This summer, it’s all about embracing the new and different, don’t you think? Here, our cool hunter Lance Avery Morgan recommends some of his favorite finds for you to enjoy. Let the good times begin.
FEEL SLIM AND TRIM
The perfect, slim-fitting shirt is possible. Really perfect, as a matter of fact. The sleek and slim UNTUCKit line of shirts and pants (and warmer gear for fall) are about as great as it gets for ease of comfort and travel-friendly as well.
$99 for shirt, $98 for pants, as shown. At 80 stores and UNTUCKit.com.
THE TEAM, AND THE MOVIE, THAT COULD
If ever there was a sports movie about the can-do Texas spirit, it’s the Texas-produced 12 Mighty Orphans. Starring Luke Wilson, Robert Duvall, Martin Sheen, and Lane Garrison, it’s the true Depression-era story of a group of orphans led to a football championship that captured the hearts of FDR and the entire country.
CHASING THE SUN
Let’s face it, literally. We’ll be in the sun all summer, and we need to protect our skin from its potential damage. We love that Oars & Alps, for the naturally-inclined, is on a mission to help men chase the sun safely. All six sun-friendly products, from sunscreen to moisturizer to post-sun cooling spray, are 30+ SPF. Prices vary.
When hosting a gathering, what better way to show that you’re a true Texan than with state-shaped ice cubes? These conversation starters are not only cool, literally, but also are practical to keep chilled beverages as cool as, you guessed it, ice.
HATS OFF TO YOU, BUDDY
Sometimes a fellow just wants to don a hat in the summer to keep the heat out and style on. May we suggest this 100% straw number, with a silk grosgrain band, made in Italy? It’s called the Borsalino and should be addressed as such as your new favorite warm-weather must-have.
$224. At Yoox.com.
If you haven’t taken up pickleball, which is sweeping the world, it’s not too late. This fun derivation of tennis meets ping pong meets badminton, even has a devoted fan in Clooney. If it’s fun enough for him, it’s fun enough for us. Get your equipment and accessories at Franklin Sports to soon own the court.
We’re inspired by top celebrity looks to see how we can replicate them and make them our own. This summer we’re digging the glasses that Daniel Craig wears in the upcoming Bond film, No Time To Die, with the luxe lenser Barton Perreira x 007 Series 2 Collection. In four killer styles.
