Final Touch: On and Off the Clock
If you’re one of those lucky enough to work in a casual office, then listen up. Though it’s tempting to go for your old t-shirt and kicks, you’ve gotta remember that it’s still a place of business, and you want to look the part. There’s always one guy who takes it too far, let’s make sure that’s never you. Cool? Cool.
Let’s start at the bottom with your shoes. Dirtied up sneakers are cool for the weekend, but you should class things up a bit when you’re on the clock. Derbys are possibly the most versatile shoe out there, and they look good on pretty much every man in creation. The Paolino has super rich in texture, adding a bit of refinement to everything—a thoughtful detail when you’re going casual. And speaking of detail, that green sole is the perfect update for the 21st century guy, which you probably are, with your casual office and everything. Plus, they’ll last you years, and that suede only gets better with a little bit of wear and tear.
The main benefit to the casual office is your ease of transition into your extracurricular activities. Whether you’re headed to a date, a bar, or who knows where, rest assured that these shoes will serve you well. But don’t forget to throw on a solid belt, and some wrist gear–you want to have some fun with everything, especially if you’re heading out after the day is done.
