My friends, thanks for joining us for another Friday Read. I’m going to kick things off today with something I think will prove highly useful during these screen-heavy times. My friends at GlassesUSA.com have just launched BLUEASE, a line of blue light-blocking eyeglasses that blend plenty of style and functionality. On that note, it’s never been easier to get a pair of stylish glasses with this technology built right in — you can get 10 percent off BLUEASE frames with the code BLUEASE10, or you can take advantage of the site’s Buy One, Get One offer, including BLUEASE glasses, with the code BOGOFREE. But why do you need blue light glasses? These glasses reduce eye strain, cut back on headaches & improve your sleep and productivity. Those are all things we could use these days, right? Right. So, that’s where we’re starting Friday. By the way, my personal favorite from the BLUEASE line? The Gosling Eyeglasses as shown below — aptly named!
In my neck of the woods I’m staying plenty busy in Brooklyn now that I’ve made the jump into menswear projects and writing full-time — I’ve recently penned some pieces for Maxim.com, about which I’m VERY, very excited! Heck, I was able to feature one of my favorite brands, the esteemed style purveyors at Buck Mason, in my first piece. It doesn’t get any better than that. There’s also more in the works here at the blog. In the coming weeks, I’ll be launching The Shop by The Style Guide, a curated page of easy-to-shop men’s style essentials you’re going to get a kick out of.
Besides shopping for some men’s style essentials, what else is on your weekend agenda as we close out July?
It’s tough to believe we’re cruising through what’s turned out to be a very different summer, but I’m planning on doing the best I can to support the businesses I love right now. That means a customary stop by Brooklyn’s Wild East Brewing later today, in fact. In the meantime, you can — and should! — look for my next newsletter dispatch tomorrow via The Style Guide In Brief, plus our customary Saturday Style Pick of the Week. I’m excited for everyone to check ’em out! Thanks, as always, for reading and for your support. Onward with the Friday Read, ehh?
- Let’s kick off your weekend in style. Now through Monday, you should head to Nisolo — rugged and refined footwear out of Nashville — to get 25 percent off sitewide on orders of $160 or more with code TOGETHER. It’s part of this sustainable footwear brand‘s partnership with Mission Brand Alliance, a collective of 17 ethical brands focused on a sustainable future. Plus, Nisolo also happens to make some of the best men’s shoes, period. This won’t be the last time you see them here.
- Elsewhere on the sale front, you can use the code SUMMER50 to get $50 off orders of $200 or more at Faherty Brand, now through July 31st (just apply the code at checkout).That includes picks like a personal favorite, the Faherty All Day Shorts, and more.
- We’re going to keep talking footwear for a minute. I wouldn’t exactly consider myself a sneakerhead (I moreso love classic canvas sneakers, for instance), but I do know an attention-grabbing pair of sneakers when I see ’em. That’s what caught my eye about the Nike ACG Air Zoom AO, a functional and striking pair of men’s sneakers that I covered for GearMoose.
- We’ll leave you with one last handy, helpful guide. For casual style at home this summer, it’s hard to go wrong with one of the best men’s polos — especially a performance merino polo from Western Rise. In that spirit, here’s my #OOTD on how to wear a polo for summer, featuring stylish leather loafers from Todd Snyder and Buck Mason canvas trousers. Happy shopping, folks.
My friends, we’ve once again reached the end of my weekly men’s style roundup. Before you go, let me give you one last item to ponder heading into the weekend. I’m a huge proponent of finding the best sneakers for men, the kind that work with your lifestyle, and then wearing them as much as possible. I’ve found perhaps no better classic pair of sneakers than the timeless Converse Chuck Taylor 70 Sneakers as sold by Need Supply. Need Supply Co. is, sadly, phasing out its operations, so if you want to get a great deal on sneakers like these, I’d suggest you check ’em out — and read this post ASAP. OK, that’s all for now. Have a great weekend, and thanks again for reading!
