We’re on the edge of another winter weekend — I hope you powered through your week with speed & style in mind! And I hope you’ve got your eye on that remarkable Buck Mason denim shirt shown above — it could be the perfect winter layer when paired with, say, your favorite henley, and it’s the right way to gear up for whatever’s on your plate this weekend. Notably, winter style essentials should be top of mind, and that’s what we’re going to dive into here for another edition of The Friday Read. Whether it’s a modern flannel shirt or the perfect way to wear your leather bomber jacket, I guarantee you we’ve got something for you — plus, a healthy dose of the best menswear news at the same time. So again, what’s on your plate this weekend? For me, I’ll be working away on the blog (be sure to follow The Style Guide on Facebook!), as well as heading to a double birthday party of sorts being thrown by my cousin — craft beer and BBQ are on the menu, make no mistake! I’ll also be enjoying some coffee at Brooklyn’s own Sweetwater Coffee and Tea,and likely swinging by one of my favorite menswear and home goods shops, the always-excellent Modern Anthology. Of course, given that it’s a long holiday weekend, I’ll be out and about in Prospect Park a fair amount, too — in short, I can’t ask for much more from a few days in Brooklyn than that. To follow along with what I’m wearing (and imbibing, and listening to), head to my Instagram. Oh, and before I forget — make sure you’re layering up with that Buck Mason denim shirt shown above. For now, enjoy the start of your weekend!
- OK, let’s kick things off with a bang. Now, we’re a few weeks into the new year, but that doesn’t mean you should stop shopping for the best men’s style essentials — and with that in mind, I put my mind to the task at hand and covered the best new menswear for 2020 over at The Manual. A spoiler: The post features appearances from my pals at Mott and Bow, plus Buck Mason and Taylor Stitch. OK, happy reading!
- Speaking of kicking things off with a bang, head over to Faherty Brand to shop the Faherty Brand Surplus Sale, featuring discounts up to 70 percent off — that includes knitwear starting at $29, outerwear starting at $99, and free shipping on orders over $95. A terrific deal on your new favorite menswear, to say the least.
- Of course, the headline at the top of the page mentions that we’re going to tell you about the best leather messenger bag — and well, that bag in particular just so happens to be the Bexar Goods Porter Satchel, as covered by yours truly at GearMoose. It’s potentially the perfect way to haul your everyday carry essentials, no doubt about it.
- We also mentioned we’d be getting to a new hooded sweatshirt for winter — and again, I’ll point you back toward GearMoose for the full scoop on the Proof Meridian Hoodie, quite possibly the best hooded sweatshirt for a winter adventure (or heck, a day of lounging on your couch).
OK, that’s going to wrap up today’s Friday Read. Did you find what you were looking for? If not, take a look at my latest roundup of the best new men’s gear — we’re covering everything from rugged flannel shirts to the best new winter boots, so I think you’ll more than be able to gear up in style this season. OK, that’s really it for now — enjoy your weekend!
