An easy way to win at the worst dress code of them all.

Smart-casual is hard. Too formal, and you feel like a grandpa out of touch with those meddling kids; too casual, and you're the token scruffbag who missed the memo.

A quality sweater in merino wool is smarter (and warmer) than a T-shirt, but less formal and stuffy than your average dress shirt. Then there's the construction. Thin knitwear is easily slotted beneath tailoring, and won't distort the clean lines of a blazer up-top. 

Et voila: an easy way to do smart-casual without trying too hard. Thank you very much, Mr. Marsden.
