1. Why is it a Find? This Vineyard Vines merino wool and cashmere blend sweater is the perfect weight and color to finish out the Winter and head straight in to Spring. The cable knit and crewneck design is timeless, so you’ll always look updated.
Wear it with: Now: The soft pink shade is a fresh color that works with your dark jeans and khakis for the remaining Winter weeks, giving a little life to the somber neutrals in your closet. Add a blue chambray shirt underneath for a more casual feel, while a blue plaid button up gives it a more tailored appearance.
Later: As we hit the early Spring months, lighten up the rest of your outfit. Pair it with tan, lighter grey khakis, or perfectly broken-in jeans. And layer it over a white t-shirt or cheerful white and blue gingham check button up. You can even throw this on with your shorts on a cool Summer evening by the beach – a great alternative to a jacket.
Fit Tip: It is an easy fit. Size down for a closer to the body fit.
Alternatives: There are three other great color options through the ‘shop it’ button, too.

2. Why is it a Find? J. Crew’s trench coat is what every gent needs to get through those late Winter and early Spring rainy days. The shorter, modern length covers a suit jacket or sport coat for your work and dressier event needs, and it looks just as good with casual clothes. The bonded cotton coat has four pockets – two for your hands and two for your stuff.
Wear it with: Now: Since this jacket is about repelling the water, you can easily layer your wool blazer or chunky sweater under it, so you can be sure to get plenty of use out of it – work or play.
Later: As the weather warms, it is the perfect late spring raincoat that works with your lightweight suits, or khakis and a button up shirt.
Fit Tip: The fit is modern, ideal for most gents, even when layering over heavier pieces. Size up for a truly, easier fit.
Alternatives: We are showing you the versatile navy, and we seriously love the additional vintage fatigue color you’ll also find through the ‘shop it’ button.

3. Why is it a Find? The year round weight of J. Crew’s wool navy blazer makes it a wonderful “wear now” and “wear later” piece. Truly versatile, it has updated narrower lapels and a slightly shorter length to give it modern attitude without being overly trendy. And the quality is truly fine. Its half Bemberg lining is normally only found in much more expensive garments, and really adds to the comfort. (Click through the ‘shop it’ button to see the interior detail images.) This one’s a real value.
Wear it with: Now: For the cold days still ahead, we like it paired with a sweater or sweater vest for warmth and a good seasonal look. It can be dressed up with wool trousers, and thanks to its own fine wool fabric, adds a dapper finish to dark wash jeans.
Later: When the weather warms up, wear it with a brighter color gingham check or a solid button up shirt. We always believe a tie adds a nice finishing touch for any upscale outing or day at the office.
Fit Tip: J. Crew’s Crosby fit is modern with a little extra room in the shoulders and body.
Alternatives: If you prefer a contemporary fit, this blazer is also available in their trimmer, Ludlow model.
