Military Details To Combat the Wardrobe Ho-Hums

When we say ‘military trend’ you may conjure up images of faux medals, but rest assured, this interpretation is masculine and subtle. This season’s reinvention of the military details comes in inspiring colors like that rich shade of olive green, always dapper navy, and some touches of neutral khaki. And sure, it brings out style details like double-breasted button details - awesome on outerwear – patch pockets, and cargo details. At its core, it’s about a crisp and rugged feeling, so whether you apply it to the design details of your clothing or the colors you wear, the end result is a clean and modern refresh that will provide just the appropriate update you need to feel great.

J.Crew - Dock Peacoat with Thinsulate®
Military style is on full display with this J.Crew peacoat. We really appreciate how they stuck to the authentic roots of a true Navy peacoat, like those issued in the ‘30’s. So, it has a timeless vibe with all the modern updates – perfect for the Mark Shale gent, this one will never go out of style. Front flap pockets have been added for convenience and a Thinsulate liner added for warmth. In J.Crew’s typical modern fit, every gent can enjoy this one any day of the week.

The olive green color gives this classic cashmere sweater a fresh update for the season. From Brooks Brothers Red Fleece Collection, the fit is trimmer and more contemporary than the typical Brooks Brothers you may know, giving it the right modern feel that is still not too fitted (Size up if you want a truly relaxed fit). While any blue or white shirt looks good under it, a button down in plaid or denim really steps it up. The cashmere is soft and luxe, so it’s a sweater you’ll feel comfortable wearing to the office or for a more casual outing.

What says military inspiration more than olive cargo pocket pants? Also from Brooks Brothers contemporary Red Fleece Collection, they have a slimmer leg, so they have a more polished look than your older baggy cargos - making them a staple that can even be worn to the office on a Casual Friday with oxfords or chukka boots and a button down shirt. Adding an unstructured navy blazer works, too. On the weekend, go with your usual sneakers and favorite t-shirt or thermal.
