Interested in the new summer trends for men’s suiting? Here, we have three stylish men with three bold looks. From daring summer fabrics and shirts to a classic look, these summer suits certainly surprise. Take a look at what we’ve chosen as the best looks this August.

La Vida Loca

Ricky Martin has come a long way since his singing days almost twenty years ago, especially in his fashion choices. This week on August 10th in Porto Cervo, Italy, whilst attending the Unicef Summer Gala Photocall Presented by Luisaviaroma, Martin, 46, wore a powder blue three piece suit with a lovely silk lining and bold contrasting cream and floral shirt in matching pastels.

He opted for a black shoe and a sleek bearded look.

Recently seen in American Crime Story about the life and death of designer Versace, Martin looked comfortable and confident in this look with straight-cut trousers and a long-cut suit jacket, which would be perfect for a summer wedding or party.

What do you think? Would you wear this summer outfit? Waistcoats are definitely on-trend this year.

A Suit Fit for Gaston

Known for his roles as Gaston in the updated adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, Apollo in Clash of the Titans, and Dracula in Dracula Untold, actor Luke Evans, 39, looks the picture of manly elegance as he promoted Stella Artois on August 9th in New York City.

His well-cut grey wool waffle-weave patterned jacket complete with cream handkerchief in the pocket was paired with a pair of closely coloured trousers, black loafers without socks, a black belt, and a mid-grey-blue shirt with subtle patterning.

Evans’ slick back hair and moustache hark back to times past with a look that is thoroughly modern. The look is stylish and understated and is suitable for parties, weddings, and – for those daring men – maybe even the office.

Would you wear a light suit for occasions other than outdoor garden parties in weddings? Let us know. This isn’t the first time we’ve called Evans out for his impeccable style: check out some of his other suiting looks here.

A Guardian of Style

Our final look of the week is another live-action Disney favourite, Richard Madden, 32, who is known mostly for his role on Game of Thrones. During the August 6th photo call for his upcoming BBC One drama and political thriller, The Bodyguard, Madden, looking almost unrecognisable with slick jet-black hair and bold black eyebrows, rocked the red carpet (um, brown floor?) alongside co-star Keelie Hawes.

Madden opted for a simple single-breasted classic dark-grey-almost-black suit with an unusual single button closure detail. He paired it with another classic crisp white shirt, white pocket handkerchief, and shiny black leather shoes.

He opted to go without a belt and tie, unbuttoning his shirt to expose chest hair. What do you think about this variation of styling on the classic suit?
