Menswear: Three Cheers for Casual

Relaxed menswear runs the gamut while balancing class with cool.

Dress code can be a little difficult to decipher down here on the Gulfshore. Formal events will still see partygoers in shorts; laid-back affairs will still see their fair share of sparkle. We like to see this as the flexibility to have some fun (and no matter your age). These three looks show three different interpretations of “casual,” each as acceptable as the next—and each proving you can stay sharp and comfortable at once.
