3. Whipcord + T-Shirt
A man can’t have too many blue blazers. They work with just about everything and are always appropriate.
As you’ve probably noticed, I love to mix and match “formal” with “casual”. This is a perfect example. The look is really simple and casual: a white t-shirt, cotton chinos and beat-up chuck taylors – with a double breasted suit jacket on top.
Bonus Tip: A cotton blazer – like this whipcord – always looks a little more relaxed than sharp wools. It may wrinkle/crease a little more, but that’s sort of the point.
Bonus Tip II: When in doubt, keep your db jacket buttoned. If it fits slim enough, however, it can look very chic open. Post on this coming soon.
Bonus Tip III: We featured another casual double breasted look here…although it was a little easier since it’s not a suit jacket and the fabric is purposely washed and beat-in to make it more causal.
