Menswear shop Armitage & McMillan opened this week in the Riverfront neighborhood. Owners Daniel Armitage and Darin McMillan gave us a sneak peek at their seven must-have items for spring.
Steven Alan shirts have the ideal slim cut. This chambray ($168) works for any season, but especially as a casual layering piece for early spring.
It’s hard to find a great pair of slim-fitting chinos that are good substitutes for denim, but these Unis New York Skinny Gio in vintage khaki ($198) are made from Italian cotton twill, so they’re not too thin and are incredibly comfortable. As for the color: You can never go wrong with a solid khaki—no matter the season.
Replace that beat-up Velcro wallet with this made-in-the-USA, hand-stitched, leather tri-fold wallet ($104) by Billykirk. It’ll last a lifetime.
A heather-gray sweatshirt is a wardrobe basic for men and women. This Saturdays Surf NYC ($108) pullover is ideal for Colorado’s cool spring days.
Save Khaki makes the best T-shirt ($40) ever: super soft with a cut that’s not too full through the torso or too tight.
The awesome color blocking on this Epperson Mountaineering Climb Pack ($175) is a throwback to vintage backpacks. Plus: All Epperson gear is still made in the United States.
Hand poured in Richmond, Virginia, this Square Trade Goods Co. camp mug candle ($28) has a pleasant campfire scent (no flowery fragrances here). And the enamel mug is reusable once the candle burns down.
