Casual night wear for AZ summers.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I can't wear jeans in summer any more... even at night... it's just too uncomfortable... and wearing flip flops to make it bearable looks terrible, IMO.

 

Chinos aren't particularly stylish for nights out.... and can be just as warm themselves.

 

Thus, I'm inclined to explore linen, but am a total newb... my knowledge of it extends basically to Easter slacks.  It seems like Tommy Bahama and others have some slimmer cut (and darker color) options that might work in the city at night, but that's from a catalog.  

 

Any suggestions for particular brands/cuts?  Suggestions for other options, like non-chino cotton pants that work at night?

 

What about shoes other than boat shoes and loafers without socks?  Not a fan of the former and the latter in leather is too much in 100 degrees.

 

Thank you!

What are you prepared to spend on one pair of pants?

 

For the second question I would say canvas sneakers but honestly for "going out" loafers are your best bet.

Have you had a look at performance brands, like Patagonia and The North Face? Yes, they are sports brands, but they specialise in materials that do things like wick moisture from your body and help it evaporate, they have features like vents in strategic locations, etc. It's amazing how much difference in temperature and comfort in very hot weather can be had through performance wear. They have trousers and even nice looking shirts (not T-shirts) that are great for summer... Just a thought... As far as shoes, I would go for some canvas slip ons that are not flip flops... something made of a breathable material maybe... http://www.spartoo.co.uk/Slip-ons-men-st-10218-10152-0.php

Suede loafers, if trying to look dressed up.

As for pants - http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/index.jsp?productId=25061836&ppp=99&pg=1&omniselect=View_All99&f=Men&kw=linen+for+men&parentPage=search
- but if it comes in the right size, it probably will be rejected due to the white color.

I'd go for linen, seersucker, and chambray. All very light fabrics. In that price range, I'd start with Brooks Brothers and J Crew. If you want to try some other things, check out unionmade and Mr. Porter, they both have some linen and cotton blend pants in stock.
