Leather Jackets: Splurge Vs. Steal

When Fall rolls around, I instantly start to pull out the leather (and faux leather) jackets in my closet. A proper fitting leather jacket will prove to be one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe from these early Fall days, until the beginning of Spring. A great leather jacket used to a lot of saving or whipping out the credit card, but with the countless fast fashion brands stepping up the trend game, a killer leather jacket (not real leather obviously) can be yours for under $100. I’ve rounded up some of the best ones for under $100 (The one I am wearing above is this one from Forever21Men) as well as some splurge worthy jackets if you’re looking for real leather or to make an investment. The rest of this outfit is below, btw! x – Preston

Christmas Shopping in Brooklyn: American Field x...

img_1726

After a wonderful kick-off dinner in Manhattan last week, the guys from American Field market (think the coolest & freshest menswear designers all in one room showing off their merch) invited me to swing by the Brooklyn market this past weekend. The set-up was killer. Brands ranging from Boll & Buck to Sailormade assembled in one room to meet with browsers, brands, bloggers & editors. Take a peek at some of the pics we snapped at the expo, as well as the look I threw on to venture off to Brooklyn, after the jump…(I linked to the pieces I’m wearing in the pics below…minus a few things that are no longer available in which case, I have subs for you guys!) x- Preston

Leather Weather Has Arrived

Leather Weather has arrived and it doesn’t mean you have to spend a million bucks to get the perfect moto look. Every year the vegan leather (or engineered leather) options get better and better while staying easy on the wallet. We tend to keep our money right where we can see it, in our shoe closet. For this look, Preston opted to spend on the Saint Laurent Heidi boot and pair it back to a faux leather jacket and great neutral sweatshirt. (We wont lie though, we have a few quality leather jackets in the closet but they don’t all have to come with a high price tag).

If there is one piece you need to take your wardrobe staples into Winter, it is a sick camel top coat. We’re not talking about the boxy, shoulder-padded version your dad rocked when you were growing up. The new camel coat is slim, tapered, and will keep you pretty damn warm when worn over your favorite wool cable sweaters and paired back to a rigid jean.

A good crisp, Fall Sunday in New York City is what Manhattanites dream of while sweating out the last humid weeks of August. This past weekend, we had one of those dreamed about days. We took to the streets of Williamsburg to check out the food, the shopping, and the people watching.Our go to for the early days of chilly weather is always a Belstaff roadmaster jacket. This waxed cotton wonder keeps the chill out while being thin enough to layer over this David Beckham for H&M striped sweater. South of the waist we kept things simple with our favorite pair of banged up jeans and a jodhpur boot by Saint Laurent. (Checkout a few pics from the day in Bk below)

We’ll admit it…we have way too many leather (and faux) leather jackets. Our favorite right now? A brown leather jacket. This Fall must have is Autumnal perfection paired with shades of grey and tan, paired back to your favorite pair of mid to dark wash jeans. We also love a hint of western mixed into the look by adding a sick turqoise inlay belt into the mix.
