Men's Fashion: Curated Looks for Spring/Summer 2015, pt. II

The Deckhand
Pants: AG Lux Khaki
Belt: Vineyard Vines Club Belt (in store only)
Watch: Luminox Sea Anu 4221.CW “Navy Seal” (in store only)

The Deckhand combines fashion with function to thwart even the worst sea sprays – and look good doing it. A Fjallraven anorak cuts wind and rain alike with a durable blend of polyamide and organic cotton. A Luminox “Authorized for Navy Use” series watch (waterproof to 20 AMU, or ~680ft of water) mounted on a secure nylon band resists the elements much more ably than its steel or leather-strapped cousins. The cotton shirt and chino pants? Ok, they’re not water-resistant - but if they worked for JFK, they’re good enough for any afternoon on the waves. A muted color palette on top of simple lines, technical details, and classic pieces make The Deckhand look first class.

The Beach Bum
Sandals: Chaco Men's Fontas 
Sunglasses: Maui Jim Kahuna
Watch: Timex Weekender (in store only)

The Beach Bum works to live, not lives to work. His laidback, care-free lifestyle dominates this look without trying to: a Reef short-sleeve button-up in a funky print effortlessly slubs over a J. Williams crew neck tee. Patagonia’s quick-drying board shorts mean you can hit the waves early, tan all day, and still look good at the cantina later all in the same pair. And that tried-and-true pair of Chaco sandals? Slip on, slip off, all in a comfortable rough out leather. Throw on some Maui Jim sunglasses and a simple Timex Weekender to pull it all together, and get ready to look your best all day without even trying.   

The Academic
Jacket: Marc New York Field Jacket (in store only)
Shirt: Vineyard Vines Seascape Gingham Tucker Shirt (in store only)

A perfectly-pressed shirt, tucked into premium indigo jeans on top of suede boots the quintessential shade of brown to complement a vintage field jacket: the Academic presents well, in more ways than one. The Academic has an impression to make, but without the traditional navy sport coat to restrict his clothing choices. Instead, Marc New York’s modern take on the timeless M65 military jacket allows smart casual staples like Citizens of Humanity jeans to add interesting texture to this outfit, while also keeping this look fresh and multi-seasonal. School may be out in early spring, but the Academic is never out of class.   


This is Part II of our "Men's Curated Looks" collection for Spring/Summer 2015.
