Glen Plaid Suits

Sometimes I wear an outfit, and after reviewing my archives, I realize that I could have worn it better. In some cases, all it takes is a simple change of shirt and tie, or just a different pair of shoes. This was one of the many reasons that I started this blog. Not only did I want to provide a source of style inspiration for my fellow young professionals; I also wanted to document my outfits and monitor my style evolution, as I grew wiser.

Therefore, I revisited one of my favorite glen plaid suits and paid closer attention to the details. By simply swapping the light blue dress shirt for this chambray OCBD shirt made a huge difference. Then by incorporating a chambray pocket square and braces, allowed me to complement the blue thread that runs throughout the glen plaid.

The shoes and fedora remained consistent but the overall outfit presents a totally different look and feel, and I think that is important when one decides to revisit a suit.
