Yes, an Arctic front is sweeping through the nation. So, you may want to plan for the next one now with a heavy-duty cashmere overcoat from Tom Ford, a reversible sheepskin leather jacket by way of Aries or even a heat-reactive padded gilet by Acne Studios. But let’s not forget that spring is so close you can see it, with the promises of padded nylon Garbstore jackets, knit cotton Brioni polos and unstructured, lightweight wool blazers from Christian Kimber to come. All of that and more below.
Tom Ford Single-Breasted Cashmere Coat
Despite what its pleasing camel hue suggests, this Tom Ford overcoat is made from 100 percent cashmere. When dealing with a fabric this luxurious, it’s not a bad call to keep the details simple. The single-breasted overcoat has notched lapels, a three-button front, and in what may be its only stylistic flourish, a ticket pocket.
Garbstore Highway Navy Jacket
With its corduroy collar and trims, checked cotton lining and multiple oversized pockets, Garbstore’s Highway jacket encapsulates everything we love about waxed cotton jackets—without the waxed cotton. It’s instead made from a lightly padded nylon that will be appreciated through spring.
Christian Kimber Commute-Proof Architect Blazer
The return to office: if it hasn’t caught up with you yet, it will soon. And when that time comes, you may want to add Christian Kimber’s transit-friendly Architect blazer to your wardrobe, on account of its unstructured make and a specially woven Italian wool fabric that’s nigh impervious to creases.
Brooks Brothers Paddock Diamond Quilted Coat
If you missed out on rocking an equestrian-inspired quilted coat last fall, don’t repeat the mistake come spring. Instead look towards Brooks Brothers’ paddock coat, which has the seasonally relevant bonus of water resistance.
18 East Mallet’s Quilted Parka in Dark Chocolate Handwoven Ripstop
Made in India from handwoven cotton with a water-repellent ripstop lining and recycled polyfil, Eighteen East’s Mallet quilted parka is an uncanny blend of old-world technique and modern performance. Organic cotton fleece inside the collar ups its coziness factor.
Lemaire One Pleat Pants in Squid Ink
Is “squid ink” an ingenious way to describe a previously undiscovered colorway, or is it merely a fancy way to say “black”? No matter how long we stare at these wool Lemaire trousers we can’t be sure, but we do appreciate their smart cut and single pleat.
Aries Reversible Tie-Dye Leather Jacket
Reversing from cream sheepskin leather on one side to tie-dye shearling on the other, this jacket from Aries is the Two-Face of casual outerwear. No matter which side you choose, you’ll be able to warm your hands within a pair of generous front pockets.
The Armoury Ring Jacket Cotton Sport Chinos
Filling the space between tailored trousers and knockabout jeans, The Armoury’s cotton sport chinos are made in Japan from 100 percent cotton and can be washed at home. While able to play rough, a tailored cut with a high rise and tapered leg ensure they still clean up nice with a blazer.
Brioni Long Sleeve Cotton Knit Polo
When it comes to the niche category of transitional knitwear, few pieces excel as much as this long-sleeved cotton knit polo from Brioni. Wear it now over a button-down, and then against the skin once temperatures finally warm.
Fear of God Eternal Suede Jacket
What makes Fear of God’s Eternal suede jacket so… eternal? Perhaps it’s the evergreen appeal of its pared-back design matched to a sumptuous suede fabric.
Drake’s Snuff Suede Hancock Goodyear Welted Chelsea Boot
Named in honor of Thomas Hancock—the inventor of elastics—the Hancock is Drake’s attempt at making the perfect Chelsea boot. We’d say it comes pretty close, considering its Goodyear-welted Dainite sole and a rich suede upper sourced from an esteemed Yorkshire tannery.
Marni V-Neck Mohair Sweater
A heavyweight brushed knit and a striped chalk pattern separate this Marni sweater vest from the poindexter pack. Channel your inner grunge rocker by wearing it over a white tee with baggy denim.
Grenson Men’s Sneaker 68
Part of a new collection from the English shoemaker, Grenson’s 68 sneaker is fully waterproof but borrows its looks from ‘70s tennis sneakers. That remarkable feat is made possible by its nubuck upper, black rubber cupsole and fixed lacing.
Acne Studios Osalo Heat-Reactive Padded Shell Gilet
Due to its heat-reactive shell, this padded gilet from Acne Studios will turn from purple to… a lighter shade of purple when exposed to warmth. The main takeaway being that we hope you like purple.
Walker Slater MacClean Shirt
Walker Slater’s MacClean shirt, made from substantial cotton corduroy with flapped chest pockets and elbow patches, is an overshirt with a British accent. Double down on its qualities by layering it over a Shetland sweater or under a tweed jacket.
