Previously on the Gentleman’s Gazette, we discussed how to maximize the use of white in your wardrobe, particularly during the summer months. If you’re still on the fence about trying white, the colors of off-white, cream, ivory or beige can be your gateway to lighter colors. They are also remarkably appropriate for all season wear.
For many men, dress shirts are an essential part of their wardrobe. It’s probably one of the first things they put on in the morning before they go to work.
There’s an endless choice between colors, fits, collar styles, cuff styles, and lots of other details that you can and must choose. At the moment, I have about 100 dress shirts in my collection and over the years, I had many more. I sold them and got new ones and so I learned a thing or two about dress shirts.
In a previous article in The Gentleman’s Gazette, we discussed the nature of summer fabrics including linen, seersucker, and fresco; it remains essential reading as we hit the “Dog Days” of summer. In this follow-up, we take a closer look at other aspects and properties of these fabrics as well as some specialty materials that make for excellent summer wear for men who like dressing up no matter the temperature.
