Spring’s Formula: Denim + Everything = 3 Outfits for Any Setting

The newest looks in denim this season involve interesting washes, colors, and silhouettes. Lighter, perfectly broken-in shades offer a fun look for casual days that create a perfectly laid back vibe with easy tees, polos, and sweatshirts. If jeans are approved for your office, we suggest a polished take on denim. That can mean an even, dark wash pair of jeans that looks great with a patterned button down or lightweight sweater. And it can also mean a soft, twill pair of jeans in a pale neutral or Spring color. These options both look great with an optional cotton or linen blazer, too, giving them life beyond the office – ideal for a nicer brunch or a night out. And on that note, jeans and denim styles always work when you’re heading out for the evening. A denim or chambray (which is a lighter weight) shirt is a great compliment to colored bottoms, including shorts, and is downright dapper under a sport coat.
These 3 outfits offer options that will take you from desk to dinner, and every casual outing this season.

Alternatives: If you prefer an easier fit, these Joe’s jeans are for you.

Tailored Outfit.
Why is it a Find? Since we’re talking denim this week, let’s talk about the perfect denim shirt. This one from Culturata, an amazing Italian company, is a blend of lightweight cotton denim and linen. The result is truly luxe, with rich color and texture. It makes a denim shirt office-ready, and the fine quality ensures it’s super comfortable.
Wear it with: Wear this denim shirt with a pattern lightweight sport coat, as we’re showing in this outfit, or go for a classic cotton or linen navy blazer when you’re heading to the office or a summertime outing. We’re suggesting to pair it with timeless cotton twill pants, but it also looks great with dark jeans – just ensure the wash is darker, not exactly matching. Of course, the high quality of this shirt makes it easy to wear on its own, and under a lightweight sweater, too.
Fit Tip: The fit is contemporary, keeping this denim shirt upscale and not overly casual.
Alternatives: If you prefer an easier fit, this J. Crew shirt is a great option.

BOSS Hugo Boss - Nold Trim Fit Windowpane Wool Blend Sport Coat
Why is it a Find? Hugo Boss creates amazing texture - using a mix of wool, cotton, and linen - that also makes this sport coat really comfortable in the warmer weather. The versatility of the denim-right shades of blue work with most everything in your wardrobe, making it a perfect Spring Find.
Wear it with: The chambray base color has a darker blue windowpane pattern that coordinates perfectly with the Culturata denim shirt (left). Or mix patterns by wearing it with this pink check shirt. The outfit we’ve put together here, pairs this look with cotton twill pants. You can also dress it up with wool trousers, or give it a more casual feel with jeans. Add a tie when you need a polished look for a dressier event or business meeting.
Fit Tip: The fit is contemporary for an updated look.
Alternatives: Peter Millar’s sport coat offers an easier fit and can be worn the same way.

Why is it a Find? Our regular followers know we are big fans of the Bonobos quality and fit. The soft peach cotton twill of these light grey flat fronts is as comfortable as you might imagine, yet styled in an updated, tailored cut for a just-right polished look.
Wear it with: The light grey color of these pants is such an easy neutral, just like the featured denim shirt in this outfit (above), so they are a perfect combination, and beautifully offset the Boss sport coat above, too. They work great with all of the button up shirts, sport coats and sweaters already in your closet, so you’ll reach for them over and over.
Fit Tip: Bonobos’ Tailored model has a contemporary fit that runs true to size. And they come in Tall, too.
Alternatives: There are lots of great Spring colors, including other neutrals, through the 'shop it' button. If you prefer an easier fit, go for these Hiltl pants.

Why is it a Find? Cole Haan does an amazing job of blending comfort and style in these wingtips. The light brown leather upper sits on a white rubber sneaker sole to give them a stylish, modern look. And the exclusive OS Grand technology, with a cushioned inner sole, makes them incredibly comfortable.
Wear it with: The neutral colors are just right for the outfit we’ve put together here, and look really smart with every warm weather palette. They work with jeans as easily as they do khakis, and the light brown vachetta leather will just get better and better looking every time you wear them.
Fit Tip: The fit is a bit on the narrow side. If you have a wide foot, size up.
Alternatives: They are also available in a great looking grey through the ‘shop it’ button.

Laid Back Outfit.
Why is it a Find? Jeans, especially in the warmer weather, aren’t just about denim. Jeans style - meaning, that 5-pocket design - is translated with super soft cotton twill in these Peter Millar pants. They have the right amount of stretch, and the fabric is breathable to ensure comfort on those hot days. In a soft British grey color, they are a great alternative to blue denim with an equal level of versatility. These will be your other “go-to other” jeans.
Wear it with: We’re showing them as part of a casual outfit here, but they go with everything - button up shirts, t-shirts, polos, sweaters, and even sport coats. So dress them up or down as needed.
Fit Tip: They have an easy modern fit that is great for the classic gent, who wants a timeless look that is still current.
Alternatives: If you prefer a more contemporary fit, these distressed light grey John Varvatos jeans are a really cool alternative.

Night Out Outfit.
Why is it a Find? Even in the warmer weather, a true dark indigo pair of jeans is any gent’s best friend for a night out look. These Joe’s jeans are not only the perfect dark shade, the whiskering gives them just enough of a “worn-in look”, so they don’t look stiff and brand spankin’ new. Part of Joe’s Kinetic Collection, they are made with a comfort stretch denim that is designed to reduce bagging during wear. So, the super soft fabric feels instantly comfortable, and will keep looking sharp after multiple wears.
Wear it with: For a night out, as we’re showing in this outfit, we suggest pairing these jeans with a patterned button up shirt. You can even add a dark blue subtle pattern sport coat or solid blazer for a dapper finishing touch. Add lace up oxfords, or chukka boots to complete the look. But don’t dismiss them for more casual looks, too. They add a polished vibe to a simple t-shirt and pair of modern leather sneakers.
Fit Tip: Joe’s Classic fit is comfortably modern, with plenty of room in the seat and thigh, and a straight leg that’s not too narrow.
Alternatives: 7 For All Mankind’s jeans are just right for a trimmer, contemporary fit.

Why is it a Find? Prints continue to be an important look, especially small scale ones, like this blue micro dot from Peter Millar. With a rich, sophisticated look that is great for any evening, the clean French placket and soft spread collar give it a well-dressed look.
Wear it with: Here, we’re showing you an outfit that pairs this shirt with dark indigo jeans. And it looks equally smart with grey, tan or stone cotton pants. Dapper on its own, we also love it layered under a solid navy sweater or sport coat.
Fit Tip: The fit is comfortably modern, ideal for most every gent.
Alternatives: If you prefer a trimmer, contemporary fit, this Zachary Prell shirt is a great option.

Why is it a Find? Simply put, how awesome are these Rodd & Gunn dark navy leather sneakers? As we’ve been talking about, the athletic look is the biggest trend in men’s fashion and especially footwear. The clean, plain toe and rich, dark leather - paired with a white rubber sole - make them a real standout that easily hold up to a dressier casual look.
Wear it with: Wear them with dark indigo jeans, like the ones above, and with the rest of your jeans and cotton pants, too. They instantly give a modern look to any casual office outfit and add a cool finish to your look for an evening out. (Tip: You can replace the white laces with basic, dark navy ones to further dress them up.) As is, they look just as good with shorts for any weekend day.
