Channel your inner Bond without needing a secret agent's budget. Abercrombie & Fitch's trunks are your passport to sophistication by the shore this summer. Upgrade your old trunks, they'll have you looking sharp without costing a fortune.
100% Wool Tapered Flannel Dress Pant
Banana Republic, $45
One of the best deals you'll find on dress pants that are 100% wool. I found these at my local Banana Republic, and when I saw the sale price it was a no-brainer. With room to move and a tapered leg opening, they're equally suitable for the office or a smart casual event with sneakers.
Taylor Stitch, $12
Loomed from soft organic cotton, they're like a hug for your feet. Pair them with your Bostons, and suddenly a mundane morning routine becomes a cozy start to the day. It's a simple pleasure that makes a big difference, and at this price no more expensive than the rest of your socks.
