If you’ve been checking your calendar at all, perhaps you’ve been met with something of a shock: Memorial Day weekend is coming up. If that’s where you find yourself at this moment, you might have come across another shock: you’ve got nothing to wear. At least, nothing that exudes the balance of classic-yet-casual style you want to convey this summer. It’s an all-American holiday that calls for all-American style, so our men’s summer fashion picks include classic sneakers, a durable-as-heck watch from a trusted American brand, and a versatile chambray shirt fit for any occasion. Whether this weekend finds you out on the water or manning the grill, look great while doing it — the hard work is already done for you with this ensemble.

CIVIC Short-Sleeve Jack Shirt – $118
Whether your Memorial Day calls for a trip to the boardwalk or a more casual round of backyard brews, a short-sleeve chambray shirt nails that tricky balance between dressed-up and laid-back style.
Abercrombie & Fitch Mid-Length Plainfront Shorts – $48
