Menswear this spring and summer for Hilton Head Island will be all about color, color, color.
The winter basics of black and taupe will transition to shades of coral, butter yellows, aqua, mint, tangerine and a variety of blues as the warmer season begins. These rich colors are evident in most sport shirts and knits with few exceptions. Fine line stripes, minichecks and bold plaids will contain these unique colors in combinations and will be standard fare for 2009. Even basic solid knit shirts today may have a different color in the placket or under the collar.
Soft, long-stabled cotton, linen, bamboo and knits with moisture wicking technology will be some of the sought-after fabrics this year. Shirts and knits will also continue to be available in light weight microfiber fabrics which provide comfort, non-wrinkling, and easy maintenance in the washer-dryer. Any of these fabrics are perfect for Hilton Head’s subtropical climate during the day, or wearing them under a light weight sport coat for an evening out.
