PostA Week In The Style Of: Dan Hasby-Oliver

We thought it was high time we caught up with Clarks Men’s Trends Analyst, Dan Hasby-Oliver.

As if predicting and formulating colour and material palettes, identifying key shoes and working to influence the wider Clarks Brand community in product creation weren’t enough, Dan puts his journalistic background to good use as author and editor of Last Style of Defense, an award winning, globally ranked menswear blog that features the best in menswear from around the globe.

Just the right man then to give us his style notes for the season.

THURSDAY. Sport Luxe is no longer a trend but a cultural phenomenon. What started out as the rise of the sneaker as a lifestyle product, rather than just worn for sports or the gym, has now permeated menswear and the wider fashion industry. It can be done in a casual way, or like here, in a more dress way as I've chosen a pair of grey marl sweatpants and teamed them with a white, Oxford shirt and a black double breasted blazer to wear with Edward Limit. The Goodyear Welted construction and superb leather and brogue detail just shout quality and craftsmanship and it's a shoe that can be worn in a variety of ways, taking me from day to night. The contrast of the formality of the shoe and jacket, played down with the sweat pants and a more casual white shirt adds an interesting dynamic that can take me from the office to a bar in Bath or Bristol to meet friends with ease, while giving me the opportunity to tap into a strong and ongoing trend.

      Hi Susan – thank you for your feedback. If you ordered your shoes to Collect From Store you wouldn’t need to enter the promo code. When you collect your items the store will honour the discount – hope this helps!
