Men’s Clothing

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

Look 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:

Seadon Daymaker Shirt is our current everyday fav. Earth friendly, super comfy, doesn’t lose its shape.

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

Tees:

Seadon Daymaker Tee — earth friendly everyday tee that’s cozy and doesn’t lose its shape. Our current everyday rambler. They also make a great merino tee and long-sleeve

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

Topo Tech Tee — great for sweaty activities (cotton-poly exterior, mesh knit interior).

Long Sleeves:

Seadon Merino Long-Sleeve — high quality earth friendly merino, great fit and feel.

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 – especially 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.

Hats: 

Baseball Hat: Versa or Dayfarer – clean, modern, water proof, super comfy. (Video.)

Beanies: Western Rise make a good beanie, so does Topo. I also travel with a thin Smartwool Beanie

Western Rise’s Versa Hat is crushable, stylish enough, comfy and minimal.
