Damn whatever the calendar says, we’ve sailed passed Memorial Day and all signs point to summer. To that end, now’s a perfectly acceptable time to pull out crochet-knit tees from Our Legacy, unconstructed wool-silk-linen blazers by Canali and a cheekily illustrated pair of swim trunks produced by Sunspel and the artist David Shrigley. Also on the list: Loro Piana polos treated with aloe vera, Mr. Slowboy’s impressionistic take on the Baracuta G9 and passport covers from Ettinger that are nigh-impossible to miss.
Stepney Workers Club Dellow S-Strike Ripstop Sneakers
We like a low-top canvas sneaker as much as the next guy, but we applaud Stepney Workers Club for adapting the style to tear-resistant ripstop nylon. Match it to cut-off denim or wide-leg khakis to make the most of its skater appeal.
Drake’s Cotton Herringbone Fatigue Trouser
Those pants with oversized, squared-off pockets in front and twin patch-flap pockets at the back that you keep seeing everywhere? They’re called fatigues, and Drake’s has a top-notch iteration made from Italian herringbone cotton and reinforced by copper rivets.
One of These Days Best of the Best T-shirt
Why does this domestically made, vintage-washed T-shirt depict two galloping cowboys between the text “World Series Champions”? Because America, that’s why.
Vince DM01 the Straight Jeans
For his return to the skies in Top Gun: Maverick, Tom Cruise consulted with Vince to create his ideal pair of jeans. We’ve got to give it to Cruise—the cut, wash and Italian-milled fabric with a hint of stretch make for a pretty perfect pair of off-duty denim. Combine with aviators for maximum effect.
Loro Piana André Linen Polo Shirt
Turns out that aloe vera does more than just soothe sunburns. In this case, Loro Piana has applied it to a linen polo shirt to achieve a crease-resistant finish.
Todd Snyder Nomad Boot
Most boots tend to take the summer off, but that’s just when desert boots hit their stride. Fulfill your Steve McQueen-inspired ambitions with this classically made pair from Todd Snyder, which matches an Italian calf suede upper and a substantial rubber crepe sole.
Canali Wool Silk and Linen Balance Shacket
This wholly deconstructed Canali blazer benefits from a bio-ceramic mineral treatment, which according to the brand, will reflect body heat back onto the skin to promote relaxation and well-being. We haven’t had the opportunity to test this claim first-hand, but we can report that it’s an awfully nice-looking jacket in an airy blend of wool, silk and linen.
Sunspel x David Shrigley Swimshort
Cheeky English artist David Shrigley has loaned his talents to Sunspel in a new collaboration, which sees the label’s swim trunks marked by a very Shringley-esque motif of clouds and suns.
Maison Margiela Contrast-Trim Backpack
It’s a shame that school is out just as Maison Margiela introduces this classic cotton backpack accented by leather straps and contrast trim. Then again, we’re sure you can fill it with more interesting contents than textbooks and planners.
Our Legacy Rope Weave Box T-Shirt
We aren’t against mesh t-shirts per se—we just believe that their utility is highly limited. If you’re after an open-weave shirt with more versatility, consider this crochet-knit cotton tee from Our Legacy with a boxy fit and dropped shoulders.
Greg Lauren Plaid Stitchwork Boxy Sport Shirt
If you’re into the whole madras patchwork thing but want to look like you listen to Municipal Waste rather than Vampire Weekend, consider this stitched-together plaid shirt from Greg Lauren. The irregularity and lived-in quality of its panels isn’t a design trick—in this case, the shirt has been quilted together from actual fabric scraps.
Ettinger Sterling Passport Case
Do you remember the time you lost your Ettinger passport case? Of course you don’t, because the suede-lined leather case comes in shades of red, turquoise, purple and orange that practically leap out of a gray TSA bin. We dare you to leave them behind.
Baracuta Cotton Print G9 Mr Slowboy
Everyone’s favorite menswear illustrator has linked up with Baracuta to provide a painterly take on its iconic G9. In this instance, the jacket is marked by artful “splotches” on its exterior and features a self-portrait sketch of the artist on its lining.
Paul Smith Robe
Paul Smith has applied its iconic color palette to this belted robe made from heavyweight French terrycloth. Perfect for strutting around the pool—and not bad for answering emails, either.
Crockett & Jones Cavendish 3 Whisky Hatch Grain Cordovan
To commemorate the 25th anniversary of its Jermyn Street store in London, C&J has released a special edition of its Cavendish 3 tassel loafer in an embossed, whisky-colored cordovan leather. Each pair comes with its own lasted shoe trees stained a dashing shade of racing green.
