2. Business Casual
A coat like this is a good investment because it can be worn for literally anything.
From a casual hangout with the guys, to a corporate luncheon, to a weekend with the misses on the ski slopes.
A double-breasted jacket might be too dressy for “business casual”, but a double-breasted sweater is perfect.
Also, I gotta say, I’ve been hooked on pleated pants lately. They’re soo much more comfortable than flat front, it’s true. This pair, from my FIT design collection, has a box pleat (a forward pleat followed by a reverse pleat). The additional fabric provides less restriction than my slim plain-front trousers and makes it easier to store things in my pockets (especially when seated for long periods of time).
The pleats also look very regal and elegant, in my opinion.
In a properly curated seasonal wardrobe, solid fabrics don’t have to be boring.
