These shoes are simple and functional; just what every guy needs in his life. You can find these special edition shoes for just under $70 at our favorite Portland shoe store, Solestruck.
10. Twill shorts
RVCA “Marrow” short III
Of course, guys are definitely going to need a pair of twill shorts for Spring. While denim is a good go-to option, it’s nice to have a regular twill pair in a good neutral color. These shorts by RVCA are available at our shop right now, but hurry cause they’re going fast!
