Why is it a Find? T-shirts are a gent’s Summer staple and a great way to add bold color to your wardrobe. Bugatchi uses a super comfortable modal blended fabric that has a beautiful hand and richer look than a typical cotton t-shirt. This gives it a more polished look that not only works for a day of fun in the sun, but also for a casual evening out.
Wear it with: This vibrant yellow is easy to wear with neutrals like white shorts, jeans, or tan pants. But it compliments other bold colors too, so don’t be afraid to wear it with your colorful swim trunks.
Fit Tip: The fit is modern, ideal for most gents. Size down one size for a closer to the body fit.
Alternatives: Click through the ‘shop it’ button to check out all the amazing bold and neutral colors of this staple – it’s worth stocking up on.

Why is it a Find? Bolder color pants re-emerge as a way for gents to get into some warm weather style. The coral shade of these cotton twill jeans from AG is just right – not loud, and with a patina finish that gives the orange/red color a perfectly lived-in feel.
Wear it with: Appropriate in a casual office environment, and great for weekends and summer evenings, wear them with a white, blue, or pattern button up shirt for the office. You can even add a cotton or linen navy blazer. Over the weekend, throw on a t-shirt or polo.
Fit Tip: The AG Matchbox fit is modern with a narrower but not skinny leg. It’s just right for gents that want to look updated without being trendy.

Why is it a Find? Robert Graham captures the important seasonal shade of cobalt blue in these cotton shorts. Out on the golf course or at a backyard party, this is one masculine way to do color – and it’s a shade that revives every Spring/Summer so you’ll get plenty of wear out of them.
Wear it with: Let the color of these shorts be the star of your outfit, and pair them with an easy white t-shirt or linen button up.
Fit Tip: The fit is modern with a trimmer leg and length that hits just above the knee on most, appropriate for gents of all sizes and ages.
Alternatives: If you prefer a trimmer, contemporary fit, these shorts from UNIQLO are a great alternative.

Why is it a Find? Swim trunks are always a great place to wear color and Polo Ralph Lauren always knows how to do it right. This kayak green color is just awesome, perfectly working with the cream contrast stitching and drawstring.
Wear it with: Besides your basic white, grey, and navy t-shirts, yellow, pink or a great stripe will have you looking beach and pool ready.
Fit Tip: The fit is modern with an 8 ½” length that is appropriate for most gents – not too long or too short. The combination elastic back and board short front in the waist effortlessly combines comfort and style.
Alternatives: These swim trunks comes in several vibrant colors through the ‘shop it’ button. If you prefer a slimmer, contemporary fit, though, UNIQLO has a great alternative

Soft Shades.
Why is it a Find? Not sure about pink? This masculine shade will have you feeling downright confident about it. Peter Millar’s cotton zip neck sweater is perfect for the office, as well as cooler Summer days and evenings.
Wear it with: The shade of pink, not too pale or too bold, easily works with all your pale neutrals – tan or white cotton twill pants and khakis – yet gives your year round dark wash jeans a warm weather feel. From the picture, you can see how good-looking the neckline looks with a button down underneath, and a t-shirt will give it a more casual feel.
Fit Tip: The relaxed fit is comfortable, with room to layer a button down or t-shirt underneath with ease. Size down one size if you want a closer to the body fit.
Alternatives: This style also comes in a soft purple through the ‘shop it’ button. Both shades are truly spot-on for the season.

Why is it a Find? Linen is one of our favorite fabrics of the season, instantly adding texture and casual ease to your basic button downs. J.Crew uses a pale blue narrow stripe in this really fine Irish linen fabric from Baird McNutt – it’s soft, with effortlessly debonair character.
Wear it with: Don’t be afraid to layer up your linens. You can absolutely wear a navy or tan linen blazer over this shirt when you want to dress it up with flat front pants. On the weekend, pair it with your favorite broken-in jeans or shorts and play up the natural wrinkle of the linen.
Fit Tip: This is cut in J.Crew’s typically modern fit in Regular sizes XS-XL, but it also comes in Slim, so you can go with a trimmer fit if you prefer.
Alternatives: If you like an easier fit, this shirt from Brooks Brothers is a good option.

Why is it a Find? We are pretty obsessed with the playful attitude of this soft yellow polo from Psycho Bunny. Started 11 years ago by two designers from Ralph Lauren and Turnbull & Asser, Psycho Bunny adds a whimsical feel to classic menswear looks and has a strong emphasis on quality. The ultra-soft pima cotton and mother-of-pearl buttons make this an exceptional shirt, with a whole lot of style.
Wear it with: The shirt’s soft yellow color will coordinate with everything in your closet. Whether you pair it with pants or jeans, or shorts for a round of golf, there’s no doubt it will put a smile on your face when you put it on.
Fit Tip: Psycho Bunny’s fit is contemporary, for a closer to the body fit.
Alternatives: This polo comes in some great colors through the ‘shop it’ button – and the bunny is stitched in a different color on each. For an easier fitting polo in an array of soft shades, Peter Millar cotton lisle polo is a winner.

Why is it a Find? These are no ordinary shorts. Click through the ‘shop it’ button so you can really zoom in on the image. You’ll see the fabric is actually a very tight micro check pattern of lunar blue and white. Not only is that subtle design seriously good-looking, Bobby Jones has designed these shorts specifically with the golf course in mind. The polyester fabric is lightweight and moister wicking, so you’ll feel comfortable and look good for 18 or 36 holes.
Wear it with: This color looks great with white or grey, but we also like it with pale pink or yellow. On the golf course, a polo in any of those colors is easily appropriate, and on non-golf days, a button up shirt in those colors make these shorts street-wear appropriate.
Fit Tip: It is a gentleman’s fit, relaxed and comfortable for a day on the links.
Alternatives: If you like the color but prefer a cotton fabric, Polo Ralph Lauren has got you covered.

Neutral Tones.
Why is it a Find? This cotton/linen blazer from J.Crew is the ultimate neutral piece for every gent’s Summer wardrobe. It can be dressed up for the office or dressed down for the weekend or evening out. The fabric is great for warm weather and the soft, shirt sleeve-like construction adds to the casual feel that gives it such versatility.
Wear it with: The go-with-everything khaki color of this blazer works just as well with blue, olive and grey cotton twill pants, as it does with stronger colors like red, bright blue and bright green. And, of course, you’ll never go wrong pairing it with any of your jeans. Solid and pattern button up shirts dress it up for the office, while an easy t-shirt gives it a more casual vibe.
Fit Tip: This is cut in J.Crew’s Ludlow fit, which is their trimmer, more contemporary fit. And it comes in Short, Regular, and Long lengths.
Alternatives: If you prefer an easier fitting blazer, Robert Graham's khaki jacket is sure to please.

UNIQLO - Men Cotton Cashmere V-neck Sweater
Why is it a Find? UNIQLO’s medium grey v-neck sweater is one of our favorite Finds of the season. The cotton is blended with 10% cashmere, giving the lightweight cotton a seriously soft feel without adding any bulk. The slightly higher v of the neckline gives it a modern attitude, and there is absolutely no beating the price. UNIQLO excels at well-priced knitwear and this is one of their best.
Wear it with: The medium grey color goes with most everything. Stylishly chic with summer whites and tans, and a perfect balance to bolder colors, like red or blue. It is a perfect layer for the office when paired with a solid or pattern button up shirt, and a no-brainer over a simple white t-shirt.
Fit Tip: The fit is modern, universally for most gents in your normal size. For an easier fit, size up one size.
Alternatives: There is an array of stellar color options through the ‘shop it’ button, and this is a great place to stock up.

Converse - Jack Purcell Signature CVO Sneaker
Why is it a Find? These days, sneakers are not just for the beach and weekends. They are being worn to restaurants and even more casual office environments. These grey canvas sneakers provide both fashion and function. They are the classic Converse Jack Purcells, but with a heavier rubber sole and Nike’s Zoom Technology for additional comfort and support – a great update to the Converse you may remember. You can happily wear these all day long.
Wear it with: The neutral grey color goes with everything and is a smart looking alternative to white – that won’t look dirty after a wear or two. They look great with pants, jeans, and shorts alike.
