Menswear Monday (on a Tuesday, oops!)

This week I'm featuring the handsome Oliver Cheshire, seen here at the Original Man launch by designer Patrick Grant. The British model has gone for a relaxed yet smart look for the launch, displaying the style credentials he's no doubt picked up over the past 11 years of modelling. He has mixed up colours rather than go for a pattern, which is quite a minimalist approach to dressing and attracts a different sort of attention to an in-your-face design.

This 100% cotton blazer from Paul Smith Jeans (£215) is a very comfortable fit and the cosy-feeling fabric makes it ideal for these colder winter nights. Although Oliver has opted for a long-line blazer style, I think this shorter cut will look just as chic.

Paul Smith has delivered again with a roll-neck jumper, this time from the 'London' diffusion line. At £300 and being 100% cashmere, this sweater is the ultimate in luxurious comfort. The beige colour may seem a bit dated to some but it is a highly flexible neutral, matching well with any other. If we're going to look at Oliver with a racy mind (which I totally did), from afar it appears he has nothing on underneath his blazer, creating a sense of intrigue about his outfit.

This 34% cotton blazer from River Island (£65) is a couple shades darker than Oliver's, listed as charcoal, but still has a similar casual cut. It goes well with the black trousers and is in keeping with the smart-casual feel of this outfit.

At £22, this roll-neck jumper from Burton is a steal! Again, this camel shade is darker than the lighter beige of our outfit inspiration, but this isn't an issue as it matches well with the darker grey of the high-street blazer above. The roll-neck is very practical for the cool temperatures, as well as giving your relaxed outfit an edge of sophistication.
