The Friday Read: The Best Oxford Shirts, Taylor Stitch x Stetson & UpWest Clothing

Durable, dependable, made to last — that’s what Faherty Brand offers here. The perfect way to start your weekend.

Perhaps you, like me, are looking for one of the best men’s winter jackets as we head into another winter weekend (and as we dress for the polar vortex, no less). That being said, perhaps the Faherty Brand Atmosphere Hooded Jacket at the top of the page can get your weekend started right — that’s why we’re here with another edition of the Friday Read, after all. And to help you work on your New Year’s resolutions and bolster your winter style offerings, I think you’ll find plenty of handy, helpful tips and tricks below (A hint: That includes new boots from Taylor Stitch x Stetson). Elsewhere, when you start out with one of the most important layers — a rugged winter parka — you’re guaranteed to make it a great weekend (or at least, a bearable one in the snow and slush). I don’t have any doubt that I could get a lot of use this coming weekend out of the Faherty Brand Atmosphere Hooded Jacket, seeing as I plan on getting out and about in the borough with my new Pub Pass, a standout “coupon book” of sorts (but with a much cooler design) that offers free beer at some of the best spots in Brooklyn — I’ve already visited soccer-themed pub Banter, and I think I’ll make it a point to visit another favorite haunt (Covenhonven) soon, too. In the meantime, I’ll be keeping up with the latest music festival drops as we look ahead to summer — Coachella announced its lineup last week, Bonnaroo dropped its lineup earlier this week, and more are on the way. Who else is pumped?

You can keep up with all the fun on my Instagram — and for now, let’s dive into the rest of what you need to know this weekend.

  • I mentioned above we’d dig into the new Taylor Stitch x Stetson Moto Boots as part of that standout collaboration, and well, here they are — I covered these outstanding, rugged leather boots for GearMoose, and they’re only available for pre-funding for a limited time. Best get right to it, folks.
  • The headline of this post says it all — to kick off your weekend and keep your winter rolling, I wrote about the best Oxford shirts for my friends at The Manual. When you want classic men’s style essentials, an Oxford shirt is one of the best places to start.
  • Maybe you want to ease into this year in casual, laidback style — the sort of style that can refresh your approach to wellness and provide you with new perspective and comfort. On that note, the folks at UpWest think they’ve got what you need, from cozy sweats to warm thermal shirts and more. Naturally then, I wrote about a clothing brand that can change your life — head to The Manual for more.
  • Lastly, on the music front, I mentioned the 2020 Coachella lineup above — have you ever been to the country’s biggest music festival? I haven’t, and unless the indie rock quotient is upped significantly in future years, I can’t say when I will! But, to each their own. Back to menswear for now, OK?

Last but not least, I’m going to direct you back toward a pretty straightforward piece — my take on the best new menswear essentials to start the year. We cover solid cologne, new winter flannel shirting, dependable boots and plenty more — all of which are going to serve you well come 2020. OK, that’s all from me — time to kick back with some coffee (first) and a rich beer later. Cheers!

Let’s look at this new year as one of further grow in terms of classic and adventurous men’s style, and all the things that the best men’s style can bring to your life (from greater confidence to improved work performance — seriously!). The adage “Look good, feel good” has never held more weight than it does right now, and with that being said, I’m here to tell you all about the best new men’s gear … for a new year, and possibly … a new you. We’ll start with the incredible Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt in Rust Plaid, and go from there with 10 of the best new men’s gear picks. Cheers to a new year!

A rugged men’s shirt you won’t want to stop wearing.

A true favorite of mine (as you might have seen on my Instagram), and soon to be one of yours as well, the Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt is one of the best men’s shirts on the planet, made from incredible fabric and featuring the ability to be layered over your favorite henley or worn on its own. It’s too good to be true … except it’s not. It’s the best shirt to buy to start 2020.

Duke Cannon Solid Cologne — $25

A handsome-smelling solid cologne from an excellent brand.

The new year is perhaps the best time to update your men’s grooming essentials — and what better place to start than Duke Cannon and the lauded, excellent-smelling Duke Cannon Solid Cologne? This is the right way to amp up your personal scent (for the better).

Flint and Tinder Golden Bear Suede Trucker Jacket — $998

One of the best trucker jackets — heck, the best leather jackets, period — you’re apt to find this year.

The quest to find the best leather jacket on the market (on the planet?) continues, but it would appear that the Flint and Tinder Golden Bear Suede Trucker is giving that title a run for its money. Wear this rugged trucker jacket (which actually comes off as quite refined thanks to the rich suede) with any of the menswear essentials on this list, the AT Slim Pants from Western Rise included.

Mott and Bow Classic Cashmere Crewneck — $149

A slim, subtly stylish sweater to wear all winter long.

There some of the most durable pants out there, with surprisingly sharp style built right in.

Form-Function-Form Horween Leather Chronograph — $128

The uniquely made Form-Function-Form Horween Leather Chronograph features an innovative strap design and of course, a tough Timex chronograph watch.

Wellen Headlands Sweater — $138

A highly stylish men’s sweater made with sustainability in mind.

We’ve talked about Wellen previously as one of the best new brands to shop if you want sustainable style, and the Wellen Headlands Sweater exemplifies that dual-minded approach quite nicely. It’s the rugged winter sweater you’ll find yourself reaching for whenever the weather takes a turn.

Flint and Tinder Check Buttondown — $108

A classic shirt to wear any day of the week this winter.

We’ve focused on the right men’s style essentials to shop if you want to start making upgrades to your look, and there’s hardly a better place to start than with one of the best men’s shirts from Flint and Tinder.  The well-made Flint and Tinder Check Buttondown exemplifies classic style for the office and the weekend.

 

Although it’s tough to narrow down any list of the best new men’s gear to just 10, how do you think we did? Perhaps you’re now coveting a pair of the the best leather boots from Yuketen? Or maybe the Flint and Tinder Check Buttondown is now a must-buy? My favorite from this entire list, of course, might just be the rugged-yet-versatile Taylor Stitch Crater Shirt — if you want to weigh in with a take of your own, shoot me a note on Twitter. Cheers to 2020!

 

 

 

 

#OOTD: Step Out in Classic Winter Style This Season With Your New Favorite Gear

So, my friends — here we are. The last day of 2019 — can you believe it?? Make no mistake, you can still roll your favorite style essentials (like this #OOTD) into 2020. In fact, I highly recommend it. Now, as I’m sure you know, it’s New Year’s Eve. Presumably, you’re prepared for the big night? But we’re going to look ahead a little bit, with the sort of winter style essentials you can wear beyond just tonight (although if you still need some help with what to wear on New Year’s Eve, you should check out that post as linked there). We’re talking about gear that’s fit for a casual office or a weekend happy hour in equal measure. Heck, if your New Year’s Eve is going to be more casual, then this should provide some inspiration, too. That being said, you’ll recognize the right men’s style gear for winter regardless, from a classic crewneck sweater to your new favorite flannel shirt and beyond. Again, the emphasis is on gear that you can wear beyond just a fancy New Year’s Eve, and I think you’ll be mighty pleased at the versatility we’re giving you to start 2020. Yes, that includes rugged leather boots and a tough casual watch, as well as plenty of new everyday favorites. So, how about it? Let’s show you how to start 2020 the right way. Like what you see? Head to my Instagram for more real-time men’s style tips. 

Taking the classics you know and love, then amping them up just a bit for winter.

  • The Classic Sweatshirt: Birdwell Beach Britches Garment-Dyed Raglan Crew, $89.95 — The folks at Birdwell Beach Britches have been making classically rugged-yet-laidback gear for decades now, from swim trunks to essential winter style picks like this classic crewneck sweatshirt in a handsome shade of indigo. The perfect winter sweater (I should know, I’ve been testing it courtesy of the brand!).
  • The Shirt: Western Rise TechWool Flannel Shirt, $119 — A classic crewneck sweatshirt like the onne seen above can be layered up with just about anything — especially this stylish flannel shirt from Western Rise. It’s moisture-wicking to keep you comfortable, and this is also a uniquely office-ready flannel shirt.
  • The Jacket: Flint and Tinder Golden Bear Leather Jacket, $998 — Now, is this classic leather jacket well-suited for, say, the polar vortex? Not quite — but the rest of the time? Yes indeed, this is one of the best leather jackets your menswear writer has seen in some time. In fact, one could say every guy needs a leather bomber jacket in his rotation, and this is the one to buy.
  • The Pants: Duluth Trading Co. DuluthFlex Ballroom Slim-Fit Khaki Pants, $59.50 — This is a classic pairing all the way through — slim, surprisingly durable chinos and one of the best leather jackets never fails. These Duluth Trading Co. khakis are made from pre-washed cotton twill and spandex for comfort and durability; they’ll also provide great mobility thanks to the Hidden Crouch Gusset®.
  • The Boots: HELM Boots Marion Color No. 8 Boots, $395 — For rugged style that’s fit for winter weather and the office, you need some of the best men’s boots — like these absurdly beautiful HELM boots made with color No. 8 Horween chromexcel leather.
  • The Watch: Martenero Kerrison Watch, $595 –The only way to round out this outfit is with a tough casual watch. In fact, Martenero has quite the habit of making some of the best leather watches on the market. This is the one you need.
  • The Grooming Essential: Duke Cannon Solid Cologne, $25 — Yes, you need some Duke Cannon Solid Cologne in your life. Some of the best men’s solid cologne can give you as much confidence and style as, say, one of the
  • The Everyday Bag: Filson Ballistic Nylon Duffel Backpack, $245 — Whatever your day calls for, be it punching the clock at work or heading across town to grab a coffee, your everyday carry essentials need this tough Filson bag.

The fun thing about taking stock of the men’s style essentials you’ve got in your wardrobe — or perhaps, the ones you need to add — really starts when you realize the versatility you’ve got at your fingertips. How so, Beau? Well, this outfit has a bit of everything, including a classic crewneck sweatshirt that gets a dressier update thanks to the way you layer it up with a stylish flannel shirt. That makes this combo both office and weekend-ready, and it only gets better — it’s helped along by surprisingly tough Duluth Trading Co. chinos that work from Monday through Sunday. The real unsung hero might be that classic leather jacket from Flint and Tinder — seriously, can you ever go wrong with one of the best leather jackets, especially when it’s warm, cozy and durable? Of course, no outfit in cold winter weather is complete without some of the best men’s boots, particularly when they’re made with remarkable color No. 8 Horween chromexcel leather. See, we’re bringing together plenty of what you already have, including a tough Filson bag and naturally, one of the best leather watches you can throw on your wrist. Wrap it all up with Duke Cannon Solid Cologne, then be prepared for the compliments to head your way … non-stop.

Style Pick of the Week: Western Rise TechWool Flannel Shirt

A performance-minded flannel shirt for all your winter pursuits.

There are classic flannel shirts that call to mind cold winters, chilly mornings, the good old days, and perhaps … a certain lack of modern style. Now, make no mistake, I love — I mean, LOVE — a rugged flannel shirt as much as the next guy (check out this Filson flannel shirt, for starters), but what if you’re looking for a modern flannel shirt? That’s where Western Rise enters the equation today, and they do so with one of the best men’s flannel shirts you can buy right now. Yes indeed, the Western Rise TechWool Flannel Shirt delivers all the style points you’d expect from your standard flannel shirt, and it does so using fabrication and product specs that are as modern as can be. To wit: The TechWool Flannel Shirt is made with a blend of COOLMAX fibers and fine-gauge wool, plus elasterell polyester for stretch, comfort and breathability — it’s a downright revolutionary fabric blend that’s as comfortable as it is stylish. So, bonus points to Western Rise for that. Did I mention it’s also moisture-wicking and odor-resistant? Because it can do that, too.

SHOP: Western Rise TechWool Flannel Shirt 

One of the best flannel shirts — and one that blends performance and style.

All of that would certainly be enough to make it one of the best men’s shirts on the market — period — but it’s also got a few more things going for it (to say the least). Namely, this slim flannel shirt features a fit that’s, well, slim and tailored — not bad for a cold-weather staple. That means, in my mind, that you can pair the Western Rise TechWool Flannel Shirt with your favorite henley or all on its own underneath everything from a tough workwear jacket to a stylish denim jacket (add a scarf and classic beanie cap when things get chilly). The Cloud color is cool and contemporary, as well — it’s almost akin to your trusty classic Oxford shirt, so you can wear it with a navy cotton blazer or a shawl collar cardigan to head to the office (yes, yes you can). That go-anywhere potential also means you can wear this stylish flannel shirt each and every day of the week, and that means on the weekends (with a laidback crewneck sweatshirt and chinos), as well as  during the work week and out on the road. For a one-of-a-kind flannel shirt, the only option right now is the Western Rise TechWool Flannel Shirt.

Cheers!

See Now, Buy Now: The Roark Revival Convoy Jacket is the Best Jacket You Can Buy For Fall

The perfect fall jacket? It could just be.

When we talk about the best jackets for fall, there are several considerations to keep in mind — it’s a high bar to clear, to be sure. Yet, the Roark Revival Convoy Jacket happily clears that bar, taking care of business (every day!) when it comes to rugged fall style. Now, what exactly are those conditions? And how does Roark Revival deliver? My friends, put on your new favorite fall jacket and let’s go for a walk. The best fall jacket needs to be rugged, yet versatile — the Convoy Jacket, with its use of tough 9oz. waxed cotton in a supremely wearable deep khaki color, fits the bill. It also needs to be wearable in a variety of style situations — given that the Roark Revival Convoy Jacket is modeled after a vintage trucker jacket, it also hits the mark. Seriously: Wear it with a white Oxford and your favorite pair of jeans to the office, or keep this rugged trucker jacket handy to wear with a classic henley and equally tough chore pants.

SHOP: The Roark Revival Convoy Jacket

The Best Basics. Summer Ready.

The right details and fit set this jacket apart.

As we’ve said before, the best fall jacket also needs to be functional given the weather we encounter this season — the fact that this waxed canvas trucker jacket is water-resistant is hugely helpful any day of the week. Plus, you also have to appreciate the heritage-inspired corduroy collar on the Roark Revival Convoy Jacket, not to mention the handy snap-button closure pockets for your everyday carry. Side slit hand pockets also work to keep, well, your hands warm — again, don’t underrate the functionality of the Roark Revival Convoy Jacket. The silhouette should also be refined and yet easy to layer — you could even wear this jacket atop your favorite crewneck sweatshirt if the weather gets especially chilly. As we’ve said before, you need uncompromising quality when it comes to your go-to fall jacket — and in that regard, the Roark Revival Convoy Jacket simply (and stylishly) delivers.
