2. Business Casual

Trade the blazer for a light jacket (or heavy shirt) and layer the vest for a quick and easy business casual look.

These are the pants from same tweed suit (the jacket is above in look 1). This is a an example of why the “Seasonal Suit with Texture and/or Pattern” was number three on my Re-Invent Your Wardrobe with 25 Essential Items list.

As we make an early transition to Spring, you should get to know the overshirt - as featured a year and a half ago here.

    Hey Style Blogger
    Great site! Keep it up,

    I really like the jacket. I was also wondering, what’s your take on logos? (lacoste, Ralph lauren, brooks,burberry, fred perry etc..) because you never seem to wear anything with a logo.

    • Adyna

      Good remarck Alessio :). But he doesn`t really need a logo to show style and that`s just great!

    • AFJ

      Logos are for people with low self-esteem

    So in love with the cords from look three. Will admit it has a cowboy esq feel to the vest.

    i’m not sure if i’m totally convinced of donning the down vest, but the red socks and vintage tie in look #1 are too good.


  • Ambyr

    I love the Corporate Casual Friday and the Hanging with the Guys/Hitting the Bars. The jacket and the denim top are perfect for layering and the colors look great together.

    Your looks of late have been very…theatrical. But I would wear the hell out of every outfit above. Well Done!

    Awesome post. I’ve just gotten back into down vests after thinking they were too poofy and unwearable, so thanks so much for showing again and again how to swag them out. Props.

    How do you keep your shoes clean/ perform maintenance on them? Keep up the good work

    Look #3 is awesome. I really gotta get a down vest and try that. I think your down vest’s color scheme really helps it since the cream is pretty neutral, and the brown in the shoulder area really helps it match against a lot of your other pieces in your outfits (against in the tie in #1/#2, against the knit design in #3, etc). Great post, Dan.
