The Top

Taylor Stitch Hawthorne Short Sleeve button Down: Taylor Stitch is known for their quality and rugged-inspired clothing line. This Hawthorne SSBD is their first camp collar, a relaxed collar meant to lay a little flatter and wider than most, giving off a bit more of a casual look, perfect for nights out at a beach bar, or patio setting. $125*

Scotch and Soda Standing Collar Button Down: For those who want to be different, a standing collar is one way to do that. Having less material around the neck helps keep you cool, and the slub nature of the fabric gives the shirt texture while also letting it breathe nicely. However, with it being 17% polyester, it will be warmer than some other long sleeve button downs, so save this for a breezy summer night $45*

Jach's NY Short Sleeve Stretch Cotton-Linen Shirt: For the hotter nights out, this short sleeve button down has a combo of cotton, linen, and elastane meaning it's light, will breathe really nicely, and retain it's shape as you are out and about. So if you are trying to stay cool with your cold drink, this is the one for you. $75*

The Bottom

Topman Slate Blue Skinny Stretch Chinos: A plain-front, simple, and slimmer style chino make these pants perfect for nights out whether you are inside or outdoors. The skinny cut slims up your look, while the stretch makes them comfortable to wear all night. $50*

The Tie Bar Wool Chinos: Wool in the summer? Wool actually breathes really well, especially when it's not canvased like a jacket. These chinos are 97% wool and 3% elastane meaning these are really stretchy, light weight pants. These will be for your more formal nights out, think a date to a speak-easy, or  networking event. $75*

Everlane Mid Weight Slim Chinos: Even though these claim to be mid weight, they are pretty thin, meaning they are perfect for late Spring/Summer/early Fall. The olive color allows you to wear them with pretty much anything, and they will differentiate you from most other guys at the local bar. $68*

The Feet

Common Projects Achilles Original Sneaker: These are by far the most expensive sneakers we've ever listed, but for good reason. Common projects cut their teeth on leather fashion sneakers, and no one does it better. They are understated, and will definitely catch the eye of those in the know while you're out. However, don't wear these to the club unless you have a table, because you want these to stay clean. $410*

Wolf and Shepard Gunner Drivers: Drivers made of suede? Yes, water resistant suede. Wolf and Shepard make some seriously comfy shoes, and these are no exception. These are great alternatives to your boat shoes, and canvas slip-ons that up your style game by a factor of 5. $195*

Johnston and Murphy Warner Cap Toe Chukkas: We may seem chukka happy in these sections, but thats because they are a perfect part-casual, part-formal shoe that works all year round. They give your outfits an element of elevated style that doesn't try too hard, and isn't flashy, perfect for a night out. $169*


MVMT The 40 in Rose Gold: A simple classic wrist watch is all you need when going out at night. The large faces, and over-size time pieces tend to look cheap and make you seem like you're trying too hard. Go with something more timeless, and mature. Show your sophistication and dedication to keeping things simple with this guy.  $120*

Johnston and Murphy Distressed Belt: If you are looking for a belt that matches your shoes, try to look at the same manufacturer. You are far more likely to find a leather that has similar color tones because they are typically tanned and stained with similar methods and colors. This one will match the J&M Warners perfectly, but will also go with most brown shoes.  $46*

Urban Outfitters Golden Anchor Pendant Necklace: It is likely that with the higher summer night temps, you wont be buttoning your short sleeve button down all the way up. If this is the case, which it likely is, give the people something to notice. This gold anchor necklace is a great option. The anchor gives off a feel of the ocean, the beach, water, and nautical adventure, all of which are super enticing. Allow those feelings to be associated with you, by wearing the pendant, and going out and being the captain of everyone's good time.  $25
