The Suit (The Core Piece of the Outfit). A dark, dressy lightweight wool suit is the key to get a gent through his more formal, after 5 summertime events. The very subtle pattern and texture of the fabric that Hugo Boss uses is ideal to pair with dress shirts in muted solids, white or pattern. The versatility carries over to ties, as solids and patterns will work, making this suit your “go-to” for those Saturday evening weddings or other formal events. The contemporary, 2-button fit creates a sleek, slim line that is polished and sophisticated.

The Shirt. Creating a crisp formal look with the featured suit in this outfit is a snap with this Hugo Boss white spread collar shirt. The shirt’s subtle herringbone texture and French cuffs take it out of the ordinary and give it a formal, nighttime look. The contemporary fit ensures it will lie smoothly under the suit and not be too blousy.

The Shoes. If you don’t have on a great-looking pair of shoes, all the work you just put in on your outfit will be for nothing. These perforated cap toe shoes from To Boot New York will save you. The classic, yet updated styling is good for a formal affair, as well as an important business meeting, so you’ll get plenty of use out of them. They are extremely well made, in Italy, and really comfortable so you will be able to benefit from them for years to come.

The Cool Breeze Layer (The Core Piece of the Outfit). Even once the weather warms up, you need a great lightweight sweater for those cooler evenings or time spent in an air-conditioned restaurant. This cotton and linen v-neck from Joseph Abboud Limited Edition has understated elegance in its grey and tan textured combination that is signature Abboud. Soft neutral pieces that tie in to the pattern here create a stylish and masculine summer outfit for any easy night out. The modern fit looks great on most gents, but if you prefer a truly relaxed fit, we suggest you size up.

The Shirt. The soft grey color of this 100% linen shirt from Vince is a perfect compliment to the tan, grey mix of the Abboud sweater featured in this outfit. The fabric is soft and a bit more refined than most linen shirts you will see, so it will look just as good on its own with your favorite dark wash jeans, twill pants or even shorts, as it does with this outfit. The versatility and easy, contemporary fit make this a winner for every gent.

The Pants. These flat front pants from Bonobos are made from a cotton and linen wheat colored fabric that has the perfect texture and light weight to work with the sweater and shirt in this outfit. And most importantly, they will have you looking great and feeling comfortable for a night out. Bonobos always delivers on the pants front, since the line was initially based on just that. They offer two fits in these pants, both of which are great, and the quality for the price can’t be beat. Go with ‘Slim’ for a contemporary, but not too trim fit; choose ‘Straight’ for a modern fit with an easier, straight leg.

The Shoes. Playing into the timeless tans and greys of this outfit that are very of the moment this season, mens clothing designer Todd Snyder has partnered with Cole Haan for these dapper grey nubuck shoes that we absolutely love. The rich grey shade of the upper has great contrast to the tan leather sole. While these shoes are amazing with all the soft neutrals of the summer, they look equally good with jeans and even subtle pops of color.
