Folks, it’s time that we step right into another Friday Read, is it not? It’s another cold winter weekend across much of the country (I happen to be on a Florida getaway at the moment, sorry!), but I’m still plotting out my winter wardrobe when I return to the Big Apple. I don’t know about you, but for me, that’s got to mean some of the best men’s boots from a luxurious-yet-accessible brand like Beckett Simonon. And it just so happens that the incredible Beckett Simonon Gallagher Boots are made from water-repellent suede, a nice way to step out in winter rain or even light snow while still keeping a bit of refined style on lock. Heck, these are even boots you can wear with jeans and your favorite field jacket, if you really want to keep it rugged & casual-yet-cool. Go with Beckett Simonon boots, and they won’t let you down. That’s the best way I can recommend you kick off Friday, but a few choice reads and shopping picks below ought to help, ehh?
As for me, I’ll be enjoying another Florida weekend in the sun (this you know, if you follow me on Instagram), filled with some relaxing pool and beach hangs, plus local craft beer from Point Ybel Brewing — my favorite brewery in town — and some choice reads. I’m working my way through “Greenlights” by Matthew McConaughey, as it were, and I can’t recommend it enough. Entertaining and enlightening the whole way through so far. But back to the rest of today’s Friday Read below — check out the coolest new watch on the market, read about the best loungewear and roll into the weekend with ease.
- Speaking of the best new watch for men, well, here it is. Want to really upgrade your watch game in a way that’s functional yet stylish, and with utterly classic roots? Then the revamped Bulova Devil Diver (featuring a water resistance up to 666 feet) is for you. Good news is, I covered it for Maxim — see for yourself here. Yes indeed, call it one of the best men’s watches of the moment or call it just a darn fine retro throwback, but get it on your wrist either way.
- In the spirit of the best men’s style essentials for winter, from watches to boots, here’s another shopping pick for you. Head over to Mack Weldon to step up your sweatshirt rotation in a big way with the Tech Cashmere Crewneck Sweater. It’s ridiculously soft, well-fitting and easy to throw on atop a T-shirt on the weekend (preferably with Mack Weldon joggers) or over an Oxford shirt for a Zoom call during the week. Of course, you can also get free U.S. shipping at Mack Weldon right now, too.
- Hey now, here’s a fun one for anyone who’s in search of one of the best casual winter jackets. I covered a rugged fleece trucker jacket from Everlane here on the blog, the kind you can easily wear atop your favorite thermal henley for maximum warmth. And naturally, the Tech Cashmere Crewneck Sweater from Mack Weldon also works for layering purposes.
- Let’s keep things rolling with one last recommended shopping pick, this time from New York City’s own Alex Mill. The up-and-coming brand is making perfectly casual men’s style staples, including this stylish winter blazer that’s incredibly easy to throw on over a T-shirt for your next Zoom meeting or happy hour. When things do start to turn around, you can wear the Alex Mill Double Face Knit Blazer atop a crisp white Oxford shirt at the office. How’s that for a winter shopping pick, ehh?
So to refresh before we let you roll into the weekend, we covered everything from a stylish winter blazer to the best sweater to wear at home, as far as shopping picks are concerned. We also dove into the best new watch for men, and you should assuredly head to Maxim to read my take on it. Lastly, do yourself a favor and check out a rugged fleece trucker jacket for expert casual winter style. As always, you can swing back through the blog tomorrow for our Style Pick of the Week. Make it a great weekend, folks!
