The Friday Read: New York Fashion Week, Huckberry x Danner & Revtown Denim

Lace up your boots and hit the road this weekend.

Now, the question on your mind today should be: What stylish leather boots am I going to wear this weekend? And where will they take you? When you lace up a pair of boots like the Thorogood Dodgeville Boots, you can really go just about anywhere on this fine February weekend. So, let’s get down to business. We’re capping off a busy whirlwind of a week here in NYC — things really took off in earnest on Monday, as I attended New York Men’s Day, an initiative designed to showcase emerging designers as part of New York Fashion Week (one of my favorite times of year, assuredly!). Things kept rolling with a busy double bill on Monday night, as lauded American menswear designer Todd Snyder (my menswear hero!) showed his excellent Fall/Winter 2019 collection to kick off NYFW. Naturally, the evening was followed by quite the afterparty!

Other activities throughout the week included the Grungy Gentleman Fall/Winter 2019 runway show, a collection of athleisure-heavy, sport-inspired gear blended with tailoring (think French terry blazers and slim jogger sweatpants). It’s with all of that behind me that I’m very much looking toward a relaxing weekend in Brooklyn and Manhattan. On the docket for me — besides quite a few cups of coffee and some tasty craft brews — is a concert by NYC indie singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten, in support of her excellent January album “Remind Me Tomorrow” — the fact that it’s taking place on Saturday, and at the historic Upper West Side Beacon Theatre is icing on the cake! So, that’s the rundown of things in my neck of the woods. I’ve got some more menswear writing to do in the meantime, but for now, enjoy the best men’s style news of the week.

  • Stop searching for your next pair of denim — I think I found it, and I think they come from Revtown. I covered this versatile, durable denim brand (based in the Rust Belt cities of Pittsburgh and Baltimore) for The Manual, so you’d do well to dive into why the brand is making your new favorite pair of jeans.
  • It’s never too late to start the hunt for the best sneakers for spring — just like the pair I wrote about recently! Grab the Huckberry Vintage Trainers now, then keep them handy when it warms up!
  • Speaking of the best new menswear, I’d urge you to act quickly — very, very quickly — to get a pair of the excellent new Huckberry x Danner Vertigo 917 Goldrush Boots, which I wrote about for Effortless Gent last month. As great as it gets for winter, assuredly!

Still not finished with your pre-weekend reading or shopping? We’ve got just what the doctor ordered — start with the best new chukka boots to buy now. Or, keep things cozy and laidback with a classic henley from Faherty Brand. Last but not least, go for rugged, classic style with the Todd Snyder x Champion line and the Todd Snyder x Champion Crewneck Sweatshirt. That’s all I’ve got for you today — cheers & enjoy the weekend!
