So … Today is officially The First Day of Spring.

But since it still feels like the 1,000th Day of Winter, let us suggest you start packing for warmer climes. To abet said esperienza primavera, we’ve made a little list of the items you’ll need.

Lucky for you, the perfect weekend bag and the perfect weekend gear can be found in one spot: the new and handsomely woody menswear depot Carson Street Clothiers, now open in Soho.

Your packing list:

One Mismo Adventurer bag – Heavy-duty canvas and leather blend from Denmark. Because full leather gets heavy, while this gets second looks.



One pair Orlebar Brown swim trunks – If it’s good enough for 007 in Skyfall, it’s good enough for you.



One pair Riviera leisure shoes – Aptly named and featuring a mesh top perfect for Côte d’Azur gallivanting.



Two Carson Street washed Oxfords – These artfully rumpled, house-brand button-downs work with everything from chinos to trunks.




One Inis Meáin washed linen knit henley – The perfect weight for a spring evening and more stylish than any sweater you own.




For the rest of your duffel’s contents, our gallery is right this way.

Looks like Papa’s got a brand new bag.
