You know we love a classic 3/4 length tailored topcoat. A good one is timeless, gentlemanly, and super versatile. This grey cashmere version with subtle red glenplaid, that we found in the Shockoe Atelier both the Liberty Fairs NYC menswear show, is a fantastic example of an outerwear piece that can boost an entire wardrobe.
Here are three of the hundreds of ways you could wear it.
1. All Business
A trim grey topcoat with a subtle texture is perfect to throw over a business suit. One like this works, with just a subtle touch of color, is still neutral enough to work with just about any suit color.

2. Casual Weekend
Throw it over a simple chunky sweater, like this oversized cream knit, with a pair of washed jeans and a sharp boot, and you have an instant smart casual look.
Perfect for dates, drinks, strolls, lunches, brunches…just about anything non-formal, really.
3. Traveling Light
This is exactly where I like to see Wes; the smooth operator.
I love a thin dark turtleneck but what makes this look, for me, is the creased and cuffed denim. That’s some next-level styling. It’s the little things that show good taste.
Thanks, as always, for reading.
Yours in style,
