While most people may not look forward to Monday morning too much, I actually get a rush out of a full email box, drinking a 4 shot Americano and getting dressed up to get some work done. So far this fall I have been getting a lot of wear out of my chambray and club collar shirts which both have been accompanied by more neck wear than usual. This Drakes knit tie is looking great right now. I think it brings a nice casual feeling along with it, going well with an oxford cloth - its also an ideal tie choice for somebody who doesn’t need to wear a tie. The EG Bedford is a classic casual sport coat and goes well with the cords and is flexible enough to get some work done before popping into a meeting. I have been off wearing Vans for almost a year or two, only recently I picked up a pair made in the USA in white canvas. They’ve been getting loads of foot time with and without socks and I think with the right mix of fabric and patterns through the rest of the outfit, Vans can work well with a tie without looking like a poorly executed GQ spread.
