When summer turns to autumn and when winter weather is in full force, it’s time to layer up. Layering–with knits, vests, scarves or undershirts–is not only a practical way to keep warm; it also gives you the opportunity to experiment creatively with different looks, adding complexity to your tailored style. In this article, we’ll provide tips on layering when wearing a suit or sport coat.
As this article is first being published, we’re just a few short days away from the official arrival of fall here in the northern hemisphere. Thus, we’ve put together a guide on how best to get your wardrobe ready for the change in seasons, as well as a list of more great buys for fall (and winter).
Basically, you just put on your overcoat, and you go, right?
Not quite! An overcoat is an integral part of a classic gentleman’s wardrobe, but it requires a little bit of thought about your outfit and the event you’re going to go to, as well as the temperature outside, to come up with an outfit that’s both functional and stylish.
Winter is one of the best times of the year for clothes, not just because it’s black-tie season, but also because you can layer.
That means sweaters, boots, vests, overcoats, topcoats, gloves, scarves, all those things come out of the closet and you can add them up, and because it’s cold, you can have a lot more in your outfit than during summer or spring.
