Silky Smooth Spring Layering

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. 

Last season our take on the “luxury duster” was the Silk Tweed Mac and this season our version is the Summer Tweed Herringbone Topcoat.

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,
