[Lookbook 03.21.2012] Plaid and simple
After watching Chris Mann rock a plaid tie in the blind auditions of The Voice (see here), I remember having one myself and thought of wearing it. It's been weeks now and finally, I'm wearing it today.
Because the tie, being plaid, is already prominent, I kept everything else simple and solid with a plain white shirt and gray pants. I also went for a slightly relaxed look by keeping my shirt's collar unbuttoned, adjusting the tie in the process because I didn't want it to extend way below my belt line.
I know I said simple but I couldn't resist wearing red socks. Anyway, the color is anchored on the tie as well. And then I opted for brown for my leather.
To maintain the relaxed vibe I was going for, I brought along a casual reversible jacket; one side's nylon and the other is corduroy. A blazer or a suit jacket would have only dressed it all up instantly. So there.
Shirt (Celio); trousers (Topman); tie (SM Department Store); reversible jacket (from a shop at Glorietta); red socks (H&M); belt (Hickok at SM); shoes (Frank at Traffic).
