THIS IS HOW WE WANT TO DRESS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

As the weather shifts, we layer up, dress up and sometimes stay inside a little more. We love this time of year and encourage you to embrace it all: Roll up your sleeves with cool new plaid shirts, appreciate the perfect balance of softness, weight and color with our favorite new wovens or find a jacket that not only fits like a glove, but feels like it was made with your personality in mind.

ONE


UPDATED PLAID SHIRTS

Guys get compliments on how they look when they’re in plaid. (Maybe because it always seems like a natural choice and we’re at ease in plaid). It's also a great way of having something colorful without being showy.

Consider a welcome refresh this season. Start with a shirt perfect explains the carbon2cobalt way of elevating a shirt in 'something truly special' status — the Wildwood Plaid with classic plaid with a unique super-soft double cloth. Handsome, woodsy green on the outside and refined light chambray on the inside.  Perfect on its own or open as a layer with a henley or tee shirt.

NEW IDEAS FOR KNIT SWEATERS

If you’re like us, you love the simplicity and function of a cotton hoodie. And of course we appreciate the warmth of a knit sweater that is soft and not too bulky this time of year. But what if you could combine the two? We think the Stratum Sweater might actually be the answer — it has a nice heft you get from a knit, but it’s got the ease of a hoodie. The striped sleeves, hood and back add extra interest to this heathered soon-to-be favorite. 

THREE


LEATHER THAT will endure

We’re ready or a leather jacket that’s something we want to hold on to for a lifetime. With it’s moto-inspired snap collar, quilted shoulder detailing and best of all, wonderfully soft leather that isn’t too bulky or limiting — the Element Q Leather Jacket is a modern take on a classic and might be the one jacket that we’ll never get rid of. It zooms around quick-to-fade trends and feels more in the realm of something iconic. 

FOUR


A LITTLE BIT CLASSIC, YET ENTIRELY NEW

While there’s no doubt this alpine-inspired knit pullover — the Oslo Hoodie —would be perfect after a day in the snow, we have more localized, daily aspirations for this one. So full of cool texture, softness and details — the cool sports car red details surround the nubby birdseye stitch that makes it a standout. Perfect tones for a guy’s style and so welcoming for the entire winter season. This one is definitely on our wish list.

FIVE


A smart layer for the season

If there’s one must-have for this time of year, it’s a henley. It’s a little dressier than a tee, but equally as comfortable and relaxed. Make your mark with our Watermark Henley — it looks great with a tee underneath and a jacket or shirt over it. But even worn alone, it's a standout with it deep sea blue texture and waves of color that fade in and out. So versatile and practical, if you don’t currently have a henley in your wardrobe, the soft drape on this one might be the perfect reason to add one for the upcoming holiday season.
