Does it feel strange to be barreling through September and looking toward (gulp) October? It seems to me like it was just yesterday we were talking about the best menswear to close out summer, doesn’t it? At any rate, we’re well and truly in full-on fall prep mode. I’ve got a couple exciting early fall men’s style features in the works for GearMoose and The Manual for which I’m really PUMPED about (yes, PUMPED). More on that soon. And in the meantime, I’m very much looking forward to taking an evening flight back to Pure Michigan to see my lovely fiancée Laura. We’ve got a relaxing weekend on tap, one no doubt fueled by iced coffee and perhaps a trip to the new Founders Brewing Detroit Taproom — what about you? If you need to shop for fall style essentials, this blog has you covered. If you simply want to find your new favorite pair of denim, again, your trusty friends at The Style Guide are here to help. And if you’re just looking for something to read or peruse? Again, check out the latest Friday Read. Thanks for being along for the ride!
- I’ve written often about the stylish, essential menswear being made by my San Francisco-based buddies at Taylor Stitch. That’s certainly the case with the Triblend Tee in Grey, an easy base layer for fall when paired with everything from a classic chambray shirt to a denim trucker jacket. To learn more, you should head to my latest GearMoose post.
- Early fall is all about making your favorite pieces of menswear work for you — thus, this #OOTD covering how to layer for fall. We could all use a bit of a refresher every now and then going into a new season, but I know this — if you start from the ground up with rugged boots like the Red Wing Iron Ranger, you’ll be in good shape. Ya dig?
- My buddies at The Manual always keep things sharp and in line when it comes to your everyday carry essentials — and their post on the best men’s wallets is no different. Keeping your cards handy no matter what will only help you this fall — trust me on that.
- Last but not least, here’s a bit of music news for you — if you haven’t yet checked out the emotive, powerful indie rock being put out by Lindsey Jordan in Snail Mail, well, here’s my recommendation. Simply put, Snail Mail’s debut album, “Lush,” is just excellent. In fact, you can hear it coming to a venue near you soon — Snail Mail just extended their tour recently. Get on board, plug in and rock out.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, brings us to the conclusion of another Friday Read. You can be sure we’re gearing up for a great weekend — and a great Style Pick of the Week tomorrow, no less. Still in need of something to read? This #OOTD shows you how to wear a chambray shirt. Heading to a weekend rock concert? Dress like this. OK, folks — that’s all I’ve got. Cheers!
