You know the old saying about March: in like a lion, out like a lamb.
Which got us thinking, while we’re still on the lion end of March, we sure could use some help from that lamb... in the form of shearling. (Just go with it.)
We’re officially into the “odd uneven time” of seasonal transition—when a cloudy morning could just as easily mean rain or a balmy afternoon.
Our suggestion: look to the perennially underrated henley.
It splits the difference between a tee shirt and a rugby, which is ideal in casual layering situations, but it can hold its own when the temps unexpectedly rise and your collar needs loosening. (A nautical stripe helps with the latter.) Some might even be adventurous enough to slip it under a blazer (what helps here: being Ewan McGregor).
Our comrades-in-style over at UrbanDaddy tipped us off to today’s launch of Jardine, the brand-new menswear label helmed by Nathan Bogle—he cofounded a little brand you may have heard of, by the name of Rag & Bone (yes, the CFDA-lauded label started with a couple of guys endeavoring to make a great pair of jeans). Jardine Spring 2013 will be Bogle’s first collection since leaving the label, and luckily, we got to catch up with him to hear the story, get the lowdown on his new line and let him sound off on the post-metrosexual state of menswear.
Every year around this time, the pantheon of fine menswear purveyors sets up shop in a warehouse deep in the hinterlands of Manhattan. And every year around this time, we trek downtown to check it out. Since most brands show clothes that won’t be available for about six months—and because the show is enormous—we decided the best thing to do was break it down, using our patented scientific formula.
All signs are pointing to an unseasonably mild winter this year—there hasn’t been much snow on the ground anywhere to speak of.
Which means, when some fresh powder finally does make landfall, you’re going to have to make the best of it. Especially when it comes to building a snowman. And in our grand new tradition of winning the holidays, we’re going to ensure the Frosty in your yard is cooler than cool (see what we did there?). We’re talking about throwing caution to the wind and building the most luxurious, stately, money-is-no-object snowman that your holidays deserve.
