This month’s GQ has a feature called, “Raise The Flag”, which displays about five different shirt and tie combos of red, white & blue. With Independence Day just two days away, I thought it would be most appropriate to show some more ways to incorporate the colors of Old Glory into your wardrobe.

Red, white & blue is a relatively easy combo to pull-off. Most guys feel comfortable wearing a white dress shirt with a blue and red tie, or, a white t-shirt with blue jeans and a red hat. While those looks are classic, they are also safe/expected. Here are some suggestions to help you think outside the  box/push the limits when putting together your patriotic look.

Tips for styling Red, White & Blue:

  • Don’t overlook your accessories. A pocket square or watch strap can be the perfect finishing touch.
  • Don’t fall into the trap of only wearing red, white & blue shirt and tie combos.
  • Explorer the different shades all of these colors. You don’t have to stick to navy, bright red and stark white.
  • Explore patterns like stripes, plaids and gingham to work the three colors into your look
  • It’s summer time. Make your white trousers the base of your red, white

Some Quick Tips About Fit:

  • The sleeves of a polo shirt should stop at the middle of your biceps (if your sleeves hit your elbow your shirt is too long or too large).
  • A polo shirt should hug your shoulders
  • If you decide to wear a polo as a part of your red, white & blue outfit, go with a pattern. Solid colors polos can be a bit boring and can often mask your physique.

It’s been hot as hell out so far this summer, but, there are still times that you may need to throw on a blazer. Reach for your summer fabrics like cotton or in the case of this outfit, linen on linen (shirt and blazer are linen). Putting together a look with different shades of blue adds a bit of depth and keeps the summer aesthetic. Also, don’t freak out if you see wrinkles in your linen because wrinkles and linen go hand-in-hand.
