Grey Skies Are Gonna Clear Up


So… planning anything this spring or summer? Derby Day is  coming up. Mother’s Day, too. That calls for brunch, at least. How about: outdoor weddings? Picnics? Food and wine festivals? The Strawberry Hill races? Gold Cup?

Planning to wear your grey business suit? Why? Lighten up and have some fun, while still looking sophisticated. Leviner Wood has a huge palette of colorful, comfortable options in fabrics right now.

Dressing Up to Dress Down


It’s not an oxymoron. Rather, it is more a state-of-mind. That same state-of-mind that has you wearing custom clothing to begin with.

So, consider a pair of linen blend trousers this summer. Sure they wrinkle, so do cotton. But they’ll keep you cooler and look better with a few wrinkles anyway. Wear them flat-fronted, or trim-cut and pleated.

Try a sportcoat in a linen and silk blend. With minimal lining and patch pockets, it is guaranteed to beat the heat. Those great colors are nothing to shy away from. Stronger sunlight calls for a more vibrant color to stand up to it.

For the truly inspired, a linen suit (younger guys wear this with a v-neck t and sandals). I’m particularly fond of the navy windowpane on the right panel, above. And it looks equally good with an open collar shirt or a golf shirt under it.
