The Thursday Buy: Step Out in Style This Early Fall with Wellen’s Organic Cord Shirt

Best men's shirt for early fall.

As far as the best style essentials for men are concerned, I’m of the opinion — as you know if you read the blog — that it’s never too early to get ready for a new season, especially when the season in question is early fall (surely, one of the best times of year for menswear). And of course, you should stay at the ready by shopping your favorite online menswear shops early and often, like Huckberry.

We’ve talked about on-sale summer style essentials from the famed retailer here as of late, but today’s fall style pick is a crucial one — it’s the Wellen Organic Cord Shirt, a refreshed take on the classic buttondown that you’re going to love wearing this fall. You’ll find, it of course, in the Huckberry New Arrivals section, which is positively packed to the gills with some of the best early fall menswear.

Your new favorite fall shirt is available right now in seven cool, fresh colors and patterns, and perhaps better still is the fact that the Wellen Organic Cord Shirt retails for under $100, a nice steal when it comes down to shopping for the best shirts for men.

100 percent organic cotton construction and a made-in-India design drive home the modern-yet-timeless nature of the Wellen Organic Cord Shirt, and the fit should prove easy to wear this shirt all on its own or beneath your favorite henley this fall. Again, it’s never too early to prepare properly with style essentials aplenty for fall, and the Wellen Organic Cord Shirt checks off all the right boxes.

Style Pick of the Week: Wellen ’66 Stretch Boardshorts – Summer’s Best Boardshorts

Best men's swim trunks for summer.

Back in the day, years ago, boardshorts used to get a bit of a bad rep, did they not? You know the ones I mean: Baggy boardshorts with way too many pockets, the kind you might have worn growing up (no harm, no foul!). But that’s all changed: The best men’s swim trunks for summer, like the Wellen ’66 Stretch Boardshorts, are both better-fitting, more mature and just cooler (seriously!) than the pairs you might have worn back in the day, and that makes them a worthy candidate for today’s Style Pick of the Week.

It all comes down to the fact that the Wellen ’66 Stretch Boardshorts boast a vintage-inspired cut that streamlines things from a pair of early 2000s boardshorts, and that’s a great thing for all involved. The moisture-wicking and quick-drying, lightweight fabric also gives you added mobility in the water and on land, another major benefit of upgrading your boardshorts in a modern manner. Above all else, the Wellen ’66 Stretch Boardshorts add some serious style points to your summer swimwear rotation.

They’re also part of Huckberry’s sustainable in-house brand Wellen, another major benefit if you want to upgrade your style the right way this season. Plus, you get your pick between sun-faded color options aplenty when it comes to the Wellen ’66 Stretch Boardshorts, and they retail for the agreeable price of $68, meaning you can pick up more than one pair with relative ease if you so choose. The next time you get the feeling your boardshorts need a style upgrade, snag the Wellen ’66 Stretch Boardshorts.

The Thursday Buy: Wellen’s Quilted Sweatpants are the Best Men’s Sweatpants to Buy Right Now

If you ask me, we’re still in the midst of the holiday season, or at the very least, we’re still in the midst of the perfect time of year to stock up on some of the best men’s sweatpants. I’m talking, in this case, about the best men’s sweatpants to buy now, especially as we head into what should be a very laidback, very relaxed post-holiday, pre-2022 weekend. Of course, the Wellen Quilted Sweatpants will still serve you mighty well through the rest of winter, and that’s why you’d do very well to pick them up right now. They’re part of an entire line of sustainable style essentials delivered to you courtesy of Wellen, the in-house brand at Huckberry that focuses on using regenerative fabrics to craft the coolest menswear around. The fact that Wellen menswear is also often ideal for laidback lounging and luxury is an added bonus in my book. When it comes to the Wellen Quilted Sweatpants, the difference is in the details, and in the best way possible.

And those details are every bit as exceptional as you might expect, including the use of soft organic cotton that results in a comfortable fit and feel like no other. Yes indeed, the Wellen Quilted Sweatpants are just about perfect in every which way, and it helps that the quilted design itself is both visually interesting and a step up from athletic logo sweatpants. You shouldn’t be surprised, because Wellen menswear is different in the best possible ways.

As Wellen says, the Wellen Quilted Sweatpants are “endlessly comfortable, effortlessly cool,” and one glance should prove that quite handily. The garment-washed finish makes ’em comfortable and easy to wear right out of the box, especially with your favorite henley and some cozy house slippers. Of course, the tapered cut and elastic cuffs turn the Wellen Quilted Sweatpants into a pair of sweatpants you can actually wear out of the house, and that’s no joke. When it comes to these, some of the best men’s sweatpants, take your pick from the crisp Navy option or a breezy Moss version, each of which should wear well with neutral style staples like a grey crewneck sweater or a thermal shirt.

Even the smaller points on the Wellen Quilted Sweatpants are admirable, including recycled polyester buttons to really drive home the brand’s trademark sustainability. No matter which option you select when it comes to the Wellen Quilted Sweatpants, you’re getting one of the very best pairs of durable, sustainable and stylish sweatpants on the market, and that’s just a fact.

Plus, contrasting design details at the collar and front pocket set this stylish, casual pullover apart from the pack.

There’s a happy medium when it comes to getting dressed for early fall, when it’s not quite cold enough to break out a rugged parka and yet, you still need a transitional layer. Enter one of the best men’s sweaters, one made with care and sustainable style in mind from Wellen (courtesy of Huckberry, one of the best retailers for men, of course).

Answer: Add the trusty, ever-reliable and recently launched Wellen Recycled Cotton Headlands Sweater to your style rotation ASAP. If you’re not familiar with Wellen, the in-house Huckberry brand (which debuted in 2019 to great effect) focuses on much-needed sustainable materials like organic cotton and more specifically hemp — both of these materials regenerate soil and can stand up to some serious wear and tear. It all comes to a head with the Wellen Recycled Cotton Headlands Sweater, ready for casual and rugged adventures off the grid.

This sweater is distinctive in more ways than one, starting with the more laidback and warming waffle knit construction. That gives it a more rugged appeal than a smooth merino wool sweater, for instance, so the Wellen Recycled Cotton Headlands Sweater is ideal for casual style situations (more on this in a second). And the use of recycled cotton (40 percent of the fabric blend used) holds up the sustainable end of the bargain, while acrylic and polyester add durability and stretch. One of the best sweaters for men checks even more boxes beyond that, though.

Naturally, the Wellen Recycled Cotton Headlands Sweater is your new favorite sweater for a reason, and it comes down to versatility and layering potential. Because it’s made with a cotton blend, it’s not overly stuffy or heavy, like a wool sweater (which you should also have in your wardrobe, mind you). For days when temperatures might start in the 40s or 50s (or days where the temperatures drop down into the 60s at night), a lightweight sweater like the ever-versatile Wellen Recycled Cotton Headlands Sweater is the right way to go.

Style Pick of the Week: Wills Speckled Merino Crewneck Sweater

Wills Speckled Merino Crewneck 2

A classic and cool sweater made from top-notch materials.

On the hunt for one of the best sweaters for men this holiday season (and beyond)? If you ask me, I think your search just got a little less comlicated, because the Wills Speckled Merino Crewneck Sweater is here to solve your winter layering problems in effective, refined and surprisingly affordable style. We’re talking about one of the best sweaters under $100 for men here (it clocks in at $98), and it’s super helpful that said sweater is sold by Huckberry. That gives it a mark of quality and a high bar to clear, but again, the Wills Speckled Merino Crewneck Sweater is one-of-a-kind in its own right, from the premium fabric to the no-fuss crewneck design. The crewneck design, in fact, means you can wear this refined sweater on its own atop a long-sleeve T-shirt for a more laidback look, and yet it might be at its best with a classic Oxford shirt or a warm flannel shirt for added warmth and holiday-ready style. Yes indeed, a piece like the Wills Speckled Merino Crewneck Sweater is subtly stylish and yet seriously cool in its own way, and that makes it a highly covetable winter wardrobe addition.

SHOP: The Wills Speckled Merino Crewneck Sweater 

One of three versatile colorways in which you can snag your new favorite sweater.

As mentioned above, it helps that this versatile sweater comes in three highly adaptable colors, each of which could be the building block of a successful holiday ensemble. Team the Charcoal color with everything from tan chinos and an Oxford shirt to dark blue denim, brown leather chukka boots and a light blue chambray shirt underneath. Either of those looks should work swimmingly this holiday season. It’s also quite helpful that the Wills Speckled Merino Crewneck Sweater is made with, well, merino fabric for the ultimate in versatility. Merino regulates your temperature and acts as an anti-microbial fabric, all the better to ensure you get multiple rounds of wear out of this standout sweater. Again, you can’t top the sub-$100 price tag, either. And if I were you, I just might look to snag multiple colorways of what just might be your new favorite sweater. Who’s onboard with that?
