Work. Rest. Karma

WRKNY also known as Work, Rest, Karma, is a New York-based menswear brand that explores elements of traditional work wear with a tailored approach. I first came across the brand at Seattle stockist Veridis Clothier on Capitol Hill. After trying on one of their linen blazers, I was impressed by how well it fit right off the rack-no tailoring required. I was sold. I had the blazer in heavy rotation all Summer ‘16, and since then I’ve kept a close eye out for their seasonal collections.

For this look, I’m wearing their Windsor Pinstripe Waistcoat. This is that statement piece that adds depth to any outfit it’s paired with. As usual, the details are impeccable: Pinstripes, peaked lapel and front pockets. The backside is white with unique button adjusters for tightening.

I paired it with brown accessories and when worn with jeans, it’s the perfect smart casual look. There are so many style approaches that work with this waistcoat, which makes it one of the most versatile pieces of clothing in my closet.

You can find W.R.K. at and also at Nordstrom and Bloomingdales.
