Hartford Spring/Summer 2014

I don’t know what it is, but the spring/summer season always leaves me wanting to remove all patterns from my wardrobe. I tend to wear almost exclusive solids, with the exception of some stripes in my warm weather kits. Maybe it’s the way the sun illuminates a solid fabric, the lack of layers, the way that the simplicity echoes the relaxed lifestyle, or the fact that I’m just delusional. Whatever it may be, I always gravitate toward solids when it comes to my spring/summer kits. The warmer the weather, the fewer the number of pieces I’m wearing at once, and I think that solids give the most striking visual effect in that manner.

I’m also a huge fan of linen, wearing it at basically any point I can. The French dudes over at Hartford apparently like linen too, and it has a huge presence in their current collection. I’ve been a fan of Hartford for a few years now, but their most recent collection fits perfectly with the way I like to wear my clothes in the warmer months, a beautiful collection of solids with a large number of linen appearances. 

These two pieces above, a garment dyed linen shirt and drawstring linen pants, are particular favorites. If you guys have followed this blog for a while, you also know that navy and olive is one of my favorite color combinations. I’d very much like to have both of these pieces in my wardrobe, but that kind of money isn’t in the cards right now. However, I did just snag a white pair of the above pants that was on 50% sale at Mr. Porter right now, so that was clutch. I’ve been very into the drawstring trousers lately, and I couldn’t pass these up. I’ll let you guys know how they are.

Faded and washed pants porn from Piatto.

These look incredible, and I am especially talking about those creased jawnz on the bottom left.

Perfect kit and maybe the best tailored cargos I have ever seen.

I just grabbed these trousers from Club Monaco over the weekend. They’re 100& cotton navy herringbone, and I got them for only sixty bucks. They need a bit of tailoring, but I have the feeling that these are going to become a workhorse in my wardrobe.

The idea of a lightweight denim trouser has always appealed to me. I think a bespoke pair would be one of the coolest items in your wardrobe. This pair is crafted by R & BLUES.

Check this out:

In honor of the leap year (day?), Land’s End Canvas is doing a promotion which leaves all of their shirts and pants at $29. If you’re on the college ramen budget, or just strapped for cash, this is definitely the place you want to hit today. Land’s End Canvas is obviously not the highest quality, but they make a solid product. I have a couple pairs of the chinos myself. I would recommend the Heritage Oxford Shirt and the Refined or Vintage Slim-Fit Chinos.

Female followers:

They are offering the same discounts for women’s apparel too.

I never knew how to handle teal clothing, but now I do. All I have to do is just get a boss pair of teal plaid pants from Canali.

These are some of the coolest moleskin trousers I’ve seen this season, in terms of color. They come from a company called pt01. The company is straight Italian (google mapped the address… no directions from NJ to Italy), so I have no idea where to acquire said jawnz.

Gold is a sock color that is not often tried, but with a pair of brown leather shoes and some navy trousers, people will be wondering why they’ve never worn them before.

For those of you looking for some next-level corduroy jawnz, Ramdane slim fit corduroys are your joint. You’ll find them behind this insane orange door on 64 Kenmare Street in Manhattan.

"10:30 a.m. En route from office to meeting. Guy on cell phone interrupts his call to say, “Nice pants.” Not a sarcastic “Nice pants,” either. A genuine compliment. Am I killing it? I might be killing it.” Check this out at Park & Bond.
