Early Summer Men’s Outfit Inspiration Gallery
Over 150 photos to energize your spring to summer style.

For men across America, the first days of summer entail dragging the cargo shorts and baggy t-shirts out of the closet.

These garments have their place – yard work, amusement parks – but there are better alternatives for day-to-day wear. Flat-front chino and denim shorts are much more palatable, especially when kept above the knee. [Watch Primer's Visual Guide to Shorts, and read it here] Short-sleeve button-downs are an easy item to toss on, but short-sleeve hoodies are just as valid.

In these transitory weeks between spring and summer, the weather can change sporadically, requiring pants one day and tank-tops the next. Your wardrobe should be capable of handling these swings, so don't pack away everything quite yet. Hold onto a few of your favorite medium-temperature pieces, and pair them with your summer style staples.

A huge shout out and thank you to the well-dressed gents in the album for constantly inspiring us, if you're a featured content creator and would like your photo removed, shoot Andrew a note and we'll take care of it right away.

    Noticing lots of low-contrast outfits in here – pairing whites, light greys and light blues. Any guidelines on that? When does it work and when does it not?

    Lot’s of these looks can’t be comfortable at all in the summer. Most of america can be in 80s minimum – 100s. Wear performance fabric that feels like a gym that won’t feel heavy and sticky after being outside –
