Introducing Sartorial Style
What is Sartorial Style?
Sartorial Style is a term used to describe a lifestyle that revolves around a love of classic, timeless garments made with the highest level of craftsmanship.
In other words, it's all about looking your best in tailored clothing that is built to last.
Now that we've got that out of the way, let's take a look at some key items for summer.
How to Dress for Summer in Sartorial Style
The first thing we have to do is understand how to incorporate such a complicated piece of fashion into our summer dress. The first thing you'll want to do is look for lighter fabrics such as linen and cotton.
Both of these work great in summer - and are much preferred to heavier fabrics such as wool.
This is true for every piece of clothing that is included in the basic classic menswear wardrobe.
This will include a few things, but mainly:
- A well-tailored, light-fabric blazer such as Linen
- A pair of dress pants to go with the blazer
- A white cotton or linen dress shirt
- No tie is needed, especially during the summer - A pair of breathable dress, slip-on dress shoes will complete this look
- You can get a set of accessories that go with your formal summer look, for example:
The final thing we would like to mention is, of course, shorts. No list of summer clothes would be complete without talking about everyone's favorite leg coolers. If you're looking for a much more casual outfit and you're not planning on going for dinner, then a pair of shorts is absolutely fine.
Although counterintuitive to the cause of classic menswear, shorts have slowly started to make their way into even the deepest and darkest realms of sartorial fashion.
To the extent that companies such as Kiton now also make shorts:
What to Wear for Different Occasions in Sartorial Style
If you are dressing to impress, then follow the steps above to get a complete sartorial fashion look that is perfect for summer.
If you're going to something a bit more casual, however, you might not want to wear a suit - but still, look your best.
You should definitely pick yourself up a pair of luxury designer Italian jeans - which you can wear with basically any outfit. You can also replace the dress shoes with a pair of breathable luxury designer shoes, such as these ones from Kiton, with a backpack:
Another great idea, if you prefer, would be a pair of sweatsuit bottoms from Kiton, these ones, in particular, are of fantastic quality - and are made of 100% Cotton, making them a perfect addition to any summer wardrobe created from Italian designer brands.
How to Dress for Summer Business Casual
If you have a semi-formal event to attend, often the most difficult thing to do is to choose an outfit specifically for "summer business casual" - However, with sartorial style it's much easier.
All you're going to need is one of the following:
- A full suit, a white dress shirt, and a pair of dress shoes.
- A suit jacket, a pair of jeans, and a pair of dress shoes.
That's it - it's that simple. You can easily pull off either of these outfits, and look both stylish and formal.
If you want, you can also get away with a polo shirt, as long as the rest of your outfit is top-notch. A lot of men find polo shirts slightly more comfortable, and we know that you'll absolutely love these exclusive Kired Polo shirts made from 100% Crepe Cotton:
What to Wear for a Summer Wedding
If you've been invited to a summer wedding, then you'll want to make sure that you're dressed to the nines - and with sartorial style, this is easily achievable.
The most important thing to remember is that it's a summer wedding - which means that you should be looking for lighter fabrics such as linen and cotton.
With that in mind, here are a few key items that you'll need:
- A well-tailored suit - again, look for something made with linen or cotton, for colors a good one is charcoal or light gray, cream, and anything else with lighter tones, or even darker tones such as navy are fine. The important thing is the fabric.
- A white dress shirt, preferably made from cotton or linen.
- A pair of dress shoes
- An optional tie (you should really wear a tie, but if you wear a fantastic suit, it's not necessarily needed)
And that's it! You're now armed with all the things you need for a summer wedding.
Here is a great example of a Sartorio Napoli suit that will work perfectly for summer:
What to Wear for a Summer Funeral as a Man
Unfortunately, when it comes to a funeral, you are limited in color choices. Now is not the time to wear your favorite light blue blazer. Instead, you're really restricted to only two colors, navy or black.
It is recommended that you go with black, but if your suit is very dark, then you are also going to be fine with navy. Just follow the same rules as before, and don't wear any pieces such as a bright orange belt, or a colorful patterned pocket square.
Again, go for comfortable, light fabrics, and a pair of nice dress shoes to complete the look off.
