The Blues of Summer

Blues of Summer

We’re used to choosing our blue blazers and suits by button stance. Three button? Two? Double-breasted? We might add a peak lapel or a ticket pocket. But consider the most basic part of the blue blazer. The color.

Above we have a Royal blue (or blogger blue because of its popularity among the “e-gents” of the web), a mid-navy blue, and, at the bottom, a true navy, which you already own.

When is it appropriate to wear a lighter blue? During the day. Especially with the stronger sunlight. Pair a lighter blue with khakis or silver-grey trousers. They work equally well without or without a tie, making them perfect for Sunday brunches or at the club on weekends. We recommend a half-,or quarter-lining for the hot days ahead.

Now on to the really pressing question. Gold buttons? White? Blue marbled….?

    Some great guides to the color blue here! People often don’t think about how many different varieties of that one color there are, or what works when or where. I’ve always been a fan of the classic navy, myself.
