Best flannel shirt for men.

If you know where to look, opportunities abound to save on the best winter menswear — if you know where to look, that is. That’s why we’re here with today’s Sunday Sale, of course: To point you in the direction of companies like Faherty Brand, a longtime favorite of mine with a penchant for selling everything from one of the best winter jackets to the stylish flannel shirt you see above.

Best winter flannel shirt for men.

The shirt in question, of course, is the fan favorite Faherty Legend Sweater Shirt, a rugged yet ultra-soft men’s shirt for winter that wears like an overshirt or a standalone flannel shirt, any way you slice it. And the deal in question? In select colors and patterns (nine of them, to be exact), the Faherty Legend Sweater Shirt is more than 40 percent off.

That’s one heck of a deal for a casually rugged shirt you can wear virtually every day, be it through more casual days at the office or winter weekend brewery outings or lounge-ready days at home. It’s not all that often that the Faherty Legend Sweater Shirt goes on sale with such wide variety available, so hop on this deal while it’s still around. I’ll leave you to it, my friends.

Style Pick of the Week: Flint and Tinder Jackson Flannel Shirt – Winter’s Best Flannel Shirt

Best winter flannel shirt for men.

In any menswear rotation, there are certain staples you can never get enough of — at least, that’s true when I look in my own closet and select one of my favorite flannel shirts to wear seemingly on the daily for the cold winter months. And if you feel the same way, then consider today’s Style Pick an airtight recommendation of sorts.

The Flint and Tinder Jackson Flannel Shirt is another stone-cold seasonal style favorite from the good folks at Huckberry. Long story short: If you don’t yet have the Flint and Tinder Jackson Flannel Shirt in your winter arsenal, it’s time to remedy that today. We’ve talked in the past on this blog about the utility of one of the best flannel shirts for men, and much of the same still holds true this season, at least as far as the Flint and Tinder Jackson Flannel Shirt is concerned.

Best men's flannel shirt to buy now.

It’s helpful that right now, the Flint and Tinder Jackson Flannel Shirt is on sale for under $100 in an array of colors and patterns that practically scream “perfect winter style,” but the utility of this rugged flannel shirt goes so much deeper than price (as is the case with plenty of other Huckberry menswear essentials, of course). The Flint and Tinder Jackson Flannel Shirt is made from 100 percent cotton flannel in a 6oz. weight, which should prove manageable to layer atop one of your favorite henleys or style on its own beneath a Flint and Tinder waxed jacket.

To round things out quite nicely, the Flint and Tinder Jackson Flannel Shirt is available in plenty of sizes and in nearly every colorway, as sure a sign as any that this shirt is quickly becoming a new Huckberry classic. The patch chest pocket, while a small design detail, also gives this a bit of a shirt jacket feel

To me, that means you can utilize it for your EDC gear while wearing the Flint and Tinder Jackson Flannel Shirt unbuttoned atop a merino T-shirt for cozy, at-home winter weekend style. When a deal this exciting comes along for a wardrobe standard, act quickly to score one of the best flannel shirts for men — the Flint and Tinder Jackson Flannel Shirt, of course.

The Friday Read: A Journey Across the Pond to… Morocco

In the course of my freelance writing pursuits (as you well know if you follow me on Instagram!), I’m presented with the opportunity to do some pretty remarkable things, be it writing about luxury watches, sampling opulent bourbon or traveling to London to try the world’s best Scotch. Of course, this blog and my other writing pursuits keep me plenty busy and present opportunities all their own, but none quite like the journey I’ve undertaken this week.

Over these past few days, I’ve had the lifetime chance to hop on a plane and hop across the pond — not to Europe, but to the famed city of Tangier, Morocco, where I’ve hunkered down for the week at the new Fairmont Tazi Palace Tangier. A review will follow on Maxim.com, but again, my Instagram has an inside look at the stunning accommodations!

Talk about an opportunity for a “work trip” not to be passed up, particularly as a chance to start the new year and escape the cold grey of New York City. Myself and my fellow journalists have explored the city on foot, sipped on cocktails throughout the resort, and generally enjoyed (an understatement!) this iconic destination. I won’t spoil it all, but it’s been stunning.

While I don’t write travel reviews on the daily, I’m becoming more acquainted with jetting from one destination to the next, honing my writing skills and eye for detail along the way (a never-ending quest!). And to get the chance to do that in such a historic city, and in such a luxurious locale, is nothing short of remarkable, frankly. Again, you can look for a full review in the days ahead at Maxim.com, but for now, I think I’ll take in the sights and sounds of the city one last time before heading home. As always: Thanks for reading and for your support!

The Thursday Buy: Switch Up Your Winter Style with Buck Mason’s Rugby Polo

Best long-sleeve polos for men

Dressing well in winter can sometimes feel like a bit of a taxing chore at times: It’s cold, there’s only so much you can do to layer up while still breathing easy, and it can get just a bit repetitive. But like clockwork, that’s where Buck Mason enters the fray, taking classic winter style essentials and upending them ever so slightly, whether it’s a rugged shawl jacket or an even cozier shawl cardigan for men. The brand isn’t resting on its laurels though, this time taking the traditional polo and turning it into a new winter must-have via the Buck Mason Field-Spec Rugby Polo.

Shop New Arrivals from Billy Reid

Buck Mason shirts — from one-pocket Oxford shirts to toasty flannel pieces — are already a tried-and-true closet staple (at least for this Brooklyn writer), and the Buck Mason Field-Spec Rugby Polo is an even cooler departure from the norm. Rugby shirts have been a prep style staple for years, and companies like Rowing Blazers have brought them back into the fold.

So it goes with the Buck Mason Field-Spec Rugby Polo, which subverts the warm-weather nature of the polo and turns it into a distinctive layer you can now wear to the office or to a polished winter gathering.

The Buck Mason Field-Spec Rugby Polo, available in colors like crisp blue Jet, classic Black and sharp White, hits the right notes for a preppy staple made modern. The classic fit should prove flattering on several body types, while the three-button placket on the Buck Mason Field-Spec Rugby Polo frames the face nicely. And lest you should think the Buck Mason Field-Spec Rugby Polo will prove too lightweight, it’s made from cotton jersey fabric in the same vein as thick rugby polo cloth.

When it’s especially chilly, consider the Buck Mason Field-Spec Rugby Polo as your base layer, topped off by, say, a Buck Mason sweater and a trusty Buck Mason waxed coat. Note that the Buck Mason Field-Spec Rugby Polo has been garment-washed for added texture and visual interest, and it’s a ready substitute in place of an Oxford shirt beneath a blazer.

The split hem falls in line with classic polo design details, and the price on the Buck Mason Field-Spec Rugby Polo ($88) is similar to other stylish Buck Mason shirts. However, the Buck Mason Field-Spec Rugby Polo shakes up the design just enough to make it a fun change of pace this winter, all for under $100. Sounds like a can’t-miss menswear purchase in the new year.

See Now, Buy Now: The Filson Uplander Boots are the Most Rugged Leather Boots to Shop This Winter

Best men's leather boots for winter

By now, you’ve likely realized this winter that the right gear (starting from the ground up) can make or break a day spent in the great outdoors or around town. Lace up the wrong winter boots and you’ll realize it right away, as I like to say. On the other hand, lace up some of the best winter boots for men, and navigating slippery streets might start to even seem… dare I say it… somewhat easy? Or easier than most days, particularly if the Filson Uplander Boots are the rugged leather boots you’ve got on your feet.

Naturally, Filson has a long-running penchant for delivering overbuilt, seriously cool gear for men that works and works — and works, no matter the weather. Of course, Filson wool outerwear and Filson shirt jackets are especially impressive, but the Filson Uplander Boots are worth considering (and investing in), as well.

For starters, note the taller 10-inch shaft height, ideal for winter coverage, and pay special attention to the tongue, which is gusseted with the brand’s famed Tin Cloth fabric for protection against moisture.

Best winter boots for men.

The Filson Uplander Boots are well-built in plenty of different areas big and small, for good measure. The heavyweight full-grain leather is oil-tanned for both supple performance and long-lasting durability, while the seams on the Filson Uplander Boots have been sealed for weather-ready protection. The sole is done up with a Goodyear welt for years of wear (like any great Filson product), and the Filson Uplander Boots are also outfitted with a sturdy rubber lug sole.

Taken altogether, the Filson Uplander Boots perfectly fuse heirloom style and modern performance in a way that looks positively great from day to night. The rich brown leather will fade and break in even further over time, making the Filson Uplander Boots a useful style move with tan chinos (perhaps flannel-lined?) or inky blue Filson selvedge denim.

And yes, the Filson Uplander Boots boast a price tag of nearly $400, but if you’ve tried any gear from Filson lately, you know they’re certainly worth the investment.

The Tuesday Steal: Save 25 Percent on this Stylish Reversible Overshirt from Bespoke Post

Best overshirt for men.

The idea of getting “two for the price of one” is a bit of an elusive deal these days, is it not? Especially in the menswear world, and even as you shop one of the best online shops for men — that’d be New York City’s own Bespoke Post, which always seems to stock and sell an array of the coolest gear for guys. Sure, that includes neat finds like handy pocket knives and portable fireplaces, but more importantly, it includes some of the best winter menswear essentials — specifically, like the Line of Trade Third Shift Reversible Overshirt seen above.

HELM Boots- $50 Off Your First Purchase

You’ll find it, of course, in the ever-shifting Bespoke Post Sale section, which offers up everything from home goods to outdoor gear and rugged menswear (and yes, they also sell on-sale Taylor Stitch shirts, too). The Line of Trade in-house brand at Bespoke Post is a thing of beauty, focused on the right balance between rugged and crisp classics for guys — again, go back to the Line of Trade Third Shift Reversible Overshirt, which is now 25 percent off for a limited time.

Best reversible overshirt for men.

One side of the Line of Trade Third Shift Reversible Overshirt is a vivid copper-colored cotton ripstop, all the better for cold-weather pursuits, while the deep Midnight side of the Line of Trade Third Shift Reversible Overshirt is a sueded, quilted polyester for insulation, topped off with a light water-repellent treatment. While the Line of Trade Third Shift Reversible Overshirt won’t replace your trusty winter parka, think of it like a handy, seriously cool travel jacket or warm layer for active pursuits like park strolls or quick winter outings.

HELM Boots- $50 Off Your First Purchase

Again, the Line of Trade Third Shift Reversible Overshirt is easy to throw on at a moment’s notice, thanks to the easy-on, easy-off snap metal buttons — this stylish overshirt just about does it all, and through the Bespoke Post Sale section, it’s 25 percent off right now. Start shopping and layering accordingly, my friends.

See Now, Buy Now: Get the All-Weather Overland Boots from Huckberry for Rugged Performance This Winter

Best winter boots for men.

If reliable performance is high on your radar this winter — and it very well should be — then you should shop a retailer you trust, one of the best online menswear stores for guys. Let’s get a bit more specific, though: The best winter boots are a downright essential (surely, you don’t need me to tell you that!), and Huckberry has a winning pair of the best boots for men on its hands (and eventually on your feet) right now.

The boots in question are the All-Weather Overland Boots, a revamped and overbuilt edition of the already wildly popular and incredibly effective Huckberry All-Weather Duck Boots. Crucially, the All-Weather Overland Boots share much of that same rugged, performance-minded DNA, with a few added touches that take them from simply good to some of the best winter boots for men. Let’s step in a touch further, shall we?

Best men's winter boots.

Helpfully, the All-Weather Overland Boots feature the same specs from the ground up, like a shock-absorbing midsole and a cushioned insole for nice rebound and movement over treacherous, snowy terrain. The same Vibram XS Trek outsole is also in the mix, delivering extreme traction akin to your favorite boots (yet with a more lightweight, hybrid design).

The All-Weather Overland Boots are, of course, 100 percent waterproof, and this particular version of some of the best men’s snow boots also boasts touches more commonly found on hiking boots, like CORDURA canvas panels. The All-Weather Overland Boots also boast D-ring speed lacing (again another hiking boot design detail!), plus a padded interior collar finished with suede on the outside.

Two stylish colorways are available, but the very best part might be the fact that the All-Weather Overland Boots retail for under $170. Looks like your new favorite winter boots are well within reach, yes?

Best winter menswear from Todd Snyder.

My friends, the above headline says it all, but consider this a helpful refresher as we close out the weekend today. The Todd Snyder Winter Sale is still going on, with deals that really are better than ever. Of course, we talked about one of the best winter menswear deals on the blog this past Friday, but again, deals this outstanding are tough to pass up (and certainly worth a reminder in their own right).

Luckily, some of those very pieces are up for grabs right now at as much as 60 percent off. That’s right: Use the code WINTER30 to get as much as 60 percent off at one of the country’s best menswear designers.

As always with any sale from Todd Snyder, these discounts won’t last forever, so make haste — I’ll leave you to it. Happy shopping, my friends!

Style Pick of the Week: Billy Reid Waxed Trucker Jacket – Winter’s Most Rugged Jacket

Best men's trucker jacket.

It’s hard not to love when one of your favorite brands makes a slightly unexpected style swerve, delivering something entirely new and seriously cool in the process. Take Billy Reid, for instance. The Alabama-based brand and personal favorite has a knack for making some of the most refined menswear on the market, whether it be the timeless Billy Reid Bond Peacoat or some of the best shirts for men on the daily.

Milled in Scotland for a lifetime of wear.

But what about when Billy Reid wants to switch things up a bit and go more rugged than refined? That’s what we have here with the simply stellar. well-crafted and impossibly cool Billy Reid Waxed Trucker Jacket. It’s part of a host of Billy Reid’s New Arrivals for winter, and it’s here not a moment too soon if you want to shake up your seasonal layering rotation.

Best men's waxed trucker jacket

Available in both Tan and Grey, the Billy Reid Waxed Trucker Jacket checks all the right boxes if it’s standout, hard-wearing design you want from your next winter jacket purchase. Sure, it’s not quite as blizzard-ready as one of the best men’s parkas, but for laidback seasonal style with a sense of expert cool, the Billy Reid Waxed Trucker Jacket goes the distance.

Best trucker jacket for men.

What really makes the Billy Reid Waxed Trucker Jacket so essential? Waxed cotton from famed fabric makers Halley Stevensons gives this jacket truly rugged appeal, while custom brass hardware adds a touch of handsome contrast on the front placket and chest front-button pockets.

Satchel and Page

The Billy Reid Waxed Trucker Jacket is also outfitted with touches unique to Billy Reid, like the designer’s signature ribbon stripe detailing, and the sleeves of this seriously cool trucker jacket are lined with cotton and polyester for an easy-on, easy-off fit. And to be sure, the Billy Reid Waxed Trucker Jacket is indeed pricier than other waxed trucker jackets on the market (including the fan favorite Flint and Tinder Trucker Jacket), but if you want to give a new style a shot this season, it’s hard to go wrong with Billy Reid.

Best candles for men.

Of course, there will be strong coffee and some of my favorite tunes to help me along, and I’ll be burning my favorite Huron candle (as seen above!) for good measure.

To keep up with my weekend pursuits — and with a very exciting trip coming up next week — be sure to give me a follow on my Instagram. Cheers and let’s get into the rest of the Friday Read!

Huckberry x Blundstone boots.
  • It’s been talked about on the blog over these past few weeks, but I’d urge you to strike while the iron’s hot: The Filson Winter Sale just served up some new Filson discounts, and those deals are available until January 17th. If I were you, I’d move quickly to shop and save on rugged winter gear from the lauded Pacific Northwest heritage outfitter.
  • I’ll leave you with one more recommendation this weekend. If it’s durable winter style you seek, then it’s the on-trend yet classic Flint and Tinder Rancher Jacket you need in your wardrobe. It nails that perfect balance of Yellowstone-esque, dependable style and should stand up to fierce winter weather. For good measure, I wrote about it on the blog this week!

That’s going to close the curtain on today’s Friday Read. I hope you certainly find something worth reading about and shopping this weekend, be it the Filson Winter Sale or the outstanding Todd Snyder Winter Sale — both are assuredly worth your time and hard-earned cash. Cheers, my friends!
