Lightweight Chinos // Prewashed for more than 300 minutes, these supersoft pants are made for warmer weather.
Genuine Indian Madras // Named for Madraspatnam (modern-day Chennai), the city that invented one of summer’s official fabrics.
The New Seersucker // It’s not just for horse races anymore. These days, this seersucker’s smooth and textured stripes look cool on easygoing shorts, shirts and drawstring pants.
Piqué Polos // First, choose from tipped, sun-faded or broken-in. Then wear them with shorts or a suit, to the office or the beach. (Piqué is a weaving style that results in soft, raised geometric patterns.)
Striped Tees // Inspired by vintage California surfers’ T-shirts, this piece work equally well with board shorts or under a blazer in the boardroom.
