Embrace the Wrinkles: The All-Round Khaki Suit 4 Ways
Sabir Peele in Frank & Oak Khaki Suit
[tps_header]It’s finally getting warmer here on the east coast, so we can finally bring out the khaki suits from the depth of our closets. Khaki suits often give off two distinct vibes; Summer Weddings or Southern Garden Party. There’s this unspoken notion that when a guy’s wearing a suit, he has to look 100% perfect, as if the suit is still on the cutting room floor. To a great extent that notion is true, in regard to your traditional wool suits & lighter cotton fabric, however; when you going with a heavy weight cotton, we say “Beat It Up”.

The suit feature through this post is from Frank & Oak (Laurier Unconstructed Cotton Blazer & McCord Dress Chinos in Desert (also available in navy)). When putting together these looks, the idea was to showcase the not so formal side of the khaki colored cotton suit and give it the actual “lived-in” effect. Think of it as “un-suiting”. Expect to see patterned shirts, sneakers, deep blue and some other kick-footwear.[/tps_header]

Patterned button shirts are a huge trend this year, but, selecting the right pattern for you can come at a heavy sartorial price. Make the wrong move with a crazy pattern and you’ll look you’ve jumped out of an impressionist painting. Below are some style tips to “perfecting” this look with your khaki colored cotton suit.

Pattern Shirt Styling With Khaki Colored Suit 

  • Start out with a shirt with a darker base color like navy. Navy complements the khaki color effortlessly. Your pattern won’t look as busy if it’s sticks to one color as well
  • Since the look has already become casual with the patterned shirt, inject more warm weather styling into the look with a pair of white canvas sneakers
  • This look works best for casual parties or an extremely casual Friday at the office (when you planning to party afterward)
  • I had the hem on these pants cut shorter because they’ll primary be pair with loafers or sneakers. Showing more ankle gives you some room to breath and is a better complement that a slight break.
