The List: Stay Stylish and Cool with these Summer Menswear Picks

Take a quick look around you — it’s still summer, folks. And even in these overwhelmingly hot & long days, it still behooves you (yes behooves you!) to shop for, wear, use and try out as many summer style essentials as you can. It makes sense, then, that the focus in today’s edition of The List centers around versatile, tough gear — from classic men’s boots to a refreshingly crisp and flavorful IPA to a new pair of stylish summer sneakers that’ll take you from point A to point B. OK, so without further ado … let’s get to it!

Flint and Tinder Slub Pocket Tee — $29
The classic navy tee that you’ve been waiting for.

Looking for a stylish pocket tee to wear on the weekends (and perhaps to the office under a lightweight blazer)? The Flint and Tinder Slub Pocket Tee checks all the right boxes: Excellent fit, quality fabric and the sort of easygoing versatility you only get with a classic navy T-shirt.

Bespoke Post Hair Care Kit — $86
Everything you need to keep your ‘do looking very fresh this season.
Just as essential as staying cool in the summer heat? Keeping your hair on-point. The Bespoke Post Hair Care Kit is an A-to-Z approach to doing just that.
Viberg Service Boots — $690 (Huckberry Exclusive)
Exceptional leather boots from an exceptional brand.
We mentioned above that we’d be talking about the stylish leather boots in which you should invest now — although we’re in the dead of summer, I’d wager you’re going to be very glad you bought the Viberg Service Boots when fall rolls around.
Zodiac Titanium Super Sea Wolf Watch — $1,295
Beautiful, dependable and astonishingly high-quality.
Dropping a grand on an investment-worthy watch like the Zodiac Titanium Super Sea Wolf isn’t feasible for all of us … but hey, can’t a guy dream?
Filson Feather Cloth Short-Sleeve Shirt — $68
Rugged, tough, dependable — everything you could want from Filson.
As all-American and summer-friendly as can be, this pleasingly rugged Filson short-sleeve shirt has been a favorite of mine these past few weeks — I’ve worn it with dark denim and classic suede chukka boots just as easily as it’s been paired with laidback light wash denim and white canvas sneakers.
SeaVees Hermosa Plimsoll in Railroad Stripe — $62.98
SeaVees
A neat pattern and low-profile design make these sneakers a summer must-have.
I’m always an advocate for comfortable, affordable and well-made sneakers — the SeaVees Hermosa Plimsoll checks those boxes quite nicely, my friends.
Penfield Lassard Shirt — $76.98
Your next summer shirting move.
The camp-collar shirt continues to make a serious comeback, and the Penfield Lassard Shirt might just be the epitome of a stylish retro-inspired shirt, what with a neat print and breezy midweight cotton construction.
Leatherman Skeletool KB Pocket Knife — $25
Perhaps the best pocket knife on the market, and a Huckberry exclusive, to boot.
Granted, I’m not a big camping guy or one who frequently loads up with outdoor gear — yet, I do love me a good hike through Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, and I also appreciate the handy utility brought by the durable, well-crafted Leatherman Skeletool KB Pocket Knife. Better yet, this Leatherman pocket knife is a Huckberry exclusive.
American Giant Roughneck Shorts — $79
Well-crafted shorts that pack a serious punch in terms of style and versatility.
If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’ve been traveing a fair amount this summer. And what essential pair of summer shorts have I brought with me? The American Giant Roughneck Shorts. The blend of tough Richochet cotton canvas and stretch fabric, plus a tailored fit, plays nicely with all manner of summer essentials.
Upslope Brewing Citra Pale Ale — Price Varies
Cheers to summer, my friends. A job well-done by Upslope.
Last but not least … y’all know I love a great craft brew, right? If you find yourself out West in Colorado, you’d do well to track down some beer from Upslope Brewing. A Certified B Corporation dedicated to protecting the environment and meeting stringent quality and production standards, Upslope has done quite the nice job with its Citra Pale Ale, which I’ve had the chance to test out over these past few weeks. Cheers!

OK, my friends. I’m curious to know — which of the above summer style essentials are you digging? I positively love the Viberg Service Boots — that’s all there is to it. Let me know on Twitter! And thanks for reading, as always.
