Last post I talked about my favorite superhero. This week I want to talk about my favorite season. As a July baby, there is no doubt my favorite season is summer. From the long summer days, the warm temperatures and the outdoor events I love everything about summer.
As we continue through the summer I am inspired by the warm days and bright colors all around. This week I am dressing for the summer and experimenting with some colors. As a man adding white slacks to your wardrobe adds an element of flare. What ever the event when you walk in, trust me you will be noticed. Then, adding a light colored blazer with simple accessories will seal the deal.
From top to bottom I am wearing a light blue Tommy Hilfiger Blazer, yellow and white checkered Tommy Hilfiger shirt, white Nautica slacks and cognac brown Johnston and Murphy loafers. The accessories include a blue Michael Kors tie, cognac brown Johnston and Murphy belt, white pocket square and yellow flower lapel pin.
Ask either one of my sons who my favorite superhero is and with little hesitation they will answer "Captain America." I have always liked how he represents all that is good in United States, and I see him as a representation of me. Now I am not naive, I do know the United States has a checkered past and even today not everything is on solid ground. With that being said, what country do you know has everything together and everyone is always happy. Overall, I still think this is the greatest country in the world and I love living here.
This week I am saluting one of my favorite holidays, Independence Day which is celebrated on the 4th of July. This weekend all around this great nation, people will be getting together to celebrate being Americans. Grills will be cooking, fireworks will be flying, and of course I will be in a suit. For this week's look I am utilizing the colors red, white, and blue.
When it comes to the fabric in the middle of the summer I recommend cotton or linen. The look I am wearing here is all cotton. The blazer is cotton and made by Tommy Hilfiger, the pants are blue cotton and made by Banana Republic, the shirt is slim fit by Tommy Hilfiger and the shoes are by Johnston and Murphy. For me the accessories are light, pocket square by j. crew, tie by Tommy Hilfiger, and american flag lapel pin and glasses.
