The utility of the casual suit
There is an interesting discussion going on over on StyleForum on the utility of the casual suit versus odd jackets and trousers. Since my workplace has no real dress code (university departments in the natural sciences usually are ultra-casual), I tend to use both combinations depending on my mood and what I feel wearing that day. Today I settled on what can only be described as a casual suit. While a PoW patterned suit does not necessarily have to be considered casual, the fact that it is made up in brown flannel definitely settles the issue though - not something you would ever wear in a CBD environment - but it works very well in more casual surroundings.
