Thanks for joining me on this fine late winter Sunday, my friends. If today’s headline looks a bit familiar as you scour the market high and low for the best menswear essentials, there’s a good reason for that. You see, we’re heading back over to Billy Reid to shop the famed Alabama-based designer’s Winter Event, the jam-packed yet fast-selling sale section that we talked about as recently as last month on the blog.
Pieces like one of the best men’s shirt jackets are still up for grabs, as is the handsome knit shirt from Billy Reid you see above, but those deals just got even better. How so, you might ask? Well, it’s the Billy Reid Sale On Sale currently running now through March 6th, which gives you up to 60 percent off (including 40 percent off already on-sale items). To save even more at Billy Reid’s Winter Event, just use the code EXTRA40 to take your wardrobe to the next level.
There’s a bit of everything up for grabs from the award-winning designer’s namesake brand, from some of the best sweaters for men to Billy Reid henleys, the aforementioned knit shirt and much more. Again, this “sale on sale” — boasting some of the best winter style essentials for men, no less — runs through March 6th, so outfit yourself accordingly while saving more than a few bucks in the process. Shop now, thank me later and get ready to dress in style to close out winter, folks. Stay stylish out there!
If you’ve been on the hunt for the best sustainable menswear and gear, hopefully, you’re familiar with the brand we’re diving into today. If not, you’re in for a real treat. Outerknown, the men’s and women’s style brand founded by surfing legend Kelly Slater, has long been a favorite brand of mind when it comes to gear that balances the rugged with the versatile, and beyond that, it’s pretty remarkable that they’re perhaps one of the most sustainable style brands on the planet. That brings me to the real reason we’re gathered here today: The Outerknown Blanket Shirt is, quite simply, one of the best men’s shirts you can buy now, and that makes it a prime candidate for today’s Tuesday Steal.
Now, you can get the best sustainable menswear from the Outerknown Outerworn Collection (pre-owned), but it’s always nice to invest in a brand-new shirt made the right way. And of course, the list of positive attributes for the Outerknown Blanket Shirt goes on and on, but let’s start with the durable, eco-friendly construction. It’s made from 100 percent organic cotton, removing harmful chemicals from the production process and still delivering a richly crafted, dependable shirt with a tight twill weave. It only gets better from there.
Naturally, the Outerknown Blanket Shirt is a crowd-pleasing favorite, with well over 600 Outerknown reviews on its site that point towards quality style, reliable construction and standout design. For what it’s worth, I’ve got two Outerknown shirts of my own, and my Outerknown review is that, yes, the Outerknown Blanket Shirt is worth every penny. It’s more expensive than a bargain-bin shirt, to be sure (it retails for $148 at Outerknown), but it’s more than worth it. The Outerknown Blanket Shirt is soft to the touch out of the box but as rugged as thicker cotton flannel shirt, and it’s also a nice hybrid between, say, a regular Oxford shirt and a flannel overshirt. That is to say, you can wear the Outerknown Blanket Shirt as both a shirt jacket or a regular shirt, layered up over your favorite henley or worn buttoned up on its own beneath one of the best men’s trucker jackets.
The Outerknown Blanket Shirt also has plenty going for it on the style front, seeing as it comes in a remarkable array of richly crafted colors and patterns. There are a whopping 46 color and pattern options in which you’ll find the Outerknown Blanket Shirt, enough to satisfy both more adventurous and more subdued style palettes. It’s the kind of shirt to be worn casually, untucked with a pair of sustainable Outerknown men’s jeans, but you can also team it with tailored chinos if the mood strikes you. No matter the option you select, and no matter how you choose to style it, the Outerknown Blanket Shirt is an undeniable winner when it comes to sustainable fashion. It’s your new favorite shirt, without a doubt.
