So, I’ve been getting more casual recently. I’m not sure why, but I guess it’s my way of dressing differently. Things can get pretty boring when you wear a tie everyday, no matter how many lapel flowers you own. Weirdly enough I get such great reactions when people catch me in a T shirt and jeans I’ve been doing it more regularly.
I do struggle though with loosing that gentleman’s edge I love so much, so when I found this pic by Garcon Jon, it gave me some ideas. I loved the mix of very formal pants with an informal roll up and a very casual T-shirt, it just works so well here with the navy colour blocking. The final detail are the loosely strapped double monks, it walks (no pun intended) the very fine line between casual and formal. Nailed it!
I’ve been having some difficulty finding items online to help you build your wardrobes, so I’ve been doing less of that, but I managed to find the key essentials in putting this look together if you like it.
I liked the polka dot detail on the pocket tee over here, seemed to go nicely with the texture of the pants.

Okay. Stay fancy…or casual sometimes I guess.
