Brooks Brothers Blue Floral Print Shorts

via brooksbrothers.com

Like we've said before, floral is taking the men's fashion world by storm this year, and we like it. Not to over do it, these blue on blue floral print shorts from Brooks Brothers make a statement but without yelling it at you. What these shorts lack in brightness they make up in pattern design. These shorts have a 9" inseam, well-suited for those 5'8" and up, and have a little elastane in them so you can actually move around in them even though they fit slimmer on the leg than legacy BB shorts. As a heads up, these are button fly shorts, so if you're one of those guys that hates the European way of closing your pants, maybe steer clear of them. We suggest wearing a plain white or pale blue oxford shirt with these flower power pantaloons while taking root in a nice pair of brown leather loafers

via backcountry.com

If the weather so far in March is any indication of how April will go, you are going to need a good rain jacket. While this one isn't going over your suits, it is still important to keep yourself dry when meandering about on your off time during the rainy season in the eastern half of the US. This North Face Revolve Jacket is light weight, with a relaxed fit to go over your spring layers without scrunching them or allowing the tails to peak out of the bottom. The outside is 100% rain proof, which is the basis of what you need in a rain jacket (obviously). What The North Face does well, and is apparent in this jacket, is heat and sweat permeation. The polyester mesh lining wicks sweat away and the vent design keeps the interior of the jacket comfortable while you trek to the train station during a downpour. An essential for hiking in the spring, and a perfect light jacket to throw on when hitting the grocery store.

The subtlety of the loud pattern still draws the eye but doesn't go crazy making them more wearable. We suggest you wear these with a solid color top. Blue, white, or even a pastel red or yellow will go well with these puppies.

Saturdays NYC Bruce Dobby Short Sleeve Shirt

via saturdaysnyc.com

Pantone released the color of the year for 2017 a couple months back, and it's Greenery, an oddly bright shade of green, that most of the fashion industry is introducing as more of an olive or sage in their fashion lines. SaturdaysNYC has joined in, coming out with this button down short sleeve shirt in their own shade of sage. This shirt is a cotton-linen blend (65/35) perfect for spring, and fun in the sun if winter ever ends up letting go. The straight hem along the bottom means this shirt is not for tucking, so leave it out, let it flow and stay cool once you find your place of blissful heat. We suggest you wear this with khaki linen pants for the relaxed island look or dark colored chinos for a more out-in-the-city feel.

This Ragg Wool beanie from United by Blue is 100% virgin wool that is a bit rougher than its finely processed cousins. The thickness of the wool provides more warmth where other, more refined, wools like merino fall short. Since wool is naturally water resistant, it will fair well should you end up in the snow. I know what you're thinking, "thick wool sounds itchy" well it is, which is why they added an acrylic liner so your head only touches the soft stuff.

If you are one of the many gents who train with a barbell, whether it's Crossfit or just a full body workout with some power cleans, you know it can take a toll on what you wear.

Everlane Straight Fit Pant

via Everlane.com

via Everlane.com

Everlane's pants are usually a slimmer fit, but guys with tree trunks for legs found that even with the elastane integrated into the cotton, they were still just too tight of a cut. So, Everlane came out with these, a straight-leg version of their classic chino-style pant. They are also 98% cotton and 2% elastane like their slimmer predecessors and fall nicely on gents with thicker legs and butt.

One thing to note when buying online, the lengths lay a bit longer than they say (by about 2 inches) so if you a 30/32, you might want to go for a 30/30 instead. Also, a cool thing about Everlane, if you scroll to the bottom of their individual product pages you can see how much each product costs to make vs. how much they charge you for them... transparency = pretty cool.

Boden Turner Sweatshirt

Everyone has a sweatshirt they lounge in, like this one, but not all sweatshirts play well for both lounging and a layering. This Boden Turner Sweatshirt achieves this hard-to-reach limbo by combining comfortable cotton with a washed look with vintage jersey-style stitching that accentuates your shoulders. This sweatshirt is great for layering on the cooler days, but can also be worn by itself when hanging around the house. Another nice feature is the wider cuff at the bottom of the shirt that helps keep the sweatshirt from riding up. We suggest you wear it with a blue button-down and jeans for a relaxed yet thoughtful look.
