Can’t Decide What to Wear to Work? This New Capsule Is for You


January 22, 2019 Style : Clothing By

At this point, there are only two or three professions that require a guy wear a suit and tie to the office. If you’re not an undertaker, a lawyer or a client-facing venture capitalist, you can probably get away with a pretty wide variety of clothing. And while variety is the spice of life, all those choices can make it harder to decide what to wear in the morning.

Can Off White’s new capsule collection for Mr Porter, entitled “Modern Office,” fill up the gray area between professional and stylish? That’s the hope of its designer Virgil Abloh. The 44-piece line takes the kinds of things that most guys can pull off at work (twill trousers, sneakers, button-ups and sweatshirts) and douses them with Abloh’s signature wit and graphic punch. From the slim-fit corduroy trousers with a shoelace belt to the bright red cotton canvas zip-up jacket, there’s something in this collection for everyone — and not a single piece feels like an afterthought. Prices range from $60 for a pair of socks to $1,390 for an embroidered jacket. But no matter what you get, any piece in the lineup will put you leagues ahead of your coworkers on the style front.
