Warm It Up: A Winter Wool Trifecta

January 17th, 2017

A stylish business casual outfit idea that’s perfect for winter

Winter is one of my favorite times for menswear. Killer coats. Lots of layering. Scarves. Chunky sweaters. Rich textures and patterns. And hearty fabrics. Today, I’m sharing a great winter business casual look, featuring a trifecta of wools.

One of the keys to business casual is making the formal somehow seem a little less formal. A patterned blazer is one way to do that. Remember that the size of the pattern will greatly effect how “in your face” it seems. A larger pattern is more flamboyant. A smaller pattern is more conservative.

You’ve got a have a wool tie during the colder months. I believe we’ve mentioned this before. In a rust color, it’s a great complement to fall style and also offers a bit of color warmth during the wintertime. I’ve a big fan of the wool ties our friends at Seaward & Stearn are making.


It never ceases to amaze me how changing a watch’s strap will completely transform your timepiece. While I love my 1675 on its original Oyster bracelet, having on a distressed leather strap is just what the doctor ordered for some outfits.

A well-tailored pair of grey wool pants are a winter wardrobe staple. They’re honestly one of the most versatile pairs of pants you can own. Business casual. Entertaining. Date night. Fully dappered. Endless possibilities.
