A City Stroll In Holland

A stroll to the city: A new take on suits

So now and then I feel like putting a little more effort into my look. The goal here is to look well put together without being overdressed. To create Iconic signature combinations for every day wear.

For that reason I wanted to experiment with something usually seen as being to formal and to overdressed for casual wear and transform it into a look that you could wear on a stroll to the city.


If you look at a typical men’s wardrobe, a suit is the usual show stopper and who doesn’t want a piece of that in his every day look? You might argue that this could never be the perfect base for a casual look but with some simple changes it actually works.

By choosing a color that is more youthful like a army green, Bordeaux or beige and choosing a tailored fit in your suit, you prevent your ‘casual suit look’ looking to formal. In my case I added a playful grey and white shirt combined with a black hat, sporty chic watch and retro shoe shoes. to casual it up a notch.

By also dropping the tie, normally seen as to formal and adding the items mentioned above, my casual dress look was finished and good to go.
