Shoe King Allen Edmonds is Giving Away A Pair of Their Best-Sellers, the Sueded Strandmok 2.0.

If you’ve ever been on a mission to find the perfect pair of brogues, you probably started and ended your search with Allen Edmonds. Whether you’re looking for a pair to wear around the office, impress at the bar, or explore the city, they have a style for every occasion. With Fathers’ Day fast approaching, Allen Edmonds and The Manual are teaming up to give you a shot at the perfect gift that will make you dad’s favorite. We’re giving away a pair of Allen Edmonds’ Suede Strandmok 2.0 to one lucky winner who won’t have to spend hours and hours trying to find something dad will like.

The Strandmok 2.0 is the casualization of the original Strandmok. The 2.0 is made in the U.S.A. with the classic brogue detailing and form that made the original so popular, but small changes were made to accommodate warm weather and comfort. The 2.0 is outfitted with an ultra-lightweight Vibram sole that provides extra cushioning and makes them a great casual option for any occasion. These brogues can now be worn year-round thanks to their warm weather friendly construction. They are fully unlined which allows the shoe to breathe and makes going sockless in these on a hot, summer day so much easier. Also, with your bright summer wardrobes in mind, Allen Edmonds gave the 2.0 a color facelift. With choices like light brown, summer blue, and grey, you’ll be looking summer ready in your brand new Strandmok 2.0’s.

The Strandmok 2.0 isn’t the only Allen Edmonds style selling like crazy this summer. Allen Edmonds is currently in the midst of its Fathers’ Day sale that runs through June 19th. The sale features $100 off select styles, including many brand new styles for spring and summer, such as the Sea Island Suede Loafer, Schreier Tassel Dress Loafers, and the Boone Plain Toe Casual Shoes. With a sale like this from a brand known for its shoes, there’s bound to be a deal that’s too good to pass up.

Some other styles that we’re diggin’ this summer from Allen Edmonds’ new collection are their Liverpool Chelsea Dress Boot, Leiden Wingtip Blucher, and the St. John’s Double Monk. If you haven’t been living under a rock, you’ve probably witnessed the resurrection of the classic Chelsea boot. These were made popular by The Beatles in the 60s and have found their way back into the fashion limelight in recent years. The Liverpool Chelsea by Allen Edmonds is made with premium leather, constructed with an elastic side panel for sliding on and off with ease, and comes in two colors black and brown. The Leiden and St. John’s Double Monk are classics that haven’t skipped a beat. The Leiden is made with its traditional brogue detailing and wingtip design that separates itself from the rest. The St. Johns Double Monk is constructed with double buckles and is versatile enough to wear with a suit, jeans and everything in between.

The 10 best men’s workout shirts to help you get fit in 2023

There are multiple things to consider when purchasing new workout apparel. You want to make sure you do your due diligence beforehand. When looking for the optimal workout shirt, functionality often takes precedence over style, for most men. After all, a minimalist cotton t-shirt is ideal, but it won't look (or smell) so great after an hour-long workout, especially if your working out, outdoors. That's why, in the past decade, some of our favorite activewear brands like Lululemon, Vuori, and Under Armour have developed breathable fabrics with moisture-wicking and odor-fighting technology that are now practically must-haves for any exercise gear, especially when it comes to making high-quality shirts.

That being said, not all workout tops are created equal. When it comes to finding the right workout fit, make sure it doesn't feel too tight or baggy around your underarms, your shoulders, or across your chest, i.e., the areas you exercise most. We sifted through some of the most popular brands to select the best workout shirts that are as practical as they are fashionable. Here are our top picks for the best men's workout shirts of 2023.

Every holiday has its own traditions and customs. And St. Patrick's Day is no different.

Here are a few ideas on subtly keeping your style intact while protecting against the invasion of pinches the day brings.

We've rounded up our favorite gear picks from our favorite brands for this green-centric holiday. You don't have to go over the top and throw on shamrocks left and right. Subtle retro sneakers, a handsome olive green crewneck, a classic green tie ... all of these picks will work more than acceptable for a day we love to celebrate (in style and responsibly, of course).
