Old Navy Built-In Flex Linen-Blend Blazer for Men – $65 ($79.99)
Please please please don’t be chopped/short in the tail with functioning sleeve cuff buttons. That’s a deal breaker combo (looking chopped/can’t tailor the sleeves easily) for many of us. 54% linen, 44% cotton, 2% spandex. Totally unlined in the back. Lots of potential here. Looks great with dark wash denim. Should look terrific with off-white or pale gray chinos in the summer.
Grant Stone Diesel Boot in Coffee Suede – $280
More of a spring vibe here compared to their standard Diesel boots. Charles F. Stead Calf Suede upper. Vibram wedge sole. Goodyear welted. Word is they run about a half size large.
Rhone Delta Pique Performance Hidden Button Down Collar Polos – $198 / 3 pack ($264)
Early contender for polos of the year. Performance Pique fabric is cool, crisp, breathes, and wicks. Hidden button down collar underneath the points keeps things in line and prevents curling/pancaking out. Normally $88 a pop, which is steep, but if you buy three that drops them to $66 per. Still spendy, but worth it if you love both performance polos AND the button down collar thing. Leans more athletic in fit. A size medium fits my 5’10″190 lb frame pretty close to perfect. Huge thanks to our man Adam for the tip on these.
Mido Ocean Star Automatic Rubber Strap Watch, 42.5mm – $990
Was just price matched at Nordstrom to under $800. Obviously not cheap. A bit of flash (although not yellow gold flash, Rose gold flash is much more subtle). Rose gold PVD coating. Sporty rubber strap. That thing is a looker. Swiss made.
J. Crew Wallace & Barnes Duck Canvas Utility Chore Jacket – $168
First thought: That looks perfect for spring. Second thought: That’s gonna get so dirty so fast. Heavy duty duck canvas that promises to break in/mold to your frame and adapt to your body over time. And J. Crew’s Wallace & Barnes line really does feel like an upgrade. If you’re into the Americana Workwear thing, W&B really does a nice, reasonably priced job.
BONUS adidas Stan Smith Kermit – $110
Stan Smiths + the world’s most famous, kindest, smartest frog? Hi ho yes please. Now where are my Pepe the King Prawn Tiro Track Pants?
