This jacket is also available in a seriously cool Olive Harris Tweed.

It’s seriously as cool as it gets (style-wise), given that the fabric is classic Harris Tweed, known around these parts as “the good stuff,” if you will. And the pattern is striking and classic, ready to be paired with slim grey wool trousers and your favorite Chelsea boots just as easily as you can wear it with a Todd Snyder henley and some Todd Snyder selvedge denim. Of course, this classic bomber jacket isn’t cheap, and it’ll run you nearly $650 at Todd Snyder. But the upshot of all of this is that you’ll feel like a million bucks every time you wear it, and you can even team it with casual style staples like a Todd Snyder + Champion crewneck sweatshirt. How’s that for versatility in action? Yes indeed, your new favorite jacket is here in time to shake up winter. Act accordingly, folks.

#OOTD: Here’s How to Dress in Refined Style This Winter

Did the end of 2020 creep up on you? I know it certainly did for me, but that’s all the better as we turn the page on this year (in style, of course) and look toward 2021. With that being said, you’re probably looking for way to shake up your style in the new year (or perhaps, you’re looking for ways to dress for New Year’s Eve). Well, you’re in luck today, my friends. Think of this #OOTD as style inspiration for New Year’s Eve (even if your plans look a heck of a lot different this year), or think of it as a nice guide when it comes to dressing in refined style for the rest of winter. Either way, we’ve got you covered. The key pieces here, as you’ll see, really do a lot of the heavy lifting for the season, from the classic suede bomber jacket shown below to a few Todd Snyder menswear essentials (flannel shirt and slim corduroy pants among them). Of course, it wouldn’t be a festive winter #OOTD without versatile leather Chelsea boots, a seasonally friendly beer and your best stainless steel watch. Heck, even if you choose to hang at home on Zoom for New Year’s Eve or other special occasions, this look is refined enough to shake things up on the daily. To see how I’m taking on the winter in style, be sure to check out my Instagram.

A classic suede jacket, a tried-and-true flannel shirt and corduroy pants … what’s not to love, ehh?

Once again, no matter what occasion comes across your social calendar these days, I hope you’ll find these pieces useful and highly versatile. There aren’t all that many places where a classic suede bomber jacket won’t fit right in stylishly, so it’s a wise winter outerwear pick-up regardless. And even if you’re only hanging out on Zoom for your next gathering, a stylish flannel shirt is a proper seasonal style move, made all the better with slim-fit corduroys for a bit of refined-yet-comfortable style to ring in the new year, the weekend or a Zoom happy hour. When it does come time to step out into the elements, make sure you’re outfitted accordingly with leather Chelsea boots that can take a beating and look great in the process this winter. A pair of the best men’s socks are all the more crucial when it comes time to throw on your favorite dress boots (or slip them off, for that matter). This look also gets one heck of a shot in the arm with one of the best stainless steel watches out there, no questions asked. Bring along the Taylor Stitch Wine Key to pop open the bubbly or simply pop open another bottle of your choice beer (in this case, the Sierra Nevada Celebration should get the job done nicely). Accent it all with the Oars + Alps Face Kit to help you look and feel your best, and you’ve got the perfect #OOTD for refined-yet-laidback style situations aplenty. Happy shopping, my friends!

The Friday Read: Christmas Day, New Beckett Simonon Boots & New Grooming Gear

Wishing you a merry and bright Christmas. Image courtesy of Huckberry.

My friends, we made it: It’s time for a very special, very merry edition of The Friday Read … yes, here on Christmas! Don’t worry, though: This post was in the hopper before I safely made my way down to Florida to see family. I hope wherever you are, you’re able to enjoy the day safely and in good health, perhaps from afar with family or with a close, safe “bubble” of loved ones. Now, because I’m in Florida, that means two things: We’ve been well-stocked the entire week on delicious craft beer from local brewery Point Ybel Brewing Company, makers of everything from a fantastic Oktoberfest to a slew of New England IPAs, a terrific Kolsch by the name of Bud Weisberg and, well, plenty more. It’s truly a treat to be down here with great beer and sunshine close at hand. And second of all, it’s just great to be able to see family and take a bit of time off (just a bit, though — back to work next week!).

I hope Santa has already fulfilled some of your Christmas wish list items from sites like Huckberry and Bespoke Post — how about it, ehh? As for me, I’ve had my eye on some choice Christmas gifts from my favorite brands, like Todd Snyder. I also went ahead and asked Santa for Matthew McConaughey’s new book and of course, the 2020 deluxe reissue of “Pleased To Meet Me,” the iconic 1987 record by one of my favorite bands, The Replacements. Beyond the gifts under the tree, I’m thankful for the health and safety of my family and friends, and of course, the opportunity to see my family (just my mom, dad and sister — negative tests all around). At any rate, I’m also thankful for your continued support here! And to that end, I’ve got just a few choice menswear picks that might make this day a bit more merry and bright. We’re back at it tomorrow with another Style Pick of the Week, so be sure to join us then. In the meantime, who’s up for some eggnog?

Beckett Simonon Dowler Boots

Boots from Beckett Simonon worth buying this holiday season.

  • There’s never quite been a better time to upgrade your collection of the best men’s leather boots than right now, and I know just the brand to help you out if you find yourself in possession of some holiday cash or a seasonal bonus. Head to Beckett Simonon to get nothing less than your new favorite boots, including the refined-yet-rugged Beckett Simonon Dowler Boots shown above. Talk about stepping into the new year in style, ehh?
  • If you happen to be braving cold weather, let me point you in the direction of your new favorite cardigan. I wrote about a classic and casual-yet-versatile Grayers shawl cardigan on the blog earlier this month, and it seems as fitting to me a layering option for chilly temperatures as any.
  • Let’s close out this brief edition of the Friday Read with something that truly gets to the heart of the meaning for the season. Our U.S. military members definitely deserve our respect and support, and Bravo Sierra Grooming goes above and beyond. They field-test the brand’s excellent line of grooming products (everything from deodorant to moisturizer and a solid cleanser) with military members in the field, and they also donate five percent of sales to the M.W.R. (which stands for Morale, Welfare and Recreation). It’s a crucial cause, and it helps that the brand gives back while making stellar grooming products — thanks to Bravo Sierra for the chance to test the full grooming line out recently! 

I’m going to be as brief as I can in wrapping this up before I let you get back to enjoying plentiful presents, coffee, brunch and more. In fact, I’ve got some holiday style inspiration for men in the form of this #OOTD that I think will come in mighty handy today. Regardless of where you are, enjoy the day and thank you for reading!

#OOTD: Here’s a New Way to Layer Up with A Shirt Jacket This Winter

Let’s talk winter layering in today’s #OOTD, shall we? To be more specific, let’s talk about how to layer up with a shirt jacket for the season ahead. Think of a shirt jacket like the versatile layer you didn’t know you needed, with the ability to be worn as an outer layer atop a henley (in the case of today’s #OOTD) or as a mid-layer in the right conditions and the right fit.It helps quite a lot if the shirt jacket in question is in fact one of the best shirt jackets for men, and that’s certainly the case with the rugged-yet-refined Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Liner Jackettoday’s featured pick and one heck of a well-made shirt jacket (or shacket, if you will). The rest of today’s gear picks certainly pull their own weight, too, from one of the best men’s henleys to some brand-new, incredibly well-made Filson indigo denim (just wait until you see ’em, folks). Of course, a rugged leather watch and a unique Taylor Stitch x Stetson hat do their fair share of lifting when it comes to both style and functionality. Taken altogether, this ensemble works quite well for rugged winter weekend adventures around town and on the trail, and of course, at an outdoor beer garden. Check it all out below, layer up accordingly and stay safe out there, folks.

A seriously cool, rugged-yet-versatile #OOTD for all your winter dressing occasions.

  • The Shirt Jacket: Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Liner Jacket, $268 — It all starts off with a crucial layer, one of the best shirt jackets for men that you’re apt to find these days.
  • The Henley: Buck Mason Pima Curved Hem Henley, $52 — A great winter #OOTD is nothing without a proper base layer, as in, one of the best men’s henleys on the market.
  • The Denim: Filson Rail-Splitter Jeans, $145 — Yes, that’s right. The makers of some of the best heritage gear on the planet are now making your new favorite jeans, guaranteed.
  • The Boots: FRYE Corver Chelsea Boots, $298 — Invest in the best with these expertly crafted leather boots, made for all kinds of tough winter weather.
  • The Belt: Billykirk No. 117 Mechanic’s Belt, $99 — The best accessories, like a rugged leather belt, really bring an outfit together, so act and shop accordingly.
  • The Watch: Luminox Field Automatic Day-Date Watch, $990 — Add in one of the best leather watches to really seal the deal on this stellar #OOTD, will ya?
  • The Socks: American Trench Boot Socks in Wool and Silk, $29.50 — The best leather boots on the market call for some of the best boot socks, no doubt about it.
  • The Hat: Taylor Stitch x Stetson Packable Lane Splitter Hat, $118 — Here’s where this ensemble really gets a shot in the arm, courtesy of this seriously cool Taylor Stitch x Stetson hat.

Now then, who’s ready to layer up the right way this season? For taking on winter in style, it really doesn’t get any better than, say, the Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Liner Jacket, a rugged and versatile layer that’s going to provide crucial protection and warmth in the elements. It only gets better though, thanks to one of the best men’s henleys for another crucial dose of warmth and style points. I think you’re going to love the rugged design and construction of Filson indigo denim in this look, and I’d say it’s also quite difficult to go wrong with FRYE leather boots for winter-ready performance and dependability. Add in critical touches like a rugged leather belt to really seal the deal, and make sure you’re outfitted accordingly and ready for anything with one of the best leather watches, in this instance from Luminox. Keep cold feet at bay with some of the best boot socks, and top it all off with a truly one-of-a-kind, ready-for-anything Taylor Stitch x Stetson hat. With all those rugged gear picks in hand, you’re going to be more than ready for your next winter weekend adventure. Now, how about that?

 

Style Pick of the Week: Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Liner Jacket

Check your watch, check your calendar and check the weather, because winter is speedily bearing down upon us. With that being said, perhaps you’re scrambling to layer up accordingly ahead of a major snowstorm — fear not, though. Your winter layering problems are solved, thanks to one of the best men’s shirt jackets available on the market. Yes indeed, NYC’s finest — Todd Snyder — comes through once again with the Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Liner Jacket for standout seasonal style. The designer already makes one of the best men’s field jackets, to go along with accessories to match via the Timex x Todd Snyder partnership, and early indications show that this rugged shirt jacket is every bit as high-quality as you might expect. Consider it a premium upgrade to your typical shirt jacket, starting with the use of Italian nylon to craft an exterior that’s luxurious and yet ready for winter weather. The interior specs also pass muster, to say the very least, with PrimaLoft filling that offers comfort and warmth. The insulated filling also means you can wear this tough shirt jacket as an outer layer in its own right (perhaps as part of an #OOTD featuring a henley), or use this shirt jacket as a mid-layer beneath a classic peacoat. It gets better, though.

SHOP: The Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Liner Jacket

As with other Todd Snyder menswear picks, the Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Liner Jacket isn’t exactly cheap (just a shade under $300, to be precise), but you’re getting a unique blend of both luxury and functionality. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that you’ve got your pick of three colorways, from the city-ready Black to the classic Olive shown above — and a bright Orange shade for a bit of bold style. Wear this classic shirt jacket in place of a blazer atop an Oxford shirt, team it with the aforementioned henley or go casual atop a Todd Snyder x Champion graphic T-shirt. Throw in the fact that you’ve got two snap chest pockets for your EDC essentials, and this is a winning style pick through and through. And given the tailored yet easy-to-layer fit, plus those neutral colorways, the Todd Snyder Italian Quilted Liner Jacket works well with everything from crisp blue denim to slim black jeans or even tan chinos. Talk about a layer that’ll become a wardrobe workhorse in a hurry (and not a moment too soon for the holiday season). Sounds pretty ideal to me — how about you?

Style Pick of the Week: Todd Snyder Made in New York Field Jacket

Another day, another stellar menswear pick from the likes of NYC’s best menswear designer, Mr. Todd Snyder. And thanks once again for joining us for another Style Pick of the Week, as fine a way as any to kick off a fall and winter weekend. Naturally, today’s Style Pick sure is a fitting one as we move into November, seeing as the Todd Snyder Made in New York Field Jacket checks all the right boxes should you still be on the hunt for one of the best jackets for fall and winter (and really, does the search ever stop!?). It’s a rugged update on an old-school classic, trading in a traditional military green for a sleek and sharp black that calls to mind downtown NYC style these days.

The Made in New York Field Jacket is certainly an investment, to say the least ($428 at Todd Snyder), but it’s worth remembering that you really do get what you pay for. We’re talking a durable cotton-polyester-nylon blend that results in excellent, functional-yet-stylish Italian Olmetex® fabric, the right kind of material to withstand fall breezes and rain. It’s not a rugged winter parka, to be sure, but it’s the kind of versatile jacket you can wear plenty before the polar vortex hits.

SHOP: The Todd Snyder Made in New York Field Jacket

A drawcord interior waist allows you to get the perfect fit when layering over other Todd Snyder essentials.

Of course, the Todd Snyder Made in New York Field Jacket isn’t just a functional and rugged coat for weekend adventures aplenty. It also looks mighty stylish when worn back in town as well as out on fall day trips, and four patch & flap pockets provide the right amount of space to handle both pursuits. Zip up this jacket or button it up for a bit more stylish flair when layered atop a Todd Snyder denim shirt and a rugged henley, for instance. It’s unlined, so you’ll have enough room to wear a Todd Snyder crewneck sweatshirt beneath it on chilly days, and that’s the kind of small detail that can’t be beat. Again, it’s an investment-level jacket, but you can rest easy knowing Todd Snyder will make it worth your while. Add one of the best field jackets to your rotation now, then reap the rewards the rest of this season.

The Thursday Buy: This Todd Snyder Chore Coat is One of the Best Jackets for Fall

Todd Snyder Japanese Indigo Rinse Chore Coat

One of the best denim jackets for men you can possibly buy right now.

Ladies and gentlemen, Todd Snyder, the famed NYC menswear designer and a longtime favorite of the blog, really needs no introduction, but I’ll give one anyways. At least in this instance, Snyder is making one of the best jackets for fall, period, and it just so happens that the Todd Snyder Japanese Indigo Rinse Chore Coat is also one of the best denim jackets you can buy right now. It takes what you thought you knew about the denim jacket, and then flips it on its head to create a style that’s seriously unique and seriously cool. It’s also a jacket worth investing in, given the fact that you can wear it plenty of times between now and that first snowfall (gulp), and then again come spring and summer. How great is that? Too great, if you ask me. If you’ve shopped, say, the Todd Snyder sale section, then you’ll know that quality this great doesn’t come cheap, but it’s worth investing in the best of the best — it’ll pay off, and if you know Snyder, you know that to be the case. This particular denim jacket retails for $348 at Todd Snyder, but again, it’s more than worth it.

#OOTD: How to Wear a Field Jacket for Fall, The Best Way

Let’s get real, folks: The weather out there calls for one of the best field jackets to meet worsening conditions while keeping you put together, warm and, just as equally important, stylish. We’ve got just the right jacket for you today. Yes indeed, it’s high time we got down to the business of more rugged fall style with today’s #OOTD. There are plenty of different iterations of the field jacket (in fact, I covered quite a few at Effortless Gent), but today’s jacket (the Flint and Tinder Flannel-Lined Waxed Hudson Jacket) is more of an updated take on the sporting jacket, as you’ll see below.

What does that mean for you? That means you can wear it on all your masked fall and winter pursuits with ease, be it weekend getaways, camping trips or quick-and-easy craft beer runs (that’s my modus operandi right there, as you know if you read my newsletter or follow me on Instagram). This outfit’s supporting cast is both rugged and refined, all the more versatile for whatever fall throws your way, including one of the best denim shirts and of course, a pair of classic Red Wing boots. For wherever your fall takes you, the best field jacket can certainly get the job done.

The right way to wear a seriously cool field jacket this fall.

  • The Field Jacket: Flint and Tinder Flannel-Lined Waxed Hudson Jacket, $258 — A unique take on the sporting jacket that’s proven a fast seller, this rugged waxed jacket is like a budget alternative to Bond’s jacket in Skyfall.
  • The Shirt: Buck Mason Denim Vintage One-Pocket Shirt, $105 — A favorite staple of this blog, you can’t go wrong with a rugged denim shirt for fall from Buck Mason.
  • The Henley: Alex Mill Henley in Sueded Jersey, $65 — Add even more rugged appeal to this #OOTD with a classic henley made for fall weekend wear particularly.
  • The Denim: Todd Snyder Slim Fit Japanese Selvedge Denim in Washed Black, $228 — With Todd Snyder selvedge denim, you’re investing in the best of the best, no questions asked, and this handsome pair of black selvedge denim takes the cake.
  • The Boots: Red Wing Heritage Iron Ranger Boots, $329 — As classic a fall style staple as it gets, these Red Wing boots could just be the most rugged men’s boots on the market. Don’t worry about mixing black and tan here — it just works.
  • The Socks: Bombas Men’s Work Boot Calf Socks, $22 — Your rugged boots call for some rugged men’s boot socks to provide optimum comfort and style — Bombas men’s socks check all the right boxes.
  • The Watch: Lum-Tec M88 Watch, $575 — To pair up with this ensemble’s other tough style staples, you need a rugged leather watch, a la the Lum-Tec M88 Watch.
  • The Everyday Carry: Filson Dryden Briefcase, $195 — Whatever it is your hauling this fall (for me, it’s often a craft beer growler, a journal and a book, to name a few), the Filson Dryden Briefcase can more than pass muster.

Alright, if you ask me, you can really feel it in the air, and you can nearly see the fall season jump right off the page with this #OOTD. It’s got all the functional and tough gear your fall and winter season requires, starting with a rugged waxed jacket that, as I mentioned, is like a budget alternative to Bond’s jacket in Skyfall. That’s a mighty good spot to be in, especially when you layer it atop a rugged denim shirt for fall from Buck Mason. To keep you warm and moving around in style as you head from distillery to brewery or day hike back into town, a classic henley provides some added warmth, while a pair of black selvedge denim add some edgy, cool appeal to this ensemble. It’s all set off nicely by about as premium a pair of men’s boots as you’re apt to find: The Red Wing Heritage Iron Ranger Boots, a true fall style staple.

As it were, the Lum-Tec M88 Watch is a rugged and tough watch that fits right in with the rest of this look, while a pair of Bombas men’s socks is enough to provide plenty of comfort and style for days on the road and at home. Of course, to haul all your gear, you also need the best of the best — enter the Filson Dryden Briefcase, the type of everyday bag you should be proud to own. And, well, that’s that — there’s your #OOTD. Head to Twitter to let me know how you end up rocking it. Cheers, my friends!
