Every day, our team filters through hundreds 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.
Standard and Strange x TSPTR High Top Sneakers
“Canvas sneakers are staple footwear, but it’s nice to have a pair that differs from the ubiquitous Chucks or Old Skools. This ’50s-inspired sneaker — a collaborative release between Standard and Strange and TSPTR — is made in Kurume, Japan, by the John Lofgren footwear team. The design is elevated with double-needle stitching, heavy-duty eyelets, dense rubber outsoles and Fujikinbai canvas woven in Takashima. These definitely aren’t a one-season sneaker and they will only get more comfortable as you wear them. They’re a little pricier than the big brands, but the quality and materials are exponentially better.” — John Zientek
NN07 Domenico Tapered Twill Drawstring Trousers
“These comfortable but clean-cut pants will have you feeling relaxed while looking refined on weekends. They’re made from a soft twill textile and come in a dark olive green that tends to go with pretty much everything.” — Andrew Connor
Hobo Cordura Ripstop Backpack
“A great daypack doesn’t need a laundry list of features, just an easy-to-use design that will stand up to years of daily use. This bag from Hobo is made from lightweight Cordura ripstop fabric and features a zip main compartment, a laptop sleeve and an external zip pocket.” — John Zientek
Reigning Champ Midweight Terry Crewneck
“Reigning Champ’s midweight top comes packing all the details you’d want in a solid sweatshirt: flatlock seams, raglan sleeves, ribbed cuffs and a supple terry cotton construction. Though it’s ostensibly activewear, it’s polished enough to work as a day-to-day option.” — Andrew Connor
