Hear that? That’s the distant calling of longer days and warmer air. Of a return to the beach and beers by the pool. Yes, spring is upon us and we couldn’t be more stoked. To help get us in the mood, we’ve rounded up some of our top men’s spring fashion essentials this year…
L’Estrange – The 24 Hour Trouser
Delivering a great amount of versatility and comfort, L’Estrange’s 24 Hour Trouser is one of our top spring fashion essentials. The lightweight pants can work across casual and more dressed up occasions, plus thanks to their stretch cotton construction and elastic drawstring waist, they remain super comfortable. They offer a tailored, slim cut that’s tapered at the ankle.
The new season calls for a new pair of fresh, crisp white sneakers, and Spring Court offers a great choice. The G2N style offers a low-rise silhouette, crafted with a nappa leather upper and rubber outsole. Ventilated and lined for comfortable wear, these shoes will quickly become your spring go-to’s. Their minimal and clean design makes them super easy to style, too.
When it comes to comfortable and good-looking leisurewear, local brand Venroy is easily one of our go-tos. Crafting all kinds of modern basics out of soft and lightweight linen, the brand knows how to capture the spring and summer spirit. Their Knitted Polo is a great choice this season. The casual tee can be styled easily for different outfits, offering a tonne of versatility.
Pacifico Optical’s unique sunglass styles exude relaxed vibes. The brand hails from Sydney’s own Bondi Beach, so this comes as no surprise. The South is an especially stellar piece. It features a classic Pilot shape frame, but with a floating nose bridge, which gives it a more modern look. They’re a great daily pair of sunnies that can be worn for more dressed up occasions too.
Despite the fact that the mere thought of spring makes us want to get rid of anything in our wardrobes that has sleeves past our elbows, the reality is that it’s still probably going to be pretty chilly for a while. This is where layering comes in. The Asket Sweatshirt is a great option for this. It’s a versatile piece that offers softness and warmth.
Time to give your wallet a spring clean and upgrade to something slimmer. Bellroy’s Card Slip is part of the brand’s Designers Edition collection. It’s made from premium leather that’s tanned in the Netherlands for a richer colour and softer texture. The minimalist piece can hold between 1-6 cards as well as some cash. Its incredibly skinny silhouette allows it to slip into any pocket without any bulk or bulge.
One of our top picks for men’s spring fashion essentials is Assembly Label’s Ocean Swim Shorts. The piece offers versatility, meaning you can wear them to the beach or pool, or just as regular daily casual shorts. They’re made from a quick dry coated cotton and feature an elasticated waist and draw cord. The shorts are available in a refined range of neutral colours.
Sandqvist’s super durable Hans Laptop Backpack is a functional bag that has a dedicated laptop compartment, tablet pocket, plus a spacious main compartment. Securely closed via a flaptop opening, buckles, and a thick drawstring, it’s a great option for daily wear to the office or uni. The backpack offers a sleek look with leather details and charcoal colourway.
A good quality basic t-shirt is a year-round staple. AS Colour’s Staple Tee is a great choice, thanks to its soft pure cotton construction. It features a ribbed crew neckline and offers comfortable wear and a regular fit. The tee is available in a range of colours, but we think you can’t go wrong with classic navy.
The Nelson Series is Mill Project’s first design. The refined watch offers a minimal look that can work well as both an everyday piece, or something saved for special occasions too. Available in either a black and silver iteration, or tan and black, the sleek watch features a super clean look and an accurate Swiss ETA 802.102 movement.
Ksubi’s Chitch Chop jeans deliver a slim cut and a tapered leg. Ideal for casual wear, the jeans are made from a stretch fabric that offers superior comfort. The undeniably modern style is rounded out with raw edges on the hems, which can also be folded up a couple of times for a more streamlined look.
