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 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?

It's almost sweater weather, so that got my thinking about one of my favorite sweaters (above). Initially featured back in 2011… since then a couple of designers have made some scenic sweaters, but few, if any, as great as this.
