While researching for an article on what men should be wearing in the office, I went to vox-pop with the workers in The City of London to ask their opinions. Here is what the man on the street has to say about about getting the workwear look right.

Name: Courtney Charles
Job Title: Fashion Sales Adviser (he was returning from an interview when we met him – he should definitely get the job due to his sartorial knowledge we feel!)

What do you look for in a work-wear suit?
Durability and comfort. Quirkiness, as I like to stand out from other people.

How do you do this?
With textiles, colour and print. My best suit is from Etro, which I got from a boutique on Old Bond Street. It is chocolate brown with a windowpane check in fuchsia. The check is a kind of barbed-wire print.

Where is the suit you are wearing today from?
Zara. The shoes are from YSL and the shirt is T.M. Lewin

What are the unwritten rules for office attire?
A lot of the office workers are wearing separates now, while still being quite formal and smart. To be a little more casual, they might add a checked shirt or loose the tie.

How can office workers add personality through accessories?
A lot of gentlemen are wearing braces now, a pochette or even a summer hat such as a Panama.
