Stylish warm-weather must-haves that would last you beyond August
The Light-as-Feather Jean (Above)
It’s true that your sweats and joggers take the cake when it comes to comfort, but it’s not ideal to wear them when you’re meeting with a client or going out on a date. When showing a polished image is necessary, reach for a pair of these navy pants. Made of eucalyptus-derived Tencel fabric, the No Sweat Pant combines cotton’s breathability and Spandex’s stretch, fashioned into a slim-fitting number that’s flattering to most guys.
No Sweat Pant Slim, $129. Worn with Vesper Polo, $68; Fisher Boater, $130; Phantom Ti, $260
The Sailor Tee
You can’t go wrong with the timeless appeal of a marinière. This yarn-dyed T-shirt is made of 55 percent Hemp and 45 percent organic cotton from globally sourced materials. It’s great worn with white bottoms for the rest of the summer, and once Labor Day rolls by, swap for dark denims or even black moto-style pants.
Stripe Jung Pocket Tee, $78. Worn with ABC Pant, $128; Solstice, $90
The Sweat-Wicking Performance Top
Working on a fit body should be a year-long endeavor, instead of the three months when you can show off the results of your hard work. This long-sleeved merino T-shirt wicks away moisture and is a natural anti-microbial that can be worn by itself or layered with a hoodie during the cold months.
Long Sleeve Merino, $78. Worn with Banks Short, $68; Spinject, $110
The Colored Pants
Khakis, despite their well-earned reputation as a summer workday staple, hardly exhibits the same versatility once you’re out and ready to play. These slim-fit pants are just what your after-work wardrobe needs. Pair them with a print tee to up its whimsy, or ground it down with a black or dark gray shirt.
Poplin Pant, $79.95. Worn with 100% Hemp Moonshadow Tee, $160
The City Shoe
Built for long walks without making your feet cry, these shoes are hand-made from buffalo leather and a durable rubber sole, by artisans who are paid a living wage. It needs to be broken in—so don’t take it straight from the box to your carry-on luggage. Don’t worry, once the shoe molds to your feet (and it doesn’t take very long), it would feel as if you’re not wearing anything.
City Shoe, $145. Worn with Beckmen Long-Sleeve Shirt, $79; No Sweat Pant Slim, $129
The All-Purpose Shorts
These shorts have an anti-odor liner and quick-dry technology, allowing them to roll with whatever athletic activity you happen to engage in: Yoga, pick-up hoops with the boys, or even just couch-surfing.
Kore Short, $68. Worn w/ 5 Year Basic Tank, $48; Movement Hoodie, $118; Hōkūle‘a Kia, $125
