Style Icon

Nick Grimshaw is an English television and radio presenter. Best known for hosting the Radio 1 Breakfast Show and appearing on television shows including The One Show and the X Factor. Although he spends the majority of his time being heard and not seen on the radio, when he does come out he definitely has style.

Voted ‘best dressed man’ by GQ in 2014, Grimshaw’s fashion choices have only got better since then. He’s one of Mainline Menswear’s style icon’s, allowing us to take a more in depth look into his outfits, and let you know how to pull them off too.


When he’s dressed up in a suit for presenting or award shows, Grimshaw brings a unique, indie style to the common tux. He likes to wear a very slim fitting suit, sometimes alternating suit trousers for black skinny jeans instead. This is paired with a crisp shirt – slim fit of course – and often accessorised with a tie or bowtie.

With regards to footwear, he either chooses classic black shoes, or sometimes livens up the outfit a little with a pair of boots. If you want a similar shoe, try out these Grenson brogues – made with patent black leather and a perforated design, they’re certainly smart enough for any occasion. If you’d rather wear a boot, try these Pretty Green Desert boots – made with suede for an indie addition to your suit.

The rest of his outfit in this image could also be acquired through Mainline Menswear. This single breasted Vivienne Westwood suit is a slim fit design, similar to what he wears, and will pair well with either a tie or bowtie. Then we have hundreds of styles of shirts you can choose from, from many different designers and high end brands.


For a more casual look, Nick Grimshaw continues his affair with black skinny jeans, wearing them at every opportunity he gets. In this look he is wearing a dark denim jacket, brightened up with a red, floral pattered shirt underneath. He completes his look with black boots, a pair of sunglasses and a couple of bracelets to accessorise.

You can create this look using Levi’s, the incredible denim brand as a starting point. Black skinny jeans and this denim trucker jacket in dark blue are both by Levi’s, made with the highest quality denim available. Alternatively, if you want a slightly lighter shade of blue for your denim jacket, try something like this Billy denim jacket, by Nudie.

Our selection of floral shirts at Mainline Menswear isn’t quite as flashy as the one Grimshaw wears, but if you want something a bit subtler, try this floral number by Ted Baker. Or go for something with bold patterns like this Paul Smith Jeans shirt.

To complete this look, go for a rounded style of sunglasses like these from Ralph Lauren Polo, or opt for a thinner frame from Ray Ban.

There’s no doubting that Nick Grimshaw has style, and you can too with this guide. All the brands mentioned above our available on our website, as well as plenty of others. Visit our website here to browse our extensive range of stock.
