The Friday Read: The Todd Snyder Summer Sale, Tag Heuer’s New Watch & The Best Corduroy Shorts

My friends, it’s proven another busy, whirlwind week, and we’ve got plenty of ground to cover in today’s Friday Read, so let’s get right to it. I’m going to start things off in proper fashion, of course, by recommending one of the best menswear sales to shop right now: That’d be the Todd Snyder Summer Sale, which offers standout savings on some of the best menswear essentials around.

You won’t want to miss those savings, and you’d also do well to check out yesterday’s post on the best new polo to shop for the season at hand. These are the sort of style picks I’ll be shopping for on my own this weekend as I kick back and relax in Brooklyn (helped along by plenty of coffee and craft beer, of course). Be sure to follow along on my Instagram to keep up with the fun — the rest of today’s Friday Read is below, of course. Cheers, folks!

  • Now, I’m a huge fan of a refined, versatile watch, which is why it was such a treat to write up my latest feature for Maxim — head over to the site ASAP to read about and shop the new Tag Heuer Carrera Red Dial, with words by yours truly. Talk about a stunner of a timepiece, ehh?
  • A guy’s wardrobe assuredly needs options when it comes to summer style, and that includes your rotation of stylish, lightweight shorts. With that in mind, I wrote all about a retro style pick that’s made a major comeback as of late: The best corduroy shorts for the season. Head over to SPY to check ’em out, my friends.
  • I mentioned it earlier, but consider this a proper introduction to one of the best men’s polos from one of the country’s best menswear designers — Todd Snyder, of course. Check out yesterday’s blog post ASAP, folks.

If you ask me, those picks will round out today’s Friday Read nicely, will they not? Here’s to starting your weekend in style — be sure to check back here for this weekend’s Style Pick of the Week, too. Cheers!
