Suits & Commutes


Where the suit used to be an exclusive 9-to-5 uniform, tolerated only just past home’s threshold where it was immediately shed in favor of more comfortable leisurewear, the well-tailored suit is now something men look forward to wearing well after the office’s closing hours.


Some men have even worked suits into their weekend wardrobe. Menswear blogger Denny Balmaceda of Look Rich, Shop Cheap, for instance, wears his timeless suit and Vince Camuto Mens Notch Grey Vest  with work boots to immediately dress down the off-duty look. Layering a summery linen shirt (in lieu of your usual fine cotton dress shirt) underneath your suit also adds a casual appeal. Like Denny, further summer-ize your look with a pair of sunglasses with personality. Mirrored lenses and vintage-inspired and clear frames are popular new trends that add panache to your outfit.

With just a few small changes to your accessories, your suit can sail straight from Friday back into Monday without skipping a beat.
