The wheel is one of the most revolutionary inventions known to man. It’s kind of a big deal. So are these spring staples. And while we weren’t the first label to design ‘staple items’, we sure did a fine job perfecting them– just for you.
WHAT EVERY MAN NEEDS IN HIS CLOSET
Staples are pieces in your closet that you depend on every day (just like the wheel). And just to set the record straight, “staples” aren’t the same as “basics.” They are your go-to’s, your old reliables, the pieces that are at their best when you don’t even have to think about them.
Haven’t found yours yet? Don’t worry- our Spring 2017 line is here to help. Here’s a list of seasonal staples we highly suggest you add to your wardrobe immediately.
THE CLASSIC BUTTON DOWN
The first piece we recommend is a solid button down shirt, like our Silverlake Shirt. This classic shirt, in both long and short sleeve, is crafted from a breathable, garment-dyed cotton poplin. It is then finished with a handy chest pocket and our signature dual-wear sleeve cuffs. Pair it with a Flight Jacket on the weekend for a sharp, casual look, or with one of our crewneck sweaters for a more classy, in-office style. What sets the Silverlake apart is its versatility. Light and contemporary, it pairs easily with all your wardrobe favorites. Choose from an array of colors to add some variety to your weekly office shirt rotation.
A CREWNECK SWEATER
The classic crew makes for an unrivaled spring staple. Our Jordan Crew is a one-of-a-kind combination of multi-toned yarn and all-over novelty basket stitching. Together, these style standouts work to create an incredibly unique (and comfortable!) space-dyed effect. Its crew neck style lends itself to nearly any smart or casual outfit. Layer yours as the seasons shift– first over crisp shirts, then under heavier jackets.
A CASUAL TEE
Arguably the most humble piece of clothing in your closet, the tee is also one of the most essential. After existing unchanged for so long, we decided that your favorite tee could use an upgrade. That’s why we created the Pico Piqué Tee. Crafted from quality cotton piqué, a fabric usually reserved for polo shirts, this tee is a fresh and sophisticated take on a timeless classic. Even better? Due to our unique dyeing process, each tee features unique highs and lows - meaning that yours is guaranteed to be one-of-a-kind.
As we mentioned in our “New Year, Same You (Just Better)” post, never forget to layer. Wearing a henley or a mixed-fabric undershirt can give your outfit a slight edge compared to just a plain, basic white tee. Our Hachiko Henley is a great addition to any outfit. This styling technique allows you to stay warmer in cold weather and gives you the option to shed your outer layer in the heat, while still looking fresh and stylish.
Sick and tired of uncomfortable pants? We know your frustration, which is why we created a pant that is unsurpassable in both comfort and fit. We’ve reinvented the chino, so it’s no longer a style for just Jim Harbaugh and your Dad. Say hello to your new favorite pants – instant classics and easy to wear with practically anything. Our Weekend Chino has the perfect relaxed fit at the hip and thigh, with a slightly longer leg that’s tapered at the ankle, to stack just-right on your shoes for an effortless break. The result is a look that is contemporary, but not constricting – a total winner.
The necktie has been around basically forever–– actually, since the 17th century, to be exact. Chambray fabric is even older; it’s thought to have originated in France in 1595. So no, we didn’t invent the tie or the fabric– we just made them better. Sleek and subtle, our Griffith Tie is a slim piece in soft cotton chambray that will add class to your go-to office wear, or sophisticated style to your basic button-down. Now that’s history in the making.
And there you have it. These seasonal staples not only come in a variety of colors, but also provide comfort, versatility and style to all of your outfits. What more could you ask for? That said– go crazy, and have some fun with your spring wardrobe. Fashion doesn’t always have to be difficult; if you’re having a hard time, just remember that we’re always here to help.
