Suede Bombers Look 3

April 10th, 2014

3. Office Hours


Here’s an easy solution for a sharp “Business Casual” look: get suited up, then take-off the jacket and trade it for a slim bomber. Boom.

After work simply loose the tie, unfasten a couple buttons, and you have a perfect going-out look.


This is one of those jackets that I’ve had forΒ years. I scored on eBay during my junior year of college, and still feel like a million bucks wearing it.

A well-made jacket in a classic design will perform for years and only get better with time. For that reason, in my opinion there is also a sentimental value to buying quality. “Investment” menswear pieces will live and grow along with you, and can therefore serve as physical landmarks for your past experiences. This particular jacket, for example, has been through plenty of ups and downs…and a handful of evenings that I would be best served to keep to myself. Some memories are only for you – and your suit of armor.

I’m always reminded of a particular time in my life when I break this thing out – and it makes me smile, and reflect.
