Yay or Nay: Will you Gilet it this Winter?

wings-horns-fall-winter-2009-collection-20.jpg

Winter is often a season of necessity versus beauty. Unless one has enough in his wallet to buy a piece like this Alexander McQueen (a cool £1,095,) fashionistos are left to settle for cheap and not always stylish alternatives. The gilet (or body-warmer) is a fickle fashion item and this season it has been made-up in enticing chambray by label Wings + Horns.

Gilets often look awful; after all, the Michelin Man-look has never suited anyone. However, when worn over-sized and unzipped with skinny jeans and leather brogues, your padded-tube of fabric becomes the key component of a high-fashion look.

I would say ‘Yay’ to the idea of a gilet- simply follow Brandish’s style advice and you’ll be looking awesome anyway!

Its raining its pouring, and if you’d forgotten about the need to cover up you may be considering a new rainwear purchase.

Topman have a lightweight zip-up version availalable, perfect for staying visible in a wet festival. For something longer lasting that will see you through to autumn’s downfalls there’s this beauty from ASOS or the most authentic of the lot (courtesy of Valet) is this shiny, yellow raincoat by L.L Bean.

Love the Look: the army field jacket over suiting

army_over_suiting.jpg

It’s been a little while for me since The Sartorialist featured a must-have-item, but the artful combination of this olive green army field jacket worn over a suit had me searching for a similar jacket. An iconic item in the US, they’re available from the high-end (Ralph Lauren Black Label) to army surplus stores. Somehow, the olive green colour and the fact that it’s a purposeful, military item overrides the jacket’s essential scruffiness allowing it to combine well with smarter, more conventional items.

Pale and interesting: the Nudie denim jacket

Nudie_jean_jacket.jpg

I’ve been searching for the ‘perfect’ denim jacket for a while now, and this one by Nudie at ASOS comes pretty close. Pale, and ‘vintage looking’ It’s also short on the waist (essential), fitted, and (crucially) has no side pockets, this ensures that it won’t go baggy over time at the sides, as you won’t be tempted to shove your hands in your pockets.
