The Manual’s Top 5 Spring Shirts

Hibernating season is well and truly over. From here on in, we’re not bothered about going straight home after work to hunker down. We want to roam the green spaces, eat al fresco and drink outside til after dark. This shift in season calls for some clever shirting. A shirt that will take you swiftly from the office to the park, am I right? Here are our five favorites to take you from work to play stylishly.

The Hunter’s Shirt by Ball and Buck

According to all American brand Ball and Buck, this shirt will serve as the most versatile piece in your wardrobe. Light and breathable for spring, the Hunter’s shirt is made from 100% cotton and features a fit designed to work for every body type. This super flattering peach hue is our fave…

Japanese Striped Broadcloth Short Sleeve Shirt by Apolis

This striped number packs one helluva sartorial punch. We love the tailored shape and hidden pen pocket. Apolis have partnered with a 90-year-old tailoring cooperative in Honduras to ensure each shirt is of a supreme quality. Awesome!

EPLA Buttondown by Epaulet New York

This marine overdye classic buttondown by Epaulet is a lighter alternative to denim for spring. We love that with every wear and wash this shirt will continue to fade, destined to be uniquely yours. Pre-shrunk for a super slim fit, this shirt was made to be worn with chinos or tailored shorts.

Slim-Fit Leaves Shirt by Club Monaco

If print is your thing, this Club Monaco shirt is for you. Made from lightweight cotton, this slim-fit shirt also features short sleeves so its ideal for staying cool in the spring heat, no matter how hot your commute gets.

Riviera Polo Shirt by Sunspel

This smart polo shirt was originally tailored for Daniel Craig for his role as James Bond in Casino Royale (just saying).  On closer inspection, it’s not hard to see why. Soft breathable cotton mesh, minimal detailing and a super slim cut. We’re sold.

Mitchell & Ness teamed up with Miller Lite on throwback gear to help you look like your dad
We love this Mitchell & Ness collection for Miller Lite
mitchell and ness miller lite athletic wear collaboration x  amp club collection full suit 3


It seems everyone loves the '80s, and honestly, what's not to love? The simpler times, the yuppies, MTV, and, of course, the fashion. Mitchell & Ness Nostalgia Co., a renowned seller of historically accurate vintage sports apparel, is capitalizing on that throwback trend with another partnership with Miller Lite. Together, they have launched a limited-edition collection that "gives a fresh take on the nostalgia of the original Athletic Club line" that originated in that decade. That's right! Now you can own vintage-inspired crew necks, sweatpants, t-shirts, windbreakers, and hats that will take you all the way back to that classic '80s vibe.
What's in the collection?
Pieces from the collection range from $35 to $100, according to a press release,  made with "premium fabrics, providing high-quality pieces that are built to last." This includes a classic crewneck sweatshirt that is unisex and comes with ribbed side panels for maximum stretch, ribbing at the cuffs for a truly '80s look, and the Miller Lite Athletic Club emblem on the front for $80. Also in the collection are the snapback hat in navy ($35), a navy windbreaker (because you can't have a throwback line without a windbreaker) for $100, sweats, and a 100% polyester unisex satin navy jacket ($95) to cap off the look. It can't get much more '80s than this.

This incredible chronograph watch just debuted, and you’re going to love it
This luxury watch from Bravur is a stunner
Bravur La Crosa Rosa III

If you're a fan of luxury watches, you may want to take a deep breath before you continue. Bravur, the Swedish watchmaker and cycling enthusiast, just dropped their newest model, The La Corsa Rosa model III, and it's as stunning as you'd come to expect from the manufacturer. The founders, with all their watches, pay homage to The Grand Tour—La Corsa Rosa (nickname for Giro d’Italia), La Grande Boucle (referring to the Tour de France), and La Vuelta (or Vuelta a España)—three of the biggest, most historic bike races in the world. Each watch is hand built in Båstad, Sweden, and the detail and style are nothing short of perfection.

The La Corsa Rosa model III
The new model was inspired by the Giro d'Italia, which is the first Grand Tour of the year. It has a case diameter of 38.2 mm, both beautiful and weighted thoughtfully. The case, made from 316L stainless steel, has been treated with a matte black ceramic coating. The sandwich dial has gorgeous pink accents, an homage to the leader's jersey of the race. Additionally, the tricolor on the sub-dial is a reference to the blue climber's jersey and the purple sprinter's jersey, worn by the rider with the most points in the mountains and sprinters classification.

HEYDUDE Slip-On Shoes Are So Comfortable You Won’t Want to Wear Anything Else

This content was produced in partnership with HEYDUDE.
As a brand, HEYDUDE is sweeping the nation. Becoming more and more popular with just about every age, and people from every walk of life -- it's the fastest-growing footwear brand in the U.S. and the company will surpass $1B in value real soon. There's a good reason for it. HEYDUDEs are stylish, super comfortable, convenient, and once you try them, you'll fall in love. To understand why, we have to backtrack a little bit.

In warmer weather, flip-flops and sandals are the go-to, not just because they keep your feet cool and open, but also because they're so convenient to put on. You just have to slide your feet right in and off you go. They're not at all stylish, however, and you wouldn't want to wear them with certain outfits. HEYDUDEs fix that problem, and so much more. Known as some of the "cushiest, comfiest, airiest, featheriest, lightest shoes on Earth," these words of praise still don't do these shoes justice. You might be wondering, what makes them so comfortable? What kinds of styles do they offer? We're going to explore precisely that.
