Ask Chris Black: I’m Attending a ‘Resort Casual’ Wedding. Any Style Recs for Men?

The dress code for a summer wedding I’m attending is “resort casual.” Any style recs for men?

I recall when I was at a beautiful wedding in Kalamáta in southern Greece, the heat was oppressive. The vows were uttered while guests withered away on what felt like the equator. I had chosen a classic Thom Browne shorts suit and felt like a genius. I was still sweating, but the fresh air my legs received helped me power through. But that look isn’t for everyone.
