It’s time to take stock of your spring-summer wardrobe essentials and see what’s missing. If you’re in need of a denim pearl snap, Officine Générale will provide. Missing that perfect pair of white jeans? P. Johnson has you covered. Do you not yet have a pair of swim trunks made from Super 120s Australian merino wool? Oddly specific, but a new collection from Vilebrequin and Woolmark takes care of that, too. And we’re sure you’ll fill in any remaining gaps with the wares below.
Officine Générale Felix Denim Shirt
If you haven’t yet picked up a denim pearl snap for the season ahead…you’re out of luck as they’ve all sold out. Obviously, we’re kidding, as many fine examples exist including this lightweight, 100 percent cotton iteration from Officine Générale.
Varsity Headwear Cap
If this Italian-made linen baseball cap looks familiar to you, there’s good reason. Its checked pattern is inspired by the gingham upholstery of 1960s Porsche 911s. And crucially, it is easier to acquire than a 1960s Porsche 911.
Casablanca Tennis Club Coach Jacket
Paris’s Casablanca and LA’s Maxfield have joined hands to create a 50-piece capsule collection dubbed “Desert Phantastica.” We don’t know exactly what that phrase means, but if we had to guess we’d define it as this padded coach’s jacket complete with blue piping and some supremely retro tennis-themed graphics.
Bode Lobster Print Striped Cotton Shirt
Lobster print shorts might be a little affected, but how about lobster print shirts? You’ll get a pass with this striped Bode number, which places a red crustacean on each of its front chest pockets to delightful effect.
Yuketen Native Slip-On Leather Loafers
Leather moccasins can look a little delicate—but not if you build them on top of a big ol’ ridged rubber sole, as is the case with Yuketen’s Native slip-on. Wear the designed-in-Japan, made-in-Maine style with patchwork chinos and a gingham camp shirt.
Drake’s Cotton Hemp Games Blazer Mk. IV
Were Tom Wolfe living today, we imagine he’d step out wearing this cotton-hemp “Games Blazer” from Drake’s (with its matching pants, of course). An unconstructed, workwear-inspired silhouette with wide lapels and the perfect ecru shade make it a worthy successor to the plain white suit.
Brooks Brothers Milano Slim-Fit Madras Chino Pants
Tonal fabric scraps make this patchwork madras pant from Brooks Brothers a (comparatively) subdued choice. Not quite “go to hell” pants—but maybe “go to heck”?
Guanábana Tula Bag
Artisans belonging to Colombia’s indigenous Wayuu people crocheted this Guanábana bag inspired by traditional Wayuu backpacks. Its rounded base and large, open top provide storage space for many, many Topo Chicos.
Vilebrequin x The Woolmark Company Super 120s Woolen Swim Trunks
Wool bathing suits are more closely associated with the Victorian era than 2022, but that could be changing thanks to a collaboration between Vilebrequin and Woolmark. The unlikely alliance has produced this pair of swim trunks made from a soft, water-resistant Australian merino wool that boasts natural breathability and UV protection.
Mr. P Cotton and Silk-Blend Blouson Jacket
Blousons can appear bland, but certainly not when they’re made in a wispy silk-cotton blend, and definitely not when the color options are a pastel pink or blue. As a result, use it as an exclamation point over simple outfits like crisp chinos and a plain white tee.
P. Johnson Tony Jeans
This summer’s white jeans are coming from Down Under, as P. Johnson has introduced a new denim line marked by organic cotton, Italian manufacturing and a dyeing process that uses 15 percent less water. Their classic cut ensures easy wear with polo shirts and sport coats alike.
RRL Geometric-Intarsia Knitted Cotton-Blend Cardigan
We could give you the straight facts on this RRL cotton-blend cardigan—it’s knit from a mix of 48 percent linen, 38 percent cotton and 14 percent silk—but that doesn’t do justice to design features like a Southwest-inspired, intarsia-knit pattern and embossed metal buttons. A shawl collar, patch pockets and a belt place it firmly in the “abide” camp.
Wood Wood Pleat-Detail Bermuda Shorts
Last summer’s vogue for short-shorts must contend with this rejoinder from Wood Wood, which maintains a classic Bermuda short length and throws in a single pleat for good measure. Counter the geezer vibes by tucking in a printed silk shirt or a heavy cotton tee.
Anglo-Italian Country Coat in Technical Cotton
If you’re mourning your Barbour jacket’s impending seasonal obsolescence, take heart. Anglo-Italian’s Country Coat makes a worthy substitute thanks to its lightweight, technical cotton-blend fabric and a plethora of shooting jacket-inspired features like oversized flap pockets and a scalloped storm flap.
Grenson Men’s Sneaker 51
Northampton shoemaker Grenson may be most readily identified with leather wingtips, but it’s turning a new leaf with this retro sneaker that borrows from ‘70s running shoe design. A multicolored upper made with perforated calf leather, suede detailing and a rubber toe bumper set up a rich textural contrast.
