The Eleventy Guide to Business Casual

Since Eleventy launched in 2007, they’ve believed that “comfort is the new luxury.” Marco Baldassari, Founder and Creative Director of Eleventy, is an expert on how to be naturally stylish, comfortable, and professional; whether you’re working from home or in the office. Eleventy has embraced its natural Italian style and assembled a few tips that will ensure your Business Casual look is ready to be taken seriously.

If you’re looking to shop some of the key pieces from the article up front try the Eleventy Stretch Wool Jogger, the 3 Button Cardigan Sweater, the Short Sleeve Crew Neck Tee, or the Short Sleeve Polo. Or simply peruse our entire collection of Eleventy here.

Elevated Basics Style

The look on the left shows 3 key elements to achieve the perfect balance of comfort and style.

This jersey jacket is 100% knit jersey with natural stretch allowing for free movement – and is as comfortable as a sweatshirt.

Beneath it is a piece of elevated knitwear that is sophisticated and comfortable yet modern and professional.

The look also incorporates a stretch jogger pant, which balances the comfort of a sweatpant and sophistication of a dress pant.

Elevated Polo Style

An elevated Polo can take the place of a dress shirt, while offering a comfortable and casual feeling. Choose to keep the top button closed for a slightly more serious look.

Upgrade your T-shirt style

A Jersey Jacket provides the comfort of a sweatshirt with the look of a tailored jacket. A T-Shirt with beautiful details offers an intentionally modern look that bridges the Business Casual style (this is not your basic undershirt).

The brand is fiercely proud of its Italian manufacturing heritage; each one of Eleventy’s 94 Italian enterprise partners is a specialist in their field. We do our best to reduce Environmental Impact wherever possible – from certified Organic Cottons through to natural dye alternatives. The collection consists of refined staples which focus on timeless elevated looks, ease of wear and most of all a true reflection of the Made In Italy ethos.

GOTS is a textile production certification that limits the use of toxic bleaches, dyes and other chemical inputs during the production process of textiles. It is internationally recognized as the toughest organic textile standard because it goes far beyond verifying the organic farming process to include every step of manufacturing. This quality is used throughout the Eleventy collection, from cotton crewnecks & polos through to sweater and outerwear.
