Men’s summer whites

Calling them summer whites is something of a misnomer. Certainly white is an easier colour to wear through the warmer months, and as the mercury pushes further up the thermometer it’s also a colour that makes a lot of sense, but the idea that white clothes are solely the domain of summer is to limit its potential.

Take the following look as an example;

Despite having been snapped during the recent spring 2012 showings at Pitti Unomo, there’s nothing that needs to pigeonhole this look to the warmer months. Nor a warmer climate. The white pants (note the growing preference towards pleats), crisp blue blazer, the turned back cuffs and the statement watch all come together for a sharp look. A sharp look that’s transseasonal across much of Western Europe.

If whites aren’t suited to anything it’s when it rains. Having walked through a down poor in a white Tom Ford, pin-cord suit, I can attest to that fact first hand.

This look was snapped by Citizen Couture.

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of Fashionising.com’s co-founders.
