Pure Picks: Nathan Harris

The buyer and stylist at Pitkin County Dry Goods shares his menswear must-haves for spring.
“Summer is when Aspen truly comes to life. The same can be said for this season’s trends: bold prints, bright color, light-washed denim and loose-fitting trousers. The right blend of casual and sophisticated color is key to any outfit I style..”


“This Brooklyn-born DIY company has brought fun back to the fragrance world. My go-to is Italian Citrus. It’s the perfect mix, with citrus and a clean, musk finish.” Italian Citrus Cologne, $260/100ml, D.S. & Durga, available at Pitkin County Dry Goods, pitkincountydrygoods.com


“The Original Achilles from Common Projects has become a staple for most men. This season, I’m loving the tonal suede colorways. It’s a great take on an old classic, and one that will go well with any summer outfit.” Original Achilles suede sneakers, $425, Common Projects, available at Mr. Porter, mrporter.com


“One of my favorite things about summertime is the Saturday market. I fill my bag up with fresh flowers, local produce and all the supplies necessary for a weekend dinner party. Tip: add ice to keep wine and cheeses cold on your way to the John Denver Sanctuary for a sunset picnic.” Apolis x Pitkin County dry goods bag, $68, available at Pitkin County Dry Goods

“When I’m not in the store or traveling, you can find me riding up Red Mountain or Castle Creek. It’s a true moment of meditation to be on a bike, without interruption, to reflect on your thoughts and take in the spectacular views.” Oltre XR3 Dura Ace Mix bike, Bianchi, $5,200, available at bianchiusa.com or via ReCycle Art Aspen, recycleartaspen.com


“A refreshing dip in the Roaring Fork River is the perfect remedy after finishing up a morning hike. Known for their use of photos by the iconic Slim Aarons, these shorts are a great conversation starter.” Bulldog Roc Pool mid-length swim shorts, Orlebar Brown, $350, available at Pitkin County Dry Goods


“If you’re going to go through the sweat and pain of cycling in the Rockies, you might as well look good doing it. Based out of London, Rapha offers both functionality and design. Plus, they have stateside clubhouses in Boulder, LA and NYC.” Pro Team training jersey in black, $115, Rapha, rapha.cc
