So……I’m wearing blue jeans, a Hugo Boss formal shirt with double cuffs and I was wearing my navy blue blazer. For those who understand sartorial rules: Yeah, I know.
The past week or so I’ve found myself wearing white shirts and most of the white shirts that I have are formal, I have two white oxfords but one is ancient and although it’s comfortable as fuck, it’s really only good for around the house. The other is in good shape but I only have one of them.
The other thing is that I love this navy blazer. Usually if I’m out in the pub I’ll wear an oxford shirt and a sport coat and all my sport coats are tweed. The combination of oxford shirt and tweed sport coat really makes me warm bearing in mind that I can walk about in 0C in a t-shirt so usually I take off my sport coat when I arrive. My blazer is comparatively thin, though, and so with a formal shirt it’s really comfortable even indoors.
I’ve been out a lot this week so I ran out of clean oxfords and ended up wearing formals. Then I ran out of those…..except the Hugo Boss with the double cuffs and I thought, “fuck it, why not?” and I have to say that I think that double cuffs are really starting to grow on me. They’re just a little bit smarter, aren’t they? Also I love the fit of them, it feels more relaxed and comfortable and I have some really nice cufflinks so I think from now on I might start wearing more formal shirts when I’m out, sartorial rules be damned.
