The List: This is All the Best New Menswear To Shop For Summer Right Now

Kick back in style with the best summer gear — including these pants.

We’re back at it again with another edition of The List, my weekly roundup of the best men’s gear and menswear on the market. As one would expect, we’re focused today on plentiful summer style essentials, the kind of pieces that can help you navigate the strange times we live in — and do so in style, of course. We’ll dive into picks that  could work as last-minute Father’s Day gifts, and we’ll also talk about some of the best men’s pants for summer (because you’ve got to wear something to work from home). Also on my list? Essentials like the very best men’s sunglasses and one of the best men’s henleys. OK, can’t wait to get started? Neither can I. (And to see what I’m rocking this summer, head on over to my Instagram).
