My friends, the above headline says it all, but consider this a helpful refresher as we close out the weekend today. The Todd Snyder Winter Sale is still going on, with deals that really are better than ever. Of course, we talked about one of the best winter menswear deals on the blog this past Friday, but again, deals this outstanding are tough to pass up (and certainly worth a reminder in their own right).
The famed American menswear designer, as you know if you peruse the pages of this site, does everything from stylish cashmere sweaters to one of the best trucker jackets on the market. Luckily, some of those very pieces are up for grabs right now at as much as 60 percent off. That’s right: Use the code WINTER30 toget as much as 60 percent off at one of the country’s best menswear designers.
As always with any sale from Todd Snyder, these discounts won’t last forever, so make haste — I’ll leave you to it. Happy shopping, my friends!
In need of a surefire style upgrade heading into the new year? The kind of style move you can rely on day after day, week after week as cold weather bears down relentlessly this season? You’re in luck with the Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt, and your good fortune is only improving by the day: You can shop your new favorite shirt over at the Taylor Stitch Year-End Sale right now through January 1st, and it’s an opportunity not to be missed as far as upgrading your winter style essentials.
Especially in a rich Cardinal Check color like the option seen at the top of the page, the Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt is a downright dependable, stylish, hard-working style steal, the kind every guy can use in his wardrobe this season. It’s assuredly a cold-weather upgrade compared to your everyday Oxford shirt (although don’t sleep on the utility of that style this season, either).
Yet when the polar vortex rolls through town, it’s the Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt you’ll want to have at the ready — either as a cozy, comfortable shirt to wear in front of the fire or to work from home, or as a mid-layer when duty calls in the great outdoors.
Helpfully, the Taylor Stitch Year-End Sale makes this rugged, dependable shirt an even bigger deal, literally: That end-of-year discount drops it down below $90, a solid bargain compared to a full-sale price of $128 for the Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt. It’s the details that really make the difference though, be it the handsome, warm yet supple custom organic cotton twill fabric or the stylish, distinctive pattern.
For good measure, the tail on the Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt is shorter, making it an easy shirt to wear untucked through casual winter style scenarios (preferably with a pair of stylish Taylor Stitch jeans). Think of it like a well-designed, well-considered fashion upgrade for the season ahead — and it’s all the better that it’s on sale this very instant. You know where to shop and save today.
I always say that it pays to have brands you can trust in your rotation of the best men’s style essentials, brands that don’t miss a beat when moving from season to season. As it turns out, Billy Reid is one of those brands, a reliable company that delivers some of the coolest menswear as dreamed up by one of the country’s best menswear designers. And as luck would have it, the Billy Reid New Arrivals section is packed with some of the best winter gear for guys, including one of the best shirt jackets for men. Billy Reid already has you outfitted for those occasions when things turn more formal, including a selection of the best men’s shirts for all occasions.
And I’m more than willing to bet you also know Billy Reid from the frankly incredible, widely coveted and fast-selling Billy Reid Bond Peacoat, which just so happens to be the type of heirloom piece you’d do well to buy now and wear often. But let’s talk more about the Billy Reid Theo Shirt Jacket, one of the best men’s shirt jackets to wear when situations toe the line between rugged and refined.
Where does the magic come from with the Billy Reid Theo Shirt Jacket? It starts with the warm and winter-friendly wool-blend exterior, reinforced with nylon and polyester for durability and stretch. It’s then filled with an insulating poly fill made with recycled polyester for an extra shot of sustainability. So, the Billy Reid Theo Shirt Jacket delivers when it comes to comfort and performance. But it’s the small details where Billy Reid elevates things even further. Whereas more technical shirt jackets might use a cheaper style of button, here, the Billy Reid Theo Shirt Jacket uses antique brass hardware and a handsome leather locker loop, the sort of touch you can use to display this handsome and functional shirt jacket on a coat rack rather than tossed in the laundry room.
The perfect winter jacket for the holidays and beyond.
OK, who’s ready for another winter Friday? The last winter Friday before Christmas, at that! Still wondering what gifts to buy for the stylish guy on your list? I’ve got you covered. And today’s Friday Read is going to take care of business quite nicely, too — you’ll find out about a new Taylor Stitch jacket, gifts for the whiskey lover, and plenty more. Of course, we’d be remiss not to mention one of the best winter jackets as shown above, a durable and weather-ready Faherty Brand puffer jacket (the Polar Fjord Puffer, to be exact), that’s worth investing in as you dress for the polar vortex (or wherever your holiday takes you). I won’t exactly be needing a rugged winter parka, however — this weekend, I’m hitting the road to sunny Florida yet again for a relaxing week of Christmas vacation! I was just in Florida for a lovely and relaxing Thanksgiving (as seen on my Instagram), and I’m very excited to get back! It’s always a wonderful time in Fort Myers, from trying out new and old breweries (Point Ybel Brewing is a perennial favorite) to taking in fun holiday activities like checking out the illustrious grounds of the Edison Ford Winter Estates, done up with excellent holiday decor. For now though, I’ve got my holiday party to enjoy at my day job, and a bit of a search for last-minute holiday gifts to undertake this weekend. Get your own weekend started the right way with another edition of the Friday Read — cheers to the season!
As we said above, ’tis the season to layer up in style with one of the best new men’s jackets for your closet — in this case, we’re talking about a handsome bomber jacket from Taylor Stitch, as covered by yours truly at GearMoose. It’s both elegant and rugged at the same time — it’s the perfect holiday layer, in short. Heck, it could even be a reliable suggestion if you’re still searching for what to wear to your holiday party.
Just when you thought the good folks at Florsheim couldn’t churn out men’s shoes that were any more essential or stylish, they drop the Florsheim Fuel Reflect Capsule, a new, ultra-shiny and sleek set of dress shoes with some futuristic iridescent design touches. Perfect for, again, that last-minute holiday party. I covered it for The Manual, so check it out if you’re in need of some stylish dress shoes.
Now, we’ll turn back to GearMoose for another crucial holiday gift suggestion. I didn’t pen this particular piece, but that doesn’t mean I’m any less enthralled by this roundup of the best gifts for whiskey lovers — perfect to gift to the guy who loves a great Old Fashioned.
Lastly, it’s been a momentous year for music – favorite albums of mine included two ethereal releases from Brooklyn indie rockers Big Thief (that’d be both “Two Hands” and “U.F.O.F.”), as well as the excellent “Remind Me Tomorrow” by the lovely Sharon Van Etten. Of course, it goes without saying that “I Am Easy To Find” by The National is an all-time favorite, too. That being said, it’s always fun to read about the best albums of 2019 from a different perspective — in this case, Stereogum has put together a list of the top 50 albums of 2019, and it’s certainly worth your time.
