    Would probably mean button down shirt with pants, but not jeans.

    When in doubt, you can't go wrong with these wardrobe staples - a white button down shirt, a navy blazer and khakis for summer and gray wool trousers for winter. No need to be trendy. For your event, an even safer bet would be steak sauce colored pants.

    Agree, creased slacks with a nice shirt, not even sure a polo would do, perhaps under a sport jacket. It means a man doesn't have to wear a tie, but he comes pretty close. Leather shoes, no joggers, though nice mocs or loafers would do for a preppy look.

    I believe it means "smart casual" - so a shirt with a sports coat would be my best bet.


    Something like this...

    Agree. I think they meant to use the term "business casual."

    upscale attire refers to dressing up for social occasions. youll probibly wear something that you usually wear during a party or during a dinner with friends.

    i love my apparel design major. :3

    Dress denim can be described as upscale casual attire paired w/ a bttn dwn and blazer. It's at a bar and grill not a country club.

    I think that it means that whoever wrote it had absolutely no idea what they were writing.

    Business casual. Collared, white or color long sleeve shirt. No tie. Dark semi-dress pants. Optional jacket.

    Oh, Webster.. I'd be careful letting Mr.Kressley dress you,, he might have you in Pink Cords with a plaid belt and a pop-up collar and then with that sexy chest you have ,, he might decide to give you extra "Joushing" before he turns you loose!

    I'm guessing this is about 5,,6 yrs. ago?



    Now that photo should be enlarged and framed and displayed prominently on a wall. I remember Carson did like Club Monaco a lot during Queer Eye. That might be a good place for Webster to find some upscale casual.

    Yes, I would agree that it is the equivalent of 'smart casual". You should definitely go with a sports jacket/blazer and/or V-neck or crew neck sweater. And then depending on the venue or occasion, wear very nice jeans or preferably European-cut dress pants with a fashionable, button-down shirt. Fashionable does not equate to following the latest fad.

    Consider Zara, J. Crew, Espirit or Banana Republic.
