JACK KNOWS BEST
I've pulled a few more style questions from my inbox to answer for you.
The highlights: how to dress for casual Fridays (no Metallica T-shirts)
and what tie width works best. Got a question of your own? Shoot me
an email: email@example.com.
Q. MY COMPANY RECENTLY
INSTITUTED CASUAL FRIDAYS.
A. I went to a high school with a very
strict dress code, and one day each
semester, we'd be allowed a "free dress
day." Every single time, some kid would
take it too far and show up for class
basically wearing pajamas. Trust me, you
don't want to be that kid. If you wear a
suit Monday through Thursday, retain two
or three elements of it on Fridaysay, the
jacket, the wing tips and maybe the tie.
Try wearing them with jeans (they should
be clean, obviously, and fit wellmuch
like our 484 slim fit). Opting for a collared
shirt is always a safe bet. A rule of thumb
to abide by: If you'd wear it to the gym,
don't wear it to the office (yes, that means
leaving the hoodie at home).
Q. WHAT IS THE RIGHT
WIDTH FOR A TIE?
A. This is definitely a case where the
details make all the difference. Our
designers agonize over proportions
when they build our suits (their corner
of the office is jokingly referred to as the
Ludlow laboratory), and a tie is an
extension of that perfectionism. A
general guideline is that the tie at its
widest point should equal the lapel at
its widest point. Our ties clock in at 2 1/2
inchesthey look smart and tailored,
just like our Ludlow suit jackets.
