Sneakers have evolved into somewhat of a uniform. No longer restricted to sports and weekends, a new breed of higher end, more dress appropriate sneakers have emerged, spurred by designers’ current love affair with everything athletic.
Suits, also a menswear staple more associated with formality, have also changed, with less construction and softer fabrics. The evolution of these menswear archetypes has produced an unexpected but pleasing result: they now work perfectly when worn together.

Everything from solid white leather to grey suede to leather slip-ons make perfect partners for spring tailoring in tropical wools and linens. The result is a pairing that balances the concepts of dressing up as well as dressing down, allowing men comfortable yet cool summer options.
