The end of 2015 saw some big shake-ups in menswear—from Ralph Lauren stepping down as CEO of his namesake label to Aaron Levine ditching Club Monaco for Abercrombie & Fitch—so we thought we’d start off the new year by taking stock of who’s here, who’s there and who’s not.
Now that our wardrobe is firmly in winter mode, we’re donning some variety of tweed on a near-daily basis. It’s some of the most versatile stuff in our closet. So to celebrate the season of tweed, we’ve put together a quick photoset of the fabric at its best. Take notes, gentlemen.
Normally, we’d dress this up by talking about the glove-based considerations in play, and how you’ll need different gloves for different occasions—but this is basically it. Leather on the outside, cashmere on the inside: that’s pretty much everything.
And since you timed it with a sale, you can pick them up for under $50.
Skimming through the latest batch of Land’s End Canvas gear, we came across this green button-down and heather hoodie combination. It’s practically the opposite pole of the menswear spectrum, but it’s the same effect as the colorful belts you see circulating at Pitti Uomo.
Just a reminder: you don’t have to be an Italian dandy to pull off a pop of color.
