    Awesome look. Sharp but summerish. Belt really puts all together. Shame, they don’t have small belt sizes at all. But I really like the idea of classy leather front and fabric horizontal stripes.
    By the way, your shirt differs from H&M options. Where is it from?

      Hey Nikita, If you have an H&M store nearby check them out, that’s where the belt and shirt came from. The shirt seems to be in store only, which is frustrating with more affordable retailers. So glad you like it!

    That is my basic look for summer but I don’t tuck the shirt in. I’ve got a bit of a belly (which I am working on) so it doesn’t seem to look as good on me.

    My favorite summer getup yet! Nice job Andrew.

    Are aviators ok to wear? I have been seeing a lot of the types of glasses you posted but I am still an aviator fan at heart. Just curious

      Definitely, always a classic look!

    Hi Andrew, thats a great look! How do you feel about shorts on short guys? I am 5’7″ and often feel like shorts make me look shorter.

      Hey Baron, Absolutely! There aren’t many things that any man regardless of size and shape can’t pull off as long as the fit is right. You’ll want to find shorts that have a short inseam so you can get the same trim silhouette as above. If you can’t find any that fit off the rack you could have them tailored for pretty cheap.

    What’s the fit like on the driving mocs? Looks like I have to buy them online and I’m hoping not to go through the pain of buying two sizes and sending one back.

    One word: Uniqlo. For the socks I pay 3 quid a pop in the UK; considerably cheaper than 18 USD.
