If you only need to wear a suit for formal occasions, J. Press tenders a tasteful alternative via its robust stock of temperate tweeds permitting resignation from habitual blue blazer boredom.
J. Press patrons needn’t choose solely from our colorful Highland Lovat Mill, Harris Tweed, or Shaggy Dog Shetland Jackets. A more benign choice exists. Here’s my own take (pictured above) perusing one of my Threading The Needle books for the umpteenth time. Professorially clad in a Grey Herringbone Sport Coat over a slothfully knotted Ancient Madder Bow Tie on a 2-Ply 100s Solid Dress Shirt, anchored by Black Watch Tartan Dress Trousers. Self-expression finds its way with an Ancient Madder kerchief carelessly draped in the breast pocket, the whole outfit bottom lighted by go-to-hell Multi Color Stripe socks closing the act.
Sprezzatura, my overused phrase denoting a certain nonchalance, so as to conceal all art and make what one wears appear to be without effort, needn’t be confirmed with vulgar transposition of discordant styles or sloppy untucked subservience to media fashion savants. Personal wardrobe choices ought to confirm the essence of one’s very own self.
Let the hatchet fall where it may.
