Style Pick of the Week: Billy Reid Corduroy 5-Pocket Pants

Take a chance on these corduroy pants — you won’t regret it.

Getting great fall style from a classic brand like Billy Reid is sometimes, well, ridiculously easy. Take the subtly stylish, exceptionally well-crafted Billy Reid Corduroy 5-Pocket Pants, for starters. Cut like your favorite pair of jeans in a tailored silhouette, the  Billy Reid Corduroy 5-Pocket Pants are nearly perfect for fall and winter — these aren’t your father’s corduroy pants, that much is true. No sir, these are an all-American pair of pants that works at the office or at the bar with plenty of men’s style essentials (like a crisp white Oxford and classic suede chukka boots, to start). Skeptical about corduroy trousers? Don’t be. The key here with the Billy Reid Corduroy 5-Pocket Pants comes with the classic construction and quality fit. The small-wale corduroy has a fine texture and what the brand calls a soft feel — your average pair of scratchy, stiff corduory pants, these are not. The Rubber color is also entirely unique and quite pleasing for fall and winter. The Billy Reid Corduroy 5-Pocket Pants will team up nicely with similarly rich men’s style essentials for fall, thanks to that cool color — it’ll look just great with a shawl collar cardigan and perhaps a classic chambray shirt, too (don’t forget your stylish brown leather boots).

Durable construction and excellent quality overall, yes?

Small design touches separate these corduroy pants from the pack, too. We’re talking antique brass hardware and a neat embossed leather back patch, for starters. The bound waistband on the Billy Reid Corduroy 5-Pocket Pants provides some solid construction, too. In short: These are a pair of corduroy pants that won’t quit, and they won’t give out on you after a few wears. Pima cotton makes ’em special, too — you just don’t find many pairs of corduroy pants like that these days. And again, the fact that the Billy Reid Corduroy 5-Pocket Pants wear just like jeans makes them quite handy and useful when it comes to fall style. They’re even able to team up with a rugged henley and moc toe boots — throw on a rugged denim trucker jacket, and you’ve got a go-anywhere combo for just about anything you need to take on this fall. That’s all there is to it, in my mind. What say you? Will you be checking out the Billy Reid Corduroy 5-Pocket Pants? It’s hard not to love them, in my mind.

See Now, Buy Now: The Vetra Chore Coat is A Perfectly Rugged Fall Layer

Vetra Chore Coat
Just the right combination of looks, rugged functionality and seasonal style.

One look at the Vetra Chore Coat tells you all you need to know, in my mind. That is to say, it’s a rugged, tough jacket that’s made for fall and winter layering. And it’s certainly among a host of fall style essentials you need in your wardrobe (and on your person) this season. Is it the perfect fall jacket? Well, that’s high praise … but when it comes to casual, versatile, then … yep, the Vetra Chore Coat just might fit the bill. Available as ever via our pals at Huckberry, it’s the sort of rugged fall jacket that embodies what the site stands for, in every possible way. Again, that’s high praise, but the Vetra Chore Coat blends functionality with an easy-to-layer silhouette and timeless style. Crafted from a heavy-duty, plain-weave cotton canvas in a highly versatile shade of Navy (although the same design is available in two different fabrics and colors), the made-in-France Vetra Chore Coat is the type of grab-and-go jacket that should assuredly be the centerpiece of your next fall weekend #OOTD.

SHOP: The Vetra Chore Coat via Huckberry

Yes indeed, the Vetra Chore Coat is one-of-a-kind, done up in the type of classic workwear style that would sit very well with a rugged long-sleeve henley and tough chore pants. Two oversized front pockets and one chest pocket provide room for your everyday carry essentials, while the five front buttons certainly aren’t in any danger of falling off — this jacket is tough and sturdy as heck. That means it’ll layer up quite nicely with a classic crewneck sweater and tan chinos for a bit of high-low, essential weekend style. It’s also a neat way to switch things up from your typical blazer — yes, that’s right … I’m recommending you wear the Vetra Chore Coat over a slim Oxford shirt and a knit tie at the office. Is that entirely unique combo? Yessir. Is it going to look great? Absolutely. Try it out and see for yourself.

#OOTD: How to Wear a Denim Shirt for Fall and Winter

Alright, I’ll come right out and say it — you need a stylish denim shirt in your fall and winter wardrobe, and you need one now. The denim shirt seen here is the type of smart, casual, versatile shirting option that every guy (including you!) can use, in any season — but especially when it gets cold. And what’s more, the rugged denim shirt featured in this #OOTD from Billy Reid is the sort of shirt that can be worn plenty of ways this fall and winter (not to mention spring and summer). Mind you, it’s not just any casual shirt we’re talking today — it’s none other than the Billy Reid Denim Shirt, a seriously cool, made-in-America style staple. With unique texture and a bright blue color, this particular denim shirt is one that teams readily with the picks you see below (including a rugged henley) just as easily as it teams with more dressed-up style staples, like a charcoal herringbone blazer. The denim shirt is, simply put, the right way to add edge to casual outfits, and the right way to inject a bit of cool into tailored looks.  As I’ve mentioned, the Billy Reid Denim Shirt just goes with … anything, including the adventure-ready, casual weekend (or weekday!) look seen below. Versatile pants? You bet. A classic fall jacket? Yes. And stylish weatherproof boots? This #OOTD really does have it all. How would you wear it? Let me know on Twitter

To me, I think it just works. And from a weekend hike to a particularly laidback Friday in the office, a pair of the Proof Rover Pants are also going to get the job done — the same can be said of the incredible Taylor Stitch boots as seen above. Seriously, the beauty of building your outfit around one piece (in this case, the Billy Reid Denim Shirt) comes from the variety of options you get from just that one shirt alone. Handy, durable accessories are also going to prove useful no matter where you go, so I’d snap up the Levi’s Cartago Multi-Hole Belt and the exceptionally well-crafted, versatile Barton Springs Diver from DuFrane Watches while you still can. So, where can this ensemble take you? Just about anywhere from a football tailgate to a day hike to an afternoon of beers at your favorite brewery — and perhaps all three at once. How’s that for versatility.

The Friday Read: Jason Isbell, New Danner Boots and Relwen

Here we are, folks. It’s Friday, it’s October, and it’s time to cap off a heck of a week. I spent two incredible days last weekend at the iconic Forest Hills Stadium, celebrating the excellent inagural edition of There’s No Leaving New York. The lovely early fall weekend featured two extraordinary sets from my favorite band and my heroes, The National, plus stellar work from resurgent artists like Cat Power and Future Islands. Seriously, seeing Future Islands play poignant tracks like “Vireo’s Eye,” and then having that night capped off by my favorite band? It really doesn’t get any better, from classics and deep cuts like “About Today” and “Green Gloves,” along with a terrific Cat Power cover.

Saturday night’s performance also featured duets with rising indie rock luminary Phoebe Bridgers on “Sorrow and “I Need My Girl” — talk about a major treat, right?? It’s really been quite the year for The National playing their own festivals — it was a pleasure to be able to trek to Cincy in April for Homecoming, and I’m very hopeful the band brings back both festivals next year. I could go on and on, but for now, I’m really thrilled and happy to be spending the weekend here in Brooklyn with my incredible fiancée Laura — we’re looking forward to exploring the borough and even getting some engagement photos taken! You can follow along with all the fun on Twitter, or you can check out my work on Instagram. Now, let’s hop into a (relatively short) edition of The Friday Read.

A durable cross between hiking boots and Chelsea boots — read more below.
  • As a lover of both Twitter (yep) and live music, I found this Rolling Stone piece on folk rocker Jason Isbell to be mighty interesting — might you feel the same way? Time will tell.
  • So, it’s nearly the weekend after all, right? Finally. And I’ve got just the #OOTD for you. Featuring rugged Chelsea boots — that also happen to be hiking boots?  — along with a cozy, made-in-America sweatshirt and an essential long-sleeve tee, this ensemble can take on darn near anything.
  • Looking for a perfectly cozy fall layer? One that’s actually … stylish? That’s the Relwen Shag Fleece Pop-Zip, the subject of a recent entry of mine for GearMoose. I won’t spoil too much here!

OK, folks — that’s all we’ve got today. Let’s end the week on a high note and kick things off the right way!

The List: Gear Up for October with the Best New Men’s Style Gear to Shop Now

A beautiful pair of leather boots for fall — but one of today’s style essentials.

Here at The Style Guide, you can rest assured that we — and by “we,” I mean your humble staff of one — are always working to outfit you with men’s style essentials for the fall season. As we’ve been saying, it’s a time that requires durable, tough and versatile gear that can work for all the casual style scenarios the season offers, everything form apple picking to tailgating. In that regard, pieces like a stylish zip hooded sweatshirt or durable selvedge jeans have the potential to be daily favorites. As does a favorite record by a favorite band. So, here we go!

Vinyl Me, Please Records: “Boxer” by The National — $29
A classic album by a legendary band.
Is vinyl a fall style essential? When the days are cold, rainy and windy, you bet it is. That’s where the amazing “Boxer” —  by my favorite band (and my heroes) The National — comes in handy.
Todd Snyder x Red Wing 877 Moc Toe Boots — $380
Some of the best boots on tap this season, easily.
Handsome boots from a first-of-its-kind collaboration, available in two seriously cool colors. These are some of the best boots to buy for fall, easily.

Bellroy Minimalist Set — $99

It behooves you to keep your everyday carry essentials on lock — the Bellroy Minimalist Set can surely help you out there. Sleek, functional and stylish.

Wolverine Evans Boots — $400
Beautiful boots from a legendary brand.
It’s never hard to find great boots from Wolverine — the vintage-styled Evans Boots would look excellent with slim dark denim and a grey shawl-collar cardigan. Speaking of stylish men’s denim …

A terrific pair of easy-to-wear jeans.
The Levi’s Made & Crafted line amps up the premium quality you”ve come to expect from the brand, while at the same time reinventing classic styles for today. Sounds good to me.
LCD Soundsystem “American Dream” on Vinyl — $22
One of last year’s best albums — now on fall-friendly vinyl.
Yes, we’re talking more vinyl here. Among other Brooklyn-bred indie bands that are just as relevant today, LCD Soundsystem belongs in that conversation (along with The National!) thanks to last year’s excellent “American Dream” LP.
Flint and Tinder Moleskin Shirt Jacket — $188
A tough-as-nails shirt jacket for fall adventures.
OK, you’ve got your slim dark denim and your tough-as-nails Wolverine  boots .. now, my friends, you just need to pick up the comfortable, rugged Flint and Tinder Moleskin Shirt Jacket.

Style Pick of the Week: Red Wing Heritage Rover Boots

Timeless, durable leather boots that pass every test you could throw at ’em. Image courtesy of Red Wing Heritage.

Let’s keep it simple to start today’s Style Pick of the Week off the right way, folks: For fall, you need nothing less than the Red Wing Heritage Rover Boots on your feet. After all, if you’re going to snap up a pair of stylish leather boots just in time for the season, you might as well make ’em the best of the best.  And if you read the blog at all, you’re aware that we’re all about quality, timeless materials and a distinct sense of versatility & toughness — all of which Red Wing Heritage stands by. And the Rover Boots in particular sit right in the crosshairs of what you should be looking for this fall — boots that simply won’t quit, the kind that’ll pair with your favorite dark denim and a flannel shirt or a thermal henley for weekend (and weekday) adventures aplenty. They’ll work with more outdoors-minded pieces like tough chore pants and a rugged flannel-lined trucker jacket, too. What separates the Red Wing Heritage Rover Boots from the rest of the pack?

SHOP: The Red Wing Heritage Rover Boots and Red Wing Basic Care Product Kit  

It’s simple: The same approach and attention to detail that makes any pair of boots from the brand tough to beat. The best boots for fall start with the best leather, and Red Wing sits at the top in that category — they make it look easy with full-grain, oil-tanned leather from their own Minnesota tannery. Goodyear welt construction, a process that allows the boots to be resoled after years of hard wear, also, sets the beautifully rugged Red Wing Heritage Rover Boots apart from the pack.

Red Wing Heritage
Another look at the workman-like profile of these tough leather boots.

The construction of these boots is notable for another reason — they’re, somewhat incredibly, water, stain and perspiration-resistant — yep, the Rover Boots are as tough and stylish as it gets. You’re also riding easy in terms of comfort: These durable boots are built from the ground up with a crepe rubber sole. So, you know they can stand up to most anything. Might I also suggest you snag a handy Red Wing product care kit to keep the Rover Boots looking fresh? That’ll do it. Heck, even the price is a selling point when it comes to the Red Wing Heritage Rover Boots — try finding a pair of boots like this for under $300 anywhere else. It’s tough to do, yes? I think you’ll agree with me when I say the Red Wing Heritage Rover Boots are all you need for fall, right down to the USA-made construction. Who else is ready to break out these handsome, rugged and stylish boots? I thought so. If you pick up these boots, keep me posted on Twitter. And thanks for reading!
