Launched in 1996 as a men’s lifestyle brand selling handmade utilitarian messenger bags, Jack Spade continues a tradition of quality design. The line, launched by Andy Spade, husband of Kate Spade, now predominantly focuses on classic menswear and accessories but still maintains that same Americana aesthetic synonymous with the power couple’s products. The Cole Short ($168), featured above, perfectly captures the essence of the brand with a color-block design reminiscent of the original Jack Spade canvas bags. Made from 100-percent cotton, these updated classic shorts, paired with a T-shirt, button-down, or hoodie as shown, make for the ideal casual summer staple.
