Wear A Suit Without Being One

A lot of people think that if you're into menswear or wear a suit that you yourself are a 'suit'. *Insert Billy Walsh from Entourage calling E a suit* Wearing a suit doesn't mean you have to be professional and boss like. You can make it causal and have fun while wearing one. 

For the suit itself, play around with different fits, colors, patterns and fabrics. For example, wearing tweed or linen, depending on the season. Rock a color that you wouldn't normally throw on. For underneath, you can wear a button down, polo or a t-shirt. I personally like a solid t-shirt or button down. There are a lot of options with the footwear, but it is easy to mess it all up with the wrong one. You can go with a clean running shoe or sneaker like New Balance, Margiela or Common Projects. You can also wear a boot, loafer or derby – just nothing too dressy otherwise it will take away from the casual look.

In the outfit above, I wore a resin-cotton navy suit that has a little bit of a deconstructed fit with a white t-shirt tucked in and a white sneaker for an overall clean look. 

Let me know what you guys think! if you have anything else to add drop a comment down below.
