Do you like the way it feels to handle + wear?
Test “range of motion.” Everyday movement matters in these meat suits.
The way the fabric naturally falls/moves.
Too much? Too tight?
Needs to last. I don’t like shopping, I don’t like laundry.
Do you look like you? Gotta help people “get” you.
A slightly vintage looking cotton tee from Forty Five works well for me.
An actually soft everyday merino tee from Proof works better in travel due to the wrinkle resistance. Looks a little more formal too.
Western Rise X-Cotton Tee — a little bit thicker everyday tee, best in colder climates.
Technical and extremely lightweight “trailmaker” shirt from Seadon is my go to gym/activities tee.
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.
Anything from Topo – especially the “Dirt Shirt.”
Topo’s Dirt Shirt, excellent fall weather shirt.
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).
Western Rise Airlight Button Up — very lightweight, versatile, looks stylish and clean, slim fitted.
Ministry of Supply Button Ups — some of the lightest, svelt, most technically proficient business shirts.
Western Rise’s Versa Hat is crushable, stylish enough, comfy and minimal.
Livsn everyday pants in either the thicker canvas or the lighter eco trek; both are great.
Myles Tour Pant. Streeeetchy. But still looks pretty nice.
Western Rise Jogger. Lounge-able, but it’s a good tech fabric for cruising around town.
Oliver’s Shorts — I have lived in the “All Over” short. They had a good board short too.
Board shorts like these are what I work out in, play in, swim in, do everything in.

Western Rise’s ankle socks are great for that invisible look.
Exofficio Boxer Brief — been using these over 5 years now. Dry quick, no BS, keep my business happy.
Western Rise Airloft Jacket— my go to on the road. Insulated, temp regulating, wonderfully made.
