This shirt blows

…because it’s full of wind currents.

A few years ago, I fell in love with this Carven women’s collection of map printed clothing and wanted to get a piece of my own. Turns out, no luck for men. So after a quick eBay search,ย I nabbed this “map print” shirt and have enjoyed it since. It’s relaxed fit makes it ideal for warm weather and I couldn’t be happier with the gorgeous map print.

A few printed + patterned shirts for you. Bonus: They’re on sale!

Warm weather wares: yours for the aping.

Let’s get you squared away for what to wear this summer. My favorite items that I know and love are featured below and are yours for the aping.

1st look) Why isn’t there a new Brand New album? Dude, I have no clue. Let the sadness continue with all black, just trim your toe nails and don’t cut them like talons. That’s gross.

2nd look) Are those old pennies in your pocket or are you just a toddler? Take a note from your nephew. Sneakers, striped tee and grey shorts. Get on it. You’ve got all of these things REMEMBER!

3rd look) What are these WASPy friends for anyway? White denim club. You’ve got a pair. And your chambray shirt is always on tune year round!

Tops: Basic black tee ($80) by Rag & Bone, Striped tee ($88) by Steven Alan,ย Indigo madras shirt ($58) by Gant Rugger.

Bottoms: Grey twill shorts ($95) by Save Khaki, Sureshot chino ($99) by Zanerobe, Thin Finn white denim ($168) by Nudie Jeans.

Shoes:ย “Arizona” slides ($98) by Birkenstocks, Cotu classic sneakers ($68) by Superga, Linen espadrilles ($52) by Soludos.

Whenever I pack for a weekend trip 20 minutes before I leave the house, I throw in a denim or chambray shirt, white denim, a stripe tee, black tee, black denim, and a pair of Soludos (still got my pair from last year!). Take a look at what I wore two springs ago (right here) or see what I was playing around late last summer ย (not much has changed, tbh.)

6 black tees (or TTTTTT)

Got Wang taste but a Hanesย budget?

Dude, I understand. I got you. No sweat. These tees won’t show it either.

L to R:ย Angled hemย ($28) by Urban Outfitters, Crewneckย ($15) by Everlane, Drop-tail rounded neckย ($28) by Urban Outfitters.

Viscoseย ($10) by American Apparel, Wide-neck ($18) by Urban Outfitters, Le Big ($30) by American Apparel.

Different cuts, fits, necklines and fabrications give the old Hanes a break. I personally dig the Viscose one from American Apparel right now. It’s very lightweight and has a good hang to it. Plus, it’s on sale. And while you’re at it, pick up two.

–Do you have any favorite tees that aren’t under shirts?

Out of season & in my price range.

Shopping out of season has it perks. Sure, you can’t buy it now and wear it now. But good things come to those who wait and such, or at least that’s what I chose to follow when I was in Los Angeles last year. I made my annual stop at Opening Ceremony to snatch up all the discarded and left for the dead items that denizens of Los Angeles decided weren’t good for them that winter. I mean, you live in L.A. why would you own anything but bikinis, crop-tops and jellies, right?

Beautiful leather, great color and rather comfortable. It was a style that I wasn’t sure how to wear, but managed to pull them off by placing my pants completely over them and at times, yes at times, I’ll do a slight back tuck so the front part just shows. It’s a look, but hey I’ll give it a try until Seth disapproves. More importantly, I scored these leather jodhpur boots for 75% off, which made cheaper than a pair of selvedge denim. Worth it, man.
