The Friday Read: Filson Fall Menswear, The Best Everyday Carry Goods & New Whiskey From FEW Spirits

Best early fall menswear from Filson.

My friends, welcome to another Friday — a summer Friday, at that, but a great chance all the same to start thinking about the season ahead. Granted, we’ve not yet reached Labor Day, but is it ever too early to start shopping the best fall menswear from Filson? They’re but one of my favorite and recommended brands to get you ready for what you might call “beanie and waxed jacket” season, so consider checking out a whole host of Filson New Arrivals in the weeks to come. Think of it like an early, menswear insider tip to start your weekend in style.

As for the rest of your weekend (and my weekend!), I’ve got a full slate packed with both menswear writing and of course, a much-anticipated New York City concert. I’ll be trekking tonight to famed, historic Queens concert outpost Forest Hills Stadium to see a longtime favorite band, Michigan-born folk rockers Lord Huron! I’ve been a fan since my days back in college in Pure Michigan, so to see stylish frontman Ben Schneider take the stage in NYC is a true, long-awaited treat.

Naturally, I’ll be covering all the fun on my Instagram, and it’ll be a nice, tranquil way to slide on into a breezy summer weekend. In the meantime, consider checking out those Filson New Arrivals — and consider spinning the music of Lord Huron, too. Cheers and let’s get into the rest of the Friday Read!

  • Whiskey lovers, rejoice — actually, make that whiskey lovers AND lovers of high-voltage rock n’roll (guilty as charged). It was a pleasure to both uncork and write about an excellent new whiskey from FEW Spirits out of the Midwest (Evanston, Illinois). FEW Spirits worked with San Fran rockers Black Rebel Motorcycle Club on a standout new Motor Oil Whiskey, and it was so very cool to be able to write about that launch over at Maxim. Cheers, my friends. Best of all? The fact that you can get FEW Spirits delivered to your door with Drizly. Again, cheers!

  • Consider this one more style tip to get your weekend rolling before I leave you to the rest of your Friday. The good folks at Huckberry have done it once again — and by “it,” I mean teaming up with Alabama-based Billy Reid on the Billy Reid x Huckberry Dover Hoodie, and what a piece it is. My latest blog post covers everything you need to know about this supremely stylish hooded sweatshirt. Get to it, folks.

That’ll bring us to the end of another Friday Read — are you feeling a bit more ready for the weekend? I know I sure am, but first, I’ve got my aforementioned trek up to Queens to see Lord Huron this evening. Be sure to follow along with all the fun on my Instagram, and as always, thanks for reading!
