Staff Picks: What Our Style Team Likes Right Now
Every single day, our style team filters through millions upon millions of style articles, clothing pieces, collection launches, brand parties, blogger fads, runway shows, fashion shoots, lookbooks and many, many more stimuli to stay on top of what’s hot in men’s fashion. In spite of all that noise, we’ll keep things simple here: just four things we’re into right now, updated each week.
Panerai PAM00674 Luminor Due 3 Days Automatic Acciaio
Though Panerai’s vintage-inspired dial designs have always spoken to a classy, dress watch look, its thick, rugged cases have generally been too robust for formal wear. That’s why Panerai debuted a thinner, more elegant case shape in the Luminor Due, dropping the watch’s overall thickness to a scant 10.7mm — perfect for slipping under a shirt cuff. This particular reference, the PAM00674, features a super-thin (at less than 4mm thick) movement featuring an offset micro-rotor, so it doesn’t sacrifice automatic winding in its quest for thinness.
MR P. Shearling-Trimmed Leather Aviator Jacket
This jacket is definitely a big-ticket item, but it is a garment you’ll own for the rest of your life. “The leather is so buttery and will only get better with age,” Mr Porter’s Style Director Olie Arnold tells us. “It’s a classic style, but one that I feel we have made feel and look very contemporary.”
Levi’s Authorized Vintage Collection
After acquiring a huge quantity of archive-quality denim, Levi’s is now selling top-tier vintages pieces at Levi’s Tailor Shops around the world, as well as in the SoHo, Meatpacking, Williamsburg, Market Street and Malibu stores. For vintage denim lovers, this is a chance to score some some great American-made pieces from the most legendary brand in jeans.
Todd Snyder + Champion Polartec Sherpa Hoodie
Taking notes from classic mountaineering jackets, this sweatshirt is crafted from chunky Polartec sherpa. It’s incredibly lightweight and quick-drying, making it an ideal layering piece. Made in Canada, it features a center half-zip closure, a kangaroo pocket and side-zippers at the seams.
