The New Comfort Clothing

November 9th, 2015

This one goes out to all the guys whose weekend wardrobes consist of hoodies and sweatpants because they “just want to be comfortable”. It’s nothing new, man is a creature of comfort and convenience.

As the tailored aesthetic continues to become more and more popular, however, contemporary menswear brands are mashing-up everything we love about comfort clothing (soft, warm, stretchy fabrics) with everything we love about traditional menswear (the slimming effect, layering potential, convenient pockets placements, etc).

To get you thinking about dressing cozy (not sloppy) this season, here are three looks that look sharp and sophisticated but feel like wearing pajamas.

Cashmere Oversuit

It’s not too often you find an “overcoat-suit” made of cashmere. Once you do, good luck taking it off.

Fleece knit jacket with patch pockets, cashmere funnel-neck sweater, crushed velvet split-hem pants, marled wool socks…

This is like wearing tailored blankets.

Rolling out of the house in a t-shirt and sweatpants is a whole different look when you finish it with a tailored topcoat, a chunky scarf, and a smart boot.
