Summer Kit Nº1 – All Blue Uniform

This first summer kit of the season is based around items that make up my summer uniform which are a mixtures of fabrics, textures and shades of blue. There are a few basic casual necessities for Summer starting with a cotton or chambray blazer. Apolis makes a great fitting Service Blazer and it's available in either navy or chambray, perfect for day-to-day. Another important item is a crisp new oxford, in this case blue, from Gitman Vintage with their great fit and superb details like a box pleat for ease of movement. It's also important to have at least one solid pair of dark navy shorts in rotation and I love the cut and details of the Ghurka Shorts by Engineered Garments. For the optional item– a tie, this staple chambray version by The Hill-Side is great and works in tandem with the rest of the blues in this kit nicely. A classic sneaker silhouette is important, but you may choose to wear a loafer or dirty buck, also great options. If you do go with a sneaker, keep it basic, low cut and you're set.
