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.

Tezomeya Maru T-Shirt

In a world of solid-color tees, sometimes it’s good to mix it up. The Maru t-shirt from Tezomeya in Kyoto is an understated way to change up your wardrobe basics. The shirt is natural dyed with pomegranate skin and features a natural indigo dot in the center. It is dyed to order and may take up to three weeks to be finished. Though the price is on the high end for basics, Tezomeya offers a free re-dye service for customers wanting to enhance the color of their garment after years of washing and wearing.

The brand’s Downproof Collar Jacket is a great transitional layer, made from cotton with a simple silhouette. It features a rounded collar, two rounded hand pockets and an unadorned button closure, making it ideal for everyday wear during the work week.

You don’t need a $920 backpack when there are bags at one-tenth the price that are rugged, durable and good looking. When the pack in question, though, is a beautiful marriage between chocolate brown leather and rich blue suede, you have every right to indulge in such an extravagance. Such is Anderson’s latest backpack, which puts other luxe bags to shame with its two-toned, two-fabric construction.

Howlin’ Birth of the Cool Crew

Howlin’s Birth of the Cool shetland sweater is named after the iconic Miles Davis album from 1957 (and recorded from 1949–’50). It’s easy to imagine Miles wearing one himself, given his predilection for classic preppy style during the 1950s, though Howlin’s version is slimmer than the baggy J. Press Shaggy Dog sweaters popular during that era. Pair this camel-colored number with crisp chinos or denim, and you’ll look almost as cool as Miles. Almost.
