The Friday Read: New Gear from Olivers Apparel, The Best Fall Henley & How to Wear Desert Boots

Folks, does the above photo have you thinking of changing seasons, of adding layers to your rotation and really dressing for, well, fall 2021? That’s what the good people at performance menswear brand Olivers Apparel have delivered with the brand’s new arrivals, which happen to be packed with some of the best fall menswear, including easy-to-layer pieces like the Stadium Shirt Jacket. These are gear picks you can wear for work or play, with ease. You can certainly hit the road or the trail with the brand, which focuses on moisture-wicking, stretch fabrics all throughout its line. In fact, these are the kind of picks I’m bringing along with me this weekend on a trip back to Michigan for a longtime elementary school friend’s wedding on the the coast of lovely Lake Michigan. It’s been a whirlwind week of writing in the meantime, but rest assured that we’ll close the week out the right way with a few choice picks (and of course, another entry in my ongoing menswear and music newsletter — subscribe before it hits your inbox on Saturday morning!). In the meantime, here are a few reads to get you into the spirit of fall style and fall shopping. Here’s to a Pure Michigan trip, too – cheers!

The Best Menswear Reads of the Week

  • Have you been keeping up with the blog this week? If not, I’d urge you to turn back the clock to, well, yesterday, when I covered the best fall henley right here on this site. And folks, one of the best men’s henleys happens to come from rugged heritage gear purveyor Filson, longtime makers of gear you can count on without missing a beat. That sounds pretty ideal for fall weekend adventures, does it not? Again, head here to check it out.
  • How about this for another fall read and fall style recommendation? I’ve been writing for men’s lifestyle site The Manual for well over five years now, believe it or not, and it’s always exciting to dive into new territory. I did that this week with my guide on how to wear desert boots, a solid decision day in and day out throughout the entire fall season. Don’t you agree? Head over to The Manual this weekend to get my take.
  • Here’s a fun one for fans of cold beer and friendship, plus football. Over at Maxim, I wrote about a seriously fun Miller Lite giveaway that offers you and five friends the chance to win free Miller Lite for life, plus some Miller Lite-themed championship rings. It’s about as neat and enjoyable a giveaway as you could ask for this football season. Cheers!

I’ll leave you with a couple reminders right now: Hit “Subscribe” on my music and menswear newsletter, The Style Guide In Brief, before the weekend starts in earnest. Next, check out another crucial fall style move — GREATS is making some of the best sneakers for fall, and my latest See Now, Buy Now post covered those very sneakers. Add them to your wardrobe now, revisit some of these stylish pieces if you need weekend fashion inspiration, and above all, thanks for reading — stay stylish!
