Some brand alliances just feel bound to happen, and this week sees three of them: Rowing Blazers x K-Swiss, A.P.C. x Lacoste, and Tracksmith x District Vision. While their temporary unions have produced some enviable merchandise, we’re also keeping tabs on towel shirts from Bryceland’s, cotton gauze camp shirts by Saturdays NYC and how Drake’s wears Edward Green. It’ll all make sense below.
Rowing Blazers x K-Swiss Si-18 Premier
The K-Swiss Si-18 was first introduced in 1989, but it’s never been more 1990s than today. That’s thanks to a redesign from Rowing Blazers creative director Jack Carlson, which sees the retro tennis sneaker turned out in a supremely ‘90s color scheme.
Saturdays NYC Cotton Gauze Canty Short Sleeve Shirt
All this time you thought that cotton gauze was reserved for first-aid kits. As it turns out, the lightweight and highly breathable material can also be used to make a top-notch camp collar shirt, as Saturdays NYC has so ably demonstrated.
Nicholas Daley X Browns Focus Patchwork Shirt Jacket
Channeling the flinty ethos of Prince Charles, this patchwork shirt jacket from Nicholas Daley has the look of a garment that’s been worn and repaired for 20 years—minus that 20 years part. Additional features like patch flap pockets at the chest and curved side-entry pockets make it sneakily utilitarian.
John Elliott Lucky Pocket Tee
What makes this pocket tee from John Elliott so lucky? We can’t say for sure, but we are appreciative of its simple, back-to-basics design and classic proportions.
Ghurka Express No. 2
At first glance, nothing about this Ghurka Express No. 2 bag looks out of the ordinary—after all, it’s the label’s original model. But then you realize: is that navy leather? Your eyes do not deceive you.
Onia Summer Denim Pull-On Shorts
We don’t quite understand the science, but it’s proven that once you add a drawstring waistband to a pair of jorts, they’re no longer jorts. That’s certainly the case with these denim pull-on shorts from Onia, which are also marked by a single, patch-flap back pocket.
A.P.C. x Lacoste Men’s Polo Shirt
Few labels have done more to define the idiosyncratic style niche known as “French Ivy” than Lacoste and A.P.C. The two brands have at last linked arms, and the fruits of their collaboration include this co-branded cotton piqué polo shirt in a classic cut.
Tom Ford Suede-Paneling Sneakers
How big is the chunky, suede-paneled sneaker trend? Enough that Tom Ford’s thrown his hat in the ring with this Italian-made pair, resulting in what might be the most luxurious dad shoe ever made.
Massimo Alba Convertible-Collar Cotton-Corduroy Field Jacket
Massimo Alba has managed to pacify the military-inspired field jacket by crafting it from plush corduroy. You know the rest of the drill: white denim, a blue OCBD and unlined loafers.
Bryceland’s Towel Shirt Coral Chocolate
When summer gets hot and sticky, don’t throw in the towel. Instead, throw on this towel shirt from Bryceland’s, which is made from soft terry toweling fabric on the inside and coral print rayon on the exterior.
Tracksmith x District Vision Kazu Tourer
Boston-based running brand Tracksmith and California-based running brand District Vision have joined forces to make a pair of sunglasses inspired by… 1960s and 1970s mountaineering. That might leave you with some questions, but just know that these sporty, Japanese-made shades feature glare-reducing side shields, shatterproof polycarbonate lenses and a hand-applied tortoiseshell pattern.
Billy Reid Organic Baseball Tee
A good baseball tee is as All-American as, well, the sport itself. This season we’re taken with Billy Reid’s effort, which ditches the classic white-torso-and-blue-sleeves regimen for colorways that are far more interesting.
Edward Green for Drake’s Harrow Loafer
Edward Green’s Harrow loafer, which can be easily identified by its softly rounded toe and hand-sewn “pie crust” apron, has been around long enough that King George V was a fan. But Drake’s has injected a little newness into the hallowed model by commissioning this exclusive version made from snuff suede.
Freenote Belford Straight Fit Denim
Look, summer doesn’t last forever—if you haven’t found your dedicated off-white jeans for the season yet, the clock’s ticking. In that case, we suggest this pair from Freenote, which is made in California from undyed, 14-ounce natural denim and equipped with a high waist and the gentlest of tapers.
Bennett Winch Briefcase
Rarely has a bag this practical looked so good. Bennett Winch’s brief is made from a lightweight waterproof canvas and equipped with a padded laptop sleeve, divided internal pockets and a rear leather panel designed to slide over the handles of your wheeled luggage.
