Morning all, First post, after a while lurking and revelling in the banter. Brownman, I also share in the distaste for 'smart casual'. To me, it requires at the very least, shirt, no denim, and lace up shoes. A strapped shoe such as a double monk to me would be too formal, but a slip on may be too casual. Of late i have favoured the mix of camel chino, cordovan shoe with a navy blazer. Tends to tick all the boxes and as a subtle base, allows for mixing it up with knitted tie, coloured socks and the like. Are you looking to secure a creative role in the advertising industry? If so, I would look to mix up a little more colour, without crossing the border into lurid vibrance.
