OUTFIT: Men’s Flannel Shirts
Falling For Flannel
When the temps get as low as they’ve been the past few weeks, I basically start to live in flannel shirts. They’re warm and soft and basically remind me of my favorite pj’s so what’s not to love right? You can wear them with jeans, layer them with a henley, or even dress them up with a tie and blazer. You pretty much can’t go wrong with flannel which is also a reason it makes a great gift for anyone this Christmas. Check out my feature on the American Eagle blog where I talk a little bit more about my love for flannel in their holiday gift guide series HERE.
OUTFIT: Men’s Denim & Leather
The Leather’s In The Details
There’s a lot going on in this outfit and I’m kind of obsessed with all of it so let’s discuss one by one, k? I love love love this new baseball jacket I picked up. First of all I love the color because I’ve been obsessed with gray lately and I love the how the baseball jacket was done in wool so it has a more sophisticated feel to it. The shirt is another really unique piece. The railroad stripe gives it that authentic workwear vibe and I love the outside pockets at the waist. I’d easily wear this as a “shacket” when the temps are more appropriate, so it’s really a great layering piece. Now lets talk about these pants. I’m pretty simple when it comes to pants but if I am gonna experiment I feel comfortable doing it in black. The oversized front pockets and the leather patches on the back of the leg are just the most perfect details. They have a really edgy streetwear feel to them that I’m really digging so hopefully I’ll get a lot more wear out of these jeans in the coming months.
OUTFIT: Men’s Wool Topcoat
On The Go
The holidays are always such a busy time of the year. The past few weeks and up until the new year I feel like I’m constantly running around. Between work and seeing family and friends things can get pretty overwhelming so I like to keep things as casual as possible when it comes to getting dressed. I recently picked up a great navy topcoat and I can’t get over how versatile it is. It fits over any outfit no matter how layered up I am and can be worn dressed up over a suit or dressed down with sneaks and jeans like I’m doing here. I’m also really loving this new military-inspired sweater I got from the US Army licensed brand Authentic Apparel Group. It’s a great layering piece to just throw on when you’re in a hurry. You should efinitely check out the rest of their collection online.

OUTFIT: Men’s Moto Jacket
I’ve been looking for the perfect leather biker jacket for a while now and I’m really loving the one I finally settled on. Even before I picked this one up, I already imagined what I’d wear it with. I pictured black skinnies, Converses, black sweaters, basically a lot of black. But then last weekend as I was heading out to brunch I just kinda threw it on over my “preppy-ish” outfit because I needed an extra layer for the cold and surprisingly I really liked the look. Like the contrast of the preppy tie and button down with the “edginess” of a moto jacket - kinda like Jenny Humphrey in Gossip Girl when she turns all badass in her school uniform. Anyway, I think it kinda strikes the perfect balance in the outfit and can’t wait to wear this jacket lots more.
Tokyo Laundry Men’s A/W13 Collection
Layered In Style
Ever since I discovered UK based men’s & women’s clothing brand, Tokyo Laundry, I’ve been a fan of their stylish yet affordable clothing. This season’s Autumn/Winter collection is no exception. With plenty to offer, the new line features everything from classic to casual outerwear and a range of sweaters and knits to suit any taste. My personal favorites from the collection are their variety of patterned button downs and sweaters. I love a good print and luckily many of their designs incorporate bold graphics and patterns in a trendy and stylish way whether it’s a printed pocket detail on a shirt or an all-over pattern on a cardigan.
Here’s an outfit I chose from their current line. I paired some slim chinos with a navy button down shirt featuring a really unique striped pattern on the upper chest and back. I really love how the added detail on the shirt really makes it stand out as a statement piece. I also added a chunky button up cardigan with a Nordic inspired print for an extra layer of warmth. The fit of the sweater was perfect - not too tight but not too baggy so it still fit nicely under my burgundy pea coat without adding extra bulk. Speaking of the jacket, I really love the double-breasted design with the shawl collar. It really adds a sophisticated touch to the outfit - not to mention it’s super warm and comfortable.
If you like the items you see here, there’s a whole lot more to see on their site so you should definitely check out the rest of the collection. You may even find some holiday gifts for yourself of even your friends.
