The Friday Read: New Spring Chelsea Boots, Investment-Level Menswear & How to Wear an Oxford Shirt

A rugged, refined pair of iconic Chelsea boots — perfect for Friday and beyond.

So, we’ve reached Friday. How are you stepping out in style? Potentially with the Tricker’s Stephen Chelsea Boots on, I should hope. There’s nothing like a stylish pair of Chelsea boots for spring, particularly ones made with wax-impregnated leather to fight off breezy, stormy weather — I can’t recommend these ones from Tricker’s enough. And with that being said, they’re going to set you up the right way in time for the weekend.What’s on your weekend agenda? In my neck of the woods, well, I won’t exactly be needing the Tricker’s Stephen Chelsea Boots any time soon, as it were — I’m capping off the last weekend of my family’s Turks and Caicos trip (as seen on my Instagram!) to celebrate my dad’s 60th birthday! It’s been a sun-filled, relaxing week on the beautiful beaches and in the lovely, bright blue water of this seriously great island. I’ll be returning to NYC on Sunday, but in the meantime, I’ll be focused on soaking up as much of the sun as possible. Again, you need two things to get your own weekend going the right way: The Tricker’s Stephen Chelsea Boots, and the below menswear news items from this week’s Friday Read. Let’s go to it!

  • Want a jacket that blends heritage-quality style with spring-ready layering potential and unlimited wearability? That’d be the Todd Snyder x Golden Bear Bomber, as covered by yours truly at GearMoose! Cheers.
  • There’s the right way to wear your Oxford shirt, then there’s perhaps the best way to wear your Oxford shirt. As it were, I covered a new way to wear this men’s style essential earlier this season on the blog — get the #OOTD right now.
  • As we move into spring, there are going to be certain pieces you’re going to want to invest in to step up your game — the men’s style essentials that stand the test of time & trends. That being said, I wrote for Effortless Gent about seven of my favorite, must-have menswear picks, from beautiful, investment-level sneakers to a pair of the best men’s chinos to buy now. Put it this way: If you only had to buy one of these classic items in each critical category, well, my picks are the ones to buy.

Still on the hunt for one final, last thing to read (for now)? We’ve got you covered here on the blog. In fact, we’ve really got you covered — read on to find out about the best men’s style essentials for early spring. OK, that should do it. Cheers!

See Now, Buy Now: These Stylish Tricker’s Boots Belong On Your Feet Right Now

An outrageously great-looking pair of boots — they belong on your feet.

Mark my words, this won’t be the first time this week (or season) that we talk about the best men’s boots for any time of year, be it summer or fall or winter– far from it, in fact. Heck, it surely won’t be the first time you see the Tricker’s Low Leg Logger Boots on The Style Guide, either. They’re some of the coolest boots for men, and that’s an understatement. These rugged leather boots are striking and investment-worthy … so in short, they’re a perfect addition the lineup of men’s style essentials at Huckberry, ya dig? And the great part about the Tricker’s Low Leg Logger Boots  is … they’re quite unlike any other pair of boots we’ve ever featured on the blog. Truly. These are UK-made boots coming from one of the oldest shoemakers in England — that’s pedigree that not event U.S. shoemakers (a la Rancourt & Co.) can come close to claiming.

That makes them a surefire bet if you want timeless style that gives you some bang for your buck. Trickers is simply among the best in the best at what they do, and the Tricker’s Low Leg Logger Boots live up to that legend. They’re built sturdy all the way up, from the extra water-resistant leather (yes, extra) to the handsome profile and full leather lining.

The commando lug sole adds an extra touch of traction — to say the least.

So, you know Tricker’s is a revered English brand with an incredible depth of knowledge. What they’ve managed to do with the Tricker’s Low Leg Logger Boots is quite remarkable, too. The design is based off English logger’s boots, and that gives it an air of rugged, heritage-inspired style. The full-grain leather gets its extra water-resistant qualities from a unique waxing process, and a commando sole gives the Tricker’s Low Leg Logger Boots a TON of grip in inclement weather. But enough about the specs — how should you wear the Tricker’s Low Leg Logger Boots? The world really is your oyster. They can work with slim dark denim, a thermal henley and a classic chambray shirt . or you can use them to add some serious cool to a grey flannel suit. Fancy something more in between? I’d team the Tricker’s Low Leg Logger Boots with slim khaki chinos, your favorite denim jacket and a timeless Oxford shirt. But with a pair of boots this stylish, nothing beats the classics. I’m talking beat-up blue denim, a classic crewneck sweatshirt and — especially for the weekend — a great cup of craft coffee. That’s good enough for me, and I hope it’s good enough for you. Thanks for reading!
