SUITCASE STYLE.

MANLY MONDAY: SARKIS 2.0

Sounds like a rad video game, the newest innovation from some up & coming company, or an investment bank, right? Well, take your pick of the three, or all together, Sarkis says slick, relevant, and reliable. Funny how fitting that is.

My office is pretty much a hotbed for creatives who are going places. I had the pleasure of meeting Sarkis the other night and “going places” doesn’t even begin to sum it up.

Considering his impressive title, what he’s in charge of, his media presence, and his propensity to perpetually be on a plane to the next place that needs him, I’m just saying, you’d expect a bit more pretense. But turns out, this well-traveled mister not only knows a thing or two about most things, but is stylishly and refreshingly unpretentious.

As someone who embraces personal style, yet happens to often enjoy happy hour on a different coast than he had his morning cereal, how the heck does a guy construct a wardrobe that fits with that lifestyle?

CONVERTIBLE BASICS with a POLISHED FLAIR.

 CONVERTIBLE BASICS:

  • [black] well-fitted jeans. casual, comfortable, go with anything.
  • [black] fitted blazer. notice we’ve now said fitted twice? OMG know your measurements!
  • [black] rimmed glasses. a stylish choice, but a functional staple nonetheless.
  • tee shirts. that fit. and don’t have a logo across the front.
  • a couple good watches. this one in particular is a Casio, but there’s something about a man who wears a watch, instead of only relying on his smartphone for the time that just feels dependable and classy.

POLISHED FLAIR:

  • pattern. the blue stripes on the basic tee make it. all black/neutral + a patterned piece: do it.
  • dash of color. these shoes happen to be extra fancy for being so casual. BUT. it’s great to have an unexpected pop. [This particular pair of shoes are limited edition from Sperry’s on 5th Avenue. Swanky chill.]

As with any style profile, this is Sarkis’ style, not yours.
But we hope you’re inspired to find those pieces
that can be your convertible basics & polished flair.

Have a marvelous Monday, loves!
