Staff Picks: What Our Style Team Likes Right Now

Fashion is confusing.


Every single day, our style team filters through millions upon millions of style articles, clothing pieces, collection launches, brand parties, blogger fads, runway shows, fashion shoots, lookbooks and many, many more stimuli to stay on top of what’s hot in men’s fashion. In spite of all that noise, we’ll keep things simple here: just four things we’re into right now, updated each week.

Converse x Carhartt Chuck Taylor All Star 1970s


This collab All-Star is a strong pick for your daily trainer this summer. The canvas upper comes in an ever-so-seasonal off-white colorway, accented with gold eyelets. It’s a neutral shoe that you can wear all summer long. Break them in and scuff them up. Come September, these kicks will be a visual ledger of your summer adventures.

Beams Plus Batik Ivy Short


You can incorporate more patterns into your wardrobe this summer without looking like you’re a walking version of the Black Lodge from Twin Peaks. Take, for instance, these shorts from Beams Plus. The traditional batik pattern of yellows, tans and burnt oranges is set on a dark blue background. There’s a lot going on, but it remains relatively quiet. Pair with a solid-color earth-tone shirt and some neutral kicks (like the All-Stars above) for a winning ensemble.

Richard James Grandad-Collar Linen Shirt


Band collars ooze vintage swagger, and Richard James’ Grandad-Collar shirt is anything but fusty, despite the name. The retro design and breathable linen makes this your shirt for summer events where anything goes.

Blue Blue Japan Bassen Bandana


Getting dressed for a night out can be difficult during the dog days of summer. Unstructured jackets and linen overshirts are fine, but sometimes simplicity is the order of the evening — and the weather. Bandanas provide an easy solution because they don’t add extra layers when the heat feels oppressive, and Blue Blue Japan’s Bassen Bandana dresses up a polo or oxford without entering formal territory.
