Mr Porter currently has a sale on and it presents a solid opportunity to pick up some fine wardrobe additions at a fraction of their original price. Leave the post Christmas/New Year sales to the masses and shop online from the comfort of your office chair/beach/bed/yacht because arguing with a shop assistant about the slight stain on the arm of the shirt you just picked up from under the rack is not the way a gentleman should shop. We had a quick cruise through the offerings and came up with a few of our favourite items. (Click on the image for a link to each item).

Crafted from rich navy woven-wool and trimmed with brown leather, Alexander Olch’s braces are a timeless way to streamline tailored outfits. They promise a smooth, sharp finish and offer a dapper alternative to a belt when you want a refined silhouette.
