Spend any time perusing the pages of this here blog, and you’re bound to come across gear picks at UNCRATE, from James Bond’s Danner boots to the best wool hiker boots around. But let’s really get into it as we roll through winter and you deal with weather that’s not exactly all that nice (if you’re in a warmer climate, you should still stick around — never know when you’ll need a gear upgrade!). At any rate, the relatively new year still calls for the best menswear for hanging at home and getting out on the road, and that’s what you’ll find at the well-appointed UNCRATE Supply Shop. You should also check out my picks for the UNCRATE Surplus sale section, but let’s get right to the rest of my selections ASAP. Cheers, folks!

The Thursday Buy: This Standard Issue Leather Duffel Is a Winter Getaway Essential

My friends, let’s get to business: It being Thursday and all, today’s Thursday Buy will have you primed for that post-New Year getaway — or any winter getaway, for that matter. I’m talking, naturally, about one of the best weekender bags for men, a new (and very fast-selling) addition to the Huckberry line of in-house goods that assuredly takes the cake when you want standout style and durability. The Standard Issue Leather Duffel is the perfect mix of rugged and refined, sized just right to take all your winter style essentials on a quick getaway upstate, to the coast and beyond. The latest and greatest is part of the new Standard Issue Leather Goods collection at Huckberry, a “vintage-inspired” offering that the brand worked to create with great care from fine leathers from Mexico’s best tannery. And if you know anything about Huckberry, it’s that when the crew sets its mind to achieving something, they certainly deliver.

SHOP: The Standard Issue Leather Duffel

In the case of this rugged-yet-refined weekender bag, you’re getting 45 liters worth of carrying capacity (enough to take some versatile gear out on the road for a few days), plus the sort of great looks only Huckberry can provide. Heck, the leather itself is gold-rated, indicating high quality and sustainable production methods. And what’s more, it’s helpful that the Standard Issue Leather Duffel fits right in with the rest of the line itself, which includes everything from a messenger to handsome leather belts and dopp kits. Load up those accessories in your weekender bag, grab your favorite Oxford shirt and leather chukka boots, then bundle up and hit the road. The Standard Issue Leather Duffel is going to be with you every step of the way.

Style Pick of the Week: Filson Tin Cloth Jacket

Filson Tin Cloth Work Jacket

A new go-to work and casual jacket with all the proper style points you need.

Well, my friends: If your New Year’s style resolutions included a commitment to buying less but buying better, and a commitment to focusing on heritage-quality gear including the best men’s winter jackets, you’re in luck. The Filson Tin Cloth Jacket is a perfectly rugged, tough-as-nails and winter-ready jacket to help you kick off 2021 in style, and that’s just a fact. We’re big fans of Filson here on the blog, makers of pieces like the Filson Mackinaw Wool Cruiser Jacket and of course, some of the best men’s gear around. That’s where the Filson Tin Cloth Jacket comes into play, because it’s been around the Filson line for years and years (with the rugged construction and great looks to prove it). The Filson Tin Cloth Jacket gets it right from the get-go as far as taking on tough weather: It’s made from the Seattle brand’s rain-repellent, abrasion-resistant Tin Cloth fabric, the kind that’s been helping adventurers, explorers and commuters face the elements for more than a century. If it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for you. This jacket is made to hit below the hip for more coverage on the go, and it helps that the back is cut so you can move around with ease.

SHOP: The Filson Tin Cloth Jacket 

Filson Tin Cloth Jacket

An utterly dependable, classic and tough jacket you can mix up with some classic Filson accessories.

This rough-and-tumble jacket really has the capabilities of multiple jackets, especially when you consider that you can team it with Filson liners for extra warmth in chilly winter weather. Because the Filson Tin Cloth Jacket retails for nearly $300, you’re going to want to get as much wear out of it as possible. By that, I mean you should wear it with everything from a denim shirt, faded black jeans and a rugged Filson henley (off-duty) to a thermal shirt and some Filson Dry Tin Pants the next time a grueling outdoor project calls. If you order yours alongside a Filson wool liner, you’ve got a virtually unstoppable outdoor jacket with plenty of room to layer. Sounds more than ideal for tough conditions out there, does it not? Snap front buttons are made with classic Filson hardware for rugged performance, while a front chest pocket offers some space for critical EDC essentials. When it gets really chilly out there, flip up the virgin wool collar for even more protection in the great outdoors. When it comes to the Filson Tin Cloth Jacket, don’t delay picking it up as you start off 2021 in classic, heritage-ready style.

 

The Thursday Buy: This Buck Mason Peacoat Is One of the Best Men’s Winter Coats Around

An easy-to-layer peacoat you can wear with just about anything you’d like.

Ever wondered to yourself what the perfect peacoat looks like? Especially the perfect peacoat to buy to close out the year (Happy New Year’s Eve, by the way!). Well, it could just be the Buck Mason Melton Admiral Peacoat, one of the best men’s winter jackets when it comes to providing classic style, hard-wearing functionality and timeless appeal. Yes, that’s right: This handsome men’s peacoat does all that and more, and at a price that’s not half-bad. It’s the latest addition to the Buck Mason rotation of utterly timeless and rugged menswear, and it’s only fitting that this classic navy peacoat fits in rather nicely with the rest of the brand’s offering. What I mean to say by that is, you can wear this rugged navy peacoat atop your favorite Buck Mason denim shirt and Buck Mason jeans without missing a beat. That’s great news as far as winter layering is concerned. Heck, this is also a perfect jacket to layer with if you’re looking for insight on how to dress casually for winter, for example. But let’s get to the specs of this coat and see if that’s really what sells you on it.

SHOP: The Buck Mason Melton Admiral Peacoat

Buck Mason Admiral Melton Peacoat

The perfect way to wear this peacoat? Very nearly — try it and see for yourself.

For starters, let’s talk about the melton wool fabric blend, which also mixes in recycled fibers for added durability and sustainability. It’s a modern update of the way peacoats were made in years past, and this jacket is all the better for it. The navy color is also true to the way peacoats were made in days gone by, and that makes it incredibly versatile and just plain cool. The Buck Mason Melton Admiral Peacoat is also wind-resistant and yet heavier than traditional peacoats, all the better to stand up to tough winter conditions.

The fit is tailored but should be relatively easy to layer, meaning you can rock it with everything from your favorite henley to a Buck Mason cardigan. The Buck Mason Melton Admiral Peacoat is also lined in Japanese satin for a smooth and soft finish, and the nautical-inspired buttons are just one more throwback-inspired touch that puts this jacket over the top. The next time you need one of the best men’s peacoats, consider your problem solved by snagging the Buck Mason Melton Admiral Peacoat.

See Now, Buy Now: The Filson Moleskin Seattle Shirt is An Unstoppable Winter Shirt

To get right down to the nitty gritty of it all, in fact, the Filson Moleskin Seattle Shirt is one of the toughest and most rugged shirts on the market, a stone-cold classic that gets the job done in fine style. It’s been part of the ever-well-stocked Filson Holiday Gift Guide this season, so perhaps you’ve already gone ahead and bought it for yourself (or someone else!), but if not, now’s the best time to stock up on what could be your new favorite shirt.

SHOP: The Filson Moleskin Seattle Shirt

Filson Moleskin Seattle Shirt

One of three timeless color options in which you can snag this moleskin shirt.

Heck, Filson men’s shirts really are legendary, bringing forth more than 100 years of history and heritage into the modern age. That’s great news if you could use a shirt that wears like a jacket, or a shirt you can layer atop a rugged henley or a thermal shirt. The Filson Moleskin Seattle Shirt checks all the right boxes, from a range of classic color options to the fact that it’s wind-resistant and durable. Consider it the perfect workshirt for early winter mornings, or else take it for a spin in between now and the new year (or else, into *gulp* winter 2021). When you want uncompromising quality and dependable style, you want a shirt from Filson: That’s just a fact.

Style Pick of the Week: Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Liner Jacket

Check your watch, check your calendar and check the weather, because winter is speedily bearing down upon us. With that being said, perhaps you’re scrambling to layer up accordingly ahead of a major snowstorm — fear not, though. Your winter layering problems are solved, thanks to one of the best men’s shirt jackets available on the market. Yes indeed, NYC’s finest — Todd Snyder — comes through once again with the Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Liner Jacket for standout seasonal style. The designer already makes one of the best men’s field jackets, to go along with accessories to match via the Timex x Todd Snyder partnership, and early indications show that this rugged shirt jacket is every bit as high-quality as you might expect. Consider it a premium upgrade to your typical shirt jacket, starting with the use of Italian nylon to craft an exterior that’s luxurious and yet ready for winter weather. The interior specs also pass muster, to say the very least, with PrimaLoft filling that offers comfort and warmth. The insulated filling also means you can wear this tough shirt jacket as an outer layer in its own right (perhaps as part of an #OOTD featuring a henley), or use this shirt jacket as a mid-layer beneath a classic peacoat. It gets better, though.

SHOP: The Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Liner Jacket

As with other Todd Snyder menswear picks, the Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Liner Jacket isn’t exactly cheap (just a shade under $300, to be precise), but you’re getting a unique blend of both luxury and functionality. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that you’ve got your pick of three colorways, from the city-ready Black to the classic Olive shown above — and a bright Orange shade for a bit of bold style. Wear this classic shirt jacket in place of a blazer atop an Oxford shirt, team it with the aforementioned henley or go casual atop a Todd Snyder x Champion graphic T-shirt. Throw in the fact that you’ve got two snap chest pockets for your EDC essentials, and this is a winning style pick through and through. And given the tailored yet easy-to-layer fit, plus those neutral colorways, the Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Liner Jacket works well with everything from crisp blue denim to slim black jeans or even tan chinos. Talk about a layer that’ll become a wardrobe workhorse in a hurry (and not a moment too soon for the holiday season). Sounds pretty ideal to me — how about you?

Style Pick of the Week: Schott NYC Wool-Blend Cardigan

Schott NYC Wool-Blend Cardigan

One of the best men’s cardigans you can layer up with all winter long.

As chilly weather really starts to roll through in earnest, one thing is pretty clear (at least to this Brooklyn style writer) — you need the right layers for winter weather, and to be more specific, you need one of the best men’s cardigans for the ultimate in warmth and quality layering. Luckily, I’ve got just the ticket in today’s Style Pick of the Week, and that would be the Schott NYC Wool-Blend Cardigan as shown above, a classic and rugged cardigan from the makers of some of the best leather jackets on the planet. It’s a fitting addition to your wardrobe and to the Schott line of utterly classic, reliable menswear, and it could even be a standout gift for the style enthusiast in your life this year, too. This is the kind of rugged cardigan you can wear on the daily, but especially on chilly winter mornings as you stoke the fire and brew another pot of coffee. It’s got the sort of old-school appeal that looks great with darn near anything, too (more on that in a second). And because it’s sold by Huckberry, you can be sure it’s one of the best sweaters for men this season, seeing as only the best of the best passes muster at Huckberry.

Milled in Scotland for a lifetime of wear.

SHOP: The Schott NYC Wool-Blend Cardigan

Schott NYC Wool-Blend Cardigan

High-quality fabric and durable details that make a difference this season.

Needless to say, the Schott NYC Wool-Blend Cardigan has plenty going for it, including a wool-nylon fabric blend for durability and ease of layering atop a rugged chambray shirt or a flannel shirt. I’d say you can call that “not missing a beat” when it comes to incorporating this shawl collar cardigan into your sweater rotation. Plus, the shawl collar design itself provides added protection from the elements and makes this a nice choice to layer underneath, say, a waxed field jacket. On its own back at home, it’ll wear equally well with tailored joggers and your favorite henley for cozy winter weekend style, and yet, the Schott NYC Wool-Blend Cardigan is going to be at its best when worn with classic dark blue denim and rugged brown leather work boots. Suffice to say, I’d wager you’ve just found your new favorite winter sweater, and it’s more than ideal that it’s available for well under $200 at Huckberry. If you do end up picking this one up, be sure to let me know on Twitter. Cheers to winter layers, and thanks for reading!

Style Pick of the Week: Wills Speckled Merino Crewneck Sweater

Wills Speckled Merino Crewneck 2

A classic and cool sweater made from top-notch materials.

On the hunt for one of the best sweaters for men this holiday season (and beyond)? If you ask me, I think your search just got a little less comlicated, because the Wills Speckled Merino Crewneck Sweater is here to solve your winter layering problems in effective, refined and surprisingly affordable style. We’re talking about one of the best sweaters under $100 for men here (it clocks in at $98), and it’s super helpful that said sweater is sold by Huckberry. That gives it a mark of quality and a high bar to clear, but again, the Wills Speckled Merino Crewneck Sweater is one-of-a-kind in its own right, from the premium fabric to the no-fuss crewneck design. The crewneck design, in fact, means you can wear this refined sweater on its own atop a long-sleeve T-shirt for a more laidback look, and yet it might be at its best with a classic Oxford shirt or a warm flannel shirt for added warmth and holiday-ready style. Yes indeed, a piece like the Wills Speckled Merino Crewneck Sweater is subtly stylish and yet seriously cool in its own way, and that makes it a highly covetable winter wardrobe addition.

SHOP: The Wills Speckled Merino Crewneck Sweater 

One of three versatile colorways in which you can snag your new favorite sweater.

As mentioned above, it helps that this versatile sweater comes in three highly adaptable colors, each of which could be the building block of a successful holiday ensemble. Team the Charcoal color with everything from tan chinos and an Oxford shirt to dark blue denim, brown leather chukka boots and a light blue chambray shirt underneath. Either of those looks should work swimmingly this holiday season. It’s also quite helpful that the Wills Speckled Merino Crewneck Sweater is made with, well, merino fabric for the ultimate in versatility. Merino regulates your temperature and acts as an anti-microbial fabric, all the better to ensure you get multiple rounds of wear out of this standout sweater. Again, you can’t top the sub-$100 price tag, either. And if I were you, I just might look to snag multiple colorways of what just might be your new favorite sweater. Who’s onboard with that? If you end up picking up this piece, let me know on Twitter.
