THE DENIM BLAZER (left)

With a nod to the looser silhouette that’s currently dominating menswear, a denim blazer has the formality of one in a traditional tailor’s cloth, but without the rigid and restrictive interlinings.

THE DENIM SHIRT(right)

A formal suit can be softened by replacing a stiff-collared-business shirt with a lightweight denim chambray version. Accessorise with a soft rather than structured tie.

THE DENIM JEAN (left)

Dress-down Fridays and slipping dress codes mean jeans are now a realistic option. Boss not convinced? A darker fabric and slimmer-fit might win them round.

THE DENIM GILET (right)

With three-piece tailoring in favour, take the opportunity to flash a waistcoat in an unconventional contrast fabric such as denim. It’ll help to relax the overall silhouette.
