Black jeans and luxury sneakers for a day in the city. I'm loving this Uniqlo x Lemaire boatneck tee - it's a heavier cotton than most summer tees, but I like the more structured silhouette as compared to a light, drapey shirt. For a taller guy with an athletic build, the combination open neck-slouchy shoulders could not be a better fit. The chest panel detailing is just an added bonus.

Shame I can only wear it for another few weeks. That "heavy cotton" bit from earlier? Probably wouldn't work in 95 and humid. But for now, this is my mild weather go-to, and paired with black jeans/sneakers, makes for an excellent "late spring" fit and feel.

Oh yeah: and about those black shoes. Today was the first wearing of my new Common Projects BBall Highs. Shoe detail pics are above. I'll write up some longer initial impressions later, but man, are these good. Like, sneakies-level good. I can't wait to break them in more.
