Folks, we’re back in business with a new #OOTD that covers a prime question this time of year. We talked last week about what to wear for Thanksgiving this season, so let’s stick with that theme right now, as we dive into what to wear for a casual holiday weekend this year. When I talk about the holidays, I mean, of course, the imminent Thanksgiving weekend and of course, the rest of these next weeks to come. Whether you hit the road wearing one of the best shirts for fall travel or whether you keep it laidback and socially distanced at home via Zoom, this #OOTD is the right way to go (trust me on that). And how exactly are you going to do that? Allow me, because it’ll get all the easier (and more laidback, and comfortable) when you wear one of the best men’s cardigans from Buck Mason — more on that below, but consider the rugged shawl cardigan your best friend when you want to look put-together and yet casual and cool all the same. Elsewhere, some exceedingly comfortable lounge pants are the right style move to keep it even more easygoing, and, well, you’ll just have to scroll through for the rest of this #OOTD below.

#OOTD: This Is How to Wear a Chambray Shirt Right Now

There are times when a guy’s gotta do what a guy’s gotta do — be it picking up to-go beers or freshly ground coffee from your local shop, loading up the car for a day trip upstate or hanging out and grilling this summer … for all those times, you need the best men’s style essentials. Gear that’s not going to let you down, gear that’s going to look great … no matter what. Enter today’s #OOTD covering the best chambray shirt — and how to wear it. We’ll dive into what exactly makes one of the best chambray shirts for men (Hint: It’s gotta be from Buck Mason), plus the best accessories to go alongside it. Now, I know what you’re (maybe) thinking. “A chambray shirt?? In the middle of August? The horror!” … OK, I’m kidding. But if ever you were skeptical about trying out a chambray shirt, rest assured that the Buck Mason chambray shirt in question today is lightweight, easy to layer and plenty stylish all the way through (it helps that we’ll layer it over one of your favorite T-shirts for breezy seasonal style). And if you’re the type of guy who simply can’t put away his selvedge denim, I’ve got just the solution for you: A pair of lightweight stretch selvedge jeans from none other than Todd Snyder. Of course, it’ll get all the better thanks to the best chukka boots, too. But, I don’t want to spoil the look for you. Keep scrolling to check out the full #OOTD, then chime in on Twitter if you plan to pick up any of these rugged summer gear picks. Onward, folks!

A cool chambray shirt worn an even cooler way. Get into it. folks.

Hopefully, you’ve got a few more ideas on how to wear a chambray shirt this summer. The key here involves layering it up the right way, and accessorizing it with the best men’s gear for warm weather. Luckily, Buck Mason makes it easy to do that successfully — this is quite simply one of the best men’s chambray shirts I’ve seen, and I think you’ll feel the same way. You’ve got on-point summer style aplenty here thanks to the best white T-shirt for guys, to go along with stylish stretch selvedge jeans from one of your favorite menswear designers (or at least, one of my favorites!). The look gets all the better thanks to rugged chukka boots from Red Wing Heritage — which also happen to be surprisingly lightweight — and then it’s all finished off in fine form with a vintage-inspired watch from the good folks at Timex. How can it get better? That’s easy, folks. A stylish brown leather belt from Billykirk keeps your black selvedge jeans in place and looks great doing it, while a pair of the most affordable sunglasses for men belongs on your face for the rest of summer. Last but not least, one of the coolest growlers for beer helps you transport your favorite beer and keep it cold for hours of summer enjoyment. It’s all about casual, rugged style, and I don’t think it can get any better than, well, right now. But again, it all starts with one of the best men’s chambray shirts — choose wisely, shop accordingly, then get out there this summer.

Standout details to improve your spring and summer style.

This Buck Mason denim shirt is available in a number of cool, perfectly faded washes, but I love the Medium Wash Denim Shirt as shown here. You can rock it buttoned or unbuttoned atop a classic white T-shirt just as readily as you can layer it over a Buck Mason henley (seriously, this brand does it all), and then on your lower half, you can rock everything from edgy, slim black jeans to classic tan chinos. Made from 100 percent indigo-dyed cotton, this is a rugged denim shirt that’s going to get better and better the more you wear it this spring and summer. Heck, in a pinch, you can even throw this shirt on underneath a lightweight navy cotton blazer for conference call-friendly style. The fit is tailored but not overly tight, the construction is next-level, and the price ($105 at Buck Mason) makes this one of the best shirts for men to buy right now. Like, right now.
