What with Black Friday watch deals and Cyber Monday shopping quickly approaching, now seems like as good a time as any to shop and save on a bit of everything, including one of the best watches for men — at least, that’s what your neighborhood style writer thinks. Today’s deal is certainly the right way to upgrade your everyday carry via one of the most sustainable watches on the market, and it’s yet another offering from Swedish watchmaker TRIWA. They’re a minimal, stylish watchmaker and a new blog favorite, and you’re going to enjoy saving 20 percent on one of the best men’s watches on the market (hint: It’s shown at the top of the page!).
The TRIWA Ocean Plastic Watch has plenty going for it, starting with the fact that it’s developed using material made from recycled ocean plastic. The effect is a watch that’s lightweight, durable and eco-conscious (and of note, this watch is marked down to $135 from $169). How’s that for one of the best affordable watches, ehh?
The surprisingly rugged TRIWA Ocean Plastic Watch is also designed in partnership with ocean conservation organization Sea Shepherd, perhaps even more important than its utilitarian look and feel. That means that 15 percent of profits from the sale of the TRIWA Ocean Plastic Watch go towards Sea Shepherd’s efforts, as worthy a cause as any.
For good measure, the dependable TRIWA Ocean Plastic Watch boasts a handsome blue ocean plastic woven strap, a striking dial design featuring the Sea Shepherd logo, and a whopping 330 feet of water resistance. Oh, and one final time: Shop now and look forward to saving 20 percent on one of the best men’s watches (and one of the most eco-friendly watches out there, to boot). It’s just that easy today, folks. Do good and look great in the process.
The search for the best sustainable menswear is never really over, is it? Not in my book, it isn’t — not if you want to dress in sustainable fashion while looking great, and you can even doing that while wearing one of the best polos for men. Yes, the once-preppy polo is now getting a bit of a cool, throwback-minded, breezy upgrade, at least in terms of looks, while also featuring some of the most eco-conscious fabric on the market. Yes indeed, when it comes to talking about one of the best men’s polos, I’m talking about the well-made Outerknown Roam Polo, a new spring style addition from one of the most sustainable menswear brands on the market.
The Outerknown Roam Polo is yet another standout addition to the brand’s lineup, designed by menswear aficionado John Moore and developed by both Moore and legendary surfer Kelly Slater. Perhaps you’ve had the chance to layer up with the brand’s more rugged cold-weather gear, like the famed Outerknown Blanket Shirt, but the Outerknown Roam Polo is an outstanding way to keep that sustainable focus rolling all year long — trust me on that.
Available in colors like Bright Navy and Green Night for an added dose of fresh spring style, the Outerknown Roam Polo is made from an eco-friendly blend of hemp and organic cotton — hemp is a fiber that actually regenerates soil as it grows, all the while without requiring a ton of water. The fact that you can find it put to good, very stylish use in the case of the Outerknown Roam Polo is a major added benefit to your wardrobe. Hemp and organic cotton should also prove softer than traditionally stuffy cotton pique, and again, that sustainability factor is essential when shopping for even more simple basics like the best polos for men. I’d certainly count the Outerknown Roam Polo among that crop (pun intended).
Best of all, the Outerknown Roam Polo features small yet high-quality added touches like mother of pearl buttons — two of them, for a classic, casual touch. Subtle logo embroidery at the left sleeve keeps the Outerknown Roam Polo squarely in timeless, not overly loud territory, while the straight hem and tailored fit should make it easy to wear this stylish men’s polo untucked with your favorite chinos and high-top sneakers all spring long. When you want to make a sustainable spring wardrobe upgrade ASAP, look right away to the good folks at Outerknown.
You already know Outerknown as a terrific resource for new gear like one of the best men’s flannel shirts, and you can assuredly trust that they wouldn’t sell anything of less than stellar quality through the Outerknown Outerworn Collection. The key to keep in mind with this assortment of pre-owned menswear? Outerknown carefully lays out the color, fit and style, plus the condition of each piece, ensuring you’re not taking a chance on an item that’s not in great shape. Would you have it any other way?
With the Outerknown Outerworn Collection, there are even seller notes and a photo of the item — again, it’s a careful process you can trust. The rotation of gear even includes a reversible puffer jacket, stylish tailored moleskin pants and even some women’s offerings, all the better to gift the eco-conscious lady in your life. As if all of that wasn’t enough, well, the deals within the Outerknown Outerworn Collection are pretty remarkable, dropping items well below $100 in a number of categories. There’s lots to sort through with this collection of stylish pre-owned menswear, so I’ll leave you to it. That being said, the Outerknown Outerworn Collection is a true must-shop if you want eco-conscious gear at great prices.
Layer up for the weekend with the best new spring jacket to buy right now — from Grayers,no less.
My friends, welcome to Friday, and to today’s Friday Read, no less. I had originally planned to be in Cincinnati on this very day for the second-ever edition of The National Homecoming, a standout fest curated by my favorite band — of course, The National. But the current state of the world means that fest is no more, so the best I can do is catch a livestream of The National in the meantime, and shop for some of the best new men’s gear. More importantly though, this weekend is Mother’s Day! Make sure you’re getting the ladies in your life something special — I like these Mother’s Day gift suggestions from Valet, as it were. Maybe you also feel like treating yourself, though? On that note, I’ve got my eye on that Grayers windbreaker seen at the top of the — it’s the Grayers Randolph Stretch Windbreaker, to be specific — for weekend adventures (social distancing required). How about you? If you’re going stir-crazy, perhaps the stylish spring jacket shown above can help you get out and about properly. After all, it’s not a spring adventure without one of the best spring jackets in tow, is it?
Let’s keep it rolling on the style and gear front. If you’re fortunate enough to have access to a pool or lake that still happens to be open (or heck, if you can get to the ocean), then this next post is going to be of interest to you (to say the least). Namely, I covered the best men’s swim trunks over at GearMoose, featuring brands like Flint and Tinder in the process. Get ready to hit the water (eventually), my friends.
Now, in the midst of all this craziness, I’d wager you’re still looking for ways to keep your style fresh and seasonally friendly. With that in mind, I’m going to direct you toward my ongoing series The List, covering the best new men’s gear for each and every season (and plenty of socially distanced occasions right now). It’s got everything you need to hang at home & explore on your own or with the family.
We’ll keep it focused on the blog here on last time before the weekend begins in earnest. Namely, if you need some stylish sneakers for the weekend, I’d suggest you check out GREATS Brand, and then take a good look at my guide covering how to wear white sneakers this summer. Even in these casual times at home, it still pays to look good. Well, my friends. That’s going to wrap up today’s Friday Read. Thanks for stopping by, and have a safe weekend!
A cozy, rugged jacket you’ll want to wear all winter long.
Bundling up can definitely be done in style, my friends, especially with one of the best sustainable brands on the market. Striking the right balance between cozy and comfortable, rugged-yet-stylish, and also sustainable-yet-fashionable … well, it’s a tough act to conquer. And yet, that’s what the good folks at Outerknown have done with the Outerknown Paz Cord Trucker, a perfectly rugged winter jacket that delivers all the warmth and style you could possibly need. Crucially, it’s also a refreshing change of pace from a bulky winter parka or a thermal puffer jacket (although you very well might need both of those in your rotation, too). The Outerknown Paz Cord Trucker is an ideal jacket when you want to toe the line between office-ready (as a commute-friendly layer atop a crisp Oxford shirt and navy knit tie) or outdoor-minded (worn with tough chore pants to truly take on the elements). It’s the kind of workhorse jacket you won’t regret having when it comes time to head out on a Friday night — the classic trucker jacket silhouette is timeless and nearly speaks for itself. Yes indeed, the Outerknown Paz Cord Trucker is stylish without going too far over the top, and that’s exactly the kind of jacket we so love here at The Style Guide. Oh, and in terms of sustainable style? Outerknown continues to take the cake.
Outerknown crucially focuses on amping up the classics with materials like organic cotton and a focus on using less water in its production — the result is gear that’s as eco-conscious as it is stylish. Case in point: The hemp they’ve used to make this corduroy fabric is both durable and yet perhaps the perfect crop, given that it strengthens the soil in which it’s grown. Heck, the polyester fill and sherpa lining are also made from recycled materials — when’s the last time you heard of a rugged winter jacket that can do all of that at once? Oh, and it goes without saying that the Outerknown Paz Cord Trucker also looks as great as you’d expect — wear this tough trucker jacket atop your favorite henley and a classic flannel shirt for plenty of warmth and winter-friendly style, or keep the Outerknown Paz Cord Trucker handy with a timeless chambray shirt and expertly faded denim. The trucker jacket styling is akin to that of a trusted denim jacket, so you can rest assured that it wears with most of your closet with relative ease — and that’s what you want from one of the best winter jackets, after all. Bundling up with sustainable style in mind? That’s as good as it gets for winter.
