Once you’ve got the middle covered, don’t forget the beginning and end. Most men hesitate on hats, which means wearing one is a sign of strength and character right off the bat. Solids are for the serious, patterns like this Robert Graham black and slate fedora say you’re ready for anything, any time, anywhere—spring loafers in subtler shades will get you there. Gucci (camel colored leather, left) and Salvatore Ferragamo (beige suede, right) fashion theirs in hand stitched leather (it’s like butta!) topped off with natural accents. Tie: Saks Fifth Avenue label. Sunglasses: Ray-Ban gold-rimmed tortoise shell aviators. All at Saks Fifth Avenue (Huntington).
