First things first: As we move into August, we’re going to keep emphasizing the sort of “any-season” men’s style essentials that’ll put in just as much work now as they will come September and October. That goes, of course, for a great pint of beer — that’s never out of season. Hence, the new Huckberry x Mikkeller collaboration highlighted above and, well, down below. Let’s get to the best menswear essentials out there — bottoms up.
Flint and Tinder Bone Button Western Shirt — $128
The fine folks at Flint and Tinder continue to deliver the goods in terms of standout style. This rugged, edgy and versatile Bone Button Western Shirt is going to take you through August into September with ease.
Huckberry x Mikeller Blue Hour — $15/4-Pack
Here’s the brew you first saw at the top of the page — but there’s a catch. This amazing-looking Huckberry x Mikeller Blue Hour Gose is only available in California … BUT, the rest of the Huckberry x Mikeller Collection, including stylish koozies and art, can be had via Huckberry NOW.
Timex MK1 Aluminum Chronograph Watch — $99
A tough NATO strap watch is the versatile, stylish casual timepiece you need now — wear it with a slub white tee and navy chino shorts, then keep it on your wrist to team with indigo denim and a grey crewneck sweater later this year.
Wolverine 1000 Mile 1940 Boots — $415
You get a heck of a lot of bang for your buck when you buy this particular pair of Wolverine 1000 Mile 1940 Boots, including leather creme and conditioner, plus the requisite shoe care gear. Certainly, these are a pair of stylish leather boots to buy now and wear all through fall.
Faherty Brand Short-Sleeve Stitch Stripe Henley — $98
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen this rugged indigo henley in action. From the pleasing stripe pattern to the rich indigo color, it’s a no-brainer to wear on its own this August, then layer up with come fall.
Wild Standard Flags — Prices Vary
CIVIC Merino Socks — $22.50
Flint and Tinder Crossback Work Shirt in Denim Indigo — $138
Mollusk Surf Shop Faded Navy Chinos — $98
Slim navy chinos, particularly the ones shown from Mollusk Surf Shop, are going to be a go-to now with a white Oxford and suede chukka boots, and then they’re going to work equally well with a grey cardigan later this year.
Tracksmith Horizon Tee — $42
For those who value looking stylish on morning or evening runs, the Tracksmith Horizon Tee is for you. Just the right blend of retro style and modern performance.
So, my dear friends — which of these menswear essentials do you like the best? I’d personally love to get my hands on anything from the Huckberry x Mikeller Collection — especially that much-coveted beer!
