We’re going to jump right into today’s list of the best men’s fashion picks by checking out a seriously rugged, adventure-ready bag from Filson — the Tin Cloth Excursion Bag, to be more specific. You’re going to love it. Heck, sometimes, the right bag can be an easy way to upgrade the rest of your style — after all, you want to step up the rest of your outfit accordingly, right? The rest of today’s picks also feature something for everyone, from a peek at Topo Designs x The National (that’s right!) to the best leather Chelsea boots your money can buy. Let’s dive in below.
Filson Tin Cloth Excursion Bag — $425
See, I told you that you’d love the first pick in today’s post. Featuring beastly construction and the sort of attention to detail you’d expect from Filson, the Tin Cloth Excursion Bag is another piece to add to your consideration set for your everyday carry.
Astorflex Bitflex Chelsea Boots — $195
We’re big fans of Astorflex here on the blog for the way the brand makes its stylish boots sustainably and with some serious style top of mind. The Astorflex Bitflex Chelsea Boots, exclusive to Huckberry, carry on that lineage handsomely (and they’re newly restocked!).
This right here is a no-brainer for me — Topo Designs, makers of excellent technical gear infused with quite a bit of style, have teamed up with my all-time favorite band, my heroes … yes, The National. The resulting Classic Duffel is travel-ready, which is fitting considering I’ve traveled a fair amount on my own to see them. In short, I’m on board with this handsome bag, from the Cordura fabric exterior to the embroidered NTL logo. Fun fact: The color of the bag also plays off the blue color found on the band’s 2017 classic “Sleep Well Beast” … just perfection.
Only $45 for a box of craft beer essentials? All available with ease through Bespoke Post? How cool is that? Whether you’re a craft beer novice or a longtime fan, the Bespoke Post Cheers Box is enough to get anyone fired up about the industry (and about whatever beer you have in your hand, of course).
Outerknown Octillo Shirt — $88
From the rich color to the easygoing styling potential, this Outerknown shirt is the kind you throw on underneath a shawl cardigan with faded jeans (or all on its own, sleeves rolled up), to head into the office on a casual day in late winter or early spring. The double-weave organic cotton is a winning fabric with a light weight, so you should also feel free to layer it over a classic henley.
Centric Instruments Lightwell Field Watch — $260
The perfect everyday watch (shown here in a different colorway than previously featured on the site) can be very tricky to find — you might say the search is *ahem* time-consuming. Centric Instruments takes care of all of that for you, thanks to this rugged field watch with a solar-powered movement capable of holding reserves up to six months. Bingo.
You might know Orvis for its field-ready gear made for outdoorsmen, but the brand is more than that. The Tech Chambray Work Shirt features quick-dry fabric and the styling potential of a tough chambray work shirt, all wrapped into one. From the triple-needle stitching to two front-button pockets, I’ve found this shirt to be versatile and durable (especially for my recent trip to Dublin).
Coalatree Trailhead Pants — $90
Right off the bat, you can tell the Coalatree Trailhead Pants are a little different than the rest. From the drawstring ankles and waist to the tear-resistant nylon fabric, they could just be the perfect pants for winter travel — try them with a classic chambray shirt and rugged leather chukka boots.
Taylor Stitch The Jack Shirt in White Reverse Jacquard — $138
Take it from a big fan — the fit and styling potential of Taylor Stitch shirts is nearly perfect. I’d say that’s also the case when it comes to the Taylor Stitch Jack Shirt, shown here in a seriously cool White Reverse Jacquard fabric. Wear it with slim tan chinos & stylish leather dress shoes.
Topo Designs Field Pants — $89
We’re back with more gear from Topo Designs — the durable, rugged Field Pants can take the place of jeans on a Casual Friday (maybe with the Taylor Stitch Jack Shirt) just as readily as they can put in serious work out in, well, the field. 100 percent organic midweight twill cotton provides longevity and easy wearability, while front patch pockets give you space for your everyday carry essentials.
Klitmøller Johan Sweater — $187
Speaking of gear that you can wear with the Field Pants from Topo Designs, well … add this rugged winter sweater from Klitmøller to your list. It’s the perfect pairing with, say, the Astorflex Bitflex Chelsea Boots and a hot cup of coffee.
Allegiance Flag Supply Colorado State Flag — $150
Now, do I have any deep ties to the state of Colorado, or have I ever lived there? Nope. Does this Allegiance Flag Supply flag look pretty cool, nonetheless? Yessir. Go for it to upgrade your living space in style.
OK, which of the above was your favorite today? We covered a lot of ground (in my humble opinion), but I have to say … the rugged versatility of the Astorflex Bitflex Chelsea Boots (again, some of the best men’s boots out there) makes it hard to pass ’em up. As always, let me know your thoughts on Twitter — thanks for reading!
