Today’s working landscape has changed. While anyone over 50 might remember a time before cell phones, when everyone wore a suit and casual Friday’s were the thing of fiction, things are now altogether more flexible. There are fewer rules, and the ones we have are being endlessly bent or completely dismantled (trainers with a tuxedo, anyone?)


This new way of working brings with it a raft of dressing challenges. After all, you don’t want to be the guy in a two-piece when everyone else is racing around in jeans and slogan T-shirts. To that end, we’ve pulled together an outfit cheat sheet by a man with the sartorial know-how - Trunk’s Mats Klingberg - for three different types of working man, designed to serve as a reference point for anyone who may need a helping hand.




Men in this camp can work in a number of professions, but the unifying rule is they don’t spend more than a week in the same city. When your work takes you on and off airplanes and in and out of cabs, comfort and versatility in your wardrobe take on a whole new importance. “You should basically be able to reach in to your wardrobe blindfolded and pick out a jacket, a shirt and a pair of trousers and they will match,” says Klingberg. “This will make dressing and packing so much easier and you’ll get more use out of everything.” So, staple knitwear, jackets and lightweight trousers in brown, grey, black are a great start.





If you’re in London, Berlin or Australia, chances are you know at least 13 people who work in graphic design. Are they in suits? No, we didn’t think so. Still, it’s no excuse to let style slide. Sub-30, you can get away with printed T-shirts and light denim, but head north of that number and you’re better off opting on the smarter side. Think Steve Jobs and you’re on the right track. Klingberg says, “Keep it as simple as possible, so that you can put most of your efforts on living life and getting the job done.” That means a loosely tailored jacket, chinos or slim trousers, block-colour knitwear and brown leather or suede loafers.






The 2018 CEO is as likely to be that nerdy 20-year-old in jeans and an old sweater as he is to be suited and booted. We would suggest, however, opting for a slightly smarter rendition of the look than Mark Zuckerberg. For a modern twist that still means business, mix-and-match your jackets and trousers; alternatively, you can always rely on the classic navy or charcoal wool-mix suit. Klingberg advises, “Have things tailored to fit if needed, and you’ll go a long way. We all come in different shapes and forms, so alterations can make a big difference to how something fits, which in turn can make a big difference to how you look and feel. This is not about being vain; it’s about being smart.” We couldn’t agree more.

Like days off and glasses of fine single malt, jackets fall into the category of things you can’t have too many of - within reason. After all, they’re incredibly versatile: for every outfit you’ve got, there’s a jacket that would coordinate just perfectly. And they work throughout the year, whether you’re transitioning from outdoors to air-con on a balmy day or dealing with unpredictable weather and changing seasons.


With this in mind, there’s always good reason to restock your jacket selection. Here are some essential, timeless styles that every man should own, plus some of-the-moment updates.



Bomber jacket were never designed with style in mind: they were originally just for pilots, after all. But this commitment to functionality is what makes them so timeless. They’re lightweight, protective and masculine.


The update Technical fabrics emphasise this piece’s utilitarian roots, and look totally contemporary. Thom Browne and Acne Studios are creating versions that hit the balance between timeless and timely.




Equal parts rugged and relaxed, a good denim jacket is one you’ll wear for years. If you’ve shied away from getting one because you live in your jeans and you’re afraid to double up, use this as a good excuse to get into wearing chinos.


The update There’s a strong Americana vibe working its way through menswear at the moment: don’t hold back from going full lumberjack and teaming your denim jacket with a plaid shirt and work boots.





The leather jacket has been cool since before cool was a thing. Sometimes, the original is the best, and in this case it was Marlon Brando in 1953’s The Wild One. All these years later, it’s still hard to beat that look: leather biker, white T-shirt and jeans. Perfect.


The update Many designers are focusing on shearling right now, and a cosy collar on your jacket is a great way to wear the look. Check out Stella McCartney’s version.







It’s a familiar scene: a biting wind outside, stuffy heating inside, a mad rush from one place to the next. This is where the puffer jacket comes into its own. They’re lightweight and compact, and easy to layer over any outfit, smart or casual.


The update Canada Goose focuses on functionality; for a more style-centred approach, take a look at the latest pieces with bold contrast panels from the experts at Moncler.

Fashion favourite 3.1 Phillip Lim has teamed up with Woolmark to offer a neat collection of wool-rich styles that are perfect for autumn.



Our favourites? The sumptuous ivory-hued mohair jumper is topping our wish list thanks to its generous fit and super soft construction. Make a high-fashion statement and keep your hair tucked into the roll-neck collar; black trousers or a full skirt make a brilliant pairing for day or evening. For cooler days in the city, the oversized trench is a smart choice that will stand the test of time. There’s no wrong way to wear it, so shake things up daily with cigarette pantsmidi skirts or minimalist maxi dresses.


Thanks to Woolmark’s ongoing mission to support the use of natural wool fibres, everything from the production to the lifespan of the garments has been carefully considered. The impact on the environment and the people who come together to make each piece isn’t simply an afterthought; it’s a real piece of the story, and one that we are proud to support.
