Men’s Clothing

Shirts, pants and outerwear products worthy of getting rid of your old sh*t.

Your Best

5 categories for evaluating everyday clothing:

1

feel

Do you like the way it feels to handle + wear?

2

Movement

Test “range of motion.” Everyday movement matters in these meat suits.

3

Drape

The way the fabric naturally falls/moves.
Too much? Too tight?

4

Durability

Needs to last. I don’t like shopping, I don’t like laundry.

5

Aesthetic

Do you look like you? Gotta help people “get” you.

Everyday Shirts & Tops:

United by Blue Hemp Tee, solid everyday tee from a company cleaning oceans.

Wool & Prince make my current favorite everyday button-up.

Tees:

United by Blue Hemp Tee — love the feel of these.

Western Rise X-Cotton Tee — a little bit thicker, best in colder times.

Wool & Prince Merino Tee – Nice thickness, odor + wrinkle resistant. Merino is great.

Long Sleeves:

United by Blue Henley — cozy, simple, affordable.

Wool & Prince Merino Henley – can be used to kind of dress up an outfit. The material is real nice.

FOR WOOD CHOPPIN’:

Anything from Topo – I live in the “Dirt Shirt.”

Topo’s Dirt Shirt, excellent fall weather shirt.

For Zoom Calls:

Wool & Prince Merino Button Up – odor resistant, wrinkle resistant (for reals), easy to live in everyday, churches it up a little (makes you look nice).

Ministry of Supply Button Ups — some of the lightest, svelt, most technically proficient business shirts.

Western Rise Airlight Button Up very lightweight, versatile, looks stylish and clean, slim fitted.
