MEN'S LABOR DAY STYLE

28.08.14

For our American friends, this weekend signals the final salute to summer's dying days; it's Labor weekend. Inspired by the off-duty stylings of one of our favourite menswear bloggers - One Dapper Street - we've rounded up all the places and outfits to be seen in for celebrations. Wherever you are, and whatever you're doing, we're firm believers that men's Labor Day style should always be perfectly on point - below we show you how.

Marcel wears the Ditora nature print blue swimshorts

Heading for sunny climes and relaxing? Take your sartorial lead from Marcel Floruss by teaming brightly patterned shorts with a laid-back sweatshirt, and finish your look with a pair of iconic Jack Purcell trainers. It's sunshine style at its most effective and least complicated.

FOR DRINKS DRESSED UP

REISS RECOMMENDS: For a new season in men's style, we're ardent advocates of tonal grey dressing. So, if you're heading out to a semi-formal stylish hotspot, mix grey tailoring with more relaxed grey pieces. WHAT TO WEAR: the Charlie grey wool blazer, the Buxton window pane check trousers, the Perri grey V-neck T-shirt, the Sinoloa black leather tasselled loafers

WHERE TO WEAR

Head up high, and visit Le Bain which is a penthouse discothèque and rooftop bar situated in New York's The Standard hotel. Mingle with the fashionable people as you dance to the sounds of the venue's state-of-the-art sound system, and - if you're feeling adventurous - take a dip in the dancefloor's plunge pool.

FOR CASUAL DRINKS

REISS RECOMMENDS: Anchor your outfit with fine leather shoes, then pair with coloured denim slim-fit jeans, a classic crew neck-jumper and a fine leather bag for a touch of elegant yet understated practicality. WHAT TO WEAR: the Kenton grey crew-neck jumper, the Maurice slim-fit twill jeans, the Holt black leather briefcase, the Bawden tan leather brogues

WHERE TO WEAR

Located in the bustling heart of Brooklyn, head for Berry Park for a relaxed way to enjoy Labor Day’s festivities. Classic American and German cuisine is given a unique spin, while you’ll also find fourteen different beers on tap. A must-visit for its friendly and fuss-free atmosphere.
