Chinos are vaunted as versatile and trusty. A man can't have enough of them. What better way to traverse through the heart of the city, unresticted, than in a pair of chinos. The shirt is not denim but rather cotton. This is a fact: In the correct fabrics a man will always be comfortably dressed. The navy blue pin striped jacket was added for a little casual formality, a distinct and distinguishing feature. And as cool as one particular gentleman I saw dressed in white shorts, a turquoise golf shirt, white sneakers and a panama hat, my linen jacket was equally cool.
A last minute executive decision saw me change my footwear from horse-bit loafers to these white sneakers by Tiger Onitsuka. With the amount of walking I was going to do there is no way my feet, and loafers would've survived the concrete jungle. The sneakers proved comfortable and stylishly complementary. Ever since I purchased this light brown briefcase, today is the first time that I used its belt for a sling over my shoulder. Steve Harvey once said "It's so hot in Africa it feels like the sun is leaning on you", the truth is, he was right.
