Menswear Monday

This week's Menswear Monday features the patriarch of one of the most stylish families - David Beckham.

His style has matured in class as he has with age, and he is at the peak of his personal style game. Pictured here with style-queen wife, Victoria, at the Another Man Magazine party shows this clearly. Here's how you can recreate the look, on any budget:

This Paul Smith London shirt (£145) is quite inconspicuous, as the pattern can only really be seen properly when up close and personal. The fine pin spot print in white changes up the solid black fabric, with the button up pocket adding a sense of practicality.

I have chosen these black slim-fit denim jeans from Rag and Bone (£140). Levi may be the go-to denim brand for most people, but this brand always offers up quality and well-cut lines. They are a solid colour, with no distress in the denim, which is in keeping with the clean look created by David.

Now, the football star may have gone for the classic black leather boot to finish up his look, but I've chosen to show you a pair in more of an ox-blood shade. These boots from Maison Martin Margiela are a bit of an extravagance at £535 but they will bring a bit of colour to your otherwise all-black ensemble.

On to the high street and the ever reliable Asos has come through again, with this offering being a steal at £25. The navy will be a nice change up from the black, but this shade is still dark enough to match the mysteriousness of going goth. The fine spotted pattern changes the look of the outfit and keeps it quite youthful.

As a regular buyer of Topshop jeans, I can vouch for their quality and durability, and I can say quite certainly that the same can be said for their Topman denim range. At £30, these are well worth investing your pennies in and the slim-fit makes them more practical than their ever-popular skinny counterparts. You can actually bend your knees from the get go rather than having to break them in.

At £40, these leather Chelsea boots from Asos are a fraction of the cost of their designer alternatives. The ox-blood colour has been really quite popular over the last months, and are a good wintery alternative to black. The Chelsea style of these boots are a classic trend that never goes out of fashion, working just as well with a casual outfit as they do for a more formal occasion.
