Men’s Winter LOOK BOOK: The Desert Bixby, The American Steeler, and The Urban Conductor

It’s the beginning of the year and the coldest  part of winter is about to hit. So, we wanted to suggest a few under coat layering options. I styled 3 looks on TUG ambassador Ben Swann to pay homage to early 1900s America, mixing hard edge workwear with southern sensibilities. 

A Man’s Winter. So what is a man’s winter? It’s stylish, yet simple. Detailed, but not ostentatious. It’s a layered tribute to his favorite styles. And it provides the opportunity to showcase his entire essence in one glance.

 

1: Desert Bixby 
Faded desert palette meets good ole boy. Stag Provisions, the company that provided our threads, is a Texas based company, so we mixed in a of bit southwest flavoring for the first look. The sandy coloring of the entire ensemble, the shirt pattern, and of course the desert boots gives us SW. While the shawl collar sweater, argyle socks, and fedora gives us classic casual 1950s southern gentleman. I especially love this look without the cardigan… its so simple and refreshing. Although many of us naturally wear dark colors in the winter, lighter hues display beautifully in crowds full of humdrum gray and black apparel. 

WINTER COAT: This look should be paired with a classic peacoat – navy, olive, tan, or beige. Scroll the options below:

 
STYLE DETAILS: Universal Works Olive Shawl Cardigan; Alex Mill Horizontal Donegal Shirt; Save Khaki Slub Twill Jeans; Yellow Luke Fedora; Clarks Desert Boot; Timex Weekender Watch; Garrett Leight Harding Sunglasses; Wooden TUG Pinback; Vinatage Beaded Bracelet; Bronze Pin.

The Urban Gentleman for American Express: AMEX ESSENTIALS

Hey TUG Family we recently had a feature in American Express's new online magazine – AMEX ESSENTIALS. Check out our fashion and style contribution to their December Issue, here.

 

The Urban Gentleman for AMEX Essentials
 
The beauty of simplicity should be embraced, especially when it comes to winter fashion. While the winter is a wonderful time to layer up, it’s easy for some gents to go overboard on the layering — long-sleeve shirt + vest + sweater + coat + scarf + gloves + hat + earmuffs + glasses + well, you get what I mean. Some people wear their entire closet… don’t be one of those people.
 
Over at The Urban Gentleman we’ve deemed it “The Year of Cashmere”, it’s our sweater material of choice for 2015-2016. Yes, it’s a bit more expensive, but it's super soft, fits the body well, and most importantly keeps you MUCH warmer. The additional warmth that a cashmere sweater provides will help streamline your winter layers silhouette, transforming you from stout to svelte.Try this look under your coat: crewneck cashmere sweater + straight or tapered fit denim + tassel loafers = an Urban Gent winter style win.

Layrite Deluxe Pomades: Grooming Review

LAYRITE: DELUXE POMADES & HAIR PRODUCTS FOR MEN

Summary of LAYRITE Products: This is a really great hair care line for the guy who doesn’t care to spend a long time in the mirror, but wants to look good. These products offer all day hold without the stiffness of other gels or the greasiness of some pomades. I personally vouch for these products and appreciate the compliments I get because of them. Sidenote: there’s something for all hair types. We got to try three products: Original, Superhold, and Supershine.

Below are individual reviews with the following information: 1.)Feel/Application 2.) Immediate Results  3.)Short-term/Long-term Results

Original: 1.) Feels like a solid gel but not sticky like most pomades 2.) When put in damp hair, it dries light and clean 3.) Holds for most of the day with my coarse hair type so I had to reapply, but there’s no greasy feeling which is a plus.

Superhold: 1.) Feels a lot like the Original 2.) Also feels light 3.) Although this looks and feels like the Original, it definitely offers better hold. No reapplication necessary.

Supershine: 1.) Feels creamy and has a nice smell. 2.) It immediately gives the hair a shine that’s neither overpowering nor greasy looking 3.) The shine is long lasting and also leaves the hair feeling soft and moisturized.
You can find these and other LAYRITE products here.

A Man’s Winter Staple: Camel Hair and Wool Sweater by Jeffrey Rudes

The Urban Gent x Jeffrey Rudes

Lately we’ve been prepping you for the cold weather – a couple of Fall looks to sport with your dog, our favorite scenic sweaters, and of course, a declaration that one of our chosen sweater material. We were sent a beautiful luxurious camel hair and wool sweater from designer Jeffrey Rüdes, who has just opened a store at 57 Greene Street in SoHo, New York.

The new flagship store

Iconic denim designer – Jeffrey Rudes

Jeffery was the creator of J BRAND – a premium denim brand. He sold J BRAND in 2014 to start his new namesake brand – Jeffrey Rüdes. And although he’s no longer singularly in the denim business, his new line is meant to compliment it. A nice pair of jeans can accompany many pieces in his collection. You don’t have to, of course, but you can and you’ll look good doing it. So naturally, that is what we did with our Rüdes winter knit.

Perfect fit and very soft

An ivory crew neck sweater is the perfect winter neutral. With dark skin it’ll beautifully contrast, with paler skin it’ll beautifully blend – almost like a nude. Both perfect palettes for this winter season. Get this winter staple, here

We paired our ivory wool and camel hair sweater with dark gray denim and brown tasseled loafers. This gave us an elegant, mature, neutral palette. The sweater would also look great if paired with matching ivory jeans and black velvet loafers -or- straight fit blue denim and your favorite pair of classic white kicks. How would you wear it?
