ou can’t just shell out the cost of a ticket to the Concours d’Elegance at Pebble Beach and then show up wearing what you rolled out of bed in. Walking the beautiful oceanside golf course with all manner of beautiful automobiles at your fingertips calls for some dressy duds and proper accessories. It’s far more than just a car show; it’s an automotive cultural event like no other, and just about everyone comes decked out to the nines. But it’s also no time to break out the tuxedo. This kit will have you comfortable enough to spend the day ogling wire wheels and handsome hoods while still looking sharp.

The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance Punchlist

Suitsupply Hudson Lite Brown Plain Jacket ($399)
A versatile, form-fitting jacket that’s great dressed up or dressed down.

Fjällräven Travel Blazer ($235)
Sophisticated outerwear that can also be worn with a tie.

March + Held Chambray Shirt ($125)
It’s not just the muscle cars at Pebble that are American made. This shirt toes the line between dressy and casual.

Brooks Brothers Silk Knit Tie ($80)
This tie is equal parts modern and vintage.

Flint & Tinder Prospect Chino ($100)
Great-fitting chinos are a necessity. Just right for drives and strolls around the 18th hole.

Kent Wang The Great Wave Pocket Square ($45)
If you want a dramatic pocket square, it doesn’t get more tsunami-like than this.

Shinola Runwell The Black Watch ($600)
This Detroit-made gold watch oozes sophistication with a green leather strap.

Oris Chronoris ($3,395)
An auto-racing inspired chronograph that just so happens to come in Gear Patrol colors.

Allen Edmonds Park Avenue ($385)
American made and nothing but classy.

Eyefly Bourbon Street Aviators ($94)
Crisp polarized lenses plus a simple metal frame equals manly style.

Crown & Buckle Watch Straps ($12-$65)
Because variety is the spice of watch ownership.

MAXX&UNICORN CO. Leather Eyewear Sleeve ($50)
Hand stitched. Made in America. And most importantly, a bulky case wouldn’t go well with your suit.

Oakley Custom Woodgrain Frogskins ($100)
Old-school frames in a more sophisticated hue.

Olympus PEN P-E5 ($800)
Because you want great photos without the DSLR boat-anchor weight.

Davidoff Special R ($70)
Lighting up on the green never tasted so good.

XIKAR EX Lighter ($60)
An executive-style lighter when a Bic will never do.
