If you have an outdoorsy, travel-ready, adventure-seeking guy in your life (or are one yourself), if you don’t yet know about Ećoths, you’re missing out. This men’s line from Aventura Clothing focuses on comfortable, practical clothing, most of which is organic cotton and soft as butter. I know guys who don’t care one iota what they’re wearing, but even they look for the Ećoths label, knowing comfort lies within.
This fall, the guys in my life love the following:
Oliver jogger: This fair trade pant is teen-approved (yes, really!) made of organic cotton with just enough stretch to be the lounge pant of choice at home as well as on the road. You get a zippered security pocket on the side, which is a nice touch in a jogger, large enough to hold your phone, plus two back pockets and two large slash pockets at the front. The inseam is 32 inches, and it sells for $69 on the Aventura/Ećoths website in black (which is more of a charcoal color, we found).
Ward LS shirt: It’s not quite a shirt-jac, but close. The Ward is an organic cotton/poly fleece that’s thick enough to stand alone as a light jacket. You get the warmth of a fleece with the tailored look of a button-up shirt. Or in other words, as my teen puts it, ‘it looks dressy but isn’t’. The double chest pockets with button-through closure and double button cuffs definitely add that something special. You can pick it up for $72. The midnight navy and light green ‘duffel bag’ color are both brushed, with a heathered look.
Sullivan shirt: Who doesn’t need a few classic layering pieces? The Sullivan has a single breast pocket and fun contrast stitching, but is primarily a great shirt to layer under a flannel, shirt-jac, or fleece. It’s organic cotton and super soft and light, and comes in seal brown or graphite for $49.
