How is your summer rolling along, friends? In need of new summer sneakers? Step into the weekend with the YORK Athletics Mfg. Henry Low Sneakers as seen above. With any luck, you can wear those stylish sneakers to either A) Get a workout in or B) start to check things off your summer to-do list, from festivals to craft beer tastings & summer travel. If you’ve attended a music festival or still have one on your radar, perhaps my music festival style tips ought to do the trick (Think: Rugged and casual, not sloppy).

OK, now onto business — what’s on your weekend agenda? For me, it’s a rather packed one in Brooklyn — tonight marks the second night in a row I’ll be at my favorite music venue in NYC, the famed Brooklyn Steel! The occasion? A second show in a row by my second-favorite band, Local Natives! If you recall, I trekked to Portland earlier this spring to see this excellent indie rock band play a barnburner of a show behind the new album “Violet Street,” and I even met lead singer Taylor Rice out in PDX! And, last night was the first of a two-night run showing off those same tracks in Brooklyn, and with a varied setlist and stellar live sound, it was everything I thought it would be! So, if you want to follow along with tonight’s fun, join me on Instagram. The rest of my weekend is set to include a fun craft beer tour by bike with friends in Queens — and hopefully, some rest & some work on my Instagram! Again, if you care to join me on another social media platform, it’s appreciated. Now, I’ve got some work to do before the weekend. Cheers!
- It’s high time you started off summer the right way — with the best new summer style essentials for the season, of course. In fact, I covered 15 of ’em (15!) for my pals at GearMoose, from a new henley to a stellar adventure watch. Shop more new gear here, while you’re at it.
- Speaking of standout new gear, well, the fine folks behind the ongoing Timex x Todd Snyder partnership are at it again, via the Timex x Todd Snyder Welton Bi-Metal Watch. Read all about it via my latest for GearMoose — this is going to be your new favorite summer watch.
- As if things weren’t busy enough in this neck of the woods, I took some time away fro enjoying craft beer and live music (ha!) to cover the new Taylor Stitch Restitch Program for The Manual, a great way to both partake in heirloom-quality Taylor Stitch menswear while also giving your favorite Taylor Stitch essentials a chance at new life. Great work from a stellar brand.
With that, I’ll be closing up shop for the weekend (well, until tomorrow’s Style Pick of the Week, at least). Until then, I’d urge you to shop for your perfect summer T-shirt, or else find your new favorite pair of summer shoes. That’s all I’ve got today! Cheers.
