Introducing POLITIX: tailored to go from day to night and dusk till dawn

With summer on the horizon, it’s time to make sure your wardrobe is ready for all things work and play. That’s why we’re reveling the arrival of POLITIX online and instore. Directional, fashion-forward and suave as menswear labels come, POLITIX is known for its fit and tailoring, along with its ultra-sharp, James Bond-worthy attention to detail. 

To celebrate the drop of POLITIX’s spring summer 2017/2018 collection, we spoke to head of design Paula McMahon about the reasons why POLITIX is a must-have summer staple.  

1. THE BEST OF BLACK TIE

JONES: We’re coming into the silly season, a time where standard suits just won’t cut it. What kinds of daring statements will we find in your spring/summer collection?

PAULA MCMAHON: Velvets are strong in our tuxedo jackets, including intricate brocade burn outs, rich hues, floral and geo prints. But for a more pared back look we always have sharp black and white styles in our collection. Layer your tux jacket with our great variety of detailed formal tuxedo shirts and slim tailored pants. Finish off your black tie outfit with a pair of our new Black Tie high shine formal shoes and you are ready to take on the town.


2. THE MODERN TAILORING

J: Tell us more about your latest Modern Tailoring Collection. Why do these pieces feel so good to wear in summer?

PM: Our recently launched Modern Tailoring Collection has been met with huge success. The new clean slim line cut, shorter more fitted jackets and pants, softer tailoring and half-lining all make ideal summer wear. Designed as separates, the pieces are perfect for suiting or pairing back with chinos and our Modern Tailoring shirting. A younger, fresher take on suiting.


3. THE NEW DRESS CASUAL

J: This season POLITIX has injected life into office attire – half-lined lightweight blazers in fresh colours and textures, printed shirts and slim chinos. Any tips for the guys on how to nail desk to dawn style?

PM: Start with our range of stretch knit blazers and pair back with our slim stretch chinos and print shirts. Style Tip: Work a dark chino with a lighter colour blazer or a mid-blue/bright blue blazer with a light coloured chino. Contrast keeps it fresh for summer.

Our attention to detail makes our geo and floral print stretch shirting ideal for the office. After hours, open your collar and roll up your sleeves to reveal the hidden detailing for style that takes you to post-work drinks.


4. THE FRIDAY NIGHT SHIRTS

J: POLITIX invites men to bet big on print and pattern this summer, for maximum impact with fewer layers. How should men style these eye-catching prints?

PM: Our Red Label shirts are definitely your go-to shirt. These bold prints and florals do all the talking. Pair back with a plain stretch chino or modern tailored pant. Ready to wear. Time to party.
