Apropos of this weekend’s light dusting, we’ve been hearing quite a lot about the influence of the weather on the higher-end lines lately. A few weeks back, Weatherproof backed up its moniker by taking out a policy on Mother Nature and, just this Sunday, the Times followed the trend from Claiborne to Target.

Pushing back the industry speak and the meteorological bet-hedging, what does all this mean for the Kempt man? Not all that much really, as you already know that layering, an alpaca driver’s coat and a scarf are closet must haves. Afterall, as the Times notes only a few gray pages away from its exploration of retail and snow, even Blake Lively is impressed by how Gothamites brave whatever AccuWeather can dish out.
