This classic-meets-contemporary cotton canvas pair designed in collaboration with British brand Universal Works is proof that we really can all work together for the greater good.
Gant Ecofriendly Plastic Oxford Shirt
An Oxford shirt made out of plastic doesn’t sound like the most wearable thing, but take a look at this.

Basic Rights Short Sleeve Camp Collar Shirt
From Kanye West to A$AP Rocky, the world isn’t short of musicians-turned-designers – or should that be lyricists-turned-Lagerfelds? Joining the mix is Basic Rights, a menswear brand founded by Freddie Cowan from English indie rock band The Vaccines that focuses on turning out future classics like this seventies-inspired camp collar shirt.
Away Dopp Kit
No man of sound mind should be caught dead flinging his toiletries into a plastic bag. Especially not now that luggage brand Away has created a line of Dopp kits (AKA a fancy washbag) which are waterproof, compartmentalised and pretty enough to sit on the fanciest hotel sink top with no trouble.
