As long as he has a suit and tie! The Bonobos Way

Hello Friends,

Summer is here!! that means there will be plenty of BBQs, beach trips, weddings and formal events. Yes, you read that correct. Did you know? June is the most popular month for weddings, then August. But besides living in shorts and bathing suits, a lot of us will be shopping for formal looks.

I know the women will be buying summery light weight cocktail dresses in the hottest colors. But, what about our men? We can’t forget about them! Sure, you can have them walk out of the house with a predictable brown or black suit. Ask yourself this: What is the fun in that? When you dress to impress, don’t you also want your significant other to match? At least I do :). There is nothing sexier than a well dressed man.

I teamed up with a great company called Bonobos, which is a men’s apparel brand focused on better-fitting clothes and a better-shopping experience.

Below here is your first look of their men’s summer suits  collection

An all neutral suit will not only keep you cool, it will also complement any color dress your date is wearing.

Taking a traditional Navy blue colored suit and adding a punch of color is what it’s all about!

Don’t be afraid to mix colors and patterns, it’ll not only make a statement but I guarantee you will make the best dressed list 😉

Wondering on how you can put these looks together? or want some  styling tips for your significant other?

Your  just in luck because Dwight Fenton who is the  VP of design for Bonobos, is passing along his suit and styling tips!!

“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,” says Dwight Fenton, Bonobos VP of Design.

 

Fenton’s simple suit tips to find the right fit:

 

• Fit starts with the shoulders: The jacket should grab your shoulders snuggly but not be overly tight. If the shoulders fit, pretty much anything else can be adjusted.

 

• Length matters: To determine the appropriate length, you should be able to cup the bottom of the suit with your arms by your side.

 

• 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 great style tips! I hope to be seeing a lot of well dressed men at the next formal event this Summer. I just want to say thank you to Bonobos for letting me showcase their beautiful men’s summer suits  collection. Make sure to check them out!
