Why is it a Find? This awesome blue color gives your basic khakis that fashion update to make a classic style new again. AG uses garment-dyed fabric, which holds dye really well to create the rich shade, and finishes it for a slightly worn-in look that is just right. And it makes these pants seriously soft.
Wear it with: The brighter blue makes a sartorial statement at the office and at play. Of course, white, ivory, or soft grey shirts look great with these pants, but don’t be afraid to add try soft pink or yellow shirt, too. You can even add a tan linen blazer.
Fit Tip: The fit is contemporary but not skinny – just the right update for chinos.
Alternatives: These pants are also available in an array of neutral colors through the ‘shop it’ button. Alternatively, these Bonobos pants offers a similar look in an easier fit.

UNBIASED NEUTRALS.
Why is it a Find? In the warmer months, a light tan blazer is just as essential to your wardrobe as a navy one is year round. And this season’s popular primary and pastel colors make it indispensable. This Vince jacket is the perfectly neutral shade that goes with everything. The cotton/linen blend fabric and soft construction make it a very comfortable blazer with a perfect amount of attitude.
Wear it with: It can be used to dress up an outfit for the office or an event, while making a style statement as a third piece in a casual outfit. The soft white-tan color can be worn with your neutral pants – medium tan, olive, khaki, grey – as well as jeans in any shade. And, of course, this is a great jacket to ground bolder colors, like blue, green or red. Mixing it with other neutral tans and whites create a really sophisticated look.
Fit Tip: The fit is contemporary.
Alternatives: If you prefer an easier fit, this LBM 1911 blazer is a great option.

Why is it a Find? A neutral linen sweater is a key piece in any Summer wardrobe. It can dress up an office outfit, while working with a casual outfit on a cool summer evening, just as easily. Vince’s 100% linen sweater is one of our favorites. The classic design has a subtle contrast knit shoulder detail that takes it out of the ordinary, and shows off its luxe quality.
Wear it with: The heather steal shade we’re featuring here is a perfect neutral that works with everything. Layer it over a pattern button up shirt or solid t-shirt, and it’s just right with truly any color khakis, jeans, or shorts.
Fit Tip: The fit is modern. Most gents buy their normal size, but size up if you prefer an easier fit.
Alternatives: There are also a couple other neutral options through the ‘shop it’ button.

Peter Millar - Harkers Herringbone Regular Fit Sport Shirt
Why is it a Find? White has become a key fashion color. Both the fabric and design of this Peter Millar shirt rank it as the White Shirt Find of the season. The fabric is a very comfortable cotton/linen blend with a subtle herringbone pattern that adds texture and interest. The oversized military pockets, a current trend, add a casually sophisticated look, making it clear that this is not your white office dress shirt.
Wear it with: It is a shirt that can be worn to the office with khakis, in the evening with dark wash jeans, or on weekends with shorts. We are showing you an image of this shirt from Neiman Marcus. And through the ‘shop it’ button, you’ll see how easily it converts to a short sleeve shirt, by using the sleeve tabs and rolling the sleeves all the way up. Of course, you can always just do a casual roll of the cuff to mid-forearm, too.
Fit Tip: The fit is modern with enough room in the shoulders and body for most every gent.
