Your Winter Wardrobe – The Essentials Every Man Needs
Surviving the Autumn and Winter season is all about mixing practicality and timeless style. Since ‘fast fashion’ and novelty clothing are a massive driver of waste, landfill build-up, and wasted money, we’re looking at gear that will outlast season after season. It’s better to make an investment with your clothing rather than having to keep replacing the same pieces.
New Winter Boots for Men
Blundstone boots are a staple for Vancouverites. They’re comfortable and super hard-wearing. They’ve got a few new styles for Fall/Winter, including these rainbow boots. If you’re looking for something a little warmer for the inevitable chilly Winter, check out the Blundstone 584 – Winter Thermal Rustic Brown
Adventure-Proof Winter Pants for Men
Live Free Adventure, Duer – $148
This hybrid jogger/pant with a relaxed thigh is ideal for slim and athletic body types. Features for maximum versatility include urban styling, adjustable cuffs, zippered cargo pockets, and a DWR application to protect against spills and rain.
Performance Denim Relaxed, Duer – $139
Developed for athletic builds, this 5-pocket offers a relaxed fit through the hip and thigh with a tapered leg for a trim look and feel. Technical features for extended range of motion, durability, and comfort. Now crafted with organic cotton.
The Never-Out-of-Style Fisherman Beanie
Norlond Wool Ribbed Fisherman Beanie – $42
A double rib-knitted Merino Wool Hat from Norland is the perfect hat to wear in any cold place. This beanie is specially designed to give you that Fall fashion style and provide you with much-needed warmth this Autumn and Winter.
Norlond is a USA fisherman beanie company. We are inspired by the history of Northern sailors and fishermen who knew the reason and benefits of these nice ribbon-rolled beanies.
The Best Gloves for Men
Finding really good gloves is so hard. They often look pretty much the same but there are only a few that will really stand up to the job Winter after Winter.
Watson Gloves are made with generations of skill and are the perfect hand protection for just about any task imaginable. Whether they source our gloves from the world’s finest manufacturers or handcraft them in their local factory, every pair of gloves they sell has been selected from top-of-the-line materials, design, and craftsmanship.
I love heavyweight shirts. They keep their shape and feel great. They just look better too. My go-to brand is Finnley, a two-person team based right here in British Columbia. Somehow they manage to launch and run a clothing company that exclusively sells amazing pieces. Everything is high quality and made with care.
