The Friday Read: The Perfect Summer Beer, A New Huckberry T-Shirt & The Best Summer Pants

A new polo that’s anything but stuffy — courtesy of Todd Snyder — for your summer weekend.

Thanks for joining us today on the Friday Read, my friends, where we’re rounding up the best men’s style reads and picks to send you onward this weekend. But first, I’d like to acknowledge, in some small way, the ongoing events of this week. It’s a scary and troubling time to be an American, so I wish everyone safety and dignity, most importantly. I’d also like to call out some excellent Black-owned businesses to support, as covered by GQ — I stand in solidarity with these businesses and with all Americans fighting injustice.

Now, back to business with a product recommendation: The Todd Snyder Pique Polo as shown above is one of the coolest polos I’ve seen in some time, available in a breathable fabric and crucial summer colorways — it’s nothing like the stuffy polos of years past. Plus, the added benefit of wearing one of the best men’s polos on the weekend? It’s a great way to upgrade from your standard T-shirt (even if you happen to be wearing one of your favorite T-shirts). And in times like these, I’m sure we could all use a bit of a change in routine. Although things are slowly but surely getting back to normal, it still feels like (wait for it) … The New Abnormal. However, the blog rolls on, so shop your favorite summer style essentials and check out a few choice reads below in the meantime (heck, I put together a guide to 20 of the best summer style picks, if you need some place to start).

We’ve got plenty more where that came from, too (just keep on scrolling). As for me, I’m going to enjoy some downtime this weekend. It’s a bittersweet Friday, seeing as this time of year normally brings about the joyous celebration of live music that is Governors Ball in New York — I’ve seen my favorite bands and icons alike play there, from Local Natives to Phoenix to Franz Ferdinand and The War On Drugs, to name but a few. This year, stalwart indie rockers Vampire Weekend were set to be a weekend highlight. But alas, time rolls on. I’ll content myself in the meantime with some vinyl on my record player — this weekend’s pick is “The Bones of What You Believe” by CHVRCHES — and plenty of coffee, to go along with a socially distanced walk through Marine Park (that’s as solid as it gets right there!). I’ll also supplement the weekend with cocktails on-the-go from the newly reopened Sycamore. It’s my favorite spot for brews and beverages in the borough, and I’m so happy they’re back up and running. To connect with me, let me know your weekend plans on Twitter — and as ever, stay safe and thanks for reading!

OLIVERS

OK, folks. We’re not quite done with today’s Friday Read. No sir, before I let you take off for the weekend, I’m going to point you toward some of the best shorts to buy for summer via this blog post. Naturally, they’re a durable pair of field shorts from my good friends at Grayers. They’re going to take you from the trail to the grill with ease — or from lunch on your back patio to … summer beers on your back patio. Your call, friends. Either way, I hope they serve you well, and I hope you swing back through for tomorrow’s Style Pick of the Week. Until then, stay safe and strong!

Thanks for reading,

The List: Get Ready for Summer with the Best New Menswear to Buy Now

Kicked back and relaxing with the best menswear for summer, no doubt.

Welcome back to another edition of The List. Now that we’ve rounded the corner past Memorial Day and are looking out upon summer (a very different summer than normal, to be sure), maybe you’ve come to realize that, hey, you need some summer style essentials to round out your closet. So it goes — you might find yourself spending more time at home and on your back patio than at breweries and rooftop bars, but the best gear for summer is ready to help you out all the same. Let’s get going with today’s picks.

Wellen Hemp Polo — $58

Just one of the cool color options for the Wellen Hemp Polo.

Yes indeed, here’s the breezy summer polo you need now. The Wellen Hemp Polo is one of the best men’s polos to wear this season, with a laidback sense of style akin to your favorite T-shirt. Throw it on for casual evenings manning the grill at home.

Billykirk No. 521 Leather Tool Bag — $145

The well-made tool bag to haul your favorite gear.

It’s going to come in handy when you least expect it (or when you most need it).

A seriously cool short-sleeve shirt for all your summer BBQ needs.

Buck Mason Deck Shorts — $85

Stylish combination swim trunks and shorts.

Looking for the perfect pair of summer shorts? Of course you are. Buck Mason has you covered when it comes to your new favorite shorts, luckily. We’re talking cotton-nylon deck shorts that double as swim trunks, dry quickly and look great with, say, a stylish short-sleeve shirt.

Fisher + Baker Evans Shirt — $158

A breezy yet performance-minded summer shirt from Fisher + Baker.

Shall we keep it going when it comes to the best summer shirts for men? I think so.

Wear it unbuttoned atop a rugged short-sleeve henley for casual summer style.

HELM Boots Zind Natural Boots — $350

Ideal leather boots for summer (seriously).

Hear me out: Perhaps you’re like me, and you love wearing rugged leather boots any chance you get. Yes, even in the summer. Particularly with slim light wash jeans, these HELM Boots Zind Boots just get the job done. And, they’re a stylish pair of leather boots you can keep handy come fall and winter. Purchase from HELM and get $50 off your first purchase and free shipping, too. 

Taylor Stitch Slim Jeans in Green Cast Selvage — $178

Rugged selvage jeans you should buy now — and break in over time.

Bear with me: As we all spend more time indoors, now is actually a perfectly acceptable time to buy a pair of stylish selvedge denim. We’re talking plenty of indoor wear time and break-in time, and of course, Taylor Stitch knows a thing or two about making some of the best men’s jeans. You could also opt to pick up a stylish light wash denim jacket from the TS  brand. Be sure to pair ’em with your HELM Boots Zind Boots.

Super73 Super73-Z1 Lightweight E-Bike — $1,395

Perhaps the coolest way to get around town.

What do stylish selvedge denim and rugged leather boots call to mind? Perhaps hitting the road for a (socially distanced) ride? If that’s the case, you’re in luck — the Super73-Z1 Lightweight E-Bike is a remarkably affordable, efficient and seriously cool electric bike.

SeaVees Hawthorne Slip-On Sneakers — $98

The classic summer slip-ons to wear this instant.

Let’s pivot back to a more commonly seen type of summer footwear — I’m talking, of course, about stylish slip-on sneakers. Not just any slip-on sneakers, though — the SeaVees Hawthorne Slip-Ons deliver plenty of laidback California cool all summer long. Wear ’em with your new favorite summer shorts and a casual summer tee.

Ooni Gas-Fired Pizza Oven — $329

A new and seriously incredible way to make pizza at home.

You’ve got the perfect summer meal in mind, and it involves homemade pizza. But how to make it happen? The Ooni Pizza Oven, which just might be the best pizza oven for your backyard. It’s really that simple. Pick up some hot sauces at Huckberry to add some extra kick.

Grayers Bruce Stretch Dobby Slim-Fit Trousers — $110

Lightweight pants for summer in a cool colorway.

Hey, a guy’s got to put on pants every now and again, right? These stylish slim-fit trousers from Grayers, made in a lightweight and breezy fabric, are perfect to throw on with a classic white T-shirt and those SeaVees Hawthorne Slip-Ons.

Zodiac Watches Grandville Watch — $251.98

A durable, highly affordable dive watch to buy now.

There’s a reason Zodiac Watches keeps popping up on the blog, and it’s because of rugged watches like the Zodiac Watches Grandville Watch. Right now, it’s one of the most affordable watches you can buy, and it pairs easily with anything and everything in your wardrobe (including the Wellen Hemp Polo and your cotton-nylon deck shorts).

Relwen Windsurf Shawl — $125.98

The dependable summer sweatshirt to wear all evening.

If you’re lucky enough to be able to get to a beach or spend time around a bonfire, you’ve certainly noticed it can get a bit breezy. To combat those breezes from day to night in style, reach for the perfect summer sweatshirt — it’s casual, it’s rugged, and the Relwen Windsurf Shawl is as versatile as it gets.

GREATS Royale Knit — $119

Sleek, lightweight knit sneakers to wear this summer.

We talked about stylish slip-on sneakers earlier, so let’s keep it rolling when it comes to the best sneakers for summer, shall we? In this case, of the lace-up variety — the GREATS Royale Knit are a fast-selling pair of sneakers, made in a cool white-and-blue color combo from breathable knit fabric.

Olivers Apparel Convoy Short-Sleeve Henley — $98

A rugged, performance-ready short-sleeve henley for hot summer days.

What goes quite well with some of the best sneakers for summer? Why, a classic short-sleeve henley. In this case, the Olivers Apparel Convoy Short-Sleeve Henley is made with the brand’s breathable 100 percent Merino Active Jersey fabric.

New Belgium Mural Agua Fresca Cerveza — Price Varies 

This could be the perfect summer beer to try now.

One of my favorite pastimes — even in these strange quarantine times — is kicking back with a refreshing summer beer (ideally, wearing a classic short-sleeve henley!). I’ve lately been gravitating toward the crisp, refreshing New Belgium Mural Agua Fresca Cerveza (thanks to the brewery for sending!). What’s the scoop with this excellent line of summer beers? Watermelon, lime, agave and hibiscus come together in a bright and sunny beer (made in collaboration with Mexico’s Cervecería Primus). Drink this all day and keep it handy when you fire up the grill.

WhistlePig Whiskey — Price Varies 

Perhaps the best whiskey for using in a cocktail at the moment.

Now, perhaps you’re more of a whiskey guy. In that case, let me point you toward WhistlePig Whiskey and the WhistlePig PiggyBack Rye Whiskey. It’s an excellent whiskey for using in cocktails, aged for six years and offering nice spice and complexity. Of note earlier this spring, the distillery offered up some seriously rare & very cool Blend Your Own Whiskey kits, a neat way to try your hand at this nuanced form of spirit consumption & production. Doesn’t get much cooler (or more enjoyable!) than that.
Billy Reid Short-Sleeve Camp Shirt — $191.28

A cool, breezy camp-collar shirt for summer.

Let’s close things out today with a look at one of the best men’s short-sleeve shirts for summer. The camp collar shirt is a certified menswear classic, and Southern menswear designer Billy Reid has absolutely delivered one of the best camp-collar shirts your hard-earned money can buy now.
My friends, I know we once again covered an astonishing amount of the best men’s gear for summer, did we not? It’s tough for me to narrow down a favorite from the above picks, but it’s hard to go wrong with, say, a camp collar shirt or a a classic short-sleeve henley — it’s helpful that either would look great with the stylish slip-on sneakers we featured above. Let’s not forget about picks like a stylish pair of leather boots or stylish selvedge denim, either. Heck, I could also see myself living in the Buck Mason Deck Shorts and the Wellen Hemp Polo — how about you? As always, I love hearing from everyone on Twitter, so please reach out anytime. Thanks for reading, stay safe & cheers!

#OOTD: How to Wear Your New Favorite Shirt for Summer

When you want summer style that’s both inspiring and functional, you’ve sometimes got to take a new approach — that’s what Taylor Stitch has done here with one of the best short-sleeve shirts for summer via its Taylor Stitch West Winds Collection. For starters, the collection also features unique, desert-inspired artwork from artist Shane Miller, so that’s pretty darn cool. We’ll get to the classic short-sleeve shirt you need this season in just a second, but know that Taylor Stitch used the inspiration of the desert itself to craft a perfectly garment-dyed short-sleeve Oxford shirt you can rock with your favorite summer style staples. It pays to have an #OOTD that’s different than average, even in these strange quarantine times, so that’s why you’ll see we’re pairing up the Taylor Stitch Short-Sleeve Jack Shirt with cool, corresponding pieces that are anything but normal. Take a stylish light wash denim jacket and mix it up with classic men’s chinos from the good folks at Buck Mason,  then throw on some suede chukka boots — boom, there’s your next summer ensemble (for now and later). This is the type of ensemble that’s going to serve you well when you want to freshen up at home for an evening of grilling and porch beers, and it’s going to put in equal work when you head back into the outside world to fill up your favorite growler or pick up some cold brew coffee. Heck, if I were you, I’d rock the Taylor Stitch Short-Sleeve Jack Shirt  just about as often as possible in place of a T-shirt for casual-but-cool spring style. The choice, though, is up to you. How are you going to style this unique short-sleeve shirt? Check out the full look below, and feel free to get in touch with your thoughts on Twitter.

The stylish short-sleeve shirt to wear all summer — part of a new Taylor Stitch collection.

If you want to freshen up your short-sleeve shirting game this summer and perhaps add a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork to your home, turn toward the Taylor Stitch West Winds Collection — it delivers in more ways than one, starting with the best short-sleeve shirt for summer. This shirt is breezy, colorful and as easygoing as your favorite T-shirt, so feel free to pair it up with rugged style staples aplenty, like the Levi’s Trucker Jacket and Buck Mason chinos. Talk about a one-two punch, right? Yes indeed, the Taylor Stitch Short-Sleeve Jack Shirt is as cool as can be, but the whole look doesn’t work without the right accessories, from the rugged appeal of the Tanner Goods Classic Belt to the dependable durability of the Timex MS1 Maritime Sport Watch.  And even if it feels odd to put on proper footwear at the moment, a pair of classic suede chukka boots is going to prove plenty reliable now and through the summer months (and on into fall!). Keep track of all your musings and your future plans using a stylish leather journal from Billykirk, and protect your eyes from the sun with some of the best sunglasses for summer. If you haven’t yet given much thought to your summer shirting rotation, now’s the time to start. Luckily, you know just how to wear the Taylor Stitch Short-Sleeve Jack Shirt for the months ahead.

 

See Now, Buy Now: This Fisher + Baker Polo is the Best Polo for Summer

A classic, performance-minded men’s polo.

When you start searching for the best style essentials for summer but feel stumped, where do you turn? We’re digging into the menswear rolodex today to tell you all about your new favorite polo, going back to a brand I first tested in 2017 on a road trip to Pittsburgh. And hey, would you look at that — there’s Minneapolis menswear brand Fisher + Baker, back today in fine form with one of the best polos for men in our See Now, Buy Now series. If you’re new here, this series has touched on everything from the best shirt for spring and summer to a rugged indigo overshirt. That being said, we’ve only recently touched on that most critical of summer style essentials, especially in the “business up top” era of Zoom calls we live in. I’m talking, of course, about outfitting you in one of the best men’s polos, and that brings me right back to Fisher + Baker and the Fisher + Baker Kent Polo. Available in a classic range of colors (including Navy as seen above, plus Coral and Black), this is a polo that blends performance and style in equal measure. The fact that it retails for $118 and offers a heck of a lot of bang for your buck? Icing on the cake.

SHOP: The Fisher + Baker Kent Polo

A few of the details that make this polo so essential.

Made from a polyester and merino wool blend for mobility, breathability and anti-microbial properties, this slim navy polo is made with all kinds of considered details in mind (including Fisher and Baker’s Drirelease technology). Take the friction-reducing shoulder panels, providing for a smooth ride no matter whether you’re hauling your golf clubs or your messenger bag. The Fisher + Baker Kent Polo should also feel extremely soft and wear easily on hot summer days or breezy evenings. Plus, curved side seams offer a slimming effect — you can wear this classic men’s polo with everything from tan chinos and white leather sneakers to chino shorts and stylish leather loafers. No matter which color you decide to buy it in, the Fisher + Baker Kent Polo is the best men’s polo for summer to buy now — and if you don’t believe me, you should check it out yourself.

Style Pick of the Week: Levi’s Light Wash Trucker Jacket

An unstoppable trucker jacket that’s going to come to the rescue when you need it.

There comes a time on many a summer evening (weeknight, weekend, you name it) when the sun goes down and the temperature, well, plummets. Don’t get caught out in an unexpectedly chilly night — instead, wear one of the best men’s jean jackets on the planet, the iconic Levi’s Trucker Jacket. To be more specific: The Levi’s Light Wash Trucker Jacket, a seriously rugged and cool summer style essential we’ve grown to love here over the years at The Style Guide. If you follow me on Instagram, you know I can’t get enough of rugged denim jackets like this one — they’re a lightweight layering piece with room for your everyday carry essentials, and they’ve got a cool-as-heck lineage, just like Levi’s itself. It’s only fitting that Levi’s continues to produce one of the best jean jackets, period, well over a hundred years after the company patented blue jeans for miners out West — it’s ingenuity like this that’s made Levi’s a favorite brand of mine. This brand is worn by rock stars and creatives the world over  (and I love wearing my Levi’s jeans to a concert or my favorite bar), and with the Levi’s Light Wash Trucker Jacket, you can bring a bit of that casually cool style to your summer wardrobe starting today. Heck, you can even wear a classic jean jacket like the Levi’s Light Wash Trucker Jacket from day to night — if you please.

SHOP: The Levi’s Light Wash Trucker Jacket

A new staple piece in your summer wardrobe, guaranteed.

But I know what you’re thinking: Won’t I overheat during the day? Well, not necessarily. Sure, if the subway platform is over 100 degrees, then maybe (trust me, I’ve been there). But the rest of the time? Consider the Levi’s Light Wash Trucker Jacket one of the best jackets for summer you can buy right now. The denim jacket (this one is made from 100 percent cotton), crucially, isn’t as hot or stuffy as a leather jacket — it’s the perfect way to add some visual interest and just a bit of weather-minded protection to your classic summer T-shirt, for starters. And while a deep indigo blue jean jacket (also a favorite of mine) might be too much to break in during the summer months, a piece like the Levi’s Light Wash Trucker Jacket is absolutely good to go right out of the box. This iconic Levi’s jacket just gets better and better, does it not? Pair it with a breezy Oxford shirt and slim stone chinos for WFH style (just add leather loafers), or throw it on atop a slim tee with chino shorts and classic canvas sneakers for truly kicked back weekend style. And yes, you can use this as a blazer replacement atop a crisp white Oxford shirt if necessary. The point is this: When you  find one of the best jean jackets, you snap it up immediately. Now, you’re ready for chilly summer nights and classic summer days.

The Friday Read: The Best Summer Shoes, Rogue Ales & Beards for a Good Cause

Dependable high-top sneakers to wear all summer long.

Let’s start this Friday Read off right with a look at some of the best men’s sneakers, shall we? The Nisolo Cortez High-Top Sneakers are positively some of the best summer shoes you need in your rotation, and seeing as we’ve moved past Memorial Day, I’d say it’s time you geared up. You surely recognize Nisolo from the blog as makers of the excellent Nisolo Travel Derby and even a stylish weekender bag. But, seeing as we’re all staying close to home for the time being, those rugged high-top sneakers should work nicely in the interim. Now, onward and into the Friday Read. Times continue to be strange and difficult for many of us, so thank you for taking time out of your day and weekend to stop by the blog. Pressing style matters await to divert your attention, but right off the bat, I’m going to call out tge that inimitable menswear designer Todd Snyder is running a sale of up to 30 percent off on the covetable Todd Snyder x Champion line, among other items — perhaps the perfect summer sweatshirt is within your grasp via one of the best men’s style sales out there.

As for me, when I’m not dreaming about a new Todd Snyder sweatshirt for breezy summer nights, I plan on spinning some new vinyl (as usual!) — this week’s prime pick is the lovely “Vide Noir” by folk rockers Lord Huron. I’m also going to be supporting some local businesses. I recently picked up the Road House Coffee Blend from Brooklyn’s own Variety Coffee Roasters, and I’ve also got a shipment incoming of delicious, fresh craft beer from another Brooklyn staple, Threes Brewing. Of course, there’s also another Style Pick of the Week post incoming tomorrow so some writing will be on the docket, too. Be sure to join us for that, and in the meantime, here are the rest of the weekend’s top picks.

  • A brand that specializes in some of the best men’s denim might not be the first place you’d go to get a face mask during these trying times, but in fact, they could be a perfect option (think of all that useful, tough fabric). I’m talking, of course, about Fitted NYC in this case. The Williamsburg-based denim brand (as I covered for The Manual back in 2018!) is now making selvedge denim face masks — talk about style and safety rolled into one durable offering.
  • In the way of other men’s style brands making face masks, get a load of what cool-as-can-be style purveyors Faherty Brand are doing. They’ve got a selection of surprisingly stylish face masks (non-medical grade) for you to wear when out and about — that’s in addition to their excellent collection of cozy, comfortable Work From Home style essentials they’re also making.
  • Ever felt like growing out a beard and really going for it? Perhaps you’re doing something similar now, in fact? What if I told you that you could grow out your beard & donate toe a good cause in the process? For my friends in Pennsylvania in particular, the Abington Interfaith Food Cupboard has been working with the previously beardless Drew — our man Drew’s been growing out his beard, and a $10 donation to Drew’s Beard Challenge gives you the chance to vote on what happens next with his beard … and he’s got to keep it that way for five days. How could you not want to pitch in on that?? Donate here via Supportful.

  • Let’s pivot to some of the best craft beer for your weekend imbibing, shall we? West Coast-based Rogue Ales & Spirits  is rising to the occasion to meet the demands of thirsty consumers who can’t visit its physical locations. They’re now shipping beer to Oregon, Washington D.C., Nebraska, Ohio and Nevada, while also offering free beer & spirits delivery in the Portland, Oregon area. And you can also pick up your beer from one of its Oregon locations —  or  use this tracker to find it in all 50 states! Pretty great news all around, right? Cheers.

OK, let’s close things out right with one last feature before your weekend starts (or continues) in earnest. The right summer shirt is crucial to have on hand. While your rugged flannel shirting has long been stowed away, consider keeping a stylish denim shirt close at hand. In particular, check out the Buck Mason Vintage Denim Shirt via this blog post. If you do pick it up, feel free to let me know on Twitter. Alright, that’s all I’ve got. Stay safe and stay strong, folks!

See Now, Buy Now: The Western Rise Evolution Pants are Summer’s Perfect Pants

The best adventure pants — and the best pants to wear at home.

Editor’s note: This post is sponsored by Western Rise and contains affiliate links, from which a commission might be earned. All opinions are my own. Thanks for supporting brands that support The Style Guide! 

Have you long been in search of, let’s say, the best men’s pants for summer? It’s a tricky bar to clear, especially if you want pants that really can do it all. We’re talking pants you can wear to work from home, to lounge around the house and to get out & about on socially distanced adventures (as seen above). It’s impossible to find a versatile pair of pants that check all those boxes, right? Wrong. The Western Rise Evolution Pants, as the headline so sagely calls out, are going to become your new go-to pants this season, and they’re here not a moment too soon. Now, if you read the blog (or follow along on Facebook or Twitter), then you know that  Western Rise makes standout gear for the guy on the go, from essential travel pants to a versatile performance flannel shirt. Crucially the Western Rise Evolution Pants fall within that same wheelhouse — durable, high-quality, ever-versatile and seriously stylish. Again, they’re the perfect pants for summer. I’ve been testing out my own pair (as you might have seen on my Instagram), and I can’t recommend them enough.

SHOP: The Western Rise Evolution Pants 

One of six colors in which you’ll find these exceptional pants.

Let’s start with the quality construction of these dependable everyday pants. Nylon  Supplex® is truly some next-level stuff, using air-texturized nylon fibers spun into a lightweight, durable, stretchy pair of pants that look like your favorite chinos and perform just as well as your favorite hiking pants. The Western Rise Evolution Pants really are something else — the lightweight construction alone makes them well-suited for days at the home office and on your patio, but it gets better. They’re  both anti-wrinkle and stain-resistant, and you can pick them up in no less than six highly stylish colors (including Olive, Blue Grey and Khaki). To make matters even better: They come equipped with a hidden back zipper security pocket  to keep your everyday carry safe. It’s not an exaggeration to say that the Western Rise Evolution Pants go far above and beyond what you’d expect a typical pair of pants to provide. Plus, they’re sleek and reasonably priced — when you consider all that you’re getting out of ’em. These are the kind of pants you can rock with a T-shirt and suede chukka boots as readily as you can pair with, say, a Western Rise merino shirt or performance-minded polo. And when you really want to get out there and hit the trail? Go with a rugged henley and tough hiking shoes — the Western Rise Evolution Pants are assuredly up to the task — you might even want to consider getting more than one pair (no, you should definitely consider that).

Details make the difference here from Western Rise.

It’s also tough to find a pair of USA-made pants these days, and yet, Western Rise has managed to pull off that tricky feat with these durable everyday pants. Small touches like YKK zippers amp things up a notch, as do sturdy rivets — these aren’t stiff like canvas work pants, though (as to be expected from such a versatile and innovative fabric). See, I told you it gets better, right? To sum things up: These are your new favorite pants. Buy them now, then wear accordingly the rest of the season (and heck, the rest of the year).
