Durable boots that pack a punch in terms of winter style.
As we always say here at The Style Guide, it’s high praise to call out a pair of men’s boots as, well, the best winter boots — but if you stick around for today’s See Now, Buy Now entry, I think you’ll start to grasp why. And the boots in question today have plenty of moxy to back up those claims: Yes indeed, the Red Wing Heritage Wacouta Boots are tough-as-nails, durable as can be, and supremely stylish to boot: Hence, the title of “best men’s boots” today. Coming right out of the gate, if you know the Red Wing Heritage brand, you’re aware that they continually go to great lengths to craft the best leather boots on the planet — the Wacouta Boots are no different. The use of tough full-grain leather ensures these rugged Red Wing Heritage boots can take a beating right off the bat, while other design touches (right on down to the classic Red Wing leather laces) only add to that durability.
The best new casual watch to make it through a tough winter.
If you’ve been putting your attention toward other matters when it comes to winter style essentials, such as the best winter jacket for a blizzard (Hint: It’s here in this #OOTD) or the toughest winter boots, you’d be be forgiven for overlooking something as diminuitive as the watch on your wrist. That all changes today, thanks to the introduction of the Centric Instruments Lightwell Watch, quite possibly the best casual watch (for the price and functionality) that you’ll find in your search right now. Priced at $250 and sold via Huckberry, it’s a durable casual watch made for the everyday and the adventurous — and when a watch looks as good as the Centric Instruments Lightwell Watch, you’re going to want to find plenty of reasons to wear it. But first: Why does this particular watch work especially well for winter? Allow me.
The dial coating helps this watch shine bright on dark winter nights.
For starters, this rugged casual watch delivers toughness through a surgical-grade stainless steel case, to go along with a 38mm case diameter that’s neither too bulky nor too small. It’s also easy to read at night, all thanks to a dial that’s been coated with Superluminova BGW9. 100 meters of water resistance means you needn’t worry about the occasional snowstorm putting this watch out of commission — simply find the best leather gloves, throw on your favorite winter parka, and get out there. When it comes to hunting down one of the best casual watches for men, you definitely don’t want to skimp in the looks department, either. Thus, a crisp and easy-to-read dial designed to stand out quietly (and stylishly) when paired with everything from slim blue jeans and a classic shawl cardigan to a flannel-blazer-chinos combination at the office. For outdoor excursions at your cabin and days in town hanging at your favorite brewery, the Centric Instruments Lightwell Watch is going to be the way to go — try it and find out for yourself.
Perfectly rugged, dependable boots to invest in now, then wear all winter.
The right pair of winter boots can go a long way — a really long way — in determining the success of your style ensemble (and your mobility, for that matter) when it comes to getting around during these chilly, snowy times. And with that being said, there’s no better pair of men’s boots to invest in at the moment than the rugged Mark Albert Uptown Boots, some of the best leather boots to slip your feet into for December (and beyond, naturally). Part of the exceptional Huckberry Fall 2019 Catalog (and a hot-selling pair of boots, at that), I’d be willing to bet you don’t quite have a pair like the Mark Albert Uptown Boots in your current rotation. And if you’re already acquainted with Mark Albert boots? Well, best to give a new pair a shot for a new season, ehh? The thing with these rugged leather boots is that they’re aged to perfection already, so they’ll look like you’ve had them for years (thanks to the premium kudu leather), yet you can still break them in all on your own. And given that you’re going to find yourself needing boots for all occasions this season, you’ll have plenty of chances to break ’em in nicely.
A tough Vibram outsole helps separate these boots from the pack.
These boots aren’t quite a pair of L.L. Bean boots made to brave the snow, but for days and evenings when you’re not trudging through a blizzard, these Mark Albert boots should do more than just fine. The relatively sleek profile is offset by a durable Vibram outsole for extra grip on slushy streets, while the rich kudu leather pairs quite nicely with casual style picks like slim faded denim and your favorite henley. All of this is to say, these boots assuredly combine form and function quite handsomely, without a doubt. And when you’re hunting down a pair of the best boots for winter, that’s exactly what you need, is it not?
And if there’s a reason why this rugged, classic jacket looks familiar, that’s because, well, it is — this beauty draws inspiration from Pacific Northwester work jackets, and features reinforced stitching at key stress points to live up to that promise. In short, it’s one of the best work jackets out there, packed with six exterior pockets to bolster your EDC potential accordingly. Heck, even the copper oxide shank buttons found on the Flint and Tinder Waxed Drifter Jacket are up to the challenge of repeated wear through winter weather. My suggestion? Grab your favorite henley and your favorite flannel shirt, throw on some tough camp pants and rugged leather boots, then get ready for whatever winter throws your way.
