Five Easy Pieces

Our Editors’ Five Style Picks for the Week

By UrbanDaddy Staff ·
Uniqlo U. “I snatched up as much of the Uniqlo and Lemaire collaboration as I could, so I’m pretty thrilled to see that they’ve now appointed Christophe Lemaire as artistic director, and I’m looking forward to what looks like an entirely new branch of Uniqlo that he’ll be heading up. These guys seem to do no wrong as far as collaborations go, and it’s good to see this one made a bit more permanent.” —Geoff Rynex

Faherty Ventura Shirt. “For a shirt that screams summer but also plainly states ‘I am laid-back and so is my torso,’ there’s this indigo-dyed short-sleeve option from Faherty. Note the surfer-inspired journal print and the coconut buttons. Then note that it would look good with swim trunks, sunglasses and some sort of umbrella drink, ideally all three, and definitely adjacent to a body of water.” —Kevin Gray

Marine Layer Rose All Day Denim Blazer. “I’m really into this jacket. Like, ‘ready to spring $175 plus whatever the inordinate cost of express shipping this thing to Central Europe is’ into it. ‘Want to wear it all the time—from morning to night, with whatever underneath’ into it. ‘Willing to look past that incredibly douchey name’ into it. Because, geez... that name. You sure know how to almost ruin a good thing, Marine Layer.” —Sam Eichner

FairEnds x Armitage & McMillan Shibori Ball Caps. “I already own more ball caps than any one one-cranium’d person could ever need. But for some reason I’m a sucker for them. Throw in some niche #menswear brands and dyeing techniques, and you’ve got me, hook, line and sinker.” —Najib Benouar

Uniqlo Ponte Joggers. “Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy about the summer weather. I’m just not a fan of trying to stretch pants that don’t want to stretch over my slightly sweaty summer body. That’s right: I’m tired of wearing jeans. And so, I’ve started to acquire not-too-expensive tailored pants of various styles. In other words, I’ve been frequenting Uniqlo. These were my latest purchase. They’re extremely comfortable (due to the fact that they are sweatpants) and yet they look super polished (thanks to this soft ponte fabric with a slight sheen to it). As you can see, they’re basically chic grocery shopping pants masquerading as decent-looking dress pants. Which is something jeans have never done for me.” —Ilana Dadras
