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

Komocean – Swim against the tide, is this brands tag line. These “Made in America” swim shorts can take you from beach to boardwalk with their updated classic cut and look. Their ultra soft lightweight microfiber fabric is treated by the same company that treats the fabric U.S. military swimwear.
