Smart Casual – The Lacoste Way Gent on the street 9 June, 2015 With everything from sports clothing and footwear to shirts and chinos, Lacoste is one brand that a Gent can regularly visit, yet maintain a healthy variety in his wardrobe. This summer, the brand pays homage to founder Rene Lacoste and his wife Simone de la Chaume; the Crafted Silhouettes collection embraces golf-inspired design paired with streamlined aesthetics and timeless elegance. After Lacoste kindly sent us a pair of their Sherbrooke suede leather derbies, we decided to pick out four key pieces from their ss15 range to achieve a smart casual look this summer. Lacoste Sherbrooke 14 Available in navy, grey and tan, the Sherbrooke derbies are made from suede leather, and Lacoste branded eyelets. These are complemented by a colourful sailing inspired, siped rubber outsole, great for practicality and perfect for the summer season. Having road-tested the Sherbrooke’s, they proved to be comfortable and durable. Argyle Socks These multi-coloured Argyle socks are suitable for all occasions and look great with shoes and chinos. Available in four other colour combinations. Slim Fit Pants Summer season is the perfect time to pull out a pair of chinos and of course beige is the perfect starting point. These Lacoste pants are crafted from cotton twill. Slim Fit Shirt Made from cotton poplin, this electric blue shirt perfectly complements the beige chinos. Roll the sleeves for a more casual look.
