Over the last few decades, few brands have held their place in American mainstream fashion like Banana Republic. When our clients are looking for casual, day-to-day pieces, we keep our eye out for style, fit and durability. A few weeks ago Banana Republic reached out to The Weitz Effect about incorporating a few of their latest Spring/Summer line into our day-to-day repertoire, and sent us a few pieces to try. Here were our favorites:
This season is all about breathable, comfortable activewear. A great lightweight, short-sleeve polo can be the most versatile piece during the hotter months. Banana Republic introduced their Slim Luxe Touch GEO Polo, which not only felt great, but also fit just right. You can wear it during intense activity (like sitting on a blazing tennis court in 90-degree heat 😜) or throw a blazer over it if you’re running to a quick meeting.
We paired the polo with another offering, these ultra comfortable Slim Traveler Pants in Navy. They come in a few other great colors too, that are worth checking out. They’re made well, soft and have a great feel on the move. The five pocket cotton pants will definitely get a lot of use over the next few months.
With all the rain we’ve gotten in the past few months, We were pretty excited to give Banana Republic’s Four-Pocket Military Jacket a try. Talk about staying dry in style. The cut is classic, and the neckline snaps all the way up with a hidden hood which is great if you’re traveling through alternating climates. It pairs well with basics like their Soft Wash Classic Crew t-shirt, and a lighter toned Slim Traveller Pant. They’ve really taken a classic look and made it modern and fresh, which is something we always look for when lining our client’s wardrobes.
Overall, it’s hard to ignore the style, quality, and accessibility of BR‘s new line. While their products have always been synonymous with American style, they’re latest collection is a great fit for the exceptional modern man.
