So the place are you able to put on your Henley and costume pants? Virtually anyplace. Clearly this isn’t a proper outfit (so weddings, funerals, black tie charity galas, and many others., are proper out) nevertheless it matches proper in at brunch, cocktail hours, and fewer formal networking occasions, and Travis even argues it’s the proper first date ensemble.
“You need to present that you simply care about the way you look, however you’re nonetheless informal sufficient that you simply received’t make your date uncomfortable in the event that they didn’t costume up that a lot.” Carrying costume pants and a Henley hits proper in that candy spot of being trendy, but low-key, “you made an effort whereas nonetheless wanting easy.”
This makes a reasonably compelling argument for the Henley being that elusive “chameleon” piece Primer is all the time discussing. One that enhances no matter different items you put on it with. Whether or not you costume it up or costume it down, you’re not going to really feel misplaced, overdressed, or such as you’re carrying a dressing up.
