You might be seeing double, but this is what a timeless wardrobe is made up of, classic basic garments that won’t go out of style. Jack Pearson from #thisisus never made office clothing looked so good.
It’s the 80s, Pearson has landed a steady 9-5 job instead of working dodgy construction. This change of career resulted in a wardrobe upgrade to formal wear. (You can’t be working at a cubicle in flannel and denim).
Jack keeps it simple with white dress shirts either with an Oxford collar or an open collar. His shirts are often plain however pale stripe shirts are thrown in to spice up his rotation.
Jack makes his presence known with his multitude of ties coming in a variety of colours and prints. Silk or cotton are the materials, but the designs is where it gets intriguing. He’s seen in geometric, paisley, polka dot and stripped these patterns are the foundation of a man’s neck tie collection. There would be some bold colours such as red, but nevertheless the pallet would normally be dull.
For pants and shoes there standard dress slacks and dress shoes.
Pearson’s choice of jackets are fairly usual in an office setting, there’s no eye popping textures or colours.
When it comes to casual pieces like sweaters and sweaters vest, they’re very much a by product of the 80s in terms of fabric, motif and colour, especially with those horizontal lines being a staple of the era.
This is the second part of the Jack Pearson outfit mini series that I’m covering. The 80s were definitely much more of a dense period to cover as you can see. It would’ve been impossible to dissect all of that in the previous post. Good news is that the 90s are coming!!! Jack’s wardrobe in that era is relatively tame in comparison due to a variety of factors that will be analyzed in the final part of the Jack Pearson outfit collection posts. #celebrityfashion#mensfashion#miloventimiglia
