Drawn to the luxury of linen, the breezy mood evoked through
light cottons and a pale colour palette, the seductive, summer
masculinity afforded by effortlessly cool threads and fibres,
slightly crumpled, supremely comfortable and worn with an easy
nonchalance…we're inspired by a decidedly casual,
lightweight approach to mens summer style.
Whilst dreamy and sun kissed, blessed with balmy evenings and attitudes of carefree, twilight revelry, weddings held in the height of Summer (or unseasonably warm Springs), pose a tricky sartorial question for groomsmen…what to reasonably wear in the baking heat of a 3pm ceremony? Attracted to the cool temperatures and timelessly chic appeal of classic linen, as well as lightweight silk and cotton blends for suits and shirting, consider embracing the easy elegance of a more casual, lightweight dress-code for weddings held in the height of warmer months or equatorial destinations.
Perfect for beach ceremonies, or any relaxed setting under a hot sun, look to fabrics with a washed or gently worn feeling, like breezy cotton lawns or lightweight linens evocative of Summer holiday elegance and effortless, European style coastal sojourns. Keep cool head-to-toe by opting for lightweight shirts worn with open collars, lightweight chino trousers, linen socks (or loafers, no socks), unlined shoes and a lightly constructed, single breasted jacket (Neapolitan Style, with minimal padding and only partially lined).
