Foreground: Caine is wearing a Billy Reid cotton/linen blue and white stripe jacket ($495), pants ($195), and vintage pocket square ($25), all available at Billy Reid; Ralph Lauren Black Label shirt ($265/Ralph Lauren Highland Park Village); Henry Beguelin gray leather cuff ($185/Henry Beguelin); and Scrooples eyeglasses ($60/Pockets Menswear).
Sweltering temps don’t have to make dressing up unbearable. A summer suit is an essential element for every Southern gentleman’s wardrobe. Many designers offer lightweight options in silk, tropical wool, linen, poplin, and seersucker. We spotted a solid selection at Billy Reid, Brooks Brothers, Ken’s Man’s Shop, LFT, Pockets Menswear, and Ralph Lauren. This season, look for delicate tones, pastel accents, and mixed textures. Pocket squares take the look to the next level.
