As you can see from this outfit, I have been trying to ease myself in to refining my day-to-day look. I honestly have not owned more than two pairs of trousers in the past two decades. I have slowly realized that my daily office environment coupled with the different engagements I attend, should give me enough of a nudge to polish my outfits. I typically have strayed away from formal wear because I've never really been enticed by traditional menswear. My style has always been a little darker, edgier, and relaxed.
When I found this pair of Drawstring Tailored Trousers by COS I knew I had found the perfect compromise. These trousers are more like a fancy jogger, with the drawstring around the waist and tapered, but relaxed fit - these are perfect for creating a more refined outfit while keeping you in your comfort zone. I paired the trousers with a leather jacket, ripped band tee, and some sneakers - I am calling this the new "business casual."
