An essential white tee to head into Memorial Day weekend.
Right, then: We’re just a few days away from the first unofficial weekend of summer, Memorial Day weekend. Things are surely going to look a little different this year than in years past — there’s no travel, no major BBQ’s, no huge outdoor concerts, for one. And yet, as has been the theme in past weeks on the blog, you still need to ensure you’re well-stocked with summer style essentials aplenty. Today’s edition of The List has you more than covered, with staple pieces like the best men’s T-shirt for summer, the coolest summer shorts, and of course, classic summer sneakers. Start with the Buck Mason Slub Curved Hem Tee below (perhaps the best white T-shirt for guys), then find the rest of your new favorite summer gear picks below. Heck, some of these summer style staples are so great, you might recognize them from other editions of The List — and that’s totally OK in my book. More importantly, have fun, stay safe, and perhaps crack a cold beer in the safety of your own home or backyard to celebrate.
Buck Mason Slub Curved Hem Tee — $35
A crisp and classic white T-shirt — an all-American style staple.
Yes indeed, we’ve talked about this stylish summer T-shirt a great deal on the blog in the past few weeks, but with good reason. From the quality construction to the spot-on fit (in my experience), the Buck Mason Slub Curved Hem Tee is one of the best men’s tees to buy right now, possibly in more than one color for standout Memorial Day weekend style at home. Heck, you can never go wrong with a classic white T-shirt.

Looking at all of this gear and all of the potential for adventures at home (or in a park, or out on the trails) is enough to make anyone crave coffee, right? What if you’ve got to get out the door in a hurry, though? That’s where Jot Ultra Coffee
