Men's Fashion: Curated Looks for Spring/Summer 2015, part IV

The Polo Player

Shirt: Patagonia Men's Sender Rugby Shirt
Pants: Vineyard Vines Breaker Pant (in-store only)
Shoes: Tom's Broque in Brown Chambray (in-store only)
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban Wayfarer
Belt: Bill Adler
Watch: Luminox "Navy Seal" Steel Chronograph 
Accessories: Rowdy Gentleman Sunglass Straps (in-store only)

    Summer sports are more than just ultimate frisbee. Even if you've never set foot on a proper outdoor grounds, this outfit will still project a little part "pomp" and every part "circumstance". A Patagonia cotton pique shirt in properly large contrast stripes showcases your athletic build - all the benefits of a tank top, just done more maturely. "No shorts allowed" dress code? Good thing you brought along Vineyard Vines' prep staple chino pants. Add in some wardrode essentials like the eponymous Ray Ban Wayfarer and a hulking steel Luminox watch to complete the ensemble, then sit back and enjoy the match. When you look this good, who'd rather not be the Polo Player?

The Second Date

Shirt: Lacoste Lightweight Poplin Shirt in Blue Check
Sweater: Vineyard Vines 1/4 Zip in Grey (in-store only)
Pants: AG Protege 
Shoes: Clark's Desert Boots in Beeswax Leather
Sunglasses: Ray Ban Wayfarer
Belt: Bison Belt in Rough-Out Leather
Watch: Timex Weekender

    Last time was all about open-ended questions and generous tipping; now, you get to show her who you really are. Let that same confidence out in a put-together look that doesn't scream "I'm trying really hard to impress you", but impresses anyway. A Lacoste button up in understated blue contrast check sets the tone with an easy pattern that's sure to please. Throw on some AG Protege denim in a deep, non-distressed rigid indigo to really dress up your denim, then, add a simple casual watch like Timex's iconic Weekender. Expecting a late night out? Pack a Vineyard Vines 1/4 Zip sweater just in case the cool summer evening gets the best of you. Finally: the shoes. Clark's Desert Boot in Beeswax passes any up-down with flying colors. Forget the canned laughter and uncomfortable tie - it's time for the Second Date.

The Cutting Edge

Jacket: Arc'teryx A2B Commuter Hardshell
Shirt: Icebreaker Merino Tech T in Lunar
Pants: Fjallraven Keb Trousers
Shoes: Teva Terra Fi Lite in Black
Hat: The North Face Horizon Hat in Olive
Bag: Arc'teryx Cordova Backpack

    The best we have to offer. Style and expression made supremely functional. The Cutting Edge is light-years ahead. Tricot Gore-Tex, taped seams, reflective cuffs, merino baselayers, articulated pants, waterproof highly-organized packs. And it all looks good. Prepare for any scenario (and look fresh doing it) with Arc'teryx's 24 line, featuring stand-out pieces like the A2B Commuter Hardshell Jacket and the Cordova backpack. Fjallraven Keb trousers adjust, move, and breathe as you do with stretchable paneling around your joints, leg zips to dump excess body heat, and adjustable snap cuffs. Convertible pants? Neon green nylon rain shells? Not even close. The Cutting Edge is technology, wearable.
