Important Meeting Summer Outfit.
Why is it a Find? Looking your best for an important meeting often means wearing a suit. This Brooks Bothers Italian wool suit lets a gent dress up, while still projecting a comfortable Summer look. How? They have taken out most of the internal structural components of the jacket to create a less structured, easy fitting suit. The result is all business, and season right.
Wear it with: The rich blue color of this suit is seriously easy to accessorize. For an important business meeting, wear it with a solid or pattern dress shirt and tie. For a less formal look, wear with a bolder pattern dress shirt and skip the tie.
Fit Tip: Brooks Brothers Regent fit is modern, with a slightly trimmer jacket and pants, to create an updated but not skinny fit in your normal size.
Alternatives: It is also available in a really great dark navy plaid

Brooks Brothers - Golden Fleece® Regent Fit English Collar Mini Gingham Dress Shirt
Why is it a Find? From Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece collection, this luxurious mini gingham dress shirt is a tasteful power shirt for that important business meeting.
Wear it with: The English spread collar works with or without a tie, and the subtle color and pattern not only work with the featured suit (left), but can also be worn with grey, tan, or olive Summer suits or sport coats. It also looks great on its own with khakis or jeans on those Casual Summer Fridays.
Fit Tip: We are featuring the Regent fit, which is Brooks Brother’s modern fit. It has a slightly trimmer fit in the body than the original Brooks Brothers fit, offering an update that looks great on most every gent. It is also available in their Milano fit through the ‘shop it’ button, which is trimmer and more contemporary.
Alternatives: If you prefer a trimmer, contemporary fit, this David Donahue shirt is another sharp option.

Any Summer Day Work Outfit.
Why is it a Find? A casual cotton or linen sport coat that can be worn with jeans or khakis is simply a must for every gent’s Summer work wardrobe. This Peter Miller jacket fits the bill with timeless style. The linen fabric has a fine-line stripe to it that creates a wonderful visual texture that still reads as a neutral. It is softly constructed and lined for true comfort. Linen doesn’t have a crisp, pressed look, but Peter Millar’s high-end quality also won’t be sharply wrinkled – creating perfect casual attitude.
Wear it with: The blue and white color combination makes it easy to coordinate and dress up or down. In this outfit, we’re showing an everyday work look, with a simple white button down (right), blue flat front pants (below), and a sharp pair of shoes (below, right). It is also great with jeans and a white t-shirt or polo for a more casual day. And of course, any of your casual cotton pants will work. You can also pop a little color with a yellow or pink oxford button up.
Fit Tip: The fit is modern with plenty of room for most gent’s comfort.
Alternatives: This Brooks Brothers Red Fleece sport coat is another great option, if you prefer a trimmer, contemporary fit.

Why is it a Find? The fabric in these Joe’s jeans are made of a blend of cotton, lyocell (that makes them soft) and stretch to create an ideally lighter weight denim. No need to drop jeans from your summertime wardrobe once you have these hanging in your closet. The dark wash has sanding and whiskering details to provide a broken-in, but not overly casual look, that is just right for a casual office day and straight out for drinks.
Wear it with: These jeans go with everything. Besides the outfit we’re showing here, you’ll wear them with any button-ups, t-shirts, polos…you get the idea. They also hold up to cotton and linen sport coats with ease.
