May Two-Four is here, gents. Make the most of it by breaking out light, breezy menswear staples like white denim and soft seersucker. You’ll feel like you’re vacationing on the French Riviera — even if you barely leave home the entire long weekend.
Seersucker may have great texture and relaxed hand, but it always looks best used on more tailored pieces. This button-down is the best of both worlds — the oxford collar and slim cut give it the right amount or prep, while the half placket and short hem offer an enviable casual vibe.
If you have yet to give white denim a chance, now’s the time to take the plunge. Avoid anything too tight, and pick a more relaxed cut — like this tapered pair — so you don’t look like you’re trying to revive Jersey Shore. Opt for a slightly cropped inseam to show off a little ankle.
Classic eyewear shapes are classics for a reason — they look good on virtually everyone and manage to hold up year after year. But if you’re looking for a way to mix things up, choose a traditional shape rendered in unexpected materials — like the see-through acetate frame and slim, titanium arms of this pair.
We get it: men’s jewelry can be suspect sometimes. But you really can’t go wrong with this subtle, Southwestern-inspired silver feather bracelet. It’ll add just the right touch of flash to any look you pair it with, including this one.
A brown leather belt would be too heavy for such a breezy look, but a woven belt fits the bill. The pattern compliments the colours of the seersucker shirt, while the leather tabs are a substantial accent that will protect from wear and tear.
A woven leather loafer is a worthwhile investment, and Bottega Veneta makes one of the best options on the market. A little less formal than a typical penny or horsebit loafer, these are still versatile enough to pair with denim at the bar or a suit at an outdoor wedding.
