A neutral shirt is always perfect for any season. We prefer L6142-C Tan from our Luxury line in place of Pantone 15-1040 “Iced Coffee”.

Spring Summer 2016′s Best Shirting Color

What’s the best shirting color for the upcoming warm seasons? Don’t hang up that Field Jacket just yet according to those in the men’s fashion field. From Fall and Winter in casual wear, the army green continues to stand out, Gents.

We’ve also begun to see olive green suits in lighter weight wools on the rise. This might be something to think about if you are ready to add a new suit to your collection this season.

As for shirting fabrics, the trendiest of the trends are now in all shades of green. Rather than camouflaging during the warmer months, however, we invite you to try shades of Sage and Jade to jazz up your shirt collection.

Sage Green L6143-C can be found in our Luxury fabric line.

Jade Green E11858A is located in our Custom Economy fabric line for only $79
Jade Green E11858A is located in our Custom Economy fabric line for only $79

Whether it be a stripe or a solid, Spring and Summer 16′s best new color is hands down, Green. Go get’em boys!

Dress Well! Be Well!

Layer Up your Spring Style

Spring is such a great time for those transition wardrobe pieces from the chilly mornings to the sunny afternoons.  Layering these pieces, however can sometimes seem a bit daunting. Some guys seem to just know how to layer. They always look clean and well put together. Here are a few tips for your Spring layering challenge.

1. Mix up your textures and patterns. Try a light tweed sport coat over a chambray shirt, a plaid coat and patterned scarf, or your softest cashmere V-neck over your shirt and tie with a pair of heavier twill pants.

2. Use accessories wisely. If thinking of wearing a suit with a lightweight scarf, try ditching the tie and wearing your collar open.

3. Give a trend a try. You may be sighting a few floral prints on men these days but that doesn’t mean you have to wear a floral button down shirt. Try a pop of floral in a tie.

4. Add color. Pair a crisp white shirt with a bold pair of chinos for instant style. Add a scarf and sunglasses for affect.

5. Or don’t. Try a minimalist monochrome layering technique. All shades of gray or tan.
