Wear a Pinwale Corduroy Sports Jacket
There are certain things our dads wore better than anyone. Corduroy isn’t one of them. But these softer, lighter versions don’t bring to mind key parties or shag carpeting. You can go from errand to gallery to dinner in this jacket and never feel stodgy or underdressed.

Throw on a Wash-and-Wear Button-Front Shirt
If there was ever a shirt made for the weekend away, this is it. Stuff it in your bag and it will come out looking exactly how it’s supposed to. The more rumpled the better.

Pair Your White Sneakers with Gray Flannel Pants
