Before we go any further: How awesome are those rugged leather chukka boots from Huckberry up top, ehh? They’re the lead-off pick in today’s edition of The List, chronicling the best new menswear for September (and well beyond). Football season is in full swing (wear this gear to your next tailgate), Oktoberfest beers are flying off shelves (here’s what to wear to your favorite brewery), and I’ve rounded up some of my top gear picks for every occasion imaginable this season. Yes indeed, we’ve got slim dark denim and more classics just primed for the taking. The first day of fall is almost here — are you ready? Read on & happy shopping.
Rhodes Felix Chukka Boots — $198
Here on the blog, we’ve been telling you for some time that Rhodes boots, as sold by Huckberry, are some of the best men’s boots on the planet (witness the Rhodes Dean Boots, in fact). And now, the Rhodes Felix Chukka Boots are here, and they’re destined to become your new favorite boots — easily.
Mott and Bow Crosby Slim Denim — $108
Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Tee in Wild Forever — $45
If you read this site regularly, you know we love the Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Tee, easily one of the best men’s T-shirts you can buy. This stylish tee has been upgraded with an adventure-ready “Wild Forever” design on the chest pocket — perfectly subtle & classic.
Case Knives Smooth Chestnut Trapper Lock Knife — $96.98
Beckett Simonon Laval Chukka Boots — $219
Yes, that’s right — we’re talking about a second stylish pair of leather chukka boots. These dressy leather chukka boots from Beckett Simonon epitomize rugged quality and craftsmanship; wear them to the office with a navy wool suit this fall.
Wellen Organic Denim Shirt — $88
So we told you earlier about the best men’s jeans to wear all season … but what if you want an equally stylish denim shirt to complement said jeans? Turn toward Wellen and this rugged denim shirt; the in-house brand at Huckberry gets all the details right.
Jack Mason Overland Leather Watch — $225
What’s the best way to complement a stylish denim shirt and perhaps your new favorite boots? Answer: The Jack Mason Overland Leather Watch, a classic everyday watch that’s simple and refined, yet just rugged enough. It could be the perfect leather watch, in my book.
Flint and Tinder Waxed Ridge Parka — $398
Does it seem too early to be thinking about buying a rugged waxed parka? Something like the Flint and Tinder Waxed Ridge Parka (as previously seen here on the blog)? Think again, because you’ll need this jacket before you know it.
SYMBOL Audio Aero 76″ LP Storage Cabinet — $4,535
If you, like me, suffer from sticker shock and yet find yourself coveting the best record storage system out there, well, join the club. This SYMBOL Audio Aero Storage Cabinet is remarkably handsome & well-constructed, the perfect complement to your massive vinyl collection (jealous!).
Can you fault Levi’s for continuing to make something as iconic as the Levi’s 501 Jeans? No, certainly not — so it’s all the better that Levi’s Made & Crafted has made these classic jeans in a deep, inky black. Perfect as you dress for your next rock concert.
OtterBox Venture 45 Cooler — $300
Karl Strauss Brewing x C-Star Provisions Steakhouse Stout Beef Jerky — $9.34
OK, you’ve got the OtterBox Venture 45 loaded up and ready to go — for the car ride, grab some excellent Karl Strauss Brewing x C-Star Provisions beef jerky. Seriously, you can taste the rich Wreck Alley Imperial Stout in this remarkable beef jerky — it’s no joke!
Proof City Merino Hoodie — $188
Looking for a stylish zip hoodie? Perhaps one you can wear on that aforementioned camping trip? The Proof City Merino Hoodie is one of the best men’s hoodies I’ve found this season, and that’s saying something.
Art of Sport Deodorant — 2 for $17.90
We’ve talked a ton today about rugged men’s gear, but what about men’s grooming essentials, like this essential and impactful Art of Sport deodorant? I love the sharp scent and effective performance — hopefully, you will, too.
Stetson Chapman Hat — $155
OK, let’s go with one last piece of rugged gear for an outdoor adventure, shall we? This classic Stetson hat is tough to top (literally and figuratively) and should wear particularly well with a rugged henley and maybe some classic jeans, ya dig?
So, that was quite the extensive collection of men’s gear, was it not? What was your favorite selection? In my neck of the woods, it’s tough to top a pair of the best men’s jeans or the simply excellent Rhodes Felix Chukka Boots. Let me know your thoughts on Twitter — cheers!
