The Thursday Buy: The Todd Snyder Stretch Selvedge Jeans are Fall’s Best Denim

Slim Fit Japanese Stretch Selvedge Jean in Indigo Rinse

Slim selvedge jeans made from the best Japanese fabric out there — the perfect jeans to wear to work from home.

What’s high on your shopping list heading into fall? Best make sure some of the best menswear from Todd Snyder tops the list. The NYC-based designer will surely help you cover all your bases, including when it comes to the best men’s jeans — that’s right, the best men’s denim just so happens to be made by a designer that also knows how to make an incredible suit and casual boat shoes. Talk about versatility. But we’re not talking about any old pair of jeans off the rack. We’re talking about Todd Snyder selvedge jeans that deliver in terms of fabric, fit and feel. Jeans made from a more rugged fabric (a la Japanese cotton selvedge) are just what the doctor ordered for fall and winter, in fact.

Again, there’s one place to go in this regard. When you want selvedge jeans that deliver quality, an agreeable price and infinite wearability, you might just want (no, you absolutely do want), the Slim Fit Japanese Stretch Selvedge Jean in Indigo Rinse from the good folks at Todd Snyder.

The best men’s selvedge jeans get an upgrade here — while selvedge denim is normally unwashed and stiff (this is known as raw selvedge), Todd Snyder selvedge denim receives a handsome indigo rinse and uses unique stretch selvedge fabric from Japan. These aren’t your average pair of jeans, to say the least. They’re refined yet versatile, as at home with a Todd Snyder blazer as with one of the designer’s Champion T-shirts. The fit on these blue jeans is slim and modern, yet not rock star-skinny.

This means you can wear these slim dark blue jeans with the best chukka boots and a chambray shirt, or else with rugged men’s leather boots and a thermal henley all fall and into winter. Todd Snyder Japanese selvedge denim really is one-of-a-kind, so it’s a bit pricer ($198 via Todd Snyder), but no less worth it. In fact, when you find a  pair of selvedge jeans you can wear for months on end into winter — and well past that — I’d suggest you snap them up ASAP.

Keep scrolling to check out the full #OOTD, then chime in on Twitter if you plan to pick up any of these rugged summer gear picks. Onward, folks!

A cool chambray shirt worn an even cooler way. Get into it. folks.

Hopefully, you’ve got a few more ideas on how to wear a chambray shirt this summer. The key here involves layering it up the right way, and accessorizing it with the best men’s gear for warm weather. Luckily, Buck Mason makes it easy to do that successfully — this is quite simply one of the best men’s chambray shirts I’ve seen, and I think you’ll feel the same way. You’ve got on-point summer style aplenty here thanks to the best white T-shirt for guys, to go along with stylish stretch selvedge jeans from one of your favorite menswear designers (or at least, one of my favorites!). The look gets all the better thanks to rugged chukka boots from Red Wing Heritage — which also happen to be surprisingly lightweight — and then it’s all finished off in fine form with a vintage-inspired watch from the good folks at Timex. How can it get better? That’s easy, folks. A stylish brown leather belt from Billykirk keeps your black selvedge jeans in place and looks great doing it, while a pair of the most affordable sunglasses for men belongs on your face for the rest of summer. Last but not least, one of the coolest growlers for beer helps you transport your favorite beer and keep it cold for hours of summer enjoyment. It’s all about casual, rugged style, and I don’t think it can get any better than, well, right now. But again, it all starts with one of the best men’s chambray shirts — choose wisely, shop accordingly, then get out there this summer.

Style Pick of the Week: Todd Snyder Weekend Shorts

Unbelievably cool and casual summer shorts from a favorite menswear designer.

Turn toward one of your favorite menswear brands — that’d be the inimitable, NYC-based Todd Snyder — to pick up a pair of the best men’s shorts. Well, OK, that’s step one — let’s talk about why exactly you need the Todd Snyder Weekend Shorts in your rotation, shall we? The very aptly named Todd Snyder Weekend Shorts exemplify laidback cool for the warmer months, and they’re part of a full lineup of the best shorts for men being sold by the brand — many of which feature summer-friendly colors, breezy fabrics and (this is crucial) a relaxed drawstring waist and nicely tailored fit. Yes indeed, you could likely call these some of the best summer shorts, given that they check so many of the right boxes.

But really, would you expect anything less from one of the best menswear designers on the planet? Snyder just gets it, and takes throwback style staples into the 21st century in a way that’s subtle but stylish all the way through. So, that brings us back to the Todd Snyder Weekend Shorts. The rich indigo chambray fabric is a serious selling point — I can nearly guarantee you don’t have anything like this in your wardrobe currently. In fact, it’s not just any old run-of-the-mill stuff (pun intended) — these stylish summer shorts are made with 97 percent cotton & 3 percent Lycra from Italy’s Albini Mill.

A button back pocket offers space for your everyday carry.

These are, simply put, some of the best shorts for men for a reason, and it’s got to be the fact that they’re casual enough to wear with your favorite T-shirt, yet easy to wear with a classic polo and leather loafers all the same. Lest we forget, they feature an elasticized drawstring waist, so they’re easy to pull on for, well, the weekend alongside your favorite canvas sneakers and that perfectly worn-in tee (preferably from the Todd Snyder x Champion line). Make no mistake, though — in spite of that drawstring waist, these are far from, say, gym shorts.

The tailored 7-inch inseam is akin to that of shorts you’ve likely already got in your wardrobe, but again, these stylish summer shorts amp things up in terms of fabric and great looks. These are summer shorts you can throw and forget about, whether you’re firing up the grill or hanging out in a socially distanced fashion with friends. Pair them with dependable sneakers and a rugged short-sleeve henley, team them with your favorite polo and leather loafers, toss ’em on with a broken-in tee and classic Converse sneakers — either way, the Todd Snyder Weekend Shorts can put in work, plain and simple.

See Now, Buy Now: Try Out This Todd Snyder Shirt for Hot Summer Days

A breezy, cool-as-can-be linen shirt for hot summer days — all from Todd Snyder.

Alright, my friends. We talked earlier this summer about how essential a Todd Snyder shirt can be for the summer months, and we’re back at it again today with the latest and greatest summer style move from the lauded NYC menswear designer as part of our ever-running See Now, Buy Now series. The point being, if you want a classic summer shirt that blends an ever-so-slightly rugged appeal with the type of breezy fabric the season requires, you want this Todd Snyder Italian Linen Utility Shirt. If you recall, we previously featured the rugged and functional Todd Snyder Utility Shirt on the blog in a short-sleeve cut, but what if you want a little more coverage from the sun’s rays? Then this Todd Snyder linen shirt is the right way to go. Linen is perhaps the quintessential summer fabric, featuring a looser and more breathable weave to keep you cool. That means it tends to wrinkle more easily, but hey … who said a bit of character was a bad thing? It’s certainly not going to change the fact that Todd Snyder has come up with one of the best summer shirts for men, no doubt.

SHOP: The Todd Snyder Italian Linen Utility Shirt

Easygoing fabric and a great summer colorway help set this summer shirt apart.

What makes the Todd Snyder Italian Linen Utility Shirt so essential? For one, it’s modeled off the classic and pocket-filled safari shirt, a staple that Mr. Todd Snyder has made all his own in recent years. This one gets a more tailored cut — yet you can still layer it atop your favorite T-shirt — and it also features handy front-button chest pockets. The fabric is breezy and breathable Solbiati Italian linen, also done up nicely in a breezy Teal color. That summer-friendly shade makes this an excellent shirt to wear when it’s hot out — and because it’s linen, you can team this Todd Snyder shirt with everything from slim tan chinos and white leather sneakers to easygoing leather loafers and navy chino shorts. Your summer plans might be more socially distanced than usual, but the Todd Snyder Italian Linen Utility Shirt is undoubtedly going to get you through the dog days of summer in style. Try it, find out and then let me know your thoughts on Twitter.
