Does it seem right to be on the verge of another fall weekend? Where has the time gone?? The season is flying by, and I hope you’re well and properly geared up with the right fall style essentials — kind of like the excellent, perfectly rugged and highly versatile Relwen Sweater Trap Blazer as shown above. It’s the perfect jacket for fall travel and to wear to the office … or evening drinks … or brunch … all at once. It’s the kind of rugged fall jacket I look forward to wearing on Brooklyn weekends like this one, in fact. Speaking of Brooklyn weekends, to me, it doesn’t get much better than crisp fall weather, delicious craft beer, and high-energy indie rock music. All of those things are helpfully coming together in one place during the beer and music-themed OctFest, hosted by Pitchfork and one of my favorite craft beer outlets, October! It’s packed with powerful headliners, including Parquet Courts, and I’m also excited to taste out delicious craft beer in the process (and in the meantime, I’ll be enjoying some beer in my humble abode from the Trail Keg Half-Gallon Growler, too). You can also be sure I’ll be wearing some of my favorite fall gear — on that front, you can follow along with all of the fun via my Instagram to see how I’m taking on the weekend. For now, today’s Friday Read is below — cheers!
- Let’s get things started off right for the weekend — and given that it’s October, you need a new favorite henley in your rotation. The good news? I covered the best men’s henleys over at The Manual, with appearances from Taylor Stitch & Flint and Tinder, to boot. Layer accordingly.
- We talked above about essential fall layers — and on that note, I wrote all about one of the best jackets for fall over at GearMoose. The jacket in question? The Flint and Tinder Quilted Waxed Field Jacket, as sold by our pals at Huckberry. There’s nothing better to wear with slim indigo denim and rugged leather boots, this is true.
- As crucial as it is to outfit yourself with the best new fall gear, there’s something to be said for stocking your fridge with some of the best beer for fall — truly. While I’ve long been a fan of craft beer in and around Brooklyn, I surely wouldn’t mind trying the new Budweiser x Jim Beam Reserve Black Lager, and to that end, I covered it for GearMoose. Bottoms up!
Last but not least, I’ll leave you with one more recommended piece of men’s style reading for the weekend. Specifically, I’ve done my best to round up all of my favorite gear for fall, from shirt jackets to watches to new leather boots — follow along with that list, and you’ll be all set for the season. Alright, now let’s get ready for the weekend. Cheers!
