The third and final installment of the Black Double-Breasted Suit feature brings in a familiar menswear item — the denim shirt.
Custom Premium Black Double Breasted Suit – Oliver Wicks | Black Double Monk Strap Shoes – Johnston & Murphy | Denim Shirt – H&M | Green Sea Dragon Watch – Zodiac Watch (via hook+Albert) | Blue Handkerchief – hav-a-hank
You might be reading this and thinking to yourself, did #MSPBlackSuitWeek carry over to the next week — the answer is YES. It was one hell of a busy week last week. We saw two looks with the Oliver Wicks double-breasted suit and 3 looks from the Ministry of Supply Aviator 2 suit. But, I still wanted to give you one more look with this double-breasted suit.
Let’s be real, you’ve taken the risk by going full double-breasted and you’re content with keeping it simple. Even though there’s nothing wrong with keeping it simple especially with a suit, some of your favorite & rugged pieces can give your suit an expected personality. Case in point, the addition of the blue denim suit to this look.
- Committing to the unrefined: Yes, you can find a regular, tailored button denim shirt that’s highly refined from just about any major brand. But, a tattered denim shirt can be just the casual piece to break up the formality of this suit while not stepping into completely casual
- The Blue & Black Relationship: rich blues & black complement each very well. Think of this as a day-to-night transition look & color combo
- Ditch The Tie: keep it loose. Most western-style denim shirt have white or brown horn buttons that can replace your traditional neck tie
