Menswear Monday | Bonobos Summer Suits*

Now, I believe my readership is mainly feminine, but I thought I’d do something a little different today and create a post of summer fashion advice for you few boys out there who peruse this blog from time to time. And ladies, don’t stop reading, there’s a good few photos of some rather good looking gentleman coming up!

When Jason from Bonobos e-mailed me about their new Summer Suits collection, I thought it would make the perfect post for you style conscious guys out there. All the suits are super suave and here’s just a few examples…

Finally, here’s a few nuggets of advice on men’s fashion from Bonobo’s VP of Design, Dwight Fenton…

1“Fit is the most important detail for a suit. Marry that with classic color options and quality fabric, and you have a great looking, versatile suit for every occasion.”

2. “Fit starts with the shoulders – the jacket should grab your shoulders snuggly but not be overly tight. If the shoulders fit, pretty much everything else can be adjusted.”

3. “Length matters – to determine the appropriate length, you should be able to cup the bottom of the suit with your arms by your side.”

4. “Show some shirt – a flexible but general rule of thumb is to have a quarter-inch of your shirt cuff showing. If you’re wearing a heavier cuff, like a French cuff, you may want to show a little more.”

What are your top tips for men’s fashion this summer? Let me know in the comments below! 

Until next time,
