Some guys show off their free spirit by becoming human art installations at desert festivals that rhyme with “churning can". Others go a subtler route, like Denim & Supply’s Spring 2012 collection, from Ralph Lauren.
Boldly eclectic with vintage-washed linen chambray shirts, expertly aged denim, and easy-to-wear, bleach-free knits and outerwear, Denim & Supply marries the downtown disheveled look with classic military-inspired wardrobe staples, striking that elusive balance between looking like you don’t care, and caring. That aesthetic's perhaps best encapsulated in the Serape-Yoke Field Jacket, evoking a somewhat more rugged desert excursion, without so much dancing.
