It’s time to kick off the weekend in fine form once again with some of the best winter menswear, and plenty beyond that, which you should expect from our weekly Friday Read roundups. I’ve been doing the Friday Read in some form since 2015, crazily enough, and it’s a big one in particular here in Brooklyn for your friendly neighborhood style writer: Today, believe it or not, is my 30th birthday! I started this blog from my bedroom in my college house back in 2013, and I’m stunned and amazed on a daily basis at the support and the readership here and on social media (give me a follow on Instagram!), not to mention ongoing interest in my other writing work at more than a few top menswear outlets. So, right off the bat: A massive THANK YOU for reading and supporting my work! I’ve already had a wonderful start to my birthday with a few incredible days in Florida with my family exploring Disney World (yes!) and the incredible Wizarding World of Harry Potter, which you no doubt saw if you, again, follow me on Instagram — what a way to kick things off!
Now, to business and to one of the best weekend menswear sales, yes? Sure thing, I don’t see why not. To get your weekend going, head to the Taylor Stitch Winter Clearout to take an additional 25 percent off Taylor Stitch Last Call items. It’s as simple as that, and it only runs until Sunday. Go right ahead and get on it, folks.
So, that’s but one way to make sure the weekend gets rolling in the right direction. As for me, I intend on doing the same, starting with a day off around the borough heading to some of my favorite spots, like Prospect Park and Threes Brewing, plus the famed Sycamore Bar & Flower Shop. Beyond that, the weekend is only set to get better: Saturday night, I’m trekking into Manhattan to see the one, the only, famed Philly rock band The War On Drugs at the iconic Madison Square Garden! I wrote about my love of the band in my music and menswear newsletter, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to keep the weekend moving along in such rocking fashion. As for the rest of your weekend, here are a few other choice reading and shopping selections from yours truly. Thanks once again for your support and readership! Cheers!
- It’s never too early to start shopping for the best Valentine’s Day gifts for your loved ones, whether you check out my SPY guide to the best Valentine’s Day gifts or better still, shop the always well-curated Huckberry Valentine’s Day Shop. It’s got gifts for every sort of adventure partner in your life, and that’s something I appreciate. I know whoever you’re gifting will feel the same way, so start shopping!
- Back in November, I had the lifetime opportunity to head down to Mexico (specifically, Guadalajara and Tequila!) with Jose Cuervo Tequila to celebrate the newest artistic collaboration from the famed tequila brand. Now, you can buy the latest Reserva de la Familia bottle for yourself, and you can also read more about my trip for Maxim.com as of this week. I’ll drink to that this weekend!
- Now, last but certainly not least, here’s something to help you step into your weekend — literally, at that. Here on the blog just yesterday, I wrote all about the best men’s boot socks to upgrade your favorite pair of winter footwear. They’re courtesy of the sustainably made accessories brand Arvin Goods, and consider my Arvin Goods review a highly positive one: You need these socks on your feet. Head here to read the full dispatch.
So, that’ll wrap up today’s birthday edition of the Friday Read (not something that happens all that often, I can assure you!). Here’s to a stylish and warm winter weekend, approaching NYC snowstorm and all. Again, thanks so very much for reading and for supporting my work! Lastly: CHEERS!
