The Sunday Sale: Pre-Fund and Save on the Best Men’s Leather Jacket at Taylor Stitch

I don’t know about you, but I tend to run hot in the summer months. It’s for precisely that reason that it might seem a tad bit unusual to be talking about one of the best leather jackets for men, but rest assured that we’re doing so with good reason in today’s Sunday Sale. Any time Taylor Stitch pulls back the curtain on the ever-so-cool Taylor Stitch Workshop, it’s absolutely worth seeing what’s in store. And in the case of today’s featured menswear deal, it’s the Taylor Stitch Bomber Jacket in Whiskey Suede, one of the best men’s leather jackets out there. As luck would have it, it’s also on sale for 20 percent off right now, as great a deal as you’re apt to find on one of the best leather jackets for men. That discount takes the price down to $638 from $798, not a bad deal in the slightest.

Like all Taylor Stitch outerwear, it’s got every mark of quality you’d expect, including the finest materials on the market, the most durable construction and just a touch of timeless appeal and classic quality. Again, this makes the Taylor Stitch Bomber Jacket in Whiskey Suede one of the coolest leather jackets you can buy right now, even if it might not seem a wise choice at first glance. But you’re in luck if you start pre-funding it right now (it’s on the market for about three more weeks): The Taylor Stitch Bomber Jacket in Whiskey Suede won’t actually hit your doorstep until late October, right around the time you’re going to want to layer up with one of the best men’s bomber jackets. It’s hard to pass up that offer, right? No doubt about it.

SHOP: The Taylor Stitch Bomber Jacket in Whiskey Suede

Beyond the fact that it takes a classic style and upgrades it in a big way, the Taylor Stitch Bomber Jacket in Whiskey Suede is exceptional in plenty of other ways. Super-soft 3oz. calf suede should prove refined yet durable, and the texture and color is absolutely perfect for fall. Cotton twill lining through the body gives this stylish leather jacket a bit of added warmth and structure without weighing you down. That blend means it’s an excellent jacket to layer atop everything from a Taylor Stitch Oxford shirt to a Taylor Stitch henley on blustery fall days (and those days are coming back, trust me!).

To make things even better and more stylish, the Taylor Stitch Bomber Jacket in Whiskey Suede features contrasting ribbing at the collar and cuffs, plus a handy interior chest pocket (Taylor Stitch says this pocket is ideal for storing your cell phone, and it’s hard not to argue with that utility). The real icing on the cake is the fact that you can get this stellar, refined and versatile jacket on sale for 20 percent off right now. It’s a perfect jacket for fall weekend getaways or as a blazer substitute at the office, but really, with a jacket this well-made and classic-yet-modern, you can wear it just about anywhere.

Style Pick of the Week: Buck Mason Maverick Slim Jeans-The Best Men’s Jeans for Summer

Zoomed product image

We’ve talked a lot on here about the best brands for men’s denim, including favorites like Mott and Bow, and it’s always worth mentioning another brand that makes some of the best men’s jeans: That’d be Buck Mason, of course. If you keep up with the blog and if you’ve been shopping around for a pair of lightweight, durable, dependable and summer-ready jeans, then you’re in luck today. The Buck Mason Maverick Slim Jeans are everything you could hope for in a pair of summer denim, and then some. As a guy who wears denim more often than not, even in the summer heat, I’m always looking for men’s stretch jeans that offer up comfort and cushioning without overdoing it. That’s where Buck Mason’s Maverick Jeans enter the equation.

Satchel and Page

Built with 1 percent stretch for just enough mobility, it’s the Natural Wash Maverick Jeans that have caught my eye this season in particular. Fear not, though: This isn’t a pair of blindingly bright white jeans. These jeans have a natural wash finish, unlike cotton denim that’s been dyed with rich indigo. So, they’re more of an “off-white” or beige than anything, and that’s great news indeed if you’ve been meaning to switch up your denim rotation ever so slightly. Plus, they’re made with Buck Mason‘s guarantee of quality and durability, and that’s just the start of what makes these some of the best men’s jeans for summer.

SHOP: The Buck Mason Maverick Slim Jeans

Believe it or not, the Buck Mason Maverick Slim Jeans are reasonably priced for the quality and versatility you’re getting (they’ll run you $145 at Buck Mason), and the specs are certainly on-point as far as the best men’s denim for summer is concerned. Again, the 13oz. denim weight isn’t overly heavy nor overly flimsy, and touches like nickel hardware and a button fly amp up both the hard-wearing construction and classic appeal of the Buck Mason Maverick Slim Jeans. The fit also strikes a happy medium between modern and timeless. It’s a slim-straight fit, neither too skinny nor too relaxed, with a mid-rise finish and a tapered cut from the knee down.

Satchel and Page

All of these touches come together seamlessly to make what’s perhaps your new favorite pair of denim to wear with, well, anything. The Natural Wash finish means these slim men’s jeans pair up seamlessly with one of the best T-shirts from Buck Mason, not to mention a Buck Mason polo or a rugged Buck Mason denim shirt. And last but not least, you can certainly rock the Buck Mason Maverick Slim Jeans with a classic summer blazer from Buck Mason when the occasion calls for something a bit more polished. When you want jeans that work 24/7, all summer long, in plenty of style situations, you want a pair of the best men’s jeans for summer from Buck Mason.

The Thursday Buy: You Need the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants in Your Daily Wardrobe

Folks, when the going gets tough, when it feels to hot to wear pants, when you feel like your summer wardrobe is on the fritz, well, that’s when you need a pair of the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants. I’d be willing to bet that if you read this site on the regular, you don’t need me to sing the praises of Flint and Tinder, the excellent in-house brand dreamed up by the fine folks at San Francisco-based Huckberry. They’ve long been one of my favorite retailers, and indeed, one of the best places to buy menswear online, and that only becomes more clear by the day. So, that’s a great place to start if you’re thinking about buying the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants — and yes, I mean right now, as hot as it might be. That’s because the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants aren’t your average pair of chinos. They’re certainly part of any well-regarded list of the best shopping picks at Huckberry, but it goes beyond that.

We’ve certainly talked in the past about what makes these some of my favorite pants, but consider this a refresher – and again, even in the summer heat. The remarkable Flint and Tinder 365 Pants are a Huckberry best-seller for good reason, starting with the fact that they’re built as tough as jeans, with the styling potential of chinos. It’s the five-pocket design and yet polished build that stands apart from the pack. That versatility makes them easily wearable in situations where it’s too casual for jeans, but you still want to feel comfortable (and look great). Heck, go ahead and buy two pairs for $175 then thank me later.

SHOP: The Flint and Tinder 365 Pants

Particularly in the summer months, I’m a huge fan of the Salt colorway, which sits nicely at the intersection of off-white and bright white (which might be a bit too fashion-forward based on the situation. Beyond that nice and summer-ready option, they come in a dozen colors, each as wearable as the next with other Flint and Tinder essentials. You’ve also got your pick between Slim, Straight and Tapered fits. I’ve tried out both the Slim and Straight fits, and even the Straight fit is nicely cut, and not overly baggy.

The 8oz. cotton blend fabric, with just a hint of stretch, is also breezy enough for summer, but dependable enough for fall and winter. That makes them a true pair of four-season men’s pants, a rarity for under $100. Remember though, you can buy two pairs for $175 and save a bit of extra cash. Plus, the versatile design pairs well with everything from a Flint and Tinder T-shirt (right now) to a chambray shirt layered over your favorite henley (in the fall and winter). If you haven’t yet tried out the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants, consider this the perfect time to take the plunge. You’ll stay polished and stylish, even in the heat — I guarantee it. If you’ve tried out some of these pants, let me know in the comments. Stay stylish!

See Now, Buy Now: The Taylor Stitch University Stripe Oxford is a New Essential

As far as the best men’s shirts are concerned, Taylor Stitch nearly has the market cornered, and it’s been that way for a good while now. The San Francisco-based brand, which you can also find my Shop By The Style Guide, has built a fervent following through attention to detail, solid construction, great fits and constant innovation. The latest result of the brand’s chase to build one of the best shirts for men? The Taylor Stitch Jack Oxford Shirt in Navy University Stripe. It’s one part preppy, one part classic and plenty wearable and stylish any way you slice it.

The brand has got a knack for doing plenty of different things the right way, be it the best adventure shorts or an investment-level jacket, and it certainly helps that they’ve long been making one of the most classic men’s shirts to pair with style staples new and old. The Jack Shirt from Taylor Stitch is very easily the stuff of legend, and the kind of shirt you build a brand around (Taylor Stitch launched, after all, with a focus on making the perfect men’s shirt). They’ve definitely cleared that high bar with the Taylor Stitch Jack Oxford Shirt in Navy University Stripe, and it’s just the latest, coolest pattern to get the “Jack” treatment, if you will.

SHOP: The Taylor Stitch Jack Oxford Shirt in Navy University Stripe

The Jack Oxford Shirt checks off a few critical boxes as far as what you need in your Oxford shirt. It’s designed to be worn tucked in or untucked, making it ideal for business casual situations (tucked in, paired with tan chinos) or worn untucked with an expertly crafted pair of Taylor Stitch denim. Crucially, the Jack Shirt from Taylor Stitch is built from a substantial but not overly heavy 6oz. 100 percent organic cotton, giving you some sustainability plus style. The Jack buttondown collar, another staple of this design from Taylor Stitch, is nicely sized and has a bit of a roll to it, like classic Oxford shirts.

Beyond that, the navy university stripes call to mind that classic all-American style of decades gone by, and yet, it’s a shirt that looks as fresh as anything out there today. The buttondown collar is a way to bring your suit down a notch (I’m thinking of a classic patch pocket khaki cotton suit, worn with a knit tie to an outdoor summer wedding). However you choose to rock it, the Jack Shirt from Taylor Stitch, especially in a preppy stripe pattern with natural buttons, is a suitably stylish way to cap off your next summer #OOTD. In fact, as far as shirts that make or break an outfit go, this one definitely helps take your look from good to great.

Style Pick of the Week: Huckberry Cruisers Sunglasses – Most Affordable Men’s Sunglasses

My friends, the headline says it all as to why we’re here today for another Style Pick of the Week. We’re in the midst of a brutally hot summer that shows no signs of letting up, so why not treat yourself to some of the best sunglasses for men, and a highly affordable pair, at that? A guy’s got to keep his vision on-point in the heat, after all. Thankfully for you and me both, the Huckberry Cruisers Sunglasses really live up to the hype as far as affordable sunglasses are concerned. They strike that tricky balance between easy to buy (the Huckberry Cruisers retail for $45 at the most) and easy to wear (they manage to be both highly durable and highly stylish).

Satchel and Page

In short, they’re exactly what you might expect, in the best way possible, as far as sunglasses from Huckberry are concerned. It’s as if the lauded San Francisco retailer, long one of my favorite brands, has managed to put a bit of everything great about the company into the Huckberry Cruisers. For stylish guys everywhere, and for guys who want to shield their eyes from the sun without spending a ton, this is great news. These shades are just the latest in a stylish run of Huckberry-branded gear that also includes hats and luggage, and again, it helps that these are the most affordable sunglasses on the market. Scroll on to find out more, folks.

The Huckberry Cruisers Sunglasses manage to do the impossible as far as the best men’s sunglasses are concerned. They blend top-notch functionality, including polarized, scratch-resistant lenses and durable frames, with the kind of cool, easygoing style you need for summer. The frames are lightweight and surprisingly sporty, yet the oval lens shape and notched nose bridge calls to mind classic Persol sunglasses. It’s design touches like these that give the Huckberry Cruisers Sunglasses a leg up on the competition. This classic and crisp design means you can also rock these Huckberry sunglasses with everything from a tailored suit to a polo or T-shirt and slim chino shorts.

And yet, the good folks at Huckberry have you covered: Take your pick between six frame and lens combinations, including the old-school, yet modern, Tortoise blend shown above, or the instantly iconic Gloss Cola Huckberry Cruisers. No matter the style you pick up (and you should certainly pick up at least one), the Huckberry Cruisers Sunglasses are the ultimate in terms of style and accessibility on the eyewear market. The most affordable sunglasses for the rest of summer can be yours today.

The Friday Read: The Huckberry Annual Summer Sale, A New Getaway Bag & The Best Hazy IPAs

It might just feel like another sweltering summer weekend, but believe me when I say it’s not just another sweltering summer weekend. How so? Well, the Huckberry Annual Summer Sale is taking place, and like all things to come out of the hallowed digital halls of the famed retailer, it’s packed with some of the best gear and the best prices you’re going to find anywhere. Huckberry boasts that the Huckberry Annual Summer Sale gives you thousands of deals at up to 35 percent off, which is truly astounding when you consider the versatility and range you’re getting. It nearly goes without saying, but this is one of the best menswear sales of the moment, and not to be missed. It also happens to be the perfect way to start a breezy and laidback weekend, so be sure to kick back and start adding a few items to your cart.

I’ll certainly be coveting a few pieces from that sale (OK, more than a few) as I stay busy and try to stay cool with various writing pursuits. If you haven’t already subscribed to my music and menswear newsletter, The Style Guide In Brief, I’d hop on over and do that in advance of tomorrow’s Saturday dispatch (if you follow me on my music Twitter account, you know it’s absolutely one of my passions). I’ll also be quite busy researching and planning stories for the likes of Maxim, AskMen and Fatherly, so keep an eye out for those bylines from yours truly, too. Of course, it’s not a summer weekend without a little fun in the sun, so I plan to down a cold beer or two at a favorite brewery, like Threes Brewing. What’s on your weekend to-do list? I can think of at least a few items, starting with the rest of my picks for today’s Friday Read. Cheers to summer, my friends — stay cool!

The Easy Goer 
  • I mentioned earlier that I’d be staying busy writing for Maxim and other sites, and I’ve certainly done that heading into this weekend. Now, if you read the blog, you know that Mack Weldon makes some of the best men’s basics and plenty more. But what if I told you they were going a step further in that approach and really creating an entire system of easy-to-wear, mix-and-match menswear staples? I talked in last week’s Friday Read about the Mack Weldon Daily Wear System, but I got to take another dive into it this week for Maxim. Give it a read and start shopping, folks.
Herschel Supply x Birdwell Promo
  • How’s this for some stellar everyday carry gear for your weekend? I’m talking, of course, about the new collaboration between Herschel Supply Co. and Birdwell Beach Britches, a perfect blend of old-school beach gear like totes and T-shirts, done up in classic colors and made from the very fabric that Birdwell popularized in its first board shorts in the 1960s. You’ve got to see it to believe it, so head over again to Maxim to gear up for that next coastal vacation.
  • Here’s one for all the craft beer lovers reading my blog (and a word to the wise: I talk about craft beer in my twice-weekly newsletter, too!). Beyond just my newsletter, I wrote for Fatherly — a terrific lifestyle site for parents and guys of all ages — about the best hazy IPAs for summer. Trust me, these belong in your beer fridge, and I think you’ll find something to enjoy among my list of eight favorites. Cheers!

How’s this for a quick summer closer to your weekend guide? Hopefully, you’re paying more attention these days to how and where your stylish sneakers are made. If that sounds like you as a consumer, you’d do well to read my guide to the SeaVees Seachange Sneakers, some of the most sustainable sneakers on the market. They’re the right pair to wear when you want a set of knockaround kicks that look great, can take a beating and are made with eco-conscious materials in mind. With that being said, it’s time to launch in the weekend. Thanks for reading!
