In the sprit of summer, we look to the classic combination of navy blue, red and white for the sophisticated male. Evoking the idea of nautical dress, which is traditionally associated with summer, the look can be delivered through a strong pinstriped pant like these by Salvatore Ferragamo or with a less obvious accessory like a top of the line timepiece with a blue face. Regardless of how literally one would like to attempt it, this trend has the beating heart of Americana, just for the Fourth of July.
