Once a week, we like to highlight what some of our readers are wearing.
There’s something comforting about having a well-fitted, basic suit or sport coat. Something you can toss on without concern for any occasion that calls for it (and some that don’t), confident that the fit and drape are just so. It’s a good framework for one to work out subtler details of color, texture, fabric, and form. Although the tailored jacket continues to wane in popularity, it’s a smart idea to have a few good options you can turn to at any time without worry.
@urban_sartorialist is smartly dressed in a plain blue suit, striped shirt, and dotted tie. @g_tandre is reading up in a subtly checked gray suit, blue shirt, medallion tie, and horsebit loafers. Steve (@dapperbantu) is smiling broadly in a blue suit, white shirt, wine tie, and tassel loafers. Finally, @oxfordclothbuttondown is parking it in a navy blazer, blue oxford cloth button-down (surprise!), red tie, tan chinos, and beefroll loafers.
