My longtime homie Marwan (as featured here, here and here) was one of my first major style influences. He’s been wearing slim jeans, fitted button downs and sharp loafers since high school – when the rest of our crew was wearing baggy rocawear jeans and oversized throwback jerseys.
Marwan’s always had a clean and classic sense of style, and he’s living proof that if you invest in the the right items, you don’t need a huge wardrobe.
Here he shows us the versatility of a summer staple: the khaki cotton suit.
1. All Business
With a simple patterned shirt and striped tie, it’s perfectly appropriate for a warm day at the office, or a summer wedding.
The cotton suit is not strictly summer-only either. In my opinion it can be worn from roughly April-September (on the East coast) – that’s roughly half the year.
As always, though, dress according to the thermometer/weather report, not the calendar.
