The Friday Read: Classic Persol Sunglasses, New Todd Snyder Gear & Shinola’s Latest Launch

 

Persol Steve McQueen Sunglasses

Who else is looking ahead to the weekend in style, like our man Mr. McQueen up there? He’s wearing Persol sunglasses, a classic selection that the legendary actor helped take to the next level as far as classic appeal is concerned. Helpfully, you can add a bit of your own Steve McQueen flair to your summer wardrobe by heading over to UNCRATE and shopping the Persol 714 Steve McQueen Sunglasses in the UNCRATE Supply Shop. They’re about as good as it gets if you want truly legendary style, and I’m not just saying that. Give them a look for yourself, and then let me know on Twitter if you end up picking them up.

As luck would have it, I’ll be bringing my own pair of Persol 714 Steve McQueen Sunglasses with me on the road this weekend for stylish summer adventures. I’m making the trek back to Michigan for a bachelor party (congrats, Andrew!) and some time on the water — Lake Michigan, as luck would have it — plus plenty of home state beer. The tail end of my trip includes a stop in Grand Rapids, aptly known as Beer City, U.S.A. — I plan to check out some of the city’s finest breweries, including New Holland Brewing, before I hit the road back to New York City. You can read all about my trip, as it were, in my twice-weekly newsletter The Style Guide In Brief, where I cover music, menswear and craft beer, all at once. It’s just one of the recommended reads you should dive into to start your weekend. The rest of my top picks for this week are below, so get that Friday started right. Cheers, folks!

Todd Snyder menswear

  • I talked earlier this week about the best new menswear to buy from Todd Snyder (head here to read that post), and if you haven’t yet caught up with the latest and greatest from the esteemed designer, I’d say it’s about time you start. The Todd Snyder Indigo Surf Terry Sweatshirt in particular is a perfect layer for your next beach trip, with breezy, lightweight fabric construction and go-anywhere style to match. Don’t start up that beach bonfire without it.

Shinola Rambler

  • Now, don’t get me wrong: The Persol sunglasses featured at the start of this post are as cool as can be, without a doubt. But if you want to add a pair of shades to your collection that share some DNA with your favorite Shinola watch, you’d do well to check out the new Shinola Eyewear Collection, not to mention my rundown of the frames themselves for Maxim.com. I’m a big fan, and I hope to test out a pair sooner rather than later.
  • I’ve given you a shopping recommendation and a reading recommendation (remember, my newsletter is The Style Guide In Brief!), so what say I give you a music recommendation, too? I’ve started writing for the U.K.’s largest new music publication, the excellent The Line of Best Fit, and I couldn’t be more thrilled about it. Fans of The National and folk rocker Sufjan Stevens, like myself, will love the latest release from Ghostly Kisses. I wrote about it earlier this week for Best Fit’s New Music section, so give it a read and get plugged in!

Now, that’s going to wrap up today’s Friday Read as I get ready to hit the road and enjoy the sun and the open air of Pure Michigan. Remember, hitting “Subscribe” on my newsletter, The Style Guide In Brief, is definitely on your to-do list this weekend. And here’s one more item for your to-do list: Head to this #OOTD to get my guide on how to dress for the beach for guys this summer. It’ll have you covered from head-to-toe with style in mind. Happy shopping and enjoy the weekend, my friends!

The Sunday Sale: Get These Everest Isles Swim Trunks for Under $100 at UNCRATE Now

Best swim trunks for men

As we roll through June, perhaps you’ve realized something: You’re in need of a new favorite pair of swim trunks, the kind of pair that blends style and functionality with ease. Well, folks: Meet the Everest Isles Swim Trunks, available for under $100 at UNCRATE right now as part of today’s Sunday Sale. What a deal, right? Yes, yes indeed. And it’s also worth mentioning that the UNCRATE Surplus Shop is one heck of a place to go to get some standout menswear deals in general. Case in point: Not all that long ago here on the blog, I talked about the best men’s sneakers for summer, a pair that just so happen to be under $60 at UNCRATE. The deals, they keep on rolling.

If you’re familiar with the well-stocked UNCRATE Surplus Shop, then perhaps you’ve had your eye on those finely crafted sneakers. But let’s keep it more beach-friendly today with a pair of the best men’s swim trunks, the kind that you’ll definitely appreciate all summer long. I’ve tried out a set of Everest Isles Swim Trunks myself, and I was struck by how lightweight and easy to wear they happened to be — they’re streamlined in terms of fit and fabric, a huge bonus for the guy on the go (that’s you!).

SHOP: The Everest Isles Swim Trunks

Best men's swim trunks

It just so happens that the Everest Isles Swim Trunks, in addition to being stylish and cut above the knee for maximum mobility, are also sustainable. They’re made with regenerated nylon that’s both durable and yet easy on your legs (they also incorporate other reclaimed materials salvaged from the ocean). That means they’re a pair of stylish men’s swim trunks you can feel good about wearing. And again, let’s not forget that they clock in at under $100. Even the small details are on point, which helps justify the fact that you’re still investing in this pair of swim trunks. Take the laser-engraved, corrosion-resistant cordage ends to prevent fraying — talk about a great feature.

The elasticated waist and athletic fit are flattering on most body types, as are the two sleek color options: Black or Silver. Either should pair readily with summer style staples like a classic Sunspel T-shirt or a timeless men’s polo for hours of fun in the sun, beer in hand. And because they’re cut like tailored shorts, you can even wear the Everest Isles Swim Trunks to grab a bite to eat after a day on the water without missing a beat. Throw in this stellar deal, and once again, you’ve just found your new favorite pair of swim trunks.

Style Pick of the Week: Sunspel Riviera Polo

If there’s one thing you can count on in this life, it’s that the menswear of James Bond (as seen above!) is as timeless, modern and yet classically cool as it gets, all at once. That’s certainly the case with today’s Style Pick of the Week, the Sunspel Riviera Polo, as sold by UNCRATE and as worn by everyone’s favorite secret agent. If you’ve followed James Bond since Daniel Craig took over before the legendary “Casino Royale,” perhaps you recognize, say, the T-shirt worn by James Bond, also made by Sunspel (and featured in this rugged, versatile #OOTD, too).

HELM Boots

It helps that now, you can head to UNCRATE to get the equally legendary Sunspel Riviera James Bond Polo, the type of polo shirt that’s as comfortable as your favorite T-shirt and even cooler than you might expect. It retails for $135, but if you ask me, it’s more than worth the price. After all, the UNCRATE Supply Shop is packed with the coolest menswear and gear imaginable, and what better way to step into a summer Saturday than with some new picks, like your new favorite polo? And because it’s too hot out at the moment to wear James Bond’s Danner boots from UNCRATE, this stylish men’s polo is the next best thing (and that’s an understatement).

SHOP: The Sunspel Riviera Polo From UNCRATE 

Sunspel Riviera Polo

The Sunspel Riviera Polo is a masterclass in how to make one of the best polos for men, and then in how to keep making it so consistently through the years. Available in Navy — the same polo worn by James Bond — as well as Grey Melange, Black and White, it’s an iconic offering done up in a crisp silhouette that’s neither too baggy nor too tight. It features a custom mesh fabric for the utmost in breathability, and this classic men’s polo is also cut to be worn untucked, like Bond himself would wear it.
Mack Weldon
If I could give you some advice, I’d urge you to go right out and snag the Sunspel Riviera Polo before the next James Bond movie, “No Time To Die,” is released this fall (as UNCRATE notes, the cool Heather Grey Melange colorway is a limited-edition offering that calls back to “Casino Royale”). At the end of the day, there are limitless chances to wear this classic polo, including with your favorite pair of pants — preferably tan chinos or off-white jeans — to summer cocktail parties and casual-yet-polished days at the office. Act now, add this James Bond polo to your rotation, then watch as compliments befitting of a secret agent roll your way.

Be sure to check out a few of my picks for the best Filson gear, including plenty of Father’s Day gifts under $100 from the lauded outfitter.

You’ve still got plenty of time to shop for Father’s Day, so I’d also recommend taking a look at my favorite Father’s Day gifts from Huckberry — to name but a few picks on this site. I’ll certainly be planning ahead and doing some shopping of my own, but I’ve got another major item on my agenda this weekend. I’ll be hitting the road on a solo getaway to upstate New York courtesy of Eddie Bauer!

 The legendary outfitter was kind enough to outfit me with some new Eddie Bauer men’s gear for my trip, which will take me to a solo mini-cabin getaway at the Getaway Eastern Catskills. It’s an innovative approach to taking a trip in these times, and I can’t wait to put my Eddie Bauer picks to the test across the weekend. Be sure to follow me on Instagram to catch up with the latest from my trip! For now, here’s everything else you should be reading and shopping this weekend.

The Art Of Shaving Father's Day Gifts

Best Father's Day gifts from Bespoke Post

  • Let’s talk about one more of the best Father’s Day gifts, this time from Bespoke Post. Now, I talked earlier this week on the blog about the best Father’s Day gifts from Bespoke Post, but consider this yet another reminder that they’re a really excellent spot to shop if you need an affordable, stylish gift for Father’s Day. The Bespoke Post Shield Box comes to mind as another excellent grooming gift for Dad, featuring five SPF-focused products to “shield” his mug from the sun. Pretty ideal, yes?
  • Let’s close things out the right way: With a bit of a reward for all of that hard work you just put in shopping. Treat yourself with one of my  more recent Maxim features, one that’s nice and patriotic for the summer season: Read more about (and stock up on!) the Southern Comfort Americana Bottle, launched recently by the famed brand. Cheers to the weekend, indeed.

I’ve got one last style pick before we head into the weekend. In fact, it’s yet another heirloom-worthy piece that could be ideal for either yourself, your Dad or anyone who values one of the best leather weekender bags in their travel rotation. Head here to this blog post to read all about the incredibly cool and well-made Satchel & Page Gladstone Weekender Bag. It looks to me like it’s time to pack up and hit the road.
