J.Crew Ludlow Glen Plaid Topcoat Review

via EastDane.com

via EastDane.com

Weekly Theme: Winter is Coming

If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll notice that big plaid coats are very in this cold season, and likely will be for the next 2-4 years. The trend is just popping which means hopping in now is a smart choice if you want to be ahead of the curve when it comes to your friendly circles. This coat is 80% wool meaning it will keep you warm and will have a great feel and drape. The only down side is that it only comes in a regular sleeve length so if you are long or short it will take a little tailoring. Right now you can get it on sale in a 36R and 38R at Nordstrom, and at regular price in 38R, 40R, and 44R at East Dane. Unfortunately, J.Crew themselves are sold out.

Club Monaco Sutton Dress Pant Review

Weekly Theme: Work Holiday Party

On to the pants! Because your jacket is meant to be a different color than your pants, you could go with a few different colors like gray or a deep olive, but since the lapels are black, black is the most pragmatic choice. Keeping the maroon jacket as the primary color flex keeps the outfit as a whole sophisticated and minimal. These pants from Club Monaco are a wool blend so they will lay nicer than any normal chino and are lined to be comfy to wear. Pick up a pair to wear to your holiday party, and keep them to add to your weekly workwear wardrobe.
