What I Wore Today: Summer Suave

June 26th, 2015

Rule #1 of Articles of Style: bring your “A Game” every day!

“Summer Suave”

Use the comments section below to tell us who’s style you’re appreciating today.



I’m going with three-pieces of suits today, in a healthy mixture of Summer-ready fabrics: straw, linen/silk, pure hemp, tropical wool hopsack, sockless suede loafers.


Marine Linen Suit

Alejandro Rodriguez


Nobody wears distressed menswear like downtown LA designer Alejandro Rodriguez. From the vintage hat, to the torn-up layering tee, to the beat-up denim, to the roughed-up cowboy boots. This is one version of West Coast style that we are really feeling lately.

Alex Crawford


Remember the bespoke jeans that I had made by Camillo Love? He also made this pair for our Art Director Alex, using an over-dyed indigo denim from Japan. In true Articles of Style fashion, Alex is keeping them casually tailored today.

Ernie Ulysse


Our friend Ernie also knows a thing or two about mixing and matching suit separates. Today it’s a double-breasted formal jacket in a tropical wool with a pair of linen-blend glenplaid trousers.

He’s a man of detail, as you can see by the perfectly folded pocket square and just the right amount of tie bar elevation.
