Work From Home Beer Glass (2) - Cool Material

Cheers to Sunday, and cheers to a standout sale from Cool Material.

My friends, perhaps over the years, you’ve become as obsessed with Cool Material as I have. I’ve loved reading the Cool Material site over the years, but it’s the Cool Material Shop that I’ve really dug into lately. Maybe it’s a result of having more time at home to read and shop, maybe it’s the result of looking into, quite literallly, cool design items for men that I can add to my humble abode in Brooklyn … either way, Cool Material does it right. They’ve got everything from cool pocket knives to the best men’s watch under $100, and then some. And you know what’s even, well, cooler?

The ongoing Cool Material Sale features some of the best gear for men, at insanely great prices. It’s a fitting addition to our ongoing Sunday Sale series, is it not? Without further ado, shop the 10 best picks from the Cool Material Sale right here (starting with that cool beer glass shown above). Cheers, folks!

MWC G10 Military Watch — $79.16

G10 Military Watch

A tough, affordable military watch to wear every day.

Claude Dozorme Laguiole Liner Lock Pocket Knife — $78

Laguiole Liner Lock Pocket Knife

A durable, well-crafted pocket knife for summer, fall and beyond.

This durable pocket knife has plenty of heritage and history, seeing as it’s a modern take on the 1920s French Laguiole knife, but better, sleeker and smoother. The best pocket knife for adventures out there the rest of summer into fall.

Hame Design Ltd. Five-Peg Coat Hook — $89

Five-Peg Coat Hook - Cool Material

The perfect way to hang your array of stylish coats and jackets.

Marked down from $110, it turns out there IS such a thing as a stylish way to hang coats at your home. Perhaps spending so much time at home has caused you to organize your wardrobe and your living space — this Hame Design Ltd. coat hanger is a steal for the price.

Bevin Bells Brass Boxing Bell — $136

Brass Boxing Bell - Cool Material

A neat addition to your home, office, living room … you name it.

Now listen, do you really¬†need¬†this seriously cool brass boxing bell? Well, “need” is up for debate, but it’s also subjective. If you liked the look of the vintage-style leather football we mentioned earlier, consider getting this vintage-style brass boxing bell to go with it.

MWC 1960s Vietnam Military Watch — $52.76¬†

1960s US Vietnam Military Watch

The best bang for your buck when it comes to an affordable men’s watch, that much is true.

This Vietnam military watch is about as cool and rugged as it gets for a watch under $60. Built to be more durable than original Vietnam timepieces, this 36mm watch is wearable in the great outdoors and back at home, preferably as you sip from your new whiskey glasses.

When it comes to a men’s gear sale, it’s always tough to sift through and sort out favorites, right? The thing with the never-not-excellent Cool Material Sale is that it’s really got something for everyone, be it a Vietnam military watch, some cool beer glasses or, better even still, neat home decor items like a vintage-style brass boxing bell. I can’t say enough good things about the awesome men’s gear being sold by Cool Material, and perhaps you feel the same way. After shopping today’s sale, I hope you do. Be sure to let me know on Twitter if you end up picking anything up. Happy shopping!





The Friday Read: Last-Minute Father’s Day Gifts, Style Girlfriend and Taylor Stitch

We’re here on the cusp of another weekend — and the start of another Friday Read — here at ye olde Style Guide. Can you believe June is flying by? And we’ve got a big weekend coming up, too — it’s Father’s Day, after all! But more on that in a bit. It’s certainly¬†been a momentous summer here already, what with my weekend trip to see The Killers in New Jersey, preceded by a joyous weekend of live music at Governors Ball 2017 and then a Memorial Day weekend trip to Florida before that.

And if you can believe it, I’m on the road yet again this weekend — my travels are taking me South to lovely (and sweltering) Charleston for a family wedding. I’ll of course be doing my best to dress in style for a summer wedding — that means wearable, breathable staples like a classic navy blazer and stylish leather loafers, for starters. In addition to getting dolled up for the occasion, I’m also looking forward to catching up with family and spending some quality time with my own dad. On that front, I do hope your Father’s Day shopping is going (or went) smoothly — and if you’re in need of some last-minute Father’s Day gifts, I’d highly suggest you check out the gift guide we pulled together last week. And if you’re still in search of a few other ideas? I’ve assembled my favorite quick #menswear picks below. Enjoy the weekend, enjoy tomorrow’s Style Pick of the Week and enjoy Father’s Day! I’ll be recapping my trip to Charleston on Monday, and you can follow along on Instagram the whole way through.


As I said above, time is ticking away very quickly indeed to buy that great Father’s Day gift — right? If you’ve got a dad who loves either stylish sneakers or the finer things in life (a handsome pen, anyone?), shop these quick hits below.

    • From CrossPens: The Peerless TrackR Quartz Blue Ballpoint Pen¬†is a smooth-writing, sharp-looking pen that’ll never get lost, thanks to its technologically savvy tracking capability.
    • From Filson: Father’s Day Gift GuideWhile the brand excels at making many types of rugged, durable and hard-wearing gear, I’m a big fan of several picks within the brand’s , geared toward an outdoors-loving dad.
    • From TOMS: Didn’t think TOMS could make something fit for the sneaker-loving dad? Think again, because the ¬†TOMS Del Rey Sneaker¬†features a simple, wearable silhouette that your dad might — no, will — enjoy pairing with stylish light wash denim this summer.

  • Does it feel too early to be thinking about rugged style for fall? The thermostat might¬†read full-on summer¬†in your neck of the woods, but Taylor Stitch knows that it’ll be time to crunch leaves underfoot and head out on weekend coffee dates galore before you know it. That’s why you should certainly look into ordering the Taylor Stitch Chore Jacket from the¬†Taylor Stitch¬†Good Acre Collection — I covered it recently for GearMoose, and it’s very worthy of your time.


  • In the way of other Father’s Day gifts, if you find yourself in the Los Angeles area, you’d do well to stop by the Sportie LA shop — the shop has teamed up with “Cars 3” to showcase and sell a series of collaborative merchandise from Style Guide favorites like Richer Poorer. The colors and styles are inspired by the film itself, making it potentially perfect for a little family outing (and if you go, you’ll find the shop at 7763 Melrose Ave. in Los Angeles).
  • And before we let you go for the weekend, I’m going to remind you one last time about¬†two stylish shopping hints for ya. Namely, we’re mixing menswear, home goods and accessories in my Style Guide Father’s Day gift guide¬†— it’ll help tremendously if you haven’t given it a read! Lastly, the great team at Style Girlfriend — a site you should definitely be reading — tells you via Cool Material exactly what your girlfriend wants you to wear. Helpful tips, indeed!

That’ll round out this week’s take on the Friday Read — join us again tomorrow¬†for a healthy weekend helping of #menswear, and catch my full travel style recap forthcoming on Monday.

Thanks for reading!
