A Lesson In Style: Will Tresidder

In a style landscape much less restrictive and more relaxed, finding the right office-appropriate, life-approved balance can reveal itself to be quite an arduous task. So, how does one find a happy medium between strict workwear and pared-down tailoring? Here, we enlist the sharp eye of Will Tresidder and discuss how he makes the smart-casual game, easy.

On a typical work day,
how would you sum up your style?

Haha, well this is an interesting one that ties in with how much time I have on my hands, how warm it is and my mood. I shift from street grunge to quite preppy. I work for myself, so sometimes I will cruise around my office with no shoes on. Don’t judge.

With dress codes
becoming more relaxed
in the workplace, how do
you shift from business to
smart-casual?

As much as I love to suit up, it’s not always necessary for me and my business. But if it were me, I would change the brogues for some sneakers. Finding some fun in shirts is always a good play.

The sensible dresser
usually sticks to a core
base of neutrals. What
would you suggest for the
man looking to mix up his
tailoring?

I agree, I’m a massive fan of navy. Throw on some navy check pants or play with some different textured fabrics. Cord, linen, etc.

What is the key
investment to make
this autumn-winter?

I love a long wool coat – it makes a suit look a million dollars.
