Does the idea of wearing jeans in the summer sound unappealing? If I may, that could just be because you haven’t found some of the best jeans for men in the form of Mott and Bow men’s denim. To get even more specific, the lightweight and stretch-filled Mott and Bow Broome Jeans are the perfect pair of jeans to wear for summer, especially if you’re the type of person who simply can’t stop wearing denim (guilty as charged). You’ve very likely read all about Mott and Bow here on the blog through the years. The brand has been a longtime favorite, makers of everything from classic blue jeans to surprisingly stylish men’s chinos, and then some. The Mott and Bow Broome Denim, so named for Broome Street in a nod to the brand’s NYC roots, carry on the upstart denim brand’s focus on quality and accessibility, to say the very least. And again, if you’re the type of person who simply loves to wear denim on the daily, then you’re in luck.

Mott and Bow has, after all, been making some of the best men’s jeans for years now, and they’ve perfected the right blend of quality and value. That’s probably an understatement, but it does shine through indeed with the Mott and Bow Broome Jeans. It all starts with the fabric, a 12.8oz. stretch denim that gets a boost through 360-degree, four-way stretch technology. That sort of stretch is going to make these jeans buoyant, not heavy, and it’s going to allow you to get around on the go in style. For guys who love wearing jeans even through the hot summer months, every bit of comfort is essential. Of course, it also helps that Mott and Bow makes stylish men’s T-shirts in ultra-lightweight fabrics, because a T-shirt and jeans on a hot summer day is about as all-American as it gets.

Slim - Broome - Medium Blue

It also all comes down to the fit and feel of these jeans. The Mott and Bow Broome Jeans are available in three crisp and cool Mott and Bow fits, including Slim, Straight and Skinny. I prefer the Slim fit myself, but the great thing is, Mott and Bow offers free shipping and returns, as you very well know if you’ve shopped the brand in the past. Select the wash, fit and size, and then be prepared to be mighty pleased with the results. The Medium Wash finish is also ideal for summer, when light wash denim is naturally easier to wear and all the more stylish on hot summer days.


Naturally, that light wash also lends itself quite readily to plenty of easy and breezy summer style staples, be it a lightweight short-sleeve shirt or one of Mott and Bow’s men’s T-shirts. Either should prove soft, versatile and casual. The list goes on as you consider picking up a pair of the best men’s jeans, because you can also wear these with an unlined cotton blazer and a crisp Oxford shirt for business casual days at the office or even a night on the town, Old Fashioned in hand. The best men’s jeans for summer are yours for the taking, so don’t waste any more time shopping ’em.

Shop Men - Classic Men's Clothing | Taylor Stitch…

Folks, I’m going to urge you to act quickly right off the bat.

That’s right: 30 percent off sitewide at Taylor Stitch, no code needed . It might seem too good to be true, but I’m here to tell you that it’s certainly not. In fact, I’m going to take this opportunity to do things just a bit differently in our Sunday Sale series by keeping it short and sweet. It’s not every day that a brand like this one has a sale. So, what are you waiting for? Go shop that sale, folks.

After all, there’s plenty of the best menswear to buy on sale at Taylor Stitch. Again, this sale goes through July 4th (patriotic!), so do yourself a favor and get on it.

Style Pick of the Week: Mack Weldon Radius Shorts

Radius Active Shorts - Men's Stretch Shorts | Mack Weldon

If you’re in the business of building your wardrobe from head-to-toe with your favorite brands, then Mack Weldon is certainly a brand to know. If you read the blog, perhaps you know all about how they make some of the best T-shirts for men, plus the best casual hoodie. What if I told you it gets even better beyond that, though? I’m talking, naturally, about the Mack Weldon Radius Shorts, a new launch from the brand here just in time for summer — and surely, destined to become your new favorite shorts. They check plenty of the right boxes, as I like to say, as far as the best shorts for men are concerned, and again, if you know Mack Weldon, you know that’s not hyperbole. Mack Weldon menswear is as functional as it is fashionable. And in the case of the Mack Weldon Radius Shorts, the brand carries on that lineage quite nicely indeed.

They’re water, wind and stain-resistant, making them the perfect shorts for summer travel and hours in the sun. They carry the same DNA as the excellent and much-loved Mack Weldon Radius Pants, which is great news if you value menswear that moves with you, wears well over time and looks just plain great. In fact, I’d recommend that you pick up the Radius Pants to wear to the office (for example), and then keep your new favorite summer shorts handy to wear on the weekend.

SHOP: The Mack Weldon Radius Shorts

These shorts also get the details right in terms of fit. The Mack Weldon Radius Shorts feature a 9-inch inseam, which should work quite well if you’re on the the taller side, or if you want men’s shorts that hit right at the kneecap. They’re also sleek in terms of design — no cargo pockets in sight. And as you might expect, the Mack Weldon Radius Shorts are affordably priced at $78, leaving you with some extra cash if you want to stock up on, say, the Mack Weldon Vesper Polo or the classic Mack Weldon Pima Crew Neck. That’s another great selling point about the Mack Weldon Radius Shorts: Versatility is the name of the game.

They feature four-way stretch for maximum comfort, no matter what you wear ’em with, and neutral color options like True Navy or Asphalt help you maximize the most bang for your buck. Add in the flexible waist and belt loops — unlike the drawstring shorts you’ve been wearing, these ones will need a belt — and you’ve got yourself some of the best men’s shorts for summer. And by that, I mean this summer, and next summer, and the summer after that… stock up accordingly, folks.

The Friday Read: Live Music with Elysian Brewing, Taylor Stitch Menswear & TUDOR’s New Watch

Taylor Stitch Clothing Review - Must Read This Before Buying

Quick, can you guess the brand featured above? If you guessed standout San Francisco menswear purveyors Taylor Stitch, you’re correct. They’re the perfect brand to lead into today’s Friday Read, where I give you plenty of gear and reading recommendations to head into the weekend. Going all the way back to 2015, (this blog’s second year), Taylor Stitch has been one of my favorite brands. They’ve got breezy short-sleeve shirts, expertly crafted chinos, durable chambray shirts and much more. Enough with the pleasantries, though: Just know that this is a brand to keep on your radar, in case it ever slipped off. I’m all about Taylor Stitch this weekend.

Speaking of weekends, well, I’m in Florida this weekend and once again getting some quality time with my dogs and my family. I’ll be back in Brooklyn for the Fourth of July holiday next week, which will certainly include a classic visit to Coney Island. Speaking of holiday weekends (which include quality menswear and beer), take this next suggestion and use it wisely. If you want your menswear and beer served up together, along with a sharp soundtrack, my menswear-music-craft beer newsletter, The Style Guide In Brief, is surely the way to. go Hit Subscribe before tomorrow, because I send out a weekend dispatch (and a Tuesday pick-me-up dispatch, too). It’s fun and it’s free, as I always say, and it’s the right way to lead into the weekend. You know what else works to start the weekend off right? My reading and shopping picks below. Cheers, my friends.

  • If you’re anything like me, you’ve been sorely missing live music over these past, oh, 15 months or so. But slowly, surely, ever-so-slightly, shows are coming back. And to celebrate, pioneering Seattle brewery Elysian Brewing (celebrating 25 years this year!) is offering a seriously cool “Cheers to Live Music” program. Now through September 6th, anyone who purchases a ticket to a concert can get a nationwide rebate on a six-pack of Elysian Space Dust IPA or Elysian Contact Haze IPA between now and September 6th. That’s all summer long — how cool is that?? If you’re over 21, visit this Web site, fill out an online form and upload a photo or screenshot of your concert purchase receipt, PLUS the UPC and receipt of the Elysian Space Dust or Contact Haze six-pack. Then, boom. Rebate secured for free beer to enjoy before your next concert. It doesn’t get any better than that, folks.
  • Who doesn’t love some relaxing summer fun in the sun, right? It’s even better with a refreshing drink in your hand, plus a breezy and lightweight Tommy Bahama shirt, yes? Tommy Bahama is putting it all together with The Marlin Bar: Cocktails with Tommy Bahama book, which retails for $40, is packed with the brand’s signature drinks and appetizers, and lastly… is an homage to the Tommy Bahama Marlin Bar itself. The Marlin Bar is billed as a “cocktail party at your friend’s house,” with casual and eclectic, tropical flavors, and the new book should offer more of the same from one of the best retailers for men when it comes to laidback, breezy vibes. I can think of nothing better for summer… can you?
  • I’ve got one for all the fans of rugged and refined watches among us. TUDOR has long been a reliable source for some of the most exceptional watches on the planet, and that’s certainly the case with the brand’s latest release. I got to dive into the remarkable TUDOR Black Bay Fifty-Eight Bronze for Maxim. It’s a watch that’s made with innovative materials and a finish that’s going to age incredibly well over time. Read all about it now and put it on your style wish list.

Before you go, allow me to tell you about one more crucial piece of summer gear.

Luckily, I’ve got you covered with my guide to the Wellen Seawool Hoodie here on the blog. Shop it at Huckberry, then layer up accordingly for summer adventures aplenty.

The Thursday Buy: The Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Polo Belongs in Your Closet Now

Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Polo

Quickly, go over your mental packing list as you prep for your first (or next) summer road trip. You’ve probably got your rugged leather weekender bag all set, and hopefully, it’s packed with men’s style essentials for summer from Taylor Stitch. But something very well might be missing, and that missing item? It’s one of the best polos for men, done the way only Taylor Stitch can craft a rugged-yet-wearable polo. That’s because the Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Polo is truly one-of-a-kind through and through, and it checks all the right boxes as far as a polo you can wear for a summer getaway (and well beyond that). Yes indeed, add this classic men’s polo to your wardrobe and your packing list, and get ready to be impressed with how often you can find uses for this versatile men’s shirt.

It’s nothing like the polos you might be used to wearing, which were often too baggy and perhaps featured a large logo (you’ve got a polo in mind already, right?). The Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Polo, however, is all crisp and modern style, featuring a tailored fit and the sort of fabric that’ll make you do a double-take. That’s because this polo is made from the brand’s proprietary Heavy Bag fabric, a blend of upcycled cotton and recycled polyester that breathes easy and looks great.

SHOP: The Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Polo 

Best polos for men

As one might expect, that’s only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to your new favorite polo. Again, the tailored fit is a major bonus, meaning you can wear this polo to the office on its own with Taylor Stitch chinos as easily as you can layer it up with your new summer blazer. Crucially, the Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Polo looks great with everything from slim tan shorts to light wash denim, and you can even wear it to the beach with vintage swim shorts — before grabbing a cold beachside beer, of course. If you fancy wearing easygoing Taylor Stitch lounge pants alongside your Taylor Stitch polo, well, you can certainly do that, too.

Plus, the Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Polo, with its slightly longer three-button placket, is just the right balance between dressy and casual. If you want a polo you can wear with a blazer, my friends, this is the one. It’s also helpful that one of the best polos for men comes in two essential colors that are neutral enough to pair with anything: Both Olive and Natural are going to look absolutely great this summer. The Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Polo is your perfect summer style move: Don’t leave home without it.

Wellen Seawool Hoodie

My friends, if you read the blog, you know I’m of the opinion that all of your gear should be of the highest quality, and that even includes something as simple and seemingly casual as your lightweight summer hoodie. If you think this that one of the best men’s hoodies is a category that you can simply overlook, I’m here to tell you that once the sun goes down at the beach bonfire and you’ve only got your T-shirt for comfort (no matter how stylish it might be!), well, you very well might want to plan ahead — the Wellen Seawool Hoodie is here to save the day.

If you’re not familiar with sustainable menswear from Wellen as of yet, well, you’re in for quite the treat. I’ve talked about Wellen here on the blog in the past, and it’s through products like the Wellen Seawool Hoodie  that the brand just keeps getting better and better.

The magic of the covetable and cool Wellen Seawool Hoodie lies in the unique fabric blend that they’ve dreamed up.

#OOTD: How to Wear a Polo for Men This Summer

Just as with how to wear a camp collar shirt, for instance, wearing a polo the right way for summer is both subtle and yet surprisingly easy. That is to say, if you find the right polo. And that’s why, ladies and gentlemen, I’m recommending you pick a newly classic and easygoing, yet stylish, Todd Snyder polo. It’s every bit as comfortable as your favorite T-shirt, yet with the sort of polish (and USA-made construction) that you’d expect from one of the country’s foremost menswear designers. It even comes in a range of neat and engaging colors, all the better to invest in the best and stock up on multiple options. It gets even better from there as you search for tips on how to wear a polo for men, because I’m recommending you team it with a pair of the best men’s lightweight pants, some sleek loafers and more.

Consider this the sort of #OOTD that you can wear to the office or out to a lovely patio dinner on the weekends, because it really is every bit that versatile. It all comes down to the fact that, naturally, you’re starting things off with one of the best polos for men, then building your ensemble from there. A polo is both a step up from a T-shirt and yet a breezy step down from a dress shirt, which can often run hot at times. Hence, the made-in-Los-Angeles Todd Snyder polo you see here.
