The Friday Read: The Men’s Health Box, Local Natives and Sofar Sounds

As I look back on this week, I’m struck by how quickly it went by — and by how I tired I am! It shouldn’t come as a shock, though — last weekend took me on the road to Pittsburgh to see Local Natives, a  stellar show and a great trip to boot. As I’ve said before, it’s always a treat to be able to travel, to see great live shows and to bring along my favorite #menswear. I’m not sure when I’ll be back on the road again — this past month already took me to New Haven to see Young the Giant — but I hope it’s soon. And until then, you can follow along on Instagram and Twitter. Of course, I won’t be going long without checking out some neat live music — I’m excited to attend my first Sofar Sounds show tomorrow! The company holds intimate, acoustic performances across NYC (and the globe), always held at a secret location and available only to a select set of approved registrants. Needless to say, I’m quite excited! However, we’ve got some menswear news to get to in the meantime, from transitional spring footwear to essential lifestyle gear. Given that we’re now past the first day of spring, I hope you’ve taken care of everything on your spring style wish list. You’ve done that, right? If not, let’s at least get a jumpstart on the weekend while we can — read on and stay stylish!

Greats

All of the essentials you didn’t know you needed — and a few fun add-ons, too.
  • Without further ado — are you looking to kickstart your lifestyle from A-to-Z? That is, from style upgrades to better nutrition and better workouts? There really is one place you can get all of this — and it’s the Men’s Health Box. Curated by the expert lifestyle purveyors at — you guessed it — Men’s Health, each box offers up everything from workout gear to menswear accessories to tech products and snacks geared toward your workout routine and an improved life in general. I can’t recommend it highly enough, and that’s why you should definitely sign up. Seriously, you get four boxes a year for $89.99, and the value of these boxes is more than $150 — so, a great deal. Oh, and you can get 20% off your first Men’s Health Box by using the offer code MHBOXMVP20. As you can see from the shot above, they really are packed with excellent, everyday essentials for making you a better man. Go to it!

  • We’re going to be getting to this site’s picks for the best light wash denim for spring in the coming weeks, but know that in the meantime,   the fellas at Esquire.com told us this week how your jeans should fit right now.
  • While we’re talking spring style upgrades, step up your footwear game with new kicks from M.Gemi — the premium Italian brand just launched the Netto Due, an absurdly beautiful set of hand-painted leather sneakers that are sharp enough to wear with a suit and versatile enough to pair with slim chinos and a casual pocket tee.  You would really do well to invest in a pair.
  • Let’s wrap this thing up early — shall we? The weekend awaits, after all. And if you need to upgrade your grooming game, take note — the Owen and Fred “You Dirty Dog” Grooming Kit should be your next buy — with everything from shaving cream to face wash, it’s three essential products designed to help you look and feel your best. Did I mention I covered it for GearMoose? Yes, indeed.

OK, onto the weekend — check back for tomorrow’s Style Pick of the Week, and have an outstanding weekend in the meantime!
