The lightweight construction of suit trousers positions them ahead of jeans and chinos in terms of summer legwear. Chuck a pair on with hefty turn-ups – and a crease, if your ironing skills are up to it – along with a loose flannel shirt and white tee for a laidback look that errs on the edgier, Cali-inspired side of casual.
Pulling on a slim-fit suit is the easiest way of making people appreciate that you know exactly what you’re doing in the wardrobe department. However, worn with a tie and smart shoes, it can look a bit predictable. Take the formality levels down a notch and try wearing yours with plimsolls (no socks, obvs) and a crisp white T-shirt.
Granted, you wouldn’t wear this for a night down your local. But for an upscale night at a club even Kanye would have trouble getting into, chucking on your suit trousers with a boxy fit T-shirt and some stacked Dr Martens tassel loafers is a winning vibe.
