WIndsor Classic Fit Shirt
Robert Graham
Sold by: Nordstrom

Fit Guide

Robert Graham is known for interesting prints and patterns. And this is no exception...take a closer look through the "shop it" button. This rich blue shirt has a tonal jacquard pattern in the fabric. So, you get the best of both worlds - subtlety and interest. This is a great sport shirt that could take your from a day at work (if you have a casual work environment), straight to drinks.

Blue: A Staple in any Man's Wardrobe, especially this Summer

Blue. What can we say? We are fans. We always have been. And the fact that it’s “fashion” color this Summer, doesn’t hurt. It’s a universally flattering color, and is appropriate in anything from a bright blue casual polo to a classic oxford blue dress shirt to a dapper navy suit. With 4th of July just around the corner, how could we resist?

Take a look and see what we mean. Throughout the week, pop over to our Fashion Finds to find some more great looks to buy for work (Tuesday), after 5 (Wednesday), and casual wear (Thursday).

If you like something, just click on the “Shop It” button to buy it from our suggested retailer.

A pop of this fresh blue will update any suit and will surely put a spring in your step. It's quite an eye catcher, with pure sophistication that will brighten up any suit. It looks great against a crisp, white shirt.

Burberry is known for their iconic plaid and we love how they've interpreted it for this trim fit dress shirt. Combining a rich blue with black gives you a lot of options for outfits. Wear this with dark suit and solid tie, or a smart pair of wool trousers.

Lacoste - Short Sleeve Classic Pique Polo
Lacoste is known for their signature crocodile - especially on their classic pique polo, the L1212. They do an unparalleled job of creating new colors every season, so we can’t resist picking up a few once it starts getting warm. They hold up to wash after wash, so they are well worth the price. Lacoste always offers a rainbow of colors – sometimes more than 50 each season. There are tons of blues to choose from this season. We recommend this Quantum blue – saturated, not too pale, not too bright - and the Rill Light Blue, for a classic Lacoste color. But the great thing about Lacoste is you can’t go wrong with any color that speaks to you.

J.Crew - Indiog Japanese Chambray Shirt
The denim shirt is new again. Now, we don’t necessarily suggest wearing it with blue denim jeans (though we are not saying there’s anything wrong with that, Jay Leno!), but it can be a tough look to pull off. However, we think it looks great with white jeans or a pair of colored cotton pants. Casual sneakers or flip flops and you are ready for whatever your Saturday or Sunday may have in store.

J.Crew knows how to do casual, and these shorts are no exception. The linen fabric makes them a little “nicer”, so your significant other won’t mind when you wear them out to lunch. Pair them with a great polo in any color.

We couldn't decide which shade of blue to show you - this one or the pale blue (click through the "shop it" button to see that one, too). What we know is that they are both great. These casual flat front pants from Tommy Bahama have the easier fit the brand is known for - and the high quality. While blue is a hot color this summer, there is no denying you will be able to wear them year after year. Pair with a neutral or be a little more adventurous with some patterned color.
