When it comes to dressing for the summer I play it on the safe side. I haven't been able to put down the cash for an expensive summer wardrobe, the uses are way too limited for me. However, the look can easily be attained by shoppng the sales. Here I am wearing a Nautica pincord 100% cotton sportcoat, JAB tab collar shirt, and a linen Brooks Brothers tie. All the items pictured were less than the average price of a really nice quality shirt. I say that is a deal. These items can easily be paired with linen trousers, khakis, jeans (though not my preference), or even a light cream flannel, and the shoes of you choice.
So, if you are in need of a sharp summer ensemble and you don't want to spend enormous amounts of money on limited use items, hit the sales!
