The first day of summer is coming up, so why not treat yourself to a new bathing suit? From simple, light prints to statement makers, see 12 picks for this summer from brands such as Parke & Ronen, (2)xist, Mr Turk and Saint Tropez’s Scalise.

In anticipation of Bonobos’ new Guideshop opening in Los Angeles on La Brea next month, the menswear brand is hosting a contest for a trip for two to the Golden Coast. Along with the two round-trip airfare tickets to Los Angeles, the winner will get a two-night stay at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel and a $1,000 Bonobos wardrobe—you can get a lot of their well known no-diaper-butt pants for that. Enter once now through June 8th.
In case you’re not familiar with the Guideshops, these are stores across eight cities at the moment—which include Boston, Chicago and New York (pictured above)—where you can try on all the styles they have to offer while a Guide (a sales person/stylist in a way) helps you pick out what you want to see. Then you order your items to be delivered right to your home. These Guideshops are great if you’re not familiar with the brand, if you’re traveling or just don’t like to carry shopping bags.

As the temperature drops from a warm New York Fashion Week, it’s time to pack away summer garbs and pull out the fall washes. A way to transition into fall is by having a style that utilizes two versatile trends: the denim shirt and use of camel.
Representing a summer tone, Daniel is wearing a light washed denim shirt from the LA-based denim specialist brand, Simon Miller, and we paired it with Bonobos‘ straight leg chinos in a bright camel-toned color—camel is an essential color for fall.
Shot around New Haven’s Yale, we accessorized the look with collegiate ready cap toe oxfords, a hand-woven navy tie from Everett, and a market tote from Herschel Supply’s new camouflage collection. Camo is a pattern that is still having its moment, but looks like it’ll be here to stay; making it perfect to include in your transitioning and fall wardrobe.
The mens apparel brand known for its well-fitted khakis in all the shades of the menswear spectrum, Bonobos, will now be offering a slim option to its tailoring line of modern suits, The Foundation Suits (which come in black, navy, charcoal and light grey).
“Fit is the most important detail for a suit. Marry that with classic color options and quality fabric, and you have a great looking, versatile suit for every occasion,” says Dwight Fenton, Bonobos VP of Design.
Along with the new slim fit suit options, Bonobos is also offering a three-peice suit option with introduction of vests (available in navy, charcoal and light grey).
