This weekend is Memorial day which means the season of wearing white is back! But don’t get too wild, this doesn’t mean turning into a snowflake. In this outfitter we will be selecting interesting outfit pieces where white is the main color pop, and the other elements help accentuate it. The this outfitter is set up is a bit different than the previous ones in this series. This time we will offer two white garments in each section and a non white piece that goes with the other sections. For instance, you will find two white tops that go with a non-white pant selection, and vice versa.


The Top

Guidance: The key point here is texture. Adding texture to your outfits with a bold color like white gives it some more character than just being bright.

Ted Baker Derry Slim Fit Polo: A classic white polo with some detailed black stitching- perfect for popping the color without going too basic. Heads up- these run small. $99*

Levi’s White Out Trucker Jacket: Fortune favors the bold, and this is pretty damn bold. Great for summer nights and making an impact. $89*

Scotch and Soda Pique Polo: It’s green, it’s floral, and it’s textured. Perfect for going with some killer white pants and pulling off a classy look in the warmer months. $65*


The Bottom

Guidance: Lets go retro with some modern cuts.

Good Man Brand Slim Chinos: A new charitable brand from Russel Wilson and some friends- made in Italy, built to move. Heads up: these only come in 34” inseam so tailoring or rolls will be needed. $198*

Bonobos Stretch Chino Shorts: The ultimate “Someone get me a frozen drink, I’m on vacation!” short. If you are 5’8” or under, go 7”, otherwise 9” is fine. $68*

Rag and Bone Fit 1 in Black: Pretty skinny but the perfect counter balance to so much white. $195*


The Feet

Guidance: If a white jean jacket or all white pants are too much, there’s nothing wrong with adding some white to the feet. It’s a staple modern-casual look that won’t ever go out of style.

GREATS Royale Blanco: You’ve likely heard of common projects, these are very similar but a third of the price. $179*

Beckett Simonon Reid Low Top Sneakers: If minimalism is the game, these guys won. The simplest leather sneaker we’ve ever seen, and we like it. $150*

Converse High Top Rose Embroidery: Something a little different that will go with the white pants and the white shirts we picked without adding too much extra white and tie the whole ensemble together. $75*
