Have you spent good money on a suit that’s spending more time in the closet than on your shoulders? Want another way to wear a suit?

A quality suit can be a sizable investment. But it can give you great returns with some tricks from our trade.

What do you think of when wearing a suit? Does your mind immediately jump to the classic dark suit paired simply with a classic shirt and tie? It’s a solid look, very presidential, but very one dimensional.

Now there’s nothing wrong with that approach. It totally works for business-related events, but Khakis of Carmel wants to modernize the way you wear a suit.

Layer It Up

Layering is a great way to update your suit and you have the option of keeping the tie. With cooler temperatures on the way try a mid-weight knit. Find one that’s thin enough to breathe yet thick enough to hide the pattern of the tie or shirt. While a V-neck will frame the shirt collar and tie knot nicely, a quarter-zip is great new option. Colors this time of year include rust, wine or forest.

A t-shirt? Really?

Do you want to completely omit the dress shirt and tie? First, take one of our V-neck merino silk blends from Eleventy. Next, layer it on top of a Left Coast Tee crewneck t-shirt for a sharp and clean look. Keep the look soft and sporty by adding a pair of chocolate supple leather sneakers.

Falling into Fashion 😉

With fall just around the corner, you can easily change up the way you wear your suit. Try a tonal turtleneck sweater and a pair of Alden suede chukka boots, but don’t forget the pocket square. Choose one that has a brushed finish, as a shiny square won’t flow with the softness of the look.

Now you have some new and fresh fashionable fall ideas. For some great visuals check out our Instagram page here

Have fun and well it well!
