Folks, cheers to the weekend and cheers to your new favorite denim jacket, as worn by Todd Snyder himself up above. It’s a restock of the collaboration denim jacket from Todd Snyder and Legent Bourbon, the ideal layer to wear for spring and summer days aplenty (and an ideal gift for Father’s Day). That’s not all we’ve got on the docket today, though (you knew that, right?). The newest edition of the Friday Read, as you might expect, is jam-packed with plenty of the best men’s style news and gear for your weekend.
Of course, last week, we talked about an heirloom leather bag to buy right now for summer travel, but let’s think of the Todd Snyder x Legent Bourbon Selvege Denim Jacket as, quite possibly, the perfect jacket for summer travel — anywhere and everywhere. So, that’s one menswear essential with which to step into the weekend. And hey, if you so please, you can read about Legent Bourbon here on the blog, and of course, you can shop Legent Bourbon for your weekend right here.
In addition to adding the Todd Snyder x Legent Bourbon Selvege Denim Jacket to my summer wish list, I’ve got plenty more on tap this weekend now that I’m back in Brooklyn, including plans to visit the excellent Threes Brewing (per tradition!). I’ll also be working on my music and menswear newsletter, The Style Guide In Brief, which you should certainly keep an eye out for tomorrow morning (Tuesday’s post was on the latest from Lord Huron!). What’s on your own weekend to-do list? Let me know in the comments below, and keep scrolling to find out more style wish list must-haves and choice reading picks.
- Let’s play ball — or at least, let’s get you outfitted with a new favorite pair of leather boots. Two heritage brands with plenty of American spirit — that’d be Wolverine and famed sporting goods brand Rawlings — have teamed up on the new Wolverine x Rawlings 1000 Mile Boots, made using Horween leather that you’d find in baseball gloves on Major League ballfields. These boots celebrate America’s pastime in style, and for the occasion, I wrote all about them at Maxim.com. Here’s to a stylish summer, indeed!
- Here’s a fun way to start the weekend if you, like me, love cold beer and summer travel in the sun. Keystone Light, purveyors of the perfect beer to take out on the lake or to the beach, by the six-pack or the case, is offering five $10,000 vacations this year (in the form of cold, hard cash). How to enter? Purchase a 12-pack or larger of Keystone Light and then upload your receipt at KeystoneLightSummer.com, or else scan the QR code on Keystone Light signage at your local store. Easy as that, really. If you’re over 21, you can enter until July 10th. Cheers, folks!
- Speaking of cold summer beer for hot summer days, how about the perfect shirt to wear for your summer vacation? Tropical Bros. and High Noon have teamed up on a fun new Hawaiian shirt, celebrating the ideal pairing of hard seltzer and hours in the sun, on the water with great friends. It helps that this shirt wears well with swim trunks or with your favorite chino shorts, and the super-stretch Hawaiian fabric is also supremely comfortable. That’s a major win for me.
That’s going to wrap up my quick-hit picks for the impending start of summer, from a fun new beer giveaway to the perfect summer shirt… and oh yeah, some rugged leather boots that also celebrate America’s pastime (seriously, I’m a huge fan of the look and styling potential of the Wolverine x Rawlings 1000 Mile Boots. That just about covers all the right bases, although I’m going to leave you with one last recommendation. And that recommendation? It’s all about the best new shorts to buy right now from Huckberry, as covered last week on the blog. Happy shopping and enjoy the weekend, folks!
