Lululemon Metal Vent Tech Surge Long Sleeve T Review

via lululemon.com

Weekly Theme: Fall Workout Gear

Continuing up the body to the torso, we have this metal vent tech long sleeve from Lululemon. Lulu infused silver into the fabric, not to make it more expensive (though maybe) but to fight odor. Silver is naturally anti-bacterial, meaning this shirt won’t stink up your laundry basket like your 100% cotton shirts do post workout. This long sleeve was also designed with vents down the spine, on the sides, and around underarms meaning you keep dry while staying warmer than you would in your standard t-shirt.

Available on lululemon.com for $88

J.Crew Slub Cotton Henley Review

via factory.jcrew.com

via factory.jcrew.com

Labor Day has come and passed, marking the unofficial end of summer. With that comes the start of the snarky comment "don't you know you can't wear white after Labor Day?" Thanks Brittany, we get it.

In order to quell Brittany's sass we have collected a few items that aren't technically white, but close so you can yell at Brittany "It's not technically white Brit, so back off I look good!" To kick us off, an oatmeal colored slub cotton henley from J.crew. This will be a Fall standard as a stand alone top or in a layer scheme. Pair with browns and black and greens and blues, and most other colors because it's oatmeal, but can basically function as white, Brittany.

Take your peacocking to the beach and flamingo yourself all over the boardwalk with this 100% cotton party shirt. Make sure to check the fit guide to see whether you are slim or standard fit, and note the slim-fits have some tapering through the middle so if you have a bit of a pouch where you keep all your extra cookies, we'd suggest you go with the standard fit.

Think warm thoughts. Think warm thoughts. Think warm thoughts. Channel your inner Felix Leiter and rock an epic Hawaiian shirt to get your festivus on. There's nothing that will get you to your inner beach in the dead of winter like a 100% silk Hawaiian shirt and a corona. The best part about this shirt is that even though it's silk, you can still machine wash it and throw it in a low temperature tumble dry. So plan a themed party, grab some rum and cervezas, not to mention this shirt, and crank up the thermostat because the summer solstice is comin' early.

Smythson Ticking All the Boxes Panama Notebook

If you find yourself coming up with great ideas at odd times, are terrible with remembering lists, or can't seem to keep track of verbal invitations, then a pocket notebook is the thing to have. A Panama Notebook like this one from Smythson are great, and perfect for those still into the art of writing down notes by hand (which tends to improve data retention). While there are alternatives like those offered by field notes, these Panama notebooks are a bit more sturdy, due to their leather covers, meaning that will not fall apart after a month of it living in your back pocket. In terms of size, it's about the size of a medium stack of 3x5 cards which isn't too cumbersome for a pocket while still being worth the price tag.

Topman Blue Chambray Button-Up

via topman.com

via topman.com

Every guy needs at least one shirt that can transition well from work to play, and nothing does that like a good chambray (check the rhyme gents). This Blue chambray button-up from Topman is a great work shirt that can be an even better going out option with a simple untucking. This specific shirt is designed in Topman's muscle fit style, meaning its has a fairly steep taper, and higher cut arm holes at the shoulders to help show off all the work you've been putting in at the gym with your New Years Resolution. That being said, this style is definitely more for body types that are wider at the shoulders than the waist, so keep that in mind. You can wear this with your (hopefully dwindling) fleet of khakis, navy blue chino's (for some blue on blue love) or olive cords for a warm, comfortable look that is riddled with texture.

All Saints Torr Crew Neck T-Shirt

You know what's too much to spend on a pocket-T? $80. What's not too much, is half that, which this Torr T-shirt is currently available at thanks to a sale by All Saints. This Torr T-shirt is definitely more on the casual out-and-about side of the spectrum. And now, thanks to celebrities like Zayn and at least one of the Jonas brothers, detail rips and holes make you look like you belong in the lime light. This pocket-T is will fit a little loosely, as is intended, and will have a soft vintage cotton feel, as you should expect from a T-shirt that costs $80 MSRP. So grab it now, while its on sale, and pair it with some dark jeans, a peacoat, and some chukkas or combat boots to really channel the New York street style.

Flint and Tinder Moleskin Shirt Jacket

via Huckberry.com

via Huckberry.com

Instead of beating you over the head with flannel-based shirt options for all of Fall, we decided to mix it up a bit. Introducing the Moleskin Shirt Jacket from Flint and Tinder. This shirt jacket, or what we'll affectionately  call a shacket, is a heavy-duty cotton shirt that protects you from the elements while working out in the yard, going hiking, sitting by the campfire, or venturing into a new part of your city throughout Autumn. This shacket is 100% sourced and made in the good ol' US of A which is always worth a right swipe (get it? flint and TINDER) for us. This garment is really meant to be layered, so the sizes are a little big if you are used to a more slim fit, so take that into account when ordering. For the shorter gents out there, these sleeves will likely require a "cuff and go" type of action as they are a tad long. We suggest layering this over a lightly-colored t-shirt, and either tan chinos, or some reliable denim, and boots of your choice.

Everlane Heavyweight Tee

It's natural to get a little chunky as the weather begins to cool down. Your drive to go outside lessens, those cookies in the cookie jar start calling your name a little louder, and all of the delicious Fall beers begin to accumulate around the mid section. It happens to almost all of us. The good news is we aren't the only thing getting a little thicker. Everlane has just put out the Heavyweight Tee, a heavier cotton version of their classic t-shirts. These tees are super soft and are perfect for Fall. They have a little bit more body to them, just like us come December, keeping you and the pouch where you keep your extra cookies a bit warmer. We suggest pairing this with a solid pair of dark wash jeans or cords. It will also serve as a great base layer for when the highs are only hitting the lower 60s.

Club Monaco Vintage Floral Button Down

A lightly-colored floral shirt for Fall? Seriously? Yes, seriously. Rules are made to be broken, and while the official timeframe to wear white has passed, we say, if you are confident enough to do away with the rules, you are confident enough to rock this floral button down from Club Monaco. It's 100% cotton with buttoned collars (always a plus for us) and has a breast pocket, just in case. This casual yet flashy top will go great under a muted colored cardigan or bomber, and a nice pair of corduroys or maroon chinos.

Uniqlo Checkered Flannel

The temperatures are lowering, meaning it's time to start adding the warm layers back into the daily rotation. While there are many takes on the fall classic, this cheaper, yet just-as-soft option from Uniqlo is a bit of a steal compared to the price points of many other brands that are just as soft. This specific flannel has a button down collar helping it maintain its shape, which tends to be an issue for the shirts made of a softer cotton material. We suggest you layer this with a plain white T and a pair of jeans, and hey there Delilah you got yourself a classic American outfit good for a trek to the coffee shop or the casual house party.
