My MANy Bags Trendspotting #13

1) Tweed

Balance the uneven surface of a tweed jacket with the worn-in comfort of a chambray shirt and white jeans. A roped leather belt is both soft and polished—making it the perfect bridge between wool and cotton.

Blazer and shirt by Polo by Ralph Lauren. Jeans by Moschino. Watch by IWC. Belt by Martin Dingman. Bag by Osklen. Necklace throughout, model’s own.

2) Shearling

Nothing communicates rugged appeal quite like a coat lined in shearling. To keep from going full-fledged mountain man, avoid other bulky layers—and stick to a simple button-down and T-shirt.

Coat by A.P.C. Shirt by Converse by John Varvatos. T-shirt by Acne.

3) Herringbone

To offset the rigid pattern of a herring-bone overcoat, combine it with inviting underpinnings like a rumpled silk scarf, fine-wale cords, and suede boots. The mix of materials is smart, not pretentious.

Coat by Trussardi 1911. Turtleneck and pants by Marc Jacobs Collection. Scarf by Bally. Boots by HUGO.

4) Denim

Double-dosing on denim is no longer taboo provided your jeans and jacket are dark-rinsed and a close—but not exact—color match. A buffalo-plaid vest acts as a striking counterpoint that punctuates the potentially one-dimensional appearance of the combination.

Jacket and jeans by Diesel. Vest by Woolrich Woolen Mills. Henley by Polo by Ralph Lauren. Belt by Isaia.

5) Washed Cotton

The low-maintenance fabric isn’t just for summer, especially when worn in the form of a rumpled anorak. The jacket livens up the sweater-jeans pairing and—on blustery days—picks up where a loose knit leaves off, keeping the chill at bay.

Anorak by Bottega Veneta. Sweater by Maison Martin Margiela. Jeans by Levi’s.

6) Wool

When you wear a nubby plaid tie, avoid competing fabrics and prints. A clean, military-inspired khaki shirt is a cool canvas for the prep-school standby.

Shirt by Gap. Pants by Dolce & Gabbana. Tie by D&G. Watch by Timex. Belt by Martin Dingman.
