Fore Front Fashion with Laura Serino

This is how you wear a suit

Want to know how to put a suit together with aplomb? Take note of this East End resident as I caught him leaving work downtown. First of all, a navy suit jacket is eternally cool and adaptable as a separate too. Fit is everything and his khakis are right on the money. After all fellas, a suit can and should make you a better man. Or at least make you feel like a better man.

And while I applaud this Chicago native for his perfectly tailored ensemble, it’s the details that really stood out for me. From the coordinating tie and tie clip (!) to his  slick Jack Spade bag and casual chukkas, I have a feeling he looks just as dapper dressed down on the weekend as he does in the workplace.
