    Frederick Thomas London Top Tips



    Smart Casual



    When in doubt, smart casual! You don't want to be overdressed (unless you are dinning at a seriously swanky restaurant!) but you don't want to be under dressed either. Meet in the middle with a smart casual dress code. Always aim for a well fitted blazer, an essential in any gentleman's wardrobe. Pair with dark black jeans, brown brogues or loafers and a  ironed shirt. And if you need to smarten up even more, add a beautiful pocket square or a pair of cufflinks to give you that extra edge!


    Think Pink



    The colour pink represents care, compassion and love, so no wonder it's a must on Valentine's day! Show your loved one how much you care and love them this Valentine's day and think pink! From pink ties to pink socks, Fredrick Thomas London have got you covered!


    Fabulous in Florals



    Valentine's day wouldn't be complete without a dozen red roses. But why stop there, the more floral's the better! A real red rose boutonniere is a textbook look for Valentine's day. But if you don't have time to forage for real roses, go for a floral lapel pin instead. Much easier! Or you can opt in for a floral tie and pocket square to finish off your look. Spoilt for choice!


    Detail is Key



    Like your relationship, it's important to pay attention to every single little detail when suiting up. A small and subtle pair of beautiful cufflinks can go a long way. Check out our Frederick Thomas London accessories to ensure every detail is accounted for this Valentine's day.
