This parka comes straight from Nigel Cabourn’s own archive, a design based on an original flight jacket. The shell’s made with Ventile while the interior’s lined with Harris Tweed. The parka’s topped off with an asymmetrical zip and chest pockets, features that were utilized to enhance articulation and allow easy access whilst in flight.
Wings and Horns delivers this duffel hoodie with toggle closure and a Polartec insulation. The warm Polartec ThermaPro fleece body is crucial in this weather as are the double exterior pockets and ribbed cuff and hem. The grey shell is the perfect color choice as it’s versatile and the mesh texture will easily be distinguished from your sweatshirts.
Unionmade’s collaborative efforts with fellow Bay Area resident Golden Bear continues with this impeccably crafted pea coat. It’s a traditionally styled double breasted pea coat with leather bound pockets and a button collar closure. The best thing about this pea coat is the fit. They’ve trimmed it down to take away the boxy appearance we’re used to seeing with pea coats.

We’ve seen alot of gift guides pop up and I’m sure you’ve peeped some of them. Last year, we dropped our first-ever gift guide and it was well received (for the most part) but we’ve really dug deep this time around. Before we get this fun started, I have to say there are alot of gems in here, folks and I’m not talking “Oh you fancy, huh?” gems. Some stuff is more affordable than others but all-in-all we’ve zoned in on quality.
So let’s start shall we? Navigation below.
This Isaora limited edition slim fit shirt is made from Japanese indigo cotton and is lined with quilted insulated lining. It’s warm, windproof and come in an amazing fit. The shirt is made exclusively for Ace Hotel New York and Roden Gray.
rag & bone‘s fall collection is pretty serious, folks and their Wellington Trench reaffirms this for us. The double breasted wool trench comes in a heather green finish and packs an over-sized collar which is great protection for the current weather. Alongside the quality and craftsmanship, rag & bone’s fit is always impeccable. This is a must-have for the winter and don’t be surprised if you see this piece land in our annual holiday gift guide (coming soon).
Made from 100% Virgin wool, Folk‘s hand knit Moss Stitch cardigan is one well-crafted item. The elbow patches are made from cow suede for durability and to add texture. The two-tone charcoal finish really stands out and that coupled with the use of some high quality fabrics drives this piece home. As for the fit, it looks generous in all the right places, allowing you to layer up if needed without looking uncomfortable.
Who better to craft a down-filled pea coat than Junya Watanabe? This impressive outerwear piece features a black quilted water resistant puff exterior with down filling. The details are immense, with wool plaid flannel under the collar, a double breasted button front closure and black corduroy detailing on front pockets. The time dedicated to making each of one of these in Japan must have been extensive, because crafting something this special requires lots of it.
Nom de Guerre‘s waxed cotton parka is a must have outerwear piece for the current season. It’s getting cold and the winds are picking up so why not pick up somehting that’s made of a durable fabric like waxed cotton. It’s water and wind resistant and the jacket itself fits straight with a slightly slim cut. The field jacket’s fitted with a detachable hood and big buttoned flap pockets.
