Top Gents’ Fashion Finds from Our (& Your) Favorite Websites

We are always focused on sharing our edited version of modern and appropriate fashions from all over the web. This week, with our one-year anniversary upon us, we want to thank you for getting to know us through the New Mark Shale, our new model of offering online fashion advice and shopping options. So, we’re focusing on just a few of our (and your) favorite websites that we “shop” with you and for you. In “Clothes & Conversation” this week, we broke down all the details of what makes each of them so special. And here, we’re giving you our favorite fashion finds of the week for each.
As you know, we will direct you to each of these sites through the ‘shop it’ button below each product, where you can then purchase directly from that retailer. Let us know what you think in the comments below and on social media. We’d love to hear how your thoughts – on these sites, the new way we’re shopping together, anything. Remember, whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

Nordstrom. The soft, less structured construction and 100% linen fabric of this Peter Millar sport coats gives a gent a lot of dressing options. Wear it with jeans and a polo, grey wool pants and a shirt with tie, or tan linen pants and a white linen shirt. The modern fit works on every gent, and will take you from your desk to dinner in style.

Nordstrom’s website also has one of the largest dress shirt selections in both modern and contemporary fits. This red and blue plaid from Bugatchi has a contemporary fit that looks great with navy, tan or grey sport coats and sweaters with its timeless Summer pop of color. You can even add a solid navy knit tie to dress it up. The pattern and contrast cuff and under collar details make this a versatile piece, since it’s also rugged enough to wear with jeans or khaki’s. This is solid choice to add some color to your wardrobe.

John Varvatos Star USA is a favorite for its contemporary styling and quality that exceeds the price. This cotton and linen polo will give any gent confident style for a casual office day or weekend outing. The contrast top stitching and oiled blue color add a level of sartorial know-how to a wardrobe staple that will work with anything from cotton pants to jeans to shorts in a pop of color.

J Brand - Kane Slim Fit Cotton Twill Pants
J Brand is a great resource for contemporary jeans style, and Nordstrom carries a great assortment for us to pick from. The Kane model, J Brand’s most popular, is modern with a lower rise and trimmer straight leg that still has plenty of room in the seat and thigh. It’s a great fit for most gents and this auburn taupe color provides a stylish alternative to a pair of flat front chinos. Plus, the soft brushed texture will feel like you’ve had them for years as soon as you put them on.

Nordstrom is best known for its vast shoe selection, and for good reason. The online selection is even larger than the in-store selection, which can be daunting (but knowing your brands and styles help, which makes it pretty exciting to us). This Timberland is one of our favorites for its dapper twist on a plain toe oxford. The dark brown leather is produced by Horween®, one of the world’s finest tanners, and combines with a dark denim inset and contrasting tan leather sole that can be worn with everything from jeans to wool dress pants. It’s a great way to bring some style to your look in a subtle way.

Neiman Marcus. Neiman’s selection of polished sweaters is a great place for us to find options that will work for casual office days and relaxed evenings. This 100% linen navy cardigan from Peter Millar is just right for twill pants or jeans over simply any button down. The luxe fabric and fine design details like a stand up collar, front patch pockets, and contrast ribbing on the placket show off the high quality – this will be a sweater you reach for year after year.

We are fans of Neiman’s dress shirt assortment, offering luxury brands we’ve enjoyed for years, like Robert Talbott, Ike Behar, Eton of Sweden and Ermenegildo Zegna. This red micro-gingham check with a blue windowpane has all the fine design details we expect from Eton, including a slightly curved spread collar and mitered cuffs. While people might not notice those specifics, they will notice how polished and dapper you look, whether you choose to wear this contemporary fitting shirt with a navy or tan sport coat/suit or with jeans. The quality and timeless style is unsurpassed.

Neiman’s has an excellent selection of jeans, too. The slight whiskering and fading on these dark wash Citizens of Humanity jeans is just light enough for the warm weather, but polished and rich for year round wear making them a easy ‘go-to’. They are the Sid model, which has a straight leg and modern fit that is an easy way to update your denim wardrobe, while still getting all the comfort you are used to from your old favorites.

J.Crew - Ludlow Suit Jacket with Double Vent
J.Crew. Using fabrics from fine mills from around the world, J.Crew is a solid resource for reasonably priced suits and sport coats with sensible modern styling. This 2-button wool suit is made in a charcoal fabric from an Italian mill that has been in business for 150 years. And that’s what makes us fans. The Ludlow fit is J.Crew’s slimmer, contemporary fit. It has narrower lapels, with a shorter jacket length that gives it an updated and modern look, ideal for all your business and formal event needs. The pants are sold separately (also through the ‘shop it’ button at the bottom of the page), making for an easy fit.

J.Crew has always been a ‘go-to’ for button up shirts, especially gingham ones. With such a large assortment, we do like to pick through to find the ones that have the best quality. This pale grey version delivers in a 120’s cotton. The number basically refers to thread count, so higher numbers often mean a smoother, silkier feel. The spread collar makes it easy to wear with your grey suit or sport coat, and J.Crew’s style sensibility also allows it work with simple jeans and khaki’s. It’s done in J.Crew’s Crosby fit, which is designed for an athletic build so you’ll get more room in the chest and upper arms – great for any gent looking for a little more room, whether you are a gym rat or not.

J.Crew - Short-sleeve Reverse Sweatshirt
Short sleeve sweatshirts are a new casual look this season. J.Crew’s interpretation reverses white fleece fabric to create depth and textural interest on the outside in a completely cool and casual way. The grey contrast trim grounds it resulting in a simply great looking, lightweight fleece t-shirt. Wear it with your jeans, shorts or as a shirt with your swim trunks.

Zappos. Zappos has most of our favorite shoe lines, including To Boot New York. Made in Italy, they have sleek and modernly sophisticated styles that update any look. The soft black leather upper and lugged sole make this pair an excellent finishing touch to any jeans and khaki’s.

This striped polo is an easy choice to wear with your favorite jeans and shorts. The cerulean blue color, shorter 2-button placket and contrast collar give a warm weather staple a nice update without being trendy.

Every gent needs a great pair of khaki shorts to get through the Summer. And Joe’s Jeans makes one of our favorites. In a stone washed twill, the fit is modern with a lower rise and narrower leg, so these shorts look updated. But with a 9” inseam that hits just above the knee, they aren’t too “fashiony”, so they’re perfect for any gent.

As we’ve talked about in the past, athletic looks are a big trend in menswear. It is now perfectly acceptable to incoroporate a great looking pair of sneakers (or sweatpants or a hoodie) in to your casual wardrobe that goes way beyond the gym and the couch. These sneakers from New Balance combine the best of both the fashion and function worlds. We like them because the lower profile, silver and black mesh upper, and white sole look great with your weekend jeans and shorts. Runner’s World likes them as one of top running shoes for 2015 for their added cushioning, stability and road feel. So, it’s a win-win when you grab a pair of these.

East Dane. Rag & Bone’s contemporary fitting jacket is a blazer and outerwear piece, rolled into one fashionably dapper piece. The lightweight, polished cotton and 3 patch pockets make this a statement piece that is also highly functional and versatile. Whether you wear it as a sport coat or as true jacket, it looks just great, especially with dark wash jeans or stylish twill or linen pants. Anything from a button up shirt to a lightweight sweater or t-shirt look just right underneath it.

Polos are always an important part of a gent's Summer wardrobe. Scotch & Soda’s unique take looks like stripes, but is actually a series of closely spaced dots and dashes. Click through the ‘shop it’ button to zoom in and check it out for yourself. The result is a cool update that, in a contemporary fit, gives a polo a fresh feel that looks great with jeans or shorts, and can even work if you need to throw a sport coat on over it.

A briefcase doesn’t need to look stuffy – just take a look at this slim version from Jack Spade. The mix of grey oxford weave fabric and tan leather is polished and distinctive.

Vince. Vince is known for their high quality t-shirts in their perfectly modern vibe. This 100% linen v-neck is just what you need when searching for a t-shirt with a more polished feel. The contemporary fit, luxe fabric, and higher cut of the neckline make this a t-shirt that can be worn with jeans, good looking shorts, and linen pants – even under a sport coat – for anything from a barbecue to drinks and a casual dinner. It comes in several colors, and they’re all great. If you’re only going to choose one, start with this heather navy which is an easy neutral for dark wash jeans and white ones, shorts of any color, and navy or tan sport coats.

Vince - Linen Cotton Drawstring Shorts
We always think of Vince for their great knits, sweaters, and shirts. But they also make some really interesting pants and shorts. These contemporary fitting linen and cotton drawstring shorts show off Vince’s modern and sporty aesthetic perfectly. The texture and finish of the fabric dresses up the pull-on style, as does the side entry and back pockets. We won’t be recommending jean shorts any time soon, but the indigo color we’re highlighting here have the same versatility of your favorite jeans so you can wear these comfortable shorts with any of your favorite t-shirts and they still look great with a button up shirt, too.
