You guys, it’s been a HEATWAVE in New England! Be careful what you wish for, right? Just kidding, I love it. I don’t give a shit. I have an air conditioner and I’m wearing shorts right now so WHATEVER, WEATHER! Last night we awoke to a 2 AM FUCKING HAILSTORM. I have been in lazy California elements for too long. This is serious.
Here’s something that I could have used yesterday:
This beautiful raincoat from Stutterheim is perfect for summer showers. Additionally, their company slogan is “Swedish Melancholy at its Driest.” What?! OK! I love the Nordics. They’re so intense.
Summer scarves are so much less awful when it’s a day of rain and not a whole summer of freezing fog. Check out this awesome situation, staring a guy from GQ Italia and proving, as usual, that everyone in Europe dresses better than us:
For your added convenience, here’s your Topman alternative:
As salty New Englanders say (in my office, yesterday), We skip seasons here. Tahday it’s spring, yestahday was summah.

Duh. A nice, modern twist on my favorite summer shoe.
Everyone knows that color is what’s up this season–even Boston! I’m really surprised because one year Michael famously wore a very bright combo here on a summer visit and people were all Stare-y McStares at her. Things have changed. Now even the commuter rail businessmen are blowing it up with shades of yellow, green and pink. It looks so good! Here, wear these:
If you are burlier than me–or a sassy gay man–you might be able to pull these off:
On another shoe tip, I’ve been seeing a lot of mid-tops with shorts, and I’m into it. I like these chukkas:
Finally, summer is all about manjewelry. I continue to covert this necklace by Giles & Brothers:
Yours, again, in weather solidarity,
