With NFL football wrapped up, it’s time to turn your attention to more immediate matters—namely, your closet. And whether it’s suffering from a lack of indigo-dyed chore pants from Todd Snyder, throwback Noah parkas and Billy Reid peacoats constructed from Italian cotton canvas. If so, we have some ideas on where to correct these deficiencies below.
Todd Snyder Relaxed Chore Pant in French Blue
Funny how we’re always hearing about chore coats—but what about chore pants? Todd Snyder is at last giving the below-the-belt region the attention it deserves and delivered Japanese cotton pants dyed a deep indigo blue. Naturally, they can be worn with a matching coat for a full-on chore suit.
AE McAteer Handsewn Loafer Natural Veg Tan
Built by a fifth-generation New Yorker working out of an apartment in Queens, these handsewn loafers are made from vegetable-tanned, undyed cow leather that retains its natural hue. In other words, they’re a blank canvas for patina.
Inis Meáin Aran Cable-Knit Linen Sweater
If The Banshees of Inisherin Oscar buzz has you considering a handmade Irish sweater, consider this Aran cable-knit from authentic maker Inis Meáin. Best of all, its 100 percent linen make will keep it serviceable deep into summer.
Noah Outdoor Parka
A spiritual successor to the “60/40” parkas of old, this Noah piece is made from a finer blend of 64 percent cotton and 36 percent nylon but still manages to be water-resistant. Smart design details like a contrast Western yoke and tartan lining set it further apart from the average parka.
Orslow Neutral Geometric Print Fleece Jacket
The opposite of the boring banker fleece is something like this Orslow zip-up marked by a large-scale Southwestern pattern. Made in Japan from a fabric blend that incorporates 60% cotton, its light weight comes coupled to a soft hand.
This Marni zip cardigan’s open weave works as a concession to the warmer weather to come. But for the time being, its heavyweight wool yarns will act as an effective check on winter’s last gasp.
De Bonne Facture Balloon Trousers Heavy Cotton Drill Cream
There’s been a great deal of chatter about balloons in the news lately. But more attention should be paid to these balloon trousers by De Bonne Facture, which are made from heavy drill cotton in a relaxed fit.
Billy Reid Canvas Bond Peacoat
Daniel Craig’s James Bond may have come and gone. But Billy Reid is still making the peacoat Craig famously donned in Skyfall and is offering it this season in a lighter-weight Italian cotton canvas.
Drake’s Gray Boucle Wool Fleece Varsity Vest
It’s easy to become inured to the gray fleece vest. But to create this boucle wool iteration, Drake’s reached back before the rise of the Midtown uniform and found inspiration in vintage collegiate sportswear.
There appears to be a demand for minimalist desert boots, and Swedish sneaker maker CQP is happy to be the supplier. Its Portico model matches a clean suede upper to a sneaker-style crepe sole, and bypasses laces with a hidden elastic band.
Belstaff Tour Suede Overshirt
Being such a rich, tactile material, suede is best left alone when worked into larger pieces. Belstaff got the memo and left this zip-up overshirt supremely clean aside from a helpful set of side-entry pockets and dual flapped pockets at the chest.
Boglioli Zip-Up Bomber Jacket
This lemony linen bomber jacket from Boglioli is more suited to cocktails than cockpits, but therein lies its charm. Match it to a crewneck navy tee and off-white denim and you’re cleared for landing.
Saturdays NYC Clyde Trench Coat Classic Khaki
The trench coat is the ultimate in practical outerwear, but many versions come with epaulets, belts, D-rings, and other accoutrements that suggest a Pink Panther reboot. On the contrary, this Saturdays NYC trench keeps it blessedly clean while repelling the elements with a waterproof cotton/nylon fabric.
Drôle de Monsieur La Veste Velours Monogramme
There’s no subtle way to rock a monogram jacket: once you commit, you’re in. Fittingly, Drôle de Monsieur has dialed the other aspects of its la veste velours monogramme up to 11, selecting a velvet fabric, striped inside collar and yellow trim on the sleeves.
Tory Leather Rolled Leather Dog Leash Havana Brown & Brass
Is there room here to discuss not just menswear, but man’s-best-friend’s wear? We think so and submit this rolled leather and brass dog leash for Fido’s consideration.
