Navigating transitional weather in style means knowing how to layer clothes for everyday wear and rugged adventures alike. Like changing your oil and casting upstream, knowing how to layer up for any forecast (and every occasion) is a skill worth having. From a clean and classic combo to a work-ready getup, we're here to help with our handy field guide to layering in any season.

Clean & Classic

Whether it’s a weekend outing or a night on the town, a cardigan sweater is a  timeless layering piece that adds class and curb appeal to any outfit. We recommend keeping it simple with a classic tee and some well tailored chinos or rugged jeans for a fit that’s 100% trend proof.

Rugged & Refined

A great way to look sharp when you’re saddling up to either the bar or the dinner table is to build your look around a statement piece like a Bomber Jacket. Add a button down oxford shirt and some selvedge denim for a considered ensemble that’s far from stuffy.

Tough & Timeless

For a classic, casual look that’s ready to put in the work, you can’t go wrong with a shirt jacket. Not only is it versatile and durable, but since it breaks at the hip, the style makes you appear taller (we’ll take it). We like to pair ours up with a simple button up shirt and some sturdy work pants (like our Chore Pant) for a timeless workwear look.

Insulated & Impervious

A great way to add insulation and visual intrigue is to layer a versatile cotton sweater under a chore coat or denim jacket. The textured base layer draws the eye in and keeps you warm while a tough top layer fends off the elements. Finish the look with some trusty chinos for an outfit that looks great just about anywhere, and is ready for anything.

Brave The Elements

When it comes to being ready for outdoor adventures, a classic pullover layered beneath a rugged jacket is sure to keep you equipped. Pair it with a water repellent windbreaker for an outfit that fears no forecast, or throw on a denim jacket and chinos for a hard-wearing look that’s ready to go around town.
