The Tuesday Steal: Take $60 Off this Billy Reid Sweatshirt Right Now

Now, here’s the thing with shopping the best menswear deals: They tend to go quickly, which is why you’d do well to stock up on the stylish, classic men’s sweatshirt it’s $60 off at Billy Reid ($138, versus $198). That’s quite the deal, especially when the brand in question is led by one of the country’s best menswear designers, Billy Reid. It’s all part of the outstanding and fast-selling Billy Reid Winter Clearance, so I’d do yourself a favor and act quickly. Now, if you’ve read any of my Billy Reid reviews, you know that the Alabama-based brand takes a distinctly cosmopolitan approach to menswear, upgrading classic pieces with refined touches in a way that only Billy Reid can do. Take the Billy Reid Dover Sweatshirt seen here, after all. It’s one of the best men’s sweatshirts in its own right, made in Peru from a medium-weight cotton blend that’s not too overwhelming for layering atop, say one of the best men’s winter shirts. It then gets a neat, rugged upgrade thanks to leather sleeve patches for a tough of old-school cool. Yes indeed, they simply don’t make ’em like the Billy Reid Dover Sweatshirt anymore, except for, well, Billy Reid.

If you weren’t convinced already by that standout deal, just know that the Billy Reid Winter Clearance is moving quickly and won’t be around for very long. It’s rare to find deals on stylish shirting, essential knits, classic sweaters, some of the best men’s denim and more, particularly when you consider the fact that Billy Reid menswear can get quite pricey on its own. Even the Billy Reid Dover Sweatshirt normally retails for close to $200, so seeing $60 get knocked off the purchase price is a very welcome sight indeed. When you want plentiful menswear deals, it’s the Billy Reid Winter Clearance you should shop right now. If you end up scoring this sweatshirt, let me know in the comments. Happy shopping and saving, my friends!

The Friday Read: The Olivers Apparel Mystery Box, BACARDI Rum & A Taylor Stitch Sale

Taylor Stitch Waxed Bomber Jacket

Here’s the deal: It’s Friday, it’s the holiday season and in my estimation, that makes it one heck of a great time to shop and save. It’s never a bad thing to get a deal on some of the best men’s outerwear, and starting tomorrow, that’s what San Francisco-based Taylor Stitch is offering up. The famed brand, one of the best online menswear shops for guys, is running an Outerwear Flash Sale, giving you 25 percent off select outerwear and 50 percent off select archive styles. The Taylor Stitch Outerwear Flash Sale only runs Saturday and Sunday, so mark your calendars accordingly and then get shopping. How’s that for the right way to start a weekend? It’s not bad at all, if you ask me.

It’s one heck of a way to jumpstart your winter wardrobe, and it’s a pretty fitting one in my neck of the woods. I’ll be bundled up on a winter weekend trip back to Michigan to celebrate a friend’s 30th birthday (Chris Spyke, whom I met on the first day of kindergarten, no less!). I can’t believe this milestone is already here, and my own 30th birthday follows next month. Expect great beer and plenty of bundled-up ensembles if you follow me on Instagram, and if not, well, what are you waiting for? I’ll be sure to share more details on the Taylor Stitch Outerwear Flash Sale on social media, too. Stay tuned, shop safe, be well and cheers to more weekend menswear deals!

  • Interested in stocking up on some of the best new menswear at a discount? With some additional goodies up for the taking, to boot? Well, Olivers Apparel has you covered with its Mystery Box promotion right now. Here’s the scoop While supplies last, customers will get to pick between a $150 or $275 Mystery Box. These boxes are both a ‘surprise’ in that the contents of the box are unknown, and they’re also sold for 50 percent off retail. How’s that for finding the best menswear on sale now, right?
  • Who can turn down cozy holiday style? Not I, and I can’t quite turn down the chance to both test out some new apparel and try some classic BACARDI rum. It’s very good news, then, that the legendary brand just launched an apparel collection with Aviator Nation, here just in time for the holidays and plenty of laidback (yet stylish) lounging. While you check that out, of course, you should also use Drizly to get BACARDI delivered to your door. Happy shopping and sipping, folks.
  • If you missed this feature just yesterday, well, have I got the menswear pick you need now. Layer up for winter with this rugged Relwen tanker jacket, the sort of pick you’ll only find within the well-stocked digital shelves of Huckberry. It’s perhaps my new favorite jacket of the moment, and I think you’ll more than agree.

That’ll wrap up today’s Friday Read just in the nick of time, seeing as I’ve got some Michigan winter festivities to enjoy this weekend. I hope you’ve got a fun, safe, holiday weekend planned yourself, ideally outfitted in the most stylish menswear on the market. Thanks for reading and thanks for supporting The Style Guide!

The Sunday Sale: This Bonobos Stretch Shirt Is The Best Menswear Deal to Buy This Season

When is a shirt so much more than just a shirt? When it’s the Bonobos Stretch Everyday Shirt, and namely, when it’s on sale for one heck of a solid deal heading into the depths of fall and the start of the holiday season. There are plenty of great reasons to consider upgrading your shirting rotation for the weeks and months ahead, and helpfully, the makers of some of your favorite pants are also offering up quite the slew of deals in the Bonobos Sale Section these days. If it’s the best menswear deals that you seek, then I’ve got some news for you: You’re going to find them at Bonobos. The long-running brand, founded on making perfect pants for men, is now so much more than that, with the chops to prove it across the board. That goes for cozy outerwear, warm sweaters and of course, one of the best casual shirts for men, too. The Bonobos Stretch Everyday Shirt is the kind of core piece that Bonobos does so well these days, and it’s ideally suited to be paired with Bonobos chinos for casual and dressy days at the office and at home this holiday season (starting soon with Thanksgiving, of course).

Where to begin with the Bonobos Stretch Everyday Shirt, right? For starters, it’s the kind of shirt you really can wear every single day, with classic buttondown construction made to be worn untucked, underneath a shawl cardigan or paired up with your favorite blazer (all of which you can find at a place like the Bonobos Sale Section). The Bonobos Stretch Everyday Shirt has the proper specs for maximum versatility, too — it all starts with a cotton-elastane blend that’s just as stretchy and comfortable as the brand’s Stretch Chinos (again, look for a deal on these in the Bonobos Sale Section).

The shirt available right now comes in a Slim Fit and Regular length, but other sizing options are available in plenty of other Bonobos men’s shirts. In fact, the Blue Check Light Chambray iteration of the Bonobos Stretch Everyday Shirt (which you can wear with everything from tan chinos to burgundy corduroys) retails for $79 and has plenty of sizes available. Whichever color, pattern and fit you select of the essential Bonobos Stretch Everyday Shirt, it’ll certainly prove to be your new favorite daily shirt.

The Friday Read: New Jeans from Mott and Bow, Work-From-Home Footwear & Grayers Face Masks

Get a tee, give a tee — a perfect way to give back to charity relief efforts.

As we kick off another Friday Read here on The Style Guide, we’re going to dive right in the best way possible: By highlighting a great way to give back to front-line first responders. Those relief efforts come courtesy of Huckberry, who just launched its For the Frontlines program. The scoop is this: Put your hard-earned dollars toward both style and a good cause through buying the Proof 72-Hour Frontlines Donation Bundle. You get a stylish merino tee for yourself, and another shirt is being sent to a frontline worker — how cool is that? You can also request a T-shirt of your own if you happen to be a frontline worker. If that’s the case, thank you on behalf of this small Brooklyn style blog for your extraordinary service. The cause is a noble (and stylish) one, so kudos to Huckberry for launching this program.

In the meantime, there are other ways you can give back to COVID-19 relief efforts. For instance: Head to HELM Boots to pick up your new favorite leather boots, then use the code “donate20” to get 20% off your purchase — while $20 goes to relief efforts. It’s a great inititiave with some excellent benefits from one of the most stylish boot brands I’ve come across. There’s also plenty more covered in today’s Friday Read when it comes to new gear, including the best new dive watch on the market (available for pre-order right now from Martenero — more on that below). Now that we’ve covered those items of business, what else is on your weekend to-do list? I’m looking forward as always to tucking into some strong coffee (this time via the Brooklyn outpost of Ninth Street Espresso) and playing a new vinyl record I just got in, the terrific 2017 album “Antisocialites” from Canadian indie rockers Alvvays! Are you a fan? And how are you using your added time at home this weekend? Give me a shout on Twitter, and enjoy the Friday Read below.

Now’s your chance to get an early deal on one of the best new dive watches around.

  • OK, let’s talk watches for a second — like the stylish dive watch shown above. If you’ve been lucky enough to get your hands on a coveted Martenero timepiece (as seen here on the blog), you know they’re the real deal. This stylish watch brand is back in a big way with yet another opportunity to crowdfund a new timepiece — the  Martenero Belgrano is one of the coolest watches to buy now (well, pre-order, at least). Here’s the deal: It’s Martenero’s first dive watch, paying homage to classic models while delivering style all its own. 200 meters of water resistance and a crisp, sharp design help blend fashion and function, and the 316L stainless steel construction ensures plenty of durability. Right now, you can pre-order the Martenero Belgrano for an early bird special of $299 (it’ll ship this September), with prices increasing from there if you don’t snag the deal in time. Act quickly, because that’s a great deal compared to the full retail price of $790. If looks and design are any indication, Martenero has just come out with your new favorite watch — maybe pick up one in every color if you feel so inclined.

  • Here’s your reminder that that yes, yes indeed … you can still shop for and try on some of the best men’s jeans to wear at home. Crucially, stylish jeans with stretch are the kind you should be searching for, and that’s where NYC’s Mott and Bow (a longtime favorite of mine) comes into play. Right now, you can use the code beau10 to get 10 percent off your first purchase at Mott and Bow! Keep in mind, the brand also makes stylish henleys and some of the softest, coolest T-shirts known to man. There’s never been a better time to upgrade your spring at-home style.
  • It’s heartening to see how so many brands are pivoting their operations and looking for ways to give back to COVID-19 relief efforts, is it not? Found under the New Arrivals section, you’ll come across a unique-but-crucial addition to the Grayers brand and its lineup of summer style essentials. That’s right, Grayers is now selling (non-medical) face masks in an array of cool-looking and high-quality fabrics. It’s a sign of the times, to be sure, but it’s a welcome way that the brand is giving back. Pick up a four-pack (or two-pack!) now.
  • NYC-based men’s shoes brand Ankari Floruss (started by prominent menswear aficionados Moti Ankari and Marcel Floruss), recently debuted its first-ever pair of slides for cool, refined at-home style. They’re handmade from 100 percent leather and retail for $117, with a portion of sales going to helping frontline workers in the COVID-19 pandemic. I can’t think of a more stylish way to give back.

Is it really the weekend if you aren’t kicked back, cup of coffee (or cold beer) in hand, perusing some of the best menswear deals of the moment? Not quite. If you’re new here, I’m going to direct you toward another edition of The List — it’s  my weekly roundup of the best men’s gear for plenty of different style situations. Rest assured, although we’re all at home, it’s crucial that you stay dressing in style. Correct? Indeed. OK, that’s all for today. Thanks for reading — stay safe, stay healthy.
