Dude, What Does Men’s Business-Casual Actually Imply?

Former WME agent and founder of males’s model consultancy agency The Weitz Impact, Andrew Weitz breaks down summer season dressing for the gents.

Summertime in Hollywood (and everywhere for that matter) is the time of 12 months when most executives are typically extra laid back. Temps rise, the business slows down just a bit and loads of places of work start Summer time Fridays, which implies that work attire additionally turns into a bit extra relaxed. Nevertheless, I discover that almost all men don’t perceive what “Business Casual or “Casual Friday truly means and/or what’s actually applicable. Relying on which side of the leisure trade (or business world) one works in, there are some definite dos and don’ts to reaching a fashionable casual look whereas still trying skilled. Here it goes:

2. No flip-flops or gym footwear on the workplace (even if you’re a “inventive sort”).

Flip-flops only work if you’re in faculty. As a substitute, wear designer sneakers not your running shoes or loafers with “no present” socks. A number of favorites embody Lanvin and Gianvito Rossi for fashionable kicks as well as Tod’s and Salvatore Ferragamo for informal slip-ons.

3. Take a break from black.

During summer time, brown leathers must be your first choice for belts, work bags and footwear.

Four. If a tie isn’t elective.

If you’re still required to put on a tie to the workplace, opt for a knitted one and add a lightweight, linen pocket square.

5. Don’t put on baggy denims on Summer season Fridays (or anything baggy for that matter).

Overly baggy denims (or slacks) and an oversized button-down just isn’t a fantastic look. As a substitute, put on tapered denims or slim-fit cotton pants with a tailor-made, quick-sleeve polo and jacket for a sensible casual type. Uniqlo, J Brand, Frame and Rag & Bone are all safe bets for comfy but stylish denims.
