Autumn is the perfect season to try something new with your style, and this year we’re seeing a lot of country gentleman styling cropping up. We love this look, and it’s a very versatile way to style your clothing for any age with a few simple accessories and shoes. If you’d like some tips on mastering the country gentleman style, read on.
Tweed jackets & waistcoats
Every man needs a suit and a true country gentleman knows that tweed is a great fabric for setting the tone of your style right away. Tweed is available in many different colours and patterns, and with modern tailoring you can easily wear a slim fitting tweed suit without looking stuffy or old fashioned. Wool is also a popular suit fabric option, especially for this time of year, and again choose your colour or pattern to suit your taste. Pay attention to the jacket cut and the waistcoat, as these elements are essential to create that country gent style.
A tweed cap is the perfect way to style your country gentleman outfit, and we offer a variety of styles and colours from your favourite brands. A flat cap in a traditional herringbone pattern in vintage blue colour looks great on anyone, and this vintage style will never fall out of fashion. For a bit more colour, why not try a similar style but in red? For mastering the country gentleman style, you definitely need to own one of these iconic hats, and wear it proudly.
When it comes to the preferred footwear of a country gentleman, it has to be a handmade brogue. These shoes, which originated in the peat bogs of Ireland, are designed with punched hole detailing which gives them their unique style. Choose from our bestselling brogues including the Robinson Andrew Jackson brogues in burnished whiskey calf leather, or the timeless Barker Westfield.
Brogues might be the preferred footwear choice for the country gentleman, but for practical purposes you also need to invest in a quality pair of wellington boots for keeping the mud at bay when enjoying the great outdoors. These Hunter Original Side Adjustable Wellingtons are everything you’ll need for a stylish stroll in the countryside.
Every stylish country gent knows that accessories can make or break an outfit, so make sure you use the best quality leather belt to tie your whole look together. The Walcot combination woven cord and leather belt has the perfect outdoorsy feel for your overall country-style, but if you’d prefer to keep it simple, a classic tan leather belt is ideal, and versatile enough that you can wear it anytime.
Carrying the essentials
Your country gentleman style can easily be ruined by stuffing your pockets with your essentials – keys, phone, wallet etc, so make sure you retain maximum style points with a suitable bag for your personal items. This Caledonian Satchel combines quality leather with traditional Harris Tweed, making it the perfect complement to the rest of your clothing and footwear.
