Who says formal wear can’t be fun?
Guys who regularly make it to our best dressed lists are the ones whose work allows them to go full Zoolander. Ranveer Singh rocking a floral suit at an awards show. Wyatt Mitchell wearing a boiler suit to announce one of Apple’s most important developments. Timothée Chalamet in cropped pants with boots on the red carpet. So you might find yourself asking, where is inspiration for the regular dude who wants to wear some normal clothes – for a job that involves more sitting behind a desk and less flexing in front of a camera. Ones that transcend seasons and are pocket-friendly.
The key to nailing office wear starts with picking the right items. Aim to hit that sweet spot between appropriate and trendy. And a foolproof method to get started on that is with Arrow New York’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection.
You are already familiar with Arrow – the go-to brand for smart fits. Now meet its younger brother with an edge – Arrow New York. The new label is perfect for the kind of guy who likes his 9-to-5 gear to work for after-hours as well. Think ankle length trousers with cuffs, formal shirts with houndstooth print and polos in a range of bright colours. The collection of suits also moves beyond the standard fare. That is why you will find patterns like windowpane and colours such as lavender and olive. And once peak summer hits, reach out for the half-sleeved printed shirt that is sure to energise your otherwise nondescript office wear.
Here, a handful of items from the TOFFCRAFT collection to help you get dressed for the job you actually want – guaranteed to be a step-up from what you already own.
