Can you wear a T-shirt to work? When it's this hot out, you might be asking yourself this very question. Let this be your sign that if the tee in question has a unique texture and relaxed, boxy fit, then absolutely. This one, from Reiss, for example is cut from a knit nylon fabric with a nubby texture and slightly longer sleeves. Available in both a warm off-white or navy blue, it's perfect with crisp chinos or pleated trousers.

Noah keeps killing these collaborations. The brand just refreshed their partnership with Puma and the standout for Summer 2024 has to be the Canvas Star sneakers. Initially designed as a tennis sneaker and proudly launched at Wimbledon in the 1970s, it was never officially released in the U.S. Now, this refreshed take offers a simple alternative to the more ubiquitous white summer sneakers we see everywhere.

You ask a lot of a tote bag. It has to be stylish but not distracting. It should be durable but easy to carry. And, of course, spacious enough to handle everything we need to lug around. Our current go-to came from an unexpected source—the maker of our favorite jeans. Inspired by the Levi's archive, this perfectly-sized bag is crafted from rugged cotton canvas and finished with leather straps and rivets for added toughness. The main compartment has a snap closure with an interior patch pocket and two handy exterior pocket slips.

These shorts are bananas, literally. Alex Crane's latest design are 100% plastic-free swim trunks made with Bananatex—a revolutionary technical fiber made from Abacá banana plants. The material is soft and water-resistant, while also being quick to dry and 100% biodegradable. They come in three shades and are cut in a throwback style with a drawstring waist and cargo pocket on the side.
