A great sport coat can go a long way. Today Mr. Content paired his new Navy Tweed jacket with a bold purple check shirt, a clean pocket square, dark denim cuffed over a strong loafer (not as high as in the picture, i tugged them up to show you the socks), and he’s never without a bold sock. The lesson here: Casual Friday in denim does not have to be sloppy!
Detail shot of the socks and shoes…
Sport coat is from a new favourite spot of Mr. Content’s – Ted’s Style Shop. They have one of the best hand-picked selections in town and will tailor everything to fit like a glove (if it doesn’t already – most brand are from Europe and have a tailored fit right off the rack). Shirt is Tom Ford, socks, pocket square & shoes are all from Harry Rosen.
Why are men so afraid of colour? I assure you that executive or not, no matter what industry you work in, you don’t have to be afraid of colour! I highly encourage having a ‘signature’ colour, it makes wardrobe building so much easier and eventually makes outfit creativity so much easier.
And of course, the details;
By now you’ve noticed Mr Content’s passion for purple, it’s a great colour to work with all your basics – Navy, Greys, Black, Brown, etc. When you have a variety of accessories that have your ‘signature colour’ mixed in, or in varieties of that particular colour it really makes wardrobe assembly easy in the mornings, and you always look polished.
Despite the -5 temperature this morning Mr. Content was channeling spring today.
Tie and pocket square both Hermes. Both are actually gifts from me, I am a sucker for all things Hermes, Silk and anything with what I call ‘Dutch Orange’ in it. The pocket square was for our first Valentines together.
The socks are always coordinated. He actually didn’t want me to show his socks because they weren’t as ‘fun’ as his usual style. He rarely wears solid colours, almost always a pattern of some sort. You’ll see.
Look closely in the second pic for the purple felt flower in his lapel. Purple is his favourite colour.
