He revealed his autumn style tips as he modelled for Mango menswear.
What do you like about autumn dressing?
I personally hate the cold, so winter is a tough time for me, I am a warm weather dude. However, I do like coat shopping. It’s one thing I love to shop for – I think a great coat makes any outfit special.
What is the key look you’ll be wearing this autumn?
I think it’s going to be check suits for those English gangster kind of vibes. Now seems like a good moment for that sort of style.
What colours should a man wear in the autumn?
I think it’s nice to have some fresh colours in the autumn, they lift your spirits and give you some positive energy. I would suggest coloured shirts or knitted pieces under dark suits and coats. The contrast is cool, especially if you choose nice red and green tones.
What's the one key piece that most helps a guy transition from summer into autumn?
A double-breasted suit does the job.
What sort of fabrics are good choices for menswear in the autumn season?
I think corduroy, suede and sheepskin are great for this coming season – they’re rugged and masculine.
