Keep your cool. Rather than focus on trim tailoring and starched dress shirts, a summer’s wardrobe is a more concerned with subdued colors, light fabrics and fresh prints. So gentlemen, bring out your cotton tees, linen trousers and patent leather loafers during the daylight and take those white suits out for the night. This summer 2016, comfort is uncovered by lightweight attention. It travels from day to evening. Look no further and find just how to shop for summer by experimenting with runway trends and trying out their looks right here.

 

Style Advice: Just because summer rallies a more relaxed sensibility does not designate a sloppy style.  The principle of summer fashion is unique to the heritage of menswear. This frenzy appears in the form of new fabric manipulation and recreations of the grandfathers’ styles of old.  James Perse’s Micro Twill Tailored Suit Jacket ($595.00) is a well-spent foundation. This cotton-blended piece a can be worn in complement to a full suit or stand alone as a separate piece to pair with sweat shorts ($105) — an item that seems hardly stylish. However, Saturdays NYC's style answers all your doubt. Made 100% of Cotton French Terry Herringbone, the fabric is designed to easily soak moisture and is commonly utilized in loungewear. Coordinate with a Simple Cotton-linen Sweater ($70.00) and your weekend brunch attire is settled. Flash some fancy footwear, a paten leather strapped loafer ($695) to add some gold to your casual dressing.

Must-Have: Call it a classic, a warm weather desideratum. The white blazer is that one and only piece that defines the formality of summer style. Color and Fabric reasons its credibility. White is the color pronounces a season of sun shined days concluded by moon lite, breezy evenings. Its light color beams a comfort hungered during humid afternoons stuck in the work office and enables a class of style aspired for at every black and white tie events forevermore. A tuxedo blazer will eternally remain a treasured piece. Ralph Lauren Purple Label’s Anthony Cream Dinner Jacket ($1995) is this season’s victor over all.  This pale color offers a nice alternative to white. The beauty of this shade, a pale ivory, will allow it to pass as white in moments more than one.

Industry Update: Now, more than ever does it deem appropriate to hold onto the inspiration received from the Menswear 2016 shows that premiered the last summer season. Late last week, Business of Fashion released this ground breaking news: Bottega Venta, Calvin Klein, Costume National, Ermanno Scervino and Zegna will not present collections at Milan Fashion Week Men’s in June. Such decision was made in efforts to change the rigid structure of the menswear industry. So it seems they may have just closed chapter in their business strategy. As the understanding of menswear design becomes experimental, so does the nature of its business. Fashion speaks to its times. This news reveals just how relevant fashion is to society: it is reflective and responsive to world news.
