A Breezy, Ballin’ Shirt and More of This Week’s Best Menswear Releases

Do you hear that? It’s the sound of waves crashing on some far off beach. Or…wait. Maybe it’s the sound of glasses clinking by some sun-drenched pool. Or…hold on one more second. Is that just the sound of all your friends gathering in the backyard to crack open a couple of beers, throw something on the grill, and celebrate the impending arrival of summer? Whatever it is, we hear it, too. Because summer is indeed closing in on us. And while we’ve still got a couple of weekends to go before Memorial Day, this week’s coolest menswear releases know that the changing of the seasons is nearly upon us—and they’re delivering exactly what we all need to get ready.

If you’re in the market for a shirt to wear while watching the NBA postseason by the side of that aforementioned pool, Tombolo has a cabana shirt for you that the brand calls an “Air Ball” (even though it’s really a slam dunk). If you’d rather channel a western vibe with your warm-weather loungewear, Dandy Del Mar has you covered on that front. As for the swim trunks to wear with those shirts, you’ve got a patchwork pair from Birdwell and Nick Fouquet, plus a woolen—yes, woolen!—one from Woolmark and Vilebrequin. There’s also an OVO x Porter bag to carry everything you need, a pair of Gentle Monster x Moncler shades to shield you from the sun, and a few jackets—from Michael Kors x Ellesse, Dockers x Malbon, and Rello x Stadium—to keep you warm when the evening chill sets in.

That’s not even close to all of it, so keep reading to see what’s in store.

Color-Block Woven Windbreaker Jacket

Michael Kors x Ellesse

Light on weight but heavy on cool points, Kors’s collaboration with Ellesse brings all the retro-flavored goodness you’d hope for from this kind of project. Case in point: this color-blocked windbreaker.

Collaborative Camo Hoodie

JSP x Cashmere Sound

Camo this good— of a collab between JSP and Cashmere Sound—was meant to stand out, not blend in.

2-Way Helmet Bag

OVO x Porter-Yoshida & Co.

Carry it as a tote or a crossbody—your call. But carry it you should, because Porter’s team-up with OVO takes all the things we all love about the high-end, highly specialized Japanese bag-maker and blends them with Drake and the OVO crew’s expertise in street-ready style.

‘Air Ball’ Basketball Cabana Shirt

Listen, we can’t necessarily explain why this “air ball” is nestled firmly in the net. But we can say that the shirt is cool, comfy, and a can’t-miss component of any summer fit.

Woolen Swim Trunks Super 120s

Vilebrequin x The Woolmark Company

You heard it here first! Well, maybe. But nearly a decade ago, Esquire officially went on the record to sing the praises of wearing wool in the summertime. Now, all these many years later, Vilebrequin and Woolmark have delivered what might just be the most emphatic expression of that ethos: these trunks, which really are perfect for the balmy days ahead. Give ‘em a shot. You might just become a true believer.

Chore Coat

Dockers x Malbon

The chances you can execute the perfect swing while wearing this chore coat? Pretty low, tbh. The chances you’ll wear it all the damn time, on and off the links? Much, much higher.

Gold-Tone Stainless Steel Pendant Necklace

Fossil x Smiley

Don’t worry. Be…the owner of this necklace.

Varsity Jacket

Rello x Stadium

Contemporary artist Rello and Stadium—the in-house apparel line from Stadium Goods—just released a collaborative varsity jacket. Wear it now, because it’s (barely) chilly enough in the evening to get away with it in most parts of the country. Also, because it looks so good. Then, once the dog days have passed, wear it all the damn time.

311 Board Shorts

Nick Fouquet x Birdwell

Sometimes, “patchy” is a good thing.

Swipe 1 G1 Sunglasses

Gentle Monster x Moncler

This goggle-style frame would look fantastic speeding down the slopes. Before that, though, feel free to give it a shot in sunnier situations.

Gaucho Terry Cloth Shirt in Emerald

Dandy Del Mar

For western- and beach-wear enthusiasts alike.

Fintastic Swim Trunk

Southern Tide

Sharks: not just a good (if fate-tempting) print for a pair of swim trunks. In this iteration, they’re also a part of Southern Tide’s ongoing partnership with Beneath the Waves, a nonprofit dedicated to ocean conservation. If you like sharks, clean oceans, cool swimwear, or any combination thereof, take these for a spin.

The Pin Polo

Peter Millar x Thomas Keller

Thomas Keller is the chef at world-renowned restaurant The French Laundry. Peter Millar makes a damn fine polo shirt. The two teamed up on this polo, which reinterprets The French Laundry’s iconic clothespin into a custom print. The best part: all of the proceeds benefit Ment’or, an organization devoted to culinary excellence in America, and The First Tee, which helps kids build character through the game of golf.
