Upscale Outing Outfit
Why is it a Find? You’ll never go wrong with this versatile blue plaid sport coat from Peter Millar when you are headed out for a nice brunch – or any daytime event this season. The wool, silk and linen blend fabric is lightweight, offering that just-right Summer look and feel. And the quality and cut will easily withstand the test of time.
Wear it with: The mix of blue colors in the coat make it so easy to coordinate with the pieces we’re showing in this look (right and below) for a laidback, yet still upscale, look. If you want to further spruce it up, a white, spread collar dress shirt and solid navy or pastel tie make it instantly appropriate for a more formal brunch or evening event. Either way, a luxe white Italian 100% linen pocket square is a must.
Fit Tip: It is a modern fit, with plenty of room for most every gent.
Alternatives: If you prefer a trimmer, contemporary fit, this Brooks Brothers Milano fit blazer is for you.

Why is it a Find? We know figuring out how to mix patterns can be a struggle. But when it works, boy, does it look good. The blue and white Tattersall check pattern of this David Donahue shirt perfectly compliments the featured patterned sport coat (left), making just the right statement for a brunch or lunch celebration.
Wear it with: Besides the pattern sport coat we’re coordinating this shirt with here, it easily layers under a solid cotton sweater or a navy or tan sport coat. Great on its own too, it goes from the office to weekend wear with ease, whether you pair it with khakis or jeans.
Fit Tip: It is a classic gentleman’s fit, for ease and comfort.
Alternatives: This Ledbury shirt offers a similar look in a trimmer, contemporary fit.

Why is it a Find? Peter Millar’s linen and cotton blend fabric elevates these timeless flat front pants for a dressier look that works so well with the highlighted sport coat (above) – and will quickly work into your office and dining out wardrobe options all season long.
Wear it with: The blended linen fabric highlights the linen blend of the jacket – and ensures it won’t get that overly wrinkled look 100% linen gets once you sit down. These have a more polished, yet still natural, look. The neutral beige shade is so easy to coordinate with sweaters, sport coats and solid or pattern button up shirts. And as we always say, a good-looking belt is a must – this dark tan suede one is truly ideal.
Fit Tip: The fit is modern with a mid-rise and enough room for most every gent.
Alternatives: These Everlane pants are a great alternative if you are looking for a more contemporary, somewhat trimmer, fit.
