Folks, thanks for joining me on this fine holiday Friday — I hope your week went swimmingly, and I can promise it’s about to get even better. Yes, because it’s Friday, to be sure. But beyond that, Taylor Stitch is still (as of press time) running the Taylor Stitch Winter Sale, with some of the best menswear deals around on rugged, classic gear aplenty. I talked about the sale earlier this week on the blog, but consider this a prime winter weekend refresher.
Whether you’re in the market for a timeless trucker jacket or a cozy winter sweater — or something else well-suited for. say, a holiday party, this sale has just about everything you need, and at 20 percent off, no less. Pretty solid for a weekend kickstart, yes?
There’s plenty more where that came from in terms of holiday cheer and holiday style. In my neck of the woods, I’ve got quite the early start when it comes to festivities — this weekend, I’ll be in Las Vegas with none other than OOFOS active recovery footwear. They’re the official active recovery footwear brand of the Las Vegas Raiders, so a select group of media are putting their shoes to the test.
Of course, we’re also taking in the sights and sounds of Vegas, along with some outdoor fun (whitewater rafting on Lake Mead, anyone?). From there, I’m headed off to sunny Florida to start the Christmas week properly with family. As ever, keep up with the fun on my Instagram, and for now, dive into the rest of my winter weekend style picks. Cheers, my friends!
- Over the past two years or so, I’ve gotten some fresh ink for the first time ever (five tattoos in total!). It’s been a fun journey and a reflective process deciding how I’d like to adorn my skin (of course, with tattoos featuring The Replacements and The Strokes!), and along the way, I’ve learned about caring for said ink, too. A key step in that process? Meeting the good folks at Mad Rabbit Tattoo, who’ve developed a stylish, highly effective brand that targets tattoo care, healing and enhancement. These are some of the best tattoo products I’ve seen (both in presentation and quality!), and you should certainly check out Mad Rabbit’s Holiday Tattoo Sets when you get the chance.
- Don’t get me wrong, I love showing off my tattoos whenever I can in warm weather, but winter is a different beast. Enter my latest AskMen guide to the best men’s scarves, with picks to suit every style and price point (if I do say so myself).
- Here’s one other writing shoutout from yours truly: Earlier this week, I shone the spotlight on a new, stylish pair of men’s boots from Austin-based HELM Boots. The boots in question? The HELM Finn Boots, a refined-yet-rugged set of men’s Chelsea boots I’m very much looking forward to wearing more and more this winter. Check out my review here.
My friends, thanks for being here and for supporting The Style Guide this holiday season and beyond! I hope my guide to the best winter scarves, or perhaps my guide to the new HELM Finn Boots, prove helpful this weekend. Stay tuned for more holiday shopping picks tomorrow, Sunday, Monday and beyond. ‘Tis the season!
