As spring approaches, we see a transition from winter layering that involves a sudden change in style, colors and even patterns. Personally, I don’t like the bright poppy colors that are usually trendy during the season, so this kit focuses on a subtler look. Trust me, that’s a good thing.

We begin by leaning in on the Gitman Brothers Vintage Japanese Printed Polka Dot Chambray Blue 40($168)—this brand is gaining fans and this shirt features an excellent fit. The GANT Rugger Summer Chino ($165) brings out the blue shirting while leading away from denim, which I see a little too much of. The Levi’s 1920’s SS Tee ($110) is a cool T-shirt to wear under the Gitman, and when it gets a little too hot, you can unbutton the Gitman and show off the Tee.

I threw in the McNairy Grain Derby Shoes ($350), which can mix a casual look with a more sophisticated style. The Moscot Miltzen Tortoise Eyewear ($225) is a fresh alternative to the standard Ray-Bans. We accessorize with the Eat Sleep Play Eyewear Case  ($105) and the Miansai Silver Hook on Brown Leather Bracelet ($60).

I included a Doane Paper Jon Contino Utility Notebook ($10.50) for jotting down brilliant ideas. Toss the accessories and whatever else you tend to bring on your endeavors in the Heritage Leather Co. Mason Bag, ($180) and you, sir, will be looking good.
