Corduroy suits are as practical for the weekend as they are for the office.
Following up on “Part I: Dressed-Up“, here are the same three corduroy suits, dressed-down.
1. Simple. Suit, Sweater, Sneakers.
With the back and forth weather of NYC, every once in a while we get a warm sunny day in the middle of February.
One of my go-to “casual” looks for late winter/early spring: heavy suit + textured knit + classy sneakers.
The keys to a sharp casual look are simplicity, fit, color and texture.
And don’t forget the accessories. A simple look benefits from finishing touches like subtle, minimal jewelry.
These are one of the few pairs of sneakers I own that are beautfiully crafted. The suede and patent leather are top quality, and the design is simple and smart. They have the comfort and casual nature of a sneaker, with a hint of elegance and maturity.
They actually look and feel more like a pair of benchmade lace-ups than a typical pair of factory-made runners.
