What a winter we’re having! Cold, warm, freezing, snowy, sunny, sleeting. We’ve run the gamut and we’re betting that your wardrobe is pulling double duty. Those “year-round” (three season suits, really) could stand some R&R. That’s when you reach for something like the combination above.
It almost goes without saying that gray flannel trousers are the cold weather alternative to warmer temperature’s cotton khakis. They go with everything and are extremely comfortable to wear. (Keep in mind that you can wear double-pleated trousers without looking like you’re 100 years old by having them cut slimmer!) Gray flannels pair naturally with a carded wool (it feels like flannel thanks to having a bit of “nap” to the hand) sportcoat.
The great thing about a sportcoat like the one above is that it goes really well with khakis, too. Always a plus in Richmond with our schizophrenic weather patterns.
At Leviner Wood, we may even have some in stock for those of you who can’t wait. Call Larry and drop by….
There is still a bit of snow in the tree well this morning and the forecast is for temperatures in the upper 60′s!
Don’t like the Richmond weather? Wait a minute…. That makes it hard to dress for these shoulder season days that begin in the 30′s and end in the 60′s. But after Snowmageddon and its sequel, who’s complaining? Bring on spring!
One way to thumb your nose at the groundhog is to wear your lighter colors. In that spirit, Leviner Wood’s fabric of the month is a lightweight carded wool in Oxford gray. A beautiful stripe, subtle herringbone and the lighter color will compliment any of the brighter ties in your wardrobe.
Oxford gray multistripe. USD$825, through the end of February.
