going for many rounds in the buffet, lol. Sorry, my mind is drifting. Back to the outfit! I wore a basic button down and a basic pair of trousers and finished off the look by adding pops of color through my printed socks from Richer Poorer (they’re finally able at the Complex Lifestyle Store!) and my new favorite fragrance from James Bond 007!
What I’m wearing: button down (Topman), brown leather belt (Zara Man), man bag (The SM Store), watch (Aldo Accessories), trousers (ASOS), printed socks (Richer Poorer), brogues (Perry Ellis). Hype this on lookbook here.

I started blogging just 2 years ago after requests from my Instagram followers. Since then That Dapper Chap has gone from strength to strength and I have had the opportunity to work with some great brands such as White Stuff, Racing Green, Primark, Peter Werth and Next to name a few.In fact I was awarded the NBN fashion blog of 2015 award in November 2015 which was a defining moment for me. There are so many great bloggers out there so it’s very humbling to be recognized in such a way.
2016 kicked off with LC:M (London Collection Men) and I’m really looking forward to taking That Dapper Chap to the next level, it’s exciting to work with both large and small companies and I can’t wait to see what TDC can offer its readers over the coming months.I will of course continue to post my own daily looks and offer style advice as well as highlighting great menswear and products that are of interest to my readers.While spring is a few weeks away I do like this time of year as it allows me to layer and wear wool and tweed. These images show me wearing a brown three piece wool suit from Next.
The woolen tie is by the Cordial Churchman. The two tone brogues are by Redfoot and the bag is by the Cambridge Satchel Company. The brown wool felt pork pie hat is from Village Hats. The Uniqlo socks finish the look.
