During this mid-term of the winter season when the temperatures can be the coldest and the weather remains decidedly harsh, we’re looking for garments and goods to accommodate the current conditions and carry us into the warmer weather of spring. From Alden, De Bonne Facture, and Bates Hats, we have a transnational curation of transitional goods perfect for today and tomorrow that offer seasonal and styling versatility for an inspired ensemble. From head to toe, this collection of timeless and season-less goods embodies the core principles of quality craftsmanship and enduring design upon which we build our wardrobes.
From Alden, we bring you the iconic menswear Indy Mocc Toe 403 in Brown Chromexcel with its contrasting thread, machine stitch moccasin toe that’s complemented with a natural leather split storm welt and neocork sole. This accommodating Trubalance-lasted brown boot can match up to almost any refined-casual ensemble. The 403 is paired with the signature Snuff Calf Suede 4511HC Plain Toe Boot that represents a clean configuration with a leather option that should be in every evolved wardrobe. The 4511HC is balanced with an antiqued reverse storm welt and midsole on the Alden proprietary low-profiled split commando sole and dress-shaped orthopedic Barrie Last.
De Bonne Facture brings the trans-seasonal heat in cool, contemporary French style across several categories. We are pleased to introduce the Paneled Corduroy Button Down Shirt in Beige and Brown for a refined nod to the crazy-fun shirts that were popular during the menswear revival of the early 2000’s, elevated in a soft and structured Austrian corduroy in tonal shades for a sophisticated charm that offers inspired styling. To represent the DBF mulesing free and undyed wool sustainability agenda, we have the Boucle knits back in the signature Undyed Taupe Crewneck, and a new Undyed Brown Zipped Sweater using the Natural Brown.
Then, the shop favorite Overshirt is revealed in a new Brushed Italian Wool coming in a complex Herringbone Check pattern using Undyed yarns to yield a natural land-to-garment authenticity in a heritage-inspired piece that offers plenty of daily usage and ensemble coordination opportunities. Lastly, we have a lighter weight, suiting grade Navy Check Fine Crepe Wool Cardigan Jacket that gives the sartorial styler some midweight ammunition to transition from winter to spring in a piece that converts from tailoring to casual with ease and comfort.
Lastly, with a tip of the Bates Hat we bring you a pairing of versatile caps and colorways to offer adaptable styling punctuation to various ensembles. Our new and exclusive Ball Cap design with Bates comes in the heavy weight Loden Wool comprised of cleanly finished Melton and designed for the alpine outdoors in all-purpose Black and Forest. Offering equal palette and style adaptability we have two greyscale, flecked, and thick-yarned Magee Donegal Tweed Toni Caps known for their mild and modern proportional take on a traditional paneled cap to channel a bit of British country to the worldly urban gentleman.
