J. CREW

 

A jacket that should be in every guy's wardrobe, crafted in rugged waxed cotton with a fixed hood. Finished with an adjustable drawstring waist, a chambray lining and a double-front closure, it delivers a one-two punch to even the most blustery weather (consider it the warm-weather answer to a winter parka). Cotton with wax/oil finish. Zip with button closure. Functional buttons at cuffs. Two small back vents with snaps. Fully lined. Spot clean.

Paint Me A Rainbow

March 13th, 2012

 

Brightly colored denim is popping up everywhere from the streets to the runway.  There's a pair in just about every shade of the rainbow, which makes it the perfect style for Spring.  For a simple, subtle take on the color movement, stick to softer shades and pair them with a neutral top in black or white.  If you’re a risk taker then pick pants in a bold hue and encourage wear them with an equally vivid top either in a similar shade for a monochromatic look or a bright contrasting hue to maximize the trend.
