Tommy Hilfiger Modern Trench
This lightweight trench from Tommy Hilfiger is no stuffed coat: it’s got a trim, modern fit—no stiff lining—and a protective layer made from a paperthin yet durable waterproof nylon. But what truly sets it apart from your classic trench: It’s formalwear cut at a shorter, more casual length.
Bonobos Daily Grind Shirt
A spread collar like this one, from Bonobos, used to be shorthand for “corporate raider.” Today, it’s a hip sartorial touch. Pair it with a beefierthan-skinny tie with a subtle pattern, like this micro-polka-dot number from Nordstrom Men’s Shop.
Tommy Hilfiger Tote
Need a sturdy, more dude-friendly bag? Try this navy beast from Tommy Hilfiger, which even has a zipper closure to protect your important gear from the elements.
Nautica NST 10 Watch
This Nautica NST 10, water resistant to 100 meters, is also dressy enough for any occasion.
Express Slim Photographer Stretch Cotton Dress Pant
The easiest way to freshen up aspring look is with crisp, white pants, like these from Express. But hem them slightly shorter than usual—the only thing worse than fabric puddles around your ankles is white fabric puddles around your ankles.
Johnson & Murphy – Cardell Penny Loafers
If you go with white pants, be sure to ground them with black loafers (because white pants + white shoes = male nurse). These slip-ons from
Johnston & Murphy are also very flexible, which lend them perfectly to the no-sock look.
Nautica Modern Peacoat
This Nautica jacket merges the light-shell technology of a modern trench with the trendy style of a peacoat. Constructed from a strong, water-repellent nylon and equipped with a back vent for ventilation, it’s also ideal for warm, muggy weather.
Buffalo David Bitton Narwayne Shirt
It’s fine to throw on your favorite tee or polo on weekends. But when you want something dressier than your favorite Metallica shirt and less staid than your golf shirt, try this prewashed cotton Henley from Buffalo David Bitton.
K-Swiss Washburn Sneakers
Polish up your casual look with clean white sneakers, like these Washburns from K-Swiss (above), or this leather Armani Exchange pair, which are actually supercomfortable slip-ons with faux laces (aka the perfect shoe for any warm-weather travel).
