The List: 12 New Men’s Style Picks to Start 2019 Off Right

Buck Mason

Kicking off today with a beautifully made shawl cardigan from a classic American brand.

There are times when the weather, the season itself and even the day of the week merit nothing but the best men’s style gear you can get your hands on. Especially given that January’s chilly weather is bearing down on us (or most of us, that is). With that being said, today’s featured pick is the excellent Buck Mason Ash Vintage Cashmere Shawl Cardigan. It’s a beautiful piece of work, and it’s made particularly well for winter layering with a slim henley shirt. So, that’s how we’re starting today’s edition of The List. Let’s get upgraded for the new year.
