We might be in a martial mood, because suddenly we’re seeing military inspiration everywhere. Or more particularly, in a pair of Orslow chinos that take after the French army’s old M-52 model, a Drake’s fleece that owes a debt to 1980s Royal Army garb and a very Lemaire take on the olive-drab shirt. In terms of civilian style, this week also sees Harris tweed trousers a la Todd Snyder, a shearling duffle by Ralph Lauren and a YMC corduroy trouser made in tribute to a skating legend. Carry on.
PF Flyers All American Hi Suede
The retro sneaker brand founded in 1937 has updated its All American Hi with two new shades of suede. Make the most of its nostalgic appeal by matching to selvedge denim and a boxy white tee or keep it contemporary with drawstring trousers and a quilted liner.
YMC Alva Skate Trouser in Burgundy
We typically associate red-toned corduroy trousers with country gentlemen, but why not urban skateboarders? YMC has taken the road less traveled and named these cotton cords after skateboarding legend Tony Alva and outfitted them with a movement-friendly elasticated waistband and relaxed fit.
Polo Ralph Lauren Shearling Hooded Duffel Coat
Paddington Bear may not tell anyone he’s won the lottery—but there will be signs. For instance, this ultra-luxe take on the fictional bear’s preferred outerwear, made of soft shearling in a ghostly grey hue.
Lemaire Military Shirt
We don’t know which military Lemaire is outfitting, but we want their uniforms. Particularly this subtly faded military shirt completed by two patch pockets with angular button-through flaps.
Orslow M-52 Wide Fit French Army Trousers Sand Beige
Leave it to the French to pioneer military-issue trousers that civilians want to wear. But since you can’t buy from the French Armed Forces directly, Japan’s Orslow has picked up the slack and made this reproduction pair from cotton twill.
Mfpen Curator Organic-Wool Coat
We’re not sure what you’ll be curating in Mfpens’ Curator coat—mid-century Japanese silverware, contemporary Danish poetry, hot takes—but whatever it is, you’ll look simultaneously relaxed and put together. That’s thanks to the organic wool coat’s traditional raglan sleeve construction, generous patch pockets and oversized fit.
Marni x Veja V-10 Scribble-Print Leather Trainers
These “scribble-print” trainers from Marni and Veja are one instance in which you don’t what the sharpie to come out. Contrast their playful anarchy with a pair of crisp chinos and a polo shirt up above.
Flint & Tinder Flannel-lined Waxed Trucker Jacket
We’ve allowed the Brits to own the category of waxed outerwear for far too long. Representing the red-and-white-and-blue is this American-made waxed trucker jacket from Flint & Tinder, which is cut from 7-ounce sailcloth and nods to the open road.
Drake’s Olive Military Fleece Sweatshirt
At some point in the 1980s, the British military had some pretty rad fleece sweatshirts. In lieu of a time machine, Drake’s has created this piece in their likeness, and upgraded the fabric to a poly-blend composed of 61% wool. Report for duty with cords below and a pair of chukka boots.
Todd Snyder Heavyweight Tweed Madison Trouser in Tan Houndstooth
These hefty Todd Snyder trousers are made from real-deal Harris tweed—and most importantly, lined from the waist to the knee so that the rugged but rough fabric won’t feel scratchy against your legs. Finish them off with a chunky turtleneck or a chambray work shirt above.
Bode Highland Lighthouse Sweater
This hand-loomed Bode sweater depicts the Highland Lighthouse in North Truro, Massachusetts, and is based on a sweater that a local resident hand-knit in the 1980s to benefit a local arts center. So, if you missed out on it the first time around, here’s your second chance.
Noah Champion Stripe Beanie
If you’d like to look like the hero (or the villain?) of a ‘90s ski comedy, pull for this striped beanie made in North America for Noah. While its sporty stripes provide visual appeal, polar fleece lining should keep your skull warm.
Sunspel Luxury British Wool Jumper
Yes, putting “luxury” in its name might be a little forward, but Sunspel has the receipts. The British-made sweater is knit with wool sheared from the Bluefaced Leicester sheep, a rare breed thought to have the finest fleece in all of England.
Berg & Berg Ferdinand Button Down Shirt Light Blue/White
There’s a new contender for the title of Perfect Ivy Style OCBD, and this time it hails from Sweden. Berg & Berg’s newly introduced Ferdinand checks all the boxes with a locker loop, box pleat, and most importantly, a soft unlined collar that will hold its own under a crewneck Shetland or buttoned to the top with a knit tie.
Kardo Thomas Jeans
It can take an expert tell two pairs of indigo-dyed blue jeans apart, but Kardo’s Thomas is unmissable. That’s because it’s made in India on handlooms that give the fabric a unique, slubby appearance before it’s naturally dyed.
