Duer Introduces New Line of Shirts That Will Keep You Cool All Day Long

Vancouver-based Duer, the brand that brought us some of our favorite pants of the year, is launching its first-ever shirt line in two styles that are sure to keep you cool, even if the furnace is blasting in your office this winter.

Kickstarter campaign, which launched just last week — and currently ranks as one of the top fashion projects on the site — features one Duer shirt for dressier business applications and another, more casual option.

The 9-to-9 Button Down is a stretchy, work-ready shirt engineered to wick away moisture while moving with you. The combination of cotton, Coolmax, and spandex is an update on the company’s proprietary L2X denim fabric (the reason why their pants are so comfortable). Duer has also built in a utility pocket with a headphone cable port and reinforced seams to stand up to the tough use you’re sure to give it.

The 24-Hour T-Shirt follows a similar model that promises comfort, function, and durability. Duer shifted the seams in the shirt to avoid chafing and used a triple-needle yoke stitch to keep things nice and tidy. The shirt’s silhouette is athletic, but casual enough to take off the court too.

The T-shirt takes advantage of Tencel, a fabric derived from Eucalyptus trees, that absorbs wetness and is naturally anti-bacterial. Microscopic pores in the fabric help keep moisture off of your skin and in the textile (it’s the same material that goes into their non-denim pants and makes for an excellent travel fabric).

The shirts are sure to be another hallmark of success for the brand, which is already featured in more than 150 retailers and has experienced 300 percent revenue growth year-over-year. In fact, the Kickstarter was funded within eight hours courtesy of backers from over 25 countries.

The shirt campaign will run through November 16 with delivery scheduled for spring 2018. You can learn more — and get half off as an early backer — via Kickstarter.

What is old money style? (Plus, how you can achieve the look)
Adopt Grandpa Core with Old Money Style

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.

These silver rings for men should be added to your accessories arsenal
Our top picks for silver rings for men

Silver rings for men have always felt like some kind of relic from rebellious '90s rock icons like Steven Tyler, or even early-aughts singers like Chad Kroeger (regardless of where you fall on the "Is Nickelback a good band?" question.) Either that or they usually appear as simple engagement rings under a quick Google search. But, silver rings for men have made a comeback, and they're now seen as the ultimate mark of "fashun." From simple, minimalist designs to intricately carved pieces, there is a silver ring to suit every man's taste these days, whether you just want to add a high-end vibe to your outfit or actually draw attention with an eyebrow-raising accessory.

In terms of affordability, silver rings for men perfectly bridge the gap between stainless steel and gold, meaning you can still look stylish without the ensuing buyer's remorse that usually comes with a hefty price tag. So, what if you don't want to be able to knock someone out with all the accessories that the frontman of Aerosmith sports, yet need something a little more noticeable than a simple silver ring with nothing on it? We've got you covered.

This Tag Heuer F1 watch collab might be our favorite nostalgic throwback yet
TAG Heuer partners with Kith for Formula 1 watch
TAG Heuer x Kith Formula 1 watches

In its heyday, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 collection was a sensation, with the '80s and '90s seeing commercial success with over 20 vibrant colors. Ronnie Fieg, founder of Kith, a streetwear brand known for items that take us back to the days when life just seemed simpler, is resurrecting these TAG Heuer watches, though they will cost more than the previous timepieces, with the originals selling for between $130 and $390.

With over 3 million sold, these colorful watches carry a deep sense of nostalgia for millennials, who to this day are a generation seemingly obsessed with the past, and that is why these new TAG Heuer watches will probably sell well once again. Plus, Max Verstappen recently wore one at the Miami Grand Prix, and with the 2-time World Champion's face on something, it always sells big.
