Silky Smooth Spring Layering


An awesome wardrobe begins with nice outerwear, and so far as males of favor are involved, outerwear is not only for the winter.

A “duster”, for instance, is a light-weight, unlined outer shell that was pioneered by cowboys and desert runners to maintain the mud out of their mouths and solar off their backs. Menswear in spite of everything, begins with old-world perform and, over time, evolves into fashionable fashion that harkens again to the times of the gentleman. 

A Spring/Summer time layering coat is nothing new. I’ve been sporting them for years – it’s the best approach to layer within the hotter months, it affords you loads of pocket room on your every day carry (with out stuffed pockets), and it all the time appears to be like extra suave than a easy polo & chinos – particularly when night time falls. 

Final season our tackle the “luxurious duster” was the Silk Tweed Mac and this season our model is the Summer time Tweed Herringbone Topcoat.

Right here Wes takes it for a take a look at drive round SoHo, to present you an thought of the layering potential all through the hotter (and cooler) months.

“This outfit is a private because it will get for me, I’m simply straight up snug.

For many who reside in NYC, you realize the “Spring” climate may be considerably bi-polar and unpredictable. With the ability to throw on a chunk like this offers virtually any informal outfit the additional degree it is advisable to really feel assured and comfy with out wanting too misplaced.

Reality be instructed, Dan wished to make use of this material for a sportcoat, however I talked him into an overcoat as an alternative. In contrast to lots of people in #menswear, I don’t usually put on sportcoats and can all the time attempt to discover one thing that’s barely totally different as a result of, let’s be trustworthy, I’m from NYC and I love to stunt (subtly).”
