Spring—is that you? Yes, the warm-ish season is at last in sight, with all its promises of double-breasted cotton-linen blazers from Drake’s, knit polo shirts by Wales Bonner and suede slippers by Savas. And who knows, it may finally be the season that you experiment with a polka dot bandana from Massimo Alba or even a cotton-blend jumpsuit by Engineered Garments. The possibilities are endless, so jump right in.
Savas The Letta Slipper
There’s nothing dainty about the latest slipper from Savas, which is made from calf suede at a Tuscan boot workshop and finished with a ½” stacked leather heel. It’s named in honor of South African Jazz singer Letta Mbulu, whose 1967 hit “What’s Wrong With Groovin’” provides a sound rationale for picking up a pair today.
Drake’s Navy Cotton Linen Herringbone Games Blazer Mk. III
Drake’s has fired the first shot of the Spring 2023 Jacket Wars by releasing its Mk. III Games blazer in a cotton-linen herringbone. Distinguished by a double-breasted front, patch pockets with ticket and a ventless back, it navigates the casual/formal divide with considerable grace.
Todd Snyder Made in L.A. Homespun Slub Pocket T-Shirt in White
Perhaps no piece of clothing is more American than the white pocket tee—particularly this made-in-L.A. example from Todd Snyder. Stitched together from slub jersey and finished with a button-through chest pocket, it’ll prove a natural companion to that other icon of the American closet: blue jeans.
Ron Dorff Cotton Silk Pants With Piping
These Ron Dorff track pants look like everyday athletic wear but are made from a non-everyday (and luxurious) blend of cotton and silk. Keep it a secret, if you want.
Doppiaa Tencel Lyocell, Cotton and Linen-Blend Shirt
Tencel, lyocell, cotton and linen—Doppiaa hit “select all” when it came to the fabric composition of this spring-appropriate shirt. Although made from lightweight materials, workwear details like contrast stitching and flapped chest pockets give it a hard edge.
Engineered Garments Beige Racing Jumpsuit
If you’ve ever had the thought that “this is the season that I finally own a jumpsuit,” then this Engineered Garments piece is for you. Made from a lightweight cotton-blend fabric with a fit eased by a concealed drawstring waist, it’s an ideal starting place for the jumpsuit-curious.
Fortela x Sebago Loafer SEB01 Black
The unlikely bedfellows of vintage-obsessed Italian brand Fortela and traditional moccasin maker Sebago have joined hands to create a loafer marked with both brands’ DNA. The Italian-made SEB01 retains the classic silhouette of the latter’s Dan loafer, but swaps out the penny for a removable metal concho.
Aspesi Moleskin Blazer
A textural hand goes a long way in dressing down tailored clothing, and this Aspesi blazer’s velvety moleskin accomplishes the task with ease. Triple patch pockets only add to its laidback appeal.
Orlebar Brown Dark Sapphire/Sea Mist Bandana Mid-Length Swim Shorts
Male swimwear may be entering its baroque phase, as evidenced by these mid-length Orlebar Brown shorts marked by an intricate floral-pattern print designed in-house. As ever, a pair of nickel-effect side adjusters give them a tailored touch.
Maison Mihara Yasuhiro White Baker Canvas Low-Top Sneakers
No, it’s not that anyone left these Maison Mihara Yasuhiro low-tops out in the sun too long: their treaded rubber soles were designed to have an intentionally melty appearance. Lace them up to add a trippy touch to simple outfits like denim and a tee.
Wales Bonner Optimist Polo Shirt
The news doesn’t give us much reason for optimism these days—but this appropriately named piece from Wales Bonner does. The English designer’s Optimist polo strikes a sunny chord with its lightweight knit fabric and wide, colorful stripes.
Tod’s Leather Penny Loafers
Brushed leather and handstitched finishes give these Tod’s penny loafers a refined air, while their on-brand rubber soles make it clear that you’re anywhere but the office. A pair of drawstring linen trousers and a long-sleeved polo shirt feel like natural companions.
Polo Ralph Lauren Flag Cotton Rollneck Sweater
Ralph Lauren has boldly dialed the Americana setting up to 11 in the case of this garment-dyed cotton sweater. Aside from the designer’s favored flag motif, it also features a textured-knit pattern recalling Yankee quilts.
Massimo Alba Cashmere Silk Wool Bandana
Cashmere, silk and wool was used to fabricate this Massimo Alba bandana, which will pop between the points of a collared shirt worn open at the neck thanks to its polka dot pattern.
Brooks Brothers Cotton Pique Archive Stripe Polo Shirt
The crisp, minimal appearance of a white polo shirt is a thing of beauty. But that doesn’t mean it can’t benefit from the addition of a wide, multi-colored diagonal stripe, as this cotton pique piece from Brooks Brothers ably demonstrates.
