Stay in the picture with Style Essential

Style Essential is an independent menswear clothing store in the heart of Colchester’s town centre. We stock original styles in quality fabrics for all generations of men with an eye for the retrospective.

Our influences mainly come from the mid 60s to mid 90s, but most importantly the element of classic British tailoring, sub-cultural fashion, music and art.

We have a full range of Suits, Shirts, Trousers, Coats, Jackets and Knitwear. To complete your look, we stock a range of accessories including ties, pocket squares, hats, belts, socks & bags.

Whilst Mod culture inspired our beginnings it by no means defines us today. Our offering has evolved over the years into a comprehensive lifestyle menswear collection of both formal and casual wear with a broad fan base.

Attention to detail and originality will always be at the forefront of our collections, inspired by authentic heritage brands that have influenced generations past and new.

At Style Essential, we believe our clothing has a soul and should mean more to the wearer than just the sum of its parts.

Our website merely demonstrates a selection of items currently in stock. For the complete experience, come down to our shop in Eld Lane to view the entire collection.
