The transition of seasons can be challenging at times to dress for. It's either too hot for a heavy overcoat or too chilly for the summer tops. The easy solution is to dress in light layers that can be worn or taken off easily, portable, and won't affect the totality of the outfit when on or off.
This is probably in every guy's closet, but don't think of it as just a sweater. Rather think of it as a utility knife that can be worn alone, over a collared shirt, or the layering item under a suit or blazer. Banana Republic's blend of silk, cotton, and cashmere lends to breathability, comfort, and luxury.
We've agreed that versatility is the key to dressing for transitional seasons. The loafer probably more than any other shoe fills that niche. Sockless with shorts and chinos during the summer or paired with pants or denim, loafers pull double duty without any effort. Banana Republic's Pierce Loafer is a hand finished classic leather loafer with rubber outsole for maximum flexibility and comfort. Try these classic loafers with everything you wear and you'll be surprised at how flexible these shoes are.
