2 For Friday's meeting
You can't beat a nicely fitted double-breasted jacket, and this one by Our Legacy (£315) is a great entry-level option for those still a little wary to dip their toes in the water.

The stretch cotton slim fit chinos by Acne (£160) complete the look, and with a 3% Lycra blend are designed to sit comfortably on anyone, provided you don't have rugby thighs.

These slim leg chinos from Burberry (£149) are a great summer all-rounder - clean, simple and lightweight but still smart.
