One of my favorite things about menswear are the options available when it comes to tailoring your style to the season. Fabrics, patterns and colors are all elements that can help define a look as spring, summer, fall or winter.
Fall is all about breaking out richer fabrics and patterns. Here’s a sharp casual look with one of my seasonal go-to garments, a wool cashmere plaid blazer.
A plaid blazer is sporty but can also work at the office. That kind of versatility makes it perfect for a Friday you might have a date or happy hour drinks planned. Lose the tie, unbutton the shirt and you’re good to go – casually dressed up.
How a blazer is constructed factors in to how casual it will appear. A half-lined blazer will have a more relaxed drape, while a soft shoulder will make it appear much less formal as well (not to mention more Italian).
