Seacliff Shawl Collar Sweater
Robert Talbott
Sold by: Patrick James

Fit Guide
The Layer. Shawl collar sweaters are stylish and timeless at the same time, which is always a win to us. This Robert Talbott version will be your “go-to” all season long, in its modern, relaxed fit, and neutral navy color. The blend of alpaca and merino wool creates a soft and lightweight feel to this luxurious sweater. And the subtle self-chevron pattern takes it out of the ordinary. This is a great sweater to layer - over a solid or patterned shirt with khakis or corduroys for the office; or, with a t-shirt and jeans for the weekend.

The Anatomy of an Outfit: Gents’ Cold Weather Edition

We’re deep into football season, and trying not to eat the Halloween candy before the big day arrives. So that means colder weather – and if you live somewhere like we do (Chicago’s our hometown), it’s just going to keep getting colder. And the change in weather brings about a question we hear often…”What do I wear?” Most weeks, we talk about new trends and colors, and help with what to wear for a specific event. But we know that’s not all the advice you can use to have a well-rounded wardrobe- there’s also the “everyday” stuff. So that’s our focus this week. What key pieces do you need to create a seasonal, modern look that will be appropriate – for work, a night out, a casual day? What truly is the “Anatomy of an Outfit”? We’re breaking down the essentials that will get you through the season in style and comfort, so you always have the staples you need to dress with ease.

Take a look at a few key pieces of any outfit here, and then head over to Fashion Finds, where we break down the anatomy of 2 outfits for each: work (Tuesday), a night out (Wednesday), and a casual day (Thursday) this season. If you like something, just click on the “Shop It” button to buy it from our suggested retailer. And let us know what you think through the comments section below and on social media.

The Top. Adding a shirt in a fresh, seasonal color will instantly update your wardrobe. The purple color of this Thomas Dean shirt is a refreshing alternative to blue, and just as versatile to match to your jeans, khakis, and wool pants in black, navy, or grey. The diamond pattern makes it interesting enough to wear on its own, but is subtle enough to easily work under a sweater or sport coat, too. The modern fit is relaxed for comfort, so you can wear it from work to drinks.

The Bottom. Corduroys have returned for the season, and this russet color gives them the update they deserve. It’s the perfect neutral shade of cognac brown that works with most every color, and easily holds its own with a tweed sport coat or navy blazer. They take on a rugged look with a simple denim shirt on the weekend. Citizens of Humanity cut these with a modern fit that gives you some room in the seat and thigh, but with a narrower leg that keeps them look current.

The Shoes. A pair of shoes that works with a lot of different outfits, looks great, and deals with the season’s weather? We’d say that’s a must-have, and Timberland delivers with these oxfords. The grained leather is waterproof, and they use their Gripstick anti-skid rubber bottom, so you can walk through those slushy and icy sidewalks. The simple style works well with khakis or jeans, for the office and the weekend.

The Dapper Accessory. A dapper guy pays attention to the details and a pocket square is an important one. This Italian silk print from Robert Talbott is one of our favorites, in a pattern that combines burgundy and blue over a taupe glen plaid. The result is a stunning classic that will work with all your blue and grey suits and sport coats.
