Patrick James District Check Sport Coat for  men

For Your 5-Star Dinner

This isn't your first rodeo - you know that your sweetheart will always swoon for a fancy dinner and a glass of bubbly. You made these reservations six weeks ago, and you're honestly just ready for a good steak. For this fine-dining experience, jackets are required, and we highly recommend looking the part with the Patrick James District Check Sport Coat. Let the pattern on the sport coat speak for itself, and pair with the Gitman Brothers Long Sleeve Point Collar French Cuff Pinpoint Dress Shirt. Go for a simple dress slack, such as the Reserve Loro Piana 130s in charcoal, and add a detailed touch with the Trask Rogan Wingtip Oxford Shoes. Finish it off with the Magnanni Carbon Belt, and don't forget to sign the card you picked up.

Patrick James Vintage Washed Lambskin Leather Jacket for  men

For Your Rom-Com Request

Your date"/SKU is simple, and you know that your significant other has been itching to see that new film that just hit theaters - some guy named Nicholas Sparks or something. Whatever it is, you're ready to sit back, relax, and snack on some popcorn with your loved one. You want to dress for the occasion, but keep things cool and casual. Start off with the Patrick James Vintage Washed Lambskin Leather Jacket, and layer with the Johnnie-O Dale Washed Short Sleeve Tee Shirt. Continue the faded look with the AG Graduate Distressed Jeans and complete the look with a pair of Magnanni Elonso Taupe Leather Sneakers.

Peter Millar Colorblock Wool Linen Sweater for  men

For Your Weekend Getaway

A road trip is just what Cupid had in mind. In that case, we recommend spending the weekend by the water. Make it a classy event with nautical influences, with the Peter Millar Colorblock Wool Linen Sweater. This quarter zip will layer perfectly with the Johnnie-O Price Diamond Print Short Sleeve Sport Shirt and the 34 Heritage Charisma Comfort Jeans in camel. The Peter Millar Seaside Mesh Mariner Sneakers are ideal for the occasion (hence the name).

Pro tip: Surprise your special someone with a catamaran sunset cruise for two. You're welcome.

With these pairings, you'll definitely "wow" your date - like a true gentleman always does. Happy Valentine's Day from the Patrick James team.
