It can be tough to get back into work mode and the tailored clothing mindset after a long, luxurious summer of shorts, tees and flip flops. Guys, you'll start to see your colleagues dressing up more after Labor Day, but a structured suit or sport coat may seem too structured and constricting so soon after all the BBQ-ing and beer. I suggest easing into things with a versatile jersey knit or stretch cotton blazer. There are several options out there for this sportcoat hybid - though I am really in love with those by Circolo 1901. What’s great about these soft jackets is that they feel like you’re wearing a lightweight sweatshirt but the lapels and two-buttons give a more dressed up feel. In some office environments you can wear it with a crisp shirt and slacks, but you can also wear it with a tee-shirt, jeans and sneakers just about anywhere.
I’m pretty obsessed with the sweatshirt blazer for Fall and there are a few to choose from. (If you’re in NYC Rothman’s has a new shipment of Circolo 1901’s best styles).
