Fashion labels claim to draw inspiration from a staggering array of sources, from cross-country motorcycle trips to futuristic space regimes led by the reanimated body of Gandhi, but have you ever even been on a Harley? Or peyote? For gear you can relate to, check the classic athletic vibe of Number:Lab.
NY-based Lab's spankin' fresh spring line, reminiscent of backyard ball-tossing, is built on a clean athletic aesthetic (short sleeves, slim fit), then gets deets like double-layering and reversible fabrics, to seamlessly combat your unclean aesthetic of covering your clothing in mustard. Basics include a smattering of ultra-thin pima cotton tees, like a gray henley ringer with textured striping, and a white crewneck with blue or green ringer deets that reverses colors when flipped inside-out; double-layered jersey polos get tailored side panels for ventilation, are available with either jersey knit or woven collars, and come in colors like heather w/ purple and white w/ royal blue, combo detailing perfect for the classic American pastime of distracting eyes from your doughy midsection while disrobing. For long sleeves, there's solid-colored hooded henleys, a reversible jersey-to-pique knit gray v-neck w/ alternate side in either yellow or white, and new zip-up hoodies designed to "provide performance on cool summer evenings on the beach", so you'll totally be in the zone for laying on a towel wishing a cooler would bring a beer to you.
Unmentionables swaddling comes in the form of slim-fitting board shorts with stripes down the hip, and a pair of fleece-lined mid-thigh cotton shorts, a classic skin-showing gym teacher look ironically inspired by the futuristic moon-tan of John Stockton.
