Anyone who’s been to NYC in the dead of winter knows that black is the unofficial uniform of the coldest and darkest days. Having just returned from Fashion Week activity, I can tell you that that tradition is alive and well. I love the idea of a uniform, especially when it comes to menswear, but there are times when I like to stand apart, just a bit but not too much.

Truth be told, I may have been swayed towards the standard black parka if I had the chance. If you remember, however, I came by this coat out of pure necessity. It was the only color in my size at the Woolrich store, when I found myself with improper outerwear a few weeks ago. Looking back, I’m glad the brown parka chose me. In a sea of black parkas, it’s got a bit of a uniqueness to it that I like.
I get lots of questions about color combinations, especially if it’s okay to mix brown and black. Somewhere it was written that this is a “traditional” no-no, but it’s one of those “rules” that doesn’t hold it’s salt for me.
Thanks for reading.
