Can you believe it’s 2022? I certainly can’t, and just as I said when kicking off the year last year, well, it’s even tougher to believe it’s already time to get back into the swing of things by checking out some of the best new gear picks for a new year. As with anything, be it a new diet, a new fitness routine or another new set of goals, these first few days of January provide much-needed perspective and a reset button of sorts as you plot the days, weeks and months ahead. In the past, I’ve asked about your New Year’s style resolutions, but if you’ve indeed resolved to dress better, why not start things off on the right foot and invest in some of the best new menswear from Huckberry?
Each of the picks below are a bit pricier than average, but all the more worth it when you consider the wear you’ll get out of them for years to come. These picks can serve as the centerpiece of an outfit, or they can be combined among themselves or with other wardrobe picks to really drive home versatile style. It really is that simple — here are some of my favorite picks to get you started off on the right foot (in some cases, literally) this year. Cheers!
The Best New Menswear to Buy for 2022 at Huckberry
Danner x Huckberry Vertigo 917 Gold Rush Boots — $245
Want to quite literally start the year on the right foot? Lace up some of the best boots for men from Huckberry and Danner, as previously covered by yours truly on the blog. These are as good as it gets for stylish, active pursuits (and they’ve been selling quickly, to boot).
Schott Plaid Wool Blend CPO Shirt — $140
If your winter wardrobe still feels like it’s missing something — say, one of the best men’s shirt jackets on the market — then this reliably rugged CPO shirt jacket from Schott is the way to go. It’s the perfect way to give your off-duty wardrobe a shot in the arm this winter.
Marathon Navigator Date Watch — $380
The right watch is an underrated accessory that can amp up even the most casual outfits, particularly ones with picks like the best weekend pants (more on that in a second). So, this well-crafted, stylish field watch from Marathon is an ideal addition to your list of everyday carry essentials.
Flint and Tinder 365 Pants — $98
I’ve taken the time in my Flint and Tinder review to sing the praises of these durable, wear-with-anything five-pocket pants, and they’re a perfect pick-up for the new year. Take them to the office then out to the bar and back with ease. I’d call them the best men’s pants to buy right now.
R.M. Williams Comfort Craftsman Chelsea Boots — $495
Want a pair of dress Chelsea boots that step things up a notch from the Huckberry x Danner boots shown earlier? These handsome, perfectly rugged yet supremely sharp R.M. Williams Chelsea boots are an ideal purchase right now.
Marine Layer Crewneck Sweater — $125
Made with a blend of recycled polyester and cotton, this textured sweater is a crisp-but-casual men’s winter sweater to wear with just about anything, but especially a white Oxford shirt, a pair of the best men’s pants and those well-made men’s Chelsea boots shown above. Get to it, folks!
Are you feeling inspired and ready to start the new year in style? It can be tough to revamp your wardrobe right after the holidays, especially in terms of budget, but if you invest in just a few solid pieces and build from there, your work will begin to pay serious dividends. Take one of the best winter sweaters, for instance, and team it with a pair of dress Chelsea boots, an Oxford shirt and some of the best men’s pants, and just like that, you’re ready for a night on the town or a day at the office — that’s all there is to it sometimes. Happy shopping and Happy New Year!
