When the hot weather arrives this summer, feel the relief by shrugging off those heavy sweaters and kicking your boots aside. Investing in a few summer staples will serve you well this season, so – whether you’re hopping between cities, beaches, or both – make sure the perfect polo shirt or boat shoe is in easy grasp.


  1. A Polo Shirt

The mighty polo shirt can do it all. Throw on the Kennebec River Saltscrub Polo as you’re headed out to the beach with sandals or slip ons or dress it up with denim or chinos and pair it with boat shoes for an evening dinner date. The salt-washed effect makes it a great laidback option and different from typical polos. Our tip? Invest in a few different colors so you’re set everyday from May through August.


  1. A Smart Blazer

A blazer is a must-have, especially on vacations when you might be going dressier than normal at night. Nothing says “dapper” like a well-cut blazer and our Mount Mansfield Rugged Blazer, is crafted out of lightweight cotton, linen and yarn, and available in rich colors. Slip it on to transform your look from beach to bar.


  1. A Classic Boat Shoe

Every man needs a pair of boat shoes for summer, which is why we’ve been designing (and refining) them for decades. Handmade in the Dominican Republic, our classic 2-Eye Boat Shoe is made for hot days (whether you’re near a boat or not), to be worn with no-show socks for an easy-going vibe that goes as well with board shorts as dark denim. Crafted from premium leather, they’re made to be lived in.


  1. A Simple Button Down

Stay cool and throw on the Warner River Linen Shirt and wear with our Canobie Lake Denim Short for an unexpected, casual combo for daytime style. The checked pattern is smart but casual. If it’s a chilly evening, swap out the shorts for a pair of rolled-up chinos and you’re ready to roll.


  1. Denim Shorts

Faded denim shorts come in handy during the summer months when you can throw them on for everything from picnics, outdoor cinemas and beach walks. The Canobie Lake Denim Short comes in three different washes, so get them dark or faded. Head to the coast or the city with a T-shirt and colorful top – like our Allendale River Saltscrub Poplin Shirt (pictured in burnt orange).
