The Sartorialist isn’t convinced by shorts suits, but his images of sports jackets worn with shorts does indeed work well for the summer months.
I’m for all the idea of wearing shoes without socks but the reality is painful. These canvas Nanny State brogues are a great compromise, doing what Nanny State do best and mixing smart and casual.

This portrait of F.I.T student in New York magazine’s look book isn’t technically a short suit, it’s a blazer with shorts – but its close enough. We’ve seen a multitude of badly worn short suits lately but this one is a lot closer to looking good than the rest. For starters the top half is great, nicely tailored blazer, great shirt and nice use of colour with the tie. The bottom half of this look is a different story.
