WHILE many women will have been looking for the perfect party frock for weeks, chances are that men will let shopping for Christmas clobber go down to the wire.

And nowhere do those precious shopping-hours-left before Christmas count more than at Glasgow Fort at Easterhouse, which offers extended opening.

The key look for menswear focuses on sharp dressing. Thanks to Skyfall and Downton Abbey, timeless tailoring is back in fashion.

You can't go far wrong with a suit or tailored separates in tweeds, wools or even velvets.

The safest bet will always be smart trousers, shirts and dressed-up shoes – experiment with printed shirts or chinos in dusky blue or rust hues.

Banish the cold that accompanies the cab home by accessorising with contrasting scarves, hats and gloves.

For a more casual look, think Christmas jumpers and cardigans with a heritage feel worn with chinos, cords or inky denims.

Layering on padded gilets or Fair Isle jumpers gives an outfit a stamp of winter wonderland appeal.

Glasgow Fort is open until 10pm on weeknights and until midnight from December 17 until December 23.
