European men know how to wear summer suits – they wear them hard and they wear them often. Follow their cue and buy a stripped-down suit that can travel from the corner office to the coast. In lightweight fabrics like cotton and linen, the new summer suit breathes well on a triple-digit day.
It’s also a perfect travel companion – with a multitude of pockets, the unlined or half-lined suit carries everything you need and can be rolled into a suitcase without a garment bag.
We’ve chosen five you can wear in a more casual way – to weddings, on dates, or while on the road. (Tie not required.) “Wear the suits on a day-to-day basis and they’ll get sun-kissed and a little bit faded,” says Gant Rugger head designer at Fifi Hallstensson. “That looks great.”
