The Friday Read: The Best Long-Sleeve Shirts, Rugged Fall Gear from Outerknown & the Best Pomades

Levi's Wellthread X Outerknown Clean up Dirty Denim | The Manual

Folks, if you caught last Friday’s weekly recap, perhaps you’re familiar with the brand featured above. That’d be sustainable menswear brand Outerknown, always a reliable company to shop if you want eco-conscious menswear at agreeable prices. They’re my recommended brand to send you into the weekend, of course, and although its Warehouse Sale ended earlier this week, there’s really not a bad time to shop the Kelly Slater-founded brand. Consider that my first recommendation in a weekly recap post that’s positively packed with ’em. As you’ll see below (and as you know if you follow me on Instagram), I’ve been staying busy with menswear bylines aplenty at some of my favorite sites — hopefully, these picks will guide you when it comes to your dressing and grooming routines.

As for me, I’m going to enjoy a Brooklyn weekend with hot coffee and cold beer at the ready, with some stops lined up at a few of my favorite haunts. What’s on your weekend to-do list? To get things rolling the right way, how about some shopping and reading? Yes, indeed. Take a look and let’s get to it.

Men's Sweats | Mott & Bow | Elevated Basics. Grounded Price.
  • Here’s a very apt style and shopping suggestion for you with a laidback weekend on the horizon. Earlier this week, I wrote all about the best sweatpants for fall and winter here on the blog, and they come from a brand that makes your favorite jeans — that’d be Mott and Bow. Get your new sweats for this weekend right here.
  • Have you started to head back to the office yet? Every now and again? When you do, even if your office leans more casual, it pays off to look and feel your best. That starts with your routine, which can get quite the nice upgrade if you check out my guide to the best pomades for men these days. Head to AskMen for the latest, folks.
  • Layering is of the essence in the fall and winter months, particularly when the thermostat starts to drop. That’s where another menswear guide of mine comes into play. Over at The Manual, I’m offering up my top picks for the best long-sleeve shirts for men, with something in every category and price point.

Before you roll into the weekend, I’ll point you in the right direction — in terms of the best new boots for men, that is. I wrote all about the latest iteration of the Huckberry x Danner Vertigo 917 Gold Rush Boots, a pair of boots that simply can’t be topped in terms of comfort, quality and style points. You won’t want to take these off – trust me, folks. With all that being said, here’s to the weekend, an upcoming Style Pick of the Week and cold, fresh beer. Cheers!
