Forget sweater weather—we’re itching to get back into proper outerwear. To that end, this week spotlights a softly constructed balmacaan by PML, a supersized leopard print coat courtesy of Celine and a contemporary update to the English shooting jacket from Berg & Berg. But, as we’re not quite hitting those temperatures yet, you may want to ease back into layering with an English flannel shacket from Articles of Style or a brushed Shetland knit by Trunk. You know the drill.
Brooks Brothers Wide Wale Corduroy Harrington Jacket
Thanks to the efforts of Steve McQueen, the Harrington jacket is considered an icon of mid-century Ivy style. This iteration from Brooks Brothers doubles down on its campus appeal with wide-wale corduroy fabric.
Trunk Berwick Shetland Crew Sweater
You best believe it’s Shetland season, and Trunk is delivering the goods with the return of its brushed crewneck. The Scottish-knit sweater is available in four colors, but we’re particularly fond of its autumnal gold expression.
Aspesi Murakami Shetland Wool Winter Jacket
Aspesi has taken all the hallmarks of your grandfather’s favorite tweed jacket—yarn-dyed Shetland wool, patch pockets and a center vent—and infused them in into this easy-wearing, deconstructed jacket with a more contemporary fit. Wear it over an OCBD and a repp tie or treat it like outerwear above a merino turtleneck.
PS Paul Smith Duffel Coat
We have no special insight into the production of Paddington 3. We can, however, point you in the direction of this Paul Smith duffel coat that hits all the right notes with a traditional toggle closure and a heavyweight wool-cotton blend fabric.
Nanamica Flannel Easy Cargo Pants
For a while, society believed that the cargo pant could be rehabilitated by a slim fit. But we like Nanamica’s approach: Its pant is made from a lightweight cotton moleskin and enjoys a wide-but-tapering fit.
RRL Limited-Edition Patchwork Overshirt
No longer the exclusive preserve of his preppy Polo line, Ralph Lauren’s penchant for patchwork has bled into RRL in the form of this lightweight overshirt. Quilted lining and generous patch pockets burnish its outerwear bonafides.
John Lobb Perth Nubuck and Leather Boots
There’s no better way to inaugurate boot season than with a proper pair from the grand old man of English shoemaking, John Lobb. In this context, “proper pair” may refer to its Perth boot, which marries a nubuck and leather upper to a commanding height and a sneakily concealed side zipper for easy entry.
Man On The Boon Suede Padded Down Vest
If you associate padded down vests with leaf blower-operating dads, allow Man on the Boon to change your perceptions. The pithily named Korean label makes its iteration from supple goat suede and finishes it with tailored details including a welted breast pocket and functional throat latch.
Celine Homme Alpaca, Wool and Silk-Blend Faux Fur Coat
There’s an angel on our shoulder telling us you should invest in a versatile, dark-colored coat that can be worn to any occasion. But at the moment we’re being swayed by the devil, who thinks you’d make an impression in this alpaca, wool and silk-blend coat from Celine in a gloriously oversized leopard-print pattern.
Saturdays NYC Jefferson Brushed Cotton Jacket
Ideal for your next leaf-peeping campaign, this brushed cotton jacket from Saturdays features an abstract camouflage pattern that’s more Warhol than war-zone. Its full lining, light padding and side entry pockets will be appreciated on “I didn’t think it was going to get that cold” days.
Bethany Williams Vegan Leather Jacket
It may be made from cactus leather, but there’s nothing prickly about this leather jacket from Bethany Williams. However, be advised that its wide lapels, generous fit and burgundy hue may get you mistaken for the lead of a gritty ‘70s cop show.
PML Balmacaan Overcoat
PML has applied its easygoing ethos to outerwear in the form of this balmacaan. Made from an un-dyed herringbone wool from Marling & Evans, it nails that English countryside look but delivers it in a package that’s unlined, unconstructed and all-around Neapolitan.
Baudoin & Lange Hicks Chelsea Boot
While best known for its unlined loafers, Baudoin & Lange offers heavier duty—yet softly shaped—footwear for the cooler months, too. One example is its Hicks Chelsea boot, which features a gently curving, hand-shaped instep for greater ease of wear.
Berg & Berg Nils Raglan Jacket
Berg & Berg has brought the English hunting jacket out of the country and into the city with its Nils jacket. The piece matches landed gentry-approved features like raglan sleeves, quilted lining and generous bellows pockets to a luxurious Italian wool that’s more appropriate for going out to dinner than shooting for it.
Articles of Style Autumn Glen-Plaid Shacket
Made-to-order in America, this Articles of Style shirt-jacket is cut from a lightweight English flannel marked by a subtle, earth-toned glen-plaid. Split the difference between its heritage fabric and casual styling with a button-down shirt and a knit tie.
