Five Easy Pieces

Our Editors’ Five Style Picks for the Week

By UrbanDaddy Staff ·
Olivers All-New All Over Short. “Sounds like a tongue twister, but it’s actually great news. The folks at Olivers took an already superior knock-around pair of shorts and somehow made them even better. They’re lightweight but durable. Tailored but with room to move. And you can get away with them in most short-wearing situations, whether it’s a backyard cookout or a 500-mile bike ride—the guys actually tested this out when moving their HQ from SF to LA by biking between the two cities for the move. I tested the backyard cookout. Very solid shorts.” —Najib Benouar

Killspencer Bone Collection. “As UD’s LA editor, I’ve found myself coveting Killspencer’s black leather goods more than a few times over the years. Now the company just released their so-called ‘Bone Collection’ of eerily beautiful, off-white nubuck bags (plus a football), sustaining said coveting for many more moons to come.” —Hadley Tomicki

Maison Labiche Print T-Shirts. “I’ve been a fan of these guys for a while. I think they do the print T-shirt thing in a way that avoids the obnoxiousness of so many other labels. The problem in the past has been that I haven’t found one of theirs that really spoke to me. But I like this new ‘gentleman’ one. It gives me something to strive toward.” —Geoff Rynex

Vans for Opening Ceremony: Old Skool LX Sneakers. “Nothing screams summer like a pair of fresh white kicks. Right? Sure. But this pair of monochromatic light-pink leather Vans for Opening Ceremony puts a unique, just-feminine-enough spin on the summer staple. And if you’re not in the market for pale-pink sneakers, the beige version’s nice, too.” —Ilana Dadras

Atalaye Swim Trunks. “Meanwhile, over at Unionmade, a bunch of tailored-in-Portugal swim trunks inspired by a French beach town are happening. The patterns demand attention, but not obnoxiously so, and the inseam is just right for my longer-than-average legs. All of which will likely equate to me happening with them in the very near future.” —Kelly Larson
