If you’re not trying to become a better man each and every day, then I’m not sure what you’re doing at The Noblest Rogue. I am a big believer of constantly looking for personal improvement and growth and am always willing to pass on some advice to you, dear reader. It’s why I’m here. Why I’m doing this.

Following on from last week’s look at the Country Road Spring Collection (here), here is what Trenery have to offer this spring. Trenery offer collections which are sophisticated, modern in approach and timeless in style. Their clothes have an easy elegance. It’s in the flattering cut and the subtle details, the colour palette and the luxe fabrications.

Why wouldn’t you devote an entire book to a man who looked like he belonged in stylish clothes?
