Folks, welcome once more to The Friday Read, where I give you the proper tools to head into your weekend in style. Considering that we’re rolling into early fall, at least on the calendar, I’d recommend you do yourself a favor in this shortened version of my weekly recap and pick up one of the best men’s sweaters from Buck Mason. Kind of like the vintage Buck Mason sweater seen above, yes? I’ll be adding that one to my wish list as we roll into the fall season in earnest.

On another note, it was a short but very busy week in New York City, one that rolls on right now: It’s New York Fashion Week once again. After a year-plus of virtual shows, it’s been thrilling and fun to safely get back out there and see everything from emerging designers at New York Men’s Day to the inspiring gala put on by Runway of Dreams last night. As it were, I have plans to attend more shows yet today, so stay tuned to my Instagram for more NYFW highlights. In the meantime, here are a few brief highlights from this week in the world of menswear and writing by yours truly. Cheers!

  • The headline mentions Laphroaig whisky above, so that’s where this entry comes into play. More to the point: I had the chance to review the latest Laphroaig whisky launch following a summer road trip upstate to experience outstanding Scotch and outstanding community, and you’d do well to add some to your bar cart via my latest dispatch for Maxim.
