If you pay attention to the menswear world you've probably seen Nick Wooster more than a handful of times sporting his trademark suit and shorts combo. It's a look that makes for a perfect summer suit, but it's also a pairing that might scare some guys simply due to the fact that it's a a suit...and shorts.

To get the look right, all it takes is a bit of confidence and a give no f---s attitude. Just ask Nick. J.Crew's version is a perfect summer option with its cotton-linen blend and its unconstructed blazer. The classic tartan pattern is also a great touch and if you still need a little more convincing, J.Crew's got a great little interview with the "Woostgod" himself on taking sartorial risks.
