The official start of spring heralds a return to outdoor sports, and more importantly for our purposes, outdoor sportswear. That’s why we’re taken with such athletic-inspired pieces as Anglo-Italian’s newest windbreaker, Ron Dorff’s checkered tennis shorts and heavyweight jersey track pants by Paul Smith. But it can’t be all athletics all the time, so we’ve rustled up a maritime Fair Isle from Drake’s, a pair of velvet espadrilles by Anderson & Sheppard and a whole lot more below.
Drake’s Cotton Cashmere Summer Fair Isle Jumper
Drake’s proves that there is such a thing as a summertime Fair Isle, provided that nautical motifs including crabs, sailboats and anchors feature in its pattern. Its lightweight blend of cotton and cashmere helps, too.
Frescobol Carioca Faustino Terry Cloth Polo Shirt
If you need a refresher on why terry cloth polos are a thing, consider the “Faustino” from Frescobol Carioca. The Anglo-Brazilian label makes its version from a silky blend of cotton, linen and Tencel that feels like that first sip of an ice-cold Caipirinha.
The Row Edward Wool and Linen Coat
Those bemoaning the end of big-coat season will rejoice in this belted balmacaan from The Row, which is composed of a lighter-weight alpaca-linen blend. Try it over a fine-gauge merino turtleneck and tailored cotton trousers.
Sporty & Rich Wellness Ivy Crewneck Sweatshirt
Yes, the overall concept of “wellness” continues to be one of the hottest trends. Rather than radically altering your diet and daily routines, you can wear this cotton crewneck sweatshirt that simply announces your intentions to do so.
Flint and Tinder Fatigue Short
There’s nothing fatiguing about these Flint and Tinder camouflage shorts, which are based on the M1942 “Frog Skin” pattern first developed for Marine Raiders in WWII. Design features like an interior drawstring waist and rear patch-flap pockets may be of use in your weekend special operations.
Anderson and Sheppard Velvet Espadrilles
A lush velvet upper transforms this espadrille into the sand-friendly equivalent of the smoking slipper. Wear them with a linen suit to an oceanfront wedding, or with a pair of swim trunks and a tee to upgrade your poolside look.
Dior CD Diamond Cardigan
The fashion house’s iconic “CD Diamond” pattern, first designed in 1974, graces this knit cardigan made from a technical wool-mohair blend. Toss it over simple ensembles like a white tee and stone chinos and let it do all the talking.
Anglo-Italian Wind Breaker Jacket
Anglo-Italian’s latest windbreaker design is made from a blend of organic cotton and technical fabric that gives it a crinkly hand and a robust body. A welted breast pocket provides it with the slightest touch of tailored appeal.
Todd Snyder Italian Sutton Trouser
Todd Snyder’s rescued the checked trouser from Caddyshack territory by opting for Italian stretch wool in a medium-scale, multicolored gingham. Tailored details including an extended tab closure and a tapered leg add further polish.
Ron Dorff Checkered Tennis Shorts
Drawing on the sublime style of early ‘80s tennis stars like John McEnroe and Björn Borg, these shorts from Franco-Swedish sportswear label Ron Dorff feature a retro checked pattern and a striped waistband. But more importantly for those working on their backhand, the shorts are cut from a breathable stretch polyester and feature side slits for extra freedom of movement.
New & Lingwood Suede Overshirt
There may be a glut of overshirts on the market, but New & Lingwood’s latest sticks out by virtue of its supple goat suede fabric and a workwear-inspired design with squared-off patch-flap pockets at the chest and side-entry pockets below. Wear it casually with work boots and jeans, or leave its collar standing with a silk scarf tied below for a more debonair tilt.
Amalgam Collection Porsche 917 Martini 1:18 Model Car
What’s the next best thing to owning the Porsche 917 that Gijs van Lennep raced to victory at the 1971 Le Mans? Owning this exacting 1:18 scale replica, which unlike the original, will fit on your desktop. “Vroom vroom” sounds not included.
PS Paul Smith Men’s Joggers
If you’ve decided to take the track pant plunge this season, this pair from Paul Smith is where to start. Cut from a heavyweight stretch jersey and emblazoned with a bold yet classically hued stripe, you might wear them alone with a tee or pair to a matching jacket to rock the full kit.
Paul Stuart Plaid Linen-Silk Highlander Jacket
Paul Stuart has retooled its Highlander Jacket for the warmer months, crafting it from a breathable blend of 82 percent linen and 18 percent silk. But it hasn’t lost any of its distinct touches, including a half-belted back, bellows pockets and leather accents at the sleeves, pocket corners and elbows.
The Power for the People Fred Color Block Bermuda Shorts
We’re not sure what revolution these Power for the People Bermuda shorts are fighting for, but based on their color-blocked camouflage design, we’re in. Match their edge to a plain black tee and a pair of slides.
