There are new box options this month:
Give your wingtips the day off.
A clean and classic pair of sneakers is a foolproof style move. Whether you’re more of a dark-jeans-and-leather-jacket or a chinos-and-oxford kind of guy (or somewhere in the middle), they’ll ground your outfit and keep you comfortable.
Round out the look with some upgraded leather laces, which add a more rugged vibe, and no-show socks to keep your ankles breezy, and you’ll be ready to put your best foot forward.
Canvas Lace-Up Sneakers
These are one of those sartorial standbys that no guy should be without. Resilient canvas is constructed into a classic low top that’d look right at home on a beachfront boardwalk, a downtown side street, and every mile in between. The insoles are filled with massaging air bubbles for a softer step, and the minimal design lends an easygoing versatility.
BucketFeet got their start with a single pair of sneakers. The co-founders met in Argentina, where Aaron (an artist) drew onto Raaja’s (a backpacker) sneakers before the two parted ways. Those shoes sparked conversations across six continents throughout the rest of Raaja’s travels, and Bucketfeet was born soon afterwards. Their solid colorways have a classic low-key style, and the uniquely printed ones are designed by emerging artists to bring some art to the everyday.
Leather Shoelaces, 40″
Line of Trade
Even the best pair of shoes could use a lace upgrade every now and then. Add these made-in-the-USA ones onto your new sneakers, your favorite pair of boots, or whatever other pair you think could use a slightly tougher vibe, then trim to size.
Bare your ankles while keeping your feet nice and fresh with the stealth bomber of socks. These no-shows are as soft and comfortable as any other high-quality pair of socks, but are completely hidden once you lace up. And thanks to the strategically-placed traction grip at the heel, they stay firmly in place throughout long days of running around town
A great outfit starts with great basics.
And if you want the best of the best, you want Mack Weldon. Throw on a pair of their upgraded boxer briefs, and you’ll wonder how you ever put up with anything else. You get three of them to add to your rotation – and a relevant addition to your grooming routine to help you stay fresh – but fair warning: once you get used to them, you’ll want to fill up your entire underwear drawer.
Boxer Briefs, Set of 3
Just like a meticulously crafted suit or a pair of bench-made shoes, these take an obsessive approach to the details. That means you get an extra secure no-roll waistband. Firmly anchored stay-put legs that won’t ride up throughout the day. Mesh zones in all the right places to improve airflow. And a mid-thigh fit that’s extra handsome, for those who have a stake in such things.
They’re made from a blend of long-staple cotton (that’s the good stuff), stretchy lycra, and silky smooth modal, which feels terrific, breathes easily, and won’t bunch up. If you don’t think they’re the most comfortable underwear you’ve ever tried on, you might as well give up the search altogether.
Body Powder, 10g
Use a quick hit of this sweat- and funk-absorbing body powder on your chest, underarms, or any other place that could use a helping hand to stay fresh. It leaves you with a silky feel and a light oak aroma, so you’ll feel dry and cool all day.
A great cocktail starts with great booze.
Or, even better, great booze that you made yourself. But don’t stop there – add some top shelf tonic to your creation, then pour into a tumbler that looks as good as you do. It’s all packed into this custom version of W&P Design’s homemade gin kit, which we upgraded with some extra supplies so you can mix with the best of them.
The Homemade Gin Kit
All you need to make beautifully flavored gin is this kit, an inexpensive bottle of vodka, and a day and a half’s worth of patience. You’ll get:
- A 750ml bottle
- A fine stainless steel strainer
- A stainless steel funnel
- A pack of juniper berries
- A blend of aromatic botanicals
The process couldn’t be easier – just follow the included instructions to infuse the juniper and botanicals, strain, and get ready to mix up the best negroni, G&T, or martini you’ve ever tasted.
Enamelware Tumbler Set, 12oz
These strikingly unique tumblers might not make your drink taste any better, but they’ll definitely give you some style points. The sturdy enamel-over-metal build was designed by W&P, then crafted by a manufacturer that’s been in business for nearly a century. Fill ’em with ice and start pouring when you want to break the mold and impress your drinking buddy.
Tonic Water, 10oz
Seltzer, cane sugar, quinine, all-natural botanicals, and clean design meld into this refreshing take on tonic. It’s got all the sweet, bitter, and subtly sour notes you need to round out your next two cocktails, whether you go with a classic gin and tonic or something a little more special.
The right pair of socks have got a little bit of flash, extra-soft fabric, and construction that’ll keep them stepping for years to come. These options have all that and then some, with a versatile range of colors and styles to brighten your day with a little bit of attitude.
Each pair is from Etiquette Clothiers, who’ve perfected the art of men’s basics. Their soft and strong yarns, careful craftsmanship, and sophisticated design add up to collections that are as refined as they are comfortable. Each sock is knit from the finest fabric blends in 240 seconds – twice that of the competition – for a finished product with all the right details.
You’ll get six pairs of socks total, three of which you can swap out for other styles to refine your look. And they all comfortably fit sizes 8–12.
Also, Bespoke Post has brought back the Weekender Box:
Special Edition Weekender Bag, 20″ length x 12″ high, 8″ opening
Bespoke Post Custom Series
This thing goes way back. The style was originally used by stonemasons to haul their tools to a day’s work, and we figured that a mason bag could work wonders for the modern guy, too. So we custom designed our own spin on the style, which proved to be one of our most popular offerings ever. Now, it’s back by popular demand.
We used thick and capable canvas with an inner pocket and heavy-duty reinforced frame, so it’s built to last. The handles and buckles are quality leather, a rugged canvas shoulder strap clips onto reinforced D rings, and multiple eye-catching colorways mean you can customize your look. It all lends extra durability and a more sophisticated vibe that’ll look sharp no matter where you’re headed.
