Five Panel Hats
with the “Beauty in the Wild” collection from Profound Aesthetic. These are all styles that are so wearable and simply awesome. It’s all about pieces that ladies can steal from the guys, and also keep you feeling young without trying to hard. Which is exactly what the line of five panel hats, snapbacks, tank tops, graphic tees, polos, and bracelets does.

Converse x Missoni
does another collaboration, and this time it is with Missoni. It might take someone with original style to pull these off, but if you happen to be one of those guys – pat yourself on the back and head to Trés Bien Shop to find this statement sneaker.

The Penny Swim Stripe Pocket Tee
pieces for the guys at Penny Stock Clothing. Any of the tanks, tees or comfy pants they offer would make nice companions to espadrilles or sneakers. Styles pretty much any guy can wear, and the prices are just right.
The Spring Clean Pant

Japanese DECO clay, these orchid lapel pins from Vanda Fine Clothing are something special for the guys. As a belated birthday gift (I totally slacked this year!) I plan to get one for Nick. He loves to get dressed up and this is a little something that will make him feel extra snappy when he does.

Pelican Hook Belt
that caught my eye while browsing Svpply. The Pelican Hook Belt is from one of my favorite men’s shops Sir Jack’s. It’s handcrafted in the USA and has a solid brass hook closure. An interesting accessory that can work with a fine pair of pants or a casual pair of jeans – I like its versatility.

Norse Projects Solid Flat Cap
count on Norse Projects to deliver something cool, as you can see this time from their caps. They get many mentions here, so it’s no surprise that once again we’re liking something from them. These hats are an easy accessory, and can be found at The Woodlands, a great men’s shop you’ll want on your radar.

Batten Sportswear Packable Anorak
collection from Batten Sportswear. Designer Shinya Hasegawa creates functional, but far from ordinary clothing. With refined pieces like anoraks, parkas, tees, daypacks and board shorts the collection speaks to guys who like the outdoors. Batten Sportswear is stocked at one of our favorite shops for guys End.

Veja Mediterranée Suede Shoe
Brazil, the Veja Mediterranée is one part boat shoe and another part sneaker. Available in geranium, camel or navy, and the soles come from rubber trees that can be found in the Amazonian Rainforest. Perfect for Spring days that don’t seem to far off. We like what Veja is doing, and think you will too.
Twill Tartan Workshirt
Duck Canvas Chinos
Crossgrain Terry Crew
Left Field. The whole collection seems very comfortable, and is made with high-quality fabric. I was definitely devoted to my champion sweatshirt back in the day, so after reading that the Heavy Loop Terry Crossgrain Crew was inspired by one (albeit ones from the 1950’s), it made me a bit nostalgic. Left field has many other great pieces that are not so formal, but still very versatile. All of the garments are American made and available here.

Trés Bien Shop
said it before and we’ll say it again, Trés Bien Shop is a standout, and a very cool store based out of Sweden. Not to mention, they’ve also got an online component as well as a must read blog. It’s a place to go for the guy who wants to develop a more refined style, and for the girl who wants to steal her boyfriends clothes. They offer brands and designers like Our Legacy, Beams Plus, Yuketen, Mark McNairy and countless more. And if I had the time, I could spend a lot of it here just reading about the designers they feature. Since this is the biggest shopping weekend of the year, no better place to start then here.
