Don’t waste any more time gearing up for the weekend, because style essentials like the Taylor Stitch Summit Shirt (it’s on sale here!) are going to help. That’s the focus of today’s Friday Read, at least — dressing in peak winter style with rugged shirting from Taylor Stitch, then adding a few extra touches (like one of the best men’s bomber jackets — more on that in a second). The Summit Shirt (as seen above) featured a durable wool-poly waffle knit & is part of the brand’s run of new outerwear, so you can be sure it’s up to snuff. How else are you dressing for the weekend? And what’s on your agenda? For me personally, I’m excited to check out a bit of a different show here in NYC than I’m normally used to attending. Two college friends from my time at Michigan State will be in town to see “The Waverly Gallery” by acclaimed director Kenneth Lonergan — it should be a very touching, moving performance. And again, it’ll be a bit different than the rock shows I frequent!
- We’re also looking forward to exploring Prospect Park in Brooklyn, having a cup or two (or three?) of excellent coffee, and perhaps even tracking down a cold beer from Manhattan’s newest brewery, Torch & Crown Brewing Co.! The new brewery is distributing two styles across beer bars in Manhattan (an IPA and a lager) — it’s exciting stuff. While brewing has been thriving in Brooklyn, Queens and The Bronx, it’s hit a major lull in Manhattan itself — until now. Follow along on my Instagram to see how these beers taste, and to see what one wears to a grab a beer and then head to a Broadway play. Cheers to the weekend, and cheers to today’s Friday Read!
- The bomber jacket is an underrated style move in the winter months, when everyone seems to be reaching for thick parkas. But if you’ve read my post on The Manual on the best men’s bomber jackets, you know that’s not the case. And if you haven’t read it yet? It’s time to get caught up!
- Let’s talk more about the best of the best in terms of men’s style essentials, shall we? Namely, it’s been a busy week of menswear writing around these parts, which is how I also found myself writing about the best blazers for men — a piece I penned yet again for The Manual. You could do worse than upgrading your office style this month, my friends.
- Once more, you could use a new dress watch — yes? Luckily for you, I covered the top dress watches to buy now for GearMoose. Between your new bomber jacket, your new blazer and a new dress watch, you’re going to be all set this winter.
Before we let you go for the weekend, I’ll leave you with this post on the best new leather wallet to buy now. What’s more, I’ll also point you in the direction of the 12 best style upgrades (yes, 12!) to keep 2019 rolling. Oh, and one last thing: This stylish field jacket belongs your back as you fight a chilly winter. OK, that’s a wrap — feel free to check in with me on Twitter if you’ve got any feedback on the blog. Have a great weekend, folks!
