Folks, there’s no rest for the weary today as we kick 2020 off with a bang — yes, that’s right … 2020. It’s hard to believe it’s already a new year and *gulp* a new decade … but that doesn’t mean your commitment to men’s style essentials has to stop, or shift, or change. Let’s look at this new year as one of further grow in terms of classic and adventurous men’s style, and all the things that the best men’s style can bring to your life (from greater confidence to improved work performance — seriously!). The adage “Look good, feel good” has never held more weight than it does right now, and with that being said, I’m here to tell you all about the best new men’s gear … for a new year, and possibly … a new you. We’ll start with the incredible Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt in Rust Plaid, and go from there with 10 of the best new men’s gear picks. Cheers to a new year!
Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt in Rust Plaid — $125
A true favorite of mine (as you might have seen on my Instagram), and soon to be one of yours as well, the Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt is one of the best men’s shirts on the planet, made from incredible fabric and featuring the ability to be layered over your favorite henley or worn on its own. It’s too good to be true … except it’s not. It’s the best shirt to buy to start 2020.
Duke Cannon Solid Cologne — $25
The new year is perhaps the best time to update your men’s grooming essentials — and what better place to start than Duke Cannon and the lauded, excellent-smelling Duke Cannon Solid Cologne? This is the right way to amp up your personal scent (for the better).
Faherty Brand Legend Sweater Shirt — $178
Speaking of dependable layers to start 2020, this rugged overshirt from Faherty Brand has all the makings of one of the best new winter shirts for cold weather. From the super-soft fabric to the layering-friendly cut, this is one of the best overshirts your author has seen in some time.
Flint and Tinder Golden Bear Suede Trucker Jacket — $998
The quest to find the best leather jacket on the market (on the planet?) continues, but it would appear that the Flint and Tinder Golden Bear Suede Trucker is giving that title a run for its money. Wear this rugged trucker jacket (which actually comes off as quite refined thanks to the rich suede) with any of the menswear essentials on this list, the AT Slim Pants from Western Rise included.
Mott and Bow Classic Cashmere Crewneck — $149
Yes, that’s right — the makers of your favorite jeans are coming for more of your wardrobe with this classic cashmere sweater, a handsome compliment to slim Mott and Bow jeans if ever there was one. Another stylish sweater to improve your office style.
Western Rise AT Slim Pants — $128
If you want a pair of the best new men’s pants, the sort of pair that can be worn to the office and on the weekends, on your commute or your Sunday coffee run … get the durable AT Slim Pants from Western Rise. There some of the most durable pants out there, with surprisingly sharp style built right in.
Form-Function-Form Horween Leather Chronograph — $128
The new year is also as great a time as any to upgrade your watch collection with one of the most affordable leather watches your hard-earned cash can buy. The uniquely made Form-Function-Form Horween Leather Chronograph features an innovative strap design and of course, a tough Timex chronograph watch. Be sure to wear it with a classic cashmere sweater for easygoing office style.
Yuketen Maine Guide 6-Eye DB Boots — $616
Yes, that’s right — we’re telling you all about the best leather boots to invest in to start the year. The incredible thing about these Yuketen boots is that you’ll have them long after 2020 — they’re some of the most well-made boots you can spend your hard-earned dough on.
Wellen Headlands Sweater — $138
We’ve talked about Wellen previously as one of the best new brands to shop if you want sustainable style, and the Wellen Headlands Sweater exemplifies that dual-minded approach quite nicely. It’s the rugged winter sweater you’ll find yourself reaching for whenever the weather takes a turn.
Flint and Tinder Check Buttondown — $108
We’ve focused on the right men’s style essentials to shop if you want to start making upgrades to your look, and there’s hardly a better place to start than with one of the best men’s shirts from Flint and Tinder. The well-made Flint and Tinder Check Buttondown exemplifies classic style for the office and the weekend.
Although it’s tough to narrow down any list of the best new men’s gear to just 10, how do you think we did? Perhaps you’re now coveting a pair of the the best leather boots from Yuketen? Or maybe the Flint and Tinder Check Buttondown is now a must-buy? My favorite from this entire list, of course, might just be the rugged-yet-versatile Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt — if you want to weigh in with a take of your own, shoot me a note on Twitter. Cheers to 2020!
