Smart Menswear | Wool Coat With Skinny Jeans & Ankle Boots – La Redoute Brand Ambassador Post

Smart grey coat, shirt and tie with skinny jeans and boots (over 40 menswear)
Now for something completely different: my second ever menswear post, featuring the husband! Many of you know that since Keith first appeared on my blog in May he has started his own style blog, Silver Londoner – if you haven’t checked it out yet then please, please do so (I know I’m biased but it’s pretty great). There don’t seem to be many style blogs for 40+ men featuring easy-to-wear outfits so we think he’s filling a niche right from the word go. It’d be great if you left a comment to say hi, he’d love to hear from you.

I’m featuring him for this month’s La Redoute brand ambassador post because I thought I’d talk about their excellent menswear range – Keith’s bought several things from them in the past and has always been really impressed with the quality and choice. This month I treated him instead of myself with these achingly cool . They’re just about my favourite style of boots for men at the moment, and I can report back from Silver Londoner that they were incredibly comfy from the second he tried them on. We both loved the slightly worn look to them, and they look so, so great with skinny (but not super-skinny) jeans.

He decided to go semi-smart that day – he’s in his element in the autumn with his peacoats and blazers. This grey wool coat (a few years old but still ultra stylish) looked great with the blue shirt and red woollen tie. I have to admit I think this is one of my favourite looks on him… great for any age, not just 40-somethings!

Do you have a look for your other half that you favour over all others? Whether it’s a classic white t-shirt and jeans combo or a smart three-piece suit, do share in the comments!

    Awesome choice you made with these boots, dearest Catherine…I'm sure Keith is feeling very lucky to be married to a La Redoute brand ambassador right now!! πŸ˜‰ Lately, my hubby is pretty much LIVING in his trainers and sweatpants; I'm so proud of his weight loss efforts…but seriously!! I'd love to see him wearing something "smarter" just a bit more often!! XOXO

      Then show him this, Monika – though he's probably seen it already on Keith's blog!! Thank you thank you, I'll pass on your compliments x

      Thanks Patti – I do love a smart look on men, and this really is one of my faves on him ;))

    He is so well dressed. I promote Keith whenever I can.

      Aww Greetje thank you – and thank you from Keith too! x

    Keith is awesome! I love the outfit. I would tweak it with regular cut jeans and untuck the tie, but Keith completely pulls it off the way it is.

    • 3 November 2014 / 10:06 pm

      Mary that's so nice of you, thank you! I think the tie is untucked, but maybe it looks tucked in because it isn't pointed at the end… no matter, it's a great basic outfit that would suit most men I think πŸ™‚

    Your husbands outfit looks great! I love everything about the jacket and the boots were a great investment, so stylish. πŸ™‚

    Take care,
    Daniella xx
