A smart casual dress code opens up a huge variety of options. It also causes a lot of concern and confusion for many men - the majority of us know how to dress down (jeans and tee shirt), or dress up (suit, shirt and tie)... but that bit in between is a like the Bermuda Triangle for many who just don't know where to start.

Happy New Year!

So, it’s New Year Resolution month – the month when you need to focus with maximum effort on all those resolutions you made last weekend, to turn them from a wish list into an actual habit that will last year long!

For anyone whose wardrobe is becoming one of life’s annoyances, this is the perfect time to have a quick audit and clear out. I’m doing exactly this myself, having gotten tired of the pile of ties, shirts, jackets and suits at the back of the wardrobe that I haven’t worn for 2 years or so for various reasons. It all must go.

A perfectly tailored suit ought to be a piece of everyone's wardrobe, regardless of whether you are a man or woman. A lot of organizations want their employees to dress with respect to a particular dress code, usually a type of business suit. A valid reason why businesses prefer their workers to adhere to a more formal dress code is the representatives of the company are exactly that: representatives of the company! And most business want to appear to be at the very least competent and confident.

According to Ryan Bingham, played to perfection by George Clooney in Up In The Air, avoiding people with children, the elderly and certain ethnic groups is a must when attempting to travel on business efficiently.

I finally caught the enjoyable Guy Ritchie "reboot" of classic TV Series The Man From U.N.C.L.E. starring our very own Henry Cavill as Napoleon Solo.

I fear it won't get a sequel because the box office return wasn't so great by today's blockbuster standards, but I did like his outfits. Actually through the whole film there were only three suits. (The second blue plaid was recycled sans jacket for the last part of the movie), but here they are - fodder for your 2016 wardrobe wish list.

So there I was on Monday night halfway through the first showing of SPECTRE at my local IMAX when I realised my brain was more focused on the clothes than the plot line. Not that there was much of one (the plot line that is)... more on that later, I am currently torn between posting my review and not, since I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't seen the film yet.

As featured in the February 2015 issue of Canary Wharf Magazine, here are my style DO NOTs - from the shoes that won't get you hired to the sunglasses that will make you look like a fool:

1. Don't wear pointed shoes. Ever. They are a statement of fashion, not style and do not work for most men. If you are trying to work your way up the career ladder, your senior leaders will find your penchant for pointy shoes troubling. Trust me, I work for a lot of senior business leaders and it's their number one bugbear when it comes to appearance.
