Today it’s the new normal to wear sneakers with a blazer, even with a more formal fit with wool pants and a tie. But it’s much more difficult to pull off wearing sneakers with a suit. If you dress down the suit it can be easier, for example by avoiding shirt and tie and go for a turtleneck instead. But to combine the classical menswear uniform suit-shirt-tie with sneakers rarely works. Generally it looks contrived, sloppy or just plain ridiculous. Question is: can it be done? Here’s one attempt, with a pic with more formal shoes as well as comparison.

New jacket in a heavy Irish linen fabric. I like the combination of a heavier type of linen because you still get the cool and airy qualities of linen, but with a great fall in the fabric and without the flimsyness of lighter linen.
