It's difficult to know what to wear in the evening in the summer months. You want to look summery but not too casual. You also want to dress up sometimes but most dressy items are made in fabrics like velvet or wool which are associated with winter and look decidedly stuffy. Enter the summer tuxedo, a lightweight version which you can wear with a pair of shorts or a T-shirt or vest. The best is this one by Michael Bastian for Gant, a shawl collared jacket in a blue and grey paisley with elbow patches. It's the right side of contemporary with heavy dose of vintage. Lose the bow-tie, it's been done, but keep the specs.
