5 Laid Back Essentials From Faherty Prove The Hype – Fatherly

Its hard to miss the sun-faded flannel shirts and garment-dyed stretch chinos and sweaters from Faherty these days. The brand has crept into the menswear zeitgeist with its chill, comfortable vibe that at the same time feels curated earning the price tag that the $78 t-shirt or $158 button-downs garner. Faherty is a hot brand and, we think, worthy of admiration.

The company is at its core a family operation. Founded by two brothers (Alex and Mike Faherty), who wanted to create the perfect board shorts. The two grew quickly, evolving into a conscious and sustainable lifestyle brand, bringing Alexs wife Kerry in as the Chief Impact Officer soon after launch.

Together they found the perfect medium for how we dress today: not too trendy nor too stuffy even with their more business casual-minded offering complete with pricier fabrics and tailored pieces, like cashmere sweaters and a line of handsome patch pocket blazers.

The basic pieces, like t-shirts and henleys, stand out in a crowd of casual-cool t-shirts and henleys thanks to small touches like garment-dyed fabric and dusty colorways, that make them more visually interesting than others in your wardrobe. But what makes them stand out or at least keeps men coming back is the quality of the products. This is clothing that is made to last shirts and pants you want to keep, youre okay with patching up, and are there with you for the long haul. But dont take our word for it: Here are a few favorites from Faherty we love enough to recommend (and wear) ourselves.

Part flannel shirt, part shirt jacket, these impossibly soft, ultra-comfortable stretch shirt hybrid are not stiff or scratchy: Its almost like wearing a T-shirt, bolstered by the utility of two front patch pockets for your everyday carry. It comes in a whopping range of colors and is easy to button up on its own or wear unbuttoned over a Faherty henley. Once you try it, you very well might want to buy one for every day of the week.

Chinos neednt be stuffy or stiff: In fact, they can be about as comfortable as sweatpants, yet with the tailored appeal of the business casual chino. The slim-straight fit of these stretch terry chinos works for most body types, while the cotton-blend fabric is extremely stretchy for ease of movement around the office and around town post-work. Three versatile, neutral colors give you the option to wear these chinos with virtually any shade of Faherty shirt for a real one-two punch of casually cool, yet polished, daily style.

The remarkable thing about Faherty menswear is how the brand manages to take pieces that can normally be a bit uptight like the blazer or the chino then turns them into surprisingly comfortable picks to wear, well, anywhere. The Reserve Blazer takes cotton, wool, and a touch of cashmere, blends it with polyester for stretch, then fashions it into a handsome patch-pocket blazer you can wear with an Oxford shirt and knit tie or else, over a graphic tee for a bit of edgy-meets-timeless style.

Fahertys surf-tinged roots make for a nice origin story, as does the fact that the company still makes a suitably retro-minded pair of board shorts. Its right in the name, after all, with a tri-stripe design that throws it back to the grand days of surfing in the 50s and 60s. The fabric is what elevates them into a modern vacation staple: Its quick-drying and made to resist wrinkles, and the 7-inch inseam should work nicely for most guys.

Before you hit the beach, equip yourself properly. Reach for a perfectly faded organic cotton pocket tee that Faherty designed specifically to call to mind vintage T-shirts youve had for years and years. The organic cotton fabric lends itself to a higher price tag, sure, but 10 color and pattern options drive home the point that this is a classic T-shirt fit for everybody.
