Style Pick of the Week: Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt

Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt

Whether you’re a skilled banjo player, an explorer or have a tendency toward days at home, this is one of the best shirt jackets for men you can buy.

When you know, you know — when you step outside on a crisp, cool fall morning, you know what lies in store: Fall adventures and of course, the need for rugged fall gear to take on the day. That, my friends, is where the Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt comes into play, one of the best shirt jackets for men this fall (and of course, well beyond). This timeless men’s shirt jacket is tough-as-nails, easy to layer, built for inclement fall weather, and made to last and last — and last. That sounds pretty ideal for the season, right? It’s built to act as a standalone outer layer, thanks to PrimaLoft insulation that’ll keep you toasty on cold fall mornings and days in the field, preferably layered atop a Filson henley. The Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt is built every bit as well as you’d expect coming from Filson, made for Pacific Northwest mornings (or days at home, upstate or in the Midwest).

When the going gets tough, you should assuredly turn toward one of the best shirt jackets for men, seeing as this particular number is made with a tough, 4oz. cotton exterior finished off with a water-resistant waxed treatment. It delivers the goods when you need it, to say the least.

SHOP: The Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt

Filson

A reliable, dependable and rugged shirt jacket for fall and winter.

One of the best men’s shirt jackets needs to step up in the clutch, and it helps if it looks darn good while doing it. The Marsh Olive color is a workhorse when it comes to pairing up with grey chore pants and tough leather work boots, yet it also looks mighty fine when worn casually (think slim indigo jeans, a thermal henley and chukka boots to grab to-go brewery beers). Consider the Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt a grab-and-go-type of jacket, one you need to wear when on the trail or camping under the stars (or again, hanging out around your bonfire). And because it’s Filson, all the details are accounted for — the snap front buttons are easy to use even while wearing, say, Filson work gloves. Although the Filson Quilted Jac-Shirt is a bit pricier than your average work shirt, it’s absolutely worth it — it’s a new everyday style staple. If you end up picking it up, let me know on Twitter.

The Friday Read: A New Timex Watch, The American Giant Vault Collection & Everlane Jeans

Timex Allied Watch

A durable, casual and rugged watch to wear all fall.

First things first: I’d say it’s well and truly *time* to step into the weekend right now with anoher edition of The Friday Read, preferably with the rugged Timex Allied Watch (as seen above and as sold by UNCRATE) on your wrist. It’s one of the best men’s casual watches I’ve seen in some time, and one of the most affordable watches of the moment, for that matter (it retails for $125 at UNCRATE). The Timex Allied Watch has rugged good looks and easygoing style to pair with all your seasonal favorites — a few of which we’ll cover today, of course. It’s been a busy few weeks around here in terms of fall style, what with plenty of new products finding their way to my Brooklyn HQ (read: apartment), from the excellent Faherty Brand Legend Sweater Shirt to some new Mott and Bow denim (all as seen on my Instagram, of course).

I’m feeling more than ready for fall to pick up in earnest — how about you? I’ve definitely been busy on the writing front, covering the best weekender bags over at Maxim.com and writing about the best bourbons for National Bourbon Heritage Month for GearMoose, too. I’ve also been making sure to support my favorite craft beer breweries in Brooklyn when possible, including picking up some to-go beers at Gold Star Beer Counter, all the better to enjoy in my craft beer growler at home. Perhaps you’re in much the same boat? It’s tough to not be able to enjoy a brewery or beer bar in person, but I’m urging you (and reminding myself!) to stay safe and strong in the meantime. To get your weekend started off on the right foot, check out a few choice reads below.

One more note: Have you subscribed to my gear, music & beer newsletter The Style Guide In Brief? You get two free dispatches delivered right to your inbox every Tuesday and Saturday.

A seriously limited-edition American Giant hoodie to power your fall weekends.

  • Let’s get right down to it: This fall, you’re going to need a stylish hooded sweatshirt for casual weekends and outdoor adventures aplenty. You might as well go ahead and make it a limited-edition hoodie from the American Giant Vault Collection, for that matter. The Vault Collection is the latest sustainability initiative from the brand — they’ve built one of the best men’s hoodies out of old, unused fabric, inspired by the ingenuity needed during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Vault “opened up” this past Monday, and prior to that, American Giant had a waitlist of thousands wanting to get their hands on this sweatshirt. How cool is that!? Assuredly, all those fans can’t be wrong. Stay tuned for more from the Vault Collection this fall.
Everlane Uniform Collection

A perfect pair of black jeans for fall — right?

Luminox Land Collection

The toughest adventure watch your money can buy? Very nearly.

So, what’ll it be to start your weekend? Will you be checking out the American Giant Vault Collection and getting your hands on your new favorite hoodie? Perhaps shopping some slim black jeans from the the Everlane Uniform Collection is more your stride, or better yet on the accessories front, maybe the Luminox Atacama Adventurer is now on your fall style wish list (I know it’s on mine). As for me, I’ll be trying to narrow down my own personal style wish list. One last thing: If you could use some fall weekend style inspiration, you can’t go wrong with my guide on how to wear a waxed trucker jacket this season. It’s everything you need, and then some. Wherever your weekend adventures take you, stay safe, stay stylish and thanks for reading!

The Thursday Buy: FRYE’s Tyler Boots are Some of Fall’s Best Boots

FRYE Tyler Boots

Lace up some of the coolest, most rugged boots for men this fall.

That’s right, ladies and gentlemen. We’re back once again today with another pair of the best boots for men (a huge focus on the blog as of late) and with another pair of FRYE leather boots for your consideration and enjoyment. If you read any FRYE boots review, a few things are going to stand out. Namely, this heritage bootmaker doesn’t cut any corners, and that’s why you need a pair of these investment-level boots in your wardrobe. They also produce easily wearable, rugged-yet-dressy boots like the FRYE Tyler Boots with ease — quite a fair bit of ease, at that. What’s that mean for you? It means that it’s high time you invested in some of the best boots for men this season — it’s nearly October, after all.

The FRYE Tyler Boots, although pricey at $328 via FRYE, are going to deliver on multiple fronts when it comes to style, durability and quality, to say the least. Handcrafted, oiled suede gives these lace-up leather boots a bit of a rugged, rock n’roll edge — feel free to wear ’em with slim black jeans and, say, a black leather jacket atop your favorite T-shirt (even if you can’t exactly go to a rock show right now). The FRYE Tyler Boots are made with Goodyear welt construction, which means you can wear and wear them for years … then have ’em resoled with ease. And these rugged leather boots should also provide surprising comfort, whether worn with slim dark denim and a chambray shirt or a thermal henley and tan chinos — they feature a PORON foam footbed for a smooth ride. The  bottom line is this: It’s still the right time to pick up some of your new favorite boots, and you should certainly head over to FRYE to pick up the pair that’s right for you.

#OOTD: How to Dress for a Fall Road Trip Right Now

We’ve been talking for some time now on the blog about how to dress for early fall (and beyond), and now that we’ve officially crossed over into the season itself, let’s pivot ever so slightly. Let’s go beyond the confines of your home office and your back patio, and let’s talk about how to dress for a fall road trip. I’m not talking about hopping on a cross-country flight — I’m moreso talking about the kind of trip where you pack up a durable duffle bag, grab your most rugged denim jacket, bring along your craft beer growler … and then get in the car and go. Where to?  A cabin, the lake, the river, a quiet town upstate … any and all of the above, right? Right. What to bring with you?

Well, a stylish face mask, for starters. But beyond that, we’ll cover all your fall style essentials for a road trip today on the blog — rest assured of that. Comfort, durability and style are the key here, seeing as you might be going off-trail for a hike or spending plenty of time on your feet, hopping from brewery to brewery (patios and masks preferred). Given that approach, you’ll find the best pants for fall travel and some stylish sneaker boots in the mix, too. Of course, all the right layers are along for the ride, including a tough workwear shirt  and a rugged leather watch. These are picks suited for casual (masked) strolls around town, and with a bit of improvisation, you can get out the door for that orchard or winery tour (at least, that’s what I’d do). How about it? Is this #OOTD ready for fall? I sure hope you think so. Stay safe, gear up and let me know what you think of this ensemble on Twitter.

Versatile, rugged layers for hitting the road this fall.

  • The Jacket: Todd Snyder Japanese Stretch Selvedge Denim Jacket, $288 — Made from rich indigo Japanese cotton with plenty of stretch, this classic denim jacket is one of the best denim jackets around, and it’s ideal for falll layering given the built-in stretch.
  • The Shirt: Flint and Tinder Selvage Architects Shirt, $128 — Layer up your rugged denim jacket with a new Flint and Tinder shirt, cut like a classic Oxford shirt and yet featuring Japanese selvage fabric for tough durability in fall weather.
  • The Tee: Buck Mason Long-Sleeve Raglan Tee, $52 — Keep the fall layering rolling with one of the most comfortable long-sleeve tees around. Buck Mason gets it done.
  • The Pants: Western Rise AT Slim Pants in Sand, $128 — Cut in a classic five-pocket silhouette and featuring plenty of durability and stretch, these Western Rise pants are the best pants for fall travel, period.
  • The Sneaker Boots: HELM Cole Sneakers in Wheat, $240 — The brand that makes some of your favorite boots (as seen here) is now making some of the best men’s sneakers, cut to be the perfect hybrid between, well, sneakers and boots.
  • The Watch: Luminox Atacama Field Chronograph, $940 — If you want a rugged leather watch that you can wear on the road and then out to grab socially distanced craft beers, you want this durable field watch from Luminox, my friends.
  • The Hat: Huckberry Explorer’s Cap, $40 — A fittingly named hat for fall adventures, and certainly one of the best men’s ballcaps out there.
  • The Travel Bag: Halfday Garment Duffle, $95 — Looking for the best travel bag under $100? You’ve found it. This garment bag from Bespoke Post zips into a stylish duffle bag, and comes complete with tough hardware, a built-in shoe compartment and more.

If I had to guess, I’d wager that this #OOTD is going to carry you through fall more than stylishly and reliably, no doubt about it. If you’ve been wondering how to dress for fall, period, or how to dress for a fall road trip, start here. A rugged workwear shirt teams stylishly with your new favorite denim jacket, and of course, that combination layers up more than readily with one of the best long-sleeve T-shirts for fall, courtesy of our pals at Buck Mason. When it gets a bit too warm (as is known to happen with shifting winds and fall sunlight), ditch the denim jacket and stick with the long-sleeve tee and your Flint and Tinder shirt. It all works in harmony with the best pants for fall travel, a durable pair that’ll stand up to fall weather and long hours in the car. But of course, a pair of the best men’s sneakers takes the cake on the footwear front (make sure your HELM boots are packed in your bag, of course) — there’s nothing better than comfortable sneaker boots for the trail and the taproom, am I right?

It all comes together in precisely the right way on the accessories front when you consider the versatility of your durable field watch from Luminox, fit for all-day wear. To keep the sun off your face and shield your eyes from the wind ever so slightly, throw on the Huckberry Explorer’s Cap for anything and everything on your to-do list. Last but certainly not least, a versatile duffle bag is the perfect way to haul your weekend style essentials (and it’s easy to pack and easy to zip out into a hanging garment bag). Alright, folks. Who’s ready to hit the road? I’ll see you out there. To get the scoop on how I’m dressing for fall, head to my Instagram

Style Pick of the Week: Luminox Atacama Field Chronograph Watch

A perfectly rugged leather field watch to wear all fall.

Folks, quickly — look at your right or left wrist. Are you missing one of the best watches for men? Even if you’re wearing a watch (a great style move to start, to be sure), I’d bet that it’s not anywhere near as stylish, rugged or dependable as the Luminox Atacama Field Chronograph as shown above (no offense, though!). It’s an investment-level watch that, thanks to its rugged build and durable design, happens to be both one of the best leather watches and one of the best watches for fall. How does that work out?  A rugged watch that wears especially well in the fall months? Yes, you bet. Luminox has a sterling reputation making tactical and military-approved watches, and this leather field watch blends both hearty design specs and plenty of style points. Now, this particular watch retails for $940 via Luminox …  but it’s assuredly worth it. 

You see, the cooler weather of fall naturally calls for harder-wearing, tougher gear with plenty of texture and dependability for chilly fall weather, wind and rain. Think a waxed trucker jacket, slim selvedge denim, tough leather boots and of course, a reliable leather watch for men — one that’s got the design and toughness to pair up more than readily with each of those fall style essentials. Still with me? Right on.

SHOP: The Luminox Atacama Field Chronograph

A durable leather field watch that looks great with, well, just about anything.

The specs on this rugged leather field watch are, quite simply, very impressive. The 45mm stainless steel case design is beastly and made for fall and winter adventures off trail, and the screw down crown adds another touch of resistance to the elements. This Luminox watch has plenty going for it on the style front, too — the midnight blue sunray dial is eye-catching and visually appealing, and luminescent dial markings help light the way when conditions get tough out there.

Elsewhere, the Luminox Atacama Field Chronograph features three chronographs and alarm functionality, all the better to stay on time on the trail (and back home). It’s one of the coolest leather watches I’ve seen in some time, and design details like ivory contrast stitching and a handsome honey tan leather strap drive that point home nicely, too. You can rock this stylish leather watch with just about any gear you’d like, but for real fall excursions, my best bet would to pair the Luminox Atacama Field Chronograph with a rugged henley, a denim shirt, your favorite trucker jacket, hard-wearing chore pants and of course, leather lace-up boots. Just like that, you’ve figured out your new favorite fall ensemble — starring your favorite leather watch. Good luck out there this fall, folks.
