In a perfect world, days like today would require naught more but a pair of Bermudas and flip-flops.
But alas, many of us must continue to don suit and tie, rising mercury be damned.
The key: having the proper summer kit.
Which is why your pals at InsideHook have partnered with the dapper gents at Knot Standard and Crown & Caliber as well as Car and Driver and Road & Track to outfit you with not one, but two of said kits.
And a Rolex to boot.
Yes, you read that correctly. Two custom suits and a Rolex.
Regarding those suits: Knot Standard sends you a tape measure (or you can pop into their NYC showroom) to get your particulars, then builds a pattern designed specially for you and cuts your kit to order.
Their summer collection features lightweight travel wools and silk linen blends, all from top-shelf mills like Vitale Barberis and Loro Piana.
And because no good suit is complete without a timepiece to match: luxury watch marketplace Crown & Caliber is hooking you up with a certified pre-owned Rolex Air King, one of the most storied watches in the Rolie family, originally crafted for British fighter pilots.
Hot town, summer in the city, indeed.
