This is a post to inspire you to dress a bit more classic but with a 2011 twist. The devil is in the detail, leather patches, handkerchiefs, leather or gold buttons, scarfs, knit ties. There tons of ways to upgrade sack coats, blazer and double breaster. Colour plays a very important part, mixing too much could be problematic, a good balance between non colours, like black, white and grey or very soft beige, really dark blue with accent bright colours are a secure way to guarantee a well chosen outfit. Its about mixing and trying, not hesitating and forcing looks. Play with patterns, shapes but dont loose wearability, because you could easily look like a clown or a superficial hipster. You have to add some attitude to it, so it doesnt look forced or even copied. Its not a costume, its a daily outfit.
