A few links for your perusal as I try to remember why I haven’t written one of these roundups in nine months…
- My wife starts every day with one of those big 24 oz. Tervis Tumblers filled with hot water and lemon. When she finishes that, she refills it with cold water and sips on it the rest of the day. It’s never more than a few feet away. I used to eye-roll her hydration habit, but like with most everything, my wife is right. So when Stanley recently sent over a gift package of products, I eyeballed the mammoth matte black travel cup and began my copycat plan. Mine is 40 oz., fits snugly into my car’s cupholder and has been dubbed the Manly Stanley by my smug better half. It also keeps liquid ice cold (or piping hot) for hours, and refilled once during the day, I more than satisfy the daily 64 oz. recommended by smart people way healthier than me. Stanley: Adventure Vacuum Quencher 40 oz.
- Frequenting many men’s lifestyle and gear/apparel sites, I’d come across the brand Grayers a bunch but had never tried any of their products. That changed last month when I used a leftover Christmas gift card to grab a couple of their short-sleeve button downs, like the one pictured above. Glad I did: they are the early leader in the clubhouse for my favorite purchase of 2017. The lightweight twill is T-shirt soft, and the fit nails the middle-ground between too slim and too boxy. With jeans and some slip ons, it’s a great summer night look. Grayers: Summer Twill Shirt (Huckberry has more short-sleeve button-down options here.)
- My friends at Huckberry just did a spring catalog in Hawaii and I couldn’t Kayak flights fast enough. … Digging the contrast collar and cuffs on Criquet’s new club shirts. … After a couple years of touting their products, J&T is now officially an affiliate partner of Olivers Apparel. Their All-Over Shorts are essential. … The NFL draft hats are out, and they continue to be unwearable. … The college shirts over at Tailgate, on the other hand, are awesome and currently on a pretty sizable markdown.
