Take 15% off the Entire Line of DUER L2X Performance Denim

This content was produced in partnership with DUER.

Denim might be one of the best fabrics known to man, and few pieces are more essential for a man’s wardrobe than a pair of classic blue jeans. But as much as we love it, there’s no denying that some of the best aspects of denim are also some of its biggest drawbacks: Namely, that thick, canvas-like cotton weave isn’t always the most breathable, flexible, or most well-suited to active lifestyles. DUER looks to change that with its L2X Performance Denim, made for all-weather wear, including — yes — hot and humid climates.

Since warmer weather is headed our way — well, for most of us anyway — now’s the perfect opportunity to stock up on outfits and apparel for the hot summer months. You might be happy to know that for a limited time, Manual readers can take 15% off the entire line with the checkout code MANUAL. Just pop that promo code into the appropriate field at checkout and you’ll see the discount. We’ve picked out some of our favorite performance denim options below, as well!

DUER Performance Denim Slim Jeans

We love a pair of selvedge raws as much as the next denim head, and while that will always have a place in any man’s jeans rotation, there invariably comes a time when that stiff, weighty fabric isn’t the most satisfying to wear all day. That’s why you want to add at least a couple of pairs of performance jeans for those days when your raw denim is staying in the wardrobe (and not in the freezer, please). DUER’s L2X Performance Denim strikes that perfect balance between ruggedness and ease of wear with its cool-wearing stretch fabric that breathes and moves with your body, and these slim-fit jeans are the perfect cut for it. Also available in straight and relaxed fits.

DUER All-Weather Performance Denim Slim Jeans

L2X Performance Denim is made with a blend of organic cotton, Coolmax all-season polyester, and Lycra spandex. Coolmax fiber wicks moisture and heat away from the body to keep you cool, while that little bit of Lycra spandex gives the jeans enough stretch for them to flex and maneuver like you do, without compromising that denim feel. But if you want something seriously rugged, the DUER All-Weather denim collection adds a polyester membrane that makes these jeans water- and wind-proof. Other design touches include hidden gussets which further improve range of motion and reflective details that make you a little more visible in low light conditions. Also available in relaxed fit.

Whether you’re adding some new pairs to your rotation or you’re fresh to the world of denim, this is a great chance to score a deal on a pair of cool-wearing jean shorts that are perfect for spring and summer.

DUER Performance Denim Stay Dry Jacket

The only thing as essential for a man’s wardrobe as a pair of jeans is a rugged denim trucker jacket. These tend to be pretty tough-wearing in general — they’re made of denim, after all — but finding a jean jacket that’s both nicely fitting and easy to move in can often seem like an endless quest. The DUER Stay Dry jean jacket solves that decades-old conundrum by combing the iconic trucker jacket design with its Performance Denim organic cotton/Coolmax polyester/Lycra spandex fabric, with the added touch of a DWR water-resistant coating that repels liquids (be it rain or an unfortunate spill) to keep you dry.

Veja introduces all new V-90, a throwback Veja sneaker with a familiar aesthetic
Veja brings modern sustainability to '90s-era aesthetics, and we love it
V-90 sneakers on marble floor

In the ever-evolving landscape of men's luxury footwear, Veja has introduced their latest creation: the V-90 sneaker. This elegant amalgamation of throwback aesthetics and modern comfort is a unisex sneaker that caters to those who seek a harmonious blend of fashion, sustainability, and innovation.

Inspired by the design ethos of the '90s, the V-90 pays homage to an era marked by bold styles and expressive individuality. This throwback aesthetic, carefully interwoven with modern flair, makes the V-90 a versatile choice that seamlessly transitions from casual outings to more upscale settings.
Sourcing excellence and organic traced leather
At the heart of the V-90's allure is its commitment to ethical sourcing and the use of premium materials. Veja's approach to leather sourcing is exemplified by the inclusion of O.T. leather (Organic Traced leather) in the V-90 sneaker. Sourced exclusively from 100% certified organic farms in Uruguay, not only is it free from the harmful effects of pesticides and chemicals, but it also emerges as a testament to Veja's dedication to a greener and cleaner fashion industry.  O.T. leather goes through a mechanical beating process that makes it bendable. (The leather in the V-90 sneaker was also tanned in Brazil, and uses fewer dyes than conventional leather.)

In the long list of must-haves men need for their closet, one of the most important to pick up is Chelsea boots. From wearing them with suits to wearing them with jeans and flannels, these will be some of the most valuable shoes in your closet, especially in the fall. Men's Chelsea boots are versatile and necessary, and these are the ones that will work with everything you already have in your collection, simply taking the place of some of your favorite shoes and extending the life of each.

A brief history of Chelsea boots
Chelsea boots get their name from the fashionable Chelsea district of London. Chelsea was the epicenter of fashion and music during the 1960s. It was here that fashion designers resurrected a style of ankle boot first worn by Queen Victoria in the 1840s. Shoemaker Joseph Sparks Hall adapted a traditional English riding boot for everyday use by the Queen. To make them more comfortable, he lowered the shaft to ankle height, and to make them easier to get on and off, he added elastic gussets on each side. The style became popular during the late 1800s but disappeared during WWI.
