Separate yourself from the amateurs of style with the most elegant of suits, the DB.
A lovely, interesting crowd fills the city’s hot spot, creating the ideal mix of a contemporary metropolis: Fashion bloggers with pajama style outfits blend opinions over a pot of freshly brewed coffee, next to year old friends, members of the oldies society, sitting in the front while grading passers-by and their outfits. This is the perfect microcosmos I love to inhabit each time I decide to treat myself to the chicest breakfast in town.
YELLOW GOLD IS HAVING A MOMENT AND THE DE VILLE TRESOR BY OMEGA IS YOUR GENTLE NOD TO PERFECT, CLASSIC TIMEPIECES
Since I love honoring my choices by being at the top of my fashion game, I never go to Zonars poorly dressed. For this outing, in particular, I went for the all-time favorite double-breasted suit, since I am infatuated by the new Brooks Brothers pieces and really wanted to try one on.
· A silk tie is an absolute requirement when you are sporting a DB. Nothing shows you mean business more than a proper knot around your neck.
· While we are at it, throw in a paisley print pocket square that clashes the tie’s motif, just for the fun of it. No more matching accessories, please, only complementing ones that prove your fashion IQ!
· I have told you before that one of my favorite features of the Brooks Brothers suits is their radical fabrics. Take, for example, this check patterned piece that just lifts off the seriousness of the DB, giving it an update fresher than morning juice!
· For last, a tip that is more important than any fashionable detail: Never be late, especially when you are meeting someone for breakfast. This is the most stylish attribute anyone can have!
