Pair autumnal brown chinos with dark blue accessories if you’re a slave to denim (what man isn’t?) and want to try something a bit different. A trilby gives the look a bit of added panache, while the bag is ideal for the beach or carrying through airports. Blue is the footwear colour of the moment, with shoes and hybrid trainers found in every hue. This Lacoste pair is versatile enough to pack in your holiday suitcase, and enables you to smarten up or go ultra-casual. Throw in a multicoloured pocket square to breathe life into any blazer.


Wash light-coloured fabric belts (because they’ll look grubby over time) in the washing machine but put them in a laundry bag to protect clothes from the buckle.
