Today’s edition of The List is going to get right to the point — nothing but the classics, the greatest hits, the best takes on the best new menswear to be found on the Internet (OK, that’s a stretch … but still). Early March is an interesting time, especially in Brooklyn — any day could bring everything from rain to warm breezes to (gulp) snow … so you’ll find one of the best crewneck sweatshirts in the mix as seen above, along with plenty of your new favorite menswear picks (again, all classics). OK, let’s go to work.
Flint and Tinder 10-Year French Terry Crewneck — $88
When the folks at Huckberry and Flint and Tinder put their minds to releasing one of the best men’s crewneck sweatshirts, you can be sure they’re going to, well, succeed. The 10-Year French Terry Crewneck will last at least that long, so be prepared to get plenty of wear out of it.
HELM Boots Railroad Boots — $395
OK, so you know what goes exceptionally well with one of the best men’s crewneck sweatshirts? A great pair of rugged leather boots, particularly from HELM Boots. These are built for early spring and beyond, and there’s no doubt that the HELM Boots Railroad Boots will only get better with age. Better still? If you’ve never bought from the brand, you can get $50 off your first purchase with HELM Boots, plus free shipping, right now.
Faherty Brand Movement Shirt — $148
Every guy needs a versatile everyday shirt — the kind you can wear with, say, a stylish crewneck and leather boots as well as with a slim spring blazer and chinos (more on your blazer in a second). The Faherty Brand Movement Shirt is, in that regard, the perfect everyday shirt.
Vetra Broken Twill Blazer — $135.98
In the way of men’s style essentials, it’s tough to top a lightweight blazer for spring. Apt for wearing with your favorite Oxford shirt or else layered up with a classic crewneck sweatshirt for casual style, the Vetra Broken Twill Blazer just gets the job done.
Mott and Bow Laight Slim Jeans — $118
As we move into spring, there’s one style of essential men’s jeans that begins to separate itself from the pack — a pair of stylish light wash jeans, especially a well-made and reasonably priced pair from Mott and Bow.
Taylor Stitch Piston Jacket in Indigo Corduroy — $188
Can the team at Taylor Stitch ever stop churning out some of the best new menswear on the planet? Apparently not, because the Taylor Stitch Piston Jacket, featuring a classic bomber construction and rich indigo-dyed corduroy for spring layering … is simply one of the coolest men’s jackets your author has seen in some time.
Jack Mason Aviator Watch — $195
With a rather unique design — white dial, black leather strap, eye-catching orange dial markings — the Jack Mason Aviator Watch is just different enough. Consider adding this versatile, tough timepiece to your collection for a new season.
Western Rise X Cotton Everyday Tee — $48
Is it T-shirt weather yet? Maybe so — and that’s why you need one of the best men’s T-shirts, particularly this versatile piece from Western Rise. It’s made from cotton, polyester and spandex, making it perhaps the perfect T-shirt for travel (and of course, the everyday).
Hawthorne Face Lotion — Price Varies
The folks at Hawthorne — who I’ve previously covered at The Manual — continue to expand their line of men’s grooming essentials with a seriously effective moisturizer, made in part with shea butter. It’s some of the best moisturizer I’ve used in some time, so I’d say you should take the brand’s quiz to tailor your skincare routine expertly.
Billy Reid Louis Henley — $150
When you want premium menswear that’s rugged and classic at the same time, you want Billy Reid. Specifically, you want one of the best men’s henleys from the brand, the kind you can wear with nearly anything else on this list (stylish light wash jeans included).
LSTN Sound Marquee Wireless Speaker — $89
Let’s pivot to the best wireless speaker for your home, office, den or … next road trip. That’s the LSTN Sound Marquee Wireless Speaker, made with sleek design and stylish looks in mind. Available now from Bespoke Post for a downright steal.
