It’s safe to say that the menswear industry is booming.
And the real movers and shakers are building their brands from the ground up on sites like Kickstarter with the aid of dozens of venture-capitalist-minded menswear enthusiasts. So, in the event that you’d like to get a taste of the action…
Tumblr. It’s a vast and mythical landscape of handsome #menswear, impossibly cool gentlemen and achingly beautiful photography flying by at warp speed. And July was filled with summer wanderlust, seersucker, Steve McQueen and the early onset of autumnal inspiration…

Because luxe Neapolitan tailoring house Kiton has just released a handful of national flag pocket squares in silk twill—with rolled edges, naturally. Of course they’ve got Italy and Brazil in there, plus Britain and China (which we’ll assume is wishful thinking for 2018). But the real standout is the star-spangled banner of a pocket square for the good old US of A. And since Team America doesn’t take the field for their first game until Monday, you’ve got all weekend to track one down (Barneys looks like a smart bet). Which is especially timely, since you probably won’t be able to get away with wearing a jersey into the office.

Perfectly timed for any summer beach plans you might be making about now—or that trip to Cannes this weekend—our friends at UrbanDaddy just hipped us to a new line of handsome swim trunks and other beachy sundries from Thaddeus O’Neil.
The man behind the sun-baked collection of menswear (that would be Mr. O’Neil) is a philosopher-king-of-the-beach who spent a few years of endless-summering around the globe, picking up menswear inspiration and a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model for a wife along the way. In other words: exactly the kind of guy you want designing your Japanese indigo après-surf kimono, breezy double-weave stripped blazer and colorful popovers. It’s the sort of surf-worthy gear that wouldn’t look out of place at a coffee shop on the Lower East Side.
You might remember when we hipped you to the Phoenix Project from menswear historians Bench & Loom.
Their mission of bringing extinct pieces of iconic menswear back to life, Jurassic Park–style, began with Johnny Cash’s beloved baseball jacket—but now they’re on to a new icon: James Dean. And it just so happens that our comrades in style over at UrbanDaddy Perks have your exclusive first dibs on the historically accurate reproductions of the boots and shirts that the rebel without a cause famously wore.
Suddenly your summer plans are looking a lot more badass (1955 Porsche Speedster optional).
