Some TDs wear t-shirts to the Dail and some tech companies allow staff to slope in to the office wearing runners and hoodies. But at EJ’s we believe dressing to impress can lead to success.
We know wearing a suit day in, day out can become monotonous. And in some cases, can even kill your love for the old two-piece.
Here we’ll tell you how you can shake things up and still maintain a solid love affair with formal attire.
Nowadays, there are so many style and colour options available for men, it can be confusing.
That’s according to EJ’s style advisor Tom Clarke.
Like the Little Black Dress for women, a white shirt is key to a man’s wardrobe. And at EJs’, we can even have an option for beer bellies.
For decades’ women have used the Little Black Dress as their go to piece of clothing for any occasion. For lads, there is one item just as versatile - although less celebrated.
That’ll be the white shirt.
The buying team are busy all-year round hunting for new styles at great prices. Here’s how we do it…
Business never sleeps in the fashion trade and even though we’re just over half way through July, the work to prepare for Autumn and Winter season is almost done.
EJ Menswear is dotting the I’s and crossing the t’s on an exciting collection of styles and brands instore and online at ejmeanswear.com from August/September.
It’s all about mix and match. With help and advice from the expert ej menswear team, you can get past the winning post in style.
“We can guarantee that when you leave ej menswear you will be pristine! But I can’t tell you what the story will be at midnight outside Supermacs on day three of the Galway races!”
Shoes tell stories about you – make sure they’re the right ones!
“Strangely enough, I really think that shoes are a communication tool between people.”
So, says one of the world’s most celebrated women’s shoe designers Christian Louboutin, whose expensive creations have cost many a man and woman a small fortune.
His shoes can cost over €1,000 - so it’s unlikely you’ll be too concerned about bagging a set of those bad boys anytime soon. Anyway, men generally don’t look great in heels.
But while the price tag might put people off, Mr Louboutin is right about one thing: shoes tell stories about people.
No amount of good clothes can make up for the wrong pair of shoes; the wrong colour, shape or design can ruin a careful chosen suit, ensemble or any kind of outfit for that matter.
There’s another decent quote about shoes which pops to mind and sits well with the advice that the EJ’s team give people when buying footwear: “Good shoes take you good places.”
But why is that?
With Father’s Day rapidly approaching, it must be admitted that there is a tendency among some people to dismiss it as yet another commercial racket dreamed up by Hallmark to sell cards. If you find yourself thinking along these lines, it’s worth bearing in mind that Father’s Day has been celebrated since the Middle Ages – don’t mention middle age to your Dad though! So, salve your conscience about rampant capitalism and do something nice for the old man.
