For some reason the idea of power suiting has caught my attention this week. Something along the lines of Gordon Gekko, Chuck Bass and that D-list celebrity who’s name I’ve heard but don’t remember; I think he’s married to some other D-list celeb whom I have minimal tolerance for. The peak lapels of the jacket add a bit of formality and the white cuffs/collar on a blue, pink and white striped shirt really take things up a level. However, dare I get too formal so I decided to go sockless with the loafers; a bit of a contrast in formality between the feet and the rest of the body. I suppose representative of the duality of human nature (a theme I always enjoy exploring, especially via Stanley Kubrick’s movies). The pink of the tie tied in perfectly with the thin pink stripes on the shirt and the lavender design compliments the entire color scheme. Underneath the jacket are white Albert Thurstons which add a bit of simplicity and boldness to an already bold outfit. And oh yes, a white linen pocket square. I realize a bit of an air of douchebaggery comes with an outfit like this but isn’t that kind of the point? Judge as you see fit.
