Ostentatious: One way

Steven Onoja: A good example of easy “interchangeability”: this outfit works with the down Jacket layered over the sweater, or each on its own. Trade them both for the suit jacket or blazer and it’s suddenly a smart business casual look.

Layering allows you to keep the light coats in the closet and put together a look that can be transformed throughout the day, for changing weather and your different daily activities.

Sometimes the weather call for only a fine gage sweater. That’s good weather.The beauty of this look is that every piece will get better with age and wear. That’s not shopping, that’s investing.

Carrying the bag allows you to take layers off and store them, which is helpful in the inconsistent weather we’ve been having.

Dress shoes are not dress shoes anymore. Brogues and wingtips of all kinds are made with sportier fabrics and softer soles. Like these canvas joints with the rubber bottoms – more sneaker than corporate in my opinion.
