The building blocks of a guy’s summer wardrobe should include reliable staples, no doubt about it, and some welcome changes of pace, too — take the best men’s short-sleeve shirts, for instance.

The organic cotton is washed for a textured look and feel, and this stylish short-sleeve shirt also boasts a textured striped design.

See Now, Buy Now: The Taylor Stitch x Huckberry Long Haul Jacket Is Your New Spring Go-To

Best men's denim jacket for spring.

There are some menswear partnerships that just make so much sense, you almost don’t have to think about ’em. Like the way that Todd Snyder teams up with Champion to update rugged style staples, or the way that Huckberry and Taylor Stitch have partnered on your new favorite denim jacket for spring and summer. It could be one of the coolest men’s jackets of the moment, in fact, and it perfectly merges everything you love about the two San Francisco brands, including an old-school, rugged appeal that’s still fresh and modern.

The jacket in question is an update of the Taylor Stitch Long Haul Jacket, a longtime favorite of mine here on the blog, and it plays off all the hallmarks you expect from that silhouette. The fit is clean and hits above the waist, with relatively slim sleeves and high armholes for a surprisingly tailored denim jacket. Of course, those are but a few of the touches that make it one of the best jackets for men at the moment.

The incredibly cool Huckberry x Taylor Stitch Long Haul Jacket is made from soft organic cotton denim, all the better for a soft fit that only gets better with time the more you wear it. This rugged denim jacket has also been washed for a vintage look and feel, but again, it’s only going to get better with age. It already looks like you’ve had it for years, which makes this one a nice change of pace against more polished Taylor Stitch chinos, for instance. The Huckberry x Taylor Stitch Long Haul Jacket also boasts eye-catching, nicely detailed antique copper YKK donut buttons and rivets, plus zig-zag stitching under the collar and along the front placket for added durability.

Taken altogether, both the details big and small make the Huckberry x Taylor Stitch Long Haul Jacket one worth owning and wearing as often as possible this spring and summer. It gets all the better when you team your new favorite denim jacket with, say, a Taylor Stitch merino tee for go-anywhere, laidback-yet-cool style. Regardless of how many lightweight jackets you’ve got close at hand, the Huckberry x Taylor Stitch Long Haul Jacket is one of the coolest to buy right now — guaranteed.

See Now, Buy Now: The Taylor Stitch Merino Tee is the Best Men’s Tee to Wear As It Warms Up

Best merino T-shirt for men.

When done right, as it turns out, the best men’s basics are actually so much more than basic — this, I hope you know if you read this blog on the regular. Perhaps reading this site over the years has even turned you into a fan of venerable San Fran retailer Taylor Stitch, one of my favorite menswear brands and a company that excels at turning the basics into, well, so much more than basic. Take the Taylor Stitch Merino Tee you see above. Like the different-than-ordinary workwear style of the Taylor Stitch Ojai Jacket, or the uncommonly rugged shawl cardigan sweater from the brand, this merino T-shirt is so much more than meets the eye.

Merino in and of itself is a standout fabric to have in your wardrobe, especially in layers close to the skin — merino wicks away moisture, fights odor and bacteria and generally feels comfortable as heck. And over the years, that’s been my experience with pieces like the Taylor Stitch Merino Tee. I hope you’ll agree, but take a look for yourself below as we keep things rolling.

The brand also stocks heavier tees made from more substantial cotton-blend fabrics (like the Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Tee), but as a base layer for commuting, hiking, grabbing beers or beating the heat in a shady park, the Taylor Stitch Merino Tee also excels as one of the best T-shirts for men — period.

Best T-shirts for men.

To get technical, the magic in this stylish merino T-shirt comes from the superfine 18.5-micron mercerized Merino wool, blended with Lycra for stretch. Without getting too technical, though, the mercerization process makes the Taylor Stitch Merino Tee super-soft, and it helps that the fabric has a nice, visually interesting texture. When you’re wearing the Taylor Stitch Merino Tee, it looks like a T-shirt made to be worn on its own — not an undershirt, for instance. For as rugged and essential as the Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag line of knitwear can be, the Taylor Stitch Merino Tee is another standout option to add to your basics drawer.

It’s also helpful that the Taylor Stitch Merino Tee comes in a range of neutral colors, since this T-shirt is so soft and moisture-wicking, you’ll be able to wear it repeatedly (provided it’s not overused as a workout tee, for instance). The Heather Grey color of the Taylor Stitch Merino Tee pairs well with plenty of style moves in your spring wardrobe, be it olive chinos and your favorite chukka boots or khaki shorts and canvas sneakers.

Wear it casually with light wash jeans and a stylish military jacket, or take it for a spin beneath an ultra-lightweight, unlined blazer at the office. You’ll find plenty of ways to wear a tee as comfortable as the Taylor Stitch Merino Tee, and your wardrobe is all the better for it. Keep in mind it’s much pricier than a pack of cotton tees (the Taylor Stitch Merino Tee will set you back $68), but once you try this thing on, it becomes all the more worth it.
