From A-to-Z (OK, well, not quite), here’s how to shop this week and this month.

My Favorite Huckberry Gear Picks This Month

Forty Five Textured Tee — $35 OR 3 for $95

The best men’s T-shirts on the market, as I’ve said in the past on the blog(and as shown at the top of the page), come from Huckberry’s own Forty Five. This textured T-shirt (or a bundle of three) needs a prime spot in your summer wardrobe for each and every day.

Huckberry x Timex “Cola” Sport Watch — $189

Now, if you’ve read the blog, you know all about this incredible Huckberry x Timex Cola Watch. If not, I’d encourage you to snap up one of the best men’s watches under $200 right now, then wear it all summer with these picks.

Flint and Tinder Chambray Snap Shirt — $78

The Huckberry new arrivals section is always to be trusted and shopped week after week, and this rugged chambray shirt is a surefire summer weekend style winner.

Foehn Brise Pants — $130

 We’ll get into the best shorts for summer in just one second, but the Foehn Brise Pants, made from a tear- and abrasion-resistant technical fabric, are the best pants for summer adventures on and off the grid.

Vivobarefoot RA II Sneakers — $150

No great summer wardrobe is complete without some stylish leather sneakers, particularly of the lightweight and sustainable variety. Get to it, folks.

Marine Layer Walk Shorts — $88

Styling your rugged chambray shirt just got even easier, thanks to these garment-dyed, organic cotton canvas shorts in a pleasing and versatile 7.5-inch inseam.

Wills Wrinkle-Free Linen Shirt — $98

Invest in the very best with one of the highest-quality linen shirts on the market, the kind that won’t wrinkle (because of linen and polyethylene). This makes it an ideal shirt to wear to the office and then out of town on the weekends.

Proof 72-Hour Merino Short-Sleeve Henley — $74

This rugged short-sleeve henley is a longtime favorite of the blog, made with go-anywhere, moisture-wicking fabric in a wide variety of colors. Heck, get more than one.

Aer Travel Duffel — $170

You very well might recognize this bag, one of the best travel bags for men, from this blog and elsewhere, but it’s worth reconsidering it again as you plan out seasonal trips.

Far Afield Selleck Short-Sleeve Shirt — $135

Last but not least, let’s end this roundup of the best Huckberry gear with a look at a fun, stylish and not-too-zany short-sleeve shirt. Call it one of the best patterned short-sleeve shirts out there right now, but just make sure it ends up in your summer rotation before that first big BBQ.

Alright, then. Who’s got a hankering for the best Huckberry gear now? As always, the retailer never misses, so to speak, when it comes to just about the widest array of men’s style essentials you could hope to shop for any season, but especially for when the thermostat climbs. Witness everything from one of the best patterned short-sleeve shirts to a durable travel bag (and not just any travel bag — one of the best travel bags for men). Or, consider getting one of the best men’s T-shirts or else, the epically cool Huckberry x Timex Cola Watch. Whichever way you go, be sure to follow me on Twitter to let me know your favorites.

 

 

The Friday Read: Sustainable New Sneakers, Sebago x Engineered Garments & New Huckberry Gear

GREATS Royale review

Your favorite new sustainable sneakers for spring and summer.

In honor of Earth Day last week, and as part of the ongoing commitment to sustainability that we all need to make, let’s talk about some of the most sustainable men’s sneakers on the market from Brooklyn’s own GREATS. That’s a fitting way to *step* into the weekend, is it not? Sure thing. Last week, the brand released a limited-edition GREATS Royale in Indigo Dye, with each sale donating to the Global Green: Our Cities Coalition. Oh, and the kicks themselves feature a footbed made from Bloom™ algae foam, plus recycled cotton laces. So, yes, they’re sustainable from A-to-Z, and they’re also some of the most stylish men’s sneakers out there for adding a pop of (natural) indigo dye to your summer footwear rotation. I know they’re on my wish list. If they’re on yours as well, you can get 15 percent off your first order with the code BROOKLYN15.

Mack WeldonThat’s a fine way to start the weekend, in my view: By shopping for your favorite new sustainable sneakers. Of course, that’s not the only item on my to-do list. I’m still plenty busy dog-sitting in Florida (follow me on Instagram to check out the highlights!), and there’s fun in the sun and local craft beer to enjoy this weekend, plus some work on my twice-weekly newsletter, The Style Guide In Brief. I cover music, menswear and craft beer, and it’s free to your inbox every Tuesday and Saturday. What’s stopping you from subscribing, ehh?? You’ll be hearing more about that from me in the near future.  For now, I’ve got some final writing to knock out for the weekend, including my next dispatch for the Huckberry Journal. Have a great weekend, stay safe, stay sustainable and stay stylish.

  • To match up with those stylish and sustainable sneakers above, you’re going to need some equally stylish essentials this spring and summer. Enter Frank And Oak, a longtime favorite of the blog (see a few of my favorite sale picks from Frank And Oak here). The Canadian fashion brand makes a nice mix of casual and sharp basics & tailored pieces for men and women, including the Aero Ultra Light Overshirt, made from recycled bottles and other materials. It’s the sort of easygoing yet functional and cool shirt jacket you can wear for spring & summer days on the road.

  • You can’t go wrong at all with great menswear for a great cause, to say the least. Flag & Anthem, makers of Western-style and casual shirting and slim jeans (among other staples) announced that a portion of its sales this month are going towards autism initiatives and special programs as part of Autism Awareness Month via its new Autism Awareness Collection (as seen above). Oh, and you can use the code FRIENDS25 for 25 percent off everything. Again, great menswear for a great cause (and now, a great deal).
  • Two brands, one old-school and one an established player in the fashion world, have teamed up on your new favorite summer shoes. That’s right: Sebago and Engineered Garments came through with a new series of deck shoes in cool materials like suede and croc-stamped leather, and I wrote all about it for Maxim. Lace ’em up and step out in style.
  • If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it, well, probably close to a thousand times. You can get the best new menswear and gear for spring & summer at Huckberry, and I did the hard work for you (well, at least some of it). Head to this blog post to read my top shopping picks at Huckberry for the weekend ahead and well beyond. Cheers, folks.

We’re just about done when it comes to today’s Friday Read, but I’ll send you galivanting off into the weekend with one final selection.

Gear up accordingly, and I’ll see you out there, my friends.

Style Pick of the Week: Proof 72-Hour Merino Polo

Best men's polos

A classic men’s polo in a modern fabric, featuring a modern fit — all courtesy of Huckberry.

If there’s one thing I know about myself when it comes to the best menswear for spring (and beyond), it’s that I’m about as appreciative of a “one-stop shop” as anyone. By that, I mean I like knowing where to go and what to buy with just a few clicks, which brings me to today’s Style Pick of the Week on one of the best men’s polos. Of course, the culprit at hand (in a good way!), is Huckberry, a longtime favorite of the blog that excels at stocking and selling everything from the best seasonal menswear to the best spring jacket and more, as you no doubt know. That includes today’s must-buy, the Proof 72-Hour Merino Polo.

Myles Apparel

As the thermostat climbs ever higher, the best polo for men ranks high on my shopping list this season, and it should rank highly on yours. Without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, meet the Proof 72-Hour Merino Polo, a favorite of mine that packs a punch in terms of style points, affordability, functionality and plenty more. That sure sounds like one of the best men’s polos, does it not? You’re correct there, sir.

SHOP: The Proof 72-Hour Merino Polo

Proof 72-Hour Merino Polo review

This essential men’s polo features comfortable fabric and comes in an array of versatile colors, like Dark Olive.

The Proof 72-Hour Merino Polo stands apart right in its very name, and that’s very good news indeed. Merino wool is an underrated fabric that, when done right, is much lighter and more breathable than regular wool, and here, it’s incorporated into this modern polo the right way. The result is a lightweight polo with anti-microbial and anti-odor properties (hence, the 72-hour designation) — you really can wear Proof merino T-shirts and polos for as long as you pleased on road trips or through hot spring and summer days alike. Again, that takes us back to the fact that this thing really is one of the best polo shirts for men out there.

Mack Weldon

The trim and tailored fit makes this suitable for everything from a round of golf to a day at the office to a backyard BBQ, cold beer in hand. Plus, the fact that it’s reinforced with nylon within the fabric means you can wash it without worrying that it’ll wear out too quickly (not that you’ll need to wash it all that  much, that is). As if that wasn’t enough, the Proof 72-Hour Merino Polo uses two button snaps for a low-key finish. And last but not least, your new favorite polo shirt comes in six neutral, versatile colors and retails for under $90 at Huckberry. How’s that for checking all the right boxes, ehh? Not bad at all.

#OOTD: The Best Way to Wear Your New Favorite Boots for Spring

My friends, if you’re anything like me, you’re going to be mighty hesitant to stow away your favorite boots, even as spring weather starts to roll through town in earnest. But that’s where today’s #OOTD comes into play, because we’re going to talk all about how you can keep wearing your new favorite boots, even through the balmy days of spring. It all starts, naturally, with finding the right pair of boots.

They’ve got to be lightweight yet durable, they’ve got to be able to handle the demands of spring weather and spring pursuits — from casual days at that reopened office to afternoons hanging out at your favorite brewery — and they’ve got to pack in a lot of bang for your buck. As you’ll see below, the best boots for men are coming at you courtesy of Huckberry and the brand’s recently launched line of workwear-inspired boots. They’re supported, of course, by plenty of other new Huckberry essentials, and that’s a great thing for you indeed. We’re talking the best henley for men, plus some classic selvage jeans and an investment-level watch. I don’t want to spoil the rest of it, but believe me when I say it’s going to look great and perform quite well for you this season (to say the very least). Lace ’em up and let’s get to work.

  • The Boots: Rhodes Footwear Bozeman Boots, $265 — Let’s build this #OOTD from the ground up with the best boots for men this season. These workwear-inspired boots are rugged, durable and yet built on a lightweight wedge outsole.
  • The Henley: Marine Layer Lightweight Henley, $68 –The key with this rugged and functional ensemble is the right supporting pieces, like the best henley for men, done up in a lightweight fabric.
  • The Jacket: Flint and Tinder Unlined Waxed Jacket, $178 — This Flint and Tinder trucker jacket is a stone-cold classic, and now it’s done up with unlined construction. Call it one of the best spring jackets for men.
  • The Spring Denim: Flint and Tinder Stretch Selvage Denim, $168 — Back at it with more gear from Flint and Tinder, this time featuring some of the best jeans for men this spring. The stretch selvage is comfortable and versatile.
  • The Watch: Alsta Superautomatic 50th Anniversary Limited-Edition Watch, $2,090 — Bear with me here, because this investment-level watch is durable, incredibly well-made, and highly precise. It’s the best men’s watch for this ensemble, guaranteed.
  • The Belt: Flint and Tinder 365 Belt, $85 –Every great ensemble requires the best accessories, like one of the most dependable leather belts for men out there. And yes, it’s from Flint and Tinder.
  • The Grooming Essential: ASYSTEM Performance Skincare , $55 — Stock up on a handy trio of the best men’s grooming essentials, and reap the rewards with refreshed skin for spring.
  • The Everyday Carry: Mystery Ranch Mission Hybrid, $240 — Mystery Ranch makes some of the best everyday carry gear for guys, and this durable hybrid bag is made to go anywhere you go this season.

That’s going to wrap up todays #OOTDD, and quite nicely at that, right? Right. Fear not boots lovers, because you can assuredly keep wearing some of the best boots for men this spring, as long as you’ve found the right pair. And in my humble opinion, those workwear-inspired boots as shown above are going to be the right way to go, to say the very least. The ensemble gets all the better, though — it’s accented with a lightweight henley for spring layering, and not just any old henley. Again, in my opinion, the best henley for men only gets better when you pair it with one of the best spring jackets for men, a rugged trucker jacket that just improves with age. Naturally, some of the best jeans for men complement this look quite nicely and in casual-yet-rugged fashion, while an investment-level watch is the natural next step as far as your accessories are concerned. Finish it off with a leather belt from Flint and Tinder, grab some of the best everyday carry gear for guys and get ready to hit the road in style. Or rather, get to ready to get done whatever it is you need to get done. Cheers to spring!

The Thursday Buy: This Flint and Tinder Selvage Shirt is Your Go-To Spring Shirt

Flint and Tinder Selvage Architect's Shirt

The kind of essential everyday shirt you can wear for just about anything.

If you recently started another day standing in front of your closet, wondering in vain about what shirt to wear for the day’s activities — be it (masked) grocery shopping, (masked) brewery to-go beers or another Zoom call, have I got the shirt for you. Meet the Flint and Tinder Selvage Architect Shirt, one of the best men’s shirts for spring, and the sort of shirt you can wear no matter how much or how little design work you do. It comes to you courtesy of Huckberry and the famed, much-loved line of Flint and Tinder style essentials, which includes everything from a waxed shirt jacket to the best everyday gear (across several categories). But back to the Flint and Tinder Selvage Architect Shirt, which is the kind of grab-and-go shirt your spring wardrobe could use.

When you feel like you’ve exhausted all your Zoom call-worthy shirts, this one is here to save the day. Huckberry says it’s built more like a workwear piece than a classic Oxford shirt, which is good news for more than just Zoom calls. Throw on this selvage buttondown shirt at a moment’s notice to shape up for your next meeting, and assuredly keep it handy for weekend yard work (yes, it can pull double-duty).

SHOP: The Flint and Tinder Selvage Architect Shirt

Flint and Tinder review

Selvage detailing showcases how well this shirt is made by the Huckberry team. Cheers to that.

Now, it wouldn’t be one of the best shirts for men if it didn’t provide a hearty dose of versatility, right? It’s the Japanese slub selvage denim fabric in a cool shade of Marled Charcoal that gives this shirt its neutral, crisp edge (literally and figuratively). It’s as easily wearable with dark denim as it is with tan chinos or olive canvas workwear pants. The rest is really up to you, because you can layer the Flint and Tinder Selvage Architect Shirt atop a white T-shirt for easygoing spring style, and you can throw it on over a thermal shirt for an unexpectedly chilly morning. Oh, and you can also wear it all on its own, fresh coffee in hand as you kick back this season.

Footwear options aplenty are going to shine through with this rugged workwear shirt, from classic chukka boots to canvas high-top sneakers. It’s truly a mix-and-match shirt that provides you with bountiful styling options, all the better to switch up your spring wardrobe when you feel like it needs some switching up. And because this is Huckberry we’re talking about here, this shirt is priced reasonably ($128 from Flint and Tinder) — if you ask me, it’s yours for the taking. Happy (early) spring, folks.

#OOTD: How to Wear the Best New Spring Jacket from Huckberry

If you ask me, we all need one truly essential, go-to jacket in each and every season (yes, even summer). While your go-to winter jacket might be a burly parka or a tough waxed trucker jacket, the answer for spring style is a bit simpler. One of the best jackets for men this spring has got to be effective, it’s got to be versatile enough to wear casual and more tailored picks, and it’s got to be ready for anything, simple as that. Enter the Flint and Tinder Quilted Flight Jacketan old-school jacket that draws design inspiration from military pieces and yet brings it all forward into the present day. That means a trimmer fit and more advanced fabrics, plus that reliable and durable design you’ve come to expect from Huckberry.

That’s only the tip of the iceberg, as it were, when it comes to getting ready for early spring. The season can bring everything from unexpected sunlight to even more unexpected rain, so the supporting cast in today’s #OOTD is on-hand to help you power through in style. To be more specific, picks like a performance-minded, classic men’s Oxford shirt, your new favorite T-shirt and the best chinos for men will help you go just about anywhere, be that an outdoor coffee date or a long-awaited return to the office. Put it all together at once, and you’re going to look, well, great. Keep on scrolling for today’s picks, folks.

 

Best men's jackets for spring

Putting the spotlight on a new favorite jacket from Huckberry this season.

  • The Jacket: Flint and Tinder Quilted Flight Jacket, $188 — Retro style meets modern functionality in this classic flight jacket, one of the best men’s jackets for spring (especially if you favor casual, on-the-go style). Huckberry gets it right.
  • The Shirt: Mack Weldon Oxford Shirt, $88 — This classic men’s Oxford shirt is made with high-performance fabric to wick moisture and prevent sweat, making it one of the coolest men’s buttondown shirts (literally) on the market. Don’t forget, Mack Weldon also offers free U.S. shipping, folks.
  • The Base Layer: Sunspel Riviera T-Shirt, $90 via UNCRATE — Here’s the thing with spring weather: It can go from blustery and rainy to hot in a matter of minutes. So, get this investment-level, James Bond-approved T-shirt to wear all on its own if need be.
  • 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.
