Finally, a casual technical tee

Sport Science Smarter Heather T-shirt

Yeah yeah, another technical t-shirt. Do we really need another wicking, breathable tee? If it’s from Sport Science ($22), the answer is yes. And here’s why. While this shirt does a fine job of pulling sweat off the skin to keep you cool but not clammy, that’s not what makes it special. No, what we…

Well-tailored rights

J. Hilburn Tailored Clothing

Inalienable rights: life, liberty and the pursuit of tailored clothing. Thankfully, there are an ever-growing legion of off-the-rack fighters who hold the self-evident truths. Admittedly, former Wall Street warriors and co-founders Hil Davis and Veeral Rathod aren’t exactly the founding fathers of affordable tailored clothing, but using savvy business practices, fabrics sourced from the same…

Even if your bear trap grip on the urban-woodsman look is as unrelenting as the next style-maven, use this Spring as a reason to ratchet things down a notch.

Heller’s Cafe by Warehouse Sturdy Oak Workshirt at J.Crew

Just don’t try that with the new Heller’s Cafe by Warehouse Sturdy Oak Workshirt ($335) sold…

With classic Americana showing no sign of stepping down from its post as the king of trends (cases in point: Handsome American Footballs, J.Crew Denim Workshirt, and Coleman Steel Belted Cooler), there’s probably nothing more authentic than buying vintage.

Solid polos are a men’s wardrobe staple when cool weather disappears but their look can get stale quickly when rotated in a little too often. Stripes aren’t that big of a differentiation, but the ability to mix them in with your current shirts can leave you looking a lot less like a pack of Crayolas….
