…and a Brooklyn Boot Freebie!

Yup! We are offering a free weekender bag with every purchase of our American made boots or shoes on BrooklynBoot.com made between Friday, May 22 and Monday, May 25th.  The bag is super lightweight and comes in classic navy blue canvas.

It’s perfectly spacious, built to accommodate a weekend away, or hold your accouterments for work on a casual Friday. The bags will ship separately from your order and should arrive 2-3 weeks after you get your boots.

Happy Memorial Day, peeps!

This weekend marks the official begin to your awesome summer. It’s the first extended weekend of the year that we get to spend outside delighting in warm weather. Some of us will get the grills going and serve up delicious cheese stuffed burgers, some of us will complain that the cheesy Memorial Day parade our town is throwing is clogging up the main roads, and some of us will get too overly competitive playing backyard wiffle ball. It’s fine, we all get a little too into the game sometimes. All in good fun right? (But seriously if you can’t catch a pop fly don’t even bother showing up to my barbecue.)

To celebrate our, so far, favorite weekend of the year, we’ve compiled some style tips to accommodate your three day weekend.

Oakley Radar EV Sunglasses

oakleys

 

Who cares if they’re a little pricey. They’re Oakleys, and they have cool ass frames, and they’re polarized which means the sun in your eyes won’t be a sufficient excuse when you can’t see the volleyball coming at you. Buy at zappos.com, $190.

The North Face Horizon Hat

Keep cool in a lighter shade, like this Dune Beige tan from The North Face. This cap is lightweight, not nerdy, and thanks to its sweatproof and water resistant fabric, it can easily become your new go-to when hitting the links over the summer. Shop at thenorthface.com, $25.

Patagonia Men’s Stretch Wavefarer Board Shorts

Nothing suits you better than a pair of classic board shorts. I mean it. These shorts have a self-lined waistband and a drawstring, so you can rest assured that no one on the beach will see your unmentionables when the big waves start up. Plus, Patagonia is awesome. Shop at patagonia.com, $69.

AIRism Mesh Crew Neck T-Shirt

AIRism, available at Uniqlo, was designed to keep the wearer cool and dry all day. The fabric has been engineered with anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties that help keep the stink away. An absolutely must for the active guys who plan on showering by jumping in the nearest pool and calling it a day. Shop at uniqlo.com, $12.90.

Brooklyn Boot Company “Belmont” Derby

These bad boys can be saved for later in the night, when all the games are said and done, and you feel like cleaning it up a bit. Clueless about what else to wear? We’ll leave you with this: our Summer Uniform Guide.
