How to Wear It

(1) Go for the Lean Look
Your shirt and tie should follow the streamlined proportions of your suit, so stick with small collars and trim neckwear.

(2) Don't Overlook Your Belt
Even when closed, a one-button jacket will expose your waist. A skinny belt with a simple buckle is all you need.
