The Levi’s Made & Crafted Standard Shirt comes in a wide range of standout colors and patterns.

Helpfully, the¬†¬†Levi’s Standard Shirt¬†is also far from your average, overly burly or baggy winter flannel shirt. The Standard Shirt is made from 100 percent cotton twill in a tailored fit, perfect for throwing on over a stylish graphic tee or a rugged winter henley in equal measure.¬† With a buttondown point collar and a left chest pocket, it’s got all the little details you’d expect to find in an easygoing casual shirt — again, it’s the type of classic men’s shirt you can wear under a tan herringbone blazer or with a classic shawl cardigan without missing a beat. It’s an unexpected style move from a timeless brand that’s best known for its denim, but I say … go for it. Perhaps the best news of all? The¬†Standard Shirt¬†is going to be a perfect complement when worn with slim Levi’s denim, especially the Levi’s 511 jeans (a personal favorite). Add a warm winter bomber jacket, throw on some beat-up black boots, and head to your favorite brewpub on a chilly weekend night. The¬†¬†Levi’s Standard Shirt¬†can do everything you ask of it, and then some.

Rugged boots that’ll last all winter.

On the hunt for the perfect winter boots? Yes, that’s right — we said “perfect.”‘ Perfection is a very high bar to clear, admittedly, and yet there are certain brands, like Red Wing Heritage, that continue to strive toward that aim by sticking to what they know best. Now, we previously talked about the¬†Red Wing Heritage Classic Moc Toe Boots¬†as seen at the top of the page (in this post), but we’re back again to dive deeper today — they’re just that good.¬†That’s surely lofty praise, but a classic brand like Red Wing Heritage can back it up — and it’s all the better that the Red Wing Heritage Classic Moc Toe Boots are but the latest release from the lauded company to land on your wish list of men’s style essentials.

Well, my friends … the Classic Moc Toe Boots from Red Wing fit right in with the brand’s lineup of stellar boots … yet they stand out quitely in their own, very pleasing way. Much like the equally rugged and winter-ready Red Wing Heritage Rover Boots, the¬†Classic Moc Toe Boots¬†are made to lace up and get to work, starting with the Traction Tred wedge outsole for durability and grip on icy winter surfaces. The use of Goodyear welt construction also adds another dimension of toughness — yes indeed, these could be the¬† perfect winter boots.

And lest you expect anything but the best from¬†Red Wing Heritage, these rugged moc toe boots are made with … yes, you guessed it — the brand’s iconic full-grain, oil-tanned leather, fashioned here into an incredible pair of everyday boots that you should wear as much as you can. What are my recommended pairings for the excellent¬†Red Wing Heritage Classic Moc Toe Boots? That’s pretty easy, I think. Start with expertly faded slim blue denim, add a classic henley and throw on a rugged shawl cardigan.

The ideal outer layer for comfort and functionality as you travel.

If you’re anything like me, maybe you’re hitting the road for winter travel soon (we’ve got Christmas next week, after all!). And maybe you’re wondering how to dress for winter travel? Well, I think I’ve got part of that equation solved for you — The Faherty Brand Atmosphere Jacket belongs on your top half for your next trip. The great thing about gear from Faherty Brand is that it’s at once easygoing yet functional, the perfect type of gear to grab and go as you dash off to the airport or to catch a train (or a bus, or an automobile?). And the Atmosphere Jacket is, helpfully, a two-for-one deal — much like the Faherty Brand Bondi Jacket, as featured recently on the blog. That kind of versatility can’t be topped.

Faherty Brand review

Layer up for winter travel with this Faherty Brand jacket.

That is to say, the¬†Atmosphere Jacket¬†wears like both a shirt and, well, a jacket, from the easy-to-layer fit to the 100 percent nylon construction. It’s a lightweight layer for the airport that’ll also insulate you from winter’s chill outside — that’s a major positive. The¬†Faherty Brand Atmosphere Jacket¬†uses channel quilting for extra warmth, too. In short: Throw on the¬†Faherty Brand Atmosphere Jacket¬†with a crisp white T-shirt and perfectly faded jeans for your next long flight. But Beau, isn’t it acceptable to wear slouchy sweats and a baggy hoodie to travel? Not so fast, my friend.

SHOP: The Faherty Brand Atmosphere Jacket 

No sir, the¬†Faherty Brand Atmosphere Jacket¬†(also available in Black and Navy) is exactly the travel style upgrade you need to make, regardless of where your plans might lead. While others are trying to just catch their connecting flight, wearing a warm & stylish layer like the¬†Atmosphere Jacket¬†might help you take on the day with a bit more polish. It’s as easy as throwing on a great coat — like the Atmosphere Jacket — and then upgrading your bottom half (again, perfectly faded jeans¬†are the way to go).¬†Plus, the¬†Atmosphere Jacket¬† features custom rubberized Faherty snap buttons and two front chest pockets for durability — and the perfect place to store your everyday carry essentials going through security! Bingo. And on chilly winter mornings when you get to your destination? Throw on the¬†Faherty Brand Atmosphere Jacket¬†and pair it with slim, tailored sweatpants¬†— and maybe the Huckberry Duck Boots — to grab a weekend coffee.
