The best merino wool clothing for men to stay warm and look good
Take it from a Seattle dude: These are the best wool clothing buys for men
The best Merino wool clothing is soft, breathable, odor-resistant, and temperature-regulating.

Like strong beer and Medieval swords, Merino wool has been a favorite of human beings since at least the Middle Ages. The Merino sheep’s warm, fuzzy coats yield ultra-fine fibers that are softer than cashmere and smoother than silk. They’re so soft because they are incredibly thin: A single Merino wool fiber measures less than 22 microns (a micron is a millionth of a meter), compared to the average human hair at 50 to 100 microns. That same structure guarantees breathability, natural moisture-wicking, thermo-regulation, and odor resistance -- all of which make it a near-perfect fiber for performance clothing.
Another plus: The best Merino wool is now grown in Australia, using sustainable farming practices. The raw ingredients churning through each four-legged fuzzy factory are sunshine, fresh air, water, and grass. Each sheep produces new fleece every year, making Merino wool a completely renewable resource. The fiber also takes color beautifully, so it’s a favorite choice for designers from a wide range of product categories. Here are just a few of our favorite pieces from the world’s best Merino wool brands.

The 10 Best Men’s Shorts for Spring 2022
Man in Chubbies Shorts laying on the hood of a car while holding a grape over his mouth.

If it looks to you like men's shorts have been getting shorter every year, you're right. They have been, and that's a good thing. We've come a long way since the days of baggy cargos and jorts well below the knee ... about five to seven inches to be exact. The shorter inseams of men's shorts present a sleeker, more refined silhouette. Whether you love the look of your legs or not, it is far more stylish to embrace the natural lines of your body with a higher, slimmer short.

To demonstrate what we mean, we've assembled a collection of the ten best shorts for spring 2022. The collection offers a range of inseams, but they all sit above the knee, which is a good rule to follow. The best men's shorts out there today are slim but not constricting thanks to lightweight and flexible materials. So don't be afraid to show off a little more skin this year. Just be careful to avoid uncomfortable burns by applying extra sunscreen where your thighs haven't seen daylight for, well, ever.
