15 Things Every Guy Should Buy NOW!!!

"Good clothes open all doors," or so said 17th-century English historian Thomas Fuller, and when it comes to warm-weather dressing, we think dudes should take a page from Fuller's 400-year-old book. Indeed, as the temps edge toward sandals-and-shorts levels, guys need to remember that just because it's getting sweaty, there's no need to get sloppy. On that note, we've checked out all the wares at our fave local boutiques to compile a list of spring things that should live in every man's closet come April. From a limited-edition tote to an insanely inexpensive "Herm├Ęs" T-shirt, our selection of sartorial goodness will ensure that velvet ropes need not apply.
