Here’s to lounging all the way into a nice Easter weekend, right, my friends? And here’s to doing it in style with a pair of shorts like the Taylor Stitch Apres Shorts, which you can get right now at Huckberry. It’s not the last time you’ll be seeing these shorts on the blog, and it’s mighty fitting that they’re available in time for what’s shaping up to be quite the warm spring (at least in my neck of the woods). Do yourself a favor and go on: Get your new favorite shorts.
It’s the kind of style move I’ll be looking to make around Brooklyn myself this weekend, and it’s promising to be a busy one, at that. In addition to my ongoing writing work at SPY — more on that in a second — I’m going to be making the trek out to hip, industrial Brooklyn neighborhood Bushwick to see a show at eclectic venue Elsewhere. The show in question?
A concert by Scottish post-punk rockers We Were Promised Jetpacks, a band that I reviewed this past fall for Atwood Magazine. Give them a listen for a mix of alternately dreamy and sharp post-punk, and be sure to keep up with all the fun on my Instagram. Here’s to the rest of your weekend and your Friday Read below.
- If you’ve been on the hunt for a new spring jacket, I’ve found one of the best spring jackets to buy now, courtesy of the good folks at Buck Mason. It’s the Buck Mason Ghia Storm Stopper Driver Jacket, a play off the classic Harrington jacket that you can rock with just about any other casual spring style staples in your wardrobe. Shop accordingly, my friends.
- Minimal, sharp and sleek style is the name of the game these days, and that’s no more true than when it comes to your everyday carry. Well, do I have something for you. My writing at SPY is one of the more fun parts of my weekly slate of projects, and I had a great time covering the best slim wallets for men. Upgrade your daily haul by slimming things down today.
- Here’s a helpful one from this very blog if you need to upgrade your basics game as well as your daily carry: Head over to Arvin Goods — and check out this blog post on sustainable socks — to get the refresh (and the eco-conscious style!) your sock drawer needs.
That’ll bring this suitably spring style read to a close today: Stay safe out there, stay stylish and hey, Happy Easter!
