There sure are a lot of things to love about the Summer 2016 Collection. In this post we’ll highlight a few of our absolute favorites, courtesy of the people who created them. We think you’ll understand exactly why our buyers like these styles so much, and we hope you like them too!
We spoke to our Dress Shirt Buyer, Michael, who told us that his number one pick from the Summer 2016 Collection is the 2-Ply Cotton Large Grid Spread Collar Dress Shirt. He says, “This shirt for me is ‘Summer perfect.’ The pastel green and blue colors combined with open plaid pattern make it a sure Summer winner!” Thanks to the versatility of its Windsor Spread Collar, easy button cuffs, and its seasonally appropriate shades and grid pattern, this is one dress shirt you’ll wear over and over.
We also talked to our Shoe & Accessory Buyer, Allison, and asked her which style, in her opinion, stands out above the rest: “My favorite would have to be the Paisley Woven Italian Silk Tie. I love this style because the ground of the tie appears to almost have a denim effect that gives it a nice distinction from a traditional twill or satin ground yet still looks elegant and sophisticated when mixed with the rich lavender and purple hues in the paisley design.” Distinguished dressers know that it’s often the accessories that make a good look spectacular, and this tie is that exceptional accent.
Our Tailored Clothing Buyer, Jess, pointed us to her favorite style from the Summer 2016 Collection, the Oatmeal Herringbone Super 120’s Pure Wool Suit Separates. She tells us “This Super 120’s Wool Featherbone Suit is so wearable for the season. It’s a great light color that matches back to multiple dress shirt and tie color combinations. These pieces pair perfectly together as a suit but can be worn separately as a sport coat or pant with a casual shirt.” With striking looks and an impeccable construction to match, this suit – together or as separates – will be in heavy rotation in your closet.
Finally, we asked our Sportswear Buyer, Bethany, to choose her favorite style from this season’s collection. She picked the Non-Iron 100% Cotton Buffalo Plaid Button Down Collar Sport Shirt; she explains: “I love the warm summer colors and the bold pattern of this shirt. An added bonus is that it is non-iron so it’s super easy to care for. Don’t forget to pack it on your next vacation!” Cheerful seasonal tones liven up the laid back appeal of this sport shirt, and the result is a buttondown that gets attention for all the right reasons.
Now it’s your turn: which style from the Summer 2016 Collection is your “Best in Show”?
