Let’s step right on into the weekend with some of the most sustainable sneakers on the market, shall we? The pair you see above are perfectly ready for one of the last true weekends of summer: We’re talking, of course, about the GREATS Royale Eco Canvas, a recent addition to the Brooklyn-based sneaker brand‘s line of classic, subtly minimal sneakers for guys. I’ve been a big fan of GREATS for years, and to power your weekend, I’d surely recommend you snap up some of, well, the best sneakers for men (and they also make women’s sneakers, naturally). Recycled cotton canvas uppers and a custom lining highlighting the brand’s commitment to sustainability set these stylish sneakers apart, too. Seriously, how about that to start your weekend?
My own weekend is off to a pretty swimming start, if I do say so myself — literally, in fact. Since early last week, I’ve been with my parents and sister in quiet, laidback Fort Myers, Florida. Quiet and laidback given the ongoing pandemic, and also quiet and laidback given the remote beaches we’ve been able to safely visit. We’ve also managed to pick up to-go craft beer from Point Ybel Brewing, a personal favorite of any trip. All along the way, I’ve managed to get some quality time with family while working on the blog (there’s a new Style Pick of the Week coming up tomorrow!), plus my ongoing writing work at Maxim.com and GearMoose.
To start your weekend right, I’ve assembled the below men’s style deals and picks. What’s more, I know exactly how to soundtrack your weekend — the just-released, propulsive, emotional, joyous “Imploding The Mirage” by Las Vegas rock legends The Killers. How’s that for a weekend kick-off, ehh?? I’ll have it on rotation for days to come. Back to a bit of menswear, though — check it all out below.
- For these casual days at home and beyond, I’m going to point you toward a brand I’ve long admired: San Francisco-based Everlane, a subject on the blog here dating back to 2015. Here in the present, they’ve just launched the excellent-looking, affordably priced Everlane French Terry Sweatpants, part of the made-to-be-mixed-and-matched Everlane Uniform Collection. Think daily style staples that look great and are made with radical transparency in mind. The best men’s sweatpants to wear at home? You decide.
- Let’s talk men’s grooming for a second, shall we? The end of summer heading into fall means you need the best men’s grooming essentials at the ready to keep your face in shape for a new season, and Jack Black (celebrating its 20th anniversary this year), is here to help. What does that mean for you? It means that you can shop the Jack Black 20th Anniversary Collection, and it means you can get 20 percent off men’s grooming picks from the anniversary collection with the code BIG when you buy all four selections. That includes a hair and body cleansing wash, a conditioning shave gel and a moisturizing body lotion. The best grooming picks for your hard-earned cash? Certainly.
- Today’s Friday Read is jam-packed with what you might call “the good stuff.” In this case, that means I’m highlighting one of the best sales for men right now, a great place to spend your cash — the American Trench Summer Sale. Of course, American Trench is another longtime favorite of the blog, partnering with American-made brands and factories to make a slew of men’s style must-haves, from the best men’s socks to the best men’s rain jacket. The ongoing sale features everything from the coolest men’s sunglasses (American-made) to, naturally, stylish athletic socks that you can actually wear any time you please.
- Let’s close things out by heading over to GearMoose. For the end of summer and on into fall (especially if you live in a temperate climate), pick up the Rhodes Footwear Miles Slip-On, the latest new arrival from Rhodes Footwear over at Huckberry. In the spirit of summer style, I covered the launch for GearMoose. Enjoy, my friends!
OK, so we’re almost wrapped up here today. But again, before I let you loose on the weekend, I’ve got one last suggested bit of shopping and reading. If it’s a rugged base layer or a stylish T-shirt to wear all on its own that you seek, you’re going to want to check out my post on the best pocket T-shirt for men (from NYC’s Freemans Sporting Club, of course). Enjoy, gear up, get out there — and make sure you subscribe to my newsletter, The Style Guide In Brief (a new edition drops tomorrow!). Alright, it’s time for me to get some more coffee. Cheers to the weekend!
