Men’s cloth­ier Chris Cuozzo in­jects sun and fun in his new sum­mer col­lec­tion.

Christo­pher Cuozzo has a goal. “I want men to dis­cover their

Sprez­zatura,” he says. The Ital­ian word, mean­ing “swag­ger,” is a key prin­ci­ple in Cuozzo’s col­lec­tion of men’s be­spoke ap­parel. “It means look­ing ef­fort­lessly cool.” And the Woburn-based Cuozzo is a master of cool, whether it’s cre­at­ing a cus­tom­ized dol­lar print-lined jacket for a Pa­tri­ots player, or ac­com­mo­dat­ing a start-up king who wants a quick trim at the hem. “Some­thing that’s al­ways in style is fit,” he says. “Jacket shoul­ders, sleeve lengths, pant lengths; make sure they’re all on point.” With that, he shared three of the hottest trends for men this sum­mer.

RE­LAX!

“This sum­mer is about a softer side of suit­ing; sneak­ers with suits and tai­lored sweat­pants. I re­fer to my jacket as a Swacket—a sweat­shirt meets a jacket. It comes in 10 col­ors and is com­pletely un­lined. It looks great over a t-shirt. Not ev­ery­one in a suit needs to wear a tie and lace-up dress shoes.”

SLIM AND SLICK

“A slim­mer cut is al­ways more flat­ter­ing. Also, a lit­tle to no break on the pants al­lows the an­kles to breathe while show­ing off the footwear. Re­gard­less of body shape, it’s im­por­tant for a cus­tomer’s cloth­ing to fit ap­pro­pri­ately.”

COLOR CODE

“Think all blue or all gray, or even at night, all black. The shades don’t need to match per­fectly —bet­ter yet, they shouldn’t. Think navy blue suit, navy blue dress shirt, blue shoes or sneak­ers, and even a navy blue tie. Add some phe­nom­e­nal fab­ric, unique style op­tions (i.e. but­tons, con­trast thread, side tabs, and a loud lin­ing) and you’ll turn heads wher­ever you go.”

Designer Christo­pher Cuozzo mod­els one of his fa­vorite suits in Mediter­ranean bright blue. Made from light­weight 100 per­cent wool, the suit is avail­able in a sin­gle or dou­ble­breasted de­sign.
