My friends, can you see clearly heading into the weekend? Get it? Well, your eyewear and sunglasses rotation is about to get a heck of a lot more stylish heading into Saturday and beyond, thanks to the exclusive launch of the Champion x GlassesUSA.com Collection last week. That’s right — the lauded athletic brand is teaming up with one of the best eyeglass retailers out there. You might remember GlassesUSA.com from another edition of the Friday Read covering the best blue light glasses, and this new launch is a welcome addition to the brand’s rotation of the best men’s eyeglasses out there. Consider shopping Champion x GlassesUSA to keep your eyes in fine form heading into fall, folks. So, we’ve got that out there — what else is on the rest of your fall weekend to-do list?
I’ll certainly do my best to keep you entertained and well-stocked in matters of style in today’s Friday Read, so stay tuned for more below. Perhaps you’re also of the mind to subscribe to my newsletter, The Style Guide In Brief? Every Tuesday and Saturday, I send out a dispatch via Substack covering the best seasonal gear, the best craft beer and whiskey or coffee and indie rock to soundtrack your reading and shopping. Fun, right? I certainly think so, and I’d be honored if you subscribed. In the meantime, you can check out my bylines at GearMoose.com and Maxim.com, naturally. As for me, well, I’ll be checking out favorite spots like Threes Brewing in Brooklyn this weekend for safe and distanced to-go beers, and if you’ll be doing something similar, consider this a virtual toast to fall.
- Alright, so, you’ve seen this stylish Everlane cardigan if you read my regular roundup of the season’s best menswear — that’d be known as The List, folks. But I’m sharing it here again because this Everlane Felted Merino Cardigan could be the perfect sweater to wear, well, anywhere. Consider it the perfect travel sweater, throw it on to spruce up your favorite T-shirt for that Zoom call, and just snap it up ASAP either way, because it’s one of the best men’s sweaters of the moment.
- Let’s talk about another crucial fall layer, the durable jacket you’ll find yourself needing more and more these days. That’s why I wrote about the Barbour International x Saturdays NYC Winter Wax Jacket for GearMoose, a critical layer and a tough fall jacket that combines old-school heritage with a modern fit and feel. How about that, ehh?
- How about some more fall #menswear for the taking, ehh? The good folks at PAIGE (as you know if you shopped the PAIGE Semi-Annual Sale) make some of the best jeans for men, yet they also do a standout job at crafting other men’s style essentials, like the PAIGE Cooper Shirt. It’s one of the best casual shirts for a fall weekend, in my opinion. Who else is with me?
- As I mentioned above, ’tis the right season to enjoy one of the best beers for fall, is it not? In the spirit of amplifying your weekend sipping, I wrote about Otherside Brewing’s Tycoon 2020 release for GearMoose — now, that’s a New Zealand beer, wild enough, so I thought I’d recommend another one closer to home: The Karbach Brewing Karbachtoberfest, one of the best seasonal beers around. You can even get it delivered via Drizly, which is pretty great … if you ask me.
Now, before we go our separate ways (at least until tomorrow’s Style Pick of the Week!), let me leave you with one last essential fall buy: The FRYE Tyler Boots, as covered here on the blog, are easily some of the best men’s boots for fall, what with their rugged good looks and durability, plus plenty of seasonal style potential. Check out my post, then be sure to outfit yourself accordingly with a pair of the best fall boots, my friends. OK, that’s all I’ve got today. Stay safe out there this weekend, my friends. Cheers!
