Sartorial Sunday has never been about perfectly tailored suits and matching your lapel accessories. Rather it’s been about finding some unique style and trying to understand what makes it work. It’s also about some nice ideas for leaving the house well put together on a Sunday morning, regardless of your destination.
In this, another great capture by one of my favourite street style photographers Garcon Jon, we find the perfect blend of formal and casual, or would that be casual and formal, too hard to tell, its so perfectly blended. Like a smoothie.
I love this approach to dressing, where one item (in this case the denim) takes an outfit and turns it on his head. Think about it, if he had completed the 3 piece suit with the missing pants puzzle piece, he could be well on his way to some corporate job in a high rise somewhere, but the denims means he won’t feel out of place sipping on a flatwhite and munching a gluten free brownie at some coffee shop on an idle Sunday afternoon.
Lets take a look at some details.
Now as much as I like this look, I think it can be pushed slightly.
Firstly, i’m not crazy about the shininess of the suiting fabric (personal preference) I prefer something a little more textured in this situation, I also think that it would work better if it was a little prepped up with a nice stripy tie and then contrasted heavily with some distressed skinny denims with a purposeful turn up. Check out my versions below with links to all the items.
