Well, we’re truly into spring — perhaps you’re the type of guy who grows out a beard for the fall and winter, and you want to part with it (sheds single tear). Perhaps, you just appreciate a classic, old-fashioned shave — either way, the Bespoke Post Lather Box is here to help.

That’s certainly why we count on Bespoke Post here on the blog: Think of something you need, and they’ve got it. And you DO need that close, essential shave, especially to start a new season. It’s even better that the Bespoke Post Lather Box is packed with men’s grooming essentials from Base Light, a modern brand that still respects old-school traditions. So, you’re not only getting Pure Badger Shaving Brush, you’re also getting Base Light’s Hydrate Shave Cream to go along with it — see, that’s the best of the old and the new, all wrapped up in the Bespoke Post Lather Box.

Another considered step to add to your grooming routine.

As if that wasn’t enough, the Bespoke Post Lather Box helps you store your shaving essentials as well, thanks to a modern chrome shaving stand, along with a concrete shaving bowl. That these are two modern takes on the type of products your grandfather would have used is certainly intentional — and the Bespoke Post Lather Box is all the better for it. The final step in the perfect shave for your whiskers? Adding in some of the Restore Post-Shave Balm, designed to cool and soothe your skin. Set aside the balm and the shaving cream, store the brush, then call it a day — the Bespoke Post Lather Box really does make it that easy. Plus, it looks cool and channels that timeless, old-school cool you used to see in Old Spice commercials. Don’t take my word for it, though. Get your hands on the Bespoke Post Lather Box, and your face will thank you.

Side two of this functional, handsome jacket.

Style Pick of the Week: Ebbets Field Flannels Bespoke Post Cap

A unique way to upgrade your outfit — throw on a cool, vintage-inspired hat.

Since when you do need a new ballcap? Since right about now, I’d wager. A ballcap is a somewhat underrated style move in the menswear world — and not everyone is a fan of wearing caps. Bear with me, though. When done right, the humble ballcap can add visual interest and even provide a bit of a talking point for your outfit (seriously, people love cool hats). So, which hat to pick up? Well, the Ebbets Field Flannels Bespoke Post Cap is the ballcap you didn’t know you needed, complete with throwback style points and an air of vintage cool. Ebbets Field Flannels has experienced a resurgence in recent years, resulting in gear that nods to the past and looks great in the present — kind of like your other favorite men’s style essentials (I.e. the classic chambray shirt). It’s also just the right time to break out a stylish vintage-inspired ballcap¬†like this one, provided it’s not a blizzard out there. Yes indeed, the finely crafted Ebbets Field Flannels hat is the right topper for your next winter weekend ensemble — even outside of the work week, we know that the small style details count in every single ensemble. The¬†Ebbets Field Flannels Bespoke Post Cap¬†is also a one-of-a-kind offering, made exclusively for our pals at Bespoke Post to mark the site’s six-year anniversary (hence the use of the felt “B”). And the specs are to be applauded, from the tonal stitching to the hand-crafted construction and that distinctly cool feeling you get from snagging something that’s made in America.

A leather back fastener and nickel pull tab are a departure from regular athletic ballcaps.

Seriously, if you haven’t considered throwing on a ballcap the next time you head out to grab a weekend coffee, run errands or head to Sunday brunch, you can ease into it the right way. The¬†Ebbets Field Flannels Bespoke Post Cap¬†certainly checks off all the boxes — it’s low-key, it’s easy to style and it features much cooler design touches than a regular athletic logo ballcap. The¬†Ebbets Field Flannels Bespoke Post Cap¬†is the type of cap to throw on with a casual crewneck sweater, rugged moc toe boots and perfectly faded denim as you head out for a casual evening. It’ll also work nicely as a travel cap, offering protection from the elements and a bit of shade from the sun if you’re the type to head out on day hikes. No matter what casual ensemble floats your boat, this cap can likely pair up with it. And it just makes sense to round out your wardrobe with a casual, cool hat like this Ebbets Field Flannels ballcap¬†— after all, why not cover all your bases in the menswear playing field?

Are you going to be picking up the Ebbets Field Flannels Bespoke Post Cap? And how will you be styling it?

Style Pick of the Week: Grayers Bayswater Fleece

A new fall and winter layer from a brand that nails the balance between casual and classy style.

My dear friends, it’s time for another Style Pick of the Week — are you as excited as I am? Let’s get pumped. If you’ve checked your calendar as of late, perhaps you were as shocked as I was to see that it’s … NOVEMBER. Seriously — where did the fall season go? That means we’re transitioning to colder temperatures and dressing in rugged fall style essentials all the way. And that means … well, that the Grayers Bayswater Fleece is going to be a new go-to layering move for you. The Bayswater Fleece is the type of modern update to a classic piece that Grayers does so well — slightly preppy, slightly classic and very easily wearable no matter how you style it. The brand draws inspiration from a mix of Americana and British styles, named for the type of pants that became so popular in Britain decades ago. As it were, the Bayswater Fleece is the type of piece that would work on a chilly British morning, maybe as you traipse across your country estate. But I digress. Made from heathered French terry twill fleece, the¬†Grayers Bayswater Fleece is a perfect shirt for casual weekend style — part shirt, part jacket, that is. With two hand warmer pockets and two chest button pockets, it’s the sort of layer you can toss on with ease atop a slim striped henley or a classic chambray shirt — that’s about all you can ask for.

An easygoing silhouette that’s ideal for throwing on with the simplest of looks.

If you’ve been looking for an in-between layer to throw on for a casual stroll through your favorite park or a quick farmer’s market trip, the¬†Bayswater Fleece is it. And if you want a shirt-jacket that you can wear to travel in comfort and style, the¬†Bayswater Fleece is a winner in that regard, too. It adds instant polish to even the simplest of looks, like a classic men’s T-shirt or a vintage-inspired flannel shirt. And if you feel like layering up to take on a chilly fall or winter day? The¬†Grayers Bayswater Fleece fits right in with a quilted field jacket and slim chinos (don’t forget rugged leather boots, either). And on top of its easy-to-wear styling potential, small design touches like those chest pockets and hand warmer pockets provide ample space for all your everyday carry essentials — don’t underestimate the importance of that. So, have you come around to the idea of grabbing the¬†Grayers Bayswater Fleece for seasonal layering? Some pieces just make so much sense that it’s tricky not to buy them — right? Oh, and the good news is that it comes in under $100 via Bespoke Post. Add that to the list of positives, too. Yes indeed, if I were you… I’d make the¬†Grayers Bayswater Fleece my next purchase. Want to let me know what you think of this piece? Hit me up on Twitter.

As always — thanks for reading!
