J.LINDEBERG – We wouldn’t say no if we were you.

Since before the past years of lockdown and quarantine, it was probably the norm for men to turn up to work in a smart suit, collar and tie, or trousers and jacket, and sure there are still companies where this is the dress rule. But, there’s an increasingly strong move towards casual office culture where the rules have somewhat loosened. And what used to be the normal weekend dad attire is now the height of cool, in a strange but glorious turn of events.

In your 20s, 30, and 40s you can pretty much get away with a look at this age, but if perception matters to you, think about it as being a really great time to start building up your seasonal wardrobe that works for you, rather than against you.

The  J.Lindeberg’s new 2021 capsule takes dressing very seriously and hopefully you will too. The launch in Fall/winter ’Aim Higher’ – the first collection designed by the new Head of Design, Neil Lewty. A creative clash with versatile styles double-functioning as urban uniforms, as well as for hiking or sports arenas.

The Chip Hoodie

Your favourite hoodie for lounging about the house needs some context to pull it out of living-room status.Time to surround yourself with this stylish Chip hoodie in green, crafted from mercerised cotton (meaning that it keeps the colour lasting longer and the cloth has better resistance after multiple washings without fading) with a drawstring hood, kangaroo pocket, and a statement embroidered logo text on the chest. 

What better way to treat your hoodies with a little more consideration.

The Alpha Hoodie

As much as we’re all for dressing up when the mood strikes, there’s certainly nothing wrong with opting for low-key for cooler days, and breaking out that beloved hoodie to add an extra layer once the sun is down is a damn good idea. This pristine white slim fit  hoodie is part of the Alpha series, a classic design in that oh-so important super-soft material. So if you want to wear this hoodie like a gentleman, slip it on over a dress shirt and our slim-fit twill trousers. This hoodie has a pouch pocket, Alpha cotton fleece drawstring hood, a heavily brushed inside for that extra warmth, and the embroidered J Lindeberg logo at the front. 

This is one of the key styles this summer/autumn for you, so wear it with some swagger.

Grant Stretch Twill Trousers

Slim fit trousers with sneakers give the hoodie some preppy polish that’s perfect for work and then hanging out with friends for a night out. These trousers are tapered for a flattering silhouette, slanted pockets, always handy, and a logo detail on the waistband. Stretchy fabric for a little give and comfort, sharp in style and feel, though you can go as casual as you like, the reality is you still need to make a good impression, so don’t eschew the tailored look. Bonus points for wearing them without looking like you’re trying too hard.

Flat Wool OverShirt

When the seasons change the key to making a successful transition to the next one comes from layering with a simple move by wearing an overshirt. These jackets are the hardest working layer a man can own. Beautifully made from a luxurious wool blend that gives it a super soft feel and size wise, slightly oversized, to give you room to wear over clothes, two patch pockets, box pleat back and button up front, Overshirts come and go, so it’s important to get it right, this J. Lindeberg one has a slightly longer fit, and in this season’s colour that feels especially rich with stylish options, more touchable and the shape is more boxy and big in a way that’s both modern and practical.

You can wear it over a hoodie or under a coat that will kick up your next season’s look a notch.

Bridge Runner Sneakers

Retro is back in a big way, they say what goes around, comes around, and they’re certainly right with these retro inspired, sport influenced trainers. But if you’re not quite ready to jump in the old style bandwagon these Bridge runner sneakers are the ones. Crafted in a nylon and suede mix and some classic 2-tones laces and logo on the sides. These sneakers are real-life ready and would look good with a suit as they would with our Grant twill trousers or jeans. Meanwhile, wear them to work, wear them on the weekend, or you know, they’re cool enough for a Friday night date.

These very seriously smart sneakers will be the most versatile shoe in your arsenal.
