Style Pick of the Week: Todd Snyder Midweight Pocket Sweatshirt – The Best Men’s Winter Sweatshirt

Midweight Pocket Sweatshirt in Antique Grey Mix

Is there any designer out there that does it better than Todd Snyder when it comes to taking classic menswear staples and then making them fresh and modern? It’s up for debate, but there’s no question that with the Todd Snyder Midweight Pocket Sweatshirt (part of the excellent Todd Snyder + Champion partnership), he’s done it once again. For nearly a decade now, the Iowa-born Snyder (one of my favorite designers and one of the country’s best menswear designers) has worked with top brands like Champion to redefine the menswear game, turning once-purely functional, rugged pieces like the crewneck sweatshirt into bona fide style statements. Now, I’ve written plenty of Todd Snyder reviews on sweatshirts just like this, but it’s always worth revisiting as things get better each year in terms of style and design.

That’s what makes the Todd Snyder + Champion collaboration so cool to see, given that it results in pieces you can wear far beyond the confines of the gym, like the Todd Snyder Midweight Pocket Sweatshirt. The specs are an homage to past, highly durable crewneck sweatshirts, including the 18oz. French terry fabric that’s been garment-dyed for extra softness. It’s also the perfect sort of layer to wear with anything, including a rugged Todd Snyder waxed trucker jacket or Todd Snyder’s quilted shirt jacket — it only gets better from there, though.

Midweight Pocket Sweatshirt in Dark Cobalt

The Todd Snyder Midweight Pocket Sweatshirt has plenty of features to love, including added visual details like a chest pocket (added by Snyder himself in the original design), plus the contrast V-stitching at the neck for both durability and an old-school throwback touch. Raglan sleeve stitching is also a throwback Champion design touch that helps cement just how cool the Todd Snyder Midweight Pocket Sweatshirt really is — what’s not to love about a throwback approach? The hits keep coming, so to speak, with the Todd Snyder Midweight Pocket Sweatshirt, which is available in a stunning and highly versatile 12 colors.

That means there’s a shade of the Todd Snyder Midweight Pocket Sweatshirt to match with just about anything in your wardrobe, be it laidback Todd Snyder sweatshorts in the warmer months or hard-wearing Japanese selvedge denim in the colder months. The Todd Snyder Midweight Pocket Sweatshirt is also fairly priced at under $100, making it a more-than-reasonable purchase when you consider that you can rock it under everything from a flannel shirt to a winter herringbone blazer. For classic style in casual and even business casual situations, make the Todd Snyder Midweight Pocket Sweatshirt your go-to winter style move.

Style Pick of the Week: Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Shirt Jacket – The Best Shirt Jacket for Winter to Shop Now

Italian Quilted Shirt Jacket in Grey Donegal

If you’ve been searching for one of the best winter layers and you haven’t yet found one, now is the right time to stock up on, well, one of the best shirt jackets for men. It’s mid-December, after all, and it’s time to amp up that outerwear rotation in a big way. That doesn’t mean reverting to a bulky parka just yet, though. And that’s why we’re here, of course, telling you all about the best men’s shirt jacket. It’s within your reach, and the Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Shirt Jacket is the proper pick for today, this weekend and the rest of winter.

It’s the sort of rugged wardrobe upgrade that the Iowa-born designer specializes in, be it finding a way to make the humble chambray shirt into the best men’s chambray shirt, or turning the classic waxed trucker jacket into one of the best men’s jackets, period. It’s true, and if you’ve never shopped Todd Snyder, then right now is actually an ideal time to start. But back to what makes the Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Shirt Jacket so exceptional. It all starts with, naturally, the fabric, which is a donegal wool blend available in a plethora of rich colors (more on that in a second).

Italian Quilted Shirt Jacket in Wool Tartan

In short, the Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Shirt Jacket is the perfect blend of premium style and materials, plus the rugged functionality you need in a winter layer. It’s lined with Italian nylon and features a poly filling, all the better for added warmth on the go. But it’s the exterior wool-blend fabric that really sets the Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Shirt Jacket from the pack, making this shirt jacket more similar to a traditional winter blazer than an overly technical shirt jacket. It’s the Grey Donegal wool option that should prove most versatile when you want to score a shirt jacket (or “shacket”) you can dress up with tailored charcoal wool trousers, perhaps atop a Todd Snyder turtleneck for an eye-catching blend of high-low style. Yes indeed, this quilted shirt jacket is both technically savvy and stylish in equal measure. It could just be your new favorite winter layer, whether worn with a thermal shirt, a rugged henley or an Oxford shirt.

Beyond just the dependable style of the Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Shirt Jacket‘s Grey Donegal option, it’s also available in the eye-catching Tartan Plaid as shown above. But if you want the most bang for your buck (this shacket retails for $598 at Todd Snyder), then Grey Donegal is your best bet. Either way, the Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Shirt Jacket is one of the coolest, most reliable and rugged layers on the market. Happy shopping, my friends.

Style Pick of the Week: Todd Snyder English Waxed Dylan Jacket – The Best Trucker Jacket for Seasonal Layering

There’s the popular adage about leaving something better off if “it ain’t broke,” and then there’s the Todd Snyder approach to menswear, which involves taking the brand’s most popular menswear essentials and making them even better. That’s what the famed NYC menswear designer has done here with the Todd Snyder English Waxed Dylan Jacket, a hard-wearing upgrade of the famed Todd Snyder Dylan Jacket, traditionally made from soft suede. The newest version of the iconic trucker jacket, slimmed down and made modern by the inimitable designer, is both rugged and refined, as many of Snyder’s best pieces are (take the Todd Snyder x Champion collaboration, which turns athletic wear into styles cool enough to wear to the office).

The Todd Snyder English Waxed Dylan Jacket is just the latest and greatest upgrade to hit the brand’s digital shelves, and it’s worth calling out for several reasons, first and foremost among them the fact that the waxed cotton iteration of the Todd Snyder Dylan Jacket is nearly 50 percent less than the original Dylan Jacket. Is your interest piqued yet? It should be, but the list of pros goes on and on.

The Todd Snyder English Waxed Dylan Jacket checks off every box you’d expect from a designer like Todd Snyder, starting with the tough-as-nails construction. It’s made in England using 100 percent cotton that’s waxed and treated by British Millerain, makers of some of the finest weather-ready fabrics on the planet. The Olive color is highly versatile and just so happens to be a perfect shade for fall: Pair it with indigo denim, tan chinos or even dark brown or navy corduroy trousers with ease. Plus, it’s finished off with a blanket lining for added warmth, while the contrasting moleskin collar calls to mind other classic British waxed jackets.

Yes indeed, the Todd Snyder English Waxed Dylan Jacket has plenty going for it, including that low price (compared to the original), and the refined details you only find at Todd Snyder. Last but not least, because it’s a trucker jacket, it’s a piece of outerwear that’s for more than just show — use the front button and side hip pockets to carry your EDC with ease. When you need it the most (like on a rainy fall day or a chilly winter morning), the Todd Snyder English Waxed Dylan Jacket steps right up and delivers. Cheers to the season ahead, my friends.

The Tuesday Steal: This Todd Snyder Chambray Shirt is a Fall Style Classic

Japanese Sunfaded Chambray Button Down Shirt

How many fall style essentials is too many to have in your closet? Or rather, can you ever have enough certifiable seasonal classics like one of the best chambray shirts? My take on the matter is that no, no sir, you can never have enough fall menswear picks like the Todd Snyder Sunfaded Chambray Shirt. While it’s not as much of a steal, per se, as shopping the Todd Snyder Sale section in its own right, this classic chambray shirt is actually a great pick-up, particularly considering how much wear you can get out of this undeniably cool, rugged-yet-versatile men’s shirt. You could call it one of the best men’s shirts, period, or one of the best chambray shirts, but the point remains: Although it’ll set you back at a rather hefty $178 at Todd Snyder, this is a pick-up that remains a steal. In fact, that’s perhaps best epitomized by the fact that it’s been a hot seller online for the famed menswear designer, so do yourself a favor and stock up right now on a shirt that could become your new favorite shirt for fall (and well beyond that, naturally).

What makes this shirt such a steal even at that higher price tag? It all comes down to a quality design and an effortlessly cool build, starting with what you might call “the good stuff” — that’d be the Japanese cotton chambray fabric. It’s soft but not too soft, lived-in but not worn out, and made with great care in Portugal. If that’s not enough to convince you to invest in the best chambray shirt out there, well, there’s plenty more reasons to consider.

Japanese Sunfaded Chambray Button Down Shirt

The cut of the Todd Snyder Sunfaded Chambray Shirt is also such that you can wear it in a dressier manner (underneath a wool or navy cotton blazer, for example), but you can also rock it readily with laidback style staples, like slim blue jeans and a pair of rugged leather boots or even canvas high-top sneakers. The Todd Snyder Sunfaded Chambray Shirt also wears well with tan chinos and low-top leather sneakers, all the better for easygoing weekend or casual office style. You should certainly take the chance to wear this classic chambray shirt to the office or out to coffee, because again, it deserves to be worn as much as possible.

HELM Boots

The Todd Snyder Sunfaded Chambray Shirt features small details that make it quite cool to wear on its own, like the button chest pocket. When you’re done wearing your go-to seasonal shirt, use the locker loop to hang it for a wrinkle-free experience, as the retailer notes. However you choose to wear it, and however often you wear it (as much as possible, if you’ll recall!), the Todd Snyder Sunfaded Chambray Shirt isn’t going to let you down. That makes it the perfect Tuesday Steal. Happy shopping, folks.

Folks, Father’s Day will be here before you know it, and it’s with that in mind that I’m recommending you splurge, invest in the best and get your dad (or any father figure in your life) one of the coolest denim jackets for men around. Dad deserves some extra appreciation this year, and while I typically don’t recommend too many wallet-busting purchases, I’ve got to step up to the plate and vouch for my new favorite denim jacket. It’s not just any typical denim jacket (although I love my indigo denim jacket as much as the next guy). No sir, the fast-selling and much-loved Todd Snyder x Legent Bourbon Selvedge Denim Jacket is an incredible way to splurge on Dad this year, to say the very least. He deserves it, right? No doubt about it. You’ll have to act quickly if you want to get your hands on this bourbon-inspired denim jacket, but trust me when I say that it’ll be worth it.

Like all things Todd Snyder, one of the country’s finest menswear designers, it’s a masterclass in craftsmanship, rugged style and timeless appeal.

Style Pick of the Week: Todd Snyder 5-Pocket Chinos

I tend to ring in spring and summer in several different ways, from cold beer to a stylish T-shirt in my rotation, and you know what pairs well with both of those essentials? A pair of the best men’s chinos, a seasonal staple that can actually be worn in any season — but one that’s at its best when worn as part of your new spring and summer wardrobe. And Todd Snyder’s 5-Pocket Chinos are the latest and greatest pair up for consideration. The best chinos for men are versatile — these are highly versatile (note the slim fit and jean-like construction). The best chinos for men are highly stylish — note the cool range of colors.

And the best chinos for men are, well, these ones. Just as Todd Snyder makes one of the best overshirts for men or one of the most essential cashmere sweaters out there, so too does he come through with an essential pair of classic pants for men, the kind you’re going to want to wear all summer long. And whether it’s the casual-yet-sharp design (similar to denim) or the 11 colorways from which to choose from, you’re getting what just might be considered your new favorite pair of pants.

SHOP: The Todd Snyder Slim-Fit 5-Pocket Chinos

As with all things Todd Snyder, it all starts with the fabric and construction. In this case, the Todd Snyder Slim-Fit 5-Pocket Chinos start with a cotton-polyester-lycra fabric blend, which means they’ve got enough stretch to wear as you work from home or explore a favorite part of your hometown (yes, you can and should wear them to either the coffee shop or the brewery, folks!). The stretch cotton twill fabric is also garment-dyed for a nice, comfortable feel right out of the box.

And they wouldn’t be some of the best chinos for men without a cleanly tailored fit, the kind that looks great with everything from your favorite T-shirt to a classic denim shirt. Heck, you can even wear these tailored chinos more casually with one of the best hoodies for men — how great is that sort of versatility, ehh? The fact that they’re built like jeans is crucial in adding to that utility — wear ’em with everything from canvas sneakers to your favorite chukka boots, too. Of course, it’s going to be tough to decide between the cool-as-heck colorways on hand, including Surplus Olive as seen above. Whichever pair you go with though, you’re getting some excellent bang for your buck (they’re $148 at Todd Snyder), and the type of go-anywhere style potential you crave. Who could say no to that?
