“Here at work, it’s hard to define what is really casual anymore. But I’ve put that question to bed after finding the Vuori Sunday Jogger. These are my go-to pants for just about anything. These pants along with a fine pair of sneakers can pass for more than casual. They are extremely comfortable and great fitting. They happen to be my all-purpose pants this past week in Spain. The side zippers make it easy to stow away my phone and now-needed vaccine card and help ease the pain of the five-hour delay. My only complaint might be that I don’t have a second pair.” Buy: $89
“I needed some new white tees and have been a fan of Lady White Co. for some time now. They look and fit great when you first try them on and, more importantly, even after washing. And they hold up and age well too. I have them in other colors and have been wearing them regularly for over a year now and love how they break in and get more comfortable with wear. To top things off they are cut, sewn, and knit in Los Angeles, CA using cotton sourced from North Carolina farms.” Buy: $99/2-Pack
“My ‘workout drawer’ is a hodgepodge of old soccer gear, cotton t-shirts, and Underarmour briefs I’ve owned for nearly a decade. Since I’m gearing up for a half marathon, I decided it was time to invest in some proper running apparel. I gave SAXX Underwear a try and was blown away by their performance gear. The Hot Shot SS tee uses SAXX’s DropTemp™ tech to keep me cool on long runs. Most of my cotton tees just absorb miles of sweat but I feel properly regulated with the Hot Shot shirt. And, the Hot Shot briefs with SAXX’s proprietary ‘ballpark pouch’ are the most comfortable pair of underwear I own. No chafing, all compact protection.” Buy
“White footwear is the go-to in the warmer months. While I’m all for Common Projects and other pure white options, a pop of color keeps the clean aesthetic and adds some flash. Joining the heavy rotation of Continental 80s and Killshots is this new pair of Air Jordan XXXVI SE Glory sneakers that combines the iconic new Air Jordan 36 silhouette with just enough gold detailing to make a statement.” Buy: $185
