Q. What menswear trends should we look out for to make sure we're looking suave?

A. Andrew Webber says: The big trend we noticed on the runways was checks. They are the way to go if you're not afraid to make a statement, with a huge array of colours, scales and textures to choose from. Our advice is to keep it tonal and tailor-fitted – this avoids you being drowned by an excess of detailed fabric. If a full check suit is too bold for your taste, consider a contrasting check waistcoat to complement your block-coloured suit. Once you have your suit sorted, the next step is to think about your neckwear. We love the increasingly popular floral-patterned tie or bow tie. This has been a welcome addition to the menswear industry, pushing the rules set by previous generations. Our guidance would be to avoid mixing too many bold and bright patterns – unless you choose an eclectic look.
