#OOTD: How to Wear an Overshirt For Fall

It’s been a busy few weeks when it comes to fall style essentials and surveying the seasonal landscape here at The Style Guide. You might have even noticed a few posts in our new Tuesday Steal series replacing the traditional Tuesday #OOTD slot. But we’re back at it today with a new ensemble, and not a moment too soon for early fall. Let’s get to business. How to wear an overshirt for fall really does start with one of the best men’s overshirts, and the fact that it’s coming at you by way of Flint and Tinder is absolutely a huge bonus. It’s also accented by another stone-cold style essential, the kind of layer you won’t want to leave home without, and that’s one of the best men’s henleys for fall.

Today’s #OOTD shows you how to wear it

Now is the time to really let the building blocks of your seasonal wardrobe shine, and that’s where today’s #OOTD comes in. Gone are the days (hopefully) of sweating it out this summer and trying to figure out, say, how to wear chinos in the heat. No sir, fall brings with it some of the best times of the year for layering and for rugged adventure (even if said adventure simply involves a brewery tour and some cold, fresh beer). And of course, that means this look is filled with rich seasonal colors (think faded brown, tan and olive). But it all comes down to the gear itself. I think that you’ll quickly find the Flint and Tinder CPO Shirt Jacket delivers on everything you need in a stylish shirt jacket in this transitional time of year, from the lightweight construction to the durable and functional styling potential. If you’ve been stowing away your “shacket” through the hot summer months, it’s time to let it back out into the open, just in time for the best season in menswear. Let’s get back in the saddle with today’s #OOTD, shall we?

  • The Overshirt: Flint and Tinder CPO Shirt Jacket, $148 — This versatile overshirt, one of the best overshirts for men, is a study in durability and wear-anywhere style potential. It’s made with a blend of cotton and spandex for comfort and stretch in spades.
  • The Henley: Buck Mason Pima Curved Hem Henley, $55 — This won’t be the last time we talk about one of the best men’s henleys for fall. This one is just lightweight enough to layer up comfortably on breezy fall days.
  • The Rugged Fall Pants: Filson Dry Tin 5-Pocket Pants, $135 — You can wear these rugged work pants just about anywhere, from the trail to a distillery or at home around a fire pit. Filson has long delivered the goods, and they continue to do so here.
  • The Boots: Rhodes Footwear Bozeman Boots, $225 — Complete with a well-built moc toe, rich leather and a comfortable-yet-durable wedge sole, these classic moc toe boots are ready for anything this fall.
  • The Watch: Shinola Runwell Automatic Watch, $1,095 — What’s not to love about this handsome, heritage-worthy leather watch? It’s more suited for weekend outings than rough-and-tumble wear, but you’ll be able to get plenty of use out of it this season.
  • The Hat: Howler Brothers Camp Howler Snapback, $35 — A classic ballcap is the only way to top off this outfit, especially one with a distinctive, retro logo. Throw it on at a moment’s notice to get out the door and hit the road.
  • The Wallet: Satchel & Page Slim Bifold, $70 — Could your everyday carry use a refresh? This elegant, hard-wearing leather wallet for men is just what the doctor ordered. It’ll break in beautifully with everyday use this season.
  • The Everyday Carry: Satchel & Page Slim Mailbag, $475 — No matter what you’ve got to haul (your headphones and a book or laptop, perhaps?), this remarkably stylish leather messenger bag is going to serve you well for years to come.

If you ask me, I’d say this #OOTD does just about everything you could ask of it this season. It’s got versatility and multiple styling options available by way of the two top layers, like a stylish shirt jacket and one of the best men’s henleys for fall. You can wear the henley on its own and keep the shirt jacket handy in your extremely cool, stylish leather messenger bag, for example. And it’s all helped along by the perfect blend of form and function via Filson’s rugged work pants, which can be worn to do actual work as easily as they can be worn to grab fall weekend beers. As I always say, no fall ensemble is complete without the right pair of boots, like the classic moc toe boots shown above from my friends at Huckberry. It doesn’t get any better than boots that can be broken in over time, and the same can be said for your other EDC essentials, like your newfound, supremely stylish leather wallet for men, courtesy of Satchel & Page. Invest in the best and reap the rewards this fall. I’m also of the opinion that you’ve got to keep your accessories on point, and that means finishing this outfit off with the right combination of high and low: An investment-level leather watch, not to mention an eye-catching ballcap. You’re ready for anything between those two fan favorites. Where will this #OOTD take you? Be sure to let me know in the comments below. Stay stylish this fall! 

 

The Thursday Buy: Get this Flint and Tinder Henley Sweatshirt for Early Fall Layering

What’s a guy to do when he wants one of the best layers for early fall, for those times when it’s not quite chilly enough to throw on an insulated jacket, but it’s too cold to rock your favorite T-shirt solo? That’s easy: Turn to a hybrid layer that represents the best of both worlds: Something like the Flint and Tinder Henley Sweatshirt. It’s got plenty going for it, starting with the fact that it hails from the same company that makes the famed Flint and Tinder Waxed Trucker Jacket, as surefire a fall style classic as you’re apt to find these days. Better still, it’s got the warmth of a sweatshirt and the rugged good looks of a henley, to boot. And on top of that, it’s on sale at Huckberry right now for under $64. That’s marked down from $98, so you’re getting quite the nice discount on one of your new favorite sweaters for fall — or is it a henley?

The best of both worlds, with rugged style in spades

The Flint and Tinder Henley Sweatshirt checks all the right boxes if it’s rugged, casual style you seek. It’s practically made to be thrown on in laidback weekend situations, especially with vinyl spinning and hot coffee in hand. It’s really the construction that makes the Flint and Tinder Henley Sweatshirt stand out handsomely, as with most all things Flint and Tinder. It starts with super-soft, substantial-but-not-too-heavy French Terry cotton fabric, translated into a henley style with that three-button placket.

You can wear it like a normal henley, sure, but the Flint and Tinder Henley Sweatshirt is made to be worn over a super-soft long-sleeve tee with faded stretch denim for the ultimate in weekend-ready comfort. It also looks good enough to be worn atop, say, a chambray shirt with stretch chinos back at the office on a relaxed fall Friday, and again, that’s the beauty of the versatility you get with the Flint and Tinder Henley Sweatshirt. USA-made construction and tough rubber buttons make this henley sweatshirt a serious keeper, despite the on-sale price.

It’s only available in Washed Navy right now, but that color should prove a natural pairing with everything from burgundy corduroys to tan work pants (no matter how little work you have on your weekend agenda aside from visiting a new brewery). Because it’s made by Flint and Tinder, consider that a bit of another guarantee of quality and long-lasting style. Simply put, the Flint and Tinder Henley Sweatshirt looks darn good, wears well with all of your favorite fall style staples, and keeps on trucking day after day, all season long.

See Now, Buy Now: The Flint and Tinder Indigo Waffle Trucker is the Best Transitional Jacket to Buy Now

You’re not alone if you feel like it’s a touch too early to be talking about early fall style essentials — aren’t we still smack-dab in the middle of August and the dog days of summer, after all? We sure are, but before you know it (certainly within a month), you might start to feel a slight chill in the air, and that’s why you need to stock up early on one of the best men’s transitional jackets. Who better to answer the call than Huckberry, makers of the famous, much-loved and fast-selling Flint and Tinder Trucker Jacket? They’ve got a few tricks up their sleeves though, via a new take on the rugged Flint and Tinder Waxed Trucker: The change-up in question comes courtesy of the Flint and Tinder Indigo Waffle Trucker, a new variation that toes the line between late summer breezes and heavy-duty fall and winter layering.

That it does so in perfectly handsome, rugged fashion is a huge bonus, and it only gets better from there. It’s one of the best men’s trucker jackets for that very reason: You can wear it just about anywhere, from one last summer getaway to the mountains or downtown to get coffee on a dewy morning. The 100 percent cotton waffle fabric is a textured, breathable weave, moreso than the burlier, heavier Flint and Tinder Trucker Jacket (which is also lined in cotton flannel). To get right to the point, the Flint and Tinder Indigo Waffle Trucker bridges the gap quite nicely between the two

And because it’s indigo dyed, as the name so aptly calls out, it’s going to break in over time like your favorite pair of indigo jeans (coincidentally, another style staple you could also pick up at Huckberry). Let’s talk details, too – the Flint and Tinder Indigo Waffle Trucker has proper details to go along with the best of ’em. Those details include chambray-lined pockets and a chambray-lined back yoke. And as ever, custom F&T buttons separate the rugged and dependable Flint and Tinder Indigo Waffle Trucker from other jackets in your closet. Come early fall, you’ll be glad you picked this jacket up. But once it shows up at your door, you’ll want to break it in right away.

The Thursday Buy: You Need the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants in Your Daily Wardrobe

Folks, when the going gets tough, when it feels to hot to wear pants, when you feel like your summer wardrobe is on the fritz, well, that’s when you need a pair of the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants. I’d be willing to bet that if you read this site on the regular, you don’t need me to sing the praises of Flint and Tinder, the excellent in-house brand dreamed up by the fine folks at San Francisco-based Huckberry. They’ve long been one of my favorite retailers, and indeed, one of the best places to buy menswear online, and that only becomes more clear by the day. So, that’s a great place to start if you’re thinking about buying the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants — and yes, I mean right now, as hot as it might be. That’s because the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants aren’t your average pair of chinos. They’re certainly part of any well-regarded list of the best shopping picks at Huckberry, but it goes beyond that.

We’ve certainly talked in the past about what makes these some of my favorite pants, but consider this a refresher – and again, even in the summer heat. The remarkable Flint and Tinder 365 Pants are a Huckberry best-seller for good reason, starting with the fact that they’re built as tough as jeans, with the styling potential of chinos. It’s the five-pocket design and yet polished build that stands apart from the pack. That versatility makes them easily wearable in situations where it’s too casual for jeans, but you still want to feel comfortable (and look great). Heck, go ahead and buy two pairs for $175 then thank me later.

SHOP: The Flint and Tinder 365 Pants

Particularly in the summer months, I’m a huge fan of the Salt colorway, which sits nicely at the intersection of off-white and bright white (which might be a bit too fashion-forward based on the situation. Beyond that nice and summer-ready option, they come in a dozen colors, each as wearable as the next with other Flint and Tinder essentials. You’ve also got your pick between Slim, Straight and Tapered fits. I’ve tried out both the Slim and Straight fits, and even the Straight fit is nicely cut, and not overly baggy.

The 8oz. cotton blend fabric, with just a hint of stretch, is also breezy enough for summer, but dependable enough for fall and winter. That makes them a true pair of four-season men’s pants, a rarity for under $100. Remember though, you can buy two pairs for $175 and save a bit of extra cash. Plus, the versatile design pairs well with everything from a Flint and Tinder T-shirt (right now) to a chambray shirt layered over your favorite henley (in the fall and winter). If you haven’t yet tried out the Flint and Tinder 365 Pants, consider this the perfect time to take the plunge. You’ll stay polished and stylish, even in the heat — I guarantee it. If you’ve tried out some of these pants, let me know in the comments. Stay stylish!

#OOTD: The Best Way to Wear Shorts for Men This Summer

It’s time to let your legs get some sun, folks, courtesy of the best shorts for men this season. Past #OOTD entries have gone a bit more rugged, but no less casual and cool, like how to wear chukka boots this summer. Others have even shown you how to wear lightweight chinos — as in, this guide on how to wear a henley for men. But with all that being said, we’re lightening things up and going even more casual and laidback than that. Consider this the first of many posts on how to wear shorts for men this summer — and not just any shorts, but the best men’s shorts. They’re comin’ at ya, naturally, from Huckberry. Would you expect anything else? I certainly hope not. We’re wearing ’em here (or rather, I’m recommending that you wear these shorts this way in the future) with  other rugged, easygoing basics.

That makes this the kind of #OOTD fit for summer’s most lofty pursuits or its most basic, whatever that means for you. To me, it means record shopping and brewery hopping, cold beer in hand all the while (or at least, after I’ve got my records in hand). If you already know what the majority of your summer entails, and if it involves fun in the sun — which I guarantee it does — then my guide on how to wear shorts for summer should prove mighty handy. I won’t keep you here any longer, though. All the shopping tips you need for the best men’s shorts can be found below.

Best way to wear shorts for men

  • The Shorts: Flint and Tinder 365 Shorts, $64 — I’ve talked plenty about the Flint and Tinder 365 Shorts, which come in both a 7-inch and a 9-inch inseam (think longer if you’re taller). Fact of the matter is, they’re the best shorts for men if you want effective, quality style.
  • The Shirt: Wellen Hemp-Cotton Buttondown, $68 — Get yourself one of the most stylish sustainable shirts out there, with a neat pattern and breezy, eco-conscious fabric.

  • The Sunglasses: Maui Jim Cruzem Sunglasses, $250 — How about these shades? The best pair of sunglasses for men are an absolute essential. Don’t leave home without them, to say the very least.
  • The Everyday Carry: Filson Rugged Twill Original Brief, $325 — I can’t help but recommend a rugged Filson bag (one that’s also aptly named!) for your daily adventures this summer, anywhere you happen to go.

Are these tips helpful when it comes to how to wear shorts this summer? The key starts, first and foremost, with finding the best shorts for the occasion — in this case, a pair of shorts like the Flint and Tinder 365 Shorts, in an agreeable inseam and a classic color. They’re an ideal pairing with a piece that’s also an upgrade to your typical tee — one of the most stylish sustainable shirts ought to get the job done for breezy weekend style. Things don’t let up from there, though. Your Taylor Stitch bomber jacket is going to offer up lightweight comfort and necessary protection from the elements, all the while looking just great.

No #OOTD is complete without a pair of the best sneakers for men in the summer months, so your new Taylor Stitch x SeaVees sneakers are primed and ready for the occasion. Add in an heirloom sport watch, one that’s highly splurge-worthy, and you’ve just given this look a major shot in the arm. And while it might have been some time since you’ve worn Maui Jim sunglasses, why not give this ever-reliable brand a try once more? They look great to me, that much I know. Wrap it all up — and get from point A to point B — with a rugged Filson bag, the kind you’ll have for years and years to come. No matter where this #OOTD takes you, it’s going to take you there in style. See you out there, my friends.

Some of the best men’s jeans for spring and summer.

Any list of spring and summer style essentials has to have a pair of the best light wash jeans, right? They’re the proper way to trade out your heavyweight selvage, and a nice in-between when you don’t want to wear your favorite shorts. The pair you’re looking for, the pair you’ve been waiting for and hoping to find, well, that pair is the Flint and Tinder Stretch Selvage Denim, my friends. They’re as reliable as it gets, they’re as stylish as can be, they look great with more casual or more tailored essentials (like your favorite Oxford shirt), and between the light weight and the light wash, they’re the best jeans for spring and summer. Now, if you read the blog on the regular (which I certainly hope you do!), then you know all about Flint and Tinder, the rugged-yet-classic and frequently made-in-America brand from Huckberry.

So, what else makes this pair some of the best jeans for men, period? It comes down to the stretch selvage fabric blend, which blends 13.4oz. denim fabric (heavier selvage can top 15oz. or more) with 4 percent polyester & spandex. That slight amount of stretch is going to help these jeans move and breath easier, crucial on days when you want to wear jeans but don’t want to suffer for your style. The Flint and Tinder Stretch Selvage Denim also feature a true custom gold selvage ID, as shown above — these jeans are the real deal. And it continues to get better, because these jeans are made in the denim hotbed that is Los Angeles. Plus, the hardware is custom to F&T, and the YKK zipper won’t give out on you.

  • The Pants: Mott and Bow Slim Mercer Jeans in Khaki, $118 — These Mott and Bow jeans feature a unique color versus other blue jeans in your rotation, making them a wise pick to shake up your spring style. Possibly the best men’s jeans out there.
  • The Watch: Alsta Nautoscaph Superautomatic, $1,005 — This adventure-ready watch remasters the Richard Dreyfuss watch from Jaws, making it supremely cool and seriously ready for anything spring has in store.
  • The Boots: Nisolo Andres All-Weather Boots, $260 — Spring weather can shift at any time, so you need a pair of the best leather boots for men, the kind that are weather-ready, stylish and ethically made. The Nisolo Andres Boots are here.
  • The Belt: Adelante Shoe Co. Essential Leather Belt, $125 — This stylish leather belt is handcrafted in Guatemala by a fairly paid, skilled artisan, making it the ideal complementary accessory to the rest of this #OOTD.
  • The Everyday Carry: Mission Workshop 500D Drift Tote, $265 — A rugged tote bag made for anything you can dream up, from hauling brewery cans to keeping your laptop safe while you head to an outdoor coffee shop? Sign me up (and just know that this Mission Workshop tote bag is exclusive to Huckberry, my friends).

Who’s got a newfound hankering for an outdoor stroll under some breezy spring sunlight? That sounds like just what the doctor ordered (along with wearing a mask, of course!), and these gear picks are here to help you get where you’re going. It all starts with your new favorite jacket from Huckberry, the kind of pick you can throw on and forget about (until you start receiving plentiful compliments, that is). For the office or for a bit of a polished-yet-casual feel on the weekend, your Mack Weldon Oxford Shirt is going to pull double-duty: We’re talking straightforward, subtle style and functionality.

Plus, you can wear said shirt atop that James Bond-approved T-shirt, unbuttoned, if the weather starts to warm up (Sunspel makes some of the best T-shirts for men in the game, no doubt). Rolling through the rest of this outfit, Mott and Bow jeans in a cool shade of Khaki offer a change of pace from the blue jeans you might normally wear, and a pair of the best leather boots for men seal it all together (literally — they’re waterproof) on your bottom half. If you want to invest a bit in your accessories for spring and well beyond, well, I can think of no better way than by picking up that iconic homage to the Richard Dreyfuss watch from Jaws, ehh? Even your handmade leather belt is a style upgrade that’s out of the ordinary. Of course, this #OOTD wouldn’t mean a thing without a rugged tote bag to haul your laptop, your notebook or other EDC essentials.
