ON HIM » Beneath PRANA’s loose-cut poly (1) CABO SNAP UP SHIRT ($45), you’ll want the ultrasoft cotton of the company’s (2) FLOCK BASEBALL JERSEY ($36). For smart-looking shorts built tough, pick up (3) CLOUDVEIL’s DYNOS ($50). Suede (4) ACADIAN OXFORDS ($100) from TIMBERLAND take you from work to chillin’ to dinner. ON HER » Superfine merino wool makes the (5) ARC’TERYX EMISSARY T ($80) cool in the blazing sun yet warm in the evening breeze. Bring the basics in (6) TIMBUK2’s EURO TOTE ($30). Pull on (7) OOBE’s BODEGA cropped pants ($55). With a touch of Lycra woven into the cotton, they stretch “just right.” Keep ’em hitched up with (8) ARBORWEAR’s TREE CLIMBER’S BELT ($8). Swaddle your toes in (9) THE NORTH FACE’s STASIS MULES ($60), with a rubber outsole mated to a muted suede. ON HIM » Go west and conquer, young man, with (10) OOBE’s WRANGLER snap-front cotton shirt ($48)—with pearl snaps, no less. Wear it over (11) TIMBERLAND’s cotton RINGER TEE ($35). (Psst, that’s called “layering.”) Staying out west? We suggest you get in touch with your inner SoCal chill via OAKLEY’s vintage-washed, artificially aged (12) INDUSTRAIL DENIM #7 jeans ($65). What’s so special about a red (13) BALL CAP ($15)? This one can be had only from the adrenaline junkies at CRESTED BUTTE MOUNTAIN RESORT. (14) TEVA’s SELIGMAN sandals ($60) have a durable, non-skid rubber sole attached to a soft nubuck footbed. But in the end, summer shoes are about letting the air flow between your toes, and cool feet are happy feet. ON HER » Say hello to your new best friend, the (15) ISIS HILLARY HOODIE ($75); after you feel the ultrasoft fleece, you’ll never want to take it off. Ditto (16) PRANA’s NINA TERRY PANTS ($50). Their supple cotton-and-Lycra blend, easy drawstring waist, and clean lines endow humble sweatpants with yoga-studio chic. The venerable Australian bootmaker BLUNDSTONE goes radical (well, almost) with its new (17) BLOG slip-on mocs ($95). Slide ’em on and you’re good to go.
