All Dressed Down

“Mine is to just say something small” – Kenyan Proverb

I am a big fan of experimenting with my outfits, and that is just how I came across this look. I never thought wearing a t-shirt with a suit would work for me , but boy was I wrong. Wearing a t-shirt gives your suit a dressed down vibe suitable for the weekend.

For this look I wore a bespoke blue suit tailored by Nick Ondu Sartorial, a black v-neck tee, black dress shoes and I carried an umbrella. I must confess I carried the umbrella solely for its aesthetic appeal as an accessory rather than for its functionality. Win-Win!

Speaking of functionality, its been raining of late and  having an umbrella with you will come in handy. I’d suggest you invest in an umbrella that looks good. I cant begin to count the number of times I’ve been complemented for carrying an umbrella that goes with my outfit. Leave the large company branded one at home.

I’ll see you on the next one!

    I think it works.
    If i were to wear a suit, I definitely would not be conventional about it.
    I love how this outfit is dressed down and so classic at the same time.
    Good stuff Muriuki.
