The best new men’s blazer your money can buy? Certainly.

Does the summer season ever to start to wear on you? The heat and the ongoing battle to look stylish even as the thermostat climbs? It can be quite a lot to handle, so that’s why today’s edition of The List is geared to help you make the most of the rest of summer in style, from one of the best men’s blazers as seen above to a few other prime menswear picks that’ll provide the sort of fun¬†and¬†functionality you need to break up the (impending) end of summer. Let’s get to it!

Taylor Stitch Telegraph Jacket — $298

The tailored jacket you’ll find yourself wearing … a lot, to say the least.

Make no mistake, the handsome Taylor Stitch Telegraph Jacket is one of those menswear essentials that seems to pop up frequently here on the blog — it’s the perfect jacket for a summer wedding, and it’s also one you should keep handy for a classy night on the town or a big day at the office (and when layered properly, you¬† can even wear it into the fall). It’s one of the best men’s blazers out there, easily.

Mott and Bow Mercer Denim in Light Khaki — $108

Light khaki denim in a cool, comfortable fabric from Mott and Bow.

Is there ever a wrong time for Mott and Bow denim? I think not, particularly when the Mott and Bow Mercer Jeans are made to be lightweight and summer-friendly, thanks to the agreeable shade of Light Khaki. Certainly, some of the best men’s denim on the market.

Rancourt & Co.¬† Carson Mid Sneakers — $320

Richly crafted leather sneakers to take you from summer on into fall.

You’ve assuredly read about Rancourt & Co. on the blog, seeing as the brand makes some of the best men’s shoes out there, what with made-in-Maine construction & classic durability in mind. Add the handsome Rancourt & Co. Carson Mid to that list now, just in time for fall.

Native North Wyatt Chambray Shirt — $105.98

Here’s another one of the best men’s chambray shirts to add to your rotation.

I love a classic chambray shirt as much as the next guy — and with that being said, it’s sometimes nice to consider adding a new one to your rotation. In that case, the all-season versatility of the Native North Wyatt Chambray Shirt makes it one of the best men’s chambray shirts you’re apt to find.

SYMBOL Audio Unison Record Stand — $2,245

An enviable addition to any home record collection.

OK, is this SYMBOL Audio record stand pricey? Yes. Is it absolutely incredible if you happen to be an audiophile? Yes. Is it on my wish list? Again, yes. A covetable piece of stylish record gear no matter the season (August, September, October … you get the picture).

Jack Mason Diver Watch — $282.98

A rugged, classic dive watch to wear any day of the week.

Back to some slightly more attainable men’s gear. Think of the best men’s watches for summer, and it’s likely you’ll find yourself thinking of a tough dive watch like the Jack Mason Diver Watch. Poised enough for everyday wear, and decidedly ready for one last summer adventure.

Bellroy Travel Passport Wallet — $119

This sleek leather passport wallet is a functional, stylish travel essential.

A richly crafted leather passport wallet really can’t be topped — and it belongs on your list of travel essentials if you’ve got a late summer or early fall getaway planned. On that note, you need the Bellroy Travel Passport Wallet, no doubt about it.

Roka Halsey Polarized Sunglasses — $145

Dependable, tough sunglasses that pack a punch in terms of style and affordability.

You’ve got more than enough time to get some great use out of these Roka sunglasses, which blend functionality and modern style in a package that makes ’em some of the best men’s sunglasses for your hard-earned dollars (and relatively affordable ones, at that).

Flint and Tinder Supima AirKnit Tee — 3 for $75

A classic T-shirt available in a wide array of colors — perfect for the end of summer.

Punch up your summer basics with the Flint and Tinder Supima AirKnit Tee (or heck, three of them for the deal seen above) — we’re talking summer-friendly colors, breezy construction, and the sort of fit that looks great under a rugged denim jacket or all on its own.

Gramicci Shell Jogger Pants — $110

The tecnically savvy, surprisingly stylish pair of adventure pants you need now.

Whether you’re prepping for one last camping trip or a big hiking excursion (or just a laidback day in your local park), the Gramicci Shell Jogger Pants are a versatile, technically inclined pair of adventure pants that won’t let you down.

Peak Design Travel Duffel Bundle — $216

The right gear for a weekend getaway from Peak Design, no doubt.

Again, when we talk about the best gear for a weekend getaway, something like the seriously jam-packed Peak Design Travel Duffle Bundle deserves a spot on your list (along with the Gramicci Shell Jogger Pants, of course).

Faherty Brand Belmar Shirt — $188

A fun, eyecatching shirt that’s versatile enough to wear with dark blue denim any day of the week.

Last but certainly not least, let’s talk about this stylish long-sleeve shirt from Faherty Brand, a perfectly unique way to nod toward the end of summer (while still being highly wearable into early fall). Pair it up with slim light wash jeans — it doesn’t get any better.

That’s going to wrap up today’s edition of The List — do you have a favorite from the above picks? My personal top choice is, naturally, the Taylor Stitch Telegraph Jacket¬† — although it’s hard to beat the functionality of the Jack Mason Diver Watch.

Karl Strauss Boat Shoes Hazy IPA — Price Varies

A bright and sunny IPA with a friendly name and cool can design.

I have good news and I have bad news: The good news, first, is that this hazy IPA nails everything you’d want from the Hazy IPA “trend” (if you can call it that). It’s imminently crushable, with a summer-friendly name and a cool can design. However, it’s only available in California within the brewery’s distribution footprint. If you have a trip planned out there soon, look for it! Speaking of boat shoes …

Yuketen Ox Mocs — $300

The casual, dependable summer moccasins to wear any time happy hour rolls around.

Lisboa Francisco Brushed Oxford — $118

A new summer shirt that’s destined to become a go-to.

Flint and Tinder Heavyweight Tee — $35

A dependable, rugged and classic men’s tee for summer.

A light, drinkable beer to pair with your favorite menswear this season. Image courtesy of House Beer.

Is there any better way to get into the spirit of summer than with an ice-cold, refreshing beer? Plus, some new men’s style essentials? In mind, no sir, no there’s not. That’s where we’re kicking off today’s edition of The List, telling you about a delicious new beer from House Beer to drink right now (well, during happy hour, I should¬† say). If you’re not yet familiar with House Beer, this brand is making a wildly drinkable beer — just one style — in the tradition of old-school lager. It’s refreshing, it’s pleasing to enjoy straight out of a can, and it’s never better than when you pair it with your favorite pair of jeans and an American-made tee. I’ve said too much, though — let’s get started.

House Beer — Price Varies

This classic beer could just be a new favorite.

As I mentioned above, there might not be a better beer to drink at the moment than this crisp, refreshing, retro-inspired lager. House Beer is made with Noble hops in the fashion of a premium lager, and that just means it’s one darn good beer to enjoy out of a can all summer long. You can find House Beer in 12oz. and 16oz. cans (as seen above — mighty crushable in a can, I might add!), plus 12oz. bottles and on draft. Any way you choose to enjoy this beer, it’s nearly perfect for summer. What to pair it with? Your new favorite pair of denim, of course. Speaking of …

Mott and Bow Leroy Jeans — $128

The slim black denim that’s going to come in mighty handy, no matter the day or season.

We’ll go from your new favorite beer to the best men’s jeans you can wear casually — House Beer in hand, of course. That’d be the Mott and Bow Leroy Jeans, an essential pair of slim black denim to wear to an outdoor music festival or an evening on the town.

SeaVees Magnum Legend Sneakers — $88

These printed sneakers are one way to amp up your sneaker rotation.

Prefer to keep things a little more dialed-down on your top half (think a slub T-shirt and slim light wash jeans), yet wanting to go big when it comes to stylish summer sneakers? The SeaVees Legend Sneakers feature an authentic Hawaiian print to wear all season long.

Faherty Brand Sunwashed Polo — $88

The rough-and-tumble (yet affordable!) watch you need now.

In the spirit of getting outside and getting around in style, Timex comes through with your new favorite watch, as dependable an everyday watch as you’re apt to find for summer.

Taylor Stitch Everyday Blazer — $348

A newly iconic everyday blazer for daily wear (truly!).

My friends, they’ve done it — Taylor Stitch, that is. They’ve managed to make a classic navy blazer that’s at once modern and timeless, and it’s the perfect blazer when it comes to what to wear to a summer wedding. The best part? It’s exclusive to our friends at Huckberry.

Karesuando Hunting Axe — $214

The best hunting axe you can buy for your summer cabin.

Is there a good chance this durable hunting axe might become more of a decoration at your cabin than something with actual utility? Potentially. But this rugged axe could just be key to your next outdoor adventure — it’s up to you.

Taylor Stitch Cash Shirt — $128

The dependable denim shirt for all your summer layering needs.

Yes, we’re back with more stylish menswear from Taylor Stitch.¬† Critically, the Taylor Stitch Cash Shirt could just be one of the best men’s denim shirts on the market, and it’s ready to layer up over a crisp white tee with slim tan chinos all summer long.

Bespoke Post Sauna Box — $45

Two essentials for plenty of relaxation from Bespoke Post.

It’s important to remember that every once in a while, a guy just needs a break. For yourself or your partner, get the relaxation-filled Bespoke Post Sauna Box (again, only $45 when you sign up for Bespoke Post).

Pacifico Optical Buckler Sunglasses — $195

Classic men’s sunglasses for everyday summer wear.

The best men’s sunglasses for summer embody a few key qualities — namely, they’re not overpriced, they’re casually cool, and they can be worn with everything from a classic navy blazer to one of the best men’s denim shirts.

Roark Revival Layover Shorts — $65

Stylish, travel-ready summer shorts from Roark Revival.

Speaking of summer style essentials, well, the folks at Roark Revival know how to make ’em. With the cut of tailored shorts and the fabric of adventure shorts, these are perhaps the best shorts for men — especially if you’re a guy on the go.

Billy Reid Pima Cotton Chinos — $175

Every guy — including you — needs a pair of classic navy chinos.

When it comes to tailored menswear for summer, Billy Reid knows how to do it right — particularly in the case of these handsome Pima Cotton Chinos, assuredly some of the best men’s chinos you’re apt to find this season.

Topo Designs Ripstop Klettersack — $189

Whether you gaze at the stars from your backyard or from your camping site deep in the great outdoors, this Nemo Equipment recliner could very well be one of the best camping chairs around. If I ever have the chance to get out of NYC, this is the chair I’m bringing.

The Friday Read: Shinola, Pitti Uomo and New Music by The Killers

This week, I’ve found myself looking¬†back — and looking forward — quite a bit.¬† I’ve been looking back on an incredible mini-trip to Philadelphia and New Jersey to see The Killers about two weeks ago now, and I’ve also been looking back on a great family wedding weekend in Charleston. Both trips brought amazing¬†memories, a dash of excellent #menswear and hearty helpings of craft beer (and in the case of my Jersey trip, stunning live tunes!).

I’m also looking forward to a few other momentous events coming up, including a holiday weekend in NYC surrounding the Fourth of July, plus an exciting month of live music (including a mid-July show by one of my all-time favorite bands, The Naked and Famous!). In the meantime, you can be sure we’ll be talking plenty of men’s style news on the site, from American-made denim to the best shorts to buy for summer and the best new men’s gear to buy now— and plenty more! If that’s of interest, I’d say you should definitely stick around. Before we get to that though, we’ve got a laidback weekend in the Big Apple coming up, and a full rundown of the week in #menswear to kick it off — per usual, as it were! Follow me on Instagram to keep up with the latest, and have a drink on me tonight.

Beckett Simonon

Two distinctly different shoe options available for pre-order from an excellent retailer.

  • Let’s talk summer wedding style as mentioned above — what’s your dress shoe situation like? If you’ve got some time to plan ahead, the fine folks of Beckett Simonon can surely sort you out, and quite handsomely. The company’s well-done pre-ordering process — one that updates you every step of the way via E-mail, from¬†production to shipping¬†— is definitely quite neat. Of course, you might know Beckett Simonon from a Style Pick of the Week entry on the terrific Cole Bomber Jacket on this site, but the brand is so much more.¬† Perhaps you’re familiar with the insanely cool-looking Morgen Trainer¬†as seen above? And from the handsome Dean Oxford in Brown Leather to a sharp and useful collection of three Italian leather belts, the company’s fine craft is evident throughout the entire process. Again, if you’ve got some time to plan ahead, pre-order one (or several?) pairs¬†of the brand’s stylish men’s dress shoes and be prepared to take that late summer wedding by storm.
  • In retail news, one of my favorite purveyors of stylish leather watches, Shinola, just opened what should be an incredible, well-appointed retail space in chic SoHo here in NYC. Swing by if you’re in the Big Apple — you can find this shop in addition to the new Shinola Brooklyn shop and the brand’s handsome flagship in Tribeca. Happy shopping! be
  • We’re at it again — the three-ring circus that is the traveling band of menswear shows (kidding, kidding) is starting up again, this time at the world’s largest menswear fair, Pitti Uomo. As always, it’s brought out its fair share of well-dressed guys and … overly dressed guys. See the best-dressed guys at Pitt Uomo here.
  • Among other menswear developments, I’m particularly excited about a new series launched¬†recently on the blog — it’s called The List, and it’s a rundown of great gear and essentially, the best menswear to buy now. Our first List included a plethora of great picks, from stylish Chelsea boots to a handsome leather watch and summer drinking essentials¬†from my good pals at Bespoke Post. I’m very much looking forward to continuing the series, and I hope you’re looking forward to reading it.
  • Let’s start to wrap things up with some music — agreed? The Killers — a stunning, soul-stirring and ridiculously excellent live band¬†¬†— released their new single, “The Man” late last week. It was fitting coming off¬†of my weekend trip to New Jersey to see them play!¬†Have you heard it yet? It’s a groovy, heavy, funky track that might fit in more readily with Mr. Brandon Flowers’ solo work … and yet, it’s got me as excited as ever to hear their new album, “Wonderful, Wonderful.”
  • Now, I’m¬†moreso¬†a proponent of stylish summer sneakers, but that didn’t stop me from writing about the best¬†sandals for men over at¬†one¬†of my favorite style sites, GearMoose — they’re definitely a summer style essential if you’re on the beach or the boardwalk. Shop on!
    Greats
    In short order, that’s going to wrap up today’s¬†Friday¬†Read — are you ready for the weekend yet? I’m ready to kick back, relax and enjoy a nice, cold beer (or an iced¬†coffee). Catch¬†me tomorrow¬†for¬†our regularly scheduled¬†Style Pick of the Week, and we’ll see you around!
