Aside from all the darkness, rain, and slush, this time of the year is pretty great here in the North. The expectation of the first lasting snow and the transformation of mood and landscape into winter. After seeing a good selection of fall and early winter looks out there (Free-Man, Philosophy of the Well-Fed, Up-North), I thought I'd give a shot at my own. Shirt - Gitman Vintage Purple Oxford (Roden Grey) Blazer - Rugby by Ralph Lauren Scarf - John Malloy Belt - Tanner Goods Natural Belt (C-Store) Gloves - Norse Projects x Hestra Tan Staale (GoodHood) Shoes - Tricker's Brown Zug Ilkley (Pediwear.co.uk) Jeans - Nudie Steel Grey Even Steven (Yoox) Down Vest - Penfield (Yoox)
Winter is on its way and I can't wait. My latest footwear acquisition arrived yesterday - a pair of classic Sorel Caribou boots. These rate high in the nostalgia factor as I had the same boots as a kid in Prince George. Pity the once proudly Canadian brand is now US owned though.
