We’ve covered Stock Mfg. Co in the past but this Chicago-based company has an impressive end-of-season sale going on that we think you need to check out.
Unlike most sales, where the inventory is pretty limited, there really are enough sizes and garments here to make a full outfit or two. And as we head into the fall there are plenty of mid-weight pants, long sleeve shirts and jackets.Let’s start your wardrobe with navy chinos, because every guy needs a pair.The 100% Cotton Buffalo Check Plaid Flannel shirt features contrasting pocket and the all-important elbow patches.I really like the indigo-dyed popover shirt.The Ike jacket above is made from cotton twill and features the classic styling of the WWII era jacket with a very cool lining.Ok, so now you have some pretty stylish items – and you saved a few bucks – so why not add a wallet to help complete the outfit.Not many of these are left in stock but, if you are a medium, check out this waxed cotton peacoat with wool collar.
There’s much more to see, so check it out.
Two days ago I went out for a bike ride and it was hot and humid. This morning it was cool and in the 60’s. I was caught off guard and found myself wanting to throw on a long sleeve shirt. I wasn’t motivated enough to dig out my fall clothes just yet, but I did feel inspired to research some men’s Henley shirts, which we haven’t written about before.
Flint and Tinder is a long-established brand with high quality merchandise (they make the Ten-Year Hoodie). Their henleys are 100% cotton and made in Los Angeles. The cotton is “marled,” meaning that subtly different colored yarns are used to create a multi-toned effect. They have short sleeves too, which isn’t a bad idea given that it is still August and we know the weather is going to heat up again.Buck Mason has a good selection of henley shirts, in both short and long sleeve. They are made with long-strand 100% cotton milled in Los Angeles.You can find James Perce Henleys at Nordstrom, along with a variety of other James Perce merchandise Made in the USA, for both men and women.Also at Nordstrom, Michael Stars long sleeve henleys for men.
For hemp fans, Jungmaven has a 45/55, hemp/cotton blend henley. Kathy has a few Jungmaven shirts and she loves them.
Duckworth’s Vapor Henley is made out of a blend of merino wool, cellulose and polyester which is supposed to make for a great wicking fabric.
If you take a small or extra small, right now there are multiple near-sellout henley shirts that you can grab, some at significant savings, at Huckberry. This link takes you to ALL Henleys, so scan the page and look for the very light grey “Made in USA” logo. (Above: Iron and Resin Paradigm Henley.)
