New Year, Better Dressed You

Five men’s style resolutions that’ll keep you looking fresh all year


It’s been a crazy couple of years but we are hopeful that 2022 is going to be the year of more pub lunches, friends’ barbies, and sporting events once again. To help you really lean into the social calendar, we’ve created some very simple (and sustainable) style resolutions that’ll ensure you step out looking suave this January.

The new year is always a good time to recalibrate and put some new habits into place. If you’ve been thinking that you need a bit of an update, follow these five tips and you’ll be absolutely sorted for the next 12 months.


Learn To Appreciate The Basics

Do you have an expensive suit, luxury watch, or designer shades but don’t really bother with basic tees and jeans? As much as it’s important to invest in big ticket items, investing in a handful of good quality basics can also elevate your look. For example, a pair of Jacob Cohen jeans isn’t like every other stock standard pair of men’s jeans out there. Perfectly hand tailored, the Italian craftsmanship really shines through, and you can tell these luxurious jeans are ahead of the game. The same applies to a classic baseball tee from James Perse, throw one on and you’ll immediately feel the difference on your skin. Also, the way the fabric perfectly drapes over your shoulders will be noticed not just by you… trust us.

Do An Annual Underwear Update

New year, new underwear drawer. January is the perfect time to throw out all those pairs of boxers that are well past their use by date. In terms of restocking, there are a couple of rules to follow. Firstly, novelty prints are not for men over 21-years-old. The second rule is to ease up on flashy logos – bigger does not always equal better. Opt for simple colours with minimal branding to keep your jocks drawer suave. In terms of cut, boxer shorts are generally considered the most stylish of the bunch. For all these reasons we love Zimmerli’s Cotton Boxer Brief in 100% Sea Island cotton. It’s also comfortable on the skin, breathes well, and can withstand repeated washing.

Master the Art of Fit

When it comes to men’s style, fit is everything, especially in suiting, jeans, and pants. It’s very common to find a suit that may not fit you perfectly. Even if something is just a fraction too short in the leg or too long in the arm, still get it tailored. When we wear clothes that are a little bit off, we are aware of it, and it can affect the way we show up in meetings, on dates, and at events. Custom tailoring makes you look put together and feel confident. Take advantage of our complimentary tailoring and make sure your jeans, race wear, and work wardrobe look super sharp.

Take Care Of Your Investments

Make 2022 the year of after-care. If you’ve taken the time to purchase a really good suede jacket, Golden Goose sneakers, or some jewellery, then a little TLC can really extend their shelf life.

Schedule a fortnightly dry cleaning reminder in your phone, give your shoes a buff every three months, and once or twice throughout the year drop your rings off at the jewellers (most will clean your pieces free of charge).
