How to Create a Men’s Capsule Wardrobe for Summer Looks

How to Create a Men's Capsule Wardrobe for Summer Looks

Summer is here, and you men may be contemplating how you’re going to dress appropriately if needing an eye-catching wardrobe for vacation or work. Rather than go with the same old things you’ve worn forever, it’s time to consider a more versatile wardrobe to set the best impression. This is called a capsule wardrobe, something perhaps new to you. If so, take some time to learn what it is, why it’s important to consider, and the types of interchangeable components it offers to keep you looking fashionable daily.

Defining What a Capsule Wardrobe Is

A capsule wardrobe might sound like something archaic. However, it’s simply a way to own interchangeable clothing that complements each other. This is a classic way to dress, giving you opportunities to wear certain clothing items more than once when combined with something else.

The benefits of this are exponential, including saving money on buying extra clothing. Plus, you can make yourself look more fashionable in the process, including during the summer months.

If you’re looking to expand your wardrobe this summer, here are some capsule wardrobe choices to consider, including through us at Family Britches.

Capsule Wardrobe Ideas for Dressier Occasions

One good choice to consider for dressier moments is a soft-constructed hybrid jacket. Lubiam is a well-respected fashion name with these types of jackets, coming right out of Italy. You know you can’t go wrong with Italian fashion. 

As a hybrid jacket, wear this to business meetings or at social events. It has a few removable parts that can help you make it look more casual or dressy, depending on the situation. At the same time, it’s light enough to wear during the warmest months.

At Family Britches, you can also get a similar hybrid outer jacket from Tuscany. It comes with a European fit and stretchable fabric. 

Brax Trousers

Don’t forget about what type of pants you’re going to wear this summer. Brax is an excellent brand to consider since they offer hybrid pants to help you look casual or business. 

Their cotton and kapok trousers are a perfect choice if you want to combine them with business wear, or to look more casual. We provide Brax pants and also have a blog about them to help you make a smarter buying decision. 

One thing you’ll appreciate about Brax is they’ll help you traverse the worlds of work and leisure time without having to change pants for a specific occasion. 

See for yourself how Brax pants also work well with a business blazer when heading to an important business meeting. 

Dressing More Casually

You’re going to have a lot of moments this summer when you’ll want some comfortable casual clothes. Being comfortable is the first key in summer fashion, even if many of these ideas are modern fit. 

Let’s take a look at some ideas here to dress casually while still looking fashionable. 

A good starting point is buying a pair of Teleria Italian jeans. We carry Teleria jeans, and their jeans are unique in bringing a stretchable lightweight cotton blend. You can wear these with just about any type of outfit, defining it as an excellent capsule wardrobe choice. 

It’s not always possible to find pants this comfortable that work with any type of clothing. However, this is only the beginning of giving you a complete casual capsule wardrobe.


Another excellent fashion brand to consider is Stenstroms, which comes from Sweden. They’re renowned for creating dresses and sports shirts that go with virtually anything. 

You can wear these for everyday use, or keep them on when heading to a summer party. 

Our male customers should check out a Stenstroms sports shirt to use in similar situations as the women. 


Alex & Mike Faherty are the fashion masterminds behind the Faherty brand. We offer a comprehensive Faherty collection, bringing the best of summer wear for men.

At the top of the list is our Faherty shorts that are dressy enough for some business events, yet look chic for any casual situation. What we love the most about Faherty is how diverse they are in summer fashion. Casual shorts for men are just the beginning of what they offer.

Also, look into their casual pants, shirts, tops, and tees. Their focus is on comfortable fabrics, a must if you’re going to take on a capsule wardrobe in the right way. However, keep in mind we have a wide variety of women’s dresses, tops, and casual pants to help you take on your wardrobe with aplomb.
