When I leave home with a jacket I seldom worry about where the day will take me, wearing jacket is menswear’s biggest utility box. Toning down a jacket is easy, no tie, no socks quickly zeroes down an outfit to a casual bazooka. Take this three button,soft shoulders, unconstructed jacket with functioning buttons, topped with the usual dose of navy via these beautiful chinos i got from dockers. I went without the pocket square simply because I didn’t want anything taking away from the jacket, I wasn’t sure at first but after a while it felt like nothing was missing.Jacket by Tommy Hilfiger,Shirt by TM Lewin,Chinos by dockers,Loafers by Johnston & Murphy
In comparison to workwear my casual wardrobe has been a difficult one to build. Coming from a Sneakers and t shirt background it has taken me quite a while to firmly place my feet down when it comes to dressing down when I am off work. I haven’t done too bad and on days when I get to pull out my one of my favorite weekend jacket from Tommy Hilfiger I can almost feel the finish line coming on.People tend to think wearing jackets on a weekend is too dressy but I think the pivot rests on how it’s worn. I love wearing jackets on the weekend, aside from looking well put together it easily. Sails through any occasion from lunch to late night meetings.
