What The Stylishly Smart Men Wear To Work When It’s Sweltering Out
Men’s Summer Fashion
If you’re like me, you’ve forgotten to check the weather a few too many times before getting dressed. Sandals in a thunderstorm? Done it. Short sleeves in negative degree weather? That was a fun walk. But summer is the hardest season for me across the board. Step outside and the heat is SWELTERING– and then you go to your office and someone has the AC cranked up to Arctic levels. Dressing for such different temperatures can be a challenge, so here are a few of my tips to help you stay comfy throughout the day.
1) Avoid sweat in awkward places
You know what I’m talking about. It gets HOT where the sun don’t shine, and then the rush of cold air in the office can make anyone’s family jewels an uncomfortably wet area. Try some men’s underwear from Tommy John to combat discomfort. The unique design features smart-stretch fabric that helps prevent moisture buildup. Thank me later.
2) If your feet are comfortable, so are you
Feet that are too hot can make your whole body feel out of whack. No one wants to walk around in the summer heat with knee-high socks and black loafers. So find a breathable style, like Boat Shoes from Sperry’s. The laid-back style keeps your feet cool, while maintaining a professional look.
3) Invest in a good undershirt
When you raise your hand in a meeting, it’s not to show of the pit stains you got on your walk to work. Find a wicking and cooling undershirt and impress your boss with your style and knowledge, not how well your sweat glands work.
4) Switch long sleeves for short ones
Instead of melting outside in your favorite button-down, pair a polo tee with a light-colored jacket for a casual but crisp look… (Or a Hawaiin Tee if you’re feeling bold.) This method gives you all-day flexibility just in case the AC vent breaks and turns your desk into the Sahara Desert.
5) Black is not the new Black
Wearing black pants won’t heat you up under fluorescent lighting, but it will make you sweat if you take your lunch outside. Go for a light tan pant leg, or be the boldest man in the office and show off your sailor style with some white breaker pants. You can do it!
Good briefs, good shoes, good shirt, and good pants! That, my friends, is a recipe for summer success.
