Folks, check your calendar, check your watch or set a reminder on your phone — Labor Day isn’t too far off. What does that mean, exactly? Well, that means that summer is drawing to an end — and it also means that your shopping for men’s style essentials certainly shouldn’t be done yet. The key, as we’ve talked about this month, comes with reaching for menswear essentials to get you through Labor Day and into fall — like the Taylor Stitch Slim Chinos shown above. So, without further ado … let’s go to it!
Taylor Stitch Slim Chinos in Olive — $98
I can’t recommend the Taylor Stitch Slim Chinos enough — in this instance, the rich Olive color of these classic men’s chinos should work nicely for Labor Day weekend travel, and then dinner & drinks once you get where you’re going. My footwear suggestion? Wear ’em with the Taylor Stitch Brogues in Espresso Leather.
Sunski Yubas Sunglasses — $55
Bespoke Post Worn Box —$55
Marathon General Purpose Quartz Watch — $179.98
Outerknown S.E.A. Pocket Tee — $38
Stylish and sustainably made, the Outerknown S.E.A. Pocket Tee is an end-of-summer essential, ideal for wearing on its own with light wash denim, and even more ideal for wearing under a cotton-linen cardigan on a chilly Labor Day weekend night.
Anonymousim Anchor Jacquard Crew Socks — $20
LEMS Shoes Boulder Boots — $125
Faherty Brand Slub Cotton Hoodie — $98
Yuketen Handsewn Camp Moc in Indigo — $300

Flint and Tinder Mill Pant — $98
Grayers Eastvale Blazer — $138.98
So, my dear friends — is there a menswear essential from the above list that caught your eye for Labor Day weekend? For me, I dig the rugged, versatile style of the Yuketen Handsewn Camp Moc — ideal for pairing up with classic looks like slim light wash denim and a white slub henley. That’s all for now — enjoy the end of summer, folks!
