Eco-Fashion Menswear: Enjoy the Sights

Travel is one of the major highlights this season, and there’s no shortage of sustainable gear to tag along with your eco-minded vacation. If you’re the throw-everything-in-one-bag kind of guy, you’ll appreciate Nau’s 100 percent organic cotton Fluent Traveler weekender. Prefer to head outdoors and view and photograph wildlife? Tilley’s safari-inspired hemp hats are resistant to salt water, has UV protection, and are breathable, ensuring you’ll have a great time admiring towering giraffes.

Time to break out of the dreary blacks, grays, and blues that defined many a guy’s wardrobe for months: Spring is the perfect time to experiment with color. Follow the color of your iris if you’re unsure of what suits you best.

Checkmate

Their flannel counterparts kept you warm during winter, now let a lightweight plaid (or its other, often-confused flavors: gingham, tartan, and check) shirt be your go-to garment for casual outings. Whether worn over a plain tee or by itself, this 100 percent organic cotton shirt from Topo Ranch looks great while you’re having water ice at the neighborhood shop.

T for 2

Humble as it may be, no guy’s closet is complete without a few T-shirts. Think of them as the canvas for many outfits: With a hoodie they’re meant for a casual stroll, with a blazer they dress you up for a tapas-themed date.

Flip flops have become a staple. We take them along to the beach, the locker room, our backyards during informal barbecues, and keep a pair or two just for lounging at home. These Autonomie Project flip flops are 100 percent natural and use fairly traded FSC-certified rubber.
