Suiting Essentials To Look Forward To This Summer

The summer season is fast approaching, and although this is not a time where wearing suiting is most celebrated, I thought I'd share a few suiting essentials I see most men gravitate to for the season. These items are typically straightforward summer standards that suit most daily settings no matter where you are in the world.

Four of those straightforward must haves extend below:

  • The Seersucker Suit

For those who are not familiar with the seer sucker fabric, it is a lightweight, and attenuated cotton fabric that is usually striped or checked - subtly of course. Point blank: The seersucker suit is fashionably attractive. It's a very controlled piece of clothing that can be just as relaxed, and as informal as it can be regal. 

  • The Linen Shirt

It's really simple. The linen fabric is one of the most lightweight fabrics you could wear when the weather is really hot. Made with the finest Italian linen, the shirts from Luca Faloni are downright excellent. 

  • The Loafers

Like peanut butter, and jelly, loafers, and the summer season stand cheek to cheek. I suggest having a variety of at least three options to get you through the season. One of those options should include tassel loafers like the ones sampled above. This specific style has been quite dominant in the menswear space since the 1930's, and it's easy to see why the reasons are valid. The style is exceptionally sumptuous. 

  • The Classic Timepiece 

During the fall winter seasons, I, like most men do not mind heavily designed timepieces. When it comes to accessorizing with said piece in the summertime, more simplistic lightweight options serve me just right. Any options from Carl F. Bucherer are sure to get it exactly right.
