Take a Break from Khakis

Aether Caribou Pin Stripe Short

Aether has built a name largely on the shoulders of their high-end outerwear, which unlike many other brands in the space, blends urban approved style with rugged outdoor durability. Recently the company has expanded their line to include more everyday items that still feature the brand’s trademark clean looks and cuts. Unfortunately these more casual items still retain the high prices of the brand’s specialized gear, but it’s to be somewhat expected given the company’s position in the higher end luxury market. Cost issues aside, these Caribou Pin Stripe Shorts ($145) are great looking largely because they mimic the classic summer sentiment only seeker sucker can have without actually going to Colonel Sanders extremes. Made from woven brushed Italian yarn, details like a dark chambray lining inside the waist and pockets let you know these bad boys are different from imitations offered by brands like Gap, Banana Republic, and Uniqlo. Whether that’s enough to justify their premium price is a conversation between you and your wallet. We are certainly smitten though.
