When I’m not in a sport coat you will usually find me in a polo shirt and chinos. The lack of a jacket means there are only a few accessories at my disposal. It is situations like these that I reach for an elasticated or braided belt to round out my ensemble.
Elasticated or braided belts complement almost any casual outfit without drawing too much attention. They can be worn with Oxford and chambray shirts and anything linen in addition to piques and cotton trousers. It’s a great way to smarten up an off-duty look giving one an air of casual cool.
