Keep It Fresh

August 22nd, 2014

The word ‘fresh’ can mean so many different things in so many different contexts. It could mean something newly made, like fresh paint. Or recently arrived, as in, fresh from the beach. (That’s a nice feeling, isn’t it?) Or the need to replenish something, like I need some fresh supplies to stock my bar cart. And, of course, as a way to declare that something’s really awesome. For example, this RL leather bomber is super fresh, not to mention perfect for fall. But let’s talk about fresh, meaning new, particularly in terms of your wardrobe.

I talk all the damn time about being sure to always consider versatility when building your wardrobe, especially when you’re talking about suits. Not only does it help ensure that you’re getting the biggest bang for your buck, but, remember, you’re also giving yourself a variety of ways to help keep your style fresh.

For me, most recently, that’s what I’ve been thinking about with my seersucker suit. (See two different takes on dressing it up here for business and here for a wedding.) Summer’s almost over, but I’m still holding on, mainly because it’s been a relatively mild one on the east coast this year. A suit jacket can’t always do double duty as a separate, but my brown seersucker jacket pairs really well some white denim (which you can wear after Labor Day) and a denim shirt.
