How to Dress to Impress in the Credit Crunch

Men dress to impress as markets fall. A new trend in men's fashion is being seen in London. Saville Row tailors report a move away from conspicuous consumption. Bespoke customers are moving away from brash chalk stripes into plains, soft herringbone and light sharkskin fabrics. There appears to be no slowdown in the bespoke market.


  1. Keep to classic trends. Look up styles that celebrities wear, or a simple pair of jeans and a dark t-shirt will do fine.Dress%20to%20Impress%20in%20the%20Credit%20Crunch%20Step%201.jpg
  2. Return to formality dressing. Across London elegant, serious suits are making a return. The hedge fund fashion for dressing down is being subtly replaced as men seek to dress to impress. There is a feeling if you are casual in your clothes then you are casual in your job.Dress%20to%20Impress%20in%20the%20Credit%20Crunch%20Step%202.jpg
  3. Increase the tailoring details. Suits return to having cuffs with working buttons, and excessive features such as large collars are on the way out. In the High Street with Marble Arch shops capturing the likes of Saville Row Tailors, the style stakes are higher.Dress%20to%20Impress%20in%20the%20Credit%20Crunch%20Step%203.jpg
  4. Embrace English tailoring rather than trendy fluid shapes. English tailoring is world famous but in recent years softer more fluid shapes from Europe were widely observed. Now the streets of London have returned to a more classic look as men strive to look good in the workplace.Dress%20to%20Impress%20in%20the%20Credit%20Crunch%20Step%204.jpg
