Men’s AW17 Style Guide | The Alessio Collection

Blending smart functionality with relaxed shapes, the new Alessio collection caters for the modern, innovative gentleman. This family of messenger bags and rucksacks provides a new, laidback aesthetic for the Maxwell Scott man. Here’s how to style each piece from the Alessio collection for every angle of life…

In The Office

For those necessary yet typical days working in the office, opt for a smart-casual aesthetic with a tailored trouser and leather trainer combination. Inject an autumnal hue into a ribbed knit sweater and layer under a grey toned shirt for simple transitional style for days at your desk. Wear with the Santino L shoulder bag – the ultimate sartorial workhorse which champions multi-functionality for the workplace. Use the adjustable shoulder strap to wear either on your back and by your side. Because it’s always good to have options, right?

Weekend City Break

Whether you’ve escaped the city for a well-earned respite or you’ve flown to a faraway city for a culture hit, your weekends away require no fuss in the style department. A capsule wardrobe you can fit comfortably into your holdall is an ideal, lightweight way to travel for a city break. Fuse a classic cotton Breton top with a tailored navy double-breasted jacket for an effortless weekend look. Indigo denim is a solid staple to take on your journey – pair your jeans with some minimal sneakers in a complementary midnight blue tone. Sling the Ravenna satchel bag over your shoulder for your weekends exploring new places.

The Interview

When those pre-interview nerves hit, fretting over which tie to wear will only increase your anxiety levels. First impressions are important. Take note that organising a powerful ensemble in advance is definitely worth your while. Team with a signature crisp white shirt and a print tie in a sensible yet striking shade for a look that suggests substance, not stuffiness. Maintain an exterior as polished as your CV with sharp tailoring combined with classic leather brogues. Remember, your appearance will only get you so far – brushing up on your professional skills as well as your sartorial skills is highly recommended.

Dress Down Friday

When you’re winding down for the weekend, this time of year calls for statement knitwear in the workplace. Combine with smart black denim to execute the perfect ‘dress down Friday’ look in the office. If you’re chained to your desk all Friday with tasks to tick off by the end of the week, your footwear may not seem that important. Correction: it’s actually more vital that you nail this with casual ensembles. Balance out the laid-back aesthetic with a more formal shoe like a suede brogue. After all, it’s not the weekend just yet.
