Tailored Waistcoat & Linen Pants

Menswear can get pretty complicated, but it’s really not that hard. Stick to the basics, keep your color palate classic, focus on fit, accessorize wisely and choose your fabrics seasonally.

When it’s too hot to wear a blazer, a waistcoat is the perfect solution for looking dapper on warm days. It’s also a good way to know you’re getting the most out of your three-piece suits and can be a fun piece for experimenting with contrasting fabrics and textures. Make sure it fits snugly around your torso and always remember to leave the bottom button unbuttoned.

Maybe it’s Tulum withdrawal, but I’ve been wearing my Panama hat a lot this summer. No menswear accessory has the ability to transform a look and silhouette quite like a hat. We’re actually shooting a segment on hats with my friend Alex from Goorin Bros. in the West Village very soon for our brand new YouTube series. Be sure to subscribe to the channel.

These linen trousers have been getting quite a workout this summer. One of my best investments in a while, they’re Made to Measure from Saks. Khaki chinos were my go-to pants for quite a while, but linen is much better for the summer and staying casually tailored.

    Is the waistcoat made in wool? I generally try to avoid mixing linen and wool as linen is a more casual fabric. What do you recommend in terms of matching fabrics?
