Spring is almost here (finally!), and the first order of business is stowing away those heavy wool coats and breaking out lighter outerwear suitable for cool nights and the occasional spring shower—the best of which comes from Patrik Ervell, a multiple CFDA-award nominee and this year’s contender for GQ’s Best New Menswear Designer. His hooded Air Jacket Pullover ($460; patrikervell.com) is water-resistant and features open gussets for ventilation as well as a drawstring waist for an adjustable fit. It’s stylish, functional and comfortable. We like to pair it with Ervell’s simply handsome leather Daypack ($600)—think of it as the sophisticated grown-up version of your favorite backpack—which is perfect for storing all the necessities while running around the city. Another hit from the emerging master of minimalism.
