If you’re in the area of the country that just had one massive winter storm and is now facing another, we feel for you. This time of year is one of the most difficult to dress for—and it’s not much consolation that life for some of us doesn’t require venturing outdoors as much as we once did.
We’re claiming it as a small comfort that a selection of items make weathering winter’s worst a little more bearable. Herein, a luxurious assortment of knitwear, a purpose-ready pair of winter gloves, a great cashmere overcoat and more cold-weather essentials. The best part? All of these items, made by some of menswear’s most vaunted names, are on sale.
Ray-Ban 51mm Hexagonal Flat Lens Sunglasses
Your eyes still need protection in the winter—especially if you live in an area where there’s lots of snow. The sun’s rays love to reflect off the white stuff. Luckily, this angular pair of Ray-Bans will slip seamlessly into your eyewear rotation now and still look fresh when summer rolls along.
Saks Fifth Avenue Collection Reversible Cashmere Beanie
Don’t sleep on a luxury giant’s private label brand. This beanie, from Saks Fifth Avenue’s in-house line, is a reversible design—brown on one side and white on the other. It’ll look as good on a grocery run as it does on the slopes.
Theory Boland Donegal Cashmere Crew Neck Sweater
You’d be forgiven for thinking of a Donegal sweater as a necessarily tough and somewhat scratchy winter knit, but this one from Theory is made from soft cashmere. Its tight pattern of navy blue and white yarns makes it a lot more interesting than your standard solid sweater.
Church’s Prenton Boot
Few bootmakers are as revered as Church’s, an English brand that can trace its roots back to before the Thirty Years’ War. For all that history, its Chelsea boots are undeniably modern, and feature a rubber sole that’ll help keep you going on tough stretches of sidewalk.
Berluti Double-Breasted Cashmere Overcoat
There’s nothing quite like a good overcoat to beat the chill on clear, cold days. This one from Berluti, in an elegant, deep shade of green, looks a little more interesting than your gray and blue variants, but it still retains all the classic hallmarks of great Italian tailoring.
Charvet French-Cuff Dress Shirt
We know, we know—half the fun of being a Charvet guy is going to the brand’s library-like store in Paris, selecting a fabric from its vast archives and having a shirt tailor-made to your specifications. But when’s the next time you’re going to get to do that? Tide yourself over with this excellent French-cuff shirt, which will bring gravitas to your next Zoom meeting.
Guanti Giglio Fiorentino Men’s Lamb Suede/Shearling Gloves
If this pair of shearling-lined gloves won’t keep your hands warm, you might consider staying inside until spring.
