Essentials: 7 Timeless Summer Staples Every Man Should Own

Oxford Shirt in Pink or Light Blue

A slim cut longsleeve shirt in pink or sky blue is a staple in a man's smart and casual wardrobe. In summer it works just as well under a blazer for a day at the office as it does with jeans or chinos for a day out.

Colored Shorts

Tailored shorts in colorful but not overly bright hues are a staple in any gent's warm weather wardrobe and your go-to option for looking smart and cool even on the hottest day.

Linen Blend Blazer

Warm weather calls for lightweight layers. A linen blend suit jacket provides comfort and breathibility and is perfect for smart-casual occasions.

Khaki Chinos

Chinos are the workhorse of the summer. A khaki version is extremely versatile and will go with just about anything.

Denim Jacket

A jean jacket is a timeless menswear item. In summer, it's the perfect outerwear.

Boat Shoes

Boat shoes are the definitive summer shoe and your go-to do-anything casual footwear.
