ohannes Huebl shows you how to nail nautical
Every week the world’s best-dressed men get photographed looking superb while going about their daily lives, but what can us mere mortals learn about when it comes to style from their well-executed wardrobe choices? Here we bring you the greatest get-ups of the past seven days, and break down the style rules you can take away from each.
Pop your collar
While Eddie Redmayne’s sharp grey suit was on-point as ever at the Toronto International Film Festival last weekend, it’s that collar that caught our attention. We wouldn’t usually be ones to encourage a popped collar, but with Redmayne’s always-preppy vibe it just seems to work.

Break up your black
All-black-everything is a great look, but it’s a tricky one to pull off (get the shades too similar and you look like you’re in some sort of interpretive theatre production). The easiest way to get into this look is to inject some dark grey into the mix, as Jamie Bell did at the Marc Jacobs show at New York Fashion Week.
You don’t need a yacht to go nautical
Johannes Huebl and Ralph Lauren both nailed the whole “nautical” thing (without going full-on sailor) at New York Fashion Week. The way to get this right is to take traditionally nautical items – a DB blazer, a breton shirt, white trousers – and anchor them with modern items like jeans or suede loafers.
Turn-ups are turning up all over the place
We’ve long been supporters of wearing your suit casually, however, one thing we’ve noticed a lot more men doing recently is bringing back the turn-up. Previously seen as only for the most formal-of-formal office trousers, that extra inch of material added to the cuff is now starting to appear on the most dressed-down tailoring – as demonstrated by Joe Jonas at the NYFW Tommy Hilfiger show. We’re keeping an eye on this one…
Keep your beard game strong
This week Prince Harry celebrated his 31st birthday by growing out his beard this week – and he looks superb. If you want to copy him (and we suggest you do), invest in a good stubble trimmer and set it to the 4mm mark.
