The Friday Read: The Best Weekend Getaway Bag, A Mott and Bow Discount & A New Timex Watch

Herschel Supply Co. Novel Duffle

Get ready to get away by packing up this durable and dependable weekender bag from Herschel Supply Co.

To say that it’s been a wild start to the new year would probably be an understatement, right? No doubt, no doubt. And yet, the beat goes on here at The Style Guide, from telling you how to dress for winter to outfitting you in the best men’s style essentials from Everlane. Of course, there’s been a lot going on in the wider world, and that’s got me thinking of an upstate getaway later this winter (and I’ll also be heading to Florida next month!). That being said, I know the best weekend getaway bag for both myself and for any trips you might be planning. I’m talking, of course, about the stylish weekender bag seen at the top of the page, the Herschel Supply Co. Novel Duffle. A recent introduction to the Herschel Supply lineup of the best everyday carry essentials, it’s a winning bag on multiple fronts, from the waterproof zipper construction to the cool-as-can-be striped fabric liner.

It’s simply one of the best weekender bags for men, and it’s available at a standout price, too (try $90 at Herschel). Plus, you can pick from a whopping 29 color combinations when it comes to the Herschel Supply Novel Duffle. That’s about as great as it gets, folks. Until I can plan a getaway, however, I’ll be writing away here in Brooklyn at sites like Maxim and GearMoose, of course. And if you can’t get enough of the blog, you should do yourself a favor and subscribe to my newsletter, The Style Guide In BriefTwice a week, I talk menswear, music and craft beer or whiskey. It’s a heck of a lot of fun, and it’s a change of pace from your regular men’s style coverage here (IMHO!). Again, subscribe HERE and keep scrolling: The rest of today’s Friday Read awaits.

Mott and Bow men's denim

The Mercer Jeans are just one of the best pairs of men’s jeans you can find at Mott and Bow.

  • In an earlier Friday Read this month, I talked about how Mott and Bow was now making some of the best men’s chinos. And yet, the dedication to well-fitting, slim blue denim (like the Mott and Bow Mercer Jeans) is right there, too. So here’s the scoop: You can use the code beau10 to get 10 percent off your first order at Mott and Bow. It’ll come in mighty handy when you want to pick up some of the best men’s blue jeans, like the timeless pair seen above. And if you’ve been a frequent customer of the brand in the past, you’re in luck, because they haven’t yet taken their foot off the gas as far as quality menswear. Cheers to that, my friends.
Timex Marlin Automatic Watch

A classic and crisp leather dress watch to wear all winter long.

  • I mentioned that I’ve been mighty busy kicking off the year on the writing front, and that’s particularly true over at GearMoose, a site for which I’ve now been writing five years (five!) as of this month! With that being said, it’s still a serious thrill to cover some of the coolest men’s gear out there, like the remarkable 2021 Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch Professional, as I did earlier this month. Talk about an investment-level watch, folks.

That’ll do it for today’s Friday Read, my friends. In the spirit of a much-needed getaway and the proper gear for the occasion, I’ll direct you one more time toward one of the best weekender bags for men, the Standard Issue Leather Duffel as crafted and sold by Huckberry. Check out that blog post, consider it carefully and make that duffel, or the Herschel Supply Novel Duffle, your next go-to weekender bag. Folks, thanks for reading — stay safe and stay strong!
