Wearing Knitwear this Season: Peter Gribby

One of the key items in Autumn or Winter is knitwear, it’s the common go to item that everyone enjoys. Adding a layer of warmth without being bulky. The perfect extra comfort when indoors and another barrier under your coat when outdoors.

As you’d expect we’re fully stocked with knitwear, ranging from turtle necks to crew, full zip to half zip and lots of choice of colours and patterns. Everyone’s taste is different, after all it would be boring if we all liked the same things.

Peter Gribby Knitwear

Peter Gribby is a family run company that makes classic simple knitwear, from crew to v neck and some added zip necks too. They are all very well made and come in both lambswool and cotton and a wonderful Autumnal palette of colours.

With colours set for Autumn such as sage, amber, caramel and redcurrent these also work to add some colour to your everyday workwear. Break up that jean and shirt outfit with a crew neck jumper.

The treat with these is that they’re not bulky, they don’t weigh you down meaning that if a blazer is needed for a meeting one of the Peter Gribby items can be worn underneath and you won’t feel like you’re wearing a puffer jacket.

One of the comments we get when it comes to lambswool jumpers is the fact they they are often hand-wash only but the Peter Gribby range is all machine washable. You can pop these in the wash at 30* and it saves so much hassle.

All of the Peter Gribby Knitwear is available at £60 or 2 for £100, perfect to treat yourself or to start buying for Christmas.

Adding Layers with Baileys Knitwear

It seems that Autumn has hit hard this week, the rain, the wind and the cold mornings. Too warm for overcoats and scarves but too cold for a simple shirt. This is the perfect time to discover and fall in love with layering.

Layering allows you to be ready for whatever the British weather decides to throw at us, keeping you toasty for the morning or evening commute and then allowing you to remove a layer once you get to the office.

A turtle neck jumper is the ideal item to use for layering. Pop a simple t-shirt underneath you’ve got a classic look, a look that was good enough for Daniel Craig in James Bond.

Now to start the day when it’s a little bit colder, adding another piece of knitwear over the top adds instant warmth but might be too bulky for some. The easy solution is to wear a blazer of coat into the office and once there you can remove it and still look smart.

Just like when you wear shirts you can make a real statement with the colour you pick. Keep it simple with a navy or black or bring your look to life with a burgundy or red.

Here are the Baileys turtle necks that we have in stock, and you can order any of them online.

Effortless Style with Remus Uomo

The rustic hues, the heavier fabrics and the extra layers, Autumn has without doubt arrived. 2 weeks time the clocks change and we’ll all be leaving the office when it’s dark outside.

For the past few months we’ve been enjoying short sleeves, linen trousers and using air conditioning instead of the heater but now it’s time to swap to the Autumn wardrobe and wave goodbye to Summer.

Personally I love coats, the outfit feels more complete and guys tend to look smarter with the right coat on.

In Autumn, coats complete the look, they tie it all together. The latest coat collection from Remus Uomo have an effortless style about them. They open up the door of possibility, wearing it with your favourite jeans for an everyday look or team it with a merino wool waistcoat, tie and a smart pair of trousers to complete the smart work look.

Wearing an overcoat that has a check pattern is a classic look, that’s why guys like David Beckham, Daniel Craig and Prince Charles have all been pictured wearing one lately. It allows you to add a simple but effective look to an otherwise plain outfit.

As the weather gets colder you can easily add an accessory like a cashmere scarf or leather gloves and not have too much worry as to whether or not it goes with the coat.

The coat show is the Remus Uomo Rowan Check Wool Overcoat
