whats bag labor day

The last unofficial weekend of summer is upon us.  So The Manual has pulled some great options to wear, no matter if you spend it stay-cationing or going out of town. Labor Day weekend is here.

Board-AL.L. Bean – A durable tote that pairs camo, color and great leather details.  Canvas with a water-repellent red bottom.

Bills Khakis – Hemingway inspired, this linen twill sport shirt will wrinkle but still gives a finished look.

Bonobos  – A sweatshirt henley is the ultimate combo for cool evenings around a campfire.

Burkman Bros.  – With a cargo pocket, this floral board short could pull double duty, be it at the beach or backyard barbecue.

Caputo & Co. – Featuring brass hardware, this brown braided leather triple wrap bracelet with black trim looks great alone or layered with your favorite casual watch.

August – Made by local artisans in California, this bi-fold wallet is crafted of Horween leather and pairs form and function with its numerous pockets and sleeves.

Sperry Top-Sider –   A dressed down wingtip can dress up any weekend look. This pair is built to absorb up to 30 percent of shock and vibration.

Board-BTodd Snyder – From work to weekend, this fleece shawl cardigan is a versatile piece for any guy, anywhere.

Superdry – Get tank’d !  Great for the water’s edge or a last summer’s softball game (with beer), this all cotton tank is a staple.

Patagonia – This 21” striped Supplex board short is great from beach to bar or a backyard grill fest.

Coach  – ‘Keep It All Together’ with an electronic cord zip leather pouch.  This is a smart solution to a spaghetti of cords!

Cole Haan – Yes, we love Cole Haan for their awesome shoes but also for their handsome sunglasses.

Graf & Lantz – Protect your shades with this minimal, soft and lightweight merino wool felt glasses sleeve.

Vineyard Vines –   Carrying the stripe trend to comfy flip-flops. From ship to shore, these are fast drying and easy to pack.

Board-CFossil  – Perfect to layer or on its own, a striped tee says ‘maritime’ without looking like a sailor.

Freemans Sporting Club – Using traditional ikat dyeing techniques, this camp shirt is relaxed and weekend ready.

Penfield  – Who doesn’t love a fish print chino? What more needs to be said?

Skagen – Best known for their baller watches, now Skagen keeps your iPad safe on the go.

Alexander Olch – A small grey and white seersucker notebook is perfect for taking digits at the beach.

Filson – When stainless steel and bridle come together to be a flask, take your single rye whisky in-hand for the weekend.

Tretorn – The Official Preppy Handbook made it a staple, but this canvas tennis shoe was born 50 years ago. #oldskool

Board-DMalin + Goetz – If you’re in a hurry, just grab and go with this travel well everything kit.  It contains six 1 oz. products to keep you well groomed.

Tani – This striped boxer brief is super soft and wicks away 50 percent more moisture than cotton.

Wurkin Stiffs – More Stripes.  Nylon is the perfect lightweight fabric for a dopp kit.
