Every guy needs a smart sport coat and this year I picked the navy plaid jacket at Peter Manning NYC. Made from 100% Italian super 120’s wool, this blazer is a versatile and attractive alternative to the classic blue sport coat. It’s made in the same great cut as their Essex Jackets, and it can be dressed up or down. I think it’s perfect to wear with jeans. Remember everything is about the proper fit which you can manage in the store or online. If however, it needs to be adjusted a bit, they offer a $50 credit toward any tailoring.
Every gent will love these comfortable and luxurious slippers by TAFT. They were just released this month. Handmade in Spain with full-grain Spanish woven leather and sole and a faux fur lining. They are the epitome of the Metro Man style and I chose them for the high-quality craftsmanship and my appreciation for the country that gives us great olives and fine leather products — I am a bit biased as I lived in the Iberian Peninsula for several years. A must-have for comfort and style this winter.
In Williamsburg, you will find many wonderful and modern pieces to add to your wardrobe for the winter at Brooklyn Tailors. This season I chose their BKT35 Tailored Trousers in Corduroy — Blue. I admire the hue as well as cut of this pant — slim through the seat and leg, with a tapered ankle and a medium rise. They are gorgeous for strolling the streets and parks of the metropolis or in the lodge at your favorite ski resort.
