Not So Casual Friday

Brown Suede Wingtip Loafers by Mercanti Fiorentini


Typically, Friday is the day that most people will go casual with their wardrobe at their respective offices. For some office dressing “casual” means, jeans and a t-shirt, however; not all office adhere to that standard. I do agree that it is nice to “dress down” some days, but, as long as you are comfortable in all of your clothes dressing down is not necessary.

With this look there are casual elements. Loafers as opposed to lace up, waist coat as opposed to suit with a blazer, grey chinos and of course my London Fog driving cap.

This post is a quick preview of pieces that will have their own features soon from my wardrobe. Look out for a driving cap, trench coat and a grey denim post coming very soon.

    I look forward to learning more about that trench. Are those the original buttons or did you replace them to create the contrast.

    A very sharp look – the cap is a perfect addition as well.

      Hi Antonio,

      The buttons are actually the originals, which is what dress me to this trench. Thanks, I picked this cap up for about $8 which is a steal.

    I’m pretty sure that I have that same style trench from H&M, but in dark grey with contrasting buttons. It’s great!

      Hi Michael,

      Thanks for reading. The key to my style and Men’s Style Pro is that I like to show that having good style does not have to break the bank.
