New York Fashion week is here and that means lots of well-dressed men running around in the snow! The fashion happening on the runway is great but the fashion on the street is even better because it’s the practical application of runway and weather. An early trend among the show visitors is herringbone.
This rugged, chevron patterned wool is great for a heavy, wind-proof overcoats. But you can also get a lighter, softer herringbone which makes a great winter flannel suit and snowy NYC is the perfect place for flannel suiting.
Most guys go in for the 4-season wool which is great and I get the logic of not wanting to spend money on a flannel suit you can only wear a couple months out of the year, but for those couple months the flannel is king and here is why. You don’t have to wear other layers with a flannel suit. No over-heating on subway or in your office. Just throw on your winter jacket and be done. Not to mention that flannel is extremely durable and barely wrinkles. Buy your flannel suit in a classic color or pattern and wear it for many freezing cold winters to come.
