Yes, we’re all chomping at the bit for proper spring at this point, but—momentary bursts of warm weather notwithstanding—we’ve still got some ground to cover. In other words, it’s a good time to consider illustrated slippers from Oliver Jeffers, Casentino half-zips by way of Drake’s and a particularly luxurious desert boot from Loro Piana. As we were saying:
Todd Snyder Italian Denim Western Shirt
There appears to have been an arts and crafts night at the O.K. Corral, which would explain this Western-style, paint-splattered denim shirt from Todd Snyder. Try pairing it with black denim for a Jackson-Pollock-meets-Johnny-Cash vibe.
Drake’s Casentino Wool Half-Zip Pullover Fleece
Love fleece but not synthetic fabrics? If that sounds like you, Drake’s has you covered with this sporty half-zip crafted from 100 percent Casentino wool dyed a rich, deep shade of navy.
Engineered Garments Trucker Jacket
Engineered Garments has come for the Trucker Jacket that, untraditionally, features just a single patch-flap outer pocket and two pockets inside. Rendered in velvety needlecord, the made-in-New-York piece also benefits from an adjustable rear belt and a stand-up collar with a throat latch detail.
Aspesi Five-Pocket Pants
These denim pants from Aspesi aren’t quite chinos because of their five-pocket construction but can’t be classified as jeans due to their welted back pockets. What to call them, then? Perhaps “those pants that go with just about everything.”
Loro Piana Open Walk Wish Wool Desert Boots
This is how Loro Piana does a desert boot: with water-repellent Merino wool and hidden elastic gores that make laces a thing of the past. Pair the luxe chukka with white denim (see Aspesi’s above) and a cozy roll neck while it remains frigid, swapping in light-washed denim and a linen blazer come summertime.
Brunello Cucinelli Striped Double-Breasted Blazer
The maestro of Solomeo has gone and made chalk stripes cool again. His secret? Spacing them out for a minimal look and adding easy patch pockets that feel more Via Montenapoleone than Wall Street.
Noah Eisenhower Jacket
Military-inspired field jackets typically take their looks from Vietnam-era models, but Noah has dialed it back to WWII with the aptly named Eisenhower Jacket. Available in a traditional army green or a non-regulation floral, the cotton herringbone topper features dual chest pockets, a hidden button closure front and a belted waist.
A.P.C. Iggy High
At a time when white sneakers have become dangerously overdesigned, A.P.C. has gone back to basics with this retro high-top that features a cotton-canvas upper and a rubber-reinforced toe and heel. Add chinos and a grey sweatshirt to achieve minimalist perfection.
Wales Bonner Sunrise Striped Bowling Shirt
Are we in the midst of a bowling shirt renaissance? The jury’s still out, but the appearance of this handsome striped cotton-silk number from Wales Bonner points towards the affirmative.
Connolly Performance Parka
Yes, there’s still enough frigid weather left to necessitate a new parka purchase. Particularly when it’s this performance-minded piece from Connolly, made from wool with a water-resistant membrane and finished by generous side pockets and a peak hood.
RRL Cotton-Blend Full-Zip Cardigan
God bless this Cowichan-style zip cardigan from RRL, which is knit from 10 different yarns including wool, linen and indigo-dyed cotton, and chock-full of patriotic motifs. Throw it over a white tee, raw denim and your best work boots and call it a day.
Dunhill Men’s Metal Aviator Sunglasses
As proper aviator season approaches, you don’t want to be caught without. To that end, consider this tastefully squared-off, Navigator style from Dunhill, which is made in Japan with refined gold-toned hardware and a double nose bridge.
Oliver Jeffers x Feit Slippers
Irish artist Oliver Jeffers has linked up with FEIT to introduce this limited-edition unisex calfskin slipper, which is also available in children’s sizes and is sold with an illustrated book telling the story of man’s relationship with the natural world. The buttery vegetable tanned leather is embellished with motifs from Jeffers’ book, from hammers to campfires. Wear with your favorite jeans, a well-loved white tee and your little one.
Graziano & Gutierrez Chore Coat in Hand-Loomed Cotton
The process of making this lightweight Graziano & Gutierrez chore coat begins in Oaxaca, Mexico, where its diamond-patterned fabric is hand-woven on pedal looms. Afterward it’s hand-assembled in Portland, Oregon, with raglan sleeves, oversized patch pockets and an easy, unlined construction.
Private White V.C. The Moleskin Bomber
We’re used to bombers being crafted from rather thick hide leather, but Private White V.C. has softened the style with brushed cotton moleskin. Aided by a small amount of elastane for stretch, it’s destined to be an easy-to-reach-for complement to button-downs and denim.
