These Are The Only Boots You’ll Need This Fall

Built on the simple premise that boots should be both practical and stylish, Thursday Boots sets out to provide its customers with minimalist designs that are as fashion-forward as they are timeless.

“We really started this company because we felt there was something missing from the market that we wanted ourselves,” began co-founder Nolan Walsh. “We were looking for an option that had the ruggedness of a work boot, yet the sophistication of a fashion boot, something that could transition seamlessly between a variety of different settings.”

Walsh describes the search as a classic “Goldilocks situation” in which no one boot seemed to perfectly fit all the criteria they were searching for.

Frustrated, they decided to strike out on their own and wound up developing the boots that would come to comprise the Thursday Boots collection.

What sets the Thursday Boots aesthetic apart is its understated and hybrid nature. Each design in the line borrows not only from the durability of traditional heritage wear, but also from the trendiness of seasonal fashion boots. The result is a streamlined product that is as gorgeous as it is sensible.

“We wanted to make a high quality boot with a clean, minimalist look that could last for several seasons,” explained Walsh. “For us, the functional performance of the boot goes hand-in-hand with the visual design.”

This marriage of design and functionality can best be seen in the supple leather they use to craft their boots. Developed with experts at a tannery in Mexico, the leather is tough, yet retains a certain buttery smoothness that allow the boots to be broken in quickly.

Additionally, each boot comes equipped with a full glove leather lining interior, which molds to the foot over time.

The collection currently boasts seven different styles: the President, the Captain and the Diplomat (traditional laced, $199); the Duke (classic chelsea, $199); the Scout (stylish chukka, $149); the Vanguard and the Commander (thick-soled service-style, $249). The boots come in hues of tan, brown, and black, in either the brand’s trademark chrome leather or suede.

Product Review: This Is the Only Flannel Shirt You Need for Fall 2020
California Cowboy Flannel Shirt

Being an outdoor writer, flannel shirts have long played a role in my wardrobe, especially come fall, when they become my go-to shacket. After all, nothing beats the warm, soft embrace in this predominately plaid material during cooler mornings and evenings. And you don't have to be a lumberjack or urban hipster to appreciate this menswear staple, which looks great on just about everybody. But I thought I had a solid collection of flannel shirts until I discovered the High Sierra from California Cowboy, which claims that it "hugs you like a unicorn." While I can't attest to that, I can easily say that this should probably be your new favorite flannel shirt. Here's why.

Materials
I was intrigued from the first moment I saw the High Sierra on the brand’s website. Yes, its main selling point is the luxe Portuguese flannel exterior, but the shirt also comes with plenty of thoughtful details that justify a hard-won place in your closet. It's lined with a proprietary thermal fabric that really does feel like a unicorn's hug (if that was possible). And for all of your après activities, the shirt comes with a water-resistant dry pocket for safely stashing your phone and a bottle pocket for your bevies, keys, and other small items. During colder temps, the shirt comes with a hidden glove loop to store your mittens. There's also a sunglass loop to help secure your shades. Simply put, this shirt is comfortable and functional.
Fit
The High Sierra sports a slim fit. I typically wear large long-sleeve shirts but opted to size up to an XL for a more comfortable fit, and it still accommodates a t-shirt or base layer for extra warmth.
