One of the easiest ways to get in on the white wave is with a timeless flat front pair of cotton pants. The crisp white color updates a standard basic in your wardrobe and makes it a key statement item for the season that is modern and updated, yet just as versatile as those khaki ones you already have. Wear them with a pop of color, simple white, or any neutral. Bonobos does it right with a summer weight cotton and 3 fit options, so every gent can snatch these up. ‘Tailored’ is the trimmest fit, ‘Straight’ is the standard fit with a straight leg and ‘Slim’ sits comfortably in the middle. For these white pants, we suggest ‘Straight’ for the modern gent, and ‘Slim’ for the contemporary gent.

White is always a popular color in the warm weather – t-shirts, polo’s, a great linen button down. But this season, it’s really THE white hot color.

And we’ll do it by taking some of our favorite pieces and showing you how to wear them with other neutrals, as well as some of the best pop colors of the season.

We don’t recommend a true white sport coat everyday of the week, but the cotton seersucker fabric of this JKT New York blazer has us singing its praises. Click through the ‘shop it’ button to zoom in and see the great texture – it takes the precious feeling right out of it that, along with its relaxed construction, making it ideal for an afternoon or evening out. We like it best with jeans, tan or grey twill jeans, or a dapper pair of linen pants. And a colorful button up in pattern or solid complete the look.

Vince - Cotton Cashmere Jaspé Stripe Crew Neck Sweater
The heather grey stripe mixes with white for an easy, always appropriate, way to incorporate the white trend in to your wardrobe. Vince knows how to do fashion that doesn’t feel like you’re trying to be that fashion guy, if you know what we mean. And the high quality and “everygent” fit makes it a favorite. You can play up the white by wearing this cotton sweater (that has just a touch of cashmere for added softness) with white pants. But it’s an easy pick with your favorite jeans and a simple white t-shirt underneath – ideal for a casual Friday or any day of the week.

Peter Millar’s classic fit cotton and cashmere zip neck vest looks just as good for the office as it does on the golf course. The white is a softer shade of ivory that is summer ready and coordinates with tan or light grey cotton pants with ease. Whether you pair it with a patterned sport shirt for the office, or a solid polo for a round of golf, you’ll get plenty of use out of it.
