We’ve all been there: It’s the end of the workday, and there’s an hour or so to fit in some physical activity before date night. It’d be nice to let off some steam, but then you’re bound to show up sweaty. Or you’re up early, sunshine begging the body out of bed, but it’s not yet time to start work. There’s an opportunity to get sluggish morning blood flowing from the heart to the head, but it’s going to leave you funky in front of coworkers.   

Considering commutes and carry limits, a shower and a change between sweaty exertion and social connection may not be possible. Fortunately, Los Angeles-based menswear label, Buck Mason, just launched the

Trail Collection

with new t-shirts and shorts that bridge the clothing gap between work and workouts. While summer days can be sweet, the men’s odor that they generate may not be.

The Trail Collection features an exclusive style for the summer months of new shirts and workout shorts. The Traverse Curved Hem Tee flaunts Buck Mason’s same consistent fit and simple, solid colors as standard Curved Hem Tees, but is cut from a moisture-wicking, 60/40 cotton/recycled polyester blend that is coated with an odor-killing anti-microbial finish that will allow a quick transition between physical and personal activities without an off-putting smell getting in the way.

As to bottoms, Buck Mason’s new

Roam Short

was inspired by standard-issue 1960s Marine Corps shorts, giving men the freedom to stride as comfortably along the trail as alongside steel rails. The Roam Short’s quick-drying, four-way stretch poly-blend offers the urban outdoorsman a cotton-like hand feel to achieve comfort on the dirt, in the gym, or while running errands.

Together or alone, the Trail Collection reflects Buck Mason’s dedication to fashionable clothing via small batch production. The new line aligns with the company’s dedication to iconic American styles that serve as effortless, classic wardrobe staples. Time-tested manufacturing techniques combined with modern technology means Trail Collection tees and shorts that will last beyond a single season. It’s one of the many reasons why it’s made our definitive list of the best clothing brands for men

Buck Mason’s new Trail Collection is available online now, and on site at their Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Atlanta, and Austin Buck Mason stores. Prices start at $45. Hopefully, this will be one of many athleisure drops from them. Watch this space.

Waste Not: FJällräven Reworks its Scraps Into a Durable and Enduring Collection
fjallraven samlaren clothing line ss21 bigsur acollectiveus web img 3425

If you've ever made sugar cookies (and what guy hasn't), you know that with even the perfect spacing of the cutters, you're left with a few scraps. The same goes with thousands of yards of fabric, which Swedish outdoor outfitter Fjällräven goes through in any given month. But rather than just dumping them into the ocean like other companies (an exaggeration, but not far from the truth), the company has come up with an ingenious — and completely rad — means of repurposing them. Enter its new Samlaren line.

Translated as "the gatherer" in Swedish, Samlaren is a limited-edition capsule that includes longtime Fjällräven favorites like the Kånken
and the Totepack
as well as introduces new products like a Greenland jacket-inspired outerwear piece and a five-panel cap. The through line is that rather than cutting them from virgin fabric, all are comprised of remaindered scraps or deadstock fabrics, breathing new life into old materials. The result is distinct, multi-colored pieces from a company long known for its monochromatic offerings that carry an environmentally friendly backstory.

There's a lot we love about New Balance, including its commitment to Made-in-America craftsmanship from its hometown of Boston, Mass. But its Black History Month campaign, which will be available online and in select retail stores on February 15, has got us more excited than ever. Partnering with some of the brightest lights of the next generation, its My Story Matters
campaign features two of the most exciting young Black Americans with voices that resonate far and wide. Renaissance man Jaden Smith (son of Will Smith) and tennis phenom Coco Gauff front the company's latest capsule, which features limited editions of two of its most iconic shoes and fresh, inclusive apparel.

What is old money style? (Plus, how you can achieve the look)
Adopt Grandpa Core with Old Money Style
Man in newsboy cap and pleated trousers

There is a new trend hitting the style industry that a surprising amount of young people are driving. While the war between Gen Z and Baby Boomers rages on in social issue and economic discussions, a bridge is being built with their clothing. Grandpa core is beginning to land with the youngest group entering the work world as they adopt pleated pants, suspenders, double-breasted jackets, and loafers. While they may rage against the elites online, Gen Z is adopting the old money aesthetic in an attempt to take it for themselves and change the narrative.

Old money style screams class, sophistication, and luxury. While trends may be full of pieces that adhere to the newest looks that go in and out of style, the old-money look sticks to classic pieces that never age out. It invests in basic pieces that may seem boring and plain but combine together to elevate every ensemble to the likes of JFK, Jay Gatsby, and countless others who defined our style in the 20th Century.
