Monday Morning Blues. Brooks Brothers Hopsack blazer and blazer shirt, with Dockers chinos. Naturally, a Lions pin, a silk pocket square, and a surcingle belt. With a new-to-me vintage Seiko 5 Sportsmatic on a ribbon band. Cruising into Memorial Day Weekend.
From a week ago, this is a simple Spring outfit which is perfect for a casual night out with friends. The darker green color of these chinos works very well in Spring, where brighter colors might look out of place. The cream polo, surcingle belt, and boat shoes add a summery feel to the outfit, without being as saturated as in summer, where one might for instance wear a white polo. The sweater here is both practical, as it can be easily put on if the temperatures dip, and breaks up the cream polo, preventing it from being too overpowering. The orange tipping on the cuffs adds an element of color and playfulness to the whole outfit, which would not have been the case with a plain v-neck for instance.
