The difficulty of staying comfortable in the summer heat is the code that everyone's trying to crack in the coming months. What helps is that we're able to rid of all of the stuffy accessories that would make that difficult (hence the obvious: scarves, hats, socks)
What should I replace these with what I have now?
Every man should wear a belt, but a much more comfortable and effortless look could be pulled off without it. H&M has curated a cotton shirt with an elasticized draw string waist band to keep them 'afloat'. Coming with side and back pockets, plus a mock fly, H&M refuses to give up the functionality that's usually lost in comfortable summer pieces.
The next step I'd like to see retailers make is creating more affordable draw string waist band chinos and dress pants for the summer months - at an affordable price that's available to me and you as opposed to the high fashion options that are available as of now.
