Best rugged fall gear for men

Shop The Style Guide

Welcome to The Shop by The Style Guide. Consider this a curated, expertly crafted selection of the best men’s style essentials for any season from your Brooklyn-based blog writer and editor (that’d be me, Beau!), updated semi-regularly. It’s a quicker way to shop classic brands through the site without diving into, well, all of my writing. That being said, many of these men’s gear picks make appearances elsewhere on the site (like right here!). You’ll see a curated, mostly rotating selection of the best menswear essentials across all categories (think the best Oxford shirt, the best sneakers, the coolest leather jacket, and so on) coming from brands you know — and some you don’t.

In the spirit of the start of spring and work-from-home gear, I’m also telling you about everything from men’s grooming to classic whiskey to enjoy at home. It’s all up for the taking, folks. Heck, these could become building blocks of your wardrobe (and your bar cart). Enjoy.
