2. Belted Shawl
This cardigan jacket is from my graduate collection for the Menswear Design program at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
For a number of reasons, it’s one of my favorite pieces. I wear it as outerwear, as a housecoat, and layered as a sweater when it gets really cold.
Belted shawl cardigans have always looked very regal and confident in my opinion, especially in contrast with a more formal context.
Take a three-piece suit and trade the jacket for a chunky sweater. From traditional corporate to non-traditional “business casual” in a matter of seconds.
I’m not a huge fan of traditional worsted pinstripes, but I love the texture of flannel chalkstripes. More on this soon.
The double monk loafer has become super popular in the menswear community, but don’t sleep on the single monkstrap!
These oxblood wingtip beauties are easy to slip on and stand out even amongst the most up-to-the-minute menswear crowds.
