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.
Alex Crane Point Jacket
Brooklyn-based Alex Crane’s all-purpose Point Jacket is made of waxed cotton and is cut in a shape that anyone can wear. It features a poplin lining, four patch pockets and a zip-closure. It’s (relatively) affordably priced at $195, made in America and will last for years.
Kapital Compressed Wool Scarf
This distinctive scarf is made in Japan from felted wool and features a range of classic bandana patterns patched together. Though it’s an amalgamation of patterns, it’s easy to wear and can be paired with both casual and professional outfits. It’s perfect for the cooler weather and it’s unique — who says you need to wear a traditional solid-colored knit scarf?
Killspencer Duffle in Korean War Era Waxed Canvas
Killspencer’s latest bag is made in the US from a durable-yet-soft 18oz twill waxed cotton and dark bull hide leather accents that pop against the bag’s olive green shell. At 21 inches in length, it’s compact but big enough to accommodate a weekend getaway’s worth of clothing.
Shockoe Atelier Cottrell Field Shirt
Shockoe Atelier’s field shirts are the perfect layer jacket for mild weather, and function as a sturdy mid-layer when the temperatures drop. Previously offered in black denim, the shirt is now available in Cottrell fabric. It’s a dark forest green and has a tan weft, so as it ages and fades with washing, the color will get cloudier. This is a unique fabric, in a great overshirt silhouette, and would be at home in any guy’s closet.
