Red, white and blue are not just patriotic shades or color combination most favored on flags. There is something quite charming about the combination of these three that when sartorially applied (without stars, of course), is quite chic. As layering has become an important trend in menswear today, cardigans have transgressed from professor-staple (like suede elbow patches) into a hip article of clothing that will soften the look of a button down and lend a learned, effortless cool to the tough man. While grey cardigans have been the go-to fail safe, visvim’s new Le Mans Cardigan in cream with two thin red and blue stripes adorning the right lights up spring layering and brings great seasonal cheer. Play with shades and patterns by pairing them with printed or checked button downs (leave top unbuttoned and the bow-tie at home), or keep it classic with a monochrome shirt. Will go with chinos, khakis or denim and look instantly pulled together with boat shoes or a pair of slouchy desert boots. Buy them now at NOTE, and love them forever.
