There’s something about warmer weather that grants permission to go a little gonzo. As evidence, consider a reversible madras balmacaan from Polo Ralph Lauren, Dirty Martini-inspired Vans made in conjunction with Todd Snyder and a Barbour Ashby lined with the Union Jack. But if your style whispers rather than shouts, we’ve got a rather subdued Hawaiian shirt from Orslow and a Varsity Headwear cap in plush microfiber. Carry on.
Rubato Firemans Jacket Beige
The stereotype of the sexy firefighter is further buttressed by this new release from Rubato, which is based on the design of a vintage fireman’s jacket. While the Swedish brand makes no claims about the non-flammability of the garment’s densely woven Japanese cotton, it is wind-resistant and water-repellent.
Todd Snyder x Vans Dirty Martini Slip-On 98 X
Sometime in the last year, the dirty martini went from the stuffy order of country club geezers to the hottest cocktail trend since the espresso martini. And now it’s the inspiration behind this unlikely collaboration between Todd Snyder and Vans, which sees the latter’s iconic slip-on rendered in olive suede.
Barbour Limited Edition Union Jack Ashby Wax Jacket
Feeling like a closet monarchist as the buzz around King Charles’s coronation grows? You may signal your support for the crown—discreetly—with this limited-edition Ashby jacket from Barbour, which is lined with the Union Jack.
4SDesigns Camp-Collar Chambray-Trimmed Cotton-Blend Bouclé-Tweed Shirt
Yes, the name “4SDesigns” is a way to signal that the label’s wares are intended to serve you year-round. That’s a lofty goal, but a camp collar shirt made from a cotton-blend bouclé tweed with chambray trimming might just be crazy enough to work.
Lemaire Pleated Relaxed Fit Pants
Relaxed-fitting pants and pleats: two things that were considered to be definite faux pas until quite recently. Now the once-derided trends have come together in the form of these loosely cut, heavily pleated pants from Lemaire in a lightweight silk blend.
Gitman Vintage Alexander Girard “Palio” Camp Shirt
It’s easy to feel desensitized to printed shirts around this time of year, but the “Palio” camp shirt from Gitman Vintage is impossible not to look at. It’s made from summer-weight cotton poplin in a print originally designed by Italian artist Alexander Girard to celebrate the colors of each Siena neighborhood that takes part in the city’s same-named horserace.
Billy Reid Court Jacquard Cardigan
If you asked an abstract modernist to paint their interpretation of a tennis court, you might end up with something like the design of this double-jacquard woven cardigan by Billy Reid. Made from a blend of cotton and nylon, it’s light enough to toss over your shoulders after a long afternoon on the court (or the couch).
Bode Beige Ship Appliqué Shorts
Let’s face it: linen-cotton shorts with elasticated waistbands are a dime-a-dozen this season. But linen-cotton shorts with elasticated waistbands and embroidered junks is the sort of thing that could only have come from Bode.
Polo Ralph Lauren Reversible Poplin-Madras Balmacaan Coat
A cotton madras balmacaan is the type of preppy madness that Polo Ralph Lauren specializes in. But it’s also… a lot, which is why it’s a plus that this lightweight piece reverses to beige stretch-poplin for when you’re feeling a bit madras-ed out.
One of These Days Wild Horses T-shirt Bone
Didn’t manage to score that perfectly obscure vintage T-shirt in time for warmer weather? Don’t fret. Just pick up the “Wild Horses” tee from One of These Days, which is brand-new but looks like it was unearthed from the coolest secondhand store in Bushwick that no one’s told you about yet.
Phineas Cole Cotton Printed Sport Jacket
Tropical, abstract prints aren’t the exclusive preserve of camp-collar shirts, as this cotton sport jacket from Phineas Cole ably demonstrates. It’s clearly in statement-piece territory, so consider making the rest of the look subdued—perhaps a light blue shirt, cream trousers and brown loafers.
Alex Mill Walker Popover in Chambray
Never doubt the power that a pocket has to completely upend a garment’s look. In this case, Alex Mill started with a conventional, if commendable, staple—the chambray popover shirt—and enlisted artist Alexander Calder to draft a pocket shape that’s seemingly inspired by the golden ratio.
Varsity Headwear Macchiato Brown Alcantara
Someday, soon, we will all stop using the phrase “quiet luxury.” But for the time being, we direct your attention to this Varsity Headwear cap made from Alcantara, a synthetic fabric with a velvety handle that’s often used for the interiors of luxury vehicles and yachts.
Orslow Black Floral Print Hawaiian Shirt
Great news for Goths: their penchant for black can be indulged in the tropics, thanks to this black-and-white Aloha shirt from Orslow. To complete the look, the Japanese-made shirt can be paired with solid black Bermuda shorts.
Isaia Men’s Plaid Overshirt
An airy blend of wool, silk and linen is increasingly favored for men’s spring and summer tailoring: so why wouldn’t the same fabric make sense for an overshirt? Isaia, thankfully, has taken notice of that oversight and made this overshirt from a WSL plaid accordingly.
