My husband, Scott, and I are renovating our whole home. Scott is an IT consultant who enjoys the opportunity to do physical labour. As we renovate he has decided to take on the demolition and landscaping tasks. This has been wonderful on many levels, saving money and knowing that things are being done correctly. This has also worked as a very effective weight loss technique, which has caused him to shrink out of yet another round of clothes. Scott’s style is bold and confident but always with a classic cut. He and I enjoy shopping together and find quite a mix of pieces. I have pulled a few additional pieces from his wardrobe that still fit him for use in the pictures below; but I have mostly used the items that we are now selling as they could not be tailored to fit.
Let’s start with a look that is a good Christmas party outfit and then see how many different looks we can create. Instead of pulling out the same suit why not go comfortable in a 5 pocket Alberto pant with an “inside-out” looking Van Gils jacket and an Etro shirt? Add your favourite belt and some shiny shoes and you are set.
Or pair these same pants and shirt with a Dolce & Gabana jacket. The detailing on this jacket is beautiful.
Or a Diesel vest for a more casual Christmas party look.
The same pants and shirt again but dressed casually with a Boss leather jacket, your favourite sneakers and a casual belt to extend your wardrobe.
That Etro shirt can have another look for Christmas with a pair of Merlot coloured AG jeans and a great detailed Baldessarini jacket.
A little dressier with another pair of 5 pocket Alberto pants, a shiny red shoe, simple black t-shirt and the look is stunning and comfortable.
Those Alberto pants pair so comfortably with your favourite black t-shirt, hoodie and sneakers for beers with friends or date night.
Add a Stones vest overtop for a little more interest.
Remember the great detailed Boss leather jacket, well it has such a cool vibe with a Robert Graham shirt and a pair of Genetic Denim jeans.
Want something a little edgier for the club, switch out the leather for one of these Gsus jackets.
Also available is a vest from Cirque du Soleil with great detailing.
And a pair of Citizens of Humanity brown cords.
Finally, there’s always a need for a great 3-piece black Strellson suit. Use the pieces together as a suit or separately to stretch your wardrobe.
Well, that was fun and I feel like I have only scratched the surface of what can be done by mixing and matching these few pieces.
