1. The camel overcoat
2. Layering your denim jacket
Rogue Fashion Trends is at it again with this killer of a jacket.They're calling it the Mushroom Funnel; I just call it my go-to overcoat. It's the perfect length to wear with a suit formally, and not long enough to make you feel like Michael Douglas in Wall Street...the 80's version.
The coat has some great stylish details, like the epaulettes (the shoulder straps) which give it a military feel. My favorite part of this coat is the double-collar, which allows you to pop it straight
up, or have it fan out like shown above. Trust me, in this coat, you won't go unnoticed.
With a lighter brown/camel coat, it's always safe to wear earth tones, nothing too bright or it'll really clash.
Now, on to the denim jacket. If your denim jacket fits correctly (snugly), you're probably doing it wrong for winter wear. A denim jacket can be layered similarly to how you would wear your cardigan. Hell, I've even worn mine under my chunky Club Monaco cardigan. If your denim jacket is a darker wash like mine, try to stay away from sporting it under a darker coat (charcoal or black). Wearing it with a light coat that demands attention allows you to pair a closer wash jean with it, without looking like you're late for a Willie Nelson show...he's still alive, right?
- When it's cold enough for a coat, go for a light brown/camel overcoat.
- Your denim jacket should be as snug as a cardigan--treat it like one.
- Cuff your jeans. Somewhere between 1-1 1/2 inches. Taller guys can always go for a little bit of a bigger cuff,-- but beware-- the bigger the cuff, the shorter your legs look, so be careful.
