Having laid-back casual style doesn't mean your clothes all need to look super cheap, despite what Pacific Sunwear's Director of Graffiti Trucker Hats would have you believe. Cop designer breeziness, with the new summer drop from James Perse.
An LA-born clothier who set up his first shop back in '03, Perse's just-launched ultra-casual summer line's full of high quality and intentional understatement, exuding an "easy yet sophisticated" nature not seen since Sasha Grey started bragging to everyone about how much Nietzsche she reads. Classy comfort includes:
Vintage Short-Sleeve Polo: Super textured, this number's made from a Japanese "uneven vintage jersey", even though #55 Matsui isn't really that old.
Raglan Henley: In white or olive green, this henley's crafted from a cotton called "slub", despite it being one of the few that won't make you look like one.
Drawstring Twill Chino: These Italian cotton pantaloons rock a drawstring for spontaneous adjustments, and are over-softened "for a lived in feel", a boast your corpse-like Sundays will put to the test.
The list goes on with hoodies, crews, and even more stem coverage like the two-toned linen pant with a contrast waist, unlike the waste at PacSun, which actually blends in quite seamlessly.
