I'm on the lookout for shorts more than usual this season. Typically, summer time weather on Canada's West coast is simply a pair of rolled up chinos and a linen button down or cotton shirt. Coastal dwelling is more likely to have spring temperatures in the middle of July accompanied by a cool ocean breeze. Hopefully Vancouver will see a nice amount of heat next weekend for Gentlemen's Reserve giving plenty of reasons for everyone to be donning shorts.
I feel like espadrilles are one of the quintessential warm weather options. Better than a pair of flip flops, but not quite sneakers, you're able to wear them with a whole host of wardrobe options. A pair of these will navy/white stripe joints will set you back 58 bucks.
WM J Mills made this special edition Ice Bag for Unionmade. It is a great summer time bag, made of cotton duck canvas and solid webbing straps, capable of carrying your daily necessities. Also, I have quite an affinity to tan bags.
Everyone has their preferred option for a summer cap. Apolis + Matteo teamed up to produce this 5 panel cap from natural Italian linen, with dual vents and leather adjustable strap. Simple.
Norse Projects Lindar Cargo Short
Norse Projects rarely dissappoints. They did a great job taking the lead from military cargo pants and turning them into a versatile pair of shorts. I see them as a grown mans version of cargo shorts. You can roll them up or let them be.
Engineered Garments Work Shirt
This staple from EG is currently on sale from END Clothing. Act fast if you're in the market, it'll sell out fast. Cotton chambray may be everywhere, but the level of details in this shirt sets it apart, hands down.
I'm in the market for a new bike. As I continue to refine my search, I'll settle for reading about other peoples cycling journeys in this publication. Available now from Vetted Shop.
I just posted DDG's eyewear case but had to include it in this weeks kit. It's truly a beautiful hand made case and is on my need-to-pick-up list.
