It has been unseasonably warm for much of the country so far in 2012, and that means it’s time to talk about Spring and Summer Patagonia clothing! We’re going to launch a special 3-day Patagonia sale very soon, but we can’t say what day it will start; sign up for an email notification and be the first to know about these great deals before they’re gone!

In the meantime, these are our top 10 Patagonia men’s clothing choices for this year. Many of these are perennial favorites, so read on if you’d like to see what Patagonia brings to the table for the warmer months.

 


1. Patagonia A/C Shirt

Patagonia A/C Shirt

Here in the hazy, hot and humid Southeast U.S., the A/C shirt is a Rock/Creek best-seller every single year. It’s easy to see why: the open-weave, 100% organic cotton fabric is so lightweight and breathable, it’s like an air conditioner for your skin. This is our #1 choice for visiting somewhere tropical… or just living someplace that feels tropical for a few months per year!

 


2. Patagonia Stand Up Shorts

Patagonia Stand Up Shorts (5″ inseam)
Patagonia Stand Up Shorts (7″ inseam)

Patagonia Stand Up Shorts are an everyday summer classic, and our best-selling short year in and year out. Made from a tough, hard-wearing organic cotton canvas, these look better and better as you break them in. Available in two inseam lengths to suit your preference; double fabric in seat.

 


3. Patagonia Go To Shirt

Patagonia Go To Shirt

The name says it all — this will be your go-to option. A great slim fit, 70/30 blend of organic cotton and polyester, and no need to iron means the Go To Shirt is comfy enough for all day wear but still looks good enough to meet your girlfriend’s parents for dinner. Absolutely perfect for traveling; lightweight and breathable with a stylish drop-tail hem.

 


4. Patagonia Puckerware Shirt

Patagonia Puckerware Shirt

The Patagonia Puckerware Shirt is a crinkled-finish poly/cotton blend. Why the “puckered” weave? Because it sits off of the skin, allowing air to circulate comfortably and sweat to dissipate. The Puckerware Shirt will get you through the dog days of summer or that bucket-list trip to the equatorial rain forest. No ironing, ever; dries fast enough to sink-wash.

 


5. Patagonia Wavefarer Board Shorts

Patagonia Wavefarer Board Shorts
Patagonia Wavefarer Board Shorts – Long (23″)
Patagonia Wavefarer Board Shorts – Short (19″)

The gold standard in quick-drying, lightweight, chafe-proof board shorts for those of us who spend our summers in and out of the water. 21″ version hits just below the kneecap, with 19″ and 23″ options. Available in literally dozens of colors!

 


6. Patagonia Adze Jacket

Patagonia Adze Jacket

The perfect spring jacket, windproof and comfortable without sacrificing breathability or range of motion. We like the Adze Jacket so much, we wrote extensively of its virtues earlier this season when it first arrived! Equally suitable as an everyday jacket for cool weather or a windbreaker for shoulder-season peak bagging.

 


7. Patagonia Squeaky Clean Polo

Patagonia Squeaky Clean Polo

Patagonia’s take on the classic cotton polo shirt, with organic cotton and a single patch pocket. Our customers rave about the great fit! This is a truly versatile short-sleeve shirt, as comfortable as a tee but with a collar so you don’t look like a total dirtbag. With so many color options, just pick 3 or 4 and you’ll look great all summer. Updated collar and buttons.

 


8. Patagonia Baggies Shorts

Patagonia Baggies Shorts (5″ inseam)
Patagonia Baggies Shorts (7″ inseam)

The do-everything short for summer: hike to the crag, climb a bit, hit the swimming hole, hike back out and fall asleep in a hammock without ever changing your shorts. Up for doing anything… or doing nothing at all! Casual fit, elasticized waistband, and self-draining front pockets.

 


9. Patagonia Fezzman Shirt

Patagonia Fezzman Shirt

The Fezzman Shirt is a simple, plain weave, regular fit short-sleeve shirt for all of your travels. Essentially the regular fit version of the Go To Shirt, this classic button-up resists wrinkles, looks presentable, dries quickly and goes with just about anything: blue jeans, a pair of shorts, a weekend barbecue or a trip to the beach. Lightweight and cool-wearing, with a shirt-tail hem.

 


10. Patagonia Torrentshell Jacket

Patagonia Torrentshell Jacket

Spring, of course, means spring rains, so beat the April showers with this smartly-designed, very affordable rain jacket. Simple and durable the Torrentshell is Patagonia’s take on the “$100 or so” rain shell, with the attention to detail you expect from the brand: pit zips, a stowaway hood, microfleece around the chin, well-taped seams and an unbeatable warranty.
