In Praise of the Polo Shirt and Suit
The business suit is a powerful thing. Find one that fits, and it basically calls out for a crisp shirt, an expertly knotted tie and a briefcase full of important documents. (Strangely enough, the documents are the hardest thing to come by.)
But there’s more to the suit than point collars and ties. A prime example: this snap from Men of Habit, starring a Phineas Cole suit, a Brooks Brothers pique polo and a dangerously louche demeanor. It’s a pretty staid suit by itself, but throw a soft collar underneath it and all the starch goes out the window. If people dressed like this on casual Fridays, we might actually look forward to them.
You’ll want to accessorize with some kind of brown liquor…
