The familiar advice offered to men who go shopping for new clothing is that you can’t go wrong with navy blue. The problem is you can’t go very far right either. As classic as it is, that color has been standard issue for business uniforms forever, meaning you and everyone sports them. This season, it’s time to promote your mufti to something more daring, while still staying in the same sector of the color wheel.

Happily, an ocean of other blue tones awaits. The collection for spring/summer from Stefano Ricci, Florence’s most exclusive menswear maker, is dubbed “man and the sea” with an imaginative palette that flashes cobalt blue, steel blue, gray-magenta blue, sapphire blue and gentian blue—everything, it seems, but navy.

The suit silhouette is a trim two-button jacket, with available matching vests. Evening wear is represented with midnight blue and ultramarine suit coats that double as smoking jackets. The color scheme bleeds into other categories, with dress, T- and polo shirts, as well as bags, loafers, shoes and eyewear. The company, which has collaborated with Arturo Fuente on a line of cigars, offers a tool kit (cutter and lighter) packaged in a gray-blue leather box. And what would a blue-themed collection be without blue jeans?
