This Wings + Horns jacket should fill the same spot in your wardrobe as a tweed blazer, but it swaps out the plaid threading for one of the more current fabric patterns out there. And it doesn’t hurt that a spotty mélange of gray and white should match the view from your window on most winter mornings.
Of course, you’ll lose a bit of the professor-on-leave vibe that comes with the tweed…but it’s a small price to pay.
A chunky wool sweater is going to be invaluable over the next few months, and this one has just about everything we want. That includes a v-neck just high enough to keep your collar contained and, most importantly, a black and white speckle that complements the rough wool just about perfectly. It’s the kind of piece that makes you glad it’s fall…which can be quite a feat once November rolls around.
