Recommended Retailers for Men’s Workwear

ONE OF THE QUESTIONS I AM ALWAYS ASKED IS…

…where to shop for contemporary workwear that is functional and comfortable. So whether you wear a suit or the dress code is more relaxed, here is a modern man’s list of brands that (fashionably) means business.

I work with clients who have a variety of budgets so if you are looking for the best of the high street or want to invest in designer, there are relevant suggestions for you.

And don’t forget to take care of your investments! Here are the items you need to ensure longevity of your clothes and help you to stay looking on-top of your game.

I would love to take your style and personal image on a new trajectory so if you would like to work with me further then please get in touch here to book a discovery call and receive my complementary information pack.
