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.

The jackets feature some great detailing such as leather pocket details, wrist guards and cotton rib while coming in a slimmer cut to keep up with the times.
Japanese label visvim delivers their Hudson jacket, a pretty well-crafted piece that’s got some fine details. Head designer Hiroki Nakamura works with a sheep skin motif and delivers an amazing outerwear pickup that’s as functional as it is wearable.

Though we’re used to seeing symmetrical designs on a regular basis, switching it up once in a while is always welcomed. This “cutaway jacket” from Mountain Research is cut short in the front and features two front flap pockets, one that’s sized perfectly for your phone and another for larger items.

The quilted shoulder detailing helps it standout from the pack. Other highlight items include a melton wool overshirt and 3sixteen’s boiled wool vest in a charcoal finish.

French label Bleu de Paname is still fairly young but their products and delivery are really something to admire and respect. Entitled “uniforme,” the fall season collection features reworked bombers, work shirts, and jackets that acquire modern detailing like mismatched pockets and elbow patches. This down vest is just another solid offering from the line. The navy/gray combination works well and will definitely prove to be more versatile than folks think.
