A great wardrobe starts with great outerwear, and as far as men of style are concerned, outerwear is not just for the winter.
A “duster”, for example, is a lightweight, unlined outer shell that was pioneered by cowboys and desert runners to keep the dust out of their mouths and sun off their backs. Menswear after all, starts with old-world function and, over time, evolves into modern style that harkens back to the days of the gentleman.
A Spring/Summer layering coat is nothing new. I’ve been wearing them for years – it’s the easiest way to layer in the warmer months, it affords you plenty of pocket room for your daily carry (without stuffed pockets), and it always looks more suave than a simple polo & chinos – especially when night falls.
Here Wes takes it for a test drive around SoHo, to give you an idea of the layering potential throughout the warmer (and cooler) months.
Thanks, as always, for reading.
Yours in Style,
