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.
Frye Chase Chelsea Boot
If you’re looking for a boot to pair with a suit this fall, the Chase Chelsea boot should be at the top of your watch list. Made in Italy, this sleek style is made from waxed calf leather that has been hand distressed, giving it a soft, broken-in feel. It features a leather lining and a hand-stained leather outsole. For professional settings, it’s a great alternative to dress shoes, and with its classic styling, you’ll wear it for countless years to come.
The Elder Statesman Tie-Dyed Cashmere Sweater
Some people would think tie-dying an absurdly expensive cashmere sweater is blasphemy. Others would think it is genius. Life is much too short to take things too seriously, so embrace the things that exist outside the status quo. Plus, this piece is ridiculously soft and has an indigo/cream colorway that is easy to incorporate into your wardrobe.
Postalco Double Case
Handmade in Japan, this small wallet is made of a unique material called Farmer’s Felt. It’s an incredibly durable felt made from interlocked kozo (paper mulberry) fibers. With time it will develop a patina like leather and will mold to the contents it carries. Able to hold about 16 credit cards, this wallet features two pockets that fold flat, a cotton fabric lining and a cut brass snap.
Lotuff Duffle Travel Bag
This luxurious duffle is made in New England from tumbled vegetable-tanned leather. It’s designed with the traveler in mind, and has an extended zipper, a detachable shoulder strap and a reinforced leather bottom. The hardware is solid brass, the handles are double-stitched, the attention to detail is impeccable.
