    This is mostly what I live in, a chambray shirt and an unstructured blazer. I normally swap out the trousers for dark denim, but I have to say your making a great case for formal trousers Andrew.

    Usually if the weather allows it’s suede Chelsea boots or chukkas.

      Wow! It’s interesting how the color of your jeans are different on each leg. Never knew they made denim like that.

        I think that’s just a trick of the light. I’m wearing a pair from Uniqlo like you’ve got, the 69 dark navy shade.

    Dressing awesome gives a great confident boost that can give you a little boost to start your week.I find the secret is to have a relaxing Sunday and come in to work refreshed. I usually start slow as I read email and catch up with industry news. But refraining from alcohol and drinking a lot more water keeps me in a mood to crush Monday.

    Huge fan of your stuff Andrew. I really like this look. The chambray shirt has become my go to for almost any occasion. Keep up the good work!

    • Andrew

      Thanks so much! That’s a great way to prioritize your Sunday.

    I love when I can kick up my style by bringing my own set of chairs. The commute on the subway is a pain but it’s totally worth it.

    Question on the color of the pants. Target has then listed as Gray, Navy, or Black. Based off the pic and the pattern on their site were it would look to be black. What’s the correct option?

    • Andrew

      Yeah, it’s the “black” color, but they’re not black haha

    But you’re forgetting the pocket square 🙂

    The recommended Pentel pen is amazing! I have one that is at least 2 years old it’s still holding up great. The refills are really cheap as well. Would recommend it to anyone.
