mens summer haircuts on preston konradThe arrival of steamy August days always gets us a bit jammed up. The temps are hotter than they have been all Summer, yet in the fashion world (and in most of the stores), Fall is already here. We’re not jumping the gun and opting for anything too heavy, but it is time to slowly start thinking about retiring certain pieces of the wardrobe until next Summer. The palm print shirt is one of those pieces. We would say you have a good two weeks left to crank out the playful palm print looks and then it’s time to swap them out for micro prints and cooler tones (while staying weather appropriate). If you’re going to give your palms and florals a few more runs, opt for a distressed jean and classic skate slip-on to keep the look more West coast and less Robin Williams circa ‘The Birdcage’.

(As it’s really time to start winding down the wacky prints, this shirt has gone on sale and is no longer available…similar and final remaining affordable ones below!)

Killer Summer weekday style means getting the most mileage out of your wardrobe staples. Since we’re not layering with sweaters, shirting, blazers, festive socks, boots, etc…it’s important to make the pieces you ARE wearing, count. Make sure your white shirts are crisp, your ties are colorful, your pants are slim (yet slightly stretchy), and your shoes are conversation worthy. A simple croc or faux-croc belt will make elevate your look and be sure to wear your most classic watch on the regular.

Short Sleeve Shirts You Need (without palm trees...

Preston Konrad in short sleeve shirtsAs the steamy days of July roll on, we’re getting less and less enthusiastic about our Summer wardrobe. Maybe if we were lucky enough to head to the beach every weekend we may feel a bit more excited about whacky tropical prints and palm tree patterns. As we dream of cooler temps (even 80 degrees will do) for now, we’re keeping things a bit more muted with short sleeve shirts in dark hues, small poppy prints, and classic patterns. We’ve rounded some of them up for you, after the jump:

Beating the summer heat while looking like a boss isn’t always the easiest of feats…especially when dressing up for that big Monday meeting. We opt for linen blazers and lightweight chinos (a favorite of the Italian set) to keep things cool, comfortable and classic.

Warmer weather usually brings out some crazy looks on the sidewalks of NYC. We like to keep things classic by pairing chino blazers with denim on denim on denim.

Beating the heat during an NYC summer while looking put together is no easy task. Avoid the sweat marks and keep your casual look tonal by opting for short sleeve button downs, canvas sneakers and your favorite pair of distressed jeans. We love an easy canvas tote bag for weekend errands, flea market exploring, and just to hold all of our shit.

Memorial Day Weekend is coming up and you know what that means — it’s officially summer! After months of enduring freezing temperatures and down jackets, we finally get to shed some layers and expose a little skin. And if you’re like us, you’re not wasting any time to get away from the city and head to the beach for a little R&R.

Because it’s been awhile since you’ve have the sand between your toes and the sun beating down on your face, we figured you could use a little help packing for the long weekend full of beaches, booze and babes. From a fun printed suit to a sturdy weekender, we tracked down the essentials you will need to keep you looking slick and sunburn free.
