King Spring

These baby-blue ‘Spillers’ by Rachael Comey are great for sock-less spring days walking your rescued mutt to the park. Also check Simples organic cotton and recycled car-tire ‘Tuba Sneaker’ for the next bamboo skateboarding session.

It takes a special kind of man to pull this off, but we think you can do it.

Paul Smith has also offered up his share of organic cotton button-downs and blazers. Known for quirky patters and unexpected pops of color – Paul’s liberated prep would look smashing in the houndstooth organic blazer and the pink, slim ‘woody creek’ shirt. You’ll find small cuffs and collars on Paul Smith shirts, something to look for in avoiding that dated, sleazy 70’s look.

Not to be left out, BOSS has been exploring some organics with this ‘Cadu’ blazer and ‘Zeppo’ jacket. We were wondering what that weird sustainability claim on the website was for – so far, these two are the only explanation I can find.  Someone should send them that toxic leather tanning memo…

    Hugo Boss actually has more organic items. I dont know if they are still in season,
    but I bought some organic cotton khakis. I know they also had some organic cotton jeans
    and a polo or t-shirt. All had a certification tag from the european certification organization- whose name i forget. Nice website you guys put together.
