Casual Friday — Aaron, Broad St.

This is what Casual Friday looks like at Skai Blue Media, where Aaron is the Showroom Manager. "You caught me on the wrong day," he told me.

Notice the pocket square, a nod to formality on an ensemble carefully crafted as "casual." And of course the chest tattoo. Tattoos, it seems to me, are to mens wear today what ties used to be. They are the individualized embellishment within an otherwise predefined medium. 

The last Casual Friday I experienced was in the Silicon Valley in 2000, right before the dot com bubble burst. It did not look like this.
