Blogging about menswear is what I do to fulfill my creative side, but professionally, I work in the field of Criminal Justice as a Probation Counselor. In my line of work, business casual is about as fancy as it gets, but I wear suits and ties everyday because that’s what I’m most comfortable wearing. A typical day for me starts out with having every aspect of my outfit of the day already prepared from the night before. It affords me the extra time to ease into the morning and stop for coffee before going into work.
For this look, I’m wearing a topcoat over what I like to call the three piece change-up. It’s not cold enough to layer the blazer under a coat, so I paired the suit pants with a vintage waistcoat. I’m also wearing chukka boots instead of dress shoes and when the outfit comes together with the briefcase, it has that college professor vibe. A custom-made spread collar dress shirt and classic aviators are nice finishing touches.
