>> i found style, white hot fashion. move over men in black, this summer men are in white . the senior editor of "gq" magazine. welcome.
>> good to see you.
>> we hear white , i'm not sure.
>> a little intimidating. first thing you think of, don johnson , miami advice, colonel sanders .
>> good role models.
>> that's not what we're doing here. we think the coolest suit is white , literally. you're going to be dry and looking good.
>> first starting off, robin wearing white jeans.
>> if you're not used to wearing white in the summer, white jeans are a great place to start. five or six years ago it felt like a trend but it hasn't gone away. it's not a trend anymore, it's a staple, something you should have in your wardrobe when it's homohot.
>> h&m, $20. keep with a dark t-shirt. the white is statement enough. keep it simple from there. if you want to dress it up a little bit, a blazer is a way to do that.
>> yeah, super lightweight , keeps you cool.
>> thanks, robin. next, a bolder all white look, kind of the tom wolfe look. the full suit which andrea is wearing. what's the key to pull this off.
>> number one question, my friends, five summer weddings. they are worried about what to wear. this summer, just get in white suit, wear it to any wedding any time of day. dress it with a plaid shirt, dark tie, dark pair of shoes.
>> let me ask a question. he's obviously let himself go. what if you're not in the same shape as andrea, a full figured guy, can you pull this off.
>> the key is they are nice and slim cut. no matter what shape, spend a little more time in the gym with a trainer, these will slim you down a little bit.
>> thanks so much. don't want to go with the full white suit, can you go with maybe a little bit of a blazer, nice compromise. we've got andrew with this look.
>> a lot of guys worry, i don't have a ton of money. i don't know if i want to buy a suit i'm only going to wear a couple times a year. white is versatile. leave the pants at home and just wear the white blazer.
>> if you stain you have a problem.
>> if you stain it a little bit, not too many problems. summertime, a grass stain, natural dirt from walking around, that's not a problem. a couple of wrinkles, you've just got to kind of own it and go with it.
>> thank you very much.
>>> casual daytime look. when it gets hot, michael in white shorts.
>> the thing about white shorts, some guys know they can wear them for golf. at gq we think there's a way to make it hipper. instead of pink polo, going super preppy or dorky, has he a denim shirt, looking more cool, going to have drinks at a summertime barbecue, top it off with a straw fedora, makes you hot. a change-up the way you think of white shorts.
>> the thing is contrast.
>> the don johnson comes into play when you wear electric orange.
>> get everyone out here.
>> will welch, thank you so much. gentlemen, thank you. you
