They say that when wearing any fine tailoring — or, for instance, one of the best men’s blazers — it’s crucial that the blazer or suit jacket doesn’t wear you. As in, your choice for one of the best blazers for men should look natural, stylish, comfortable and well-fitting. And as we move into a new season (fall, the best time for menswear on the market!), you should look to hit all the right notes with the Todd Snyder Italian Knit Sportcoat. It’s the perfect example of a blazer that doesn’t “wear you” — rather, it’s got a soft-shouldered, more easygoing design, exceptionally soft Italian cotton fabric and plenty of style points.
And when I say plenty of style points, I mean it: Todd Snyder is known for taking traditionally stuffy classics and making them more casual, easygoing and cool. The Todd Snyder Knit Sportcoat is a perfect example of this approach, without any of the padding or design details that can make a blazer uncomfortable to wear.
Plus, the Dark Brown color fits right in with fall style essentials, which is exactly the sort of move you should be looking to make right now (and classic Navy isn’t a bad move, either). Heck, Todd Snyder already makes one of the best summer blazers, so consider this like a fall and winter-worthy alternative, too.
Like most Todd Snyder menswear picks, it’s pricier than average (quite a bit pricier at $698), but it’s absolutely worth it to invest in the Todd Snyder Italian Knit Sportcoat. It’s the kind of blazer you can wear with, say, a Todd Snyder T-shirt as easily as a classic Oxford shirt and the best men’s chinos, for instance. Make no mistake, it’s also a blazer you can wear with jeans, plus your favorite pair of leather boots. If you ask me, that’s a standout fall style look, and you won’t regret investing in one of the best blazers for men this season. Go to it, my friends.
The idea of curating a wardrobe filled with clothes you love to wear sounds like a lofty goal at times, right? But what if I told you it was sometimes as easy as scouting out, say, some of the best on-sale menswear on the market? It’s why we’re here today, after all, and it’s easier than you think when you dive into the men’s style essentials on tap at one of the country’s best menswear designers: That’d be Alabama-based Billy Reid.
Of course, Mr. Reid and co. are favorites of this Brooklyn style writer, and perhaps yourself, what with picks like one of the best men’s polos and the famed Billy Reid Bond Peacoat. And right now, the Billy Reid Men’s Sale offers up to 60 percent off some of the best men’s style picks of the moment. We’ve talked in the past about the Billy Reid Summer Sale, of course, so think of this like a helpful reminder to restock your wardrobe ASAP with the best menswear deals.
Naturally, there’s lots to love about the Billy Reid Menswear Sale, from the chance to shop the best on-sale men’s shirts to stylish henleys and T-shirts aplenty (like the one shown above). These are top-notch, designer-quality picks made with premium materials and timeless style in mind, to say the very least, and they won’t be around for long (heck, the Billy Reid Tuscumbia Shirt is nearly 50 percent off right now, and that’s just scratching the surface).
Folks, let’s dive into another week as we cruise into these final few days of August — and if that’s the case (which it is!), then it’s high time you shopped the best early fall menswear from one of your favorite retailers. The retailer in question, of course, is Huckberry, the San Fran and Austin-based curators and purveyors of some of the most rugged menswear on the planet.
Perhaps you’re already well aware of both Huckberry’s in-house brands — like the famed Flint and Tinder Waxed Trucker Jacket — as well as its penchant for stocking and selling brands like Taylor Stitch. Take it all together, and the Huckberry Fall 2022 Collection features some of the best seasonal menswear for guys on the market right now.
If ever it seems too early to start shopping for fall, just check your calendar and know that the best season in menswear will certainly be well upon us before you know it. Luckily, the Huckberry Fall 2022 Collection is the best place to start shopping early and often for the best fall menswear, my friends, and you heard it here first. Cheers!
As we step ever closer towards fall, and as you slowly but surely break out your collection of the best men’s boots, perhaps you’re realizing that your footwear lineup has a few pieces missing. Like, say, some rugged-yet-versatile lace-up boots from a brand like HELM Boots? Sure, the brand also makes some of the most stylish leather sneakers on the market, but it’s the best boots for men where the Austin-based company truly excels.
And that brings us nicely into our Sunday Sale. Simply hop on over to the HELM Boots Sale section to shop at least 20 percent off your new favorite pair of boots, be it the dependable, wedge-soled HELM Jakob Boots (as shown at the top of the page), the ever-versatile HELM Declan Chukka Boots, or a set of stylish sneaker boots.
Whatever pair your wardrobe needs, from rugged lace-up boots to timeless chukka boots, I’d wager you’re going to find it in the HELM Sale section (and remember, you can also snag 15 percent off your first order at HELM — talk about one heck of a deal for the best on-sale boots of the moment).
Seriously, the good folks at HELM Boots can do it all, and they use methods like Blake stitched construction and handsome leathers for maximum durability and style. These styles are selling mighty quickly, so I’ll let you go early today, all the better to shop the best boots for men. See you out there this fall, my friends.
As summer draws to a close slowly but surely, it’s time to turn your attention towards the business of getting ready for fall with the most rugged menswear on the market. Of course, you know that if you read The Style Guide – and if you’ve been keeping up with the goings-on at Filson, you know the legendary Pacific Northwest heritage outfitter can help you gear up for (eventual) cold weather in style. Perhaps you’ve already picked up one of the best crewneck shirts for layering, or else snagged one of the best lightweight shirts for men — but let’s amp things up even further today, shall we?
The Filson Lined Tin Cloth Cruiser Jacket is our featured Style Pick for good reason: It’s a certified classic, built to last and fashioned with ridiculously tough specs, and it’s now back and better than ever in a fall-friendly color.
It really is the Tin Cloth fabric that makes the Filson Lined Tin Cloth Cruiser Jacket such a fan favorite — it’s been around for more than a century, after all. Water-resistant waxed duck canvas stands up to the elements, to long days on the job and in the yard, and to blustery fall breezes when trekking through town to your favorite coffee shop. Seriously, the Filson Lined Tin Cloth Cruiser Jacket can just about do it all when it comes to casually rugged style and performance.
In fact, you’d also do very well to pair it up with essentials like a classic henley shirt or a Filson flannel shirt when temperatures start to plummet. Of course, you can wear the Filson Lined Tin Cloth Cruiser Jacket — in either the Cinder or Dark Tan colorways — with everything from durable Filson work pants on the job to your favorite pair of blue jeans for classic off-duty style. As I’ve said before, it’s never too early to get geared up for what lies ahead, and the best fall menswear from Filson can help you get there.
My friends, good morning and welcome to another Friday Read here at your favorite menswear blog. We’re kicking things off in a slightly different fashion today, as my locale at the moment is a bit different from the ordinary. As we speak, I’m in the iconic city of London for a long-awaited trip to the very festival you see at the top of the page: That’d be All Points East, headlined by my favorite band… The National. Over the years, perhaps you’ve read my musings on the importance of travel, music and of course, traveling in style to see music, and it all comes together now on a fine, hot London summer day.
I was just in London — staying in the exceptionally cool neighborhood of Shoreditch — to celebrate 100 years of Dickies workwear (check out that link for a full story on the brand!), and I’m so thrilled to be back. Seeing as I bought these tickets last November, it’s been a long time coming.
You can follow along on my Instagram to keep up with all the fun, but in the meantime, just know that I’m very excited to see such a stunning band in such a cool city — and that’s an understatement. Also in the meantime: Let’s get back to menswear and get the rest of your weekend started in style, shall we? Sounds great to me. Cheers!
Here’s something I think you’re going to like quite a bit to start your weekend. Billy Reid, one of the country’s finest menswear designers and a personal favorite of your Brooklyn style writer, is giving stylish folks like yourself the chance to save an extra 25 percent on Final Sale items, now through September 5th. Go to it and refresh your wardrobe with the best men’s style essentials in time for Labor Day weekend and beyond.
We’ll keep the fall style must-haves rolling right here with my next recommendation. The team at Free Fly Apparel, makers of surprisingly stylish performance menswear that can take you anywhere, just launched the Free Fly Apparel Fall Collection, and it’s packed with durable canvas pants, easy-to-layer quarter-zip sweaters, lightweight hoodies and much more. Be sure to shop the best new fall menswear in time for your first fall getaway.
Now here’s a fun, aspirational way to close out today’s Friday Read. Over the past year and change, I’ve become a fan of fine Scotch (acquired taste though it might be!), and that’s why it’s so cool to see the jaw-dropping new whisky prototype from The Macallan and Bentley (yes, the automaker Bentley). Head to Maxim to read about some of the coolest whisky on the market.
So, that trio of reading and shopping picks is going to round out today’s Friday Read. I’ve got some London pints to enjoy — I especially loved Camden Town Brewery during my June trip, along with the speakeasy Bermondsey Arts Club, and I’m hopeful to get back to both this next time around, too! Again, you can (and should!) follow along on my Instagram to keep up with my travels across the pond. Cheers and thanks for reading!
The key with building a wardrobe filled with the best menswear — or at least, a wardrobe that’s well on its way to hitting all the right notes — can be a bit more simple than you might think. Start with classic building blocks and go from there, like one of the best bomber jackets. Better still — as we head into the blustery days of early fall — if that stylish bomber jacket is well-made, highly wearable and also on sale right now for 50 percent off. It comes from Everlane, which has a knack for selling the best on-sale style essentials out there.
Think of it like a Thursday edition of our Tuesday Steal series, and then head over to Everlane to shop your new favorite bomber jacket. That’s right: Although you might find it hard to believe, the Everlane Track Bomber Jacket is on sale for just $44 right now, marked down from $88 and here to carry you from late summer into early fall without missing a beat. Made from 100 percent organic cotton, it’s a stylish bomber jacket that wears more like a casual crewneck sweatshirt, yet looks much more ready for, well, just about anything out there.
The Everlane Track Bomber Jacket is more like a hybrid piece of outerwear and athleisure gear than anything use, using that soft organic cotton construction to carry you through casual days aplenty. It’s the kind of jacket that would wear quite well with casual style picks, like an Everlane T-shirt and a pair of classic Everlane blue jeans.
However, you can also class up the Everlane Track Bomber Jacket with a timeless Oxford shirt, those very same blue jeans and a pair of Everlane men’s shoes for a go-anywhere look that’ll pull double-duty at the office or on a weekend road trip. Between the agreeable, easy-to-layer fit, the crisp Kingfisher Blue colorway and helpful exterior pockets, the Everlane Track Bomber Jacket checks all the right boxes — and it might be the most affordable jacket for men on the market right now.
There are some menswear releases that catch you by surprise at first, but make a ton of sense when you get right down to it – like the idea behind the brand that makes your favorite jeans releasing one of the best men’s polo shirts. That’s precisely what Mott and Bow has set its mind to as of late, and the NYC-based, direct-to-consumer denim brand continues to build off its high-quality jeans — all in an effort to slowly take over your wardrobe, of course.
Helpfully, the Mott and Bow Jersey Polo features some unique touches that separate it from a crowded and competitive market for the best men’s polo. It’s made using a fit that’s neither too tight nor too loose, but the best feature on the Mott and Bow Jersey Polo might be the curved hem — it’s a flattering touch that helps this stylish new polo look great on every body type.
Plus, this polo is available in sizes up to XXL, and the Mott and Bow Jersey Polo comes in a range of timeless, wear-with-anything colors, including Navy, Dark Grey and a crisp White. Best of all is the combination of quality and price.
If you’ve been keeping up with the blog as of late, you know that it’s more crucial than ever to start gearing up for early fall with the best men’s style essentials — like the best boots for men, of course. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: If you can find those style essentials on sale, that’s all the better, and that brings us to the pair of rugged leather chukka boots available today at a nice discount.
You can add the HELM Declan Boots to that list, and you can rest even easier knowing they’re 30 percent off right now. Yes, that’s right: That discount takes these stylish leather chukka boots down below $200, a whale of deal — and a good reason to act quickly, since your new favorite chukka boots are selling fast.
Why go all in right now on the HELM Declan Boots? It’s simple, really. They’ve got all the hallmarks of dependable, durable style through and through, from a profile that’s sleek yet rugged — and wearable with slim chinos or more casual blue jeans — to the quality construction. The HELM Declan Boots are made with resoleable Blake construction (less expensive than Goodyear welting, but no less functional), and my favorite pair in particular uses handsome brown Balthazar leather that’ll get better with age.
Of course, you can also find the HELM Declan Boots in the HELM Boots Sale section in sharp Tan suede, a style that fits right in with other seasonal looks (like olive chinos, for instance). Now, sizes of the HELM Declan Boots are moving plenty quickly given that agreeable sale price of $175, so if you want a new pair of the best men’s chukka boots to call your own this fall, act now.
The essential in question today is but one way to round out your next summer style ensemble — or really, any style ensemble any time of year: It’s the classic, crisply designed Timex Marlin Watch, and it’s one of the coolest watches for men to buy now. You can find it, of course, within Bespoke Post’s well-stocked section of Everyday Carry Essentials, a fitting location to score accessories that elevate any outfit.
The real key here with the Timex Marlin Watch is the blend of accessibility (it’s priced to sell at $259), plus sharp style (note the contrasting deep blue dial and dressy tan leather strap). Plus, the Timex Marlin Watch clocks in at an agreeable 40mm in terms of the stainless steel case, and the day and date window detailing on the dial is a nice touch, too.
