No matter who you are, chances are you've got some gear in your game that could use an update. While we don't advise retooling everything at once, trading up a few staples at a time is the ticket to solid style. Each week we'll pull a dud from the dark depths of every man's collection and suggest a simple substitute. Check your nostalgia at the door -- it's time for your tune up.
Deep into the heart of summer and a few weeks removed from Wimbledon, I figured it was high time to address summer's most suitable shade -- white. Weather you're on the beach, the boat or the back nine, there are a ton of great white options to take you through the summer in style.
The rules? They're aren't many -- depending on what your wearing white will go with pretty much anything. (Just watch out for red wine and red lips and you should be in the clear.)
Check out some of our summer staples and re-charge your whites for the last leg of the season.
Uniqlo Extended Placket Polo, $29.90
If you've been following the style content on the Loop you know we love ourselves some Uniqlo, and this polo's yet another reason why. You can never go wrong with well-priced, well-fitting basics with just the right amount of detail. This white polo is the only one you'll need to wear this summer.
Levis White 501, $68
Wearing white is one of the easiest ways to dress up your denim. Wear these with a simple stripe shirt and a navy blazer and you've got casual Friday nailed through September. **The whole "no white after Labor Day" thing was made up by somebody's mom. Wear it right and white can last you through winter.
Patrik Ervell White Club Collar Oxford, $110
A white oxford shirt is one of most integral pieces in a man's wardrobe. If your current one is starting to muffin top a bit out of your trousers, it's time for an update. The club collar and button pocket offers just the right amount of interest in this menswear mainstay.
RLX Cypress Tech Bermuda, $79.50
The only issue with white is that it will show off even the smallest dirt and divot stains. The polyester tech shorts from RLX look sharp but more importantly will continue to look that way wash after wash after wash.
Me Undies, $20
Save the fundies for valentines day and keep the undergarments light and white for summer. Me Undies is a new start up that sends you fresh basics made from organic fibers on subscription every other month.
Take a peak in your closet and figure out which of your whites are in need of an upgrade and start working your new gear into your game on and off the course this season.
