SS15 Lookbook by Performance Menswear Brand Parker Dusseau

View all 6 Photos

For spring and summer of 2015, the performance menswear brand Parker Dusseau is offering three lightweight styles for warm-weather adventures. The collection includes a versatile pair of shorts and two casual tops, each classically styled yet crafted from technical materials. Designed and manufactured in San Francisco, the clothing is made right on Mission Street and speaks to the active lifestyle one might expect of an urban gentleman.

Ready for exercise and leisure alike, the All Around Short is crafted from 4-way stretch nylon for flexibility, strength, and simplicity. The everyday style features a gusseted crotch for increased mobility, making this a great item to wear while running or biking. Outfitted with ultralight nylon ripstop pockets, a secure thigh pocket, and YKK performance zippers with locking rubber pull-tabs, the design also keeps one’s personal belongings safe while on the move. Minimalist-chic too, the mid-length short comes in a dark shade of gray and is finished with a single brushed metal tack button from Italy. ($135)

The 100% Merino Tee is a perfect match for the All Around Short. Made of pure, 18.9-micron merino wool, the t-shirt naturally regulates temperature and odor. The fabric is soft and stretchy, and the sporty design can be worn a size down for a next-to-skin base layer. Practical and flattering, the slim-cut shirt is made with a forward shoulder seam to prevent backpack chafing, reflective collar detailing for cycling safety after dark, and a non-ribbed neck for itch-free wear. The athletic essential is now available in four shades of blue and gray. ($80)

A slightly more structured option, the 100% Merino Polo is an ideal choice for traveling. Like the 100% Merino Tee, the polo is made of 18.9-micron merino wool so that it resists heat, cold, odor, and itch. The comfortable top can be rocked as a slim-cut standalone or sized down and worn as a base layer. Either way, the design has a forward shoulder seam and reflective collar detailing for comfort and safety while on the go. Finished with rubber buttons, the design is shatter-proof, lightweight, and ready to face the tennis court and the beach party alike. The breezy style also comes in four shades of blue and gray. ($110)
