The Boots: Rancourt & Co. Shearling-Lined Dresden Boots — $365
Again, let’s think about the big picture — and thus, the big-ticket items you need in your closet (and on your feet) this winter season. While there are plenty of pairs of stylish leather boots to choose from out there, few combine everything into one handsome package quite like the Rancourt & Co. Shearling-Lined Dresden Boots. Featuring handsewn construction and Horween leather, the Dresden Boots are also, as one would expect, lined in cozy shearling. Complete with a rugged (and treaded) rubber sole, the Rancourt & Co. Dresden Boots could be the most essential footwear purchase you make this season.
The Scarf: Taylor Stitch Scarf in Oatmeal Alpaca — $98
The Gloves: Hestra Deerskin PrimaLoft Gloves — $125
Lest we forget, durable winter gloves are an absolute must, whether you’re layering up with a rugged field jacket or a slim topcoat. And since we’re accepting nothing less than the best, I’d say you ‘ve got to pick up the Hestra Deerskin PrimaLoft Gloves, featuring just the right combo of sleek style and functionality. PrimaLoft insulation will keep your digits nice and toasty, while elastic cuffs make these easy to slip on and off. These stylish winter gloves are certainly an investment in terms of price, but it’ll be one that pays off … according to me, at least.
The Beanie: Taylor Stitch Beanie in Navy Alpaca — $48
When are socks more than just, y’know, socks? When the socks in question happen to be the Wigwam Cypress Socks, and when those socks happen to be keeping your feet warm this winter. Reliable winter socks can be a tricky proposition in terms of matter of style, but these cotton-nylon socks should be comfortable and breathable to wear. The Wigwam Cypress Socks are the sort of pair that are stylish enough to wear with classic dress shoes, yet dependable enough to wear with rugged winter boots while keeping your feet from overheating.
I don’t know about you, but I already feel warm and toasty just looking at some of these picks. When you layer up with the United By Blue American Jacket and complement that with plenty of other dependable winter accessories, you’ll have no trouble staying cozy in the snow. The trick comes in picking products that blend fashion and function, like the Rancourt & Co. Shearling-Lined Dresden Boots, featuring durable Horween leather. The same is true of smaller accesories, like the Taylor Stitch Beanie in Navy Alpaca and the complementary Taylor Stitch Scarf. And right on down to your socks, we’ve got you all set — the Wigwam Cypress Socks should be a go-to pair on many a cold night. I’m also a big fan of the Hestra Deerskin PrimaLoft Gloves, a reliable, sleek pair of winter gloves for outfits both tailored and casual. These picks should be enough to get your winter wardrobe started — you can expect plenty more #menswear tips for the cold weather in the weeks and months ahead.
