The style lessons we can learn from Robert Redford

Redford: the gentleman who men wanted to be, and women wanted to be with

Robert Redford: one of the most naturally and effortlessly stylish gentlemen on the planet. This is a man who could rock just about anything he wanted and get away with this. Always with the right amount of confidence – never crossing the line to arrogance – Redford understood style and wore each outfit in a way that made men want to be him and women want to be with him. And boy, did he succeed.

Never underestimate the white tee

Every gentleman should have at least one white t-shirt in his wardrobe. The right tee is the ultimate basic; a piece that can be worn over and over again for each and every occasion. It often goes amiss, but for no good reason. Invest now and wear forever, gentlemen.

A watch is always a gentleman's best accessory

Whether your budget reaches a Timex or a Rolex, having a beautiful watch on your wrist is the easiest way to set you apart from the crowd. It’s also one of the best investments a gentleman can make; buying a classic timepiece will last you a lifetime and generations after you.

Never fear a hat

A hat is a daunting accessory to try, we appreciate that, but it’s own worth wearing. Try a number of different styles, find one that works and let your confidence do the talking.

Don't be afraid to try new trends

Whether you’re going for a fedora, a slick pair of new trainers or something a bit more out-there, don’t be afraid to try new trends. Sticking to what you know will only mean you end up in a style rut – something that no gentleman wants to end up in.

Find a pair of sunglasses that suit you - and stick to them

Finding the right pair of sunglasses for your face is difficult, but once you’ve nailed it, you need to stick to it. Don’t get on board with passing trends when it comes to eyewear – stick to the classics and let the rest fall into place.
