07.04.13

Just because the warmer weather is (hopefully) on the way, you don’t need to compromise your love for impeccable tailoring.

Our latest Menswear Diaries entry looks at how to master the art of suave summer tailoring with a little help from our SS13 collection.

1. Love Linen.

Linen is the ideal fabric for summer, as it is valued for its exceptional coolness and freshness in hot weather. Our Rushby suit in Air Force blue or grey combines style and practicality together perfectly whether you’re wearing it for work or a wedding. Team with a crisp white shirt and matching linen tie, or simply wear your shirt unbuttoned for a more casual approach.

2. Lighten Up.

Forget woollen suits in black or navy, summer is the perfect time to opt for lighter hues and different colours. Reiss’ lightweight Pinot blazer and trousers in sage is perfect for making a bold, fresh and modern style statement; don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone. As with most things you wear, if you don it with confidence you will pull it off effortlessly. So what are you waiting for? Lighten up this summer…

3. Statement Shoes.

No man’s sartorial summer look is complete without a pair of statement shoes.  From tasselled loafers and suede driving shoes to double monk strap shoes and slip on summer shoes, Reiss’ SS13 footwear collection has everything you need to put your best foot forward in style. Remember, when it gets too hot for socks don’t think twice about cutting them out of your look and rolling up your trouser cuffs.
