Grayers is the Vintage Menswear Brand You Need To Check Out - Gear For Life

Believe it or not, sometimes, finding the best deals on the best menswear just involves a one-stop shop of sorts. And today, that one-stop shop for the best fall menswear (and the best gear for this season and beyond) comes from Grayers. Let’s get more specific, though: It’s the Grayers Last Call section that’s got all the gear you need right now, from easy-to-layer shirting to lightweight sweaters, shawl cardigans, cotton blazers and plenty more. The best part? Most of these Grayers men’s style picks are now marked down under $100. It’s nearly as easy as closing your eyes, moving your mouse around the page and then determining if you like what you see. Alright, so perhaps that’s a bit dramatic, but if you haven’t checked out the modern-meets-prep takes on menswear as delivered by Texas-based Grayers, it’s worth a look.

Beyond that, a selection of goods like the Grayers Last Call section is actually a great place to find deals on some out-of-season items, be it stylish chino shorts or printed short-sleeve shirts. That way, when it comes time to plan out that tropical getaway this winter, you’ve already got some fresh gear close at hand. Now make no mistake: Since plenty of these deals are so stellar, sizes are moving quickly. It’s understandable: When some of the best fall style essentials (and spring and summer essentials for that matter) go on sale, you’d do very well to snap up these discounts right now. If you like what you end up finding, let me know on Twitter. Happy shopping!

It’s rare to find a brand that practices what it preaches as much as Howler Brothers. The Austin, Texas-based brand, found at retailers like Huckberry as well as online at its own store and in Austin at its own outpost, is all about seizing the spirit of adventure. It’s made all the better by the best deals on menswear in the Howler Brothers Last Chance section, the reason we’re here for today’s Sunday Sale. What makes this brand so special? Reader, I’m glad you asked. So named for howler monkeys that founders Chase Heard and Andy Stepanian encountered during a jungle adventure in Costa Rica, the brand is about blending form, function and rugged appeal. They mix technical fabrics — suited for fun on water and back on land — with silhouettes like puffer jackets, shirt jackets, short-sleeve shirts and more. It’s vibrant, it’s Southwest-inspired and yet, Howler Brothers menswear works just about anywhere there’s a good time to be had and stylish memories to be made.

In fact, the Fall 2021 Howler Brothers Collection — packed with technical shirts, cozy hoodies, colorful short-sleeve shirts and much more — is about seizing the day and taking on whatever life throws at you, in style (naturally). And yet, it’s the fast-selling Howler Brothers Last Chance section that’s particularly of interest (at least to this writer). Right now is actually a great time to get discounts on last season’s menswear and much more, believe it or not, be it the rugged Howler Brothers Harker’s Flannel or the go-anywhere Howler Brothers Stockman Stretch Snapshirt. Helpfully, prices tend to drop well below $50 or $60, and well below that, throughout the technically minded, rugged-but-modern Howler Brothers Last Chance section.

It’s a trip perfectly timed with fall weather and fall whiskey, and I’m ever so grateful for the invite. Of course, I’ll be staying busy in the days before and after writing for sites like Fatherly and AskMen, so check out my bylines there, too. In the meantime, here are some top weekend gear picks from yours truly to keep the season rolling in fine fashion.

  • If you’ve been searching for some of the best adventure sunglasses, the type of sunglasses you can wear on the trail or on a run, and then to a brewery (to name but a few fall pursuits), then Nathan Sports has you covered. The Nathan Sunrise Sunglasses retail for just $50, blend stylish elements like a classic tortoise finish with polarized lenses, and look great for work or play. Don’t sleep on these durable outdoor sunglasses for the season ahead, my friends.
  • Speaking of my work at Fatherly, here’s a story I certainly feel is worth your hard-earned time and cash. The cult favorite basics brand Entireworld, known for its colorful sweats and T-shirts and founded by Scott Sternberg of Band Of Outsiders, is sadly going out of business. Fear not, because you can still score some stellar deals on the best basics, and I wrote all about the best on-sale clothing at Entireworld right now. Happy shopping, folks.
  • The headline says it all in today’s post, but right now truly is the season to step out in some transitional footwear, also known as the best high-top sneakers (in my opinion). Where can you find said sneakers? Why, via my latest roundup for The Manual. Time to step out in style, my friends.

I’ll let you cruise on into the weekend right now with those helpful style tips and shopping picks top of mind, but before I let you go, allow me to make one more recommendation: The best Chelsea boots from Nisolo are going to go a long way towards getting you around town in sustainable style.
