Now, these items won’t be around forever, and stock is moving quickly, so a word to the wise: If you see something you could be in the market for when it comes to fall style essentials for men, go for it and add it to that digital shopping cart.

Now, that doesn’t include one of the best men’s sweaters, as I’ve talked about here on the blog, but the best of the rest is up for grabs.

It’s nearly time to stop the process of shedding layers for the summer, and instead focus on layering up for early fall. Enter today’s Style Pick of the Week, one of the best men’s sweaters for early fall.

Think of it like the perfect sweater to wear with jeans, especially back to a more casual office or out on an early fall weekend stroll. The fact that it layers up nicely over a Mott and Bow T-shirt or with a stylish, on-sale Mott and Bow buttondown shirt is also an added bonus, but it only gets better from there. Coming from a company that started out by only focusing on the best jeans for men, that’s not bad utility and style to have in your closet – not bad at all. And another bonus? First-time customers can get 10 percent off at Mott and Bow with the code beau10. Let’s keep on scrolling through the list of why that’s an outstanding idea, shall we?

SHOP: The Mott and Bow Light Merino Wool Crew

Fittingly, it’s the fabric that makes the Mott and Bow Light Merino Wool Crew such a solid seasonal buy (and certainly, one of the best sweaters for early fall). Merino wool is nice and lightweight to begin with, filled with moisture-wicking, breathable and anti-microbial properties. The weave here is definitely thicker than your standard merino wool T-shirt, but layering the Mott and Bow Light Merino Wool Crew should prove a snap. You can even throw a rugged waxed trucker jacket over top of it, without risking getting too hot (even on a breezy, cloudy fall day). Your new favorite sweater is also as wearable as it gets, either at the office atop an Oxford shirt or worn over a soft cotton T-shirt for a weekend coffee outing.

The crewneck design makes it easier to layer over a tee than a V-neck sweater, but you can also throw on the Mott and Bow Light Merino Wool Crew atop a Mott and Bow denim shirt with ease. And in a color like Cobalt Blue, it goes with pretty much anything and everything in your wardrobe (certainly, that list also includes Mott and Bow jeans and Mott and Bow chinos). Whatever you expect out of a great fall sweater, the Mott and Bow Light Merino Wool Crew can deliver everything you need, be it at your 9-to-5 or your favorite brewery. Layer up accordingly, folks.

A great wardrobe, or at least a wardrobe in progress, is packed with men’s style essentials for situations aplenty. Take the best jeans for men. It’s no easy feat to find the right pair to begin with, let alone a pair that works for changing seasons. Here’s where Mott and Bow comes into play (NOTE: First-time customers can get 10 percent off with the code beau10). The NYC-based retailer, a favorite of mine on the blog over the years (and a brand also found in my Style Guide Shop) is now making some essential jeans for fall (to go along with the best jeans for summer). Meet the Mott and Bow Mercer Slim-Fit Jeans, made with a medium-weight 10oz. cotton and available in a particularly seasonal Olive color. These are jeans you can wear with your favorite pocket T-shirt right now (also from Mott and Bow), and then jeans you can readily style as you layer up with a waxed trucker jacket and a rugged henley on chilly fall nights. Consider it the tip of the iceberg, because these could be your new favorite jeans.

There’s a lot to love about the Mott and Bow Mercer Slim-Fit Jeans as we head into fall, including the ways in which the Olive tone (one of 10 versatile colors available) fits in with the colors of the season.

The Friday Read: Mott and Bow Men’s Jeans, Buck Mason Trail Shorts & the Best New Overshirt

Mott & Bow: The best jeans for men and women at a fraction of the price |  CNN

There’s no time to waste on a summer Friday, so thanks for joining us for today’s Friday Read. I’ve certainly kept busy on the writing front this week (check out my latest for The Manual and Maxim here), but as ever, that’s no excuse not to dress in style. If you agree, and I think you should, (that’s why we’re here with today’s blog, after all!), then there’s one place to go to stay cool and stylish in the heat this weekend. That’d be with a pair of Mott and Bow men’s jeans, a nicely priced, super-premium way to get jeans in multiple fits (from Slim and Straight to Skinny) and washes for every occasion and wardrobe. Consider this my recommendation to start your weekend, one you’re likely familiar with if you caught my post on the best pocket T-shirt for summer earlier this week. It’s always worth reconsidering a brand that does one thing so well, so think of this endorsement like my own Mott and Bow review. What are you waiting for? The clock is ticking, and so is the time to start planning your own stylish weekend.

Now, onto the next order of business here in my weekly recap. I’ve got another recommendation for you to kick things off, especially if you’re inclined to tune in to some music throughout the weekend. As you very well might know, I author a twice-weekly music-menswear-craft beer newsletter, The Style Guide In Brief, which covers my favorite bands and my favorite menswear in turn (bands like The Strokes, essentials like a stylish denim jacket). It’s worth subscribing if you pull your style inspiration from the stage, or if you just want a listening recommendation and a new beer to try throughout the weekend.

I’ll be working on the next edition prior to tomorrow morning, when it’ll hit your inbox. I’m also going to take the rest of the weekend to write, pack and relax (hopefully, in that order) — I’m hitting the road for a family trip to the great “Up North” of Michigan. To see how that trip goes next week, be sure to give me a follow on Instagram! As for now, here’s the rest of today’s recommended Friday reading and shopping. Enjoy and thanks for reading!

  • No summer adventure, and least of all not in a place like Michigan (or really, anywhere with idyllic lakes and wide-open spaces) is complete without the right pair of shorts. Buck Mason has solved this quite handily, as you’ll see in its New Arrivals Section. The Buck Mason Barstow Trail Roam Shorts are a new step into rugged, sporty and ever-so-slightly outdoorsy territory for the famed American retailer, makers of some of the best men’s jeans. Made from a four-way stretch nylon blend, they’re meant to mimic standard issue Marine Corps shorts. They also feature a hidden zip cord pocket and a mobile-yet-tailored fit. They’re your new favorite pair of shorts, no doubt about it.
  • Here’s another recommendation that works both right now and later on this fall and winter. This certainly won’t be the last time you read about the rugged, durable and seriously cool Filson Denim Work Shirt, which is the type of layer you can wear atop a Filson T-shirt for later summer, then continue wearing with a hard-working Filson thermal shirt when temperatures cool off. I’m excited to get my hands on one for testing soon, and you can be sure the results will be hitting the pages of this blog sooner rather than later.

  • I talked above about the importance of finding one of the best pairs of jeans for men, but it can be easier said than done at times. That’s where my latest guide for Fatherly — a really excellent parenting and lifestyle site for guys (and really, anyone!) comes into play. I covered a crucial ensemble, the best jeans and T-shirt combinations for men, with enough picks at every price point and to satisfy every taste and style. Let me know what you think of my picks on Twitter. Cheers!

As I’ve said in the past, covering lots of ground in the menswear world can be daunting. Allow me to help, particularly with my recent guide to the best menswear to buy now at Taylor Stitch. We’re talking versatile, well-made men’s style essentials you can either buy or pre-fund now, and then wear to your heart’s content season after season. Once again, if you take the plunge with menswear from Taylor Stitch, let me know on Twitter. That’ll wrap up today’s’ Friday Read. Enjoy the weekend, my friends!

See Now, Buy Now: The Mott and Bow Carlton Pocket Tee is an Essential Summer T-shirt

If you think you’ve figured out, say, the best men’s jeans for summer or perhaps the best lightweight chinos, why not look for the perfect complementary piece: One of the coolest T-shirts for men, the classic and highly wearable pocket T-shirt. The pocket T-shirt is just like your regular T-shirt, except when, well, it’s not. In the case of the Mott and Bow Carlton Pocket T-shirt, it’s anything but ordinary — kind of like other Mott and Bow style staples. This is great news as we move through the rest of summer and head slowly but surely towards Labor Day. What are you going to wear in the meantime? Well, besides picture-perfect Mott and Bow men’s denim, I’d wager one of the best pocket T-shirts for men is as solid a bet as any. Especially if it’s laidback and ever-so-slightly rugged style you seek, the pocket tee is a perfect move (just look at how sharply dressed, cool-as-can-be celebs like Ryan Gosling rock a pocket T-shirt, after all).

america

Yessir, you need a pocket T-shirt or two in your life, and it helps if the makers of your favorite jeans are on hand to provide a perfect option for you. What makes the Mott and Bow Carlton Pocket Tee a must-buy? Reader, it’s all in the details.

SHOP: The Mott and Bow Carlton Pocket Tee

The Mott and Bow Carlton Pocket Tee, like I mentioned above, is anything but your average T-shirt. Mott and Bow men’s jeans offer plenty of bang for your buck at attractive prices, and the same can be said about Mott and Bow T-shirts (the Mott and Bow Carlton Pocket Tee retails for $35). Of course, it helps that you can wear your jeans with a T-shirt and look great, but it’s more than that. The combed cotton construction is surprisingly soft, yet this tee is sturdy enough to be worn on its own without looking like you’re wearing an undershirt.

Shop Pact Today.

It’s a substantial T-shirt that will hold its shape, from the collar to the hem and sleeves, without stretching out. And while the fit isn’t skin-tight, it’s a nicely tailored T-shirt that looks cool and Gosling-esque, not sloppy. The pocket itself separates this T-shirt from a sea of similar options, making it very likely your new favorite pocket T-shirt. Mott and Bow calls it a “luxurious everyday tee,” and having tested this tea out myself, I tend to agree. The Mott and Bow Carlton Pocket Tee is also available in classic and standard colors, all the better if you’re looking for ways to wear a T-shirt with jeans. No matter how you choose to rock this tee, it’ll prove a style you find yourself wearing again and again the rest of summer.

See Now, Buy Now: The Mott and Bow Broome Jeans are the Best Men’s Jeans for Summer

Does the idea of wearing jeans in the summer sound unappealing? If I may, that could just be because you haven’t found some of the best jeans for men in the form of Mott and Bow men’s denim. 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.

Shop Pact Today.

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.

SHOP: The Mott and Bow Broome Jeans

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?

mandarin woods 300x250

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).

SHOP: The Mott and Bow Charles Twill Chinos 

Mott and Bow Charles Twill Chinos

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.

Logo 300x100

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.

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.
