The new year’s first month is finishing strong with a made-to-order wool crepe rugby from F.E. Castleberry, waffle-knit cashmere beanies by Anglo-Italian and Officine Creative’s brown suede rejoinder to the white leather sneaker trend. Other fronts see belted corduroy jackets by Ralph, Sherpa-lined overshirts via Todd Snyder and P. Johnson’s interpretation of tennis wear. It’s all waiting for you below.
Anglo-Italian Cashmere Beanie
It’s hard to rock a red beanie without accidentally referencing The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, but Anglo-Italian has found a clever workaround. It’s waffle-knit cashmere cap comes in a rich burgundy mélange that places enough distance between the wearer and Jacques Cousteau.
A.P.C. Surchemise Basile Shirt
We’re used to seeing overshirts in deep navy, steely gray or earthy green, but A.P.C. thought: Why not mauve? As a matter of fact, we think the soft pastel is a natural match to the heavyweight wool felt used to make the piece.
Burberry V-Neck Cotton-Gabardine Trench Coat
We aren’t so sure if this cotton-gabardine trench’s deep V-neckline will be of aid in a downpour, but it will help you look cool in most any weather condition. And if you really are concerned, there are always umbrellas.
Eleventy Varsity V-Neck Sweater
Eleventy’s take on the V-neck varsity sweater eschews preppy excess in favor of a clean, modern design framed by white trim detail. Its 100 percent cotton composition and a comfortable, relaxed fit should keep it in play.
F.E. Castleberry Striped Wool Crepe Rugby
The words “rugby shirt” and “luxury” aren’t often coupled together, but most rugby shirts aren’t knit from 100 percent wool crepe, hand-loomed for each order in Maine. A contrasting collar and mother of pearl buttons round out this singular piece.
Honor the Gift Dice Cotton & Acrylic Knit Cardigan
Honor the Gift has transformed the cabana shirt into a knit cardigan with the help of a cotton-acrylic fabric. Pair it to crisp chinos and canvas sneakers for a (comparatively) edgy take on the Mister Rogers look.
J.W. Anderson Rugby Printed Cotton Polo Shirt
Not to be confused with a rugby shirt, this is a J.W. Anderson polo shirt with a large-scale print that depicts colliding rugby players. Wear with tennis shorts to cover all the preppy sport bases.
Lemaire Folded Mules in Black
If you thought there wasn’t room in the footwear market for another artfully minimalist mule, you thought wrong. Lemaire’s latest is made from a single piece of vegetable-tanned leather and features a foldable heel that allows it to go from mule to loafer at any time.
Neil Barrett x Penfield Padded Nylon Bomber Jacket
British designer and Prada alumnus Neil Barrett has loaned his sleek stylings to Penfield, producing an outerwear capsule collection that includes this nylon puffer/bomber hybrid. Great for standing outside of a bodega in nearly any temperature.
Officine Creative Race Lux 002 Suede Sneakers
If the era of the white leather sneaker is truly over, then the age of the brown suede sneaker has just begun. Get a leg up on the trend with this Italian-made pair from Officine Creative.
P. Johnson Tennis Quarter Zip
P. Johnson proves that there’s still a place for tennis whites, or at least this matte quarter zip from their newly launched tennis collection. Details like water and wind-resistant fabric and an internal pocket make it practical while still adhering to club dress codes.
Polo Ralph Lauren Corduroy Belted Jacket
Corduroy is typically typecast as country clothing or professorial wear, but this belted jacket from Polo Ralph Lauren is neither. Instead, it features a safari jacket-style silhouette, complete with a throat latch, sets of cargo and patch flap pockets and an inverted back pleat.
Ron Dorff Cotton Cashmere Sweatshirt
Low as the temperatures may be in much of the country, let’s not forget that peak cotton-cashmere season—aka, early spring—is just around the corner. And when it arrives, you’ll want to have this tastefully striped sweatshirt from Ron Dorff to toss over an OCBD and khakis.
Todd Snyder Japanese Sherpa Lined Flannel Basecamp Shirt
As the name implies, Snyder’s latest shacket is inspired by vintage mountaineering wear. If more evidence is needed, just look to its Sherpa fleece lining, side-entry hand pockets and a pair of flap patch pockets at the chest that can surely hold a Clif Bar or two.
Tombolo ‘Black Diamond’ Cabana
A highlight from the gleefully maximalist label’s Après Ski collection, this terrycloth cabana shirt is digitally printed with a diamond pattern featuring Alpine peaks. Skiers sticking to domestic slopes may pull for an alternate version of the style that puts the Rockies front and center.
