The List: This is All the Best New Men’s Gear You Need This Week

Lace up the SeaVees Mariner Boots for the end of October and beyond — simple as that.

Can you really feel it in the air now? While some say fall is too short — a darn shame! — I think it’s just right in terms of the atmosphere, the excitement, and naturally … the opportunity to gear up with the best fall style essentials from top to bottom. Take the excellent SeaVees Mariner Boots up above. They’re the perfect sneakers for fall, the kind of pair you can wear if you don’t want to give up your lace-ups in favor of rugged leather boots. I think you’ll find similarly helpful gear throughout the rest of today’s edition of The List — let’s take it away.

SeaVees Mariner Boots (Huckberry Exclusive) — $158 

Lace up these tough high-top sneakerboots for anything that comes up this fall.

We mentioned above that the perfectly rugged, effortlessly versatile SeaVees Mariner Boots are some of the best high-top sneakers for fall … or are they boots? Regardless, these can be worn with everything from tough chore pants to expertly faded denim.

Schott Natural Waxed Leather Cowhide Cafe Racer Jacket — $850 

A rugged, highly durable, classic leather jacket. Simply perfect!

If it’s one of the best leather jackets for men that you seek — as in, a truly iconic leather jacket from a brand like Schott NYC — you’d do worse than to get this stylish cafe racer jacket. Wear it as often as you want, and on any adventure you can dream up.

Edwin Maddox Slim Jeans — $168

Perfectly faded jeans for seriously cool fall style.

Speaking of expertly faded denim, this pair is precisely what you need for casual fall weekends aplenty. Wear them with your favorite hooded sweatshirt and again, a pair of the best high-top sneakers for fall for nicely executed, laidback style at your next tailgate.

Taylor Stitch Maritime Shirt Jacket in Rust — $188

A beautifully crafted shirt jacket to wear all season.

It’s no secret that when it comes to fall’s best shirts, well, Taylor Stitch undoubtedly comes to play. The Maritime Shirt Jacket is the latest example of this commitment to rugged style, and it’s easily one of the best shirt jackets for fall.

Grifter Company Classic Deerskin Gloves — $59.98

The only gloves you’ll need for fall travel and fall adventures, no doubt about it.

‘Tis the season to buy some of the best new gloves, is it not? Grifter Company has long been a favorite for the ways in which they offer up beautifully crafted, superbly tough gloves for fall and winter.

Proof Strong Shirt — $128

A versatile take on the classic chambray shirt, ideal for fall.

We’ll keep the hits rolling here with this classic denim shirt from Proof— it’s made to move with you and can be paired up with everything from a slim navy blazer to, yet again, a stylish cafe racer jacket.

Zodiac Chrono Quartz Watch — $495

A tough and rugged leather watch pairs perfectly with plenty of fall outfits.

Fall is the perfect time to up your watch game — you want to be reaching for something with a bit more rugged appeal, and a stylish leather watch like the Zodiac Chrono Quartz Watch fits the bill nicely.

Flint and Tinder Premium Slub Long-Sleeve Henley — $58

A classic henley that provides the right texture and style for fall.

If you read the pages of The Style Guide regularly, perhaps you’re well-acquainted with my love of a rugged henley, no? Well, add the Flint and Tinder Premium Slub Henley to your shopping list ASAP in that regard.

UFO Pumpkin Beer — Price Varies

A rich, classic fall beer to add to your rotation.

Now, pumpkin beers can be a bit divisive, but when done right, this is another worthy style to add to your fridge this fall — especially the UFO Pumpkin Beer, made in the Northeast with real pumpkin (yep!) and seasonal spices for a fantastically fall-ready flavor. A perfect sipper for your next tailgate or on a cold fall evening.

Topo Designs Wool Shirt — $169

The rugged shirt to wear on a cold fall night, pumpkin beer in hand.

Looking for the right layer to top off your rugged henley? Look no further than this classic wool shirt in a rich, fall-appropriate color from Topo Designs — it’s the perfect pairing.

Black Diamond Equipment Forged Denim Pants — $125

Remarkably tough, rugged denim made for anything you can dream up.

Over the past weeks, from trips to my favorite park to days at the office to visits to my favorite brewery, I’ve found myself turning toward one pair of pants in particular. These rugged black jeans from Black Diamond Equipment are every bit as tough as they look, made with CORDURA fabric for toughness, stretch and comfort. If you’re a climbing fan but also want to look sharp back in town, these are the jeans for you. And if you just want some slim black jeans with workwear flair to wear to a casual office? Pick these up ASAP.

Rustico Knox Bifold Leather Wallet — $50

A dependable, heritage-quality leather wallet.

An American-made leather wallet is something to be cherished, enjoyed and then used on the daily — take the Rustico Knox Leather Wallet, for instance. It’s one of the best men’s wallets for your everyday essentials.

Brionvega Grattacielo Radio — $148.98

One of the best Bluetooth speakers in terms of offering some serious bang for your buck.

Let’s shift from talking about the best men’s wallets to talking about this stylish, portable Bluetooth speaker sized to fit right on your bookshelf. Sleek, futuristic and made to deliver crystal-clear sound, it’s an ideal speaker to turn on as you relax at home during a crisp fall weekend afternoon.

Cooper and Thief Bourbon Barrel-Aged Wine — Price Varies

Rich red wine to complement a chilly fall night.

If you follow me on Instagram, perhaps you saw that last month, I had the chance to spend a lovely evening with Cooper and Thief (makers of rich, bourbon barrel-aged wine) and Billykirk leather goods at the Billykirk studio learning about the fine art of both leather craftsmanship and cocktail creation. Point being, if you want to surprise and delight your guests this fall, you’d be hard-pressed to find a cooler or more delicious wine than Cooper and Thief (and this is coming from a craft beer guy!).

Fabric Skincare Starter Kit — $12

Two simple, effective additions to your daily skincare routine.

There’s something to be said for finding the right skincare routine — and keeping your routine simple, effective and efficient is the best way to go about that process. The Fabric Skincare Starter Kit, in that regard, is excellent (I should know — I’ve been testing the line!). Packed with anti-aging ingredients and made to heal skin, this is the way to upgrade your fall grooming game now.

Astorflex Greenflex Rubber Sole Chukka Boots — $165

Surprisingly tough, street-friendly chukka boots.

Last but not least … want to step out in a pair of the best leather chukka boots without compromising city-ready style? These rubber sole chukka boots from Astorflex are stylish, sleek, versatile, and yes, functional.

So, do you have any favorites from the above list? Maybe it’s something casual, like a pair of expertly faded denim? Or perhaps you want to go durable with some rubber sole chukka boots from Astorflex? Even better yet, want to properly gear up for fall with one of the best leather jackets for men? Folks, the choice really is yours. Enjoy, and happy shopping!

The Friday Read: Chicago, The Best Men’s Field Jackets and ALTA Supplements

From fall weather finally starting to arrive in NYC to recent entries here on the blog — like this week’s rundown of the best men’s shirts for fall — the best season for all of us #menswear fans is truly starting to take shape. How’s your week ending, and how’s your weekend looking? If you’re going traipsing through an apple orchard, hiking in your local park or perhaps just knocking back a few fall beers at your favorite brewery, I’d suggest you dress in rugged fall style, perhaps with a classic flannel shirt? Ehh? I’m looking forward to getting out and about this weekend, too — in fact, I’m heading to Chicago once again as we speak! I’ll be catching up with old college friends and enjoying the city’s craft beer & menswear scenes, per usual. I had an excellent time visiting Chicago this past summer — and taking in Lollapalooza Chicago — and I know more great times are in store soon. Have suggestions on Chicago activities for me? Hit me up on Twitter, or check out The Style Guide Facebook page! For now, let’s get the weekend going, shall we?

  • I guarantee you that you need one — a stylish field jacket, that is! Shop my picks for the best men’s field jackets for GearMoose recently, my friends.
  • Y’all are familiar with the excellent #menswear coming out of Bridge & Burn, right? I visited the brand on a West Coast trip to Portland last month, and I’ve also interviewed founder Erik Prowell here on The Style Guide. That being said, I’d encourage you to shop my favorite picks from Bridge & Burn, as covered on The Manual recently! Cheers!
  • We’ve had lots of content going up on the blog lately, but among the menswear I’m recommending you pick up for fall, the SeaVees x Huckberry Coronado Boot is a unique shoe that’s part sneaker, part boot and plenty stylish. Read more here.
  • Finally — and outside of the menswear realm — taking care of yourself, your well-being and your work life is, to say the least, vitally important. That being said, there’s a new supplement on the market that can help you along on that front. ALTA, a vegan supplement delivered in crisp packaging via the brand’s subscription model, is doing it right with ALTA Focus and Mood supplements, newly launched and ready to help you power through whatever’s on your plate. I’ve tried out the Focus supplement recently, and can definitely recommend it (and thank you to the brand for sending!). Will you be giving it a shot soon?


That’s all I’ve got today, my friends. Need new fall boots? Shop away. Want a stylish shirt for fall? This post should have you covered.

And with that — thanks for reading!

Online Shopping Picks: Grab This New Gear for Early Fall

What exactly do we mean at The Style Guide when we say early fall gear? That’s the question, right? Well, we’re on the verge of September and if you haven’t put together your fall style wish list, perhaps it’s time to start thinking. We’ll be focused on my fall style favorites next week, but for now, let’s get a jump on shopping — shall we?  We’re digging into those nice-to-have essentials for when that first crisp breeze hits and you head out to a football tailgate or a day hike or a bonfire … or any other like-minded fall pursuits. When the time comes, you’ll, be ready. A handsome leather flask? You got it.  A rugged leather dopp kit for all your long weekends away?  It’s on this list below.  There a few other picks that straddle the line between apparel and handy everyday carry gear, and that’s a good thing — fall is perhaps the best season for #menswear, right? With that spirit in mind, let’s get to work. After all, fall’s on the way. If you want to see how I’m transitioning into the season, hit the “Follow” button on Instagram, or keep up with my of-the-moment musings on Twitter.

The Boots: Unmarked Roll-Top Desert Boots — $159.98

Classic, uniquely made and ready for fall adventures.

What would fall be without a unique, yet decidedly classic, pair of desert boots? Particularly early fall, ehh? Unmarked is making its Roll Top Desert Boots with both craftsmanship and flair — these feature a unique silhouette, handmade construction and a one-piece heel counter/ankle collar. Construction details aside, they’re the ideal pair of rugged (yet not over-the-top) classic desert boots to take you into early fall.

The Sweater: Flint and Tinder 10-Year Pullover in Navy — $89

Flint and Tinder

The type of hoodie you can wear over a classic Oxford — seriously.

Just as you need an easygoing pair of desert boots for all occasions — or nearly all occasions — so too do you need a stylish sweatshirt that’s truly a grab-and-go piece. The 10-Year Pocket Pullover from my pals at Flint and Tinder features better looks than your average hoodie, thanks to raglan stitching and no gaudy logo. Add in the soft fabric, the on-point fit and the array of color options, and the 10-Year Pocket Pullover is  a sweater that can go from the apple orchard to the bar, no sweat.

Gear Patrol American Craft Beer Field Guide — $9

Gear Patrol Field Guides

A trusty guide to take with you on a weekend trip.

While we’re out there talking rugged menswear like a classic hooded sweater and stylish desert boots, let’s talk about travel companions. Like, for instance, that trusty book you take with you wherever you go, and can pick up just about any time. The first of many Gear Patrol Field Guides fills that void if you happen to be a craft beer lover  (like me). And seeing as fall is a prime time for switching from light, crisp beers to richer brews, you best study up. Perfect for taking on a weekend away, preferably en route to a brewery.

The Flask: Slightly Alabama Hand-Stitched Leather Flask — $109.98

Ever seen a flask this cool? I certainly haven’t.

Ahh, here it is: The handcrafted, rugged leather flask we mentioned earlier. It’s the small pleasures in life that really count, and if ever you’ve wanted to take your favorite spirit to a tailgate or bonfire in style, this Slightly Alabama leather flask is the way to do it. With plenty of attention to detail and an aesthetic that doesn’t look half-bad resting on your mantle, Slightly Alabama has outdone themselves here — an expensive piece, but well worth it.

The Bonfire Essential: Sturdy Brothers Firewood Carry — $127

A heck of a way to haul your firewood — to say the least.

OK, maybe it’s not a full-on essential if you’re a city dweller like yours truly. And yet if you dwell outside the big city, why not grab something that’s rugged, durable and tough as nails to haul that firewood you’ll undoubtedly be chopping for bonfires aplenty? Again, do you need the Sturdy Brothers Firewood Carry? Ehh … perhaps  not. But will the Sturdy Brothers Firewood Carry work for seasons to come, through all types of weather? Absolutely.

The Travel Essential: Sturdy Brothers Horween Leather Dopp Kit — $138

Make this dopp kit the next addition to your weekender bag, yes?

OK, you’ve got your handy field guide, your rugged desert boots and your stylish weekender for an early fall getaway. What are you going to put your toiletries in for said getaway? Easy: The Sturdy Brothers Horween Leather Dopp Kit. Certainly, it’s a unique choice as far as dopp kits go, but the rugged leather and standout color of this stylish dopp kit will definitely help it fit in with the cooler climes of fall. It’s all about the details, yes?

We’re going to wrap this one up now — time to prep for fall, ehh? Transitioning from the heat of summer is all about reaching for pieces that are suited for all your fall adventures. Take rugged desert boots and a stylish casual sweater and wear ’em through plenty of weekends, for starts. And those everyday carry pieces that you can’t go on a trip without — like a uniquely stylish dopp kit — are going to serve you well, too. And then … because it’s fall … there are tough-as-nails pieces of gear that are just pleasing to have around. Take the Slightly Alabama leather flask as seen above, or the rough-and-ready Sturdy Brothers Firewood Carry.  After diving into this post, I’m certainly ready for a little early fall fun. How about you? You can check back here next week for our full Fall Style Wish List. Up next: A new See Now, Buy Now  post! 

Stay stylish!

See Now, Buy Now: Your Next Oxford Shirt Is Made in America by Flint and Tinder

Flint and Tinder

Just one way to wear the stellar, remarkably well-made Flint and Tinder Oxford via Huckberry.

If there’s a shirt that stylish guys like you and me could — or should — wear everyday, it’d be the classic Oxford shirt. And luckily for you and me, the latest entry in The Style Guide’s See Now, Buy Now series fits the bill quite perfectly; it’s simply a piece that should likely buy, well, right now.  We last talked about stylish wingtip boots for fall, and the astonishingly well-made, well-fitting and great-looking Flint and Tinder Texas-Made Oxford is assuredly next in line as you plan out your fall style wish list. Call it the changing of the seasons or the soon-to-be-changing color palette in nature, but as we look toward fall (and rugged fall style), yours truly is quite partial to the Flint and Tinder Charcoal Oxford . It’s worth noting that each of these classic Oxford shirts is stylish as heck, though. From the can’t-go-wrong light blue Flint and Tinder Oxford to the brand’s crisp white Oxford shirt, each can go just about anywhere (and it’s absolutely an asset that either one would team well with a pair of American-made denim from the fine folks at F&T).

And it’s certainly just as beneficial that they’ve found the right company to make these durable, modern-fitting Oxford shirts — a family outfit by way of El Paso that’s dialed in the slim-but-not-tight fit and well-crafted fabric (wearable even in the summer). Having checked out the Charcoal Oxford Shirt seen above, I can certainly vouch for this line through and through. Yes indeed, Flint and Tinder Oxford shirts check all of the boxes in your search for the perfect Oxford shirt. Able to team with a lightweight cotton sweater and slim chino shorts in the weeks ahead, and just as ready to wear under a crunchy tweed blazer alongside … you guessed it, rugged wingtip boots in the fall and winter. Oh, and they’re positively perfect in any color you pick up. When you find a shirt that great, it deserves your time, attention and dollars. True? True.

Is the Flint and Tinder Texas-Made Oxford the shirt for you? Let me know in the comments below!

The Friday Read: Rugged Fall Style, Oliver Cabell and Hard Graft Gym Bags

Editor’s note: Expect these posts once a week on Fridays — consider this a jumpstart on reading for your weekend downtime. Expect a mix of style and non-style content. For more entries, click here.

So if you’re joining us here today on The Style Guide, that must mean it’s Friday. And if it’s Friday, it’s time for another round of The Friday Read, where we tackle the best of the week in #menswear — with a dash of music and fine spirits joining us in today’s post. First things first — thanks to everyone who participated in this week’s Dickies X-Series Denim giveaway this week. We’ve had the pleasure of some crisp, brisk fall weather this week in NYC — if that happens to be the case for you as well, I’d urge you follow the behind-the-scenes action on Instagram and check out how to dress for fall. We’re talking indigo chore coats, slim garment-dyed pants and a tough Horween leather watch. Oh, and an essential crewneck sweater for your fall wardrobe — that’s a thing, too. It’s been fun to break out some tougher layering pieces for the chilly weather, and rest assured that we’ve got plenty more fall style-centric content in the weeks ahead. Namely, we’re diving into the archives with tomorrow’s Style Pick of the Week — and then jumping right back to the present day with our very own Thanksgiving Style Suggestion. It’s tough to believe it’s that time of year already! But, not to worry — we’ll be offering up all manner of holiday style picks, from what to wear to your holiday party to what to buy for your significant other. In the meantime though, I’ve got a weekend of travel ahead — I’m heading on a quick trip upstate to the lovely town of Hudson for a bit of rest, relaxation and menswear-themed exploration. Follow along via Twitter, look for a full recap blog post coming on Monday, and check out everything you need to know from the week in men’s style news.

  • Who can pass up the chance to combine refined spirits and great menswear? Not that many folks, that’s who. The fine spirits purveyors at Glenfiddich launched a fall capsule collection — titled Wardrobe XXI — with none other than menswear luminary Josh Peskowitz. The lauded fashion vet, who recently opened up Magasin, a menswear lifestyle boutique, curated four men’s style capsule collections on behalf of Glenfiddich. The brands run the gamut from contemporary — Camoshita United Arrows to slightly edgy (FEIT). And each capsule, which is sold at select retailers like NYC’s Gentry and Miami’s Alchemist, pays homage to Glenfiddich’s 21 Year Old Reserva Rum Cask Finish. Now, great whiskey and great menswear? That’s something we can all get behind.
  • If you’re hitting the road for Thanksgiving next week, you need to know how to travel in style. That just got easier with the introduction of the Arcata Travel Kit from premium accessories brand Oliver Cabell. We rounded up the best dopp kits for men on this blog earlier this year, but this dopp kit is a worthy addition. Thanks to the brand’s transparency — right down to the material and labor costs displayed on its Web site — you know you’re getting a premium, road-ready piece.
  • We’ve covered the best men’s weekender bags, but you might want to add another to your list. The Hard Graft Gym Bag Volume Two is a beautifully crafted, superbly done bag that merges tremendous functionality with stellar looks. Give it a read via yours truly at GearMoose!


Looking for something to read — or listen to — this weekend?

  • If it’s a relaxing weekend listen you seek, might I suggest the eloquently produced “On Hold” from everyone’s favorite ethereal music trio, The xx? Give it a listen over at Pitchfork. You won’t regret it!

That’s all we’ve got from my neck of the woods — stick around and check out your new favorite fall jacket, or a rugged fall layering essential, before you take off for the weekend.

Stay stylish,

-Beau

Style Pick of the Week: Flint and Tinder Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker Jacket

Editor’s note: Expect these posts weekly detailing one standout item coveted by yours truly. Sometimes, these fit within budgetary restrictions and other times, they’re expensive splurges worth saving for. For more Wish List items from Beau, head here, and to see other Style Picks, head here.

A much-coveted, super-durable jacket that's ready for all sorts of fall conditions.

A much-coveted, super-durable jacket that’s ready for all sorts of fall conditions.

 

Can you feel it in the air? Maybe? A little bit? It might just be, dare I say it … the perfect time to break out the Flint and Tinder Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker Jacket. Now, it’s newly restocked, but it won’t be around for long. It made this site’s Fall Style Wish List, and as we’ve said repeatedly at The Style Guide, fall might just be the perfect time for menswear. To beat the chilly k no further than the latest introduction from the great folks at Flint and Tinder and Huckberry . Part of the excellent Flint and Tinder fall collection, the Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker Jacket very well might be your new fall )and winter?) go-to when it comes to outerwear. The season certainly did get off to a bit of a late start this year, but that’s not to say you won’t get plenty of use out of this stellar coat for several months to come. It layers up very nicely over a classic chambray shirt and it’s the ideal complement to a classic Flint and Tinder henley (wouldn’t you know it?). Oh, and you could even boldly layer it under a navy topcoat for just a dash of rugged-refined style. Why exactly should you drop nearly $200 on this waxed trucker jacket? Well, that’s easy.

Sturdy hardware and a modern fit also make this jacket a great investment.

Sturdy hardware and a modern fit also make this jacket a great investment.

Just as with all of Flint and Tinder’s stylish knitwear, the Waxed Trucker is made in America using high-quality materials and detailing that’s simply top-notch. That starts with silver hardware and rolls right on through to the modern fit and durable waxed 7oz. Martexin sailcloth. You can even customize the fit to your liking with slide buckles at the waist. Yessir, this thing is sturdy as heck. It’s cut to hit above the waist, just like your favorite spring denim jacket. But, there’s something a bit tougher about this jacket – namely, that tough waxed sailcloth exterior and flannel lining, both of which will more more than ably stand up to biting fall winds and chilly rain — or snow, if you layer it under a topcoat. It’s certainly the kind of jacket you should look to wear as much as possible (particularly given that price tag). Team it with a flannel shirt, wear it over a stylish cardigan and rock it time and again with a merino T-shirt and dark denim the next you dash out to grab coffee. Oh, and you might do well to layer it over Flint & Tinder’s ridiculously durable 10-Year Hoodie, too. It’s going to work in slightly dressier situations, too – truly. You can certainly swap this Flint and Tinder jacket out for a blazer at the office, but it’s a reliable layering piece. Give the Flint and Tinder Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker Jacket a try sometime, ehh? It should be every bit as good as advertised – and then some.

Get the Flint and Tinder Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker Jacket as soon as you can at Huckberry.
