A Sharp Casual Look with Suit Separates

As enthusiasts of menswear altogether, we should prioritize achieving the topmost versatility in all aspects of what we wear. When it comes to shopping for suiting, the same idea translates. It is important to make sure that the fabrics that are being selected are able to pair well with other suiting separates in your wardrobe.

In my experience, I have found that wool, and cashmere textured fabrics work well - especially with the most defining suiting piece, the blazer/the sport coat. 

With suiting separates, attaining looks that are sharp with a tint of casual are easier to achieve. As illustrated in the photos above, simply drop the tie, and unbutton your shirt. Two buttons at the most is respectable for a classic look. An oxford button down shirt comes into view as a less ceremonial option versus a spread, cutaway or club collar. 

The statement propels a fashionably attractive polish that favors the aura of a luxurious restaurant, or a snazzy bar. Without question, your shoes should salute the character of the outfit or the venue. Double monk straps are always a great idea.
