The Friday Read: The Perfect Flannel Shirt, a New Bottle Opener & Winter’s Best Field Jacket

The sleek leather watch that’s going to elevate any outfit.

Many thanks and cheers as we kick off today’s Friday Read, my friends! Doesn’t it seem like time is just … flying by? It sure seems like you’d do well to stay on track with the stylish leather watch from Miansai seen above. Yes indeed, the Miansai M12 Vintage Cognac Leather Watch is the one to buy this weekend. And given that we’re halfway through the month, I’d say your wardrobe and your footwear situation might be due for an upgrade — we’ll tackle that more below, but as we stomp through winter, crucial men’s style essentials like some of the best men’s leather boots should be on your radar. Or the best cardigan to buy now. Or a classic chambray shirt. You get the picture.

At any rate, it’s been a focus of mine over these past few weeks to really reach for quality pieces that stand the test of time (if you follow me on Instagram, you might recognize this!). Pieces like a classic shawl cardigan from Buck Mason, or some rugged leather boots from my pals at Danner¬†(as seen in this post). It’s been a fun exercise, one that I’m going to continue in the next few weeks. For now though, I’m very excited to host a trio of longtime Michigan friends in my suddenly-too-small Brooklyn apartment for the long holiday weekend — we’ll be visiting classic NYC haunts like McSorley’s Old Ale House¬†and also checking the unique Museum of the American Gangster (as one does). Again, you¬† can follow along with all the fun on my Instagram. Cheers to the weekend!

  • The best way to power through the doldrums of winter? Why, with the¬†perfect flannel shirt¬†from¬†Faherty Brand. Read more in¬†this post on the blog¬†covering exactly why you need a¬†new flannel shirt¬†in your cold-weather arsenal.
  • I’m all for cracking open a flavorful, rich beer at the end of the day — if you fall into the same category, you’d do well to pick up this¬†handsome-yet-utilitarian bottle opener¬†from Discommon, a feature I covered for GearMoose. Cheers!
  • Speaking of essentials to help you power through winter, this¬†durable field coat¬†is a winter outerwear essential. I¬† wrote recently on the blog about how it’s made to perform in the weather and look great while doing it, too. Yessir, the¬†Proof Field Jacket¬†could become a new favorite for the season.

Right then — what type of men’s style essentials are you looking forward to wearing this weekend (and beyond)? If you still need to step up your game in this young new year, look toward my favorite men’s style suggestions for winter. Or, rethink how you wear a classic staple like the best peacoat in your arsenal. Mix and match to your heart’s content, my friends. Have a great weekend, and thanks for reading!

#OOTD: How to Wear Jeans to the Office this Winter

Perhaps you’ve got a¬†stylish pair of black denim¬†in your closet — perhaps you’re even wearing that pair now. But lest you think that classic black jeans only work on the weekends or as you dress to head to a rock concert … think again. It’s 2019, and with that, we’re diving in today to examine how to wear jeans to the office this winter. And our featured product checks all the right boxes — the Flint and Tinder Jet Black Jeans¬†($118)¬†are as good as it gets.¬†Again, you’re not putting on just any old pair of jeans and calling it a day — wearing a¬†stylish pair of black denim¬†to the office only works if the jeans in question are¬†sleek and well-fitting, not baggy or overly faded. And you’ve got to complement that outfit the right way — in this case, a¬†classic sweater from Taylor Stitch¬†stands in for a blazer in terms of cool-yet-crisp style, while rugged leather boots from Nisolo substitute for dress shoes. We’re also sticking with an office-ready watch, a slim brown leather belt, and — naturally — an investment-level peacoat. I’ll let you figure out the rest below, though. To see how I’m dressing for the office this winter, head to my Instagram. Thanks for reading!

Slim jeans, plus a dependable sweater and stylish leather boots, make for a perfect office #OOTD.

  • The Slim Black Denim: Flint and Tinder Jet Black Jeans, $118¬†— Every guy needs a pair of stylish black denim in his closet — and yes, with a slim cut and a cool color, you can wear ’em to the office.
  • The Sweater: Taylor Stitch Rangeley Sweater, $168¬†— Shake up your winter sweater game with a classic sweater from Taylor Stitch — attainable, premium layering for winter.
  • The Shirt: Faherty Brand Melange Oxford Shirt, $118¬†— Can’t get enough of Faherty Brand? Neither can I. This classic Oxford shirt is less refined than a dress shirt, yet still polished, so you can certainly wear it for a casual day on the clock.
  • The Peacoat: Billy Reid Bond Peacoat, $695¬†— How are you fighting winter’s chill on your commute or your lunch break? Answer: A classic peacoat from Billy Reid.
  • The Boots: Nisolo Andres All-Weather Boots, $288¬†— Looking for sleek leather boots that are made to take on the weather? Nisolo has you covered.
  • The Stylish Casual Watch: Zodiac Chrono Quartz Watch, $495¬†— The right blend of office-ready style and everyday durability is a tricky one — this stylish casual watch from Zodiac checks all the right boxes, though.
  • The Socks: CHUP Fika Socks, $35¬†— We didn’t say you could skimp on your stylish socks, did we? CHUP makes some of the best pairs around — that’s a fact.
  • The Winter Grooming Essential: Bespoke Post Groomed Box, $45¬†— When you sign up for Bespoke Post, you get access to grooming essentials like these at a low price. You’re going to look great at the office in every possible way.
  • The Belt:¬†Taylor Stitch Stitched Belt in Whiskey,¬†$88¬†— As I say nearly every week, accessories shouldn’t fall by the wayside — this classic leather belt from Taylor Stitch proves that quite easily.
  • The Everyday Bag: Filson 24-Hour Tin Cloth Brief, $395¬†— Getting around in winter is a different beast — a rugged everyday bag from Filson is up to the challenge of the season’s worst.

Winter again demands that you navigate the chilly weather and nasty storms in style without missing a beat — that’s exceptionally true if you’re heading to the office. Again, that doesn’t mean you need to shelve your stylish black denim¬†until the weekend. In fact, it means you need to step up the rest of your game accordingly. So, I’d recommend you throw on a¬†classic peacoat from Billy Reid, then accessorize the rest of your outfit with pieces like the Taylor Stitch Rangeley Sweater — it’s a truly classic winter sweater that provides comfort and refined style. It should be complemented quite nicely by an equally¬†classic Oxford shirt from our friends at¬†Faherty Brand¬†— the premium fabric and timeless silhouette are winners in my book. Need to go even more tailored? Add a navy knit tie.

On the footwear front, you’re tackling the demands of navigating winter streets and also looking sharp for the office — enter¬†sleek leather boots¬†from the good folks at Nisolo. Your wrist game also should reflect both winter weather and office style, and the handsome Zodiac Chrono Quartz Watch makes that easy to do. Believe it or not,¬†stylish socks¬†from¬†CHUP¬†can also work nicely at the office — both as a conversation starter and an added touch of visual interest. Throwing on a¬†classic leather belt from Taylor Stitch¬†ties this whole outfit together quite nicely — don’t forget to bring your¬†rugged everyday bag from Filson¬†to your next meeting, though. The key with getting dressed for the office in winter all comes back to reaching for the right gear — gear that blends functionality with clean, classic style.

#OOTD: Here’s How You Should Dress for the Polar Vortex This Year

You’ll know it when you see it — the arrival of this year’s polar vortex. Inevitably, and especially if you live in a place like NYC, it’ll catch you at the worst possible time. So, how to dress for the polar vortex this year? Stylishly and with functionality in mind, of course. That’s where today’s #OOTD takes us, so put on your rugged Danner boots and get ready. We’re kicking things off with a tough winter parka, and it only gets better from there (good news, the parka comes from Flint and Tinder). From there, it’s pretty critical that you throw on a rugged sweater for warmth, along with an office-ready flannel shirt from the good folks at Faherty Brand. But, today’s #OOTD is wearable for the office, you say? Of course — there’s work to be done, even during the polar vortex. That’s why we’re also recommending a rugged, casual watch and some surprisingly tailored chore pants. The point is, again, you need to dress for anything and everything, and I think this rugged-yet-reliable #OOTD is the way to go. What say you? Find out the rest of today’s gear picks for yourself below — stay warm!

Winter really doesn’t stand a chance — bundle up accordingly.

  • The Jacket: Flint and Tinder Waxed Ridge Parka, $398¬†— The good folks at Flint and Tinder never fail to come through with amazing men’s style essentials, like this tough winter parka. Your new favorite winter jacket? Possibly.
  • The Rugged Sweater: Peregrine Waffle Crew Neck Jumper, $140¬†— You know those mornings when it’s too cold to go outside or do much of anything? This insanely warm winter sweater changes all that.
  • The Classic Shirt: Faherty Brand Brushed Apline Flannel Shirt, $148¬†— And the proper shirt to pair with that winter sweater? A classic flannel shirt from Faherty Brand, of course.
  • The Boots: Danner Raptor Boots, $240¬†— I really do love the boots churned out by Danner season after season — personally, the Raptor Boots have proven exceedinly comfortable, and pretty darn tough on top of that. Perfect for the polar vortex.
  • The Pants: Flint and Tinder Mill Pants, $98¬†— The polar vortex demands that you dress accordingly — hence, these tough chore pants to stomp through snow.
  • The Must-Have Weekender: Buffalo Jackson Dakota Weekender, $294.98¬†— Heading somewhere in spite of the snow? Just trying to haul your gear to your cabin or to your next job? This rugged weekender bag is perhaps the best new bag to buy now.
  • The Socks: Anonymousism MOC Pile Crew Socks, $22.50¬†— We talked about the boots to buy for this #OOTD, now let’s talk about the stylish socks¬†you need on your feet. Anonymousism makes each pair with form and function in mind.
  • The Watch: Huckberry x Lum-Tec Combat B-42 Watch, $499¬†— Although you’re dealing with a blizzard, that’s no time to let your accessories slip. This rugged, casual watch is an excellent option for winter.
  • The Tough Leather Gloves: Give’r 4-Season Waxed Gloves, $114 — Again, your accessories need to stay on point and carry you through the storm in style — these are an essential pair of winter gloves, no questions asked.
  • The Everyday Carry Essential: Taylor Stitch Drop Point Knife, $68¬†— In the spirit of getting the job done, you might find this Taylor Stitch Drop Point Knife handy if you’re tackling chores or projects outside.

Now, the polar vortex might seem tricky in matters of both style and survival — but it’s all about outfitting yourself accordingly. In my mind, that starts with new favorite winter jacket from Flint and Tinder. I’d say it’s one of the best men’s winter jackets out there, and it only gets better when you layer it over a classic flannel shirt from Faherty Brand, along with that insanely warm winter sweater we discussed earlier. The rest of your gear is truly on-point, too. Take those tough chore pants and the Danner Raptor Boots — there’s nearly no stopping you now. But wait, there’s more! Throw in a rugged, casual watch, grab an essential pair of winter gloves, then top it off by packing up a rugged weekender bag for whatever the day throws your way. Lest we forget, the Taylor Stitch Drop Point Knife is a handy everyday carry essential, and stylish socks are always a must-have. Now all you need is a roaring fire and a glass of whiskey — right? Right. Good luck out there, stay warm & stay stylish!
