Folks, you know what time it is. It’s time to step into the weekend with today’s action-packed Friday Read, which covers new spring beer, new spring gear from the likes of Mack Weldon, some new SeaVees sneakers and of course, a new spring watch. The watch in question is above is one I can’t recommend highly enough. It’s coming at you courtesy of Spinnaker Watches, and I’ve had the chance to test out the brand in recent weeks. In fact, I covered one of the coolest new watches from Spinnaker just last week on the blog. There’s no doubt in my mind that the Spinnaker Croft Automatic Watch is every bit as functional, durable and stylish as you need this season. And hey, the stainless steel case, contrasting bezel and black leather strap give this rugged men’s watch plenty of versatility, too. Consider it a proper way to start your weekend — and know that there’s more where that came from.
We’ve got plenty of other ground to cover today, as you’ll find out in just a minute. As for me, I’ve been plenty busy with other freelance pursuits, including my next music-and-menswear newsletter entry. It’ll hit your inbox tomorrow at The Style Guide In Brief, and you’re also getting a Tuesday newsletter dispatch as well. It’s fun, it’s informational, it’s a great way to start your weekend (as biased as I might be, though).
If that sounds ideal to you, well, I assure you that it is. Elsewhere, I’m once again back in Florida to spend some quality time with my dogs as my parents head out on a quick trip. From time spent in the sun to time spent with Point Ybel Brewing Company beer, it doesn’t get much better. I hope your weekend is just as relaxing and enjoyable. Cheers and thanks for reading!
- Now, how’s this for another spring shopping pick? The arrival of warm weather doesn’t mean you should revert to old-school, threadbare T-shirts. In fact, that’s why I’m recommending you get one of the best polos for spring and summer from… well, who else but Mack Weldon?? The brand’s Ace Hooded Sweatshirt has you covered for casual days at home, and the Mack Weldon Vesper Polo is as great a way as any to add a bit of polish to all those more dressed-up meetings (or rather, Zoom calls). Go for it and let me know your take.
- What do you need to pair with your new spring polo from Mack Weldon? That’s easy: Some stylish new spring sneakers. If you ask me, I think it’s very tough to beat SeaVees sneakers, especially the sustainable and eco-conscious SeaVees Legend Sneaker Seachange. It’s the brand’s first-ever collection release with conservation group Seachange, so that’s quite the 2-for-1 deal. Get ’em right now at Huckberry.
- Now, I mentioned above that we’d be talking about the best beers for spring, and with that being said, well, here’s what I’ve got for you. Over at GearMoose, I covered my favorite beers for the season from a wide variety of famed and acclaimed breweries. That goes for Allagash Brewing in Maine, as well as Threes Brewing “down the street” here in Brooklyn (to mention but a couple). Crack open a cold one and enjoy yourself, folks.
- Let’s switch tracks for a second here. For Maxim.com, I’ve been quite busy these past few weeks covering all manner of new watches, but I had the chance to step outside of the watch world and cover the latest Laphroaig whisky launch, a 10-year whisky finished in Sherry Oak casks. I’ve also been sampling said whisky, and I can confirm it’s as great as it looks. Cheers and let’s raise a glass, shall we?
That’ll bring us to the end, believe it or not, of another Friday Read. As I said above, be sure to check out those new spring beers, that new Laphroaig Scotch and of course, my weekend newsletter. Naturally, I also have one more guide to share before we ride into the weekend. If you, like me, can’t seem to put away your new favorite pair of boots, this #OOTD will tell you all about how to make ’em work for you this season. Lace up those Huckberry boots and we’ll see you out there.
