Day One: Upscale Casual

Installment One of our series "7 Days, 7 Looks": Blazer, white shirt, loafers and jeans.

The best dressed man in the room isn’t necessarily the most dressed up man in the room. He’s the one paying attention to fit and how to balance tailored clothing with more casual pieces. In business settings (except for a court appearance) an impeccable navy blazer will take you far.

Just as versatile is a great fitting white oxford shirt. If you nail the jacket and shirt, you don’t necessarily need a tie, especially if you add a great pocket square. A slim straight jean works perfectly as a counterpoint to the more formal lines of your jacket.

The right shoes and accessories elevate everything. Here we choose some top notch slip-on loafers, some thin bead and rope bracelets, a great watch and a simple red bandana pocket square for just a slight punch of color. This pairing of high and low will take you to all the places you need to go.
