For all the embarrassing jumpers and disagreeable weather conditions, the festive period is actually a time of ample sartorial opportunity. There’s no more welcome challenge to the fashion-forward man than the task of standing out amidst the glitz of a Yuletide ball or end-of-year dinner, and at Remus Uomo, we thrive upon running this stylistic gauntlet.
Embrace the darkness
One of our current favourite seasonal trends is pairing dark shades together, rather than automatically reaching to offset them with traditional white and off-white shades. Try matching your jet-black, satin-lapelled dinner suit with a similarly dark slim-fit shirt for a sleekly understated look.
You needn’t appear ostentatious to subtly break from the more limiting strictures of eveningwear tradition. A little detail can go a long way; the geometric print of this shirt for example works 'with' rather than 'against' the similar geometric pattern of this flocked geometric smoking jacket. Elevating each piece from a solid wardrobe addition to a formidable statement of stylish intent. This blazer is the perfect upgrade to the velvet jackets which prove so popular at this time of year.
Having said all the above, in certain circumstances an outfit that ploughs a more timelessly stylish furrow is simply the most appropriate option. However, there’s still room for the occasional contemporary detail, so long as each is carefully placed. We suggest a black dinner suit, complete with a subtle geometric pattern, matched with a crisp, tapered-fit white shirt, and a black microfibre bow tie.
