It’s a bit of a different Friday than usual here at The Style Guide — for one, I’m not in Brooklyn, prepping for a weekend rock show or brewery visit, but I’m en route as we speak to the lovely, wooded north of Vermont, where I’m spending the weekend visiting Darn Tough Socks. Yes, that’s right: I’ll be getting an inside look — factory tour and all — at some of the best USA-made socks on the market (if not the best). I’ve worn Darn Tough socks myself for years, and I’d encourage you to check the brand out if you need new socks to wear with your favorite boots, for instance. In the meantime, be sure to follow along with all of the sock-making, Vermont beer-sipping fun on my Instagram.
I’ve stayed plenty busy this week in the days leading up to my trip, be it writing about the best work jackets at SPY.com or covering a seriously cool new Bushmills x Peaky Blinders partnership at Maxim. Of course, there are also a few more blog posts coming your way at this site in the days ahead, but for now, I’ll get your weekend going with a few choice shopping picks from some of my favorite brands. Cheers, folks!
- Here’s a deal you’d do well not to miss if you want to upgrade your weekend sweatpants for spring. Over at Buck Mason, you’ll find an exceedingly rare Buck Mason promo running this weekend only: Get 20 percent off a men’s sweat set when buying a hoodie and sweatpant combination. The brand takes great care to make some of the best sweatpants for men, and now is a truly solid time to save some hard-earned cash while upgrading your laidback loungewear game.
- Denim lovers, this one’s for you. Now through March 12th — that’s tomorrow, my friends — head online to L.A.-based denim brand DSTLD, makers of the best men’s jeans and more (as you’ve hopefully read on the blog, of course). While there, use the code WOW50 to take 50 percent off everything from the best chambray shirting to essential denim and more. It’s not going to be around the entire weekend, so do yourself a favor and start shopping ASAP.
- I mentioned that you should know DSTLD if you read the blog, right? Well, here’s as good a way as any to get properly acquainted — just yesterday, I covered one of the best chambray shirts to buy now and wear all spring, especially with a pair of well-made DSTLD men’s jeans. Oh, and that discount? You should make good use of it starting in 3…2…1.
Before we head into the weekend, and before I bundle up to enjoy Vermont, here’s one more helpful style suggestion for you. The place to go this season, starting right now, to upgrade your spring jacket rotation? That’s Huckberry, makers of some of the best waxed jackets and a whole lot more. In that vein, I wrote about the best waxed jackets at Huckberry earlier this week — get ready to add to your wish list ASAP. Cheers and thanks for reading!
