Can you wear a suit jacket casually?
While a suit jacket is usually a staple piece for more formal dress codes, it can easily be adapted to more laid-back settings, if paired with the right accompanied wardrobe pieces. First, choose a suit jacket made from a lightweight fabrication, such as linen, as this will work back seamlessly with an off-duty outfit such as jeans and a t-shirt. Softer hues will have an easier time integrating with your casual attire, such as cream or blue. Steer clear of button-down shirts, rather look for cotton or linen tees and straight leg jeans to evoke a more relaxed mood.
What are men’s jacket essentials?
There are a few essential jackets every modern man needs in his wardrobe. A classic cut denim jacket is the ultimate trans-seasonal essential and can be paired with jeans or chinos and any number of shirts, tees or knitwear. A well-tailored suit jacket or blazer is another staple jacket for a man’s closet, preferably in a darker block colour such as black or navy. For the cooler seasons it’s essential to be equipped with a versatile, weatherproof coat or parker. Again, look for darker hues that can be paired back with your other wardrobe favourites.
How to best take care of a jacket?
Care instructions for jackets vary depending on the style and fabrication of the piece. When storing your jackets, be sure to hang them up in your wardrobe so that they retain their shape across the shoulders and neckline. When cleaning your pieces, take note of the specific care instructions listed on the garment’s tag. If the jacket is leather you should take it to a specialised leather cleaner, as it requires particular care and cleaning products. When cleaning a denim jacket, turn it inside out before putting it in your machine and lean towards mild or natural detergents in a cold wash. As a rule try not to wash your winter coats more than once or twice per season, and blazers or suit jackets every four or five wears.
