Having a Moment

Lighten Up

A chambray work shirt or oxford cloth button-down are staples of any well-dressed man's wardrobe. But why limit yourself to simply wearing them as shirts, when there's a slew of pieces this season cut from the same cloth? From oxford ties and pocket squares to chambray chinos and blazers, they're lightweight, comfortable and breathable. Just the kind of cool pieces you want to find yourself wearing when the mercury begins to climb.
