The Friday Read: New HELM Sneakers, A New Watch from UNCRATE & The Best Fall Jacket

HELM Cole Sneakers

Rugged, hiking boot-inspired sneakers that’ll offer plenty of fall wearability.

Thank you, my friends, for joining us for another edition of The Friday Read, where we’re starting things off with the right *step* for the weekend. I’m talking, naturally, about the excellent, brand-new HELM Boots Cole Sneakers as seen above. That’s right — the makers of some of your favorite boots (as covered here on the blog!) are launching the brand’s first pair of sneakers, and it’s fitting that they’re a nice hybrid between sneakers and boots. I love the HELM Cole Sneakers in rich wheat leather, and I dig the hiking-style speed lacing and the versatile high-top construction. The best new sneakers for fall? Very possibly. Remember, you can get $50 off your first order at HELM, plus free shipping. So, that’s my recommended footwear pick for many a weekend ahead. Onward to the rest of the weekend. And yes, another reminder to check out my Tuesday-and-Saturday newsletter if you just can’t get enough of what we’ve got going on here. The Style Guide In Brief won’t let you down. 

Frank And Oak

As for me, I’m still enjoying a bit of R&R (call it a working vacation) visiting my parents in Florida — talk about a much-needed break. We’ve been able to hit the beach for some socially distanced sunshine, we’ve made plenty of trips to support local craft brewery Point Ybel Brewing (get the Kitten’s Paw, a light and refreshing hoppy pils!) and I’ve been able to work on features for the likes of Maxim.com (including a piece on the best leather sneakers) and GearMoose, naturally. I’ll be headed back to New York in the coming days, but have really loved being able to rest and relax down here. Hopefully, your weekend is filled with plenty of menswear, plenty of time to kick back, and perhaps some listening to the new album by The Killers. Cheers to the weekend, my friends.

See Now, Buy Now: Lace Up These Rugged Taylor Stitch Boots Heading into Fall

The Moto Boot in Golden Brown Waxed Suede | Taylor Stitch…

Some of the coolest, best men’s boots for early fall — made with uncompromising quality in mind, at that.

It’s nearly the end of August, it’s almost Labor Day … that means, as much as you might not believe it, it’s time to start gearing up for fall, and it’s an even better time to get some of the best boots for men via one of your favorite brands. That is to say, I hope the all-American style gurus at San Francisco-based Taylor Stitch are one of your favorite brands, and if not, picking up the Taylor Stitch Moto Boots is as good a chance as any to get properly acquainted. I’ve certainly been a longtime fan of the brand, from its stylish indigo jeans and expertly cut polos to, naturally, the best Oxford shirt. And on the footwear front, Taylor Stitch has done as great a job as any brand out there at making high-quality, craftsmanship-focused footwear to pair with its full line of menswear (including the tough boots seen at the top of the page). The specs are one-of-a-kind, as is the construction and design process — let’s dive on in.

SHOP: The Taylor Stitch Moto Boots in Golden Brown Waxed Suede

Pin on His Closet

Lace up these absurdly tough men’s boots, then get yourself ready for fall.

It all starts with a team of artisans in León, Mexico, a locale renowned for its footwear factories and high-quality footwear. In that regard, the Taylor Stitch Moto Boots start with tough waxed suede designed to fight the elements and age nicely the more you wear ’em. The Vibram mini-lug sole provides traction and toughness, while a natural leather midsole and storm welt offer up sturdy toughness, too.

Once you’ve stepped into these stylish leather boots, you’re looking at a leather-lined insole for comfort, and antique brass hardware for a tough, laced-up finish. The moto boot profile means these are going to wear nicely with slim Taylor Stitch chinos, rugged denim or tough chore pants in equal measure. Up top, these rugged leather boots team nicely with your favorite style essentials, from a classic Taylor Stitch Oxford shirt to one of the brand’s rugged henleys — or really, anything else you can dream up (you can be sure they’ll wear nicely with an indigo denim Western shirt, among other picks, for example). To get into the spirit of early fall, you need the best boots on the market — start here, and your ensembles are only bound to get better as the season rolls on.

Style Pick of the Week: Taylor Stitch California Chambray Shirt

Taylor Stitch California Chambray Shirt

One of two stylish chambray shirts from the Taylor Stitch Essentials Collection.

If you follow the blog regularly — and I sure hope you do — you’ll know that we’ve been talking this month about Taylor Stitch, and the Taylor Stitch Essentials Collection. More to the point, we’ve been talking about the kind of pieces from the standout San Francisco retailer that just work, regardless of the season. That’s no more true than right now, with the Taylor Stitch California Chambray Shirt — as we move through August into September and beyond, you need one of the best chambray shirts in your rotation, and you need to be shopping the Taylor Stitch Essentials Collection.

Ladies and gentlemen, this rugged chambray shirt just so happens to be even better than you might expect, for one. It’s a workhorse daily shirt for day-to-night wear. Whether you pick it up in Blue Everyday Chambray or Charcoal Everyday Chambray, I think you’ll quickly find you’ll have plenty of ways to wear it right off the bat (yes, even during these socially distanced times). Bonfires, beach visits, day trips and to-go beer runs … this is the chambray shirt you need. We’ll get into more of that in a second, though — you don’t get one of the most versatile men’s shirts without first making it to exacting standards. That’s what the brand has done with the Taylor Stitch California Chambray Shirt, and a fine job they’ve done indeed.

SHOP: The Taylor Stitch California Chambray Shirt

Taylor Stitch California Chambray Shirt - Charcoal | Garmentory

You can’t go wrong with either Blue or Charcoal when it comes to this classic chambray shirt from Taylor Stitch.

This classic chambray shirt checks all the right boxes when it comes to durable construction and design, from the use of organic cotton chambray to the tailored fit and higher armhole. The higher armhole gives you a cleaner look while still allowing you to rock this chambray shirt on its own or layered up atop, say, a Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Tee. Double-needle construction and bar-tacked finishing at stress points both ensure this rugged shirt won’t give out on you, even as you traverse the great outdoors this fall.

If you haven’t yet tried a Taylor Stitch chambray shirt, or you’re familiar with brands like J. Crew and its lauded chambray shirt, this is one heck of a change of pace — it’s a step up in rugged quality and dependability, for starters. Better still? You can wear your new favorite shirt with slim Taylor Stitch chinos or the brand’s selvedge denim with ease. How great is that? If you end up giving the Taylor Stitch California Chambray Shirt a try, be sure to give me a shout on Twitter. Happy shopping out there, folks. Thanks for reading!

Specifically, the San Francisco retailer’s chinos, which are, simply put, your new favorite pair of pants (and some of the best chinos for men, to boot). These are a pair of chinos I first reviewed back in 2015, if you can believe it, and it’s no exaggeration to say Taylor Stitch chinos have only gotten better and at the same time … maintained the same incredible quality and rigorous standards. Is that an exaggeration? Not even close — wait ’til you see all the stops they’ve pulled out for the latest iteration, from versatile design to quality construction (including organic cotton). In fact, you can get these organic cotton chinos in a plethora of colors via the Taylor Stitch Essentials Collection, from the timeless British Khaki to the neutral Ash to crisp Navy and of course, an even cooler shade of Olive. Details like soft brushed fabric, custom brass hardware and interior vintage map pocket detailing make these some of the coolest men’s pants, period.

And the fits? Absolutely excellent, from the roomier-but-still-tailored Democratic Chinos (slightly tapered below the knee and roomier through the thigh) to the slim-but-not-too-tight Slim Chinos. Seriously, these are a truly revelatory pair of stylish men’s chinos that every guy needs to own. That’s certainly going out on a limb, but I promise, it’s not too much (if you’ve tried the brand out, you know). And if you haven’t? Take a shot with the Taylor Stitch Organic Cotton Chinos just once, and you just might want to fill your closet with a pair in every color. It seems pretty fitting they come from the stellar Taylor Stitch Essentials Collection — they’re as crucial to have in your wardrobe for early fall (and beyond) as anything else you can dream up.

The Jack in White Everyday Oxford - Classic Men's Clothing…

Through the Essentials Collection by Taylor Stitch, you can also get this shirt in crisp white.

It’s got all the hallmarks of a classic men’s shirt, from an agreeable tailored fit (Taylor Stitch shirts come in chest sizing), plus the right build and design. That means the collar on this classic Oxford shirt has a pleasant roll and shape, and it looks great tucked in or worn on its own with selvedge denim or Taylor Stitch chinos (naturally). You can also roll those sleeves up, or pair up the Taylor Stitch Jack Oxford Shirt with a navy cotton blazer when the occasion calls for you to go slightly dressier (say, for a Zoom call).

A stylish Oxford shirt is kind of like the amped-up equivalent of your go-to T-shirt — when you want to look great without going over-the-top, you can readily turn toward the Taylor Stitch Jack Oxford Shirt (yes, even with chino shorts and classic canvas sneakers, as I’ve been wearing mine). Heck, pair it up with nearly any other piece in the Taylor Stitch Essentials Collection, and you’ve got yourself a go-anywhere outfit for these socially distanced times. Try it out & let me know what you think.

Taylor Stitch Cuyama Jacket

Pre-fund this leather jacket right now — it’s some of the best outerwear on the market.

It’s here, it’s official, and you need it in your shopping cart: The Taylor Stitch Cuyama Jacket is perhaps the best leather jacket of the moment, done up in rich Cognac leather akin to a delicious spirit for your bar cart. Right now, you can get $200 off this standout men’s leather jacket when you pre-fund it — how’s that for a Sunday Sale? We just talked yesterday about the Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Tee — one of the best T-shirts out there — but it’s time to turn back towards one of our favorite menswear brands for today’s offering. Taylor Stitch certainly has plenty of experience in the leather jacket game (see the Moto Jacket), but the Cuyama Jacket is even better. The silhouette itself is based on a secondhand shop find, and the brand has brought it into the modern age with a timeless reboot. But — and this is crucial — you can only get this deal through the Taylor Stitch Workshop for a limited time. 

SHOP: Get 20 Percent Off the Taylor Stitch Cuyama Jacket 

In fact, that’s what allows the brand to offer up great pricing. Pre-fund the Taylor Stitch Cuyama Jacket early and knock 20 percent off the eventual retail price — easy as that. It’s an incredibly rugged leather jacket you’ll have for years, featuring buttery-soft Cognac cowhide leather designed to age remarkably. Cotton twill lining rounds out the body of the jacket, while corduroy cuff and collar detailing adds some old-school appeal. Natural dark horn corozo buttons drive home refinement and attention to detail, while “cellar door” side pockets provide space for your everyday carry essentials. Like a glass of fine Cognac, this leather jacket is going to perform even better when aged over time. That’s the way it should be, after all.

Style Pick of the Week: Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Tee

A seriously cool, essential tee for all your summer style needs.

As we move into August, one thing is pretty clear to me — if you don’t yet have one of the best men’s T-shirts, it’s time you snagged one ASAP from the good folks at Taylor Stitch, especially from the Taylor Stitch Essentials Collection. Whether you pick up the one-of-a-kind Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Tee in the excellent Dusty Clay color as seen above, or go with a classic white tee, it’s hard to misstep — very, very difficult to misstep, as it were. Naturally, this exceptionally stylish T-shirt fits right in with the Taylor Stitch Essentials Collection, and it’s available with just enough time left in the summer to get some good wear out of it (although who said you can’t wear your new favorite tee all year long, ehh?) What makes this T-shirt so different? As ever, it starts with the small stuff — or in this case, the not-so-small stuff. You see, Taylor Stitch continues to go the extra mile when it comes to being sustainable and stylish, so they’re making one of the best T-shirts for men using a unique blend of upcycled cotton and recycled polyester in a heavier 8oz. fabric construction. That makes it the type of tee you can wear on your own or layered accordingly beneath a rugged denim jacket or a chambray shirt — that’s just to start, though.

The Natural color makes this Taylor Stitch tee one of the coolest T-shirts for men.

The Dusty Clay or Natural colorways are your author’s favorites when it comes to the Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Tee — either could be worn easily with faded light wash denim and your favorite chukka boots, or else with slim tan chinos and white canvas sneakers. This is the kind of cool T-shirt you really can throw on and forget about (aside from when you get compliments on it, of course). The fully-taped shoulder seams offer durable construction and long-lasting wearability, whether you chose to rock the Taylor Stitch Heavy Bag Tee for back patio beers or an upstate bonfire (or both!). The well-made pocket adds a bit of visual interest and some space for any smaller EDC essentials (heck, use it to carry a titanium pen as you work on your next workshop project). When the weather starts to get chilly this summer, or when you need to layer up with a rugged flannel shirt come fall and winter, this is quite simply one of the best T-shirts you can buy. Check it out for yourself and let me know your thoughts on Twitter.
