Suit’n’Sneakers

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.

Heavy Linen

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. Jacket from Bladen, Inglese shirt, tie from Vanda, Berg and Berg ps, pants from Zegna, Mano shoes and Garrett Leight shades. Scent: Bruno Fazzolari Montserrat. Click on the headline for more pics.
