Wellen has relaunched and it's better than ever. Now part of the Huckberry family, the Wellen team has been working on bringing back what we all loved about the brand—those cool, coastal-inspired classics—now infused with a shot of smart sustainability. They've partnered with responsible factories and committed to using such eco-conscious materials as organic denim and hemp. The chore coat is awesome, the jeans are wildly comfortable but the T-shirts ... oh man, T-shirts. Our new favorite. Made from a blend of organic cotton and hemp, they're textured and soft and feature a relaxed and flattering fit.

These are what we'd imagine James Bond would wear swimming. Everest Isles makes handsome swimwear and shirting made for adventure with a focus on sustainability and built to withstand years of exposure to salt water, chlorine, sun and sand. Their most rugged shorts feature Marlow Ropes sailing cordage ties for extra durability. Cut for adventure, the suit has two side pockets large enough for a waterproof phone case and an internal bungee cord for keys. The zippers are heavy duty AQUAzip from Italy that are finished with stainless steel pulls that won't rust or corrode.

If you've been feeling the wavey vibes of Dries and Prada, this is a no-brainer. This sharp-tailored shirt, cut from a slightly textured rip-stop cotton, features a broad brushstroke pattern that's anything but subtle. It's finished with a loop collar, side slits and shell buttons. Meaning it looks and feels like it should cost three times this price.

It's the little things, right? Sun Buddies' latest collaboration with Carhartt WIP takes the timeless wayfarer shape and sizes them up for a more modern look and feel. These handcrafted Shane frames are cut from classic tortoise acetate and fitted with dark-green Carl Zeiss lenses for ultimate protection from bright sunlight and glare. Plus, they come in a hardwearing case.

These are the chinos you'll live in all summer. Eunice Lee, the designer behind Unis, knows how to make pants that look good and feel great. She's been doing it for two decades now. The single-pleated Davis chinos are a very 2019 take on a menswear staple. The higher rise in the waist transitions to a comfortable thigh and tapered leg for a silhouette that's relaxed yet looks cool and put-together.
