The Colorblocked Cardigan: Your Layering Friend

The colder (and snowier) it gets, the more creative we have to be when it comes to layering. We’re big fans of avoiding puffy, down filled jackets and opting for smart layering tricks instead. Grab a thick denim shirt, layer with a chunky, vintage inspired cardigan (the shawl collar helps keep your neck warm when buttoned fully) and pair with your favorite wool topcoat for a layered look thats slim and really damn warm. A classic Red Wing boot will keep you moving when things get slushy (and will look bad-ass with the rest of your look).

What To Wear Now: End Of January

Screen Shot 2016-01-20 at 8.23.33 PM

It’s an awkward time of year. There are no holiday parties to dress festively for, temperatures are way too cold to wear half of the shit filling store shelves, we’re kind of grumpy. To make shopping and deciding what to wear a bit easier for the next month or so, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite and affordable pieces. Click on the hotspot next to each item to browse & shop…enjoy, fellas.





Winter Sweater Update: Classic Shoulder Patches

As temped as you are to load up on all of sale sweaters we’re seeing stacked in the stores, you have to reign it in. We need another fair isle sweater like we need hole in the head. When picking up some new pieces, January is a tricky month. Be sure to:

1) Get pieces that are seasonably appropriate. Although Spring/Summer 16 is already on shelves in our favorite haunts, this isn’t a time to be stupid (or really fucking cold). Grab pieces you can wear now, and then transition into spring seamlessly (like the J.Crew cotton sweater Preston is wearing above which will be great with shorts on a crisp Spring evening).

1.5) Layer.

2) Chill out with the “cozy winter” patterns… you’re going to want to burn them in about 3o days. We always think of January as a palette cleanser for the the wardrobe and opt for classics and solids.

We’re going to need someone to pull us out of our monochromatic madness at some point in the near future. We say keep things simple for the New Year by opting for a little navy on navy action. Opt for rich calf leather when it comes to accessories and your look will stay elevated and on-point.

Since we have committed to giving our festive fair isles and plaids a rest for a bit, we’ve decided to keep things monochromatic with winter white. The key piece for this look: a kick-ass cream jean (not bright white). Pair it back to a chunky cream knit and use hits of brown to keep the look strong and masculine. Boom.

The 2016 hustle is on and we’re facing with some of our favorite Haberdashery pieces. Give the holiday sweaters and plaids a rest for a hot second and opt for festive suiting separates. We’ve been feeling the mix of waistcoats, slim blazers, and dark denim. If you can battle the cold sans socks, we say go for it. Happy 2016, guys…let’s do this.
