Following its popularity last season, the shearling jacket is still worth the investment, as this warm and stylish piece continues to trickle into 2023 fashion. Emporio Armani showed a sweeping shearling-lined coat inspired by aviators of the 1930s in their recent Milan show.

Savile Row suit designer, Kabiru Abu, tells us the latest suit trends
"Grooms getting hitched in the next couple of years have a lot to look forward to," says Savile Row suit designer, Kabiru Abu. "Gone are the days when the bride wore white, and no one remembered what the groom wore. This year and into 2024, colour will play a larger part than ever. Stand out trends include beautiful shades of red and green sitting alongside a selection of blues and greys.
"Tone on tone, a monochromatic effect is an excellent choice to achieve an exquisitely dapper look this season," adds Kabiru. "However, if grooms are reluctant to try bolder colours, off-whites and soft camel shades are always going to look stylish."
Kabiru's keen eye for detail and his exemplary customer service mean he has quietly amassed clients, including Arsenal's Thomas Partey and Sambi Lokonga, World Champion Boxers' David Haye and Anthony Joshua and Grammy Award winning singers and music video producers Bebe Winans and Dapps.

Spinnaker Watches has added a new addition to its Fleuss Collection
The Fleuss Automatic Marlborough Limited Edition watch is a new addition to Spinnaker Watches' Fleuss collection, which pays tribute to Henry Fleuss, a celebrated diving pioneer.
Spinnaker Watches pay tribute to Fleuss for his contribution to the advancement of diving technology. Whilst working at sea, Fleuss realised the need for more advanced equipment as he saw his team expend great amounts of effort and time with cumbersome equipment. In 1878, Fleuss conceptualised the cutting-edge equipment, known today as the David Submarine Escape Apparatus, that both compressed oxygen and absorbed carbon dioxide thus freeing the diver from external support. Fleuss' invention paved the way in World War II maritime warfare and is widely recognised as the first practical closed-circuit breathing apparatus.

Men's formalwear trends for 2023
Grant Durrell, the senior menswear designer, and Mike Dobell, CEO, of Dobell, shared their predictions for the next big formalwear trends for 2023 weddings.
Grant Durrell commented: "Classic tuxedo and morning suit will continue to be staples, but we'll see slimmer fit versions of these modern classics come in for 2023. Formal dressing is also on the rise, with inspiration coming from The Crown on Netflix and with the Royal family in the spotlight, and a double-breasted dove grey or gold buff waistcoat is at the top of the list for this trend.
"The most popular colours for men's wedding suits are blue, grey, and black, however, relaxed tailoring with bold and bright colours is also expected to come through in spring/summer 2023. In particular, pastels – including pinks, blues, and greens – will be trending.
