Show the world that your fashion sense never hibernates. Dazzle coworkers and friends by removing your down-filled parka to reveal clothes that look cool and still pack heat. How do you achieve this feat? Skim the items below and pull the trigger.
More and more you see guys have cottoned on to the flannel craze. Why? Comfort for one. Cozy as pair of pyjamas, you can deploy J. Lindeberg’s Chaze Flannel Twill Pants ($175) with a blazer and a patterned dress shirt and ease into your cubicle with confidence and style.
Reach for the Ribbed Lightweight Henley ($125) if you need a great all-season shirt that can stand alone or moonlight under multiple layers. Rock the raglan sleeves and a polyester and cotton blend that features a little stretch. Mottled dye adds splotches of white to the grey, a simple detail worthy of distinction.
Live somewhere in Canada where cold is still above zero? Banish the bulk and push your arms through the Lawler Quilted Polyfill Jacket ($295). Slim and lightweight, it features a mandarin collar and a silhouette that flatters more than your standard parka. In addition, the coat has a diamond quilt pattern and is filled and lined.
Cue the classic cut: the Noel Neps Yarn ($159)is a crewneck sweater in a navy blue hue (or grey) that will age like George Clooney, i.e. it only gets better. No fancy styling needed here. What you get is a workhorse. The sweater is ribbed at the neck, sleeves and hem and hews close to your figure. Wear it with jeans or chinos.
Seemingly a cousin of the Lawyer Quilted Polyfill Jacket, the Eloy Tech Polyfill Vest ($225) features a diamond-stitch pattern and ribbed shawl collar. Lock in the heat with a button front and tuck your hands into the slanted zip pockets. And underneath? Well, a Ribbed Lightweight Henley might work.
