What We're Wearing

Business Casual

Sharp yet comfortable essentials to elevate your office look

Few men are required to wear suits to the office anymore. And even less are compelled to wear a tie. But that doesn't mean your professional attire has to devolve into bland button-downs and nondescript chinos. If most office workers are sporting business casual these days, stand apart from the boring worker bees and go against the grain, ever so slightly. Think a more refined take on the polo, suede shoes with a little street cred or a pair of gentlemanly trousers with a 2019 cut to the silhouette. They're modern updates that will ensure you look sharp, feel good and are ready for anything happening after hours as well.
