* Great time to grab summer staples for a last minute vacation
* Stock up on transitional pieces and accessories, too
* All under $100 and personally approved by East Dane’s fashion director
East Dane, one of our favorite menswear retailers, is now showcasing editor’s picks by their fashion director, Wayne Gross. It features last minute summer buys all under $100, and (unsurprisingly) has some really great warm weather pieces if you’re planning a final summer trip, or already stocking up for fall. Here are some of our best picks.
1. Corkcicle Beer Chiller
Cracking open a cold one on a warm day at the beach or pool is peak summer. This Corkcicle beer chiller works to keep the cold one cold until the last sip, because no one likes a warm beer.
2. Bather Solid Surf Trunks
These simple pink trunks are relaxed and comfortable, but made of a durable nylon weave for impromptu hikes or rock scrambling.
3. Velva Sheen Short Sleeve Shirts (2 pack)
Great T-shirts make a huge difference when layering for fall and these ones, from Velva, are also well-made enough to stand out on their own. Grab this two-pack and stock up on these in your closet.
4. Timbuk2 Tuk Pack
Timbuk2 has always made great, affordable bags, and the Tuk Pack backpack is no exception. It’s made of a ballistic weave, and features a rolled-top buckle design, laptop sleeve, and organizer pockets. A solid choice for school, a day hike or a weekend getaway.
5. Stussy Bamboo Print Shirt
The Hawaiian shirt is a trend everyone should be in on, and you don’t have to leave prints behind in the summer. Stussy does a great job of distilling what guys want from a shirt like this: a lapel collar, a colorful (but not too loud) print, and a slightly cropped fit that works well under a cardigan for fall.
6. Theory Gaskell Dip Dye Tee
Plain Tees are a must have, but you also need something a little more interesting for casual meals, running errands, travelling, etc. This one from Theory is great because it’s a simple design that you don’t see much, and it isn’t so expensive that you’ll be worried about getting a little sweaty.
7. Le Specs Libertarian Sunglasses
Le Specs is a French sunglass brand that everyone should follow. They’re making great, affordable shades like these “Libertarians,” that give Ray-Ban aviators a run for their money (literally).
8. Tretorn Camden Nubuck Sneakers
Descended from the iconic Tretorn tennis shoes worn in the 1970s at Wimbledon, the Tretorn Camden is a classic. They’re made of soft, birch color nubuck, and feature a padded insole for sock-less comfort. Bonus style points for coming in millennial pink.
9. Levis 505 Regular Fit Jeans
As skinny jeans become a thing of the past, guys are turning to a more classic fit. We love the Levis 505 because they nail the slouchy, vintage style, and come in colors that work year-round.
10. Nixon Time Teller Watch
The best accessory for a minimal, modern look: a classic watch. Nixon’s Time Teller is a great option for activities because it’s comfortable, water-resistant up to 50 meters, and looks good with nothing but board shorts, though it’ll serve you well in the office as well.
