By combining A ‘smart’ and B ‘casual’ the individual can arrange an ensemble of extreme versatility. This weeks issue of The Rail* looks at intwining both of these elements to create concept that is not restricted to day or night. Reinforced by a wax coat the indigo denim and cashmere cardigan offer solidarity in comfort. While the white shirt and monkstrap boot portray a smart alternative. Creating what is the perfect combination of both A and B.
