The perfect fall layer? Very nearly. Easy to wear with a classic henley, a chambray shirt, some slim denim … you’re all good to go.

Follow me, Style Guide readers — today, we’re taking you through Corridor NYC and specifically, the brand’s stellar, stylish and rugged Duck-Dyed Indigo Overshirt. Previously seen in one of our fall style editions of The List — featuring rugged style essentials galore, the Corridor NYC Duck-Dyed Indigo Overshirt is a one-of-a-kind layering piece that’s perfect for what lies ahead this season (and beyond, of course). Corridor NYC has deep roots in the city, with a focus on production in Manhattan itself — that’s pretty cool, and it helps make the Duck-Dyed Indigo Overshirt a unique offering in terms of construction. For instance: The clay-colored corozo buttons are even hand-dyed in the Big Apple. Make no mistake though, this isn’t a beefy jacket that you can’t move around in; in fact, it’s perhaps the opposite.  The Duck-Dyed Indigo Overshirt is also made from — you guessed it — indigo-dyed canvas that’s enzyme-washed for softness. If you wanted a jacket to layer over a rugged henley, the Corridor NYC Duck-Dyed Indigo Overshirt should be your next purchase. And if you want a jacket that can do a little bit more than your average overshirt? The Duck-Dyed Indigo Overshirt is the way to go.

The reliable fit — easy to layer over a classic chambray shirt, and just as easy to slide on under your favorite topcoat — also makes the Corridor NYC Duck-Dyed Indigo Overshirt a winning pick-up.You simply don’t see too many classically styled, American-made jackets like this one anymore. It complements the rest of the Corridor NYC outerwear offering, too — need a piece to layer under one of the brand’s Waxed M-65 Jackets? The Duck-Dyed Indigo Overshirt is the way to go, my friends.  It’ll work just as well now as it well in the chilly early days of spring, especially when you throw it on over one of the best men’s T-shirts as you sprint out grab a coffee (OK, maybe “sprint” is the wrong word there). At any rate, the Corridor NYC Duck-Dyed Indigo Overshirt can do a heck of a lot when it comes to reliable style. Wear it with your favorite dark blue denim and a pair of classic leather boots for fall and winter style that’s essential & remarkably easy to wear … well, anywhere. Let me know in the comments if the Corridor NYC Duck-Dyed Indigo Overshirt is going to be making its way into your shopping cart!

Style Pick of the Week: Grayers Bayswater Fleece

A new fall and winter layer from a brand that nails the balance between casual and classy style.

My dear friends, it’s time for another Style Pick of the Week — are you as excited as I am? Let’s get pumped. If you’ve checked your calendar as of late, perhaps you were as shocked as I was to see that it’s … NOVEMBER. Seriously — where did the fall season go? That means we’re transitioning to colder temperatures and dressing in rugged fall style essentials all the way. And that means … well, that the Grayers Bayswater Fleece is going to be a new go-to layering move for you. The Bayswater Fleece is the type of modern update to a classic piece that Grayers does so well — slightly preppy, slightly classic and very easily wearable no matter how you style it. The brand draws inspiration from a mix of Americana and British styles, named for the type of pants that became so popular in Britain decades ago. As it were, the Bayswater Fleece is the type of piece that would work on a chilly British morning, maybe as you traipse across your country estate. But I digress. Made from heathered French terry twill fleece, the Grayers Bayswater Fleece is a perfect shirt for casual weekend style — part shirt, part jacket, that is. With two hand warmer pockets and two chest button pockets, it’s the sort of layer you can toss on with ease atop a slim striped henley or a classic chambray shirt — that’s about all you can ask for.

An easygoing silhouette that’s ideal for throwing on with the simplest of looks.

If you’ve been looking for an in-between layer to throw on for a casual stroll through your favorite park or a quick farmer’s market trip, the Bayswater Fleece is it. And if you want a shirt-jacket that you can wear to travel in comfort and style, the Bayswater Fleece is a winner in that regard, too. It adds instant polish to even the simplest of looks, like a classic men’s T-shirt or a vintage-inspired flannel shirt. And if you feel like layering up to take on a chilly fall or winter day? The Grayers Bayswater Fleece fits right in with a quilted field jacket and slim chinos (don’t forget rugged leather boots, either). And on top of its easy-to-wear styling potential, small design touches like those chest pockets and hand warmer pockets provide ample space for all your everyday carry essentials — don’t underestimate the importance of that. So, have you come around to the idea of grabbing the Grayers Bayswater Fleece for seasonal layering? Some pieces just make so much sense that it’s tricky not to buy them — right? Oh, and the good news is that it comes in under $100 via Bespoke Post. Add that to the list of positives, too. Yes indeed, if I were you… I’d make the Grayers Bayswater Fleece my next purchase. Want to let me know what you think of this piece? Hit me up on Twitter.

As always — thanks for reading!

See Now, Buy Now: Invest in the Rancourt & Co. Wolf Boots for Your Next Fall Adventure

A dependable, durable pair of Horween leather boots finished with a Vibram rubber sole — Rancourt & Co. knows how to make ’em the right way.

Over the past few weeks here at The Style Guide, we’ve admittedly talked a ton about rugged fall style, from the best men’s boots to durable outerwear to stylish fall shirting — but we’ve got more on the way today. Our latest recommendation when it comes to dependable fall style? The investment-quality, USA-made Rancourt & Co. Wolf Boots, available in time to close out fall and head into early winter (gulp) in style. An exclusive made just for Huckberry to commemorate the brand’s 50th anniversary, the Wolf Boots from Rancourt & Co. are made to last at least that long (no matter how hard you wear  ’em).  The brand has certainly pulled out all the stops to craft a one-of-a-kind pair of boots, starting with Chromexcel bark-tanned leather and finishing with handcrafted construction by the Rancourt team. We’d be remiss not to mention the waxed laces and metal eyelets, too. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, though.

Just like the Rancourt & Co. Carson Low Sneakers — a fitting pair of fall kicks in their own right — the Wolf Boots are as easy to wear during the work week as they are on the weekend. With details like Blake welt construction and cap toe stitching for durability, you can be sure they can take a beating. The Vibram rubber mini lug sole also provides grip and toughness to brave the elements this fall and winter. I’d wear them with a rugged overshirt and slim black denim to head to a brewery — a favorite pursuit of mine. For day trips and fall or winter hikes, the Rancourt & Co. Wolf Boots are also going to take you the distance.  Even during the work week, the Wolf Boots should be in your rotation. Now, maybe your closet is already packed full of tough boots … but it can’t hurt to add one pair, can it? Not when that pair is as stylish, dependable and well-made as the Rancourt & Co. Wolf Boots.

Will these Rancourt & Co. boots be heading your way soon? How would you style them?

Style Pick of the Week: Relwen Quilted Patrol Jacket

A sleek, functional jacket that offers up a modern spin on military inspiration.

Every week here at The Style Guide — heck, every day — it can be pretty tough to filter through so many different men’s style essentials to land on one, just one … Style Pick of the Week. And it was a tall order this week especially, but with the Relwen Quilted Patrol Jacket, I think we’ve hit the mark.  If you’re still searching for a durable, transitional and stylish fall jacket, the handsome Relwen Quilted Patrol Jacket is the one to buy — at least, that’s what I think.  Relwen specializes in sleek, functional and military-inspired menswear with a modern edge, but don’t let that scare you. If you’re just dipping your toes into more edgy and rugged outerwear, rest assured that the Relwen brand is very, very wearable for your daily commute and late fall adventures. In fact, the Quilted Patrol Jacket seen at the top of the page is positively packed with functionality and hard-wearing style. The quilted exterior is water-resistant, while the box-quilted nylon lining provides excellent warmth and a neat contrast in terms of color. It’s exclusive to Huckberry, so you know that A) The quality is excellent and B) It’ll likely fly off the site’s (digital) shelves quite fast. The Relwen Quilted Patrol Jacket also features a cool, easily wearable charcoal, also exclusive to Huckberry. So, we know this jacket is limited-edition and packed with excellent features. Let’s make it work with your wardrobe, shall we?

The truly excellent thing about a rugged fall jacket with classic military roots is that it can be paired up with plenty of other essentials in your closet already. Take a slim striped henley and your favorite pair of black jeans, then add some stylish leather boots — bingo, perfect weekend ensemble at the ready.  Perhaps you can see this jacket working for you on a rainy commute or a road trip, which is all well and good: The Relwen Quilted Patrol Jacket features that durable cotton-nylon exterior and a no-frills charcoal color. That straightforward design means it’ll keep you dry in inclement weather while pairing up with everything from a slim chambray shirt and grey chinos to a classic Oxford shirt and navy corduroys. Either of those combos would work well for grinding out your next 9-to-5 session, to say the least. And if it’s weekend adventure you seek, the Relwen Quilted Patrol Jacket checks all the boxes, too. Style it over a rugged overshirt and add stylish hiking boots to go off-road — or stroll down the street to your favorite brewery. I make no bones about it — wherever you want to go, the Relwen Quilted Patrol Jacket can take you there this fall and winter. And that’s more than good enough to call the Quilted Patrol Jacket today’s Style Pick of the Week.

With that, we’re off for the weekend!
