The unofficial kick-off to summer is upon us, and we here at The Manual wanted to inspire your Memorial Day Weekend. From a trip to the beach, or hanging at the pool, to a grillin’ staycation, we’ve put together a few options for what you may need for this glorious three day, fun-filled long weekend.

Memorial Day Weekend

Filson – From it’s five pockets, this weekend bag is weather-resistant, and big enough to handle almost anything. Made of canvas and leather, it features a removable shoulder strap and rustproof hardware.

Vineyard Vines – The classic oxford is always go-to style staple. Laundered or semi-wrinkled, layered or worn alone, you can’t go wrong. 100% cotton-poplin makes comfortable all weekend long, and beyond.

Tailor Vintage – REVERSIBLE. Yes, you can pack it once, and wear it twice. 100% cotton-poplin reversing to cotton madras, makes these the ultimate weekend take-away short.

Beltology – Talk about comfortable! Worn effortlessly with jeans, khakis or shorts, it stretches, and has no holes like a tradition belt. This means you get a perfect fit every time. Maybe needed for that extra helping at your BBQ.

Greats – This footwear brand is one of The Manual favorite’s. The Royale is all about the details. Pairing an Italian sole with the true comfort of a plush footbed, make these the ideal sneaker to rock without socks. #nosocks
