Gray Windowpane Blazer: Off Duty Weekend

With any suit, you should always look for ways to achieve maximum versatility. No piece of a suit can get more mileage as a separate than the jacket. Wrapping up our 1 Piece/3 Ways partnership with Gilt, here’s one way to style a gray windowpane suit jacket as a separate.

When it comes to suit separates, not all jackets are created equal. In other words, not every suit jacket can be worn as a separate. Fabrics with a sheen don’t pair well with casual bottoms like chinos or denim. Wools with a pattern and/or bit of texture work well. If you’re ever unsure, use my favorite style rule: if it doesn’t look like it works, it doesn’t; if it does, it does.

A blazer with denim and an unbuttoned shirt is my classic “sharp casual” look. A no-brainer for happy hour drinks, a first date, weekend brunch or coffee.

Big news this weekend is that we’re finally rolling into development for the new site. We’re working with a fantastic new team and I know that the slight delay in relaunch will have been well worth the wait. Also, we’ve been in talks with a production company in NYC for a brand new “on the street” style video series for the blog and YouTube channel. Lots of great things in the queue!

    Chelsea boots are my new favorite past time; there’s nothing like pairing jeans with a classy blazer like this on any day of the week.

    Brian, thanks for these style posts. I’ve been revamping my husband’s wardrobe (with his input of course!) and your posts have been the main inspiration on style and fit as we find his look.
