We have a couple tips for your new spring summer suit styles to help you avoid looking the same as every year before.
1. The Olive Suit
When it comes to a new spring and Summer suite style, America has been fixated on the khaki suit for a while. To quote the January 2016 issue of GQ, “The Olive Suit: Italy’s Answer to America’s Khaki Fixation”. In the January issue of GQ, Bradley Cooper was featured in an $1,890 olive cotton suit, and a $350 shirt by Ralph Lauren Black Label. That can seem a little scary to the average guy wanting to upgrade his look. The suit you see featured to the right is also by Ralph Lauren and is available at your local Men’s Wearhouse at its regular price of $649.99. The olive suit has all the advantages of that standard khaki suit that we Americans love. The olive suit is versatile, lightweight, and it’s not the same khaki or gray suit that the rest of America is wearing. Now we don’t want to come off as implying that you are foolish to have or purchase a khaki or gray suit. You obviously cannot wear the same suit every time you leave the house. The olive suit is simply that little extra “wow” factor when you want to really stand out.
“A man should look as if he had bought his clothes with intelligence, put them on with care, and then forgotten all about them.”

Below is a little blurb from Gq’s review on the spring’s best European-refined styles.
Every few years, men’s style makes a dramatic shift, and right now a new breed of more worldly clothes is taking over. The new direction is less all-American prep and more European-refined—and very global in spirit. Which is why we tapped Bradley Cooper to lead our annual spring preview. You know the guy who once made playing jerks look too easy? Well, he’s now an international box-office draw and Oscar nominee. (Speaks French, too!) Here, he kicks off our journey through the new world of international style
