Now it's's turn to inflict their shopping temptation on me! I have made a preliminary run thru over their fall winter arrivals and it seems the brand that stands out the most for me is Nom De Guerre. The rustic charm of the clothing and design, made contemporary ensures look elegant without looking old fashioned. The slim cut wool blazer has an interesting extreme slant pocket on the top which makes a cool design feature. The tailoring is sharp and fitted which ensures you look lean and mean. The grey wool waist coat is again a top choice since I am very much into the vested look this fall season. It will be great to match up to the beautiful plaid lumberjack field shirt for maximum insulation against the cold and still staying chic. Their fringe wool scarves are also a good buy with winter cosy colours of brown and charcoal grey.

Beyond, Nom De Guerre, I also spotted Martin Margiela and Traits scarves which both have their own merits and are great buys for the cold climate:-) The all around fringing of the Trait scarf is interesting, while Margiela's hand knitted version takes comfort to a new level.

Start shopping already!
