The theme of the week here on your favorite Brooklyn style blog has been how to dress in style for early fall, and with good reason — soon enough, breezy weather will be upon us, and it always pays off to gear up early with the most rugged menswear on the market. You’re in luck, because legendary heritage outfitter Filson is welcoming a crop of the best new menswear that gets better each and every day, and that’s especially true when it comes to crafting one of the most classic, best shirts for men.
If you’re searching for the sort of men’s style essentials you can shop now — in the depths of August — and then wear come September and October (and beyond!), the Filson Lightweight Alaska Guide Shirt is your best bet, to say the very least. It’s a Filson icon for a reason, and like, say, Filson’s Waffle Thermal Crew, it’s an early fall style pick you won’t want to leave home without.
Crucially, the Filson Lightweight Alaska Guide Shirt helps you bridge the gap between summer and fall, and it all comes down to construction and quality. It’s been described by Filson as an “all-season workhorse,” and a lightweight 5oz. cotton that’s still durable and yet breathable speaks to that claim quite nicely.
The Filson Lightweight Alaska Guide Shirt is also made with pleated shoulders for ease of movement — and layering, when weather starts to turn colder on you. For now, you should keep an eye on the Filson Lightweight Alaska Guide Shirt — a number of classic colors are up for grabs, with vibrant, classic patterns on the way later this fall. It’s never too soon to stock up on the best men’s style essentials, and my friends at Filson have you covered.
