The List: Gear Up for the Rest of Summer Right Now with these Men’s Style Essentials

Just one of many essentials you’ll need to enjoy summer — right now.

You see those stylish summer slip-ons from Nisolo pictured above? They’re one of just many keys to unlocking a laidback, easygoing summer (for the rest of the season, that is to say). And there are oftentimes some seriously straightforward ways to make it easier on yourself. That’s where today’s post comes in. You can find some of my favorite gear picks from the Huckberry Summer 2019 Catalog (and plenty more places!) outlined below. Once you dive into these men’s style essentials for the rest of July and August, there’s no telling where you’ll want to go next. Have any thoughts on other must-have men’s gear picks? Let me know on Twitter.

Nisolo Alejandro Woven Slip-ons — $178¬†

The perfect middle ground between dressy and casual when it comes to summer footwear.

Aren’t these just calling out to be worn on vacation? Now, there’s a major difference between the best pair of slip-ons and your standard, flimsy flip-flops. The Nisolo Alejandro Slip-ons are nothing to slouch at, as easy to wear with slim chinos and a stylish summer polo as they are with chino shorts and your favorite T-shirt.

Faherty Brand Beacon Trunks — $98

The eyecatching summer swim trunks you need in your life (and your wardrobe).

You know Faherty Brand for expertly cut flannel shirts and stylish cardigans, but what about must-have swim trunks for summer? Like the Beacon Trunks? Consider these vacation-ready.

Banks Journal Business and Pleasure Short-Sleeve Shirt — $70

Your new go-to summer shirt? It very well could be.

If ever there was a modern, stylish short-sleeve shirt that looked like it should be worn by James Bond, it might be the Banks Journal Business and Pleasure Shirt. A breezy fabric and a classic fit make this a winner from the Huckberry Summer 2019 Catalog.

DuFrane Barton Springs 656 Diver Watch — $656

An astonishingly durable watch for summer adventures.

Aptly named according to the price, the DuFrane Barton Springs Diver is the must-have watch of summer, made so that it doesn’t miss a beat — it can go from the beach to the boardwalk to the bar with ease, so that means it’s one of the best men’s watches out there right now (seen previously in my guide to what to wear to happy hour).

SLVDR Keck Tee — $50

The perfect summer T-shirt? You be the judge of that, my friend.

The search for one of the best men’s T-shirts remains elusive and challenging — yet, if you want a retro-inspired change of pace, reach for the SLVDR Keck Tee, then wear it with stylish high-top sneakers and stylish slim jeans. Speaking of …

Mott and Bow Slim Mercer Jeans in Olive — $118

A change of pace from the typical — in the best way possible.

If you’re the type who still loves wearing slim jeans in the summer, then just know that not every pair you wear has to go full-on light wash — these Mott and Bow jeans in a handsome shade of olive are simply perfect for all those other times.

Roark Revival Layover Shorts — $65

Functional zippers and comfortable fabric add another dimension to these stylish shorts.

Functional summer shorts are actually out there — if you know where to look. And the travel-ready Roark Revival Layover Shorts are as functional and dependable as it gets. Easily some of the best shorts for summer I’ve tested this year.

Pantropic Tucson Fedora — $134

A breezy summer hat that’s made the right way.

Don’t start by writing off the fedora just yet — the Pantropic Tuscon Fedora is a stylish summer hat that wouldn’t look out of place with a camp collar shirt and breezy linen pants on your next beach vacation.

Tom Beckbe Bottle Flask — $150

The potentially perfect sipper to bring to your next bonfire.

Is a heritage-quality flask a true¬†must-have part of your everyday carry? Well, that’s debateable. But the Tom Beckbe Bottle Flask could be the perfect companion on a breezy summer evening stroll (beverage of choice not included).

Mott and Bow Classic V-Neck Tee in California Blue — $32

The right V-neck tee to wear on easygoing summer days.

OK, back to menswear. Summer is all about laidback style — and this stylish V-neck T-shirt, again from Mott and Bow, is a lot more well-made than V-neck T-shirts of years gone by (looking at you, American Apparel). Wear it with Mott and Bow jeans, if you feel so inclined.

Taylor Stitch Western Shirt — $125¬†

A Western shirt unlike any other on the market, and that’s a fact.

Another standout from Taylor Stitch? Assuredly. This classic Western shirt gets a modern upgrade in a lightweight, cotton-hemp blend. Wear it with a pair of the brand’s standout chinos for maximum effect.

Mystery Ranch Mission Wheelie — $345

A tough suitcase that can fit absolutely everything you need (and then some).

So, you’ve got all the stylish summer gear you could ever want … but nothing in which to pack it for your next summer adventure. That changes with the Mystery Ranch Mission Wheelie, one of the toughest, best rolling suitcases for all your essentials.
