Trend Update: Casual Jackets and Lifestyle Suiting
One of the great silver linings that’s emerged from the pandemic has been the rise of casual tailoring. Perfect for those occasions that fall somewhere in between a relaxed coffee catch up and a board meeting, this has quickly become a mainstay in the wardrobe of many hybrid workers.
And for good reason. Seamlessly balancing comfort with the added polish that inevitably comes with a tailored garment, lifestyle suiting is something of a wardrobe Swiss army knife.
However, with less of an established rule book to guide us, the range can be daunting. To address this, we’ve developed our very own Oscar Hunt guide to casual suiting so you can shop with confidence.
For tailored lifestyle suits, more rugged, open weave cloths are the name of the game. Naturally erring away from the formality of super fine wools, casual jackets - and casual suiting more broadly - tends to lend itself to more relaxed weaves. These are fabrics that simultaneously evoke elegance and ease - a tricky tightrope to walk.
