Casual Fridays have turned into casual every day for many offices. But that doesn’t mean a man can’t dress to impress or that suits no longer have their place. These local retailers and tailors show that even for a more casual look, sometimes a jacket is still required.

Lightweight flannel slacks and a blue cotton button up form a neutral, textured background for a festive pheasant tie. Completed by a subtle herringbone-patterned sport coat, William’s outfit fuses patterns and colors with perfect cohesion.

A well-tailored suit speaks for itself. In a modern, slim cut, Miguel’s ensemble, while sophisticated, maintains an informality with ankle-cut slacks and a white shirt with no tie.
