Style Pick of the Week: Flint and Tinder Bone Button Western Shirt – A Rugged Wardrobe Upgrade for Winter

Best Western shirt for men to buy now.

If you’re anything like me, it seems that there comes a certain point in any season where something fresh yet familiar is the right move when it comes to men’s style essentials. So, taking something tried and true, like one of the best men’s shirts, and flipping the equation on its head slightly — say, with a rugged Western shirt that’s timeless and yet on trend.

HELM Boots

All the better if it’s sold by Huckberry, which is certainly the case with today’s Style Pick of the Week. Now that we’re well into February, perhaps you want to shake up your wardrobe ever so slightly (as we’ve talked about frequently on the blog as of late!), and that’s where the Flint and Tinder Bone Button Western Shirt can lend quite the helping hand.

Now, men’s style essentials at Huckberry are nothing new around these parts, whether it’s the stylish, unique Wellen Blanket Chore Coat or the rest of the dependable lineup from in-house brand Flint and Tinder, from stretch chinos to Oxford shirts and yes, the Flint and Tinder Bone Button Western Shirt. Old-school styles like Western shirts and Western boots seem to be everywhere these days, so if you want to dip your toes into that trend without going full-on “Yellowstone,” then a classic Western shirt could be just the ticket.

The detailing, from the point stitching and pockets to the snap buttons and a pleasingly faded series of wash options, is as on-point as you’ve come to expect from Huckberry. The 8oz. cotton denim is an agreeable weight, able to be layered easily over one of the best men’s henleys, buttoned up on its own or worn underneath a classic shawl cardigan. Of course, the Flint and Tinder Bone Button Western Shirt works very well right now in colder weather, and should function readily as one of the best men’s shirt jackets as the weather slowly but surely warms up.

For good measure, the Flint and Tinder Bone Button Western Shirt is priced agreeably for a shirt that’s both a shirt and, well, a shirt jacket — it’s available at Huckberry for $158, and that’s a heck of a deal for one of the best USA-made shirts out there. The Flint and Tinder Bone Button Western Shirt comes in two classic blue wash options, but there’s also a Salt-and-Pepper addition to really switch things up this late winter and into spring.

Reach for one of the best men’s Western shirts when you want a casually rugged layer to carry you to a laidback day at the office, then out to your go-to bar and back home — or anywhere you please that calls for timeless, old-school cool. That’s the Flint and Tinder Bone Button Western Shirt for you, folks.


The Tuesday Steal: Stock Up on the Best Winter Men’s Style Picks in the Taylor Stitch Last Call Section

Taylor Stitch menswear review.

Winter weather beckons, as does the need to layer up in style. And when you need to step up in the clutch and upgrade your wardrobe with seasonal style top of mind, well, that’s where Taylor Stitch enters the equation. It nearly goes without saying, but the famed San Francisco retailer just checks off so many boxes that the stylish modern man (like yourself!) needs in his wardrobe: Taylor Stitch menswear is both rugged and refined, at home in the office or on a coastal vacation, and truly built to last.

That goes for super-soft Taylor Stitch flannel shirts as well as Taylor Stitch sweaters, denim, chinos… you name it, and this writer is a big-time fan of Taylor Stitch. If that’s the case for you as well, then I’ve got a heck of a deal for you today. That deal in question — or multiple deals, as it were, comes courtesy of the Taylor Stitch Last Call section. You can get up to 30 percent off the best Taylor Stitch men’s style picks, and that’s a deal very much worth shopping today.

Now, we’ve talked about Taylor Stitch sales on the blog before, but the well-stocked yet fast-moving Last Call section is something else entirely. Think of it like a “Greatest Hits” selection of Taylor Stitch gear, from pieces like the Taylor Stitch Fisherman Sweater to slim, faded Taylor Stitch denim, and even picks like the classic Taylor Stitch Yosemite Shirt. If it’s in-style, on-sale menswear you seek, you’d do very well indeed to shop the Taylor Stitch Last Call section — make it happen, and it’ll be very much worth your while.

The Tuesday Steal: Save 35 Percent on One of the Best Men’s Cardigans Right Now at Faherty

Best shawl cardigan for men.

When you find one of the best winter style essentials on sale for a downright steal, I’d advise you jump right on it — after all, it’s something we’ve talked about time and time again here on the blog, and it helps if you know a few choice brands selling your favorite menswear styles at a discount.

HELM Boots- $50 Off Your First Purchase

Take the good folks at Faherty Brand, a personal favorite company of mine with New York roots, surf-inspired styles and a penchant for turning ultra-soft fabrics into rugged-meets-luxe staples that make every guy look great. Be it one of the best men’s topcoats or one of the best flannel shirts on the market, Faherty just knows how to make menswear essentials for the modern man (that’s you!).

HELM Boots- $50 Off Your First Purchase

That’s certainly true as you consider one of the best men’s sweaters, too: I’m talking, of course, about the Faherty Marled Cotton Cardigan, which is on sale now for 35 percent off and perfectly ready to upgrade your winter sweater game. This shawl cardigan is worth every penny, made from a 95 percent cotton and 5 percent cashmere blend for a soft handfeel and easy layering potential.

Best winter cardigan for men.

Beyond that, the Faherty Marled Cotton Cardigan boasts a flattering shawl collar, which frames the face and neck nicely while also offering some added bulk against winter’s worst weather. And while the Faherty Marled Cotton Cardigan is a bulkier upgrade than, say, a V-neck sweater, it still fits relatively close to the body and isn’t too bulky to layer beneath one of your favorite waxed jackets this winter. Throw in the fact that two versatile colors (a Marled Navy and a crisp Charcoal) are on sale right now, and the Faherty Marled Cotton Cardigan is your next go-to winter layer. Now’s the time to stock up, my friends.

The Thursday Buy: Switch Up Your Winter Style with Buck Mason’s Rugby Polo

Best long-sleeve polos for men

Dressing well in winter can sometimes feel like a bit of a taxing chore at times: It’s cold, there’s only so much you can do to layer up while still breathing easy, and it can get just a bit repetitive. But like clockwork, that’s where Buck Mason enters the fray, taking classic winter style essentials and upending them ever so slightly, whether it’s a rugged shawl jacket or an even cozier shawl cardigan for men. The brand isn’t resting on its laurels though, this time taking the traditional polo and turning it into a new winter must-have via the Buck Mason Field-Spec Rugby Polo.

Shop New Arrivals from Billy Reid

Buck Mason shirts — from one-pocket Oxford shirts to toasty flannel pieces — are already a tried-and-true closet staple (at least for this Brooklyn writer), and the Buck Mason Field-Spec Rugby Polo is an even cooler departure from the norm. Rugby shirts have been a prep style staple for years, and companies like Rowing Blazers have brought them back into the fold.

So it goes with the Buck Mason Field-Spec Rugby Polo, which subverts the warm-weather nature of the polo and turns it into a distinctive layer you can now wear to the office or to a polished winter gathering.

The Buck Mason Field-Spec Rugby Polo, available in colors like crisp blue Jet, classic Black and sharp White, hits the right notes for a preppy staple made modern. The classic fit should prove flattering on several body types, while the three-button placket on the Buck Mason Field-Spec Rugby Polo frames the face nicely. And lest you should think the Buck Mason Field-Spec Rugby Polo will prove too lightweight, it’s made from cotton jersey fabric in the same vein as thick rugby polo cloth.

When it’s especially chilly, consider the Buck Mason Field-Spec Rugby Polo as your base layer, topped off by, say, a Buck Mason sweater and a trusty Buck Mason waxed coat. Note that the Buck Mason Field-Spec Rugby Polo has been garment-washed for added texture and visual interest, and it’s a ready substitute in place of an Oxford shirt beneath a blazer.

The split hem falls in line with classic polo design details, and the price on the Buck Mason Field-Spec Rugby Polo ($88) is similar to other stylish Buck Mason shirts. However, the Buck Mason Field-Spec Rugby Polo shakes up the design just enough to make it a fun change of pace this winter, all for under $100. Sounds like a can’t-miss menswear purchase in the new year.

Style Pick of the Week: Faherty Cloud Long-Sleeve Henley – Your New Go-To Winter Layer

Best long-sleeve henley for men.

The time has come to take stock of your collection of winter style essentials as we roll through this, the first winter weekend of 2023: What’s on your mind and in your wardrobe? Granted, I can’t help with every single thing on your to-do list, but I can indeed help you select and wear one of the best henleys for men all winter long, starting right this very instant. The henley in question is the Faherty Cloud Long-Sleeve Henley, one that’s very much deserving of your time and energy as you look to amp up your rugged winter style picks.

HELM Boots- $50 Off Your First Purchase

Of course, the Faherty Cloud Long-Sleeve Henley is part of Faherty’s lineup of ultra-soft, versatile, classic-meets-modern menswear designed and produced by a family-owned company (with a special focus on East Coast surf style, for good measure).

It’s the perfect complement to one of the best men’s flannel shirts also produced by Faherty, but it goes beyond the surface — the quality and design are more than enough to justify its $118 price tag (trust me on this — scroll on for more!).

Best henley for men this winter.

The Faherty Cloud Long-Sleeve Henley naturally nods to the athletic roots of the style as a trusted shirt for rowers in Henley-on-Thames — note the customizable three-button placket and the raglan-stitched sleeves and shoulders for maximum ease of movement. That mobility should prove mighty useful whether you wear the Faherty Cloud Long-Sleeve Henley on its own, layered up underneath your favorite flannel shirt or styled casually with an American-made hoodie.

HELM Boots

That laidback nature makes the Faherty Cloud Long-Sleeve Henley a new go-to essential for days at home or even in the office (simply pair it with a soft-shouldered wool-blend blazer this winter), but there’s another key that makes this henley a true must-have. Crucially, the Faherty Cloud Long-Sleeve Henley is made from Faherty’s signature, super-soft fabric — in this case, it’s a blend of cotton and modal that feels exceptional against your skin.

The fabric on the Faherty Cloud Long-Sleeve Henley also boasts a pleasingly textured look, turning this from an undershirt into a true winter style move. Like we talked about earlier, your new favorite henley is pricier than average at $118, but your wardrobe will be all the better for it this winter.

The Tuesday Steal: The Billy Reid Winter Event Delivers Up to 50 Percent Off the Best Menswear

Best winter menswear on sale now.

Folks, wishing you all a Happy New Year, and many thanks for joining me to start 2023 off the right way. And what better way to kick off a new year and a new week than with some of the best menswear deals out there, particularly a covetable sale from one of America’s best menswear designers? We’ve talked quite a lot lately on the blog about Billy Reid menswear deals, be it the brand’s Holiday Sale or the exceptional Billy Reid Winter Event (today’s featured deal of choice).

It can all be found in the envy-inducing Billy Reid Men’s Sale section, and trust me when I say these deals are about as good as it gets. The Billy Reid Winter Event is a crucial chance to get valuable in-season gear at excellent discounts, whether it’s 30 percent off the Billy Reid Cooper Coat (seen at the top of the page) or an astonishing 50 percent off the timeless Billy Reid Tuscumbia Shirt.

And here’s where your humble Brooklyn style writer comes into play: I wrote about the best men’s turtlenecks for winter over at Men’s Journal. Time to really start dressin’ this season, folks.
  • If you follow me on Instagram or keep up with my other freelance writing pursuits, then you’ll know I also write about some of the best whiskey on the market. With that in mind, here’s a fun one – I wrote about the best winter whiskey over at Maxim, with a special focus on whiskey I’ve tried as of late (excluding Pappy Van Winkle, sadly). Cheers to the season, folks!
  • In case you missed it here on the blog earlier this week, allow me to jog your memory with my guide to some of the best new Chelsea boots on the market. In fact, head over here to read about the HELM Finn Chelsea Boots, a super-comfortable, rugged-yet-refined pair of men’s leather boots that I’ve been wearing back in Brooklyn as of late. They’re exceptionally stylish and dependable out of the box, with no break-in period, and I can’t recommend ’em enough. Go to it, my friends.

It’s a particularly special winter Friday heading into what should be a lovely weekend (in Florida and elsewhere!), so here’s hoping you get the chance to kick back, enjoy a cold craft beer or some of the best winter whiskey, and spend time with loved ones. If these style tips help you along the way, that’s all the better. Fret not, though: You’ll still be getting two blog posts this weekend from yours truly, so bookmark ’em until Monday.
