Sharp Style for Autumn

Tommy was pulled to the side by us on his way to afternoon drinks - his outfit being the reason why.

With Canberra’s temperatures dropping fast, Tommy opted for both style and functionality with his maroon blazer as the 'statement'. However, he has created an effortless overall look - keeping the outfit light and 'smart-casual' pairing it with a classic v-neck white tee, cream chinos and tan shoes. Very appropriate for Autumn.

It’s refreshing to find a man in Canberra who enjoys shopping and dressing sharp.
