The List: Here are the Best New Gear Picks to Buy For the Month Ahead

We’re stepping fully into spring today with Taylor Stitch — and plenty of other men’s style essentials, of course.

It’s hard to believe that we’re into April already — how wild is that!? It’s fitting, then, that we’re telling you all about the best new men’s gear for the season today. To wit: We’ve got gear picks from some of my favorite brands, like Taylor Stitch (as seen above), and gear picks from top online sites, like Huckberry, too. You need a one-stop shop of sorts to revamp and refresh your men’s style essentials (and home goods, and camping gear), and that’s what this edition of The List sets out to do. Cheers!
