Best new for men this week, December 17, 2021


I just drank a large amount of DayQuil, hoping that this feeling in my throat, which feels like just being scratched by an alley cat, will go away before the official start of the vacation. I don’t intend to travel too far, but I don’t want to stay locked inside either. Of course, I’m going to wear a mask and socialize, but the thought of staying home for another year gives me anxiety. It will not arrive.

I plan on doing some hikes as the city is warmer than it has ever been in winter. And Adidas has exactly what I need for those long hikes. I also have a friend who bought a house in Nyack (of all places), after decades as an uncompromising New Yorker, and I plan to bring a Banda bag, Carhartt WIP x Bodega chore coat and Clarks x Sweet Chick boots for the train ride. Indeed, all of them look pretty good to eat, especially the boots, which are said to resemble chicken and waffles. Finally, a friend of mine just spent a week in Aspen, skiing and, you know … doing winter stuff. I’m really bad at hitting the slopes, but I sure look like a pro in a Prada and Aspenx jacket.

This week’s men’s clothing releases have it all and more. And if you want to do any of these activities – and you don’t need to take cold medicine – make sure you have mastered them now so you can get them before the New Year.
