Dress Codes

  Wedding season is right around the corner and many of you will be attending social gatherings that require you to dress in formal attire. This is often a daunting task for us gentleman as not many of us own a tuxedo. For weddings, a suit will suffice but for formal dinners and events you will need to step up your game. Last week I attended the 4th Annual Metropolitan Fashion Week at The Seattle Art Museum which was sponsored by Suitsupply. The look featured in today’s blog post is the outfit I wore to the event.

  Given that it was a fashion show, I wanted to wear something that allowed me to showcase my own personal style and taste, while keeping in line with the dress code which was Gentleman Business & Tuxedo. I went with a classic pair of tuxedo pants that were tailored to fit me perfectly, thanks to my guy over at Adams Tailoring in Pioneer Square. As you know by now, I like to mix and match with my style, so I went with a lighter colored jacket from WRKNY (Work, Rest, Karma), an NYC-based menswear label. Given the time of year, the linen was a great alternative to the conventional tuxedo jacket. You can find it at Veridis on Capitol Hill, a great boutique for both men and womenswear. The shirt is linen as well, and is from Suitsupply Seattle, which happens to be my go-to store for all things sartorial. I topped things off with a pair of Black Plain Toe Balmoral Alden’s from Brick+Mortar Seattle.

Until next time, keep ‘em guessing,

Curtis Bright
