Shadowstripe Pullover

Combine a beautiful fabric with elegant styling and the result is this incredible layering sweater. This light as air sweater is made from a linen/cotton yarn that gives a practical elegance to linen. Wearing it feels dressy and special but it is durable, versatile, and resilient. It feels kittens soft and gets better each time it’s worn!

The wide scoop neck layers beautifully over a tank and the subtle stripes add just the right amount of visual depth. The body is a little more loose fitting, while the dropped sleeves are a more slender, giving it a chic, elegant styling. This was a perfect layering piece to through in when we went camping but stopped off for some tourist sightseeing and dinner. Even though we were camping and hiking I wanted something a little different than my campfire flannel!

Women’s Airbrush Long Sleeve Shirt

Lightweight and breezy this shirt is an automatic take-along! Like air held together by a few (beautiful) yearns, Airbrush is the uber-ventilator and will keep you looking and feeling cool, even as the temperature rises into the double digits! It’s nice and cool during the hot days but it also gives you the little touch of warmth in the cooler evenings.

A nicely styled collared button down with two button-flap chest pockets you can dress it up or keep it casual. The roll-up sleeve with button tab detail add to the versatility of this classic shirt.

I took it camping, I took it to the beach, I took it travelling - basically I take it everywhere!!!

Smythy Long Sleeve Shirt

There is always a place in the closet for a worn in old reliable flannel. The advantage of the Smythy is that you do not have to wait 10 years to break it in. You can take it home already soft, warm and looking good. Thanks to double buttons on the cuff, you can wear it on the outside or under a sweater with little fuss. The fabric is 100% organic cotton and never needs to be ironed. To keep it looking fresh we hung it up on the drying line after washing the mud and dust off. The Smythy has made it in to a permanent rotation and will seemingly only leave when it no longer can be called a shirt.

Roark Full Zip Sweater

The Roark made it through a lot of product testing over the fall. From raking up the leaves, attending concerts in the park, or taking a walk through a local state park. It has a perfect design for any fall or winter day. The full zip makes it easy use as a daily sweater. The merino wool is also a nice feature that makes this sweater great for everyday use—you rarely have to wash it.

The sleeves seem to be a bit longer than usual. By rolling the cuffs back, you keep your body temperature much warmer. The collar is also double knitted and provides the same warmth. The fit is good for any body shape and comes in great classic colors. So guys, grab yourself a really reliable, good looking all-around sweater.

Jaywalk Pants Men’s

Oh Horny Toad…how do you do it? The Jaywalk Pants are another great contribution to men of all different body types. Very few of us are the same shape we were in our 20s unless you are Iggy Pop. We do not recommend his lifestyle. So us men over the age of 50 look to find comfort, style, practicability and to feed our desire to feel as young as our hearts. These pants only have 2% of spandex but it makes 100% of the difference when compared to regular jeans.

The Jaywalk have a nice subtle texture that feels good to the touch. There are the basic 5-pockets and are enhanced due to the 2% spandex. We are able to move freely and without worry of splitting the backside when tying our shoes. Thank you Horny Toad from all men over the age of 50 for the Jaywalk Pants making us feel as young as we are.

Cloudcover Trench

This jacket is incredibly warm, light, and looks great! I was pleasantly surprised at how watm this jacket was for how light and slim it is. I guess I still fall victim to the idea that in order for a jacket to be warm it must be big and puffy- not true! Insulated with Primaloft, it is supremely-warm-for-its-weight, and this allows for a much more flattering fit. Adding to the flair are lovely stitched lines.

This was a great jacket for travelling. It is lightweight, packs small, is wind proof, and water resistant. The front and back hemline falls just about mid thigh and below the seat. This was great for covering my backside while sitting on busses and keeping my thighs warm while walking and biking. Squished up it made a great pillow on the plane or on long bus rides and actually fit into my side satchel when I was experiencing museums indoor attractions.

Love it for travel and everyday winter life!

Lowkey Scarf

Who doesn’t love an infinity scarf?! The lowkey scarf is made of a luxurious blend of merinio wool and cashmere. This scarf is not only great to keep you warm in these cold winter months, but it look great worn all day long, outdoors or indoors! I find myself putting it on to head out and never taking it off!

Airbrush Short Sleeve Shirt

The best way to describe the Airbrush short sleeve shirt from Horny Toad is to talk about the airy flow it has when worn. 100% organic cotton makes this whispy soft and cool all over the body. We just wore it everywhere when the sun came out. The Airbrush will quickly find its way into your summer rotation of comfy shirts. The best part is that it keeps you cool all day and when the sun goes out it looks great with jeans and jacket. Hey, sometimes it is about looking good.

Bivalent Dress

This flattering dress will instantly become a favorite for travel or every day. It has to individual layers of silky Rhumba fabric, which is an alluring and super soft blend of Tencel and linen, that fall just about the knee. With an inside layer that is fitted and an outer layer that drapes elegantly in all the right places it is incredibly comfortable and flattering. The self-fabric belt allows you to tailor the waist for an exact fit. The T-back gives it a little extra flair that makes your back and shoulders look great! It is the perfect little black dress for the on-the-go woman!

Ska Dress

This is a great summer dress, perfect for outdoor travel, for sitting in a café, for enjoying picnic, for anything the warm weather throws at you.

It has an extremely flattering feminine fit allowing a little extra room in all the right places. It has adjustable straps and a super cute belt that can be lopped singly or doubly.

Our tester especially loved the material of the dress, nice and light, extremely soft and barely wrinkles, perfect for the girl on the go!

Jovie Long Short

These are not only super cute and fashionable with wraparound front pockets and wide, angled back pockets that have a visually pleasing stitch detail, they are perfect functional travel shorts as well.

They have a hidden zipper stash at the back yoke for id, keys, money, etc. The length and fit is perfect, short and fitted enough not to hinder activity but long enough to hide those worrisome areas, allowing the only thing you need to worry about is where your next adventure will be!

Firefly Skirt

With an A-line shape and airy cotton fabric, this summer skirt is great piece for the girl who has everything and is looking for a little flair to spice up her day!

It is two-layered- the inside layer a handkerchief- weight cotton that peeks out of under the top layer displaying a sunburst appliqué.

With a draw-cord waistband that is elasticized it is comfortable everyday!

Emmylou Top

I found a great travel piece and everyday shirt in the Emmylou Top. Made of planet-friendly organic dyed cotton it feels incredible and has an extremely comfortable fit.

The heathered yarn dye is constructed with a classic collar, front and back yoke with pleat and bartack detailing, a full-button placket, two-button cuffs and a rounded hem. Thanks to these features this shirt lays perfectly, no matter what your body type and is flattering on everyone.

With the beautiful, yet subtle detailing this is a great travel shirt that can be dressed up or down, depending on your needs so you can wear it around the town and out to dinner.

Whether rolling up your sleeves engaging in your adventure or relaxing around home or the campsite, this shirt lives up to what Horny Toad does best- comfortable, functional, stylish clothing!

Smooth Henley Shirt

Three buttons and no collar are what a Henley shirt is all about at it’s core. This is designed to be relaxed in. Across the back neck seam a chain stitch is used adding nice durability. The long-staple yarn goes through a super soft wash to make that easy. The shirt just falls across your body.

The jersey knit is eco-friendly by using 100% organic cotton. The neck is rib-knit with a button placket finish in cotton fabric. The side seams have a slight twist just adding a bit of cool. This is a great piece as a base layer or on it’s own. You just can’t beat a good Henley.

Ally Shirt

A simple style with the alloy knit makes for a great shirt. It is nice and soft to wear around or out. It breathes well and fits like it was meant to be there. A crew neck, raglan sleeves and a skeleton stitch keeps it comfortable all day long.

This is a shirt I have worn a few days in a row. The heathered colors allow me to follow the care tag directions, "wear more, wash less". This is the perfect guys shirt. Versatile, easy to care for and looks good.

Accord Pant

The Accord pant is versatile pant with that slight stretch that we all love, making it comfortable as an everyday pant or travel wear. Thanks to the stretch they are extremely comfortable travel pants, whether riding on an airplane, in a car or walking around a city or town. I also found them to be functional as a day hiking pant.

The soft, mid-wale corduroy is made of organic cotton with 2% spandex and the five-pocket styling is updated with angled back pockets, brushed metal rivets and a little contrast topstitching.

They wore quite well- after % days of continuous wear and travel they looked just fresh as when I had received them- Very important for the traveler who wants the adventure but wants to look great while doing so.

As a great travel pant these can take on whatever you throw at them in your adventures as well as look fantastic for a casual night on the town.
