Not all summer prints have to be tropical. Take, for example, this camp collar shirt from Norse Projects. Cut from a soft cotton and finished with pearl buttons, it features a modern, hand drawn print that resembles a stylized marble pattern. In this cool bottle green? It's a solid summer choice.

What's cooler than a classic pair of Vans? A limited-edition pair that also makes the world a better place. Part of a collaboration with the Parks Project, these canvas sneakers celebrate adventure and feature an allover cloud wash along with the project's signature “leave it better than you found it” slogan. What's more, the two are contributing $250,000 to the National Parks Conservation Association in support of its mission.

You want some easygoing shorts this summer? You can't go wrong with classic Indian madras that has been twisted by the neo-prep masters at Rowing Blazers. The brand is leaning into a country club vibe for their summer collection, but of course, they're subverting it in the best way possible. Case in point: these shorts, which feature a comfortable mid-rise elastic waist and a right-on-target 5.5” inseam.

We see your pandemic puzzle and raise you this. Recharge your batteries by spending some scree-free time with Little Building Co.'s models of the most iconic architectural works in the world.

It includes interior and exterior details—crafted from American cherry and Aspen wood—designed using the building's original architectural plans and photographs. At the end, you've got a great piece to sit on the bookcase.

This tote should've been an anorak 25 years ago. That's because it's part of L.L. Bean's new "archive re-issure collection." The vintage-inspired styles, made from the brand's surplus outerwear fabric, are cut from bold '90s colors but the black tote bag trimmed in teal is pretty subtle. But these pieces are going fast, so you'd better move.
