There was a time when rules ruled #menswear. Actually this was before the hashtag #menswear became a thing. Back then, wearing black with navy was a ‘crime’. Or rocking a blazer together with a t-shirt. And pairing a sneaker with a suit – well, we guess you would be laughed out of the room every single time. Luckily times have changed. You got a huge creative space to work on now. You see people rocking a suit while wearing a baseball cap. You see high-end fashion brands being paired with mass consumer brands. And you see some of the most fashionable men rocking enviable suit together with a pair of sneakers. We stole this style-move a long time ago. We still rock this quit often actually, mixing formal with informal. It looks good and it sure is comfortable running around all day with sneakers. Sneaker season is upon us, so we searched the world wide web to find the coolest sneakers you can easily team up with your favorite suit. The result are these six…
