10 Killer Style Staples Just For Guys

We love summer for the following reasons: New sunglasses, food carts, cold beer, and men who get the warm-weather casual style vibe down right. News flash: T-shirts and khakis do not a wardrobe make. So, if you're one of those gents (or maybe it's your man-friend) who's in need of a little summertime style inspiration, look no further. At the urging of our in-house male muses (you know who you are), we've rounded up our ultimate wish-list for the easy-going dude with dash. Nothing fancy, just the very best basics we could find, and all the essentials a man about town needs right now to look great and feel good whether he's cruising on his bike or gearing up for the date that counts. So, print this out and keep it in your back-pocket. Trust us: It's a turn-on.
