Brands For Smart-Casual Workwear

Today I’m going to share some thoughts and research on a discussion I recently had with some friends on where to buy office wear clothing in 2022. I’m old enough to have the halcyon memories of wearing a suit and tie to the office. In fact the only thing I truly miss from my days in I.T, was the promiscuous buttoned-up approach I had to office wear. Indeed it was this fervent pursuit to find quality shirts that led me to start my own shirt company, Hawkins & Shepherd.

That in mind let me list some viable brands that I believe to be the doyens of smart casual, perfect clothiers for officer wear in 2022.


David Gandy Wellwear is a concept bringing apparel and wellbeing together in a lifestyle brand that fuses fashion, function and feeling. The 20-piece debut collection offers a definitive range of essentials, including a Short Sleeve Sweat Polo, which would be ideal when paired with the black loopback jogger for a clean smart-casual look.


TM Lewin have created a new versatile collection using premium super-soft fabrics that you can feel comfortable wearing anywhere, whether at home, in a coffee shop, the office or during travel. These are pieces of clothing that you would be proud to wear out after work in a cocktail bar or restaurant.


Sunspel have always been about comfort, and they have recently extended their range from the shirt, to the sweatshirt and now even inclusive in their Riviera range.


Hemingsworth have graduated into one the fine purveyors of smart-casual garments, all made in England.
