Seasons and Dress Shirts

Summer colors for man

Summer is a season when light and bold colors dominate the scene, and for good reason.

The hot weather makes not only light shades practical, but your choice of your fabric’s fiber will mean the difference between allowing your skin to breath or you sweltering like in a sauna.

13275198044_759e919d96_z100% cottons, linens, and silks are popular fabric choices because of their wicking qualities.

Gold striped shirts, red checks, and of course a wide variety of blue solids and patterns should grace the wardrobe of the well dressed man.

Fall men’s colors

Earth Tones and heavier fabrics begin to make their appearance.

Clothing tends to take on a somber appearance with the onset of cooler weather, and now with the weather getting cooling up, is a good time to start wearing blends again.

Their heat retention qualities are good on a cold evening you are caught without an overcoat.

Fancy checks and stripes with more color than white are excellent choices, and muted tones of blue on broadcloth or chambray are great selections.Man and Winter colors

Dark colors and heavy fabric such as flannels, twills, and oxfords make their appearance.

You can enliven your wardrobe a bit with a pink or maize dress shirt, or show off a burgundy check that’s been in your closet for a few months.

Forest green and brown tones are a stable during this season, although they tend to be perceived as more casual.
