Timeless, investment-worthy pieces that every man should have in his closet
One of the first positive aspects of the basics: you can be well-dressed without looking like someone who’s made a lot of effort
Leather Biker Jacket
Leather is in almost every winter because of its ability to keep us dry, warm and unashamedly masculine. This season’s styles lean towards biker cuts, ideally lined/trimmed with shearling for added insulation.
Don’t rely on hand-me-downs; vintage jackets are cut boxy, rather than in the slim fits that pair with a shirt and trousers as well as jeans and wet-weather boots.
Some men have an aversion to scarves, earmarking them as a less-than manly accessory. That’s not an opinion shared by WWI fighter pilots, who used them to fight frostbite and enemy aircraft.
Men smart enough to appreciate the warm and stylish properties of a piece of wool, cashmere or silk will also know that it can be tied in multiple ways depending on the desired style, and coloured versions can be used to brighten up even the most pared-back of outfits.
Harsh conditions can strike sporadically any time from around September, so a pair of smart, sturdy boots should always be on hand. But it’s when winter really hits that a step up is needed.
While it’s unlikely you’re readying for an expedition, a durable boot with a dense rubber sole or commando sole can make the quest to work a less slippery one.
Leather Tech Gloves
Trends aside, no one wants to shake cracked hands. Put a (warm) middle finger up to the elements and keep your mitts happy with a pair of tech leather gloves.
Black is a touch Gestapo officer; dark brown leather or suede are a more versatile bet. Look for a pair lined with either cashmere, shearling or wool for an added touch of luxury and comfort. To keep connected to your digital life, we recommend a pair of Aiden Touchscreen Gloves from UR Powered.
