Classic Fit Wool Blend Blazer
Samuelsohn
Sold by: Nordstrom

Fit Guide
While blue is always an important menswear color, this spring it takes on added fashion importance. This classic fit blazer from Samuelsohn represents the best of the blue trend. The color is a summer navy, brighter than a traditional winter navy. The Italian fabric is a blend of wool, silk and linen which will keep you comfortable and looking good in warmer summer days. The white buttons pick up the other important summer color. The old world full canvas construction makes this blazer softer, very comfortable and ensures you will enjoy it for many years.

Simplifying This Spring’s Trends: How to Work Them Into Your Existing Wardrobe

At the beginning of a season people are always talking about what’s “in” for the season. But making sure you’re the hippest guy in the room isn’t necessarily the top priority. Most of us are not throwing out our entire closets and buying a new wardrobe for the season. Nor do we want to. Mark Shale is all about looking modern, but timeless. We don’t believe most trends (which is not one of our favorite words, as it implies something is a fad, instead of just something fresh) need to be qualified to a certain age group. It’s all about how they are interpreted to work into your wardrobe, so they can – and will – be items you can actually wear to work or an elegant dinner or brunch with your family. So this week, we’re taking 10 of the new fashion “trends” for the season and we’re breaking them down to the essentials for work, after 5, and casual days. Let’s simplify. What do we need to make our wardrobes look updated for the season, in ways that we can merge into our existing clothes? And in ways that will make us feel confident – not like we’re trying too hard. We believe in quality you can invest in. And that’s what these are.

Take a look at a few of our favorites here, and then head over to Fashion Finds, to see more of our Top 10 Essentials to update your work, after 5, and casual wardrobes this season.

From Bugatchi, this black and white geometric dobby pattern button up is a great example of the fresh patterns that we see this season. It’s a pattern that works at the office or for an evening out with friends. Wear it with black flat front cotton twill pants or dark wash jeans. The fit is modern with some shaping in the sides and great for most gents.

While white is always important once the weather warms up, this year, it’s truly the color of the season. To freshen up that arsenal of white shirts, look no further than this contemporary fit washed cotton poplin shirt from J.Crew. The fabric is from England’s Thomas Mason, one of the world’s premier fabric producers. The button down collar is short and modern. This is a shirt you can wear every day with every outfit – from jeans to khaki’s to shorts to sweats. It also looks great under a suit or sport coat.

Stripes are in. (Apparently tattoos are too, but we’ll leave that one up to you.) The British company, Native Youth, created a really fresh looking t-shirt that is one of our favorites of the season. The combination of stripes on a weighty, textured cotton knit fabric provide a perfect pairing of flattering style. Combined with the modern fit, it's great on most gents. The patch breast pocket is a nice finishing touch.

This cotton stretch sweatshirt from Hugo Boss has just the right amount of athletic inspiration. The zip front closure has a track jacket style and the nylon trim on the shoulders and pockets have that athletic feel. You can wear it like a sweatshirt with jeans and a t-shirt. But it’s polished enough that you can also treat it like a sweater, wearing it over a polo with jeans or khaki’s. The contemporary fit keeps the look trim and neat, perfectly balancing the casual sweatshirt grey color that works great with your jeans and tan, stone or white cotton twill pants.
