Everyone has a favorite spring ritual. The DIYers set up camp at Home Depot, the baseball fans blow the dust off their gloves, and the style-conscious joyfully relegate winter’s bulky overcoats and insulated accessories to the back of the closet and feast on our eyes once again on breezy fabrics and bright, cheery colors.

If you’ve found that retiring the corduroy and faux wool has left the suit section of your closet looking as bare as your liquor cabinet did after New Year’s Eve, it’s time to invest in a fresh head-to-toe look that will carry you all the way through Halloween.

Style mavens agree that the essential suiting for spring and summer is all about lightweight fabrics and a slim, well-tailored fit. Here are three of our favorites:

Kenneth Cole Reaction Suit

Kenneth Cole Reaction

Every man needs a solid black suit, and this style, by Kenneth Cole Reaction, cuts a sharp silhouette in a fine blend of breathable rayon and polyester.


Perry Ellis Gray Suit

Perry Ellis

For all those outdoor summer weddings, opt for a light gray in warm-weather fabric, like this version by Perry Ellis, paired with bright or pastel button-downs and ties.



Brave GentleMan

And to really flesh out your sunny-day suit selections, peruse Brave GentleMan’s custom-made styles in a variety of colors, correctly described as “evolved,” “principled,” and “ethically handsome.”  

Kind of like what I look for in men.
