Planning ahead is no small feat. Paying bills, showing up to your dentist appointment, having a dinner reservation locked and loaded when your wedding anniversary rolls around—we find these side effects of modern life counterintuitive to man’s most basic instinct, i.e., to kick back with a cold one and live in the now.

Luckily, our annual Anniversary Sale makes getting ahead of the game second nature. Fact: Besides being our best sale event of the year, Anniversary is also a fall preview. We give you a chance to score leather jackets, work boots, dark denim, and everything else you’ll need for cool weather at reduced prices NOW, in the middle of summer, before they ever hit the floor at full price.

You can thank us later. For now, keep reading to see the Anniversary items that caught our eye while roaming our flagship store on opening day.

You met him (mostly from the knee-down) in our Sneakers in Seattle video and corresponding Q&A. You might have caught his hip-hop group, The Physics, performing live on globally streaming public radio station KEXP. Your fiancée has probably even heard one of his tracks 1,000 times while analyzing the latest slo-mo wedding video craze.

His name is Thig Nat, and the “Nat” part of his name is short for “Natural”—a reference that applies to his abilities on a microphone as well as his innate knack for wearing classic, versatile clothes that look good without trying too hard.

Keep reading to see how Thig put a modern spin on three menswear staples that he selected from our store: a henley, a trench coat, and slip-on sneakers.

We hold some truths to be self-evident. Among them: There are certain items that every man, from punk rocker to real-estate agent, requires in order to successfully and stylishly face the season at hand. “Essentials,” one might call them. Facing the prospect of springtime, as we currently are, one of those essentials is undoubtedly a well-fitting, impeccably detailed, office-to-evening navy blazer.

Style Profiles. As part of our twice-a-year Men’s Shop Catalog, we profiled 3 real men of style and substance. Here, self-made lensman Joshua Woods.

Joshua Woods is no stranger to readers of Men’s Shop Daily; he gave us an inside view from the European Men’s Fashion Weeks and popped up in our Street Etiquette at NYFW coverage. The 27-year-old has been getting a lot of attention for his work, and it’s obvious why. Woods possesses a unique point of view that’s evident in his photography—and, we’d say, his personal style (you don’t see nearly enough men sporting a bucket hat these days).
