To get even more specific, the lightweight and stretch-filled Mott and Bow Broome Jeans are the perfect pair of jeans to wear for summer, especially if you’re the type of person who simply can’t stop wearing denim (guilty as charged). You’ve very likely read all about Mott and Bow here on the blog through the years. The brand has been a longtime favorite, makers of everything from classic blue jeans to surprisingly stylish men’s chinos, and then some. The Mott and Bow Broome Denim, so named for Broome Street in a nod to the brand’s NYC roots, carry on the upstart denim brand’s focus on quality and accessibility, to say the very least. And again, if you’re the type of person who simply loves to wear denim on the daily, then you’re in luck.

Mott and Bow has, after all, been making some of the best men’s jeans for years now, and they’ve perfected the right blend of quality and value. That’s probably an understatement, but it does shine through indeed with the Mott and Bow Broome Jeans. It all starts with the fabric, a 12.8oz. stretch denim that gets a boost through 360-degree, four-way stretch technology. That sort of stretch is going to make these jeans buoyant, not heavy, and it’s going to allow you to get around on the go in style. For guys who love wearing jeans even through the hot summer months, every bit of comfort is essential. Of course, it also helps that Mott and Bow makes stylish men’s T-shirts in ultra-lightweight fabrics, because a T-shirt and jeans on a hot summer day is about as all-American as it gets.

Slim - Broome - Medium Blue

It also all comes down to the fit and feel of these jeans. The Mott and Bow Broome Jeans are available in three crisp and cool Mott and Bow fits, including Slim, Straight and Skinny. I prefer the Slim fit myself, but the great thing is, Mott and Bow offers free shipping and returns, as you very well know if you’ve shopped the brand in the past. Select the wash, fit and size, and then be prepared to be mighty pleased with the results. The Medium Wash finish is also ideal for summer, when light wash denim is naturally easier to wear and all the more stylish on hot summer days.

Naturally, that light wash also lends itself quite readily to plenty of easy and breezy summer style staples, be it a lightweight short-sleeve shirt or one of Mott and Bow’s men’s T-shirts. Either should prove soft, versatile and casual. The list goes on as you consider picking up a pair of the best men’s jeans, because you can also wear these with an unlined cotton blazer and a crisp Oxford shirt for business casual days at the office or even a night on the town, Old Fashioned in hand. The best men’s jeans for summer are yours for the taking, so don’t waste any more time shopping ’em.

Style Pick of the Week: Mott and Bow Charles Twill Chinos

Mott and Bow Charles Twill Chinos

Pick a color, any color, when it comes to the best men’s chinos for spring and beyond.

What’s a new season if not the ideal time to check out new men’s style essentials from a favorite, tried-and-true brand? That’s the main reason we’re here with today’s Style Pick of the Week, as we look at what makes the Mott and Bow Charles Twill Chinos (otherwise known as the Mott and Bow Everywhere Chinos) some of the best chinos for men this spring. But Mott and Bow, you say? Don’t they specialize in men’s denim?

Well, they sure do, but since I first reviewed the brand in 2015 (throwback!), they’ve expanded into men’s T-shirts, stylish sweatshirts, durable men’s shirts and of course, the Mott and Bow Everywhere Chinos. The DNA of these stylish men’s chinos has a lot in common with Mott and Bow’s classic dark denim, from the agreeable fit and pricing to the top-notch materials used. A quick note about price: They retail for $99 at Mott and Bow, a downright steal given what they’re selling. After all, it’s not too big a leap from men’s denim to men’s chinos, is it? And my guess is, you could use your share of both as we head into spring in earnest. So, that’s where the Mott and Bow Charles Twill Chinos enter the equation (and your wardrobe).

Slim chinos in an essential color, made with all the right detailing.

As you’ve come to expect from a brand that already makes your favorite pair of denim, the Mott and Bow Charles Twill Chinos have plenty going for them as far as fabrication and construction are concerned. The midweight cotton-blend fabric (featuring a touch of elastane for stretch) should prove comfortable and easy to wear for hours at a time, ideal if you’re looking for the best pair of pants to wear at home (and on the road). The fact that these classic men’s chinos aren’t paper-thin also makes them an ideal pair of spring pants — wear them with rugged pull-on rain boots and your favorite rain jacket to combat breezy days as you run errands or dine outdoors this season.

The Slim fit mimics that of Mott and Bow denim, which means the Mott and Bow Charles Twill Chinos are crisp enough to wear to the office (preferably with a casual men’s cotton shirt) when the time comes. And if you’d rather just wear these chinos with a Mott and Bow T-shirt for hanging out on the weekend, well, you’re in luck — they can do that without missing a beat. You should expect a lot from the Mott and Bow Charles Twill Chinos because you’re absolutely getting a lot in return.

Mott and Bow Hubert Jeans

Contrasting details help set these Mott and Bow men’s jeans apart from the pack.

Hunting down the best jeans for men surely doesn’t have to be that difficult, and it helps that the Mott and Bow Hubert Jeans have plenty going for ’em. They’re a heavier fabric weight than other Mott and Bow jeans, clocking in at 14 oz. of cotton denim, plus small amounts of polyester and elastane for stretch. The medium wash (the brand says it’s meant to mimic four months of consistent wear) makes these sharp enough for the office — especially with a classic Oxford shirt, a cashmere cardigan and rugged leather boots — but you can also rock the Mott and Bow Hubert Jeans on the weekend with your favorite henley and high-top sneakers.

Style Pick of the Week: Mott and Bow Laight Slim Wash Light Jeans

Utterly classic slim jeans that are a winner any day of the week this spring.

If you’ve been regularly checking your calendar, you’ll notice that we’re past St. Patrick’s Day and barreling toward spring properly now — that means, of course, that you need spring style essentials. And to be more specific: You need a pair of the best light wash jeans for spring, and that’s where Mott and Bow can assuredly help you out. If you read the  blog on the regular (as you should!), you’ll notice that the company frequently makes some of the best jeans on the market, period — that goes for the coolest black jeans you’ve ever seen, as well as classic, winter-ready denim. But again, let’s shift our attention toward the slim light wash jeans you need to be wearing right now. We talked last summer about these slim jeans for warm weather, and it’s the right time to revisit ’em. Warmer weather means lighter fabrics, lighter colors and generally more casual style, so welcome it wholeheartedly with the Mott and Bow Laight Jeans, I say. And when it comes to Mott and Bow denim, you should rest easy knowing you’re getting the most bang for your buck (these jeans retail for $118, after all). In this case, the Mott and Bow Laight Jeans are made with 98 percent cotton and 2 percent elastane for ever-critical comfort and stretch. The hits just keep coming, though.

See Now, Buy Now: Mott and Bow Now Makes Your New Favorite Sweatshirt

A well-made, casual and seriously cool sweatshirt from Mott and Bow.

If  you visit the digital pages of this blog often enough, you’ll find that we’re big fans of NYC-based denim purveyors Mott and Bow. They’re the focus once again of today’s See Now, Buy Now series, and they specialize in making a range of affordable men’s denim in quality fits, fabrics and washes, all with an emphasis on direct-to-consumer efficiency. And if you really, really dive deep into the blog, you’ll know that the brand does more than just make your favorite pair of jeans. In fact, as of this year, Mott and Bow is now making your new favorite sweatshirt (as the headline implies). The Mott and Bow Hooper French Terry Crewneck is, most importantly, versatile yet casual, not to mention extremely stylish and well-made — how’s that for a triple whammy? Not bad, right? Like all Mott and Bow gear, the difference is evident right from the start, and in this case, that means the right fabric sets this stylish sweatshirt apart from the pack.

SHOP: The Mott and Bow Hooper French Terry Crewneck

One of the versatile colors in which you can get this crucial sweatshirt.

It’s pretty great that a brand that makes some of the coolest men’s jeans continues to branch out into complementary, stylish pieces that work very well with the slim denim on tap from them — I’m a fan after testing in recent weeks and months. Available in colors like Charcoal Heather, Heather Gray and the Navy option seen above, this rugged-yet-classic crewneck sweatshirt should  pair well with everything from slim dark blue denim (from Mott and Bow, of course) and a classic Oxford shirt to tan chinos & white high-top sneakers for a bit of early, early spring transitional style. It helps that the crewneck sweatshirt has transcended its humble athletic roots to become a go-to everyday style move — I’d also suggest you layer it underneath a denim jacket with olive chinos and your favorite pair of chukka boots for easygoing weekend (or casual office!) style. The point is this: The Mott and Bow Hooper French Terry Crewneck is more than just your average crewneck, and you should expect nothing less from a brand that continues to innovate on all fronts.

#OOTD: Wear Your Crewneck Sweater to the Office (Or Anywhere) This Winter

In recent years, the classic crewneck sweatshirt, the traditionally gym-centric style, has undergone a mdern resurgence — and I’m here to tell you that yes, you can wear your new favorite crewneck sweatshirt just about anywhere this winter, and you can do so with the rest of your winter style essentials. Can you wear it to the office? Yes, definitely. Out for drinks on the weekend? Assuredly. To get coffee and stroll through the park? Most definitely. So that’s where we’ll start today’s #OOTD, and we’re going to specifically focus on the new Mott and Bow Hooper French Terry Crewneck (which also happens to be a wise pairing with slim Mott and Bow denim, while we’re at it). But back to the matter at hand — what exactly makes the crewneck sweatshirt so versatile for wearing beyond the gym? In this case, it starts with the tailored fit, the minimal color (navy is shown here), and the material & construction from Mott and Bow — French Terry cotton is high-quality but casual, which makes it an excellent complement to a timeless Oxford shirt and classic twill trousers as shown below. So that initial combo (alongside the Taylor Stitch Vertical Jacket) means you can take this look to the office then out to drinks afterward, just as easily as you can start from scratch on the weekends when you’ve got a full day out and about. As you’ll see, touches like rugged Chelsea boots give this look more than a touch of winter-ready functionality, and an equally rugged leather watch stands up to the heartier style demands of winter. So again, where you can take the Mott and Bow Hooper French Terry Crewneck? Just about anywhere you like, naturally. Read on for the full look.

 

Yes, your Mott and Bow crewneck sweatshirt is as versatile as can be.

OK, so that’s how to wear your new favorite crewneck sweatshirt .Now, does this look work when you wear your trusty athletic logo crewneck? While those are all well and good to keep on hand for game days, the real key here is the Mott and Bow Hooper French Terry Crewneck  — it’s slim, minimal and versatile enough to wear lounging on your couch or at home. Of course, this look gets an office-ready lift from the classic Oxford shirt from Huckberry (unbutton those buttons for a bit of devil-may-care style). Yet, the option as to where you’re heading wearing this outfit is entirely yours, seeing as the classic twill trousers shown here from Faherty Brand have the styling potential of jeans and the look of slim chinos. Naturally, that makes them the perfect pair of pants to match up with the winter-minded Taylor Stitch Ranch Boots — slip them on, then get out the door and get where you’re going (be it the office or a new distillery). What’s on your wrist is also important here, and the Bertucci A-2TR Vintage GMT is sharp enough to wear to the office, yet casually rugged enough to throw on during your off-duty pursuits. As ever with our #OOTD series, the little details matter, and using one of the best men’s face washes before you step out the door in the morning is vital, too — Duke Cannon knows how to make some of the best men’s grooming essentials out there. Naturally, the finishing touch is the Tanner Goods Utility Bifold — a critical part of your everyday carry, without a doubt. So, this look should work just as hard as you do. To see how I’m stying my own winter #menswear, head to my Instagram. Thanks for reading!

#OOTD: An Upgraded Way to Wear Dark Blue Denim This Season

OK, so you might think you’ve got it all figured out when it comes to wearing your favorite pair of dark blue denim. In fact, the right pair of slim blue jeans are a certified menswear classic (especially a pair from Mott and Bow as seen in today’s #OOTD), but there’s plenty that you can do to switch up how to wear jeans this fall. How is that possible? Bear with me here. As you very well know from perusing the pages of this very Web site, classic blue jeans are like the Swiss Army Knife of pants, able to be worn in ways both business casual and entirely laidback. Today’s #OOTD harnesses a bit of both, starting with ever-so-slightly faded Mott and Bow denim (apt for the weekend or a casual work week) and carrying on through to the gear they’re being paired with — as you’ll see, a classic Western shirt and a refined suede jacket do some heavy lifting when it comes to switching up things from the routine. In short, it’s touches like those that can elevate your favorite pair of blue denim from good to great, from the weekend back to the office and beyond. Seems to be good to be true? You haven’t seen anything quite yet.

Classic blue Mott & Bow denim to go along with seriously stylish seasonal essentials.

Although at first they might seem pedestrian or too casual, there’s actually a lot that you can do to make the best men’s blue jeans work for you in a way that’s upgraded and seriously stylish — take this ensemble, for starters. The reason this look works so well for everything from casual Friday to a first date to a brewery visit? It all starts with slim blue jeans that are worth investing a little extra — gone are baggy or bootcut jeans, naturally. And we’re not just throwing on any old shirt, either — the truly excellent Billy Reid shirt shown above is stylish, rugged and exceptionally versatile. Match it up with one of the best men’s jackets this writer has ever seen (a stylish and refined Todd Snyder trucker jacket), and you’ve got the makings of a look that’s made to impress, whether at the office or on the road. Things only get better when you look at the rest of these gear picks, from the dependable Filson Dryden Briefcase for your everyday carry right on through to the Taylor Stitch Stitched Belt

— when you take care of the small details, the bigger details (like your classic desert boots) tend to take care of themselves. Accent everything with an office or date-ready rugged leather watch, then top it off with subtly stylish Hill City socks, and you’ve got your new favorite #OOTD for the work week or the weekend. Don’t believe me? Give it a try yourself.
