Oh, we're only in August? Sure feels like it's been a whole year. Well, this is really just an excuse for us to look back at all the best style releases to come out this year. From tees that raised a million bucks for the Black Lives Matter movement to fresh as hell sneakers and more, here are the releases we obsessed about (and still are obsessing about, if we're being honest).
Bode House Shoes
Emily Bode is ascending to menswear royalty fast and in these gorgeous house slippers.
Black Optical x Jacques Marie Mage
One of the most insane sunglasses to be released would come courtesy of Jacques Marie Mage (who else). Bison leather-wrapped sunglasses make this the filet mignon of sunglasses.
Rhude Desert Print Shirt
A long ways away from the usual palm-laden paradises of the typical Hawaiian shirts, Rhude's Marlboro-influenced line took the summer staple to the parched desert.
Schott x 3sixteen Chromexcel Horsehide Jackets
I'm not cool enough to rock a leather jacket, but this collab makes up for what I lack.
Viberg Herald Boot
Hark! The Herald Boot is Viberg's latest feat of cordwainery, a wholecut side-zip boot that has to be lasted by hand for several days.
South2 West8 Mesh Grocery Bag
Mesh has been one of the bigger trends recently. If you're too timid to jump into a mesh top, this tote bag was an easy way to hop into the trend. I say 'was' because, obviously, it's sold out.
Story Mfg. "Ready, Set, Slow!" Grateful Tee
Loads of tees came out this year, and this one stood out to tell us to slow down.
Beams x Crocs Fishing Sandals
Ugly shoe fans rise up. The likes of Chaco, Birkenstock and, more recently, the Merrell Water Moc have ascended to footwear royalty. This year, one of its own got fashion heads turning.
Sunnei Dreamy Shoe Collection
The '90s is here to stay. Sunnei's taken hold of the orthopedic-looking sneakers aesthetic and pulled it up to luxury heights.
Aime Leon Dore SS20 Lookbook
Prep never looked so sick.
Noah x Birdwell Board Short
Noah challenged Birdwell's tough swim trunks with a multi-colored paisley print and the result was one of the best shorts of 2020. Check out our interview with the two brands here.
JJJJound x New Balance 992
Explaining this with any detail would just turn into this meme. Just know that it's 100 percent true.
Arpenteur x Paraboot Safari Shoes
Fulfilling all your grandpa style endeavors.
Brain Dead x Blood Orange "We Are One" Tee
Levi's Vintage Clothing 1966 501 Japan
The first product of Levi's Vintage Clothing's move to Japan barely touched shelves before it was gone.
Drakes SS20 Collection
Didn't think dressing up would be something we'd desperately want to do this year.
Reese Cooper DIY Clothes
Hot shot menswear designer Reese Cooper came at this release with a hands-on approach. Except, the hands in question are yours.
18east x ALLCAPSTUDIO "Silence Is Violence" Tee
