A lot of #menswear bros and snobs are going to hate me for saying this, but you don’t have to spend a lot on a suit. Sure, most suits are investments and are worth it blah blah blah. Suit can be fun too. (Cue cheesy show tune.) If you’re not in a suit and tie environment everyday there’s no need to splurge on a bunch of suits. (Do keep a nice one in the back of your closet though, just in case.)
I wanted to class it up a but a bit for my 23rd so I opted for this one from Forever 21. (You read that correctly my friend.) The color is on point and the fit is pretty good for off the rack. The key to dressing down your suit is not getting too casual. All you need is a sleek tee and some clean kicks. (Low top preferably for maximum ankle bearing.) After that you can make it your own. I opted for this snapback and bracelet for that simple monochromatic look. I’d like to think it’s the perfect outfit for eating pizza, downing champagne and throwing cake in people’s faces. The normal birthday stuff.
