Keep reading for your winter essentials check list, to put your most handsome foot forward this winter.
Hats & Beanies:
If you’ve been waiting for an excuse to embrace your inner Don Draper, now’s your chance. Reminiscent of the ’50s – a time when men wore hats en masse – fedoras are back this season, in a variety of fur felts and soft wools. But if broad brims aren’t you’re thing, you can rest assured knowing that the beanie remains a street style staple.
Boots are back on trend, in fact, we’re not sure they’ve ever been completely out of style. Point is, if you don’t own a pair, now’s the time to invest. From the slim lined to the military-inspired, find you perfect shape for night and day, and for work and play.
Every self-respecting man needs a bag that complements his style, and winter always offers a fine selection. This season, expect to see soft leather totes, traditional cross-body satchels, and a host of practical backpacks – the perfect casual add-on for the weekend. Because who really wants to wear out their pockets carrying around a mobile, keys and wallet?
