Cashmere Smooth

February 29th, 2016

There’s nothing smoother – literally and figuratively – than pure cashmere. In the jungle of menswear fabrics, this rare goat hair is the undisputed king.

A pure cashmere fabric insulates three times as effectively as wool of the same weight. This means that a cashmere overcoat doesn’t have to be big and bulky to be warm. So it’s not just about the butter-soft hand, the effortless drape, or the luxurious sheen – it’s also about the fineness of the cloth that allows it to be tailored trim for a rakish, 3-season coat.

With that said, here we highlight one of the newest additions to the AOS collection; our tobacco cashmere overcoat.

Earthtone Layering


I was so excited when I found this perfect rich tobacco color. It’s timeless, flattering on any skin tone, and works with many different color combos.

How about this for a palette: tobacco, burgundy, chestnut, yellow, oxblood. When looking for color inspiration, look to mother nature.

Re-Think Casual


It’s time to re-think your casual attire gentlemen, and add a little elegance to your day-to-day style.

An outfit like this (cashmere overcoat, band collar shirt, waistcoat + trouser, and oxblood loafers) is soft, comfortable and sartorially nonchalant. Not to mention, each garment is super versatile and designed to last the test of time.
