SlamXStyle: Because All-Black-Everything Doesn’t Have To End After Memorial Day…
Fiet Hand Sewn Low Black // Start with some hand-made suede shoes from Australia. They’re light, airy and comfortable but have a dressier, transitional look to keep you ready for whatever summer action you get into.
V Ave Shoe Repair Black Gabardine Deck Shorts // Shorts are the most dressed down pant option, but the tight weave of gabardine fabric makes these particular shorts a more elegant option than the normal chinos they sell at J. Crew and Club Monaco.
Stampd Black Blank Double Layered Tank // Summer is a sweaty season. Keep yourself dry with an extra-long under-layer from Stampd. If the day gets super hot, or you find yourself on the beach or at the pool, it’ll also serve as your casual, relaxed top.
A.P.C. Poplin Printed Shirt in Black // Again, keep yourself ready for any day or night action with a collared shirt layered over your Stampd tank. This A.P.C. option will add a little all-over-print detailing to your outfit.
Acne Black Slim Leather Belt // Compliment the slim silhouette of your shorts with a slim belt featuring minimal detailing.
Vitaly Sua Ring and Chain in Matte Black // Canadian jewelers Vitaly offer a whole range of one and two-finger rings, necklaces and bracelets. Their gear is now offered at NYC’s Atrium. Check them (and their matte black ring necklace) out.
With the arrival of Memorial Day and the unofficial start of summer, men get the green-light to go with white pants, light-weight fabrics and splashy, hot-season colors … but all-black-everything doesn’t have to end with the holiday’s arrival. So, to help you pull off black, even as the temperature rises, we’ve put together a SlamXStyle outfit to summarize your monochrome game.
Remember, the key to all summer dress (regardless of color) is to wear transitional clothes: stuff that will keep you ready for wherever your adventures take you without having to change. Whether it’s the beach, the pool, the yacht club, the skatepark or the rooftop bar, we’ve got you covered.
