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!
Just as you would expect, Taylor Stitch delivers on the season’s must-have short-sleeve shirt. Echoing the fit of the iconic Taylor Stitch California Shirt but in a short-sleeve cut, this classic short-sleeve shirt is a new essential from the TS brand, made with breezy fabric that’ll keep you comfortable for more than a few rounds at your favorite brewery. It’s also made with an organic cotton blend and would wear nicely with, yes, Taylor Stitch chinos. Perfection.
Portuguese Flannel Linen Shirt — $115
Linen shirting exudes laidback cool — and the best linen shirts, like this handsome, refined-yet-easygoing number from Portuguese Flannel, can even be worn underneath a classic khaki suit this spring and summer.
While you might associate spring with light wash denim — which is perfectly fine! — the Levi’s Made & Crafted line is worth adding to your consideration set. That’s especially true given that these indigo jeans are an update to the classic Levi’s 501 Jeans.
SYMBOL Audio Unison 52″ Record Stand — $3,695
OK, bear with me here. Maybe it’s the fact that I recently got a new record player, maybe it’s the fact that I’m coveting a unique way to store records … but the SYMBOL Audio Unison 52″ Record Stand is simply exquisite, the ultimate home audio upgrade if ever there was one.
Vessi Footwear Waterproof Knit Sneakers — $129
If the name of the game is stylish spring sneakers — and it is — then the Vessi Footwear Waterproof Knit Sneakers are the way to go. Light as air and functional to boot, they’re the perfect travel sneakers this season.
Traveler Guitar Camper CS-10 Guitar — $254
While not what you might consider a traditional menswear pick, the aptly named Camper Guitar from Traveler Guitar is a heck of a neat camping essential to bring along on your next trip — and even if you can’t play, I guarantee someone else in your group can.
Pakt Pakt One 35-Liter Travel Bag — $325
When it comes to your everyday carry essentials, nothing but the best will do. And the Pakt Pakt One Travel Bag, although a little more minimal than the gear I feature on my Instagram, could just be your new go-to travel bag.
MWC Watches G-10 Watch — $172.98
Fourlaps Relay Track Pants — $74.98
As we start a new season, I’d wager you’re going to want to get outside more — the comfortable, mobile Fourlaps Relay Track Pants (also available via Fourlaps.com) are the way to go. See, you can find functional and stylish sweatpants if you look long enough.
Proof 72-Hour Merino Long-Sleeve Henley — $98
We’re moving our way through spring, and that means you can expect blustery days and breezy nights. This stylish long-sleeve henley from Proof should suit you well for travel and a spring bar crawl alike.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay H4 Wireless Headphones — $300
Ekster Parliament Minimal Wallet + Tracker Card — $99.98
Proof Nova Series Insulated Vest — $73.98
If layering up with a vest is more apt to make you think of “Back to the Future” than anything else, think again — the Proof Nova Series Insulated Vest is the stylish spring layer you need right now. Wear it over a denim jacket if you wish (wink, wink).
Portuguese Flannel Pop Brick Shirt — $61.98
We’re back again with another highly stylish spring shirt from Portuguese Flannel — the seriously cool Pop Brick Shirt, to be more specific. Wear this printed short-sleeve shirt with light wash jeans and leather loafers to steal the show at your next spring backyard BBQ.
Alright, we’re all squared away with today’s edition of The List. Did any of the above gear picks catch your eye? If you want a functional spring layer, you can’t go wrong with the Proof Nova Series Insulated Vest. If you want a durable spring timepiece, you can’t go wrong with the MWC Watches G-10 Watch. And if you want to splurge a LOT? Well, you can’t go wrong with the envy-inducing SYMBOL Audio Unison 52″ Record Stand. As always, thanks for reading!
