Best Sweater for Spring
H&M Fine Knit Sweater
Whereas we can always get behind a classic Breton stripe, this spring we’re endorsing a more retro style with this take on the collegiate stripe from H&M. In a fine-knit, 100 percent cotton, this adds an easy layer of warmth when it’s needed and looks great draped over your shoulders when it’s not.

Clarks Wallabee Boot
The iconic Wallabee from Clarks isn’t anything new, but it’s having a renaissance thanks to collabs with Todd Snyder, Neighborhood, Supreme and most recently, October’s Very Own.

Best Raincoat for Spring
Best Made The Mac Coat
“Every good looking man needs a good looking Mac Coat.” If that’s not already a saying, it is now. The Mac style dates back to 1824, when Charles Mackintosh invented the first ever “waterproof” coat. This streamlined and stylish iteration from Best Made Co. is constructed from densely woven Japanese “weathercloth” with a durable water repellent finish. It looks great with anything. Seriously — anything.
