10 awesome looks from the HSS community
We received 100s of submissions for our call to be featured in the most recent video highlighting your best winter outfit ideas. To say it was difficult to pare it down to just 40 would be an understatement. It was even harder to choose 10 favorites from that list, but there were some gentlemen who really stood out to me and who I wanted to feature here.
You can’t beat a good belted safari jacket. Especially one in a winter-weight with a subtle herringbone. An excellent combination of earth tones here and I’d like to particularly highlight the hunter green turtleneck.
There’s something about a Prince of Wales check flannel sport coat that just says “winter”, isn’t there? A very elegant and classic–but modern–look. White trousers are a very unexpected (in a refreshing way) winter choice. But the real hero piece here is the wonderful mustard yellow turtleneck.
This photo really made my day when it came in. Never mind the perfectly put together outfit here–big shout out for the chunky cable knit cardigan–because what this really shows is that a great smile can take an outfit from great to exceptional.
A perfectly-executed classic winter suited outfit. Grey flannel suit. Two-inch cuff. Double-breasted waistcoat. And a statement coat with some simple pattern mixing via the tie. What else can you say?
Not everyone can pull off a suit like this with an effortlessness and confidence that we see on display here. And while the suit certainly stands out, it’s the winter white mock neck sweater that steals the show, in my opinion.
A wonderful “elevated casual” look here. A nice mix of dressy and casual elements with the camel coat, white jeans, and hunter green shirt. Footwear choice is absolutely perfect for the overall vibe of this look.
Here, we’ve got a masterclass in the classic “menswear uniform”. Navy jacket. Grey flannel trousers. Burgundy patterned tie. Subtle complementary pocket square. And a nice touch with the button-down collar and wider candy stripe of the shirt.
I’m not sure if this is what I call a “Hollywood” flannel or light grey fresco suit. But, nevertheless, it’s a color that is super classic and really harkens back to a golden age of men’s style. (And not to mention that it’s a color that not everyone can pull off.) Everything about this look is perfectly executed. The burgundy tie with the subtle pattern is the cherry on top.
Another excellent take on the classic menswear uniform–this one with a bit more of a preppy feel. A great Prince of Wales check jacket, OCBD, and perfect club-style tie. While a light grey flannel pant might be the “obvious” choice, I’ve got to give props for the biscuit color here.
Never overlook a chunky shawl collar cardigan as a comfy alternative to a suit jacket or sport coat. It’s a great way to show some casual sophistication and paired with a turtleneck–even better. I particularly love the addition of the pocket square to bring that point home!
