Weekly Theme: Cold Weather Prep

Tis the season of layers and warm accessories. The quintessential layering piece for the colder weather is a scarf. Scarfs need to be soft, and warm, but also breath. The key is good wool, which will provide that heat but also wick away moisture. Everlane, as you may be aware, sometimes does a “choose what you pay” option for their overstock. This wool and acrylic scarf is one of those items right now. Traditional price would sit around $115, however, Everlane’s direct to consumer format allow them to sell it for $55, but since it’s overstock, you can get it for as low as $22.

Available on Everlane.com for $22

Club Monaco Wool Cashmere Topcoat

via clubmonaco.com

We have jumped from PSL's to peppermint mocha's a little fast this year, so because of this, we are giving you the heavier stuff a bit early. Apparently Club Monaco got the same memo, and are having a sale on all of their jackets, including this awesome Wool Cashmere topcoat. The wool cashmere blend gives it a high-quality soft feel that is also durable enough for a sturdy topcoat. Complete with two flap pockets on the outside, lined interior pockets, and a welt breast pocket this jacket is designed like the classics with a more modern fit. While this topcoat is definitely an invest that is well worth it's cost, it won't go out of fashion any time soon (as it hasn't yet since the 1920s). Wear it over your suit, blazer and slacks, jeans and button-down, or a sweatshirt, it goes with it all.

Indochino Merino Wool Flannel Blazer

via indochino.com

via indochino.com

Winter is coming, and quickly. We seemed to have skipped over most Fall throughout the northern state, as daily highs are only reaching the mid 50s, and nightly temps are plunging even in the southern states. This means its time for some warmer sport coats. A great new guy on the scene is this merino wool flannel blazer from Indochino. The fabric is super soft, warm, and has a great roll on the collar. With a tread-count in the Super 100's the wool should stay together and last quite a while, meaning this can be inserted into your weekly wearers. And why wouldn't want to include this, it has a uniqueness your coworkers are likely not to have in their closets, setting you a part. The maroon and blue color combo allows it to go well with khakis, gray slacks, and blue jeans, so feel free to break this out for work and play.

Flint and Tinder Moleskin Shirt Jacket

via Huckberry.com

via Huckberry.com

Instead of beating you over the head with flannel-based shirt options for all of Fall, we decided to mix it up a bit. Introducing the Moleskin Shirt Jacket from Flint and Tinder. This shirt jacket, or what we'll affectionately  call a shacket, is a heavy-duty cotton shirt that protects you from the elements while working out in the yard, going hiking, sitting by the campfire, or venturing into a new part of your city throughout Autumn. This shacket is 100% sourced and made in the good ol' US of A which is always worth a right swipe (get it? flint and TINDER) for us. This garment is really meant to be layered, so the sizes are a little big if you are used to a more slim fit, so take that into account when ordering. For the shorter gents out there, these sleeves will likely require a "cuff and go" type of action as they are a tad long. We suggest layering this over a lightly-colored t-shirt, and either tan chinos, or some reliable denim, and boots of your choice.

Colehaan waterproof Grand OS boots.jpg

There's something about sporting a flannel that puts one in the mood for a hike or a campfire, perhaps even both.

These GrandExplore boots from Cole Haan are super lightweight and waterproof and have the millennial lumberjack aesthetic that we yearn for this time of year. So go on and explore the near by state park, street-side woods, or backyard plot in these bad boys, they can take it.

Uniqlo Checkered Flannel

via Uniqlo.com

The temperatures are lowering, meaning it's time to start adding the warm layers back into the daily rotation. While there are many takes on the fall classic, this cheaper, yet just-as-soft option from Uniqlo is a bit of a steal compared to the price points of many other brands that are just as soft. This specific flannel has a button down collar helping it maintain its shape, which tends to be an issue for the shirts made of a softer cotton material. We suggest you layer this with a plain white T and a pair of jeans, and hey there Delilah you got yourself a classic American outfit good for a trek to the coffee shop or the casual house party.

Brooks Brothers Quilted Jacket

Yes, the hottest days of summer are still to come, but prepping for the cooler night-time strolls through town is still in play. That's where this lightweight quilted Brooks Brothers jacket comes in. It's great for keeping in your car just in case the mercury falls lower than you expected and is the perfect outer layer for your summer camping trip. It has a three outer pocket construction (two hand and one breast), snap front closures, and a double vent in the back that can be snapped closed if the temperature gets too low. The outer layer is nylon, so it is mildly water resistant but not enough to warrant wearing in a downpour, so beware if you wear this as a weather deterrent.  Beyond all of this, the look is classic, and the cut is fairly modern, so you are sure to look damn good in it. You can wear this with almost anything, though we would suggest long pants at least.

A lightweight bomber jacket is the perfect outer garment for early fall and spring, given the color you choose. This bomber from Topman is our pick for the minimalist in all of us. The 100% polyester outer layer, and the 3 pocket design (two exterior and one interior) give this jacket all of the classic design elements of a well constructed bomber. That being said, there isn't anything fancy about this classic top layer, but that means you can layer it with what ever casual shirt you want, which is why we like it so much.
