In terms of shoulder seasons, mid-March is about as in-between as things get. Meaning, it’s a great time to reach for a brushed cotton sweater vest by Our Legacy, lightweight wool trousers from Luca Faloni and a convertible parka made by Todd Snyder. Looking ahead, the weather will soon be ideal for a pair of madras slippers produced by J. Press and Stubbs & Wootton, or even some tastefully tailored shorts from Private White V.C. As we were saying…
Saturdays NYC Mott Quarter Zip
Saturdays has liberated the quarter zip from bland middle-management territory by virtue of a heavyweight cotton terry cloth, a convertible mid-height collar and vintage athletic details including ribbed cuffs and hem. The result? Something that the best-dressed gym teacher in America might have in their closet.
Drake’s Rocky Mountain Featherbed Nylon Leather Mountain Parka
This made-in-Japan recreation of a sporty ‘70s icon is cut from water-resistant nylon and features a Western-style leather yoke. Its concealed drawstring hood should keep March squalls (and April showers) in check, and a pair of side-entry handwarmer pockets will help you wean off gloves.
Luca Faloni Wool Pleated Trousers
Flannel trouser weather is coming to an end, but Luca Faloni is adding extra innings via this pleated pair tailored from a lightweight Vitale Barberis Canonico wool. Wear it with an open-neck dress shirt and white sneakers to achieve polished-but-laidback cool, or pair it to a fresco blazer for a more summery business casual look.
Jil Sander Rise Vulcanized Leather Low Top Sneakers
These bottom-heavy low tops from Jil Sander team a classic calfskin leather upper with pavement-pounding vulcanized rubber soles. A pair of olive drab carpenter pants, a white tee and a light-washed denim jacket feel like the natural accoutrements.
Our Legacy V-Neck Brushed-Cotton Sweater Vest
These weeks when winter begins giving way to spring are prime time to break out the sweater vests. But as that time is short, you don’t want to waste it on something boring. Fortunately, this brushed-cotton number from Our Legacy is anything but.
Billy Reid Savoy Work Shirt
Supple goat suede, spade-shaped pockets and antique brass hardware betray the fact that this Billy Reid work shirt isn’t really for working—but we’ll give it a pass. After all, we all need a high-low layering piece to reach for when a first date or weeknight dinner with friends calls.
J. Press x Stubbs & Wootton Madras Loafer
To mark the imminent arrival of madras season, J. Press has tapped Stubbs & Wotton to turn the multicolor cloth into a smart Venetian loafer. They’re available now for pre-order, with an expected ship-by-date of May 15th—just in time for outdoor G&T season.
Engineered Garments Bowling Shirt
Is a bowling shirt still a bowling shirt if it has long sleeves, adjustable back buttons at the hem and a total of four front chest pockets? Of course: it’s just a bowling shirt as designed by Engineered Garments.
Loro Piana Wind Baseball Cap with Logo
We’re far enough removed from the Succession season finale to argue that picking up a Loro Piana baseball cap has nothing to do with the Roy family’s sense of dress. Rather, it’s thanks to the Italian cap’s wind-and-water-resistant Storm System fabric.
Buck Mason Japanese Cotton Sateen Field Shirt
Most military-style field shirts stick to the predictable olive drab, but Buck Mason has leaned theirs a bit of downtown appeal thanks to a black cotton sateen fabric. Over a navy crewneck shirt and dark denim, it’ll easily elevate your go-to basics.
Craig Green Quilted Shell Jacket
March’s windy bluster and in-between-weather are tailor-made for shell jackets, and we’re stuck on this quilted model from Craig Green. Its boxy fit makes it layering friendly, and a generous spread collar adds a surprisingly dressy touch.
Todd Snyder Italian 3-1 Parka Shell
This military-inspired parka from Todd Snyder has a choose-your-own-adventure touch. It can be worn on its own as a shell or combined with a sold-separately nylon liner (which can itself be worn individually) as a more heavy-duty piece of outerwear.
Ghurka Overlander No. 3
With the equilibrium between work-from-home and office life still in limbo, Ghurka has introduced a hybrid bag for these hybrid times. Its new Overlander No. 3 combines the shape of a tote with fine briefcase details including dual top handles, internal dividers and an exterior patch flap pocket secured by a brass tab closure.
Turnbull & Asser Linen Safari Byron Jacket
We imagine that, were he living today, Lord Byron would go much a-roving in this Turnbull & Asser safari jacket named in his honor. Tailored from a hefty linen, it’s replete with military details including pleated patch-flap pockets and back side adjusters—a fitting tribute to the poet-turned-solider.
Private White V.C. The Maker’s Short
Here’s your seasonal reminder that baggy cargo shorts remain verboten. In their stead, consider this workwear-inspired pair from Private White V.C. with oversized patch pockets that serve the same functional purpose without the fratty connotations.
