The Friday Read: The Best Summer Shoes, Rogue Ales & Beards for a Good Cause

Dependable high-top sneakers to wear all summer long.

Let’s start this Friday Read off right with a look at some of the best men’s sneakers, shall we? The Nisolo Cortez High-Top Sneakers are positively some of the best summer shoes you need in your rotation, and seeing as we’ve moved past Memorial Day, I’d say it’s time you geared up. You surely recognize Nisolo from the blog as makers of the excellent Nisolo Travel Derby and even a stylish weekender bag. But, seeing as we’re all staying close to home for the time being, those rugged high-top sneakers should work nicely in the interim. Now, onward and into the Friday Read. Times continue to be strange and difficult for many of us, so thank you for taking time out of your day and weekend to stop by the blog. Pressing style matters await to divert your attention, but right off the bat, I’m going to call out tge that inimitable menswear designer Todd Snyder is running a sale of up to 30 percent off on the covetable Todd Snyder x Champion line, among other items — perhaps the perfect summer sweatshirt is within your grasp via one of the best men’s style sales out there.

As for me, when I’m not dreaming about a new Todd Snyder sweatshirt for breezy summer nights, I plan on spinning some new vinyl (as usual!) — this week’s prime pick is the lovely “Vide Noir” by folk rockers Lord Huron. I’m also going to be supporting some local businesses. I recently picked up the Road House Coffee Blend from Brooklyn’s own Variety Coffee Roasters, and I’ve also got a shipment incoming of delicious, fresh craft beer from another Brooklyn staple, Threes Brewing. Of course, there’s also another Style Pick of the Week post incoming tomorrow so some writing will be on the docket, too. Be sure to join us for that, and in the meantime, here are the rest of the weekend’s top picks.

  • A brand that specializes in some of the best men’s denim might not be the first place you’d go to get a face mask during these trying times, but in fact, they could be a perfect option (think of all that useful, tough fabric). I’m talking, of course, about Fitted NYC in this case. The Williamsburg-based denim brand (as I covered for The Manual back in 2018!) is now making selvedge denim face masks — talk about style and safety rolled into one durable offering.
  • In the way of other men’s style brands making face masks, get a load of what cool-as-can-be style purveyors Faherty Brand are doing. They’ve got a selection of surprisingly stylish face masks (non-medical grade) for you to wear when out and about — that’s in addition to their excellent collection of cozy, comfortable Work From Home style essentials they’re also making.
  • Ever felt like growing out a beard and really going for it? Perhaps you’re doing something similar now, in fact? What if I told you that you could grow out your beard & donate toe a good cause in the process? For my friends in Pennsylvania in particular, the Abington Interfaith Food Cupboard has been working with the previously beardless Drew — our man Drew’s been growing out his beard, and a $10 donation to Drew’s Beard Challenge gives you the chance to vote on what happens next with his beard … and he’s got to keep it that way for five days. How could you not want to pitch in on that?? Donate here via Supportful.

  • Let’s pivot to some of the best craft beer for your weekend imbibing, shall we? West Coast-based Rogue Ales & Spirits  is rising to the occasion to meet the demands of thirsty consumers who can’t visit its physical locations. They’re now shipping beer to Oregon, Washington D.C., Nebraska, Ohio and Nevada, while also offering free beer & spirits delivery in the Portland, Oregon area. And you can also pick up your beer from one of its Oregon locations —  or  use this tracker to find it in all 50 states! Pretty great news all around, right? Cheers.

OK, let’s close things out right with one last feature before your weekend starts (or continues) in earnest. The right summer shirt is crucial to have on hand. While your rugged flannel shirting has long been stowed away, consider keeping a stylish denim shirt close at hand. In particular, check out the Buck Mason Vintage Denim Shirt via this blog post. If you do pick it up, feel free to let me know on Twitter. Alright, that’s all I’ve got. Stay safe and stay strong, folks!

#OOTD: A New Way to Wear A Stylish Short-Sleeve Shirt for Summer

Maybe you’ve got a very specific look in mind when it comes to a stylish short-sleeve shirt — and perhaps, it just so happens to be a look that’s not actually stylish (Think: Maybe the short-sleeve shirts your dad used to wear?). We’re stepping it up in a big way today for the rest of summer, introducing you to what could just be your favorite short-sleeve shirt — and it should come as no surprise that it comes from Taylor Stitch in a handsome indigo fabric. See, it’s already a major improvement from other short-sleeve shirts. The best short-sleeve shirts on the market actually offer more versatility than you think, giving you the option to wear them to a rooftop cocktail hour or even to the office on a casual Friday — that’s the case with the Taylor Stitch Jack Shirt as seen below, at least. It’s the same fit you know and love, done in a way that just works for summer (namely, the lack of fabric on your arms). And when you pair it with slim chinos from Flint and Tinder, plus a sleek pair of refined leather slip-ons, you’re looking at a shirt that’s seriously sharp — not sloppy (a la Dwight Schrute). We’re even mixing in a stylish leather dress watch for good measure. The whole #OOTD below is visually interesting and versatile, fitting for a weekend patio dinner or weeknight rooftop drinks — or, again, a day at the office (the Taylor Stitch Jack Shirt never fails). Rethink what you thought you knew about the short-sleeve shirt, then let’s get down to business.

The Best Basics. Summer Ready.

A switched-up way to wear your new short-sleeve shirt from Taylor Stitch — cheers!

  • The Shirt: Taylor Stitch Short-Sleeve Jack Shirt in Mini Indigo Waffle, $98 — Your favorite menswear brand is now making your favorite short-sleeve shirt in a handsome indigo fabric — a perfect way to switch things up.
  • The Classic Chinos: Flint and Tinder Cool Chinos, $98 — Ditch the heavy pleated chinos of days gone by and opt for sleek, slim chinos from Flint and Tinder — lightweight and breezy to keep you cool.
  • The Stylish Slip-Ons: Nisolo Alejandro Woven Slip-Ons, $178 — These refined leather slip-ons are the right way to switch up your summer footwear — wear them out to a lovely patio dinner.
  • The Watch: Lonegrade HDR140 Watch, $415 — While you could go with a casual NATO strap watch, this stylish leather dress watch from Lonegrade keeps things refined.
  • The Everyday Essentials: Bespoke Post Worn Box, $45 — For a stylish night on the town, reach for the Bespoke Post Worn Box, featuring a slim leather belt and a handy money clip — easy as that.
  • The Sunglasses: Garrett Leight Brooks 47 Sunglasses, $395 — Again, with refinement and versatility in mind, these stylish sunglasses are newly iconic, and perhaps some of the best men’s sunglasses around.
  • The Grooming Essential: Duke Cannon Solid Cologne Kit, $75 — Step up yoiur scents with one of three options from Duke Cannon — their Solid Cologne is a personal favorite, and it’ll keep you smelling great even in the heat.
  • The Essential Basic: Flint and Tinder Heritage Boxer Briefs, $28 — Take care of all the details that matter with the lauded Flint and Tinder Heritage Boxer Briefs.

Shop Mott & Bow Today!So, do you think you’ve found your favorite short-sleeve shirt quite yet? Or a new way to wear it? Hopefully — and ideally, it’ll pair up nicely with slim chinos from Flint and Tinder for a nice mix of high-low style. When you use a slim short-sleeve shirt in rich indigo fabric as the base of your outfit, you’re setting the tone quite nicely — again, this isn’t a short-sleeve shirt of years past. You’re also making it clear that things are different when it comes to your refined leather slip-ons — dressier than white canvas sneakers, more laidback and summer-friendly than lace-up leather brogues. The rest of your accessories should also set the tone for a summer cocktail hour or a weekend dinner, from your stylish leather dress watch to a pair of the best men’s sunglasses — yes, that’s right. The best. The key with this entire ensemble comes in sticking to your guns: Keeping things summer-friendly and casual, yet cool. Duke Cannon’s Solid Cologne is an underrated grooming essential to take this look to the next level, and the Bespoke Post Worn Box, with a handsome money clip, keeps things nice and streamlined. How else to close out this #OOTD? Why, with a pair of the Flint and Tinder Heritage Boxer Briefs as an essential basic. Looking forward to the rest of summer? I know I am.

See Now, Buy Now: These Leather High-Top Sneakers from Nisolo Are a New Seasonal Favorite

The rugged-yet-casual, seriously cool sneakers to buy for spring and summer.

I make no “if’s, and’s or but’s” about it — you need a pair of stylish leather sneakers in your rotation this summer, and you need a pair as soon as possible. As a matter of fact, you need a pair of high-top sneakers not unlike the Nisolo Cortez Mid-Top Sneakers, made with every bit as much attention to detail as a Nisolo weekender bag or the Nisolo x Huckberry Travel Derby. These leather high-top sneakers are shockingly versatile and made responsibly — plus, they’re as ready to wear to the office with slim light wash jeans and a classic cotton blazer as they are on the weekend. What makes them so terrific? Well, dear reader, I’m glad you asked. If you’re familiar with Nisolo, you know that the brand uses ethical manufacturing practices and works with one of Mexico’s top factories to churn out modern-day essentials — kind of like the Nisolo Cortez Mid-Top Sneakers, in fact. But as luck would have it, that’s only the tip of the iceberg; there are plenty of reasons why these are some of the best men’s sneakers you can slip your feet into this season.

SHOP: The Nisolo Cortez Mid-Top Sneakers

A classic pair of finely crafted leather sneakers that can pull double-duty this spring.

Yes indeed, these stylish high-top sneakers really get the job done in a multitude of ways. They’ve got construction akin to that of your favorite pair of leather boots, featuring a vegetable-tanned leather upper and a sturdy, comfortable Vibram sole. That means you can wear them all day long, from the office out to an outdoor patio happy hour. The rich brown Tobacco leather on the Nisolo Cortez Mid-Top Sneakers also goes with a multitude of spring style essentials, from tan chinos and a white Oxford shirt to a rugged short-sleeve henley and a pair of classic dark blue denim. The key with a pair of sneakers like this? Don’t overthink — just get as much wear as you can out of them. Sounds good to me. How about you?

Style Pick of the Week: Nisolo x Huckberry Travel Derby

Crisp, versatile derby shoes that just so happen to be perfect for summer travel.

Any list of summer style essentials calls for travel gear that can stand up to anything, right? Particularly when it comes to versatile travel shoes, I’d say. That’s why we’re here with an all-new, hot-off-the-presses, Style Pick of the Week. The Nisolo x Huckberry Travel Derby, released just a few days ago, are nothing short of the must-have shoes you need for your next summer trip. You can snag them via the Nisolo site, or via Huckberry — so there’s really no reason not to pick up a pair, right? Right.

That’s high praise, to be sure, but you can’t beat a pair of classic Oxford shoes that combine comfort, mobility and versatility. The brand made these exclusively for our pals at Huckberry, and they know a great pair of kicks when they see one. Believe you me, the Travel Derby is a great pair of kicks. The no-break-in suede upper on the Nisolo x Huckberry Travel Derby is a critical touch, truly crucial for comfort right out of the box (especially if you’re going to be wearing these for summer travel). I’m talking the sort of travel that might take you from the office to a train or a plane, then out the door to dinner. The Travel Derby has you covered. And the soft leather insole also molds to your foot, making these casual suede Oxfords easy to wear with stylish no-show socks. The XL Xtralight foam outsole is also plenty comfortable, featuring a laidback wedge shape, to boot. So, the Travel Derby has got what you might call the “comfort + specs” part of the equation down pat.

The great thing about the Travel Derby? You can wear ’em on the road, or pack ’em away with ease for summer trips aplenty.

The Nisolo x Huckberry Travel Derby also checks some crucial boxes in terms of styling potential. The silhouette and design is clean and classic, all the better for wearing with all manner of casual Friday looks. Take the Travel Derby and pair it with slim light wash jeans, a navy T-shirt and a lightweight khaki blazer — you’re set to close out the work week, and the only thing you need to hit the road is a stylish vintage leather messenger bag. And when you get where you’re headed this summer? Wear the Nisolo x Huckberry Travel Derby with slim stone chinos and a short-sleeve chambray shirt for style that’s quite happy hour-friendly. What’s the capper on the Travel Derby? It just might be the fact that these are ethically produced in Mexico — it’s that attention to detail that lends itself to a seriously stylish pair of summer shoes.  If you haven’t already decided to purchase the Nisolo x Huckberry Travel Derby, my only question is … what are you waiting for?

Head to Huckberry to get the Nisolo x Huckberry Travel Derby ASAP. 

The Friday Read: The Nisolo Holiday Gift Bundle, Barking Irons and LusterWhite Premium Toothpaste

Alright, we made it to Friday — raise a glass! Or crack open a cold one and kick back. It’s the welcome end to a long week here in NYC, one that caps off a busy five days of work following my latest Style Guide trip to celebrate a Florida Thanksgiving with my family! It was a long weekend complete with an amazing Thanksgiving meal, plus many helpings of leftovers in the days following. I even got some shopping done for Black Friday — you can check out my Instagram in the coming days for more in that regard. And why should you follow along on Instagram, exactly? Well, I’m heading back down to Florida this weekend to visit my sister for the 97x Next Big Thing music festival in lovely Tampa Bay! I’m excited to hit the road tonight to take in a great, great weekend of live music featuring some seriously fun, seriously powerful bands (many of whom I’ve had the chance to see in and around NYC as of late!).

That includes the festival’s two main headliners, The Lumineers and Paramore, along with other highly enjoyable groups like Canadian pop-rockers Arkells, New Jersey’s own Bleachers, the always-fun MisterWives  out of NYC, groovy indie rockers Portugal. The Man and upbeat dance rockers Saint Motel! That’s just the tip of the iceberg, though. It promises to be a sunny, fun weekend in Florida — I couldn’t be more excited to once again break out some warm weather style essentials, just as in past road trips to Florida, and it’s certainly a treat to embark on another Style Guide road trip centered around stellar music. Now, I know we can’t all be so fortunate as to head to warm weather every weekend … if you’ll be battling chilly temperatures, I’d recommend a stylish pair of boots like the Nisolo Andres Boots,our most recent Style Pick of the Week here on the blog.  And if holiday shopping is in the cards for you — as it should be — then you’d do well to check out this site’s picks as to the best gifts for men. But more on that very, very shortly. For now, you can join me on Instagram to follow along with all the fun this weekend, and you should stick around tomorrow to check out our next Style Pick of the Week. Alright, now it’s off to catch my flight!

  • OK, folks — have we got a heck of a deal for you. Launching today (that’s December 1st), the good folks at Nisolo — of Andres Boot fame — are offering a men’s holiday gift bundle and an equally stellar women’s holiday gift bundle that you’re not going to want to miss. Now through December 24th, customers (that’d be you!) can spend $35 to  get $250 worth of shopping credit at “bundle” brands — in short, we’re talking five brands and five gift cards good for $50 at each brand. What’s in store at each brand? Well, we’ve got rugged outdoor gear from United By Blue, beautiful bags from ONA, high-quality tailoring from Ledbury and stylish men’s boots from Nisolo, among other highlight in the men’s gift bundle. Seriously, what’s not to love about that? Again, you can get the men’s holiday gift bundle and the women’s holiday gift bundle (for yourself or someone else!) through December 24th.
  • Wearing a casual T-shirt this holiday season doesn’t have to be sloppy. Over my Thanksgiving trip to Florida, I found myself reaching for a Barking Irons tee time and again, featuring soft fabric and a retro fit. If that sounds good to you, you might want to pick up the “War Is Over” Tee from Barking Irons, or one of the brand’s other sharp graphic tees. They’d make a great gift for the guy who appreciates standout casual style, too.
  • Let’s talk a bit of grooming today on the blog, and specifically, how to keep your teeth in prime shape during the holiday season. Between red wine, chocolate, craft beer and more, keeping your teeth white can be a tall order. So, I’ve been testing out LusterPremiumWhite and the brand’s PowerWhite Deep Stain Eraser Flouride Toothpaste (courtesy of the brand) these past few weeks, and I truly can’t recommend the brand enough! It even helped me soar through my last dentist appointment with flying colors (well, sort of). Grab a tube now.

And with that, I say goodbye until … tomorrow!

Enjoy the weekend!

Holiday 2017

The List: Kick off Early Fall with the Best Men’s Gear

As we’ve been saying for a while now on The Style Guide, fall will be here before you know it. It’s the best time of the year for #menswear, what with a return to texture-heavy outfits, rugged layering and old style favorites — plus the chance to hit the road for crisp fall weekend adventures galore. And we’re getting into the swing of things a few weeks before the official start of fall with today’s edition of The List. Unlike our last edition of The List, which focused on the best gear to buy to close out summer, we’re looking toward menswear essentials with a bit more grit, a bit more rugged style and a bit more fall-ready wearability. Am I the only one excited for that first crisp fall day? Maybe? Well, let’s change that as quick as we can.  Follow me on Instagram to see how I’m getting ready for fall — and know that we’re officially going to debut our Fall Style Wish List later this week.

Original Penguin P55 Bedford Cord 5-Pocket Pant — $89

Original Penguin

A slim-fitting pair of cotton trousers in a unique fall shade.

There’s no better way to ease into fall — and ease away from slim light wash denim — than with textured cotton pants in an earthy fall color.

Bespoke Post Concentrate Box — $45 (When Signing Up for Bespoke Post)

Organize your desk AND brew a great batch of cold brew, all at once.

I’m the type of guy who can enjoy excellent cold brew nearly all year long — and if that’s the case for you, the Bespoke Post Concentrate Box features essentials to make your own cold brew and organize your home office.

Danner Vertigo 917 Boots — $199.98

One part hiker, one part sneaker — and all ready for fall, any way you slice it.

Want a set of shoes that straddles the line between between purely a hiking boot or purely a sneaker? The Danner 917 Boots do both — wear ’em with dark slim jeans and a rugged fall jacket for a day trip.

Original Penguin Pigment Overprint Shirt — $89

A thoughtfully crafted shirt, perfect for fall layering.

Early fall is an ideal time to reach for pieces with a bit more texture and visual interest — this richly colored Original Penguin shirt would team nicely with the brand’s Bedford Cords as seen above.

Baxter of California Safety Razor Set — $260
Baxter of California

Make your next shave premium and refined with Baxter of California.

Are you the type of guy who appreciates the finer, perhaps more underappreciated things in life? Like shaving with an old-school razor? This handsome Baxter of California Safety Razor Set should do the job nicely.

Banana Republic Fulton Skinny Rapid Movement Chinos — $98

Make your next chinos mobile, tailored and relatively affordable. Job well-done, Banana Republic.

Tailored chinos that look as great as they feel? Available in a range of colors, including classic khaki? Banana Republic is onto something with its Rapid Movement Chinos, which I’ve had the chance to test out & enjoy lately.
Taylor Stitch California Shirt in Army Micro Cord — $125
Taylor Stitch

A cool corduroy shirt that gives off modern — not retro — vibes thanks to the tailored fit.

 Shirting from Taylor Stitch always sells quickly — and performs reliably and stylishly. This textured corduroy shirt in a neat shade of green should become a go-to fall style move.

Nisolo Diego Low Sneakers — $129.98
Nisolo footwear

A richly crafted leather sneaker that provides edge and versatility.

Early fall is as good a time as any to break out stylish leather sneakers with a bit of rugged edge — the Nisolo Diego Low should work as well with a classic striped henley as with a rugged men’s T-shirt.
Bespoke Post B6 EDC Kit — $120

The Bespoke Post E6 EDC Kit is packed full of prime fall style picks.

From a slim wallet to a set of handy notebooks to a bottle opener and a durable pen, the Bespoke Post B6 EDC Kit has it all — literally. These men’s style essentials should certainly serve you well this fall.

Solo Stove Campfire 4P+ Stove — $109.99

Solo Stove Campfire Stove

A durable, affordable and modern campfire stove to take with you on the road.

Early fall nights just can’t be topped if you’re able to get away and spend a few nights camping — and the Solo Stove Campfire 4P+ Stove is an extremely useful, easily portable option for all your fall wilderness pursuits.
Bespoke Post Savor Box — $45 (When Signing Up for Bespoke Post)
Bespoke Post Savor Box

All the essentials you need to make a mean Old Fashioned.

Another Bespoke Post box that’s darn near a fall essential. After all, who doesn’t love a well-crafted, thoughtful Old Fashioned on a brisk fall night? Yes indeed, the Bespoke Post Savor Box is going to help you make the perfect one.
Audio Pro T3 Bluetooth Speaker — $249

A great-looking speaker that provides a stylish way to play your favorite tunes.

Last but not least — you’ve got your rugged Taylor Stitch shirt and your campfire stove, but what tunes are you cranking out? The surprisingly stylish Audio Pro T3 Bluetooth Speaker can help in that regard.
OK, my friends — that’s today’s edition of The List! Who’s ready for fall? And what was your favorite pick? I’m loving the Bespoke Post Savor Box and of course, the Taylor Stitch California Shirt. Let me know via the comments below or on Twitter — thanks for reading, and happy shopping!

#OOTD: An Updated Way to Wear Your New Oxford Shirt

If there’s one shirting style that tends to come up time after time here at The Style Guide, it might be the classic Oxford shirt. From a made-in-America Oxford shirt to the handsome Line of Trade navy Oxford shirt you’re going to read about today, there’s not a garment that more consistently works in so many style situations for today’s modern man (that’d be you!). Hopefully, you’ve already got one of the best Oxford shirts for men in your close. And although we talked about how to wear an Oxford shirt for summer, we’re shaking it up a little bit today. The below #OOTD is one that harnesses the best of end-of-summer style and yet uses rugged accessories like a heritage-quality leather belt and a tough stainless steel dive watch to nod toward the fact that fall is slowly but surely approaching.  Are you ready? I’m getting there.

Truly, I think you’ll find that the classic Oxford shirt seen below can work in all kinds of scenarios, from a casual weekend coffee run to a farmer’s market trip to a day at the office. That’s what we’re going for here, at least. And the great thing about your new favorite Oxford shirt is that it’ll work with plenty of pieces you’ve already got in your closet, from American-made denim to tailored sweatpants and crisp leather sneakers for a very laidback Sunday brunch. What do you say? Shall we get after it? Chime in on the below in the comments or on Twitter once you’ve checked out the #OOTD below. Shop on!

Line of Trade

Take that navy Oxford and pair it with slim chinos and classic kicks to step into September (and beyond).

The Oxford Shirt: Line of Trade Navy Oxford, $70 – Let’s kick it off with a modern-fitting, garment-washed Oxford shirt in a slightly different deep navy color. Ready to wear with anything — slim chinos included.

The Chinos: Banana Republic Aiden Slim Rapid Movement Chino, $98 — A recent addition to the BR line, these stretch chinos combine a tailored fit with a range of color options — although the shade seen here is perhaps most versatile.

The Sneakers:  Rancourt and Co. Carson Low in Natural Canvas, $175 — Made in America to exacting standards, these Rancourt and Co. sneakers are a more durable answer to classic white canvas sneakers — and all the better for it.

The Socks: Arvin Goods No-show Socks, $30 (Three-pack) — Because it’s not quite fall yet, we’re still rolling up our chinos to show off those USA-made sneakers — and Arvin Goods no-show socks are critical in that regard.

The Belt: Sturdy Brothers Everyday Belt in Chestnut, $80 — Tired of buying cheap accessories? This handsome, extremely well-made Sturdy Brothers belt is the upgrade you need for fall.

The Watch:  Timex Stainless Steel Waterbury Watch, $119 — Told you we’d be breaking out durable everyday accessories, right? This rugged stainless steel dive watch from Timex is a steal in terms of price and looks.

The Sunglasses: Classic Specs Lowerree Aviators, $88 — Perhaps you’re not familiar with Classic Specs  — I know I wasn’t — but pieces like these stylish Aviator sunglasses should change that in a hurry.

The Everyday Carry: Nisolo Lori Leather Tote, $134.98 — Wary of carrying a rugged leather tote when you normally haul around a stylish messenger bag? This handsome leather tote bag  is a new way to switch up your everyday carry.

Alright, then. Have a better idea of how to wear your new favorite Oxford shirt? When you start with a piece as classic and simply constructed as the Line of Trade navy Oxford shirt shown above, the possibilities are nearly endless. However, your Style Guide author thinks that keeping things straightforward is the best way to go. That is to say, slim chinos and natural canvas sneakers from Rancourt and Co. are standout building blocks for any outfit.  Add in fall-ready accessories like a rugged stainless steel dive watch from Timex  and a durable leather belt from Sturdy Brothers, and you’re set for this #OOTD — and plenty more outfits in the season ahead.  No outfit — especially one featuring a classic navy Oxford shirt — is complete without finishing touches like stylish Aviator sunglasses and a handsome leather tote bag, though. So, just as with many of your other favorite #menswear pieces, the little details matter, and starting things off with easily wearable essentials is the best way to say goodbye to one season and look toward the next.

Hope you enjoyed today’s post — and thanks for reading!
