Tea’s Knees

By The Editors

Did you know that khakis, long before Jim Harbaugh tragically wore them as bloomers, were actually a form of camouflage in colonial India?

True story.

Bringing that heritage back: The Tea Label, an updated line of relaxed button-downs, wovens and, yes, contemporarized khakis, available now from the heritage line Bills Khakis.

The Tea Label — named after the dying process used by British soldiers in the 1840s — is a perfect base for your spring sojourns.

Think soft, textured cotton. Trim fits. Modest price point.  

In other words: great for boating. Casual office Fridays. More casual after-office anydays.

Some we like:

Plus colorful micro-ribbed polos, madras long-sleeves, sun-bleached twill pants, canvas shorts, slub cotton pullovers and more.

Time to get comfy.
