The first full week in June (always pleasing when a month starts on a Monday, right?) is in the books — pretty wild, yes!? My weekend plans include a little swing by Governors Ball on Sunday — really hoping the forecasted rain holds off! Have you laid out your weekend plans yet? If it includes in any online shopping, head here for some recent entries from menswear’s digital realm. And if it includes some light reading, check out what’s on tap below.

  • The ever-vigilant and always solid crew at Dappered waded through the #menswear madness that is the 2015 Mr. Porter Summer Sale and rounded up a list of affordable, heritage-focused picks.
  • Speaking of expensive menswear pieces, Brad Bennett of Well-Spent offers his picks for what he’d rather buy this month with rent money.
  • The Wall Street Journal takes an anecdotal approach as to why the band-collar shirt is this summer’s must-have style pick-up for stylish dudes.
  • Long Read of the Week: Stepping outside the realm of men’s style and fashion (for once), writer Adam Weymouth of Narratively takes us inside his life living afloat (literally) on the waterways of London.

Chomping at the bit for more menswear musings?
