Milano Fit Brushed Twill Olive Sport Coat
Brooks Brothers
Sold by: Brooks Brothers

Fit Guide
Olive sport coats are just as versatile as navy or grey, and this is an especially dapper find from Brooks Brothers. The combination of a contemporary fit, and luxe Italian brushed cotton looks great with dark tan 5-pocket cotton twill pants, dark grey wool trousers or dark wash jeans. Add a solid or pattern blue shirt and a knit tie for a polished outfit. Or, keep it more casual with a solid crew neck sweater and t-shirt.

Green with Envy…When They are Looking at You

Green…it’s really a power color, isn’t it? It represents money, the power of creating envy in others, and go. So, it’s no surprise that it has worked it’s way in to our wardrobes this season…with that kind of power, who are we to say no? From a true green to sage (greenish-grey) to deep olive, we’re seeing a lot of amazing options. For us, olive is the prominent shade, since it’s so universally flattering and masculine. It looks great with denim, dark grey, navy, black – and it’s a great neutral to pop with a little orange. It can read like a color or a neutral. You decide – but we’re happy to give you a little direction.

Take a look at a few of our favorites here, and then head over to Fashion Finds, to see more of our favorites for work, after 5, and casual dressing.

This is more than a puffer jacket. Polo Ralph Lauren has taken inspiration from a sport coat – and all the interesting details, like a notch lapel with a suede undercollar and elbow patches – to create an outerwear piece that has all the sartorial interest of any men’s clothing piece. (Click through the “shop it” to see all the details.) But, of course, it will actually protect you from the winter elements. Wear it over a sweater and wool pants for a dressy look or with jeans for a casual look.
