At our men’s consignment store in San Diego and Phoenix, we see a lot of looks. We see button downs and skinny jeans. We see blazers and scarves. And we see shoes.
We see a hell of a lot of shoes.
And though we see loafers and wingtips and studded cowboy boots (just don’t do it), we’re here today to talk about sneakers.
Specifically, the Suit and Sneaker.
Allow us to introduce you.
Welcome to the age of looking
badass in your favorite tailored
suit and feeling badass in an
everyday sneaker. Drake does it. JT does it. Now you do it.
Here’s where: Because the Suit and Sneaker look is dressy without being too dressed up, the look is perfect for a Casual Friday at work, an after-hours party, or a night out in the city. Wear your suit jacket with a tie, wear it open with a white or black v-neck, wear it with the sleeves rolled up over a casual button down Henley.
Here’s How: Owning the Suit and Sneakers combo is a great power. And as we all know, with great power comes great responsibility. Going classy on top and casual down below does not give you the right to wear just any sneakers with that single breasted suit of yours.
The Do’s: The trick is to keep it simple. Go classic: stick to white or black canvas Vans, or stark white leather sneakers. Inexpensive, awesome, and so ridiculously comfortable, you’ll be thanking us the moment you slip them on.
The Don’ts: No gym sneakers. No basketball sneakers. No rhinestone Ed Hardy sneakers. We’re serious. The more tailored, the better. A good rule of thumb is that your sneakers should be as tailored as your suit. You don’t walk around in a chunky, ill-fitting suit; don’t match it with a pair of chunky, ill-fitting sneakers. Always respect the suit.
And though you’ll look like a million in your Suit and Sneakers style, you don’t have to spend that much. Got the suit? Drop by Well Suited for the sneakers. Got the sneakers? Come find the perfect suit. And as always, our pros will help you find all the men’s designer clothes in San Diego or Phoenix that a guy could need.
