Highly stylish and yet made to go anywhere — pretty similar to the rest of my favorite summer gear.
From the stylish shorts on your legs (the ones above are from Finisterre) to the printed short-sleeve shirt you’re wearing to your next summer happy hour, we’re all about the finer things of the summer season in today’s new edition of The List. The best things in life, no matter the time of year, are made with care and attention to detail, and are often wearable in multiple situations and seasons. Such is the case with today’s picks (especially the *ahem* Taylor Stitch Moto Boots you’ll read about shortly). These are gear picks that celebrate adventure, durability & quality. Enjoy!
Finisterre Bamber Shorts — $78
A classic pair of outdoor shorts that perform just as nicely in town.
Everything you need to brew your own beer at home.
A classic, bright summer shirt for all your laidback pursuits.
Hawkins New York Linen Quilt — $395
Taylor Stitch Moto Boots in Espresso Grizzly — $348
Durability and style are the name of the game with these Taylor Stitch boots.
Jack Henry Face Toner — $24
A light, refreshing way to nourish your skin.
It’s the seemingly little things that make a grooming upgrade that much more possible — take the alcohol-free Jack Henry Face Toner. Made to refresh and cleanse your face, this is the perfect alternative to a heavy lotion on hot summer days.
Unbelievably comfortable and finely crafted moccasins to wear all summer.
Is $300 quite the hefty price tag? It sure is. But the Yuketen Canoe Moc
just so happens to be the best pair of summer slip-ons
out there, made with all the quality and craftsmanship you expect. Wear them with slim light wash denim and a slub polo for a casual weekend.
Wrangler Titanium Field Watch — $69
A highly dependable, affordable wristwatch.
For just a touch under $70, you’re getting a ridiculously dependable and durable field watch from a brand that makes some of the toughest jeans in the business — it’s a perfectly rugged complement to brown leather boots and a light wash denim shirt this summer.
Relwen Linen Trap Blazer — $328
The lightweight blazer that’s really two jackets in one.
Tread by Everlane Trainers — $98
The only pair of sustainably made sneakers you should be wearing this summer.
Get the sustainable sneakers of the future now from Everlane, and be prepared to be shocked at how comfortable they are (Extremely!) and how eco-conscious they are (94.2 percent-free of virgin plastic). Assuredly, your new favorite summer sneakers.
Relwen Lightweight Flex Chinos — $198
These are an excellent pair of durable, lightweight chinos to wear all summer.
Saturdays NYC Graphic Tee — $48
The unique and bold tee to wear to your next summer BBQ.
If you’re in the market for a stylish graphic tee
that won’t break the bank, perhaps one from a lauded brand like Saturdays NYC, then this is the best T-shirt to buy for summer
. Wear it under a light wash denim jacket with tan chinos for go-anywhere weekend style.
DemerBox Bluetooth Boombox — $349
This is the toughest boombox on the market, hands down.
We’ve talked in the past about this indestructible Bluetooth boombox
, but it so holds that you’re going to want to bring it on all your camping trips and beach expeditions, so it’s worth remembering this one.
These swim shorts are tailored, stylish and ready for the beach.
For a mere $50, you’re getting a pair of the best men’s swim trunks
, and they’re as tailored as the shorts you’ll be wearing when you’re not in the water. Come to think of it, the Suit Swim Shorts
could do the job of both, if need be.
How many essential summer gear picks do you see on the above list? Any new favorites? To me, it’s tough to pass up the Suit Swim Shorts for just $50 — although, the Yuketen Canoe Moc just so happens to be both premium AND easily wearable in a number of situations. Decisions, decisions. Once you’ve taken care of your own shopping, feel free to get in touch with me via The Style Guide Facebook page to chat all things menswear. Thanks for reading!
