25 Spring Style Essentials Every Guy Should Own

Everlane The Organic Cotton Crew

The Basic, Affordable White Tee

You’ve heard it time and time again — there is no better staple than a good white tee. That’s not to suggest that you have to drop a chunk of change, though. Everlane’s Organic Cotton Crew is woven with 100% premium organic cotton that gets softer over time and fits tastefully snug, just like James Dean would’ve wanted.

Buck Mason Carry-On Suit

The Anywhere and Everywhere Suit

If there’s one suit that can do it all — power meetings and wedding receptions, fancy dinners and first impressions — it’s the Carry-On Suit from Buck Mason. Cut from 5.5 oz. stretch cotton twill, it’s the perfect weight for spring (and summer, and fall), and the drab kahki color lends itself to an infinite variety of occasions.

Abercrombie & Fitch Pattern Button-Through Sweater Polo

The Warm-Weather Uniform

There’s no style we’d rather rock when the weather’s fair than the sweater polo, for its endless ’70s charm and comfortable cotton weave. Abercrombie & Fitch nails the swolo in a variety of hues, like this geometrically patterned number above, and with its $55 price point, it’s a no-brainer spring essential.

Todd Snyder The Nomad Boot

The Trusted Lightweight Boot

Chukkas are a jack of all trades. They can dress down a suit, dress up some chinos, and they even play nicely with jeans. No wonder so many guys (Obama and Bourdain, to name a few) swear by them. Todd Snyder’s take — and first foray into footwear — is the perfect spring investment thanks to some supple, buttery suede and 12mm rubber soles.

Faherty Stretch Oxford Shirt 2.0

The Boardroom-To-Bar Oxford

If you’re gonna buy one shirt, make it Faherty’s heathered yarned Stretch Oxford. The touch of stretch and a glove-like fit make it the best versatile oxford on the market.

 Vuori Kore Short

The Hangout-Approved Athletic Shorts

InsideHook and Harry Styles approved.

Garrett Leight Doc Sunglasses

The Designer Shades

Yes, a cheap pair of sunglasses will technically work, but as we’ve explained, a good pair of designer glasses are worth every penny. Take these Garrett Leight joints; polarized, timeless, and sexy as hell.

Percival Waterproof Sherlock Jacket

The Office-Friendly Outerwear

We’re not saying that Percival’s Sherlock is not not causal, but we’re not not saying that, either. The mac-esque layer looks just as good with a knit and jeans as it does your workday digs, with the added benefit of keeping you dry regardless.

Outerknown The Blanket Shirt

The In-Between Shacket

Too cold for a tee, but too warm for a jacket? Has Outerknown got the thing for you. The best-selling Blanket Shirt is a perennial shacket list topper, and for good reason.

Patagonia Black Hole Gear Tote

The Personal U-Haul

It’s 2023 — you should own at least one good tote. Luckily Patagonia’s brand-new Black Hole addition means that you can crate all your stuff around no problemo.

Francis Vegan Leather Jacket

The Kickass Leather Blazer

James Dean in “Rebel Without a Cause”. Tom Cruise in “Top Gun”. Hell, Brad Pitt in “Fight Club”. It just does not get more badass than a leather jacket, especially one that looks straight out of the ’70s.

Patagonia Torrentshell 3L Rain Jacket

The Must-Have Rain Jacket

The self-explanatory, somewhat obligatory spring rain jacket is an obvious inclusion for spring essentials. Less obvious is the fact that you don’t have to look like a dweeb wearing one. Take Patagonia’s Torrentshell Jacket — simple, effective and surprisingly snappy.
