You need something that’s not a suit and but is a bit more distinctive than dark jeans and a blazer because you’re a suit guy, right? You’d still like to fill the “smart casual” gap in your wardrobe, but you’re not really sure where to start.
Sound like you? May we suggest the Leviner Wood solution for dressing somewhere in between?
Above, we’ve made up a grey sportcoat with a pair of tailored trousers for a client who found himself in just such a situation. Look closely (sorry for the color discrepancy, the trousers are actually black), and you’ll see details taken from dress pants — the extended tab waistband and a besom, button-though back pocket — that keep things smart enough for a suit wearing guy. You may also notice that the trousers are stretch cotton, (sheds wrinkles like wool), and have top quarter pockets and a coin pocket, just like your favorite jeans, that keep things more casual.
Comfortable and casual, smart and a bit sophisticated. Checks all the boxes and comes in just about every color combination you could wish for. Ask Larry for help choosing your look when you need to land somewhere in between.
