Flint and Tinder Ridge Shell — $188

A durable, tough rain jacket from the folks at Flint and Tinder.

Faherty Brand Slub Cotton Henley — $98

A suitable spring henley — to say the least.

Why yes, we’re recommending that you pick up this stylish henley from a brand that already appeared in this edition of The List. When it comes to quality fabric and construction, you can’t top this rugged henley.

Herschel Supply Co. Novel Duffle — $84.99

A sharp, functional duffle bag for spring travel and daily use.

The start of a new season is all about getting around in functional style — specifically, functional travel style. And luckily for all of us, Herschel Supply Co. comes through with a durable duffle bag that just so happens to look pretty sharp.

Slim, stylish chinos that’ll help you step into spring.

The time is almost upon us to break out your new favorite chinos — if you haven’t yet tried the Flint and Tinder Cool Chinos, well, you’re in luck. They’re one heck of a pair of slim chinos, made with breathabilty and mobililty in mind. Wear them with the Faherty Brand Indigo Corporal Jacket and perhaps a rugged henley for spring style that can’t be topped.

Huckberry Duck Boots — $180

Durable duck boots that offer style and functionality in spades.

To be fair, we’ve previously discussed the stylish durability and versatility of the Huckberry Duck Boots here on the blog, but it’s worth revisiting them as we head into the rainy season. These are some of the best men’s rain boots, and they’ll go anywhere you go, with ease.

WP Standard Boxcar Duffel — $400

A rough-and-tumble leather bag that’ll only get better with age.

Last but certainly not least when it comes to today’s list of the best men’s style essentials, I give you the WP Standard Boxcar Duffel — it’s a stylish leather bag that’s more than deserving of daily use, and it’s one of the best men’s leather bags on the market … I know from my experience with the brand (as you might have seen on my Instagram!).

 

OK, so do you feel more ready for the start of spring now? Have a favorite of the above spring style essentials? I can’t recommend the durability and versatility of the Faherty Brand Indigo Corporal Jacket. Feel free to keep the conversation rolling on Twitter!

Style Pick of the Week: Faherty Brand Luxe Heather Henley

Faherty Brand

The best henley to wear all winter? Perhaps, yes.

We talk often at The Style Guide about the men’s style essentials you can’t live without, like the best henley for winter. And we talk often about Faherty Brand, the West Coast-based brand that channels California cool with style for the modern man. Those two qualities come together in the Faherty Brand Luxe Heather Henley, a premium winter style upgrade that you’re going to want to wear this weekend — and the one after that, and the one after that. The Faherty Brand Luxe Heather Henley is perhaps unlike any henley you’ve worn before, featuring soft 100 percent heathered cotton in a rich navy color — perfect for pairing up with slim tan chinos, a shawl collar cardigan (also from Faherty Brand, perhaps?) and your favorite leather boots.

SHOP: The Faherty Brand Luxe Heather Henley

It can be difficult — read: extremely difficult — to find a henley that works in casual style situations (like a trip to your favorite brewery) as well as in instances that more dressy. Yet, true to its name, the Faherty Brand Luxe Heather Henley should wear just as well with slim faded jeans and a rugged shirt jacket as it does with a navy cotton blazer to the office this winter. The chambray detailing and heather fabric kick things up a notch in terms of premium quality — would you expect anything less from Faherty Brand? Surely not.

Your author’s favorite color of this premium henley.

And there’s another, much more simple reason you should consider picking up the Faherty Brand Luxe Heather Henley — every guy looks great in a henley, plain and simple. The sport-inspired roots of the silhouette, plus the raglan sleeve stitching on this particular henley, lend a rugged appeal to even the most straightforward winter outfits (think a classic chambray shirt and slim corduroy pants). The Faherty Brand Luxe Heather Henley is also available in three easily wearable colors, although the navy option shown above has the most inventory available. In my mind, that makes the Faherty Brand Luxe Heather Henley the perfect pick-up for your next winter weekend outing. It’s also helpful to have a closet stocked full of warm, cozy (yet stylish!) base layers with many a chilly day ahead — this henley is an on-point layering option that looks great even when you step out of your winter parka. In short, I really don’t see any downside to picking up the  Faherty Brand Luxe Heather Henley — what say you? Feel free to let me know your thoughts about this piece on Twitter. Thanks for reading!

A no-frills pair of casual everyday pants that are a nice change of pace from denim to start 2019.

Can you believe we’re on the cusp of 2019? To me, that’s truly wild — and it also means you’d do well to upgrade your men’s style essentials for the new year from places like Faherty Brand. This trusted, West Coast-based brand makes gear for virtually every guy, from cozy winter cardigans to essential everyday pants like the Faherty Brand Stretch Canvas Trousers you see above.The great thing is, the new year is the perfect time to refresh your style — and if that means stepping away from your favorite pair of denim more often in favor of a pair of stylish casual trousers, then Faherty Brand is the way to go. Available in four colors including the handsome British Khaki seen here, the Faherty Brand Stretch Canvas Trousers are a unique way to step out of classic blue denim and into something a bit more rugged & casual — yet just as versatile. That’s because the Faherty Brand Stretch Canvas Trousers wear like jeans, but have the look of a slim pair of tailored khaki pants — the ideal way to step up your business casual (or weekend) style.

A reliably slim fit and pleasing construction make these a winner.

So, why exactly these pants, and why now? That’s easy. We talked before about that mix of rugged durability and versatility — it’s the depths of winter after all, and the Faherty Brand Stretch Canvas Trousers are what the brand calls its heaviest but most mobile pants. That’s great news for you, because you can (and should!) pair up these slim casual trousers with rugged leather boots, a crisp Oxford shirt and a classic shawl collar cardigan for winter style that’s tough to top. If I were you, I’d wear that ensemble to an evening date or weekend brunch. Even better? These stylish casual pants are going to work at the office or on the weekend. The slim cut of the Faherty Brand Stretch Canvas Trousers also makes ’em pleasingly dressy — try them out with a cashmere elbow patch sweater, a classic chambray shirt and brown leather dress shoes for a bit of a refresh to your office style in the new year. It’s a new year, and you need some new pants — now you know the ones to buy.

The ideal outer layer for comfort and functionality as you travel.

If you’re anything like me, maybe you’re hitting the road for winter travel soon (we’ve got Christmas next week, after all!). And maybe you’re wondering how to dress for winter travel? Well, I think I’ve got part of that equation solved for you — The Faherty Brand Atmosphere Jacket belongs on your top half for your next trip. The great thing about gear from Faherty Brand is that it’s at once easygoing yet functional, the perfect type of gear to grab and go as you dash off to the airport or to catch a train (or a bus, or an automobile?). And the Atmosphere Jacket is, helpfully, a two-for-one deal — much like the Faherty Brand Bondi Jacket, as featured recently on the blog. That kind of versatility can’t be topped.

Faherty Brand review

Layer up for winter travel with this Faherty Brand jacket.

That is to say, the Atmosphere Jacket wears like both a shirt and, well, a jacket, from the easy-to-layer fit to the 100 percent nylon construction. It’s a lightweight layer for the airport that’ll also insulate you from winter’s chill outside — that’s a major positive. The Faherty Brand Atmosphere Jacket uses channel quilting for extra warmth, too. In short: Throw on the Faherty Brand Atmosphere Jacket with a crisp white T-shirt and perfectly faded jeans for your next long flight. But Beau, isn’t it acceptable to wear slouchy sweats and a baggy hoodie to travel? Not so fast, my friend.

SHOP: The Faherty Brand Atmosphere Jacket 

No sir, the Faherty Brand Atmosphere Jacket (also available in Black and Navy) is exactly the travel style upgrade you need to make, regardless of where your plans might lead. While others are trying to just catch their connecting flight, wearing a warm & stylish layer like the Atmosphere Jacket might help you take on the day with a bit more polish. It’s as easy as throwing on a great coat — like the Atmosphere Jacket — and then upgrading your bottom half (again, perfectly faded jeans are the way to go). Plus, the Atmosphere Jacket  features custom rubberized Faherty snap buttons and two front chest pockets for durability — and the perfect place to store your everyday carry essentials going through security! Bingo. And on chilly winter mornings when you get to your destination? Throw on the Faherty Brand Atmosphere Jacket and pair it with slim, tailored sweatpants — and maybe the Huckberry Duck Boots — to grab a weekend coffee.

Style Pick of the Week: Faherty Brand Bondi Jacket

 

Faherty Brand

Two seriously cool jackets for the price of one — all from a classic, dependable brand.

Take a good look at the Bondi Jacket from Faherty Brand — then envision yourself wearing it this winter. It’s not all that hard to do, right? After all, Faherty Brand consistently delivers the sort of casual, easygoing-yet-functional staples that every guy needs in his wardrobe, and they do it for nearly every season. Yes, even winter. That’s where the Bondi Jacket comes into play. It’s two jackets in one, with the type of design detailing that only the West Coast purveyors at Faherty Brand can provide — take one look at the cool reversible print, for starters.

It’s pretty plain to see that the Bondi Jacket is unlike any other winter style essential you’ve got in your wardrobe, and while I can’t advise that you wear this thing into the polar vortex, it’s certainly worthy keeping under consideration as another layer (to say the least). Brushed cotton blanket fabric makes up the printed interior, while a durable diamond-quilted chambray holds down the fort on the other side — again, two jackets that’ll layer with ease over everything from a classic white T-shirt to a rugged henley. The beauty of the Bondi Jacket? You can then layer it underneath a heavier winter parka for maximum protection on the streets — without sacrifing style once you head indoors. It’s that kind of versatility that Faherty Brand provides in spades — again, they’re not just a warm-weather brand.

A closer look at the reverse side of this durable shirt jacket.

And then, there’s the unique pattern on the Faherty Brand Bondi Jacket (as seen above). The Redwood Bluff design is both subtly stylish and just a bit bold, made to layer over a classic chambray shirt while offering a nice bit of contrast — think ’70s surfer cool without going too far over the top. This is a shirt jacket you should feel comfortable wearing with rugged chore pants and tough leather boots, too. Feel like going a little more low-key? The reverse-side chambray is a little more understated, to the point where you could team up the Faherty Brand Bondi Jacket with slim black jeans, a classic Oxford shirt and a warm beanie cap for winter’s nightcap at a (heated) outdoor rooftop. To be sure, that’s a specific style scenario … but hey, ’tis the season. If at first you’re wary of injecting that much color and pattern into your wardrobe, know that the tailored fit and easy-to-layer potential of the Faherty Brand Bondi Jacket make it a solid winner, especially for the price. That’s all you need this winter.

How would you layer the Faherty Brand Bondi Jacket? Are you on board with wearing a shirt jacket for winter?

This rugged cardigan is cozy, classic and ready to layer.

Faherty Brand seemingly can do no wrong when it comes to crafting beloved styles made from premium fabric — all with easygoing wearability & versatility in mind. In short, Faherty Brand makes the gear you need for your next holiday party or casual winter weekend. That sounds like high praise, and it is, but this is one brand that talks the talk and walks the walk. What’s the key here? To me, it really comes down to pieces like the   part of the brand’s Holiday Collection and among a host of stylish new arrivals worth your time. Now if you read the ol’ blog fairly regularly, you might recognize warm-weather staples like the Faherty Brand Bliss Henley, but again, Faherty Brand is a brand that goes beyond its West Coast roots to craft some seriously rugged, hard-wearing gear — again, including the cozy Marled Cotton Cardigan shown above.

SHOP: The Holiday Collection from Faherty Brand

Neat texture and a neutral color allow holiday-centric shirts to pop with ease.

You need a cardigan like this one in your winter layering arsenal for more than just a couple reasons. A rugged shawl cardigan, like a classic henley, adds visual interest and warmth to even the most simple of outfits, and it also gives you a bit of masculine style — there’s a reason style luminaries like Steve McQueen and Daniel Craig champion the classic shawl cardigan. It’s also the perfect season to add an extra layer of cozy comfort — this cardigan from Faherty Brand is made from marled cotton, making it easy to layer over a chambray shirt or a classic flannel shirt. Touches like horn buttons upgrade the  Marled Cotton Cardigan from good to great, as well. It’s the type of timeless style you’re going to want to wear to your next holiday gathering or simply a  casual evening at home (ideally, with a glass of whiskey in hand and some cozy slippers on — like thIs #OOTD).  But the one thing to remember? Just because a brand is known for warm weather-friendly staples doesn’t mean they can’t make a heck of a rugged shawl cardigan for winter — believe it.
