FIT FOR FRIDAY
Guys, its starts with the same age old question on a Friday morning, afternoon or for a bit of suspense………evening. “Are you going for a pint?!”
What better way to unwind after a stressful week of meetings, boardrooms, deadlines, paperwork, computers……….the same tedious and monotonous working regime! Your thinking to yourself Harvey Spector doesn’t live like this! Suits does indeed make…….Suits look glamorous. (If your unfamiliar with Suits I suggest you watch it, you’ll love it!) I’m venturing off the point a bit here I know but still;
Are you going for a pint after work?! You want to! Your lips are moist at the thought of sinking your favourite drink! You need it after all the paperwork this week! This is not the A4 you had in mind (Audi A4), eh?! BUT I can’t go dressed like this! I’m in a full suit for crying out loud!!!! For one reason or another you don’t feel comfortable rocking a suit to the local boozer. The local punters will take the piss out of you “Who do you think you are? Harvey Spector?!” Its time to get FIT FOR FRIDAY!
If its fitness tips your after then you’ll be disappointed! This is fitness for your wardrobe, guys! I shall take you through the ultimate FIT FOR FRIDAY guide which will allow you to look dapper without being accused of trying to be the next Harvey Spector!
Lets break it down. You go to work in suit. A suit! The ultimate man tool! The suit is so versatile the options are almost endless. Another factor to consider is mixing tailoring with casual wear is bang on trend at the moment! Your half way there with a suit!
FIT FOR FRIDAY
Some workplaces facilitate a casual dress code for employees on a Friday………that Friday Feeling! However, if your employers don’t then theres no need to worry. Simply save your best navy suit for Friday’s as this is the most versatile colour in the tailoring colour palette. It will go with almost any colour……..including black, surprisingly! Then again, black and blue rolls of the tongue doesn’t it so perhaps it was meant to be! Anyway, pick your best navy 3 piece suit for work on Friday.
In need of a navy suit?! Or you simply want to invest in a new one? Check out this beauty from TM LEWIN! The Holborn Two Tone 3 piece suit, I think you’ll agree it looks great! Not badly priced either at £354.
FIT FOR FRIDAY ON A CASUAL FRIDAY
The whole point of this post is you want to be FIT FOR FRIDAY! You’ve that Friday Feeling! Heading to your local pub in a slick 3 piece suit might appear to be too much? No Fear Fashionable Frank is here! Keep your Suit Jacket and possibly Waistcoat depending on how adventurous you are and add a pair of Chinos. Stone Chinos will provide a great contrast and emphasis the smart casual look you are going for!
TM LEWIN have some some nice Chinos. This pair are £44.95. TM LEWIN have a multi buy offer on their chinos too. There’s a lovely burgundy pair which would also work incredibly well with our navy colour scheme. A bit Autumn/Winter looking given its April however the multi buy offer provides good value for money. I’d recommend picking them guys!
Check out the range here.
You’ll definitely need to change your shirt no matter how good your hygiene is (leave the lynx at home!) we want a more casual look so that means a casual shirt!
Navy on navy is not necessarily a no, no (no, no, no there’s no limit!) as the Suit Jacket may come off when your sitting down in the pub. If you have the Waistcoat on even better (I love waistcoats! They add a different dimension to your outfit. Also its worth noting you’ll stand out a bit more in a waistcoat especially if it has a contrast back!). The contrast buttons on this casual shirt are a great feature and will break up the navy on navy.
This TM LEWIN Navy Oxford Shirt is priced at £34.95
You can’t go wrong with a white shirt (I would have the waistcoat for this look though to break up the light coloured Chinos and white shirt. Remember contrast is key!) This shirt is the same price as the navy one.
If your workplace does have a Casual Friday dress code then a change of tactics is required with regards your outfit. I suggest a Blazer instead of your Suit Jacket. Recycle the Chinos and your 2 options of Oxford Shirts and and a Blazer. This TM LEWIN Herringbone Blazer is the perfect shade of blue for your outfit and compliments the colours of the Chinos and Shirts.
This TM LEWIN BLAZER is priced at £149
Don’t forget your accessories guys! These make a good outfit great! A Pocket Square for your Suit or Blazer is simply a must. This sky blue linen pocket square looks very well on a Suit. If you are going for the more Casual Friday look then a red pocket square like in the picture is a nice colour pop and adds great contrast and character to your outfit!
TM LEWIN POCKET SQUARE priced at £20
TM LEWIN have a great selection of pocket squares check them out here.
Pick an adventurous sock. Something a bit different. Especially if you are going for the slightly cropped leg length trend. I suggest these navy and pink socks from TM LEWIN. These may get you stick from your mates however its a conversation starter with women…….
TM LEWIN SOCKS priced at £8.00
PUT YOUR BEST FOOT FORWARD
Add some Brogues to complete your outfit. Keep it simple here. These TM LEWIN Brogues can used with your 3 piece Suit look or your Blazer, Shirt and Chinos casual style!

Depending on the unpredictable weather investing in a Herringbone Flat Cap might be worth considering. This is suitable only for the Blazer, Shirt, Chinos and Brogues outfit! Adding this Flat Cap oozes Heritage style, classic, masculine and unique!
