Spring is when we collectively emerge from our winter hibernation and look for every opportunity to get out and about. That means many Friday and Saturday nights with the stove off. Of course, since you’re not the only one doing so, those sweats and old tees are going to need to stay in the dresser when you’re going out. Here’s the gear we recommend for a night out this spring.


Todd Snyder Barracuda Knit Jacket

Since the weather hasn’t fully turned yet and nights are especially chilly, a refined, attractive jacket is a spring essential. Todd Snyder has the perfect option that won’t weigh you down. The Barracuda Knit Jacket is a lightweight bomber that pairs with just about everything, meaning you can wear it to a four-star French joint or the corner bar for drinks before you retire. Perfect for layering, the Barracuda Knit Jacket is an ideal transition-to-warm-weather coat.


Everlane Slim Fit Black Jean

Everlane is one of our go-to labels for affordable, good-looking staples. It should come as no surprise, then, that we’re big fans of the brand’s new Slim Fit Black Jean. The black jeans pair nicely with a pair of all-white sneakers and a button-down for a relaxed yet refined look. They’re the perfect color and cut to help move your jean rotation away from all lounge-around-the-house denim. And, in classic Everlane fashion, these jeans won’t murder your wallet.


Goodlife Slub Split Hem Crew

Allow us to make the case for the nice t-shirt. Yes, we know, a night out has long meant a button-down and shoes without a swoosh. That doesn’t have to be the case. Goodlife makes some of the nicest tees around, and each works just as well at a jazz bar as it does on the couch. The trick is in the cut and the lack of graphics. We’re fans of this Slub Split Crew, which happens to be available in a range of solid, attractive colors.


Paul Evans Dress Shoes

[Partner]  Tired of the limited options in the brick-and-mortar world and the traditional retail experience, the guys from Paul Evans set out to make their own luxury Italian shoes. Made from the finest Italian calfskin leather that’s been Blake stitched for exceptional comfort, sleek design and the ability to resole, these dress shoes are heritage brand quality available at a fraction of the cost. Lace up something better with Paul Evans.


Rogue Territory Jumper Shirt

This is not your average button-down. All we need to do to prove that to you is put it in your hands. It feels exceedingly soft and begs to be worn. The reason for that is the Japanese fabric Rogue Territory sourced to make it at their shop in downtown L.A. The fabric has texture and character. Plus, it’s finished with a flap pocket and honey colored horn buttons. While it costs a little more than your average button-down, sometimes you get the quality you pay for.


Vans Black ‘Stitch + Turn’ OG Old Skool Sneakers

A night out doesn’t mean you have to leave the sneakers at home. It does mean you have to leave the loud, attention-grabbing sneakers at home, however. The perfect solution is this pair of elevated Vans Old Skools, which are part of the Stitch + Turn Collection and are crafted from leather. A refined take on one of the classic silhouettes of all time, these sneakers work perfectly at a good bar with a pair of dark denim jeans.


Skagen Falster Smartwatch

The smartwatch is an accessory still stuck in infancy. Despite the efforts of many brands—Apple included—the smartwatch market is still dominated but clunky design and even clunkier style. Skagen makes what is, in our opinion, the best looking smartwatch out there. The Falster allows you to wear a smartwatch to a nice dinner without looking like you’re some tech-obsessed early adopter. Powered by Android Wear 2.0, the stylish watch delivers alerts and offers access to Google Assistant. Available with an array of bands, the Falster Smartwatch is the smartwatch for the guy who cares about winning style points.


Saturdays Kevin Sweater

You may be able to go with the short sleeves during the day, but at night, spring can still feel a lot like winter. We recommend a comfortable sweater that works with all the denim and pairs of pants you have in your closet. Saturdays New York City has just the sweater, as the brand’s new Kevin Sweater is ideal for springtime comfort. Made with 5% cashmere, the sweater is exceedingly comfortable and won’t scratch your skin. Ribbed cuffs, collar, and hem give the sweater a relaxed look that’s complemented by the very sweatshirt-esque breast pocket. But while casual, it works perfectly with some nice jeans and a good coat when you’re hitting the town.


Uniqlo Dry Lightweight Jacket

A simple way to elevate any outfit is to toss a sports jacket over top of it. But we’re not talking the shoulder-padded, ill-fitting monstrosities of old; today many brands make simple, clean sports jackets that are far less stuffy. For an option that won’t hurt your bank account, look to Uniqlo. The brand’s Dry Lightweight Jacket is a steal at $40 and works just as well over a tee as it does a button-down.


Tanner Goods Standard Belt

If you’re tucking in your shirt, a belt really pulls an outfit together. Not only does the Tanner Goods Standard Belt in natural leather look good out of the box, but it looks even better years down the line. That’s because the clean, untouched leather will age beautifully with use. The black buckle adds a unique element and helps this leather belt stand out from the crowd.


Faherty Short-Sleeve Coast Shirt - Indigo Poppy

Spring is the season for getting a bit loud. Whether you introduce some bold colors or some unique patterns into your wardrobe, this is the time to do it, which is why we think this short-sleeve button-down from Faherty is a perfect fit. It’s not drab but it also doesn’t go way over the top, making it okay for just about any guy. The floral pattern gives it a subdued Hawaiian shirt vibe, while the cut and simple colors make it accessible.
