Certain long weekends — particularly Memorial Day — call for style you can take with you. That is, essentials that are durable, well-fitting and cut out for travel and beyond. Given all those tough requirements, it’s ideal that the fine folks at Huckberry have plenty of your favorite Memorial Day style essentials on hand, from slim chinos to versatile tees and a great bag. Whether you’re in need of something to carry your essential chambray shirt or other everyday items, Huckberry has what you’re looking for. The fact that they’re offering free shipping site-wide now through Monday at midnight makes it even better (oh, and you don’t need a code — but it’s only good for US-based residents). These pieces are definitely investments, but they should pay off long past this weekend.
Made from Martexin waxed canvas in a rich Field Tan color and featuring the finest zippers money can buy (from Riri), this bag is crafted in America and packs a serious punch for a weekend that calls for durable luggage.
Bellroy Lowdown Wallet [$78]
This slim wallet is made from premium full-grain vegetable tanned leather in a sleek black color — talk about subtle and stylish. It features room for up to 10 cards, and holds cash, too. Slide it into the front pocket of denim or chinos without breaking up your slim silhouette — after all, a refined wallet is definitely a style upgrade you need to make.
If you’re looking to pack light, reach for a tee that you can wear while traveling, then smarten up with an unconstructed blazer for dinner. The soft wash and rich Bleached Ink colorway make it a worthy complement to broken-in selvedge denim or khaki shorts, plus classic spring sneakers.
Because no trip is complete without solid footwear to get you from point A to point A, a pair of ethically sourced and constructed boots are the way to go. The Greenflex plays off the classic desert boot silhouette yet uses Italian leather, a comfortable, biodegradable rubber sole and a memory foam footbed for comfort. Pair these with that Flint and Tinder pocket tee for day-to-night style.
Apolis Cotton Civilian Chino [$178]
Everything that Apolis does, from its smart indigo chore coats to its tailored wool sweatpants is well-designed, well-built and ridiculously high-quality. That’s absolutely the case with its Cotton Civilian Chino, cut from lightweight, breathable cotton and featuring a tailored fit. You’ve just met your new favorite summer chinos.
