You’ve still got time to rock this classic striped T-shirt, believe me.

First off, I hope everyone is enjoying a nice holiday — that unfortunately means we’ve closed the book on summer, but that also means we’re slowly but surely entering the best time of the year for menswear: Fall! And with it comes a need to stock up on early fall style essentials, naturally. Now, there’s no need to break out  your rugged parka quite yet.

See Now, Buy Now: These Quoddy Blucher Shoes are The Perfect Shoes for Early Fall

The rugged, classic boat shoes to wear as we start early fall.

So, here we stand, on the verge of Labor Day weekend (gasp!), the offical end of summer (on paper at least), and the start of the slow transition toward early fall. What early fall style essentials are you shopping for? Well, I can help you out with at least one in today’s new See Now, Buy Now post: The Quoddy Blucher Shoes are some of the best men’s shoes to get on your feet right now, as apt to be worn on the weekend as at the office. How does that work out? Read on & you’ll find out. For starters, it helps that these rugged leather boat shoes have got that ever-crucial Huckberry stamp of approval, a nod of good faith that these richly handcrafted leather shoes are the real deal — especially as you start to stow away your stylish sneakers in favor of something a bit more substantial. And folks, that’s where the rugged appeal of the Quoddy Blucher Shoes comes into play, starting with a rich leather upper that’ll break in beautifully.

SHOP: The Quoddy Blucher Shoes

 

A new take on the classic leather boat shoe, one that’s equally ready for the weekend or the work week.

And as far as boat shoes are concerned, these have a  few other critical design pieces going for ’em. For one, they fit the rather rare definition of rugged leather boat shoes — again, that rich leather makes them more suited for the changing leaves and changing temperatures than the heat of summer. The anti-slip rubber sole also helps them navigate the city and perhaps even an early fall park stroll. And the design extends to the rich brick red outsole itself — these Quoddy Blucher Shoes toe the line between rugged and casual. They’d be ideal to wear with a rugged long-sleeve henley and classic dark blue denim for a weekend coffee date, but you can (and should!) team up the Quoddy Blucher Shoes with classic tan chinos and a timeless Oxford shirt for a casual day at the office. That alone makes them some of the best men’s shoes, don’t you agree?

SHOP: The Quoddy Blucher Shoes

Elevated Basics. Grounded Price.

See Now, Buy Now: Gear Up for the End of Summer with this Faherty Brand Poncho

The breezy, cool outer layer to wear for crisp late summer & early fall nights.

Does it feel a bit strange to be looking toward Labor Day and thinking about early fall gear like rugged leather boots, overshirts and the like? Well, we’re not ready to close the book on summer quite yet, and neither is Faherty Brand — take the Faherty Brand Pacific Poncho, for instance. It’s the perfect layer with which to end summer, given its hybrid styling potential and the laidback, West Coast appeal for which Faherty Brand is known, of course. Made from breezy brushed cotton and featuring the enduringly cool Dusty Colorado print, think of the Faherty Brand Pacific Poncho as the upgraded take on the sort of pullovers you’d see at your local skate park (you know what I mean). Indeed, Faherty Brand has translated the things that make the brand a year-round essential — check out the Faherty Brand Brushed Flannel, to start — into unstoppable transitional pieces. Yes, that’s right — unstoppable.
SHOP: The Faherty Brand Pacific Poncho

This surprisingly stylish poncho is the sort of outer layer to pack in your weekend bag for a Labor Day getaway (or any early fall trip, for that matter), and the Faherty Brand Pacific Poncho also provides more than just something to throw on at a bonfire. That is to say, it’s stylish enough to be worn with dark denim and a charcoal Oxford shirt to grab a beer on the town, and chambray detailing gives it even more visual interest. Don’t sleep on this sort of layer, either – consider it an upgraded over an athletic logo hooded sweatshirt, and a huge one at that. When it gets a bit chilly in early fall, you can also layer it under a rugged denim jacket — no sweat. So you see, shifting from summer into early fall needn’t be a chore, and the Faherty Brand Pacific Poncho proves that.

The List: Gear Up for the Rest of Summer Right Now with these Men’s Style Essentials

Just one of many essentials you’ll need to enjoy summer — right now.

You see those stylish summer slip-ons from Nisolo pictured above? They’re one of just many keys to unlocking a laidback, easygoing summer (for the rest of the season, that is to say). And there are oftentimes some seriously straightforward ways to make it easier on yourself. That’s where today’s post comes in. You can find some of my favorite gear picks from the Huckberry Summer 2019 Catalog (and plenty more places!) outlined below. Once you dive into these men’s style essentials for the rest of July and August, there’s no telling where you’ll want to go next. Have any thoughts on other must-have men’s gear picks? Let me know on Twitter.

Nisolo Alejandro Woven Slip-ons — $178 

The perfect middle ground between dressy and casual when it comes to summer footwear.

Aren’t these just calling out to be worn on vacation? Now, there’s a major difference between the best pair of slip-ons and your standard, flimsy flip-flops. The Nisolo Alejandro Slip-ons are nothing to slouch at, as easy to wear with slim chinos and a stylish summer polo as they are with chino shorts and your favorite T-shirt.

Faherty Brand Beacon Trunks — $98

The eyecatching summer swim trunks you need in your life (and your wardrobe).

You know Faherty Brand for expertly cut flannel shirts and stylish cardigans, but what about must-have swim trunks for summer? Like the Beacon Trunks? Consider these vacation-ready.

Banks Journal Business and Pleasure Short-Sleeve Shirt — $70

Your new go-to summer shirt? It very well could be.

If ever there was a modern, stylish short-sleeve shirt that looked like it should be worn by James Bond, it might be the Banks Journal Business and Pleasure Shirt. A breezy fabric and a classic fit make this a winner from the Huckberry Summer 2019 Catalog.

DuFrane Barton Springs 656 Diver Watch — $656

An astonishingly durable watch for summer adventures.

Aptly named according to the price, the DuFrane Barton Springs Diver is the must-have watch of summer, made so that it doesn’t miss a beat — it can go from the beach to the boardwalk to the bar with ease, so that means it’s one of the best men’s watches out there right now (seen previously in my guide to what to wear to happy hour).

SLVDR Keck Tee — $50

The perfect summer T-shirt? You be the judge of that, my friend.

The search for one of the best men’s T-shirts remains elusive and challenging — yet, if you want a retro-inspired change of pace, reach for the SLVDR Keck Tee, then wear it with stylish high-top sneakers and stylish slim jeans. Speaking of …

Mott and Bow Slim Mercer Jeans in Olive — $118

A change of pace from the typical — in the best way possible.

If you’re the type who still loves wearing slim jeans in the summer, then just know that not every pair you wear has to go full-on light wash — these Mott and Bow jeans in a handsome shade of olive are simply perfect for all those other times.

Roark Revival Layover Shorts — $65

Functional zippers and comfortable fabric add another dimension to these stylish shorts.

Functional summer shorts are actually out there — if you know where to look. And the travel-ready Roark Revival Layover Shorts are as functional and dependable as it gets. Easily some of the best shorts for summer I’ve tested this year.

Pantropic Tucson Fedora — $134

A breezy summer hat that’s made the right way.

Don’t start by writing off the fedora just yet — the Pantropic Tuscon Fedora is a stylish summer hat that wouldn’t look out of place with a camp collar shirt and breezy linen pants on your next beach vacation.

Tom Beckbe Bottle Flask — $150

The potentially perfect sipper to bring to your next bonfire.

Is a heritage-quality flask a true must-have part of your everyday carry? Well, that’s debateable. But the Tom Beckbe Bottle Flask could be the perfect companion on a breezy summer evening stroll (beverage of choice not included).

Mott and Bow Classic V-Neck Tee in California Blue — $32

The right V-neck tee to wear on easygoing summer days.

OK, back to menswear. Summer is all about laidback style — and this stylish V-neck T-shirt, again from Mott and Bow, is a lot more well-made than V-neck T-shirts of years gone by (looking at you, American Apparel). Wear it with Mott and Bow jeans, if you feel so inclined.

Taylor Stitch Western Shirt — $125 

A Western shirt unlike any other on the market, and that’s a fact.

Another standout from Taylor Stitch? Assuredly. This classic Western shirt gets a modern upgrade in a lightweight, cotton-hemp blend. Wear it with a pair of the brand’s standout chinos for maximum effect.

Mystery Ranch Mission Wheelie — $345

A tough suitcase that can fit absolutely everything you need (and then some).

So, you’ve got all the stylish summer gear you could ever want … but nothing in which to pack it for your next summer adventure. That changes with the Mystery Ranch Mission Wheelie, one of the toughest, best rolling suitcases for all your essentials.

Click Here!That’ll turn the page on another edition of The List — are you feeling ready to take on the rest of summer? And which of the above gear picks will you be buying?

#OOTD: How to Dress for Your Next Summer Wedding

So, the date’s long been set, your travel plans are in order, the room is booked, the gift is bought … that being said, what are you going to wear to this summer wedding!? Fear not, folks — The Style Guide is here to help in a pinch. How to dress for a summer wedding is really a conundrum any way you slice it; it could be outdoors and it could be hot, you could be in a more casual location … the answer, my friends, can be found in the #OOTD below, featuring a classic navy blazer from the likes of Taylor Stitch, plus stylish leather loafers, classic tan chinos and plenty of other #menswear fun. We’re toeing the line between formal and too casual, as it seems most weddings do these days. Let’s not overthink it too much, and after all, you’ve got more important things to worry about (celebrating the wedding!). That being said, you’ve still got to look sharp – that’s where a classic leather watch comes into play, not to mention some Hardworking Gentlemen Medium Hold Paste — more on the specifics in a second. Again, we’re keeping it casual but crisp, and ready to take on the heat — wait until you see the summer style hack we deploy below. Check out the full #OOTD and feel free to let me know what you think over on Twitter. Cheers!

A solid mix of the best essentials for a summer wedding, don’t you agree? 

  • The Jacket: Taylor Stitch Telegraph Jacket, $298 — There’s no wrong way to wear stylish suiting from Taylor Stitch, and the Telegraph Jacket is handsome, sharp & not over-the-top — plus, it’s lined in cotton chambray for breathability.
  • The Shirt: Wellen Double Cloth Short-Sleeve Shirt, $68 — Bear with me here. The wedding is outside. It’s hot. There are very few ties being worn. And to stay cool before you ditch your suit jacket for the dance floor? Wear this stylish short-sleeve shirt from Wellen.
  • The Chinos: Mollusk Surf Shop Chinos, $98 — Like I said, we’re keeping it casual — these slim chinos are breathable and polished enough for a more laidback wedding (not too laidback, though!). Plus, they’ll look mighty fine with your
  • stylish short-sleeve shirt from Wellen.
  • The Dress Shoes: Astorflex Patnoflex, $175 — Leave the lace-up dress shoes at home (or at least consider it), because these stylish leather slip-ons are all you need to nail a casual wedding look.
  • The Watch: Timex x Todd Snyder Welton Bi-Metal Watch, $158 — There’s something pleasingly sharp and refined about this throwback-inspired watch — the perfect dress watch for a summer wedding.
  • The Sunglasses: Pacifico Optical Buckler Sunglasses, $164.98 — Like we said, if the wedding or cocktail hour is outdoors, you’ll need the right gear — like stylish sunglasses from Pacifico Optical, ehh?
  • The Pomade: Hardworking Gentlemen Medium Hold Paste, $26 — Showing up to a wedding isn’t about just rolling out of bed — it’s about looking your best. Hence, this Hardworking Gentlemen Medium Hold Paste. Perfect for a fresh summer ‘do.
  • The Travel Bag: Filson Dryden 2-Wheel Carry-On, $295 — Hey, you’re going to need at least one bag to get to the wedding,and this tough two-wheel suitcase is the way to go (A tip: Wear the Telegraph Jacket onto your plane, paired with slim dark jeans and a light blue Oxford).

OK, do you at least feel a little more prepared when it comes to what to wear to your next summer wedding? Undoubtedly, you’re going to want to stay cool and sharp — a stylish short-sleeve shirt from Wellen could be the key to achieving that, and no one needs to know you’ve ditched your sleeves. Elsewhere, it all starts out up top with stylish suiting from Taylor Stitch, the ideal way to meet any dressy occasion if you prefer to not be so stuffy. The choice of pants matters here, too — avoid pleats in favor of slim chinos in a classic material and color — they’ll sit nicely atop your stylish leather slip-ons, again a reliable choice in the warm weather for keeping cool. Leave your sport shades at home, too — a pair of stylish sunglasses from Pacifico Optical are going to look nice and refined as the topper on this #OOTD. Perhaps the real topper, though? Your fresh summer haircut, finished off with some Hardworking Gentlemen Medium Hold Paste.Naturally, your watch is every bit as crucial as the other components of this look, so aim for the perfect dress watch, here made perfectly by Timex and Todd Snyder. And to make sure all your gear (and your gift) gets to the wedding in one piece? Grab a tough two-wheel suitcase for the jaunt. If you follow these tips, I can’t guarantee you’ll be the best-dressed guy at the wedding, but you’ll be quite close. Again, cheers!

Style Pick of the Week: Bespoke Post Sol Box

The key to summer relaxation? Quite possibly the Bespoke Post Sol Box.

The perfect way to unwind on a summer weekend? Well, I can’t tell you what exactly is required there (cold beer and sunshine?), but I can indeed tell you that the Bespoke Post Sol Box is going to make your weekend a whole lot more relaxed — and a whole lot more stylish. That’s because the Bespoke Post Sol Box features some of the best espadrilles you can slide your feet into, made with handcrafted care and available for a very, VERY agreeable price. If you follow the blog, you absolutely know we love what you can find at Bespoke Post. Think of it as the thinking man’s monthly subscription service, delivering everything from everyday carry essentials to everything you need for a summer grillout — and of course, the Bespoke Post Sol Box falls within that same realm, and same low price ($45 when you sign up for the site). In short, what you’re getting with the Bespoke Post Sol Box appears simple at first, but can offer a whole lot more than that. Consider your alternatives to your sturdy leather boots and even your stylish suede chukka boots — you’ve got classic leather moccasins, of course, but how about we shake things up?

SHOP:The Bespoke Post Sol Box 

One of two versatile colorways when it comes to the Bespoke Post Sol Box.

I’m talking, of course, about some of the best slip-ons for men, an option not considered often enough — but then again, not every pair of espadrilles is as stylish as the Visgata Sitges Espadrilles as found in this Bespoke Post Box, right? Exactly right.

This pair is handcrafted by artisans in Spain, and it reflects the laidback style of the Mediterranean. Wear these with your favorite pair of linen trousers and a camp collar shirt to head to a lovely evening of dinner and drinks, or just throw on the Visgata Sitges Espadrilles with tailored shorts and a classic slub tee every single time you please. The cotton canvas upper is breathable and comfortable, while the use of natural jute is sustainable and again, highly stylish. Plus, you can throw the espadrilles from the Bespoke Post Sol Box into your weekender bag with ease as you hit the road — talk about packing light. And while you can’t exactly pair these with your classic business casual suit, you should feel free to wear the Visgata Sitges Espadrilles with tan chinos and a tailored white Oxford to dinner on your next vacation. The key to summer relaxation? It’s gotta be the Bespoke Post Sol Box.
