Summer Style & Going Green

A Publication of Regan Clothiers, Ltd.
June 2009


While overall style trends point to slimmer silhouettes, and trimmer fits, summer is the perfect time to loosen up a bit. Key pieces to consider for the season include unlined cotton and linen trousers and jackets, in a range of colors from the most neutral beige to bold and vibrant tones.

Allow us to propose three trouser styles for summer: a slimmer fitting flat front for the fashion adventurous, a roomier fitting single pleat or a more traditional double pleat for those who prefer comfort. Consider a forward facing pleated model in the English tradition for a seasonal change of pace.

Sustaining summer style is easy with custom options that give a very personal approach to each item in your wardrobe. The end result is a customized wardrobe where every item is your favorite style with just the right details. Whether it's sartorial details like buttoning surgeon's cuffs or a ticket pocket or hand pic-stitching on a power suit for breakfast in the boardroom or your favorite pocket flaps on your golf slacks, choosing the appropriate custom elements can diversify a wardrobe and provide versatility.

Keeping cool this summer is easier in your choice of custom fabrics in sophisticated weights, weaves and textures all designed for lightweight comfort and ease.

Q & A - Ask Jim

Question: Everyone seems to be going "green" these days. Is there a way to go "green" in my wardrobe, too?

Answer: Being environmentally friendly with your fashions begins by choosing the right fiber. Cotton is a miracle of nature. It's not only the world's most plentiful natural fiber, but it also produces enough seed to replenish our fiber needs while providing additional seed for food, feed and even oil. Cotton is sustainable, renewable, and biodegradable, making it an excellent choice as an environmentally-friendly fiber throughout its entire product life cycle. Most chemical fibers are petroleum based, which means they come from nonrenewable resources. So you can feel good about selecting your favorite cotton shirts and casual trousers knowing you are doing your part to be eco-conscious.
