While it is the middle of summer, and many people may stop spending on their summer wardrobe, this is the beginning of the time for summer sales.
Bonobos’s Blanket Stripe Oxford Cloth shirt is one of my favorite pieces from any collection. It has a cool faded look, and it is seems very reminiscent of old school Oxford shirts and woven shirts. It may not be on sale yet, but it is worth the price tag, and it offers a great fit to enhance the style of the shirt.
My second selection is from Sunny Sports. I recommend checking out their "Towncraft" shirt. It offers a similar pastel color palette as the Blanket Stripe shirt. It has faded stripes too. A bonus for this shirt is how it is on sale. Granted, the sale drops it down to the same price as the shirt from Bonobos.
This style shirt seems to be popular this summer, and it is understandable why. It is a relaxed look that can be worn with most things, especially a pair of bleached jeans.
So with a little over one month left in the summer, I hope I provided two options to consider to spruce up your wardrobe for the final here.
The L.A. Dodgers outfielder is adding fashion model to his Major League Baseball All-Star and Gold Glove honors.
Earlier I talked about fashion icons of the present, and I mentioned Dwayne Wade. A lot of athletes are stepping into this industry indirectly, and Matt Kemp could be one to look out for. He is just reinforcing this idea of who the current fashion icons are.
Shopping app House Account lets style-hounds browse and buy from top clothing shops around the U.S. via smartphone.
I just read this article, and this sounds like a really cool app I think you may want to check out. It is a better way to get in touch with some of your favorite, local stores. And it offers a new way to connect or patronize them.
For someone interested in the industry, this is something to definitely explore.
My next choice for sneakers this summer, and my most recent purchase, would be the New Balance Stadium Jacket 574 sneaker. This a great colorway that can go with most outfits but won’t be the traditional gray and white from New Balance. While this is my favorite color choice, there are many others to choose from. I highly recommend checking them out here.
I’ve often talked about how popular white sneakers will be this summer, so I usually talk about the classic Chuck Taylors. But my second choice for high tops would be these Nike Blazer high suede shoes. While I cannot find a place to easily buy them, if you are a girl, I would recommend checking out J.Crew.
Last year I mentioned the designer swimsuits produced by Orlebar Brown. While I still highly recommend them because they have really cool patterns and are high quality, there are swimsuits of a similar style offered by J.Crew. While they are not made by a swimsuit specialist, they offer a price point that is well below the price of an Orlebar Brown swimsuit.

(I would recommend the polka dot or honeycomb pattern.)
A lightweight cover that looks sharps, keeps inclement weather at bay and won’t cost you too much.
As the author mentions, this is a great all purpose jacket. Even better is that it is an all year piece, and since it’s colorways are khaki and blue, this jacket can be matched up with just about anything. You just need to be ready to be stopped by fashion bloggers.

I found this picture on J. Crew’s blog for three reasons:
1) This bomber jacket is a great jacket for these early spring days where one may need a light jacket.
2) I have to represent Colby any chance I get.
3) It gives off great retro vibes as well. Don’t be surprised if you see items like these in stores all over.
“The rise of social media means that these tiny little companies like mine have this global reach, which is [as] awesome as it is time-consuming,” he said of his company, during an onstage interview. “It’s a positive thing for our men’s business when it comes to selling more clothes and opening more dialogue.” For More

Now that Spring is finally appearing in Maine, I am seeing white Chucks out in public more than before. This is one recommendation I have for shoes for the coming months. They provide a great look with any outfit from the very casual to pretty formal. They are also a slimmer high-top sneaker, so they won’t make one’s ankles look as puffy.
And if they can help Danny Zucko get a letterman sweater, imagine what they can do for you.
