Spring is a great time to add in a little prep and ruggedness to your style – even at the office. Kicking off a brand new partnership with Zappos, here are a few ways to dress down a business look for spring, including a varsity jacket and twill briefcase.

Preppy with a bit of a throwback vibe, a varsity jacket is a nice way to dress down a business look and give it a sporty flair. If the wool versions with contrast leather sleeves, big letter, soccer ball, and possibly someone else’s name embroidered on it, aren’t your thing, you have options. This nylon varsity jacket is simple, lightweight, and slim-fitting. A spring essential.
A briefcase doesn’t need to be made of leather. Canvas and cotton twill, like my Filson Original briefcase, are rugged takes on the classic leather version. Leather handles and accents make this version handsome enough to carry to the office.
Your shirt collar has a big impact on the overall impact of a look. A button-down collar helps to dress it down and pairs well with the prep of the varsity jacket and the sportiness of the canvas briefcase.
We are thrilled to launch this new partnership with Zappos. Everyone knows Zappos as a great place to find shoes online, but it’s much more than just that. Over the next few months, we’ll highlighting some of their other offerings and showing you another side of the brand. Stay tuned!
Thanks for reading.
