While black has been and still is a staple color for most of my sartorial lifetime (my friends complain I wear it too much), I often gravitate towards all neutral shades of blue and navy. It's a color that knows no seasons, just like black, and comes in varying shades and textures that can be easily styled for any occasion.

When my friends


, Shawn and


joined me for a daytime outing on top of a penthouse rooftop, I decided to recreate my own version of the Canadian tuxedo styled with a luxe but loose linen denim shirt and fitted, patch-work jogger trousers all from

Matiere's SS14 collection

. Both the fit and colors are appropriate during transitional weather climates, making it ideal pieces for mixing and matching. Personally, for me, I prefer the

onesie jumpsuit effect
