Sports coats don’t have to just be plain black. There are several varieties of the wardrobe staple that can take you from casual to dressy and that don’t involve the word “boring.” This month I’m bringing you three variations of this menswear essential to take you from simple date night to daytime wedding to an important office event.

Wear this coat with a classic button-down and jeans for a step up from the same old casual look.

A classic cut with a unique plaid print adds a fashionable spin to this look.

This dressed up look can be worn with slacks and a tie to bring the look to another level.

These looks and more can be found at Pope’s Clothiers located at 748 Azalea Drive in Shreveport. Modeled by Jaques Dawkins.
