Just about every week, we find something to drool over at Huckberry, an online shop that wrangles storied products at members-only prices. Over the past year since we became aware of the what Richard, Andy and Alex are up to, they’ve exploded onto the market as sensible purveyors of American-made goods.
So, we couldn’t have been happier when they asked us to team up with them and curate a week-long flash sale of some of our favorite brands. That sale starts today. We’re pretty pumped about the lineup—so take a look, and if something catches your eye, get clickin’.
Chore coats from Buckshot Sonnny’s

AROUND THE ‘NET:
PREVIEW: Early next week, we’ll have a Q&A with Troy Tarantino and J Henley, men’s design director for Lands End. He says some exciting things are brewing with the Canvas line, and we can confirm. Stay tuned.
Now, then. To the weekend!
Jeff has declared that this is his new summer blazer. Would you wear it?
Look, we’re feeling guilty that we haven’t posted in two full weeks. It’s one part being busy with real life, but it’s two parts working on awesome stuff to come in the next fortnight or so. Stuff like an online shopping hitlist, shirt reviews, a giveaway, and more.
Don’t miss it.
But in the meantime, here’s a quick scan of relevant news and sales across the Interwebs. Knock yourselves out!
Speaking of Lands’ End, they’re hosting an event in Chicago this coming Thursday. We’ll be there talking shop with J Henley (the men’s design director), and we’d love to see you. Here are the details:
When: Thursday, April 19 from 5 to 7 p.m.
Where: 316 Barber Spa (by the Board of Trade)
Alright. Weekend. Go hang around or something:
We’ve got links galore. Seeing as the work week is pretty much over, make it look like you’re being productive with this “research.” Oh, and there’s even some sale intel at the end. Ch-ch-check it.
Psst: Sale! The dudes at Huckberry are at it again (as they are every week). Here’s what’s up now:
This stuff ends on Tuesday, April 3. Move fast.
The men of the Midwestyle can hardly contain our excitement at 1) being all back together and 2) the bittersweet return to our old college town for the third largest documentary film festival in the world. Every year during the first weekend of March, thousands of people descend on Columbia, Mo., to have their minds blown by movies that offer little slivers of knowledge about what life is like for others across the world.
There are buskers. There are costumes. There is food and drink. There are women who ask their boyfriends to marry them.
True/False makes people do wondrous things. If you enter the weekend (a.k.a. Camp Brainwash) feeling rosy and positive about the world, you will leave it with a new, deeper understanding that not everything is as it seems.
Here’s a taste:
So. Stay tuned. We’ve got lots of exciting content coming up about this weekend. And if you missed out, maybe it’ll give you a few reasons to go next year.
Be sure to get over to Huckberry for a rad new sale curated by menswear wunderkind Marisa Zupan of The Significant Other. Here’s what you can get your greedy little paws on:
This all ends Tuesday, March 6. Don’t miss it.
