Now that the clocks have gone back, there’s no denying that winter is on its way. The good news? That means it’s time for another wardrobe refresh! As the temperatures drop, it’s time to wrap up warm from the colder weather – but it goes without saying that you’ll want to do it in style. So, how exactly do you maintain a suave and sophisticated image with all those necessary extra layers? All it takes is a few key staple garments, and you’ll be sorted for the season.
We all know that a sharp suit is a necessary element of any man’s wardrobe, whatever the time of year. But next time you’re shopping for that perfectly-cut two-piece, give your ‘off-duty’ wardrobe some thought too.
Suit Direct – one of the fastest growing luxury suit retailers in the UK is known for its beautifully cut men’s formalwear from some of the UK’s leading fashion designers – but these days, it is gaining a glowing reputation for its wide range of men’s casualwear, too, becoming the first port of call for everything from casual shirts and chinos to Harrington jackets, V-neck and Merino wool jumpers, and perfectly cut seasonal coats.
“At Suit Direct, we’re dedicated to dressing men well, which is something you’ll see reflected throughout our entire collection. We don’t just want them to feel their best at the office or in the board room, but in every situation, so we’re delighted to offer a beautiful range of men’s casualwear that looks good, and makes you feel good, too,” says Pano Savvidis, digital marketing manager at Suit Direct.
With superb customer service and a constantly evolving range of products, it’s little wonder that Suit Direct has fast become a firm favourite in the world of premium men’s fashion. The retailer has gone the extra mile to ensure that its website is as user-friendly as possible, providing a seamless shopping experience from start to finish.
“Our website aims to provide you with the best service possible and offers help, dressing tips and weekly blog features to help you make an informed purchase from the comfort of your home, office or phone,” adds Pano. “We want the shopping process to be as easy and as hassle-free for everyone.”
One of the biggest challenges for men when shopping for some new season attire is the fit – especially when you’re shopping online. But Suit Direct has taken that all into account, and offers a range of fits, including Big and Tall, across a wide range of its brands.

This shirt comes in a chunky, smoky-grey check print, and is made from the finest premium cotton fabric, featuring the Ben Sherman hallmarks of a patch pocket, button-down collar and iconic branding.
