It’s a rainy Thursday evening in New York as I sit down to type this post, but luckily, I’ve got plenty of memories of a sunny, amazing Florida trip to look back on this past weekend (if you follow me on Instagram, you’re well aware of the trip!). At any rate, it’s nice to be closing out a long work week on the fashion PR grind — and within the next week, I’ll be back in Michigan visiting my amazing girlfriend Laura again! If you don’t follow her blog as of yet, I’d urge you to do so; there’s something for everyone, including cool new music playlists and cool style on a budget. That brings me quite nicely to my next point — with the Fourth of July falling in the middle of next week, it’s high time you loaded up on summer style essentials for the holiday. To help with that quest, I compiled the best deals from Huckberry this week, from camping gear to new menswear. They won’t last long — count on it. Alternatively, you’d also do quite well to shop this week’s edition of The List, a shopping series that’s packed with men’s style essentials for rugged getaways and easygoing vacations alike. Lastly, if you’re struggling with what to wear for the Fourth of July, I’d point you toward our #OOTD series here on the ole blog.
- It’s time to throw on the summer shirt you didn’t know you need — the easy, versatile, breezy popover shirt. I’m in need of a stylish popover shirt myself, and this list of the best popover shirts for men from GQ.com should prove quite helpful.
- Sneakerheads, here you go — for an agreeable price, you can get sporty, lightweight summer style courtesy of the Adidas F/22 Primeknit. Learn more via my latest footwear feature for GearMoose (wink, nudge).
- Perhaps my favorite summer knit might be the trusty, rugged short-sleeve henley. There are plenty of great brands making nice iterations out there, and it’s with that spirit in mind that I wrote about the best short-sleeve henleys for The Manual this week.
- TRIWA is a new watch company — to me at least — that stands out from the pack. Quite stylishly, too. Here’s the gist: They make durable timepieces with, among other products, recycled plastic. And they’re at it again with a new launch — the TRIWA x HUMANIUM METAL Watch is a new favorite of mine (you know that if you’ve checked out my Instagram Stories this week!). Soon enough, you can get your hands on one for yourself — at least, if you pre-fund the partnership now. This tough, hard-wearing, rugged watch will be made from destructed illegal firearms and will serve as a solution to gun-related violence in conflict-torn societies — that’s pretty neat, right? Right.
That’s going to do it for me today, folks. Up next this week: Potentially, a show by revered British shoegaze pioneers Slowdive at the Brooklyn House of Vans this weekend … maybe. In the meantime, I’ll be tracking down some iced coffee, shopping for a bit of menswear, and generally enjoying life! Beer in hand, ideally.
Thanks for reading!
