WINTER OF MUCH CONTENT
Full swing blowy as anything proper nasty winter weather, just tipping it down for the crack kind of conditions. Very very not cool from the climate. I've still got me suedes on man!
The obvious solution: big coats. Padded puffers you can throw on without a care. The equivalent of bringing the duvet to the settee but more socially accepted. Selections from Deus Ex Machina, Stan Ray and Carhartt have you covered, particularly the Carhartt WIP Munro Jacket - constructed from a water-repellent nylon poplin and filled with an ethical polyester down.
Options a plenty in your chunky to fine selection of knits. Our most recent debutant Country Of Origin specialise in the finest lambswool seamless crewnecks, easy breezy. Obey offer a more ostentatious selection of acrylics and cottons wovens, statement pieces. Where it's really at, the Edwin pieces of the season come in with a classic conundrum: Turtleneck or Cardigan? There can only be one! It's either the premium Edwin Roni High Collar Sweater in Uniform Green in a mix of wool and alpaca, or the premium Edwin Hiji Cardigan in Kid Mohair Violet in a wool blend.
Layers are the tried and true winter way, and its not hard to look oh so good doing it. Vetra are our go to satorial servants for a fitted chore, and Manchester based Uskees rip a number of canvas classic on boxy blocks, but the brand offers the easiest colours and cuts for layering is the understated favourite Le Laboureur. The brand new Le Laboureur Cotton Work Jacket in Meadow Green places a vibrant green colouring to the oversized style with contrast buttons to boot!
Denim comes as strong as ever from Edwin, Carhartt and Nudie amongst others, but for true warmth the money is on Stan Ray's Fat Pant in Battle Grey Cord. Classic fatigue pant with a relaxed fit, now in heavyweight cord!
Functional but formal, dress down, dress up very no-nonsense no frills shoes. Kleman have decked their Padror and Frodan offerings in a series of hard wearing suedes, veggie tanned grained leathers and the classic matte leather finishes. Tyrolean shoes are the past, present and the future!
