Blake In Brooks Brothers Part 3: Business Suit

Surprisingly, or maybe not so surprisingly, this is the only business like suit that I own. Most of the time I can make do with suit separates, but it’s always great to have this Red Fleece suit in the closet.

Made more approachable by its slimmer lines and natural shoulders, Red Fleece suits are that much better because they come in a variety of both classic and trendy patterns. In addition, and most important to me, the suit blazer and trousers are sold separately-allowing someone like me with a larger base than top to achieve a better fit.
