How to do smart casual

By Alistair Mulhall, 29 August 2014

If, when it comes to dressing, you're somewhere in between Don Draper from Mad Men and Rick Grimes from The Walking Dead, you'll be happy to know we've got you covered. Of course, we're talking about smart-casual dressing. If you’re lucky enough not to have to wear a suit to work but can't turn up in joggers, you'll understand how tricky it can be to get the look right. 

That’s why we’re calling out zip up knits – the cornerstone of a strong 'smasual' look and excellent worn over a classic shirt. Add a pair of slim-fit jeans (turn-ups optional, but recommended) with some handsome brogues and you've got 9-5 perfection.

You'll also notice we've highlighted Sandqvist. If ever there was a brand that offers the best bags for a casual office dress code, this is it. Stuff with your favourite things and off you go.
