Alright, folks — we all know what day it is. That’s right … it’s Friday, and yes … it’s Valentine’s Day. What do you have planned? And more importantly, what are you wearing? Perhaps my guide to what to wear on an evening date can be of service? Maybe you don’t quite have a lot planned at all, but that’s no reason to get down — treat yourself to your favorite craft beer, or perhaps a live show (as I plan on doing!), or a delicious burger or maybe, just maybe … treat yourself to a piece from the spectacular Taylor Stitch Vintage Collection as shown at the top of the page? A complementary offering to the excellent Taylor Stitch Restitch Collection (which repurposes old Taylor Stitch gear), pieces like the Taylor Stitch Vintage Moto Jacket are seriously rare, highly coveted and very tough to find (unless you act now, that is). And although it’s pricey and limited in sizing, there’s no question that you’ll be very, very happy this Valentine’s Day if you snap up the Taylor Stitch Vintage Moto Jacket — or a similar piece from the collection.
I’ll be doing some online shopping myself, and I’m looking forward to a relaxing winter weekend in Brooklyn, powered as always by my favorite vinyl (this weekend’s selection is “Trouble Will Find Me” by The National), delicious coffee … and yes, craft beer. It’s a nice change of pace from the hustle and bustle of this week, as New York Fashion Week continued to roll along — I was fortunate enough to check out a sustainable fashion event at NYC’s Ace Hotel featuring Dickies this past weekend, and it’s always a treat to see brands that are doing things the right way (kind of like Taylor Stitch with its repurposed Taylor Stitch Vintage Collection!). With that being said, it’s time to start the weekend right — here’s to Friday, and the Friday Read. Cheers!
- If you’re on the hunt for a great craft beer to enjoy this fine winter weekend, you could do worse than the rich, roasty Rogue Brewing Rolling Thunder 2020 Imperial Stout, which packs a whopping punch of flavor and quality. Click through to read more via my latest for GearMoose.
- I mentioned above that we’d get into the best men’s boots for winter — and if this recent See Now, Buy Now entry (from this very site!) is any indication, then the Red Wing Heritage Wacouta Boots (available at Huckberry) are the rugged, dependable pair of leather boots you need right now.
- We talked earlier about the excellent Taylor Stitch Vintage Collection, but there’s an item you can snag right now that’s tough, durable and arguably one of the best men’s jackets. That’d be the terrific Taylor Stitch Welterweight Winslow Jacket, as covered by yours truly at GearMoose.
If you read the blog on the regular (as you should!), then it should come as no surprise where I’m going to direct you next: Towards my latest roundup of the best men’s gear! That’s courtesy of the ongoing series The List, which calls out seasonal style essentials aplenty. Heading into the weekend, I’m certain you’re bound to find at least one of your new favorite style picks. Right? Right. If you want to connect further on all things #menswear, head to my Twitter. OK, that’s it — that’s all I’ve got! Have a good one, folks.
