With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking date-night style. But even Casanova, the iconic smooth-talker, had a face that required a little help from his tailor (and barber and cobbler) to win over his lover. From shoes, to jackets to the finer details like accessories, here are 10 stylish men's items for men to rock this Valentine’s Day, that’ll leave a lasting impression on your beau. And perhaps score you a follow-up dinner á deux soon after.

1. Saint Laurent jacket

Look French-chic by candlelight with this Saint Laurent jacket. Sheeny and plush in black velvet, the soft-to-touch silk-cotton blazer is finished with a matte-black lapel, peaked to perfection for extra Parisian appeal.

2. Comme des Garçons shirt

Wear your heart on your chest (not sleeve) this Valentine’s Day with Comme des Garçons heart patch shirt. Made in Japan from pure cotton, the white long-sleeve button–down is stitched with a loved-up appliqué heart to the left side pocket area. It’s modern refinement, thanks to a formal shirttail hem and contemporary pointed collar.

3. Off-White trouser

Candy-heart colours are back this Valentine’s Day thanks to Off-White. The saccharine brights lights up the streetwear brand’s take on tailoring, as seen in this pair of wide-leg trousers.

4. Valentino boots

Add some va-va-voom to the traditional boot this Valentine’s Day. Valentino’s ‘Garavani’ Chelsea is cut from soft calfskin (that’s been texturally eroded) and sit at the ankle, with the Italian brand’s “VLTN” logo for 2019 stamped boldly on the back heel. The elevated sole adds some height to your evening look too.

5. Givenchy wallet

Unleash your inner animal on date night with this fearless wallet from Givenchy. In genuine leather, the Parisian house’s lion print wallet in textured style features an all around zip fastening and all the necessary utilities: multiple card slots, a coin pouch, note compartment, and an embossed internal logo stamp to seal the deal.

6. Gucci bomber jacket

When Gucci does sporty, it never lacks luxury. Take this haute bomber jacket in a shimmery quilted satin. In a reversible style, one side is red acetate with panther face patches, the other, black with contrast red sleeves. The scarlet colour makes this a winner to wear on Chinese New Year too.

Available at Gucci stores

7. Bottega Veneta trouser

Check yourself before heading out this V Day. Bottega Veneta is redefining the classic check pattern with the label’s cotton-blend trouser. Timeless and comfortable, the Italian-made pants are cut in a relaxed fit with a belt that adjusts when needed. Ideal for that post-food-and-wine-bloat that tends to follow a night out with the one you love.

8. Trickers leather shoes

The calibre of an outfit starts—and ends—with your shoes, and a pair of smart yet stylish leather lace-ups should be your go-to. Trickers—the gentleman’s cobbler since 1829—have reworked their classic derby shoe, benching a burgundy leather patent model that will leave a shiny impression on your date.

9. Versace shirt

For the romantic at heart, you can’t go past flowers. Versace has released a Baroque-print shirt in black silk with flamboyant florals. That’s in addition to the Italian brand’s signature Medusa hardware and gold-tone buttons. Keep the rest of the outfit black.

Available at SSENSE

10. Tateossian ring

A simple outfit needs blinging with the accessories: think an impressive watch or even jewellery. That said, Tateossian’s signet ring oozes rugged elegance for men, thanks to the brushed silver finished, and comes crowned with a faceted tiger-eye stone. Go get ‘em.
