On the hottest day of the year, when you’re crammed into a streetcar, walking to lunch, and sweating on the commute to work, nobody really wants to be covered in clothes. But with the right summer suits, you’ll stay cool and collected. Lightweight wool, linen, and cotton suits are something every man needs to have in his wardrobe, even if a suit isn’t in your cards for every day.
I’ve been a fan of tuxedo blazers for a few years now, it’s the one item that can dress up your outfit from meh to outstanding in an instant. Now it seems that the industry is beginning to catch up, The Toronto Star had an article on them, GQ magazine did a spread on tuxedo blazers and Sharp Magazine did a beautiful editorial on them (most of them retailing for $1,000 plus)
Here is our pick of the best ones for the season:
One of my favourite sayings is “Look smart, be smart”, great clothes really do make you feel smarter.
Looking smart begins with your outerwear. We’ve all seen the boxy wool coats on Bay Street, and there’s nothing smart about them. This LAB by Pal Zileri wool coat is the essence of looking smart. The clean lines, modern slim fit and incredibly soft wool will have you arriving to work feeling smart, no matter what you did last night.
Pal Zileri is great at combining traditional pieces with a modern fit and look, and their LAB line is no different. With all the modern, contemporary menswear out there now, going back to the traditional patterns, colours and pieces is refreshing.
Wool jacket priced at $750.

This herringbone and plaid, wool sportscoat from LAB priced at $650 is sure to give you super powers. Unlike a blazer, this sport coat easily be done with black pants for a more professional look or dressed down with jeans on the weekend.
Everyone needs a black suit in their closet for those formal events, but what about a black suit for work or social events? Pal Zileri makes this great tweed suit priced at $995, with a subtle plaid pattern that gives it a more casual look.
I’m a big believer that guys should own more than one outerwear jacket, you need a Fall casual one for everyday and weekends, a more formal one for business and evening and a hard core winter one for when it’s minus 30 out. We’ve got some new ones in from LAB by Pal Zileri and Drykorn that will fit the bill for your everyday outerwear. Remember your jacket is the first thing that people see, so make sure you are making an entrance!
Lab jacket is $750
Functional and stylish this jacket has a quilted liner that zips up to the neck for added protection. It’s super light weight and the perfect throw-on when it looks like it’s going to get rainy and stormy out.
Leather is making a huge comeback, good thing because the leather jacket you have in your closet is the boxy shapeless style from the 90′s. Leather jackets are an investment piece and the right one will last you for years only getting better and more worn in as you wear it. Lab’s leather jacket is well priced at $1495, with great detailing and styling.
The military trend is still in this winter, Drykorn makes this suede jacket perfect for the military look. This is a great casual jacket that will add a bit of colour to your outfit while being warm and comfortable and makes a great statement piece.
Scarves pictured with jackets are by Allea and priced at $150.
Our new suits for Fall are making its way in, with LAB by Pal Zileri as one of our most anticipated arrivals. Constructed for the slimmer guy, these beautiful trim cut suits come in basic navy, plaid, and heavier wool fabrics. Starting at $895.
