Whether you're finally headed back to the office or getting out of town for a long-overdue weekend getaway, your wardrobe is likely ready for a quarantine refresh. Essential wardrobe pieces ground your style with classic, clean silhouettes, but basics don't need to be boring.

Mack Weldon celebrates its ninth anniversary this year, continuing to encourage the modern man to move through life with ease. The brand's collection combines technology and design to create pieces that withstand the wear of an active lifestyle. And with our lives shifting back to the activities we love, we're ready to put it to the test. Here are seven of our favorite spring picks.

Dressed Up or Down, Never Let Them See You Sweat

The button-down gets a makeover thanks to Mack Weldon's 37.5 Oxford. The number refers to the ideal core temperature the cotton/poly fabric helps maintain by removing sweat in the vapor stage before liquid has the chance to form.

You'll look composed whether you're headed to a board meeting or a beachside date. The perfect length to wear tucked or untucked, we love that the no-iron shirt gets softer with every wash. Available in five colors, we suggest the Blue Yonder for that daytime meeting and Cava (a subtle blush pink) for a summer night on the town.

Spill-Proof and Stretchable

The chino never goes out of style, but who needs a stiff fabric when the Maverick Tech Chino harnesses the durability of a cotton/lyocell/elastane blend?

Most are familiar with cotton and elastane, but the addition of lyocell — an eco-friendly textile made from sustainable wood pulp — makes this the pant of the future. Seven pockets offer plenty of room for the on-the-go guy, while the straight leg taper looks sharp for the office or can be cuffed for a more casual look.

Sport or Spectator, You Decide

The SILVERKNIT Polo lands a hole in one, whether you're on the golf course or packing a weekender.

The classic fit features anti-odor, stretch pique fabric with just enough give to feel comfortable no matter the occasion. The addition of antimicrobial Ionic+ silver ensures that you'll stay fresh all day long, with one recent customer saying, "Hands down, the best polo I have ever owned!"

From Biking to Beers and Everything In Between

If you're looking for a go-to pant that will seamlessly transition from the day's activities to a night out, the Radius Pant is the perfect fit.

Water-, wind- and stain-resistant, you'll feel at ease on a bike or at a bar. And for a long day of travel, look no further than the comfortable flex waist and "stealth zip pocket" to ensure valuables like your phone and passport (hey, we can dream!) stay with you.

Keep Calm and Carry On

Truer words have never been spoken. Our lives continue to become more mobile, which means that we need a grab-and-go bag to handle an ever-changing lifestyle. The GTX Commuter Bag can hold whatever you're packing, including a laptop or tablet (or both), snuggly secure in its padded compartment.

The waxed canvas exterior repels the elements, while the rubber bottom can withstand a curbside toss, flexible storage in an overhead bin or unexpected spill. Available in asphalt or indigo, we love the latter for a nautical-inspired summer tote.

Who Wants Gold When You Can Have Silver?

Supima cotton infused with antimicrobial Ionic+ silver makes the Silver Trunk both luxuriously comfortable and long-lasting.

Supima is the strongest cotton in the world, and when combined with silver — used by NASA and Olympic athletes — the result is a luxe-feeling trunk that also features a no-roll waistband and cool mesh zones that can handle the heat in warmer months.

Fabric Worth Waiting For

Shirts, pants and accessories might show your style to the world, but what you wear underneath is just for you. The 18-Hour Jersey Boxer Brief is genius in its simplicity and fabrication.

The proprietary cotton-modal- stretch Lycra fabric rests for 18 hours before being cut to ensure the material has naturally expanded. The result? A super-soft, true-to-size fit. Take your pick from 23 different solids and patterns for the ultimate form of self-expression.
