Among the pleasures warm weather has to offer is a far greater range of shirting options. For instance: open-weave linen-cotton polos from Anglo-Italian, Tencel gabardine patio shirts by Wythe and endearingly boxy leisure shirts by way of Todd Snyder. On the non-top front, we’ve also got a surprising footwear collaboration between Cassius Hirst and Prada and a perhaps less surprising but no less gratifying team-up from Persol and Dolce & Gabbana. A lot more of that below.
Todd Snyder Striped Leisure Shirt
What makes Todd Snyder’s leisure shirt so…leisurely? For starters, it has a more generous fit than the label’s other camp collar shirts and it’s made from a daube-striped Japanese fabric that proudly announces your off-the-clock status.
Cass x Prada America’s Cup “Att4ck” Sneakers
Prada tapped artist Cassius Hirst to redesign its America’s Cup sneaker, and the Gen Z artist (and progeny of Damien Hirst) has obliged. The “Att4ck” sneaker—one of 22 produced in the collaboration—is made from leather and marked by a spray-painted finish that gives each an individual, crackled effect.
J-B-J Heal the World Jacket
Dutch label J-B-J may not have the solution to global conflict, but they have created this cotton shirt jacket that advocates for world peace via a charming hand-embroidered graphic created by Indian artisans. Wear it with a crewneck tee, carpenter pants and a hopeful disposition.
Epperson Mountaineering Packable Climb Tote
Montana’s Epperson Mountaineering is responsible for this devilishly clever tote, which is made in the U.S.A. from windproof nylon ripstop and includes multiple webbing loops to hold your climbing gear (or apartment keys). And though it has a total holding capacity of 19 liters, it can be neatly packed away into an internal zip pocket for easy transport.
Bode Cowboy Crewneck
If Andy from Toy Story grew up to be a hypebeast, we imagine he’d be rocking this Bode crewneck inspired by a children’s cowboy sweater from the 1960s. Just don’t mistake this wool-cotton piece for child’s play: Multiple knitting techniques including jacquard and intarsia were employed to get the visuals just right.
Blame inflation, but the penny loafer just won’t cut it this summer. Instead, look to this lightly antiqued leather loafer from Tod’s, which features a metal chain decoration across its welt and a pebble-embossed rubber outsole that provides traction following sun showers.
Billy Reid Treme Block Shirt
Billy Reid doesn’t do dollar oysters—understandable as it’s a Southern-influenced menswear label and not a restaurant—but it does do oyster shirts. In particular, this short-sleeve number with a bivalve-heavy block print that was lifted from a watercolor painting.
Lardini Linen Canvas Suit
The pandemic didn’t dethrone tailoring—but it did cast off its 9-to-5 stuffiness. Make the most of its new freedom by embracing this softly tailored linen-canvas Lardini suit garment-dyed to a pleasing shade of dusty pink.
Dolce & Gabbana x Persol PO3295S
In what may be the best Italian pairing since tomatoes and mozzarella, Dolce & Gabbana has linked arms with Persol to produce a capsule collection of acetate eyewear influenced by the former’s bold design choices. Of particular note is the oversized PO3295S, which comes in eight colors ranging from the classic Havana to transparent orange.
Missoni Striped Woven Shirt
Missoni has applied its signature chevron stripes to this 100 percent viscose shirt just in time for proper hot weather. A pair of drawstring linen trousers and fisherman’s sandals feel like appropriate companions.
Lanvin Lace-Up Suede Sneakers
Lanvin has taken the classic shape of the humble court sneaker and upgraded it with luxurious suede. Accent its stealth-wealth appeal with off-white jeans and a simple, solid-colored polo.
Wythe Tencel Gabardine Patio Shirt
Patio season requires a proper patio shirt, and this season Wythe delivers with an iteration made from silky Tencel gabardine. That material itself would be interesting enough, but the shirt also stands out with pleated and flapped chest pockets and natural mother of pearl buttons.
Anglo-Italian Knitted Polo
We love knitted polos in theory—but in practice, they can prove a bit heavy for summer rotation. Thankfully, Anglo-Italian has cracked the code by making its latest from a linen-cotton blend in an open-weave “rice stitch” that guarantees easy air flow.
Brooks Brothers Regular-Fit Italian Wool-Silk-Linen Hopsack Sport Coat
If you aren’t yet hip to the charms of a WSL (wool, silk, linen) jacket, allow Brooks Brothers to make the introduction. Its hopsack blazer is made from a lightweight blend of the three aforementioned fibers, lending it structure, texture and breathability in equal measure.
Jorge Adeler Rose Gold Ancient King Phillip I Coin Cufflinks
With crypto markets taking it on the chin, what’s left as a hedge against depreciating currency? Perhaps these authenticated ancient coins minted for a Macedonian monarch and encased in a set of 18-karat rose gold cuff links.
