Jack Spade is the perfect line for the man who likes functional yet sophisticated clothing and accessories. Kate Spade’s husband Andy, who is the brother of actor David Spade, founded the line. The brand has since been sold, but Andy was the chief designer for many years. While the label is no longer the sole reflection of the founder, it still remains true to his original vision. Here are some of our favorite clothing and accessory items from this season.
Bridgton Henley T-Shirt
While most of the label’s clothing is on the dressier side, Jack Spade has also nailed down casualwear. Inspired by the uniform of rowers in Henley-on-Thames, England, the Bridgton Henley T-shirt shows that sporty can still look sharp. This shirt also feels as good as it looks because it is made of a stretchy, moisture-wicking, yet breathable fabric. Available in charcoal and navy, it will compliment jeans or even athleisure pants.
Ashland Gingham Dot Shirt
Do you like gingham? Do you like polka dots? What about combining them into one super stylish shirt? Made from 100% cotton, the Ashland Gingham Dot Shirt is the best of both worlds. Wear it, and don’t take yourself too seriously.
Grannis Graph Check Swim Trunks
No matter what climate you live in, every man needs at least one good pair of swim trunks. Even if you are not planning on hitting the beach or pool anytime soon, if you see a pair you like, buy them anyway. In a few months, you will be happy you did. These Grannis Graph Check Swim Trunks are so smart-looking. They are also versatile and can be worn in the place of shorts with a plain white or even navy blue T-shirt or polo. While many swim trunks are loud or overly patterned, Grannis Graph does not have to try too hard to look terrific. Featuring an elastic waistband and drawstring as well as an interior mesh lining, they will stay comfortable in or out of the water.
Warren Fit Wool Micro Design Suit
The Warren Fit Wool Micro Design Suit is a true necessity. Every man looks sharp in grey. Made of 100% wool, the classic style is a must-have that works with just about any shirt-and-tie combination.
Thompson End-On-End Tattersall Dress Shirt
Plaid dress shirts can often look too casual. However, the Thompson End-On-End Tattersall Dress Shirt takes plaid to a more formal level. Wear it with a suit or dress pants. This 100% cotton, classic fit shirt is a bright addition to any wardrobe.
Barrow Leather Messenger Bag
Like Kate Spade, Jack Spade was originally conceived as an accessories line. One of its newest pieces is the Barrow Leather Messenger Bag. Available in black, brown, green, and navy, the safiano leather is durable with its water-resistant coating, but also on trend. Buy more than one because you will want to use it every day.
Barrow Leather iPad Air 2 Folio Case
Protecting your iPad is incredibly important. You do not want to shatter that screen. The Barrow Leather iPad Air 2 Folio Case is vinyl, but only you will know that because of the safiano texture. It is also more affordable than leather. The folio design is a great alternative to the typical covers or sleeve styles. This accessory is the perfect compliment to the Barrow Messenger Bag.
13-inch Laptop Case
Most laptop cases lack style. However, this one case has it in spades. The grey version of this case is made from a Tech Oxford material and the navy is made from Luggage Nylon. A front pocket makes this accessory extra functional.
