  • How To Buy A Shirt

    As a reliable wardrobe staple in every modern man’s wardrobe, a classic shirt is a great investment piece that can deliver impeccable style without too much thought. It can, however, be difficult to know how to buy a shirt that will suit your individual style and body shape. Today at Potters of Buxton we’ve put together a convenient men’s shirt buying guide to address any questions on how to buy a shirt and ways to style your designer shirts.

    What to look for when buying a shirt
    Buying yourself a brand new shirt can be relatively easy if you consider the following elements:

    Get your measurements: For a comfortable fit, it’s important to find out the circumference of your neck so that the collar can fit perfectly, allowing you that all important room to breathe. Next, measure the length of your arms for sleeve length (it may work best if you get someone to do this for you). Dress shirts tend to be sized by neck and sleeve size, though other shirts can be labelled as S, M, L, etc.

    Select your shirt style and fabric: It may be a surprise to learn that there are many different men’s shirt designs to choose from, including Oxford, Poplin, Herringbone and Broadcloth which all reflect the various fabrics and collar styles used. There are brushed cotton shirts for a warmer feel and lightweight cotton shirts that are ideal for summer, not forgetting the various fits.

    Choose your fit: Getting the fit of your shirt right will definitely help improve your confidence when wearing it. Go for a flattering fit that will be good for your body type to retain shape; a slim fit or tailored shirt is a good option that will also allow you to use the shirt as a layering piece.

    Decide on features: Many men’s shirts have additional features, such as pockets on the chest, pleats, multiple sleeve fastenings and various button types. The usual look of men’s shirts tends to be patterned or plain, with check shirts being a very popular option that can work well with any smart or casual occasions.

    After deciding on the kind of shirt you’d like to buy, why not consider the different ways of styling a shirt?

    Dressing up a casual outfit
    When the dress code requires a smart-casual look, a patterned shirt can be a great go-to piece. The versatility of many shirts means that they can be teamed perfectly with trousers, jeans and chinos. Styling a short-sleeved shirt can be easy by simply wearing it unbuttoned over a t-shirt and teaming the look with a pair of denim jeans. We recommend a patterned shirt from our range of Olymp Shirts to add that extra dimension to the outfit whilst looking on trend.

    Layering up
    A fashionable way to wear a shirt is to layer it underneath a jumper or pullover for a chic look that works wonderfully during the colder months. With the collar pulled out of the jumper and folded over, it’s a classic look which can be completed with jeans or trousers equally well! We love the check long sleeve shirts from Crew Clothing that offer many different colour combinations as a good way of introducing colour into your more formal clothing collection. The additional coloured checks of the collar of a Crew Clothing shirt will compliment a plain jumper perfectly for a great autumn and winter outfit option.

    A shirt for the office
    When it comes to workwear, a shirt is a staple formal option for many men. Our range of Calvin Klein shirts should be the first place you look for the perfect formal wear for your office wardrobe. Fitted shirts in an array of different colours and patterns, including traditional check and white shirts, can be the perfect accompaniment to a smart suit or a blazer and trousers ensemble. The Calvin Klein shirts and men’s Seidensticker modern shirts are essential for those men who like to keep things simple yet stylish when it comes to workwear.

    Looking after your shirt
    A good place to start when it comes to looking after your new shirt is to ensure that you hang it up correctly in your wardrobe. This way your shirt will retain its shape and quality, whilst keeping it crease-free and ready to be worn. It goes without saying that every shirt will require a good ironing after it has been cleaned to smooth out any creases and to keep it feeling fresh. There are many guides online on how to iron a shirt which can help show you the best way to iron a long sleeve shirt or short sleeve shirt effectively. Another simple option is to choose a non-iron style shirt which requires no ironing at all!

    Once you’re certain which shirt style you’d like after reading through our points in this men’s shirt buying guide, take some time to browse through our complete men’s shirts department for inspiration and plenty of chic choices.

    If you’re planning on taking her out for a lovely Mother’s Day meal this year, why not make it extra special with a new handbag for the occasion? We love the floral charm of the Joules Darby saddle bag, the perfect print for spring. The floral design has a contrasting colourful lining and inner zip pocket to keep valuables safe, plus it can be worn as both a cross-body bag or over one shoulder.

    If she prefers a shopper, you can take your pick from the fabulous Seasalt range! Made from 100% jute, these bags are perfect for shopping or taking lunch to work. With plenty of prints to choose from, it’s easy to find the ideal one to match her personality.

  • Dog Walking Outfit Ideas

    There are undeniably many highs and lows of owning a dog, from the unavoidable mess that comes with getting a new puppy to having a loyal friend that will be there for you through thick and thin. A truly enjoyable aspect of having a dog is the chance to get out into the great outdoors regularly to walk them! As our pampered pooches need to be walked no matter the weather, what do you wear for a winter dog walk?

    At Potters Of Buxton we’re gearing up for the great Crufts 2018 show (8th-11th March) and we’re getting some inspiration ahead of the dog show on what to wear on our favourite dog walks.


    Whether you’re embarking on a quick walk around the block with your dog on a morning before work or taking the time to travel somewhere further afield for a good long walk at the weekend, there’s always a great opportunity during the winter to coordinate your accessories. Now, we don’t expect him to don a pair of gloves to match your own premium leather gloves, but if you have a fine haired hound, why not wear matching coloured jackets? You can both keep warm whilst you walk whilst looking effortlessly stylish with your coordinated look!

    Layer up

    A classic example of a great dog walking outfit for any time of the year involves layers. We love the look of a gilet which can provide that extra removable layer of warmth that can be worn over long sleeved tops and knitwear easily. Another failsafe outerwear option is the hooded jacket that will keep you happily walking your dog throughout rain showers. In our men’s coats department, we’ve got some great gilets and hooded parkas from Farah Jeans that will suit the stylish gentleman perfectly. The mens parka has been lined with soft fleece which is ideal for keeping the chill at bay on cold dog walks, whilst the black gilet is a great springtime jacket option. Opt for a cable knit jumper underneath the gilet in a contrasting colour and add jeans to make the look casual yet smart.

    Ladies looking to stay on trend whilst walking around the park with their beloved dog will love a patterned mac that will brighten up any chilly day. If you and your family enjoy a country walk with the dog then why not opt for a classic countrywear option of a quilted jacket? Lightweight yet warm, a quilted jacket from Joules from our ladies jackets range can be just what you need to elevate the look of your dog walking outfit! A versatile Joules quilted jacket with zipped pockets ensures a flattering silhouette. If your style is a little more vibrant, then we suggest the floral button up mac from Brakeburn that gives a little summertime addition to a simple jumper and jeans outfit for your dog walking activities. Team your quilted jacket or floral mac with a pair of Chelsea boots or wellies to complete the look.

    Always remember to go for coats and jackets with pockets to keep those all important dog treats at hand!

    Load up on knits

    Underneath your dog walking coat, it’s always a good idea to have a base layer of a long sleeved top or a reliable piece of knitwear (or both depending on how long your dog walk in the cold might be!). Our men’s knitwear offers some excellent cosy jumpers and sweatshirts that men of any age can wear with confidence. A spring morning walk wearing a Crew Clothing collared sweatshirt teamed with straight leg jeans and boots is a simple yet effective dog walking outfit that can only be made better by the addition of a warm jacket or gilet like the ones above. Wear a Crew Clothing sweatshirt alone or over a t-shirt for an extra thermal layer.

    In our ladies knitwear collection there are some fashionable womens jumpers and cardigans to be explored that can bring a pop of colour or style to any casual outfit before heading outside. Keep the look on trend with nautical stripes or reduce the need for a scarf with a funnel neck jumper that will keep you even warmer when out and about. The ribbed detailing on the incredibly chic Fransa Zuvic funnel neck jumpers keep the jumper slim fitting, making them a great layering piece underneath coats and jackets. Team with leggings and knee high boots for a comfortable yet seasonal dog walking outfit option.

    Finishing touches

    We all know how bitingly cold it can be during this time of the year, even when we’re approaching spring! Whether you’re walking the dog along the windswept beach or hiking in the woods, adding hats, scarves and gloves can make such a difference to your dog walking experience. At Potters Of Buxton, we’ve got a fantastic selection of mens gloves which includes sophisticated Dents driving gloves in supple leather and suede which can be worn whenever needed! Leather gloves can really elevate an outfit whilst keeping hands mobile and warm. For women, our appealing ladies scarves collection can be just what you need to finish the look of an outfit! Style with a matching hat and you’ve got a stylish look that’s ready to go.

    No matter where you and your dog prefer to walk, make sure that you exercise in style with the wide range of fashionable menswear and womenswear pieces from Potters Of Buxton.

  • How To Buy Lingerie As A Gift For Valentine’s Day

    Whether it’s your first ever Valentine’s Day together or one of many, it can be difficult to know what gift to buy the one you love. Lingerie is an absolute classic gift option for days linked with romance, and with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, Potters of Buxton have put together a lingerie buying guide to help you with buying a special set of lingerie for your partner. A Valentine’s Day gift she’ll love to receive, putting some thought into your choice of lingerie for your significant other will certainly put you in her good books!

    How do you buy lingerie?

    Here at Potters of Buxton, we stock many great ladies underwear and lingerie brands that have created exceptional designs which are bound to appeal to a whole host of individual tastes. It’s important to have an understanding of her personal style and preferences when it comes to underwear, or you’ll soon notice that your special gifts have been relegated to the back of her underwear drawer!

    So, what do you need to consider before buying lingerie as a gift? Here are a few basic pointers that might help you in deciding which bra and pant set to invest in:

    • Her style: If the lady in your life is all about floral lace soft cup bras, and you get her a plain white cotton t-shirt bra, you may encounter a problem. Consider materials and types of bra she prefers; balconette bra, thongs and silk, or push up bra, briefs and lace? She’ll enjoy the fact that you’ve taken notice of her usual underwear style and deem your gift as thoughtful if you match the new lingerie pieces to her personal tastes.


    • Her size: No matter how long you’ve been together, it’s often true that you’ve simply never noticed what size bra she wears! Don’t worry though because this can be remedied by doing some research - her underwear drawer. Sizing is obviously an important element when looking for a beautiful bra and knicker set, so take a look at the labels on her existing garments and take note of the bra cup size and underwear size.


    From sexy to practical, there’s a whole world of ladies lingerie you’re about to uncover in order to find the perfect lingerie for a Valentine’s Day gift!


    First up, let’s consider the classic ladies lingerie styles as it’s a safe choice that many women would enjoy wearing, even if it is just for special occasions! A brand which doesn’t get much more traditional in terms of sophisticated lingerie design is Triumph with their range of ultra wearable women’s bras and briefs in appealing colours and cuts.

    Treat the lady in your life to the perfect Valentine’s Day lingerie with the Triumph Magic Boost Velvet bra which offers a lovely combination of materials in a flattering silhouette. The deep plunge ensures that this bra is suitable for lower necklines whilst the magic wire concept keeps things comfortable enough to be worn all day long. A black bra is a staple underwear option, but the romantic mix of velvet and lace really elevate the look. The velvet section on the lower part of the cup keeps the look sophisticated and appealing to all tastes!


    If you’ve done your research and found that your partner loves pretty bras and underwear with floral detailing and bows, then lingerie brand Panache may be the one to go to for your Valentine’s Day gift. Fuller busted ladies will love the Panache Andorra full cup bra which provides essential support, padding and a slight stretch in it’s fabric, without compromising on a truly feminine finish with lace overlays and scalloped edging. Teamed with the chic lace shorts and this Panache lingerie pairing will no doubt go down a storm!


    Take things up a notch with some seductive yet tasteful lingerie. Boost her confidence with a matching bra and knickers set in beautiful lace or a slightly sheer bra for a sensual look. Our range of Gossard lingerie will upgrade her current underwear collection no end with their feminine sheer moulded bras which give an attractive plunging shape. The Gossard bras display glossy fabric cups that are undetectable underneath clothing whilst giving support and comfort throughout the day. Complete the sheer fabric look by pairing with a Gossard brief or short which again offer no visible sign underneath clothes.

    Gossard also delivers a stunning lace bra option with their sophisticated approach to their lingerie and their elegant Gossard Gypsy bra. Offering natural support with full lace cups and underwiring, this style of bra may be suited for those with a fuller boost who seek more support. Pretty details with ruching on the straps and bow decoration keeps the padded bra looking feminine and elegant. A comfortable yet sexy underwear option has to be from this fabulous selection of Gossard lingerie.

    We hope that you’re feeling prepared to invest in those special lingerie pieces for your partner to enjoy this Valentine’s Day after viewing our helpful tips and favourite items from our womens lingerie department.

  • How To Dress For Cold Weather

    We’ve got a little while to wait yet before the chill of winter is lifted and we can begin to embrace the spring season, so wrapping up warm is more often than not our usual routine! Transitional clothing between the seasons can be unclear, especially with leaks of sunshine coming through the clouds but still a crisp chill in the air. Luckily, there are so many ways to dress for cold weather and still look super stylish, so with the help of our designer brands, here at Potters of Buxton we’ve put together a simple but effective guide on how to dress for those cold days.

    Winter basics

    It goes without saying the types of clothing we reach for during the winter season; snuggly jumpers, thick jackets and long coats to mention a few. But could your current winter wardrobe do with an update of fresh designs with some brand new pieces? 

    True basics always come down to underwear and those undergarments provide the first baselayer of a winter outfit. Thermal underwear and clothing are carefully designed to ensure the utmost warmth, whilst also allowing the skin to breathe. Our selection of thermal underwear includes simple thermal t-shirts, long johns and long sleeve t-shirts which can be worn underneath jumpers and jeans for extra protection against the elements when you’re out and about.

    Jumpers and cardigans are more winter wardrobe essentials that are often our go-to finishing touches to an outfit during the colder season. Tapping into that layering trend, whether you opt for chunky knits or lightweight materials that still provide an extra layer, our ladies knitwear department will supply you with some high quality options to choose from. From v-neck jumpers to stylish striped sweatshirts and long line cardigans, the beauty of knitwear is that it can be done in so many various designs. Simply team a cardigan or jumper with a t-shirt, jeans and over the knee boots for a classic winter ensemble that is ideal for casual days. So if you like feminine fine knit cardigans or modern Breton stripe jumpers, there will be something for you to enjoy this winter with our ladies knitwear selection.

    Never leave the house into the cold without a good quality jacket or coat to ward off the colder weather! Consider the usual elements of the winter season that can include rain, a good waterproof jacket or coat with a hood and deep pockets can be just the thing to keep you toasty. Our range of mens coats and jackets has all you need when it comes to outerwear. For those mild days, we love the gilet style jacket which keeps the body warm whilst allowing your arms to be free, whilst a puffer jacket with hood will certainly keep off any wind chill and rain you encounter on your travels. For extra country style points, opt for a quilted jacket that brings a luxury edge with it’s zip jacket fastening and micro fleece lining.

    Warm accessories

    Sometimes it’s the accessories that will keep you warm the most, with gloves, hats and scarves being staple winter accessories during a cold snap. A clothing brand which offers to cater for all winter accessory needs is Dents with their cosy range of hats, scarves and gloves for men and women, all in beautiful designs that will add a fashion element to your outdoor look.

    Our range of Dents womens hats features a great selection of playful bobble hats and patterned beanies which are ideal for popping on before heading outside. Cable knit hats embellished with a colourful pom pom will add the perfect finishing touch to a winter outfit whilst keep your head and ears warm! Find yourself a knitted scarf to snuggle up in from the collection of womens scarves from Dents that also features pom poms, cable knit material and eternity scarf designs. Coordinate your winter accessories by picking a colour to feature in your main outfit, maybe a jumper or a cardigan, which will match the colour in your woolly hat or gloves for a look that will look fashionable, even when you’re all wrapped up warm.

    Every man should have a reliable pair of leather gloves for winter, and the soft, supple Dents gloves for men certainly deliver a traditional look. Leave a pair of Dents driving gloves in the car to pop on during the fresh morning commute to work and enjoy the premium leather and cut out back which provide a suitably classic look that any sophisticated man will relish. The unlined crochet back driving gloves from Dent are an interesting alternative and can be worn as everyday gloves during the winter too!

    As you can see from our guide on how to dress for cold weather, there are various ways to look stylish whilst keeping warm. Be sure to browse through our complete clothing departments for men and women, and upgrade your jumpers, coats and winter accessories with Potters of Buxton today.

  • Designer Spotlight: Björn Borg Underwear

    The Swedish clothing brand Björn Borg, aptly named after the infamous tennis legend, is an established brand that thrives within the underwear industry. Recognised for changing the history of men’s underwear, alongside a little grand slam help from the legend himself, Björn Borg is synonymous with creating fresh and innovative designs all across Europe.

    A Brief History

    During his prime, Björn Borg was the embodiment of both style and finesse. Men wanted to be him; women wanted to be with him. Throughout the decades, Borg’s legacy has continued, as the Björn Borg underwear range represents the notorious Borg style within a contemporary brand.

    Borg’s iconic, rock-star image and rebellious demeanour was the inspiration behind their eye-catching products, in particular, their underwear. Björn Borg was a rebel both on and off the court, and he transformed the stereotypical image of tennis players during that time. His long hair and iconic headband had not previously been seen within the tennis world, and it was this rebellion which sparked the influence behind their brand. This remains part of their heritage today, as they continue to create daring, sexy underwear but with a unique, sporty twist.

    Finding the right pair to suit your Lifestyle

    At Potters of Buxton, we understand that most men don’t put a huge amount of effort or research into buying new underwear. Just because not everyone can see your underwear doesn’t make it any less important. Your thoughts aren’t visible either, but they’re still important. For this reason, we have come up with a useful guide on how Björn Borg underwear can be adapted to suit your unique lifestyle and implemented into your daily wardrobe essentials. Björn Borg takes pride in combining comfort with functionality, and their signature bold prints push away from traditional, everyday styles of underwear.

    Determine your preferred materials

    Firstly, it’s important to establish what type of material you prefer when it comes to your underwear. Björn Borg create underwear in a large selection of materials to meet your individual needs. At Potters of Buxton, we believe that finding comfort should be your first priority; that’s why the majority of Björn Borg underwear that we supply is created using a suitable blend of cotton and elastane, allowing for high levels of stretch and comfort. Choose a fabric that you know suits your body shape and skin type; one that provides maximum enjoyment and won’t irritate your skin.

    Consider your environment

    The surroundings in which you wear your underwear is an aspect not to be overlooked. For instance, if you live in the countryside and frequently enjoy winter walks, it might be an idea to invest in underwear created with sleek materials, such as wool or lycra, as they will naturally thermalise your body, providing you with extra insulation and comfort. Similarly, you should opt for tighter fitting boxers during the colder months to provide additional warmth. If you’re lucky enough to be escaping to a hot country this winter, we would suggest choosing underwear that uses a light cotton, rather than polyester or nylon, as an increase in heat and friction can encourage skin irritation.

    Your daily goals

    If you’re channelling your inner tennis player, Björn Borg underwear is an ideal solution. Designed for athletes, our Björn Borg performance range is created with flat seams to prevent abrasion and cotton rich fabric to smoothly move alongside you; providing you with a tighter fit to maximise performance and help you smash your goals. Björn Borg performance wear will also absorb any excess sweat and moisture that may occur throughout your sporting endeavours. If your underwear is for work or leisure, opt for cotton fabric in a looser fitting style to provide all-day comfort.

    Be Confident

    When it comes to underwear, choose colours and patterns that reflect your personality and make you feel good about yourself. Opting for a fit and style that will accentuate your lower body is a sure fire way to boost your personal satisfaction and overall body confidence.
