As a self-diagnosed Francophile, I’m no stranger to the French labels APC and Lacoste. Because of this, I was excited to see the two juggernauts in the gallic ready-to-wear space collaborate on a capsule collection this week. Playing with exaggerated themes of sportiness, while not losing any of the tres chic touches of classic French menswear, the collaboration is all retro iconography, playful denim, and classiques-a-la-mode. I’m quite partial to the patchwork polo, with a cleverly designed crocodile print and an imaginative silhouette of paneled cotton piqué. It’d perfectly pair with the Leo jeans, coming in a wide leg and stonewash Japanese denim. It’s collaborations like this that give me hope – neither brand diluted the other, but instead created a great, wearable collection that’s the best of both worlds. Prices start at $30.

Proof Rover

Yes, you read that correctly, and no, we don’t invoke the Land Rover without absolute certainty our claims will be delivered on. Whether you opt for the straight or slim option, each pair of pants in the Proof Rover Collection calls upon the name of a certain all-terrain vehicle for a reason–they’re durable, comfortable and capable of handling any obstacle in their way–all while looking damn good in the process. They feel like sweats, they age like raw denim and they’re as durable as the most classic work pants. When you want to check all the boxes–with all of the color options–you need to buy Proof Rover Pants today.
