From a ‘template' perspective, this outfit has all of the makings of a dressy-casual outfit for a nice Mother's Day dinner, but it's the heftiness of the items that keep it casual. While you may be hesitant to wear a sweater and a collared shirt outside of a work situation, the ruggedness of the oxford cotton shirt, chunky knit sweater, heavy selvedge denim, and thick leather boots all work to make a comfortable, more casual outfit befitting the smart, successful guy you are.

Choosing a large black-on-black chrono like this watch from Boldr also pulls you more casual than a typical stainless steel or leather strapped watch might.
