Business Casual Men’s Summer Clothes: Top Level
You’ve arrived, you captain of industry. It’s time to dress to command respect from the entire organization, not to mention the rest of the world. Dress like you mean it, but dress like you know you can head out early any day of the week for that corporate golf retreat, weekend on the Vineyard or private spa getaway. These pieces are cool and casual, but never lose sight of the goal.
Go for a gorgeous, Italian style with a deconstructed saturated navy sport coat in a perfect summer fabric blend of wool and cotton. It should be lightweight, so it can move from meeting to meeting without breaking a sweat.
