Dressing for springtime friends-and-family gatherings often presents more pressure than it needs to. You want to look nice, but don't always need to be in full formalwear. Here's how to dress for some of the situations you might find yourself in this Spring—no matter what they are.

To Brunch 

You can wear a collared shirt and a jacket without having to wear a suit. These button-downs are super versatile, the chinos have just a little bit of interest to them with the subtle pleating, and the jackets pull it all together. A pair of slim-fit dyed jeans are always another great option for pants. Keep the look clean and easy with a pair of black Chelsea boots or leather wingtip brogues.


To A Family Event

You want to look nice around the fam, but don't want to feel uncomfortable. A lightweight sweater, chinos, and high-top sneakers are the perfect way to do it. A dark gray jacket and classic watch make it a full, no-fail outfit.


To A Graduation Ceremony 

Guest of a grad? For those occasions when you do indeed need to wear a suit, here's how to keep it easygoing. Many spring events don't require dark, heavy suits, so there's no need for you to wear one. Instead, a lightweight fabric feels much less formal but looks just as put-together. Pairing it with a polo and colored kicks gives it a stylish, completely un-buttoned-up edge. Add sunglasses for good measure.

To A Wedding

Whether you’re in a wedding, or attending as a guest, when it comes to wedding day fashion no one tux fits all. While the classic black-and-white tux will always fall into the dapper category, there’s nothing like a man willing to take a risk. Work with one of our Master Clothiers to create your own custom look.
