The Friday Read: Glenn O’Brien, The Best V-Neck T-Shirts and Scottish Style

It’s under slightly different circumstances that we start today’s Friday Read. No mention of menswear news this week would be complete without discussing the unfortunate, sad and too-early passing last Friday of style luminary and New York City icon Glenn O’Brien. Known for everything from his long-running Style Guy column to his legendary social circle (his friends included Andy Warhol, Debbie Harry and Jean-Michael Basquiat, among others) and his time as an art and fashion critic, he really did inspire a generation of men to dress — and be — better. And his prominent role in the New York City and global fashion scenes is likely in some small part the reason this blog exists —  I vividly remember poring over his Style Guy column during late-night shifts as a journalism intern in a quite newsroom. There wasn’t quite anyone like him — even his time as an editor-at-large at Maxim these past few years proved consequential. I never did get the chance to meet him, but to see such an outpouring of amazing memories from across the entire fashion industry is quite neat — and fitting — indeed. So, with that, we’ll transition into our regularly scheduled programming with a great Esquire.com piece remembering Glenn O’Brien. Have a great weekend and be sure to catch tomorrow’s Style Pick of the Week.

  • So, spring weather is finally kicking up a notch — that’s why it’s imperative you buy one of the best V-neck T-shirts for men, as I covered for GearMoose. Ya dig? And if you need tips on how it should fit, check out my guide to casual T-shirts.
  • Speaking of casual spring style, every guy needs a stylish denim jacket this season — that’s why I’m a big fan of the classic Levi’s Trucker Jacket. Shop away, folks!
  • It might seem odd to be pivoting back to discuss rugged winter style, but the folks at Triple F.A.T. Goose are about more than just outfitting you for the weather — I caught up with the brand to discuss how to store your winter coat for The Manual.

OK, I’ll leave you to it — I hope you get the chance to kick back, relax and maybe read a few Style Guy columns. Thank you for reading, as always!
