Fit Guide
Why is it a Find? Few items are more essential this season to a gent’s wardrobe than a great looking cotton navy blazer. This unconstructed jacket from Vince is right on all levels, ensuring you’ll look great at the office, out to dinner, at summer events, and even on casual weekend outings - it is that easy to dress up or dress down. The cotton is blended with linen to add interest to the fabric’s texture. And it's garment washed to create a slightly worn-in look that is perfection. The open patch pockets and narrow (but not too narrow) lapels are just right. One of our favorite Finds of the season that will surely be one of yours, too.
Wear it with: This jacket does it all. Dress it up for dinner with cotton pants and a solid or pattern button up shirt. Add a cotton or linen tie for a polished office look or outdoor cocktails. Wear it with jeans and a t-shirt or casual button up for laid back outings. The fabric and cut looks great layered over cotton or linen sweaters, too.
Fit Tip: The fit is contemporary, for a polished finish to this versatile piece.

#1 Nautical Color.
Why is it a Find? Nautical colors re-emerge this season, with every shade of blue and white looking especially modern. Brooks Brothers’ solid cotton button up is far from ordinary. This beautiful shade of navy is highlighted by the subtle honeycomb texture of the garment dyed fabric, adding just the right amount of depth to the color.
Wear it with: Wear it layered under sweaters, as an accent color, or on its own with any of your pants, shorts, and jeans of the season.
Fit Tip: It comes in 2 Brooks Bothers fits: the Regent fit, which is their modern and most popular fit that has a slightly trimmer chest and waist for an update to their traditional cut; and the Milano Fit, which is their most contemporary fit that is slimmer for a more fitted look.
Alternatives: There are 3 other great colors through the ‘shop it’ button, too.

Alternatives: If you prefer a contemporary fit, these trim-fit Brooks Brothers pants are a great alternative.

#8 Practice Gear Inspired.
Why is it a Find? Gents, still unsure about joggers? Unsure of what that really even means these days? Let us help. With athletic inspirations, and the merging of casual and dress in today’s clothing, those old school sweats have gotten more polished in design– and those comfortable design elements, like elasticized waists and hems, have found their way to casual pants. And they’re all forms of joggers. These UNIQLO cotton pants are a perfect demonstration of the trend, done in an expertly non-trendy way. The button waistband is flat in the front to conceal the comfy elastic back, and the crisp garment-dyed twill cotton fabric balance the stylish hem detail.
Wear it with: Wear them as you would any casual pants, with t-shirts, hoodies and button up shirts. They look great with slip-on canvas shoes, flip flops, and sneakers - low or hi-top.
Fit Tip: The fit is contemporary, with a trimmer (but not skinny) leg. The elasticized bottom hits just at the ankle to make it easy to wear with sneakers, slip ons, and all casual shoes.
Alternatives: We are featuring the khaki color (called 32 Beige through the ‘shop it’ button) and there are a few other equally neutral – and versatile - colors through the ‘shop it’ button, too.

#9 Dapper Duds.
Why is it a Find? No matter the season, a good-looking suit is a must. This one from BOSS Hugo Boss has a subtle pattern in a seasonally ideal weight wool. The dark blue shade is just right for both important business meetings and formal events, offering just the right versatility required when investing in a suit.
Wear it with: Since the pattern in this suit is understated, it is easy to accessorize with both pattern and solid shirts and ties. For more formal occasions, we recommend a spread collar white dress shirt and solid or small pattern tie. For a daytime business meeting, a pattern dress shirt with a coordinating tie is a really smart look.
Fit Tip: The fit is contemporary, for a trim and dapper appearance.
Alternatives: If you prefer an easier fit, go for this Samuelsohn suit.

#10 Dapper Duds.
Why is it a Find? Never underestimate the power of a sport coat. Robert Graham hits all the right notes for the season, using updated shades of blues, and a wool and linen blend fabric to do the two things every gent wants from a sport coat: 1. Throw it on to dress up your jeans; 2. Create a polished finish for the office or Springtime event. Done and done. The style details give this warm weather jacket a casual feel, while retaining a polished look for dressier needs.
Wear it with: This sport coat is simply so versatile. It’s great with dark wash jeans, khakis, and linen pants. Layer it over a white or heather grey t-shirt for a casual weekend look, while a white cotton or linen button up shirt creates a smart look for the office or evening out. For a dressier event or business meeting when suits aren’t necessary, pair it with dark grey wool pants, a dress shirt, and tie.
Fit Tip: The fit is modern with enough room for most every gent to feel comfortable and look polished.
Alternatives: : If you prefer a trimmer, contemporary fit, this Hugo Boss sport coat is a great option.

This modern take on a classic design offers useful versatility and just the right amount of fun style for a day at the office or anywhere.
Wear it with: The navy color makes it easy to wear with most every top and bottom in your arsenal. Effortless with any button up and cotton pants for the office, it adds unexpected polish to a great-looking t-shirt and your favorite jeans, shorts and even joggers.

#12 Third Piece.

Whether you need it to finish an office look, want something to wear for dinner plans, or just for hanging out on the weekend, this sweater easily conforms. The ribbing details on the shoulder, sleeves, and neck subtly step it up from a basic.
Wear it with: We’re featuring the perfectly neutral pale smoke grey color that goes with everything – your other neutrals, as well as pops of Spring color. Layer it over a t-shirt or button up, and finish your look with jeans, linen or cotton pants, even shorts.

#13 Denim Details.
Why is it a Find? Meet your new best friend. Peter Millar’s dark chambray shirt has the richer look of denim, with the soft comfort of lighter weight, cotton chambray. The spread collar and French placket give it a dressier finish, making it easy to wear with a sport coat and on its own.
Wear it with: It layers so well under any color or pattern, so it will work with all your sweaters and sport coats for a day at the office. The denim color holds up on its own, too, whether you pair it with neutral or colored pants. And yes, you can even wear it with jeans – do it with a dark wash that doesn’t match too closely. This is a seriously useful shirt.
Fit Tip: The fit is modern, with enough room in the chest and waist for most every gent.

#14 Denim Details.
Why is it a Find? Lighter wash jeans continue to be an easy and stylish look for the Spring and Summer. AG captures a worn-in, modern look without excessive whiskers and abrasions. The lighter wash has a Spring feel and clean look that holds up for a casual office environment and every weekend day.
Wear it with: Wear it with everything from solid and pattern button up shirts and t-shirts, to sport coats and cotton sweaters.
Fit Tip: Cut in AG’s popular Matchbox model, these jeans have a modern fit, so the leg and seat have an updated, narrower fit that still isn’t skinny. We recommend it for every gent that wants an updated look, without a truly skinny fit.
